That Chrome advert with that Jamal Kid who has ‘made it big’.
Recognize him?... This kid lip synched loads of songs like teenage dream – Katy Perry.. Justin Bieber – Baby.. And got millions of views for it! A few months later, a video was uploaded of himself with 50 cent lip synching a song. 50 Cent appeared out of the cupboard behind him during the video. Which just shows how even the biggest and richest stars see these videos, and it can be a way to success.
The ‘Fenton’ Video http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v =3GRSbr0EYYU Originally, everyone thought it was ‘BENTON’ that the man was shouting, but after an interview with the man who was on the video on Radio 1, he confirmed it his dogs name was actually Fenton! The video went viral after a few days of being uploaded.. And was spread through social networks such as Facebook. Since then, there have been spoofs made of the same video with the Lion King, Star Wars, Indiana Jones etc..
