Don’t Expect YouTube to Drop Big Bucks for the Next Game of Thrones

At the 2018 Television Critics Association summer press tour, YouTube’s global head of original programming, Susanne Daniels, detailed her financial strategy in regards to original programming and how it will differ from the company’s competitors, like Amazon and Netflix.

“You’re probably not gonna see us spend that level of money for a Game of Thrones or a comparable series like Westworld,” Daniels said. “But I’ve always been a believer that you can make great shows for less and it’s not the episodic spend that can make something great.”

It’s no secret that streaming giants Netflix and Amazon are spending large sums of money to strengthen their footholds in the digital video landscape. Netflix will reportedly outspend every studio in Hollywood this year, while Amazon is dropping a whopping $ 1 billion on five seasons of their newly acquired Lord of the Rings franchise. Even Apple has been moving aggressively into scripted programming, with big development deals for an Amazing Stories reboot from Steven Spielberg, a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation novels, and a futuristic sci-fi drama starring Jason Momoa from the creator of Peaky Blinders, among others.

Wyatt noted that YouTubers “are able to livestream Nintendo content and monetize through our non-ad products,”  but said he thinks “there are ways to better improve and better optimize how they work with the creators.”

North West Asked Her Parents to Create a YouTube Beauty Tutorial

Kim Kardashian may be a social media maven — with 104 million followers on Instagram alone — but she and husband Kanye West have other plans for their four-year-old daughter North West.
In an exclusive interview with WWD on her new fragrances, Kardashian talked about the importance of social media for marketing her businesses, from Snapchat’s candid nature that allows her to share her everyday life to using Twitter to communicate with her fans. Instagram, however, is her visual mood board without a conversational aspect.
“You have to have a thick skin — which is a given,” she said pointedly, noting that she’s in no rush to have her children follow in her footsteps.
“You know, the other day it was so funny. My daughter watches so many YouTube tutorials and videos and she was unboxing the My Little Pony Colourpop collection and I thought to myself, ‘I wish I was recording this’ because her reaction was so funny. And then she did makeup on the My Little Pony that they gave and she said, ‘Mom, I want to do a YouTube video,’” Kardashian recounted.

YouTube Star Eva Gutowski Just Launched Her Debut Clothing Line

Eva Gutowski, known for her captivating YouTube channel MyLifeAsEva, has quickly become one of the biggest vloggers, with more than 8 million subscribers at only 22 years old.

For the past four years, fans have closely followed along with Gutowski’s addicting fashion, beauty and lifestyle videos. Her content spans from how to survive your first high school relationship, her morning beauty routine, travel vlogs and plenty more.

But now, Gutowski’s job description goes far beyond “YouTuber.” In February, the star published her first book, My Life as Eva: The Struggle is Real, an autobiography about the ups and downs of her first 21 years of life. She got into acting when she starred in the lightly scripted YouTube series, How to Survive High School, and now has an even bigger accomplishment under her belt: clothing designer. 

RELATED PHOTOS: UPDATED! 12 Unicorn-Inspired Beauty Products That Will Have You Jumping Over the Rainbow

Gutowski just announced the launch of her seasonal clothing collection — called It’s All Wild — that’s inspired by the influencer’s favorite travel destinations around the world.

The inaugural collection features a mix of timeless, minimalistic essentials that can be incorporated into anyone’s wardrobe: a classic tee, Bardot shorts, a neck scarf and more!

“Whether you’re at the beach, walking the city streets or cuddled up at home, the Adventure Is Here collection has everything you need to look fabulous while doing it,” reads the website’s description of it.

“This is a project I’ve been so motivated to launch for years,” Gutowski said. “Travel and timelessness mean everything to me, and making clothes that resonate with the modern it-girl is what I knew I needed to do.”

Going forward, Gutowski plans to continue adding more stylish collections, which will be named after the destination the styles were inspired by. Her first capsule is available for pre-order on ItsAllWild.com right now, and the pieces expected to ship out by August 15.

Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ Remix Just Had 2017’s Biggest YouTube Debut

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” has become a worldwide phenomenon since its release in January. With over a billion views on YouTube, the hit is looking like a top contender for song of the summer.

Even Justin Bieber is a fan. The Canadian singer lent his star power and voice to the recently recorded remix of “Despacito.” The new version features Bieber singing in Spanish for the first time and has already left its mark on YouTube since its release Sunday.

The remix audio video had approximately 20 million views in the first 24 hours since its release, making it the biggest debut of a music video on YouTube in 2017 so far, according to Billboard. 

Bieber gave fans in Puerto Rico a special surprise days after the remix’s release. The Canadian artist invited Fonsi up on stage during his Tuesday concert at José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum and the two performed their version of “Despacito” together. 

