We’re back and better than ever!
Well, we’re definitely BACK, but quality-wise you’re just going to have to read to the end to judge.
This week we’ve got proposals, fame, singing and education – YouTubers across the land have been very, very busy.
Yes – Tim Kellner
Beautiful visuals, beautiful audio, beautiful people – this video from Tim Kellner has it all.
Telling his girlfriend that he wanted to film a romantic video in Chicago, Tim takes us along as they wander around the city and generally have a really great time. SO great, he even pops a certain question at the end.
Settle down, grab a tissue (that sounds rude, it wasn’t meant to be), watch the video and then write “omg relationship goals <3” in the comment section.
The Time I Became Subconsciously Famous | JadeScreen – Jade Stallworthy
Old photos coming back to haunt us is never a pleasant experience. That bowl haircut? Yeah, preserved forever, thanks to the power of technology. That period of your life when your face still hadn’t grown into your nose yet? OK, maybe we’re getting a little too personal here.
Jade Stallworthy’s old photo wasn’t just whipped out by an over-enthusiastic relative at a party. Oh no, hers appeared on Buzzfeed and subsequently the Daily Mail. Thankfully it wasn’t particularly embarrassing, just a bit of a shock (and is actually part of a pretty cool photography project by a now-famous artist).
As surprise fame goes, Jade did pretty well. Now lets all go back through our Facebook tagged photos and really consider what we do and don’t want on the internet…
Can’t Help Falling in Love // BATHROOM BUSKING – Bethshake
The Bathtub Busking campaign continues with this delightful instalment from Bethany.
Our favourite bit of this video? You mean apart from her voice, her amazing jumper, the statement red wall and the artfully arranged toiletries in the background? Yeah, our favourite bit is the big reveal at the end (no, not another proposal – we mean the bit where she divulges that she’s been sitting in a puddle of water the whole time.)
*Cracks cheesy joke about being unable to help falling in love with her*
Language Facts :D – PotterMoosh
“…And chicken? Chicken is just chicken.” – Lindsey Williams (for more context you’ll just have to watch the damn video.)
Lindsey studied linguistics at university and is desperate to impart everything she’s learned before it disappears from the depths of her memory. She’s great.
It’s fascinating stuff, including a whole section on the different ways we use the letter ‘r’ and why and where we put them. She also explores why some words we use today are French and why some are from old English – history lessons haven’t been this fun for a while, kids.
And while this is really childish, there’s something really funny about hearing old English words said out loud. Like, imagine today’s vloggers doing haul videos in old English. Ye olde cute candles.
So Hot (ft. MadManFM) – Tasty Llama Yoghurt
Three men, sultry music and some hair flicking in slow motion – the latest video from Tasty Llama Yoghurt is HAWT.
There’s not much more we can say that won’t give this video away but, rest assured, you may get a little excited, warm under the collar and burst into flames. Or none of the above – there really isn’t more to say that won’t ruin the gag, we’re just saying words now to fill space.
OR we could just discuss Tasty Llama Yoghurt as a name itself? Where does it originate? Whose warped mind decided it would be a great choice for a YouTube channel? The Lightfoot brothers (Ant and Ali) have a lot to answer for.
Rocky Applebee and her friend Kayleigh recorded this cover of Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend over a year ago, but it’s just resurfaced as she’s spruced up her channel a touch. Only a minute long, it’s a lovely little video with some excellent voices.
Watching Louis Cole’s vlogs can be a difficult experience in that it’s great that he’s doing all of this stuff but COME ON DUDE, you’re making us all look bad. Snowboarding, going up some big tower thing AND scuba diving with sharks all in one day? Like, can he just stop doing stuff for two seconds.
“The moral of this story is that no matter how much life gets you down, there’s always a Freddo at the other side… making life better” – Jake Dudman. For more life-affirming quotes and to see a brilliant pair of braces, check out his ‘school SUCKS’ video.
