TheReplyGirl and the new algorithm
TheReplyGirl, is the latest internets sensation who is not shy to flaunt her assets in her video reviews of other popular YouTube posts. YouTube surfers are angry at that the woman is using her assets to make money online because people are clicking her video reviews just to see her. She is paid by advertisers who know that her videos draw thousands of hits every day even from her haters. In this video she is expressing her indignation over Youtube's new algorithm which will suggest related videos based on which videos contribute to a longer overall viewing session rather than how many clicks an individual video receives. It is yet to be seen whether the new algorithm will have an effect of the earnings on such opportunists.
Project Kony 2012 - Bullsh*t?! - Scam?
While the Kony 2012 video took the world by storm last week, this video shows a self-obsessed guy expounding his 'views' on authenticity of Kony. He argues that he is willing to donate money to Kony but he has to be sure that it's not a scam and advises everyone to double check before donating. "Never follow someone blindly, educate yourself about it", he says.
EpicViral - F**king Smart!
The video is a montage of funny and eye-popping incidents comprising a drunk guy swimming in icy water (-35C), a rat stealing milk from a cat, a crazed out Justin Beiber fan, and a flock of geese playing football.
The video begins with three apocalyptic words 'The Time Has Come' and goes on to ask the views to 'Subscribe to us and join the movement to defeat RayWilliamJohnson, and become the most subscribed channel on YouTube.com'. With only words in gray colour scripted over a black background, the video has no image and visual appeal. It is surprising to see a mediocre marketing gimmick gain so many views.
How Girls Watch TV
JennaMarbles, blogger and entertainer' s latest video is on How Girls Watch TV. The two-minute video gives a sneak peek into how the fickle-minded Jenna can't even decide in what position to sit and watch TV, forget about zeroing on something good to watch. Amidst flipping through a zillion channels showings sex, food recipes, Big Bang Theory (which she obviously hates), she gets drunk while watching Real Housewives. The video ends with Jenna's message to the viewers, in falsetto, "Please subscribe to my channel and my vlog channel! I make new videos here every Wednesday and make vlogs during my majestical daily life."
These videos are picked from YouTube Trends, a feature launched by YouTube that aggregates the site's video stats.