Can’t decide which version you like best? Listen to the remix with Bieber above and the original below … des-pa-citooo.

Out Online: Trans Self-Representation and Community Building on YouTube


Trans people are increasingly stepping out of the shadow of pathologization and secretiveness to tell their life stories, share information and to connect with like-minded others, using YouTube as a platform. Out Online: Trans Self-Representation and Community Building on YouTube explores the digital revolution of trans video blogging, addressing ‘trans’ in its many meanings and configurations to examine the different ways in which the body in transformation and the vlog as a medium intersect. Drawing on rich, virtual ethnographic studies of trans video blogging, the author sheds light on the ways in which the video blog (or ‘vlog’) as a multimodal medium enables trans people to tell their stories with the use of sound, text, music, and pictures – thus offering new ways to construct and archive bodily changes, and to revise the story endlessly. A groundbreaking study of the intersection between trans identity and technology, Out Online explores the transformative and therapeutic potential of the video blog as a means by which trans vloggers can emerge and develop online, using the vlog as a site for creation, intervention, community building and resistance. As such, it will appeal to social scientists and scholars of cultural and media studies with interests in gender, sexuality and embodiment.

Damon Dash Responds To Jay Z’s ‘Stream Of Consciousness’ YouTube, Spotify Diss

Jay Z debuted his latest freestyle last weekend at the Tidal X: B-Sides show. In the freestyle called “Stream of Consciousness,” the business mogul defended his streaming service by flipping the dialogue and questioning consumers’ existing support of YouTube, Apple and Spotify.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper’s lyrics went on to garner the attention of many fans , including his former business partner, Damon Dash.

During an interview this week with Dr. Boyce Watkins, Dash –- who has previously expressed his own displeasure over the practices of corporate America taking advantage of artists — shared his thoughts on Jay’s decision to take aim at his new tech rivals.

“I know Jay, and as my experience with him, whatever’s winning is what he’s going to embrace,” he admitted during the interview. “So if bringing awareness to being robbed as a culture is what’s now in style… that’s what I wanted to happen… Of course, the timing of it may make it look like he’s doing it as a marketing plan, but good. Everything that he does is a marketing plan.”

“So if being independent is a marketing plan then that’s good,” Dash continued. “And bringing awareness to being robbed so he can make money is a marketing plan, as opposed to bringing awareness to selling drugs and shooting, or ‘I’m better than you because I have more money’… Like when the most commercial person is saying that – even though he’s talking about independence at the most commercial level – I still like that’s the mentality.”

Geico Creates ‘Unskippable’ Preroll YouTube Ads That You’ll Want To Watch Till The End

After sitting through the first five unavoidable seconds of a YouTube preroll ad, most people don’t bother watching the spot till the end. But Geico is now hoping to change that with two new preroll commercials that promise to be “unskippable.”

Both Geico ads, created by The Martin Agency, cleverly place emphasis on the first five seconds, acknowledging that they only have those few moments to capture the audience’s attention.

“You can’t skip this Geico ad,” the commercial says, “because it’s already over.”

If viewers choose to continue watching, however, they’re rewarded with an unexpected and funny ending.

One of the ads features a family sitting around a dining table while another shows two friends enjoying a barbecue. Watch how the first commercial unfolds in the video above. The other ad can be viewed here:

Festive Fashion Videos: What to Watch on YouTube Right Now

Whether you’re back at work or continuing to hang at home, I’m hoping you’ve been able to keep a bit of that holiday spirit around (I’m still allowing myself to count Christmas cookies as a breakfast food and can tell you, mid-bite, it’s great). To inject a little seasonal cheer into your day, I grabbed some of the latest cheeky YouTube videos that celebrate style.

LOFT worked with the funny-girl duo SRSLY to produce a slew of holiday content, including this dressing room convo where someone wants to land a dude and someone else just wants to get a too-small dress off her body without grave injury. If you’re tickled, you can watch the others they made here.
Hang with Gigi Hadid as she unpacks, examines, and ultimately explains why an all-in-one breakfast maker is the best gift for a musician boyfriend. It’s an adorable entry from Vogue‘s holiday series and there’s more where that came from (including Lena Dunham talking a box o’ lipsticks).
British YouTube sensation Zoella has always fascinated me, but I’ve never actually sat down to watch one of her videos until this morning. The latest shows her best pal opening the holiday gifts Z’s given her and it’s classic voyeuristic YouTube: it feels like you’ve known both of them forever, they give the same sort of gifts you’ve likely picked up for a BFF, and, bonus, you get to listen to singsong’y British accents.
If you’ve already started thinking about the perfect hair and makeup for New Year’s Eve, you’ve come to the right place. The latest in Glamour‘s Elevator Makeover series covers sparkly eyes and a messy braided topknot perfect for ladies with thick hair.

