Cool Video – The Next Level of User Generated Content

I told you I would be back to my regular blogging tricks, didn’t I? Consider this a mini-post since I’m working on a few longer thought pieces for this week, including a sweet video for Ted Tuesdays!

Jesse found this video online a few days ago, and I keep finding myself looking it up online and watching it. It’s a tribute to uber-composer John William who is responsible for creating some of the most memorable film scores in history including: Star Wars, Superman, Born on the Fourth of July, Harry Potter, Jaws and Indiana Jones.
So the song shows Toronto-native Corey Vidal singing a Star Wars song accapella incorporating a few of John William’s tunes including ET, Jaws, Superman, and Indiana Jones. I was actually going to try to interview Corey to find out some more about him and what he did but then I found his handy FAQ’s and decided to go the lazy route. Everybody wins!

There have been a bunch of people who have tried to take away from the awesomeness of this video because Corey used the help of a company to produce it and he’s lip synching, and to that I say: who cares? The end result was that I was hugely entertained for four minutes, and it’s quite clever.

Let me know what you think, maybe you think it’s lame, but I think it’s such a cool example of how far we’ve come in terms of user generated contented.

My favorite part about working in New Media is being able to see and write about how people use it to express their creativity.

What do you think?

    Hey lady!

    We interviewed Corey last week for CP24/CTV and this week’s episode of commandN – I LOVE this video…he did an awesome job.

    Looking forward to hanging out in a couple of weeks…if you can, save Friday, Dec. 12th for a little shin-dig.
