The video above is from youtuber Renetto. If you don't know who he is, well, the simplest explanation is that he's one of the "big ones", in terms of vloggers, and one of the first youtube partners. In the video above, which was posted August 15th, Renetto presents a call to action for a more collaborative youtube. His concept, which is about as loose as concept s go, is to have people post video responses about a collaborative youtube video/experience.
Somehow, I managed to stifle my laughter.
Seriously, I LOVE how the little guy wallows in mediocrity with his high-concept, collaborative projects, and as soon as a youtube partner with a few tens of thousands of subscribers has an idea along the same creative venue--BOOM--say hello even MORE obscurity.
I posted two videos as responses to Renetto's. These videos, in my opinion, are shining examples of what a creative, collaborative youtube should be. It is unlikely that Renetto will view this videos, much less accept them as video responses ... even more unlikely is the random chance that this youtube partner recognizes the quality of collaborative work that he is now trying to duplicate.
But that's pretty much how the story goes, isn't it?
