More than 15 years ago, Blink 182 shocked with their video for "What's My Age Again?" that featured the band running around naked. Now, they've updated the concept for a new video that features naked women running around. "She's Out of Her Mind" hit YouTube on Thursday thanks to Spotify. The video appeared with a message that explained, "As part of the new Spotify original series, Flash Frame, Blink unveils the new video for their latest single, paying homage to a certain classic clip that helped catapult the band to early success." The video shows three women running around and passing by similar sites and people to those that the band encountered in their 2000 video.
Online video, a ubiquitous, visual, and highly shareable medium, is well-suited to crossing geographic, cultural,and linguistic barriers. Trending videos in particular,by virtue of reaching a large number of viewers in a short span of time, are powerful as both influencers and indicators of international communication flows. In this work, we study a large set of videos trending across 57 nations, collected from YouTube over a7-month period. We consider the set as a network of content flowing between nations, then develop conditional co-affiliation, a nation-nation co-affiliation index that enables a meaningful interpretation of network path length and the application of betweenness centrality. We observe a highly-interlinked network with remarkably similar co-affiliation levels between very different nations.However, Arabic-speaking nations appear more isolated, with the U.A.E.
If you are part of a lean mean bootstrapped startup like me, you may have explored different ways to create an explainer video for your new product. Going to a professional marketing firm can easily cost you at least 15K for a custom made 90 second video. Well I know I am over exaggerating here -- but really, it is a lot of money that you don't have to spend before you even have your first customer. Yes, I am sure you will get a kick-ass video, and yeah maybe their process is great and you end up with something so creative and unique. Since we are lean and all about MVP, I had a really hard time with spending this amount of money, it taking several weeks and ending up with a 90 second video clip.
