The main thought was that YouTube is becoming indispensable as the platform that catapults a performer to the realm of super-stardom. Part of this realization came from (finally) becoming clued in to the Korean rapper Psy and his YouTube hit "Gangnam Style." Hundreds of million of hits, countless spinoffs, parodies, all because a cherubic rapper from a tony suburb of Seoul posted a video. I love the idea a song in Korean can become an international hit.
The daughter found a mashup video that takes "Gangnan Style" and brings it to a video poking fun at the "Slender Man" video game. The game posits a creepy tall man with no face pursing game-players. The kid is lobbying for this game for the holidays.