Are you back at work or still on vacation? What have you been doing to fill the time that you’re normally at your desk?

‘The Interview’ Will Reportedly Be Available On VOD Via YouTube

A day after Sony authorized screenings of “The Interview” in a limited number of theaters, it was revealed that the studio may also release the film via video-on-demand. “The Interview” will be available to rent on YouTube, according to CNN’s Brian Stelter, who reports that the deals are still in negotiations. Stelter also reports that YouTube will probably not be the only service to offer the film this way. A representative for Sony was not immediately available for comment.

Last week, it was unclear if people would ever see “The Interview.” Following terror threats made by hackers against theaters that planned to show the film, major chains like AMC Entertainment, Regal Entertainment, Cinemark, Cineplex Entertainment and Carmike Cinemas pulled “The Interview” from schedules. Sony then dropped the film from its release schedule.

Soon after, Sony was criticized by members of the Hollywood community and President Barack Obama, who called the cancellation “a mistake.” On Tuesday, Sony flipped its decision and announced that the film would make it to select theaters on Christmas Day, its previously scheduled release date. Independent movie theaters around the country amended their schedules to add showtimes.

On Tuesday, TheWrap reported that an on-demand release for “The Interview” was forthcoming to coincide with plans to show the film in more than 200 theaters nationwide. (Here’s a list of all the theaters showing “The Interview.”) There were also rumors that Sony would release “The Interview” via Crackle, the streaming video service the company owns, but that speculation proved untrue. BitTorrent also said it would allow Sony to release the film via its platform.

Co-directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, “The Interview” focuses on what happens when the C.I.A. enlists an entertainment journalist (James Franco) and his producer (Rogen) to assassinate Kim Jong Un (Randall Park). You will likely now be able to watch the comedy as Rogen and Franco probably always intended: at home with a joint.

Kutiman’s Incredible YouTube Musician Mashup Is Better Than The Sum Of Its Parts

Israeli mashup master and music producer Kutiman is back with an incredible new video entitled “GIVE IT UP.”

Kutiman, whose real name is Ophir Kutiel, has layered and edited together several YouTube video recordings from different amateur musicians to create an entirely new song that’s both groovy and awe-inspiring. The mashup takes parts of a 6-year-old girl’s improvised piano piece in the key of G minor, combines them with another woman’s stunning, silky vocals, and mixes in trombone, saxophone, drums, bass, violin, synth, cello, bassoon and guitar.

The result is a perfect blend of jazz, soul, classical, rock and jam band.

“GIVE IT UP” is a tease for Kutiman’s upcoming album “Thru-You Too,” out on Oct. 1. The album follows up on his highly acclaimed 2009 project Thru-You, a similar collage of sonic odds and ends that Time magazine included in its list of the year’s 50 best inventions.

To see more of Kutiman’s mashups, check out his YouTube page and watch “GIVE IT UP” above.

You won’t be disappointed.

Unbelievable YouTube Comment Fight Gets Glorious Reenactment (NSFW VIDEO)

YouTube comments may have hit a new low with the exchange that inspired this latest “Reconstruction” by Dead Parrot.

On a video about the death of Nelson Mandela, one ill-informed mourner sparked the ire of another commenter who actually knew who Nelson Mandela was… and that he didn’t appear in any of the “Almighty” movies.

Their exchange is jaw-dropping enough, but reenacted by Grahame Edwards and Eryl Lloyd Parry, it becomes otherworldly in the best possible way.

As far as we’re concerned, this is the only reason YouTube comments still exist.

This Tribute To Late Teen YouTube Star Zach Sobiech Is Guaranteed To Make You Cry

Some people continue to inspire, even after they’ve left us.

That can be said for Zach Sobiech, the 18-year-old singer and songwriter whose YouTube hit, “Clouds,” went viral last December and, at one point, reached No. 1 on iTunes.

Sobiech lost his battle to a rare form of cancer this past May, but his legacy has continued to touch the hearts of people across the globe.

On Thursday night, a choir of about 5,000 singers came together to sing a triumphant version of “Clouds” at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. The event, held one year after “Clouds” hit YouTube, was organized by local radio station, KS95.

In the crowd were Sobiech’s parents, Laura and Rob Sobiech, and his girlfriend, Amy Adamle.

Everybody came together, and it was for Zach, and it was for everyone in the room,” Rob Sobiech told the Pioneer Press. “And it was for other kids who have cancer.”

“I know [Zach is] smiling right now,” Adamle added, “just like all of us are.”

Watch the incredible performance of “Clouds” in the video above.
