HEAR YE! HEAR YE! TenEighty are back with another Weekly Round-Up!
We may have tried shouting that out in public recently, and got so many funny looks in return. But we’ve since discovered that the best thing to do when people are looking at you a bit funny is to distract them.
Oh by the way, did you hear that there have been some GREAT videos knocking around ye olde YouTube this past week? Well, we can help you there with this snazzy little list! Go on, have a look!
Bump to Buddy – Tom Fletcher
How could we possibly put together this week’s Round-Up without mentioning this lovely bit of cuteness from Tom Fletcher? Not satisfied with providing us with one viral video this week (in the form of a book announcement, if you haven’t seen it yet), he’s also gave us this extra slice of baby-related goodness.
It’s super adorable, with a song to boot (not that we’d expect anything less of a Fletcher!), and if you haven’t seen this yet, well, now’s your chance! Oh, and we’re not crying, we just have leaky eyes, honest!
The Six Feet Promise – Libby Tidley
Us TenEightyHQ folk are big fans of Libby Tidley‘s music, and this song is no exception to that! This is just what we needed on a Monday when we definitely didn’t wake up thinking it was still the weekend, struggling to face the harsh reality of having to get up before midday. Just when is a politician going to run on a platform of ‘more lie-ins’ that we can vote for, huh? Until then, though, we’ll just have to rely on wonderful things like this to get us through.
(This also gets a little bit meta, as Libby shouts us out at the end of the video but we can live with things that are a little bit meta, right guys?)
Is It Okay To Be Different? – Grist and Larsen
There seem to be a fair few body confidence videos floating around YouTube this week, but this fruit-based philosophy from Mark Grist and Guy Larsen is definitely amongst our faves! Through the medium of apples, soup, and some very, erm, convincing alligators, this video talks through how different we all are, which is always sentiment worth pushing.
A warning though: this video may make you want pancakes. Or apples. Ooh, or apple pancakes…
I Want More – JoannasCorner
This simple but effective video from Joanna from JoannasCorner has really struck a chord with us this week. Quite often, when people think of what they want more of, they turn to the physical things, but Joanna’s video focusses more on things like time, sleep and, okay, Nutella IS physical. But it is super important, we could all do with more Nutella! (Unless you have a nut allergy, obvs.)
As for what we want more of? Well, more of this sort of thing please! Plus some Nutella and apple pancakes.
Let It Be – Bertie Gilbert
It may have been hit by a couple of delays here and there, but Bertie Gilbert‘s latest film starring Dodie Clark and Savannah Brown has finally hit our subscription boxes, and it boy oh boy was worth the wait! Be warned it’s not the cheeriest of topics (death, mainly), but it has a stellar cast flexing their talent, and more Beatles references than you can shake a stick at.
At this point, we almost want Bertie to release a complete clanger to make us feel better about our own ineptitude, but no, he has to keep on hitting it out of the park. How selfish is that? UGH.
So if you haven’t seen it already, what are you waiting for? Go, go, go!
HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
We’re not quite finished yet!
In an online world where we share virtually EVERYTHING, James Hill talked about why he doesn’t show his boyfriend in his videos or other social media, and generally talks about sharing (or oversharing, as the case may be!).
Niki and Sammy Albon went for a drive to buy their mum a Mother’s Day card, and it’s simultaneously made us want to go on a road trip with them, but also never want to be in a car that they’re driving. Also, our ears hurt from all the singing.
And finally, Leena Normington uploaded a slam poem in response to Jack Howard’s Ramble About YouTube, and it’s pretty kickass. (And if you want further content inspired by Jack’s video, why not check out our feature: How To Make YouTube Engaging Again.)
