Even YouTube Stars Sell Out

I'm not gonna complain too much here, simply because, if I made a kick-ass viral video, and McDonalds asked me to create another one, starring me and my buddy, and they were going to pay me a with a boatload of McNuggets, well I would say yes.

That being said, there's something to be said for advertising that is based around cool shit found on the web. Take that boss! I am doing research by watching hundreds of adorable videos of kitties with socks on their head.

What I love about the times we live in, is how you can become a sensation overnight. All it takes is a bit of Yankee ingenuity and a digital video camera. Need more proof? Ask a little South African friend of Peter Jackson, Neil Blomkamp, who made the awesome movie District 9 based off a short found online.

Oh yeah and that movie Tron that's coming out and going to smash all sorts of records? Yeah that started out as a proof of concept video that debuted, where else but YouTube.

Let's hope the same strategy works for this.

Looks like I'll still be a nerd in 2011

E3 was this week and everyday just keeps getting better for me. Nintendo's roster alone is full of retro re-do's of some classic games from my generation designed to give those of us a full on 8-bit boner. Plus a whole new Zelda game, a dark take on Mickey Mouse, a sequel to Dead Space, a tease at a new Twisted Metal Game. Whew. I could go on, or I could just show you the money shots.
