Youtube…really? Random thoughts…

31 Jan

Why are we fascinated with youtube? Because it is funny, and we as the human race need a constant stream of entertainment.

The pop song he refers to I heard in Laos in 2005 and all of my Sweedish friends there knew it and thought it was the best song that ever had been written.  When I came home after 15 months overseas that dude from New Jersey had become a youtube phenomenon while mouthing the words to that song. It was bizarre as I thought no one back home would have ever heard of that song.

How do you become an anthropologist of youtube? Just by a little bit of “digging”?
