YouTube Guide: Pogo’s “Scoobystep”
Scooby, Shaggy and the gang get the dubstep treatment from YouTube remix king Pogo. Jinkies! Plus: Singer/songwriter Leah Kauffman still has a crush on Obama.
With over 72 hours of footage uploaded every minute, it’s physically impossible to keep track of the content on YouTube. But in YouTube Guide, the Daily Dot will curate its five favorite finds for each workday.
1) Pogo, “Scoobystep”
Australian remix mastermind Nick “Pogo” Bertke mixes Scooby Doo sequences and soundbites with a bass-thumping dubstep sound, adding a whole new dimension to the Scooby and Shaggy shakedown. Take it from Daphne: the track wobbs with enough low-end to leave you deaf in one ear.
2) Glove and Boots, “The Pee-Wee Herman Blog”
Outrageously adventurous video bloggers Mario and Fafa throw a wrench into the wheelspin, replacing their altogether wacky format with a style that harks back to the great Pee-wee Herman’s “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.” There’s even a special guest who announces his presence by poking his head through the window!
3) Ryan Higa, “Clenching My Booty”
Comedian Ryan Higa tells the story of a man who really, really, really needs to find himself a bathroom, quick… to the tune of Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me.” Higa, we’ve been there buddy, and we feel your pain.
4) Leah Kaufman, “Still Got a Crush on Obama”
The pen and voice behind 2007’s “Crush on Obama” is back with the 2012 iteration, appropriately dubbed “Still Got a Crush on Obama,” a track that waxes poetic on the Commender in Chief’s stimulus package, Obamacare, and decision to pull out of Iraq. “Still the sexiest candidate.”
Who needs nationally televised debates when America’s two presidential candidates can duke it out on the streets of New York City’s Washington Square Park? The first matchup took place over the weekend, but just like this year’s campaign, you should expect the war to wage on until the final bell.
