Featuring Jenna Marballs as Miley in Wrecking Ball, Kid President being rad, Smosh in their undies, and Epic Meal Time hanging out with Overly Attached Girlfriend, prepare for some epic-level awesomeness from YouTube’s 2013 mashup.
Also featured: Prancercise wonders what the fox says, if you’re looking carefully, you’ll spot GloZell in a horsemask, and there’s cameos from Jimmy Fallon, Macklemore, Jamie Oliver, and the Cookie Monster.
Enough of the writing, time to get watching!
And check out all the behind-the-scenes action here:
Amy and Julie Zhang are Chinese Kiwis who live in London. Online, they’re known as The Dumpling Sisters and star in their own YouTube videos about delicious fusion food, their mum, and adventures in the big city.
I was introduced to them when they were rallying for votes because they’d made the finals of Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Food Tube Star. They are the only finalists to represent NZ out of more than 250 entries worldwide!
It’s awesome to see Kiwis fly, so have a watch of their video and click the ‘like’ button on YouTube to show your support in the competition.
It closes this Monday, 23 September, at 11 am NZ time. Please let your friends and family know about this and lets see these lovely ladies take out the competition!
There’s nothing like a video of people doing crazy dancing across the globe to remind you that we’re actually all just human beings.
According to his website, Matt is a 35-year-old “deadbeat from Connecticut” who’s friend started taking video while Matt danced. Badly. In Hanoi. The video viralled, Matt got a sponsor, and all of a sudden, he’s making videos of his dancing all across the world.
The original now has almost 3 million views
And then he repeated the experience in 2006.
Now, 2012, and there’s a brand new Where The Hell Is Matt? for us to enjoy.
I think it’s awesome when people re-tell classic stories. I don’t even mind a modern twist or two.
How about when one combines two of my favourite things: Amusing YouTube clips and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice? Yes please! So you know I’m going to love The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which is basically a modern take, with a gorgeous Lizze and her two sisters (the older, Jane, a doting sweetheart, the younger, Lydia, a loveable “whore”.)
Episode 1: My Name is Lizzie Bennet
Episode 2: My Sisters: Problematic to Practically Perfect
Episode 3: My Parents: Opposingly Supportive
Episode 4: Bing Lee and his 500 Teenage Prostitutes
There’s a video that’s in the beginning stages of viral – and it won’t be too long before it becomes a fully fledged “thing”.
The reason for the viral is partially because the video is very funny, partially because it’s very odd.
An Indonesian woman dances in heels and a short skirt, on butter, to Adele’s Someone Like You.
Just watch the video.
Melati Suryodarmo is a performance artist. In the original piece, she dances for 20 minutes on 20 blocks of butter to Indonesian shamanistic drums. When a YouTuber got hold of the clip, he replaced the original music with Adele, and so a viral video was born.
Here she is, dancing to Skrillex. It’s not quite as poignant though.
And incase you were wondering, here’s the original butter dance, complete with all the, erm, natural sound effects.
