Here’s my video pitch for BuzzFeed: A group of YouTube commenters who are actually witty and charming eating cake, or possibly some sort of fight to the death

You know society is digitally progressing at a rapid rate when you’re starting to be nostalgic over YouTube videos. No, I’m not talking about perky 19-year-olds talking about their makeup routines. I’m too beautiful for makeup. I am talking about BuzzFeed and similar channels where they take groups of people and have them do some sort of task. It ranges from eating Indian food to watching Bridezillas. It can go to the extreme like, I don’t know, watching porn with porn stars. No, I’m not going to link to that video. Instead, here’s a very touching Vienna Teng song. Enjoy, and you’re welcome.

Now, naturally, while browsing through the countless sea of videos from what I’m going to call shameless content mills, I went with the very familiar theme of nostalgia. The first two are obvious. PSAs remind me of my childhood and, well, I’m Asian. The last one, eh. I knew I wanted to link to a BuzzFeed video, but I wasn’t naturally drawn to any of them. In a quick panic, I chose the German food taste test one because I thought it was funny, and I took a German class in college five years ago. Eh, it counts.

  1. Haha BuzzFeed. I tend to dislike their articles, but I have never looked at their videos. There are some of those amusing videos out there which are amusing to “most of the internet” but I am one of those cynical people who generally does not find that stuff as funny as other people do.

    The last video reminds me of a guy Nick has been watching on YouTube whose username is laowhy86 – he is an American who married a Chinese woman and lives in China. A lot of his videos are about the differences between their cultures and have titles like “Chinese woman tries American snacks for the first time”, etc.

  2. Yes! Another Vienna Teng fan! I have loved her since her second album! She’s amazing and I even got to see and meet her a few years ago when she was in Dallas. She’s amazing live!

  3. “I’m too beautiful for makeup.” This should’ve been my high school motto.
    I actually spend a lot of time watching BuzzFeed videos, whether on their channels or through Facebook because they pop up a lot on my feed.
    Also, I was a big fan of Ladylike before Safiya left lol. But I like their other channels too; the Try Guys are hilarious!
