Yet Another Parody Of Justin Bieber’s “Baby” Hits The Web. This Time, Everything Is Centered On Starcraft 2!
Justin Bieber’s “Baby” video stands as one of the truest definitions of online success for an artist, with 390 million views on YouTube and counting. To this day, it remains the most watched music video on the WWW.
It also stands as the perfect target for online mockery. This one in particular has been getting a lot of views recently. Titled “Banelings”, it pairs Bieber’s overplayed ditty with Starcraft 2!!! How much you are enjoying this will obviously depend on how well-acquainted you are with the game. But top marks go to the ones who created it for how slickly it has been put together.
Not Content With Having Announced The Release Of A Book, The Canadian Tween Idol Now Also Has Got A Movie In The Pipeline.
Scary news, huh?
Well, it gets even worse (or better, according to how maliciously you like to laugh out loud).
The movie will be in 3D.
“Inception” wasn’t in 3D. “The Dark Knight Rises” won’t be in 3D.
And Justin Bieber’s biopic will.
That’s all the more ridiculous because the movie will feature tons of homemade clips that have the shoddiest quality you could imagine. These will be interspersed with interviews and live performances, obviously. But they make the release of the movie in 3D all the more difficult not to scoff at.
This post wouldn’t be complete if I had omitted the movie’s delectable trailer. Sorry, guys. I promise to review a classic rock record tomorrow in order to redeem myself.
Lady Gaga Did It - She Will Go Down In History As The First Artist To Have 1 Billion Views On YouTube
As predicted by those who have long beards and just too much time on their hands, Lady Gaga is now the first artist with 1 billion views on YouTube. She won’t be alone for long, though – Justin Bieber will join her in a couple of days.
In having 1 billion video hits on YouTube, that is.
What did you think I was talking about??
Well, now she is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube alone. That’s an amazing feat, and a good reminder why she is called “The Internet Artist”.
However, she is not alone.
Justin Bieber is hot on her heels. And although experts are sure that Gaga will get to the milestone first (it is said she will reach that milestone on October 20), Bieber might have the last laugh. He averages 3.98 million views daily, and Gaga is pulling off just 2.04 million. If that pattern is unbroken, Bieber will eventually overtake her.
Just for the record, Michael Jackson is the third artist with more YouTube video views. But he is no threat to Gaga or Bieber at this point. As of this date, he has about 600 million video views.
Acrimony arose when Britney Spears became the most popular Twitter user ever, displacing Ashton Kutcher in the process. Like him or loathe him, Kutcher has always offered fans a personalized experience, answering their queries himself and interacting with them on a tangible way. On the contrary, Britney’s Twitter account has always been the kind that is kept by a marketing team from day one.
Well, Britney’s reign as the Queen of Twitter is over. She has just been toppled by Lady Gaga. How much of an improvement is that? Not that much, to be frank. But at least she is more engaging than Britney.
And we shouldn’t really complain – by the looks of it, Lady Gaga will be dethroned before too long.
Justin Bieber is racing his way to the top.
As the Goo Goo Dolls sang, “I wanna bulletproof myself”.
A Dirge-like Remix Of Justin Bieber's "U Smile" Has Ended Up Giving An Unknown Producer A Lot Of Notoriety
It’s amazing, but a producer who was fooling around with a song by the Canadian teen star has actually ended up with a viral hit in his hands.
The song in question is “U Smile”, and it has been slowed down beyond all belief (800 %, in fact). You can listen to it below, on the Soundcloud profile of the remixer (an aspiring producer named Nick Pittsinger)
Anyway, this is the song. Again – the amount of plays it has garnered is nothing short of breathtaking.
"Baby", The First Single From Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0" Has Become The Most Viewed Music Video Ever On The Internet
Just when you thought that nobody could displace Lady Gaga from her high throne and top the successes of the internet artist par excellence, along comes Justin Bieber and grabs the distinction of having the most watched online music video ever. I guess the app for keeping Bieber out of the Internet wasn’t that effective after all.
The song that has achieved that marvelous feat is no other than “Baby” (where Justin is accompanied by rapper Ludacris). Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” now lags slightly behind. I have embedded the video below. Proceed at your own discretion.
I went to the cinema the other day with Luis, one of my best friends. We both were ‘80s kids and (like most boys back then) we were bitten by the martial arts craze that hit like a cyclone on the strength of movies like “The Karate Kid”.
Thus, we went to see the remake not because we thought it would be any good but (much like the new A-Team movie) we were curious about how an icon of our generation would be presented to kids today.
Leaving aside that the movie was an obvious vehicle for Will Smith to promote his son Jaden, and that Jackie Chan did very little fighting (not to mention that the movie should have been called “The Kung Fu Kid”), we were surprised at how entertaining it was. What the heck, children and their parents were clapping and hollering all through the tournament at the end.
So, the movie went more smoothly than we expected. Except for something.
