Yooouuutuuube

No, that’s not a typo, I mean Yooouuutuuube by artist and programmer David Kraftsow.  It allows users to tile and playback YouTube videos frame by frame.

I ran some of my YouTube videos through Yooouuutuuube and here’s what I got:

Hit Me Britney One More Time – Hepnova’s Britney homage/parody/cover/pastiche. LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!

So Chris Crocker’s video gets 8.2 million views in just over a week AND he gets a TV deal. Meanwhile, the Avaaz video I worked on, Stop the Clash of Civilizations has reached 1.4 million views in about 6 months.

Lessons learned – I think it’s time to trade in the activist chic for a bottle of peroxide and some cheap eyeliner. I want my Warholian 15 minutes of fame too! Let’s keep Britney in our thoughts and prayers. She is going through a hard time you know. We are all lucky bastards that she even performed for us. And check out our track and pass it on.

Also playing on YouTube, Vimeo, MySpaceTV, BlipTV, and Google Video.

Thanks to Progressive Source Communications and for internet voters around the world for the recognition. Props also to Agit-Pop Communications, who co-produced the video, and special thanks to DJ Spooky for providing the music.
