When "real" media mimics the web

Steven | Random Thoughts | Monday, 22 September 2008

I just bumped on this video

A guy takes a picture of himself everyday for the last 17 (!) years.

Of course this isn’t new. We’ve seen this about 2 years ago when Noah K became an instant youTube hit (and internet phenomena) by posting his "everyday" that you see here below. Viewed over 10 million times, geee! 6 years worth of pictures.

So of course mister 17 years must’ve feel bad when he saw his idea being executed by someone else for only 6 years. Too bad, time to market, ..

I’m bloggin this because I just found out Noah’s everyday was mimiced in The Simpsons, and that’s just great! Here’s everyday staring Homer!

I especially found the last shot very amusing. Showing the youTube end screen were more video’s are suggested. It shows 2 videos: the everyday Homer video with a rather poor rating and only 4400 views. And a video of "Kitten smokes on toilet" with 5 stars out of 5 and a views number of over 63 million! Aaah you gotta love The Simpsons :)
