Friday 29th of April 2011 is the date where most of the world will tune in to watch the wedding from Westminster Abbey. It’s the day where every girl can feel like a princess and ones thought goes towards Disney classics. An event of this magnitude will not go by unnoticed and T-Mobile has used it to create one of their characteristic events. The T-Mobile events are so popular that the created a teaser for this video and had a count down on their YouTube channel. The inspiration for the video has been taken from the popular (64 million views) video JK Wedding Entrance Dance. Maybe T-Mobile Royal Wedding get close to that as we get closer to the wedding date?
First glance at today’s post and you might think that we are writing about The Brady Bunch, but the man in focus is Nick Pitera. Perhaps you have seen Nick in the YouTube hit video “A Whole New World”, that has been seen by more than 22 million people, where he delivers an impressive cover version of the song from Disney’s Aladdin. Nick has specialized in singing Disney songs and has since he was 5 been dreaming of speaking a character in a Disney movie.
To enhance his chances of realizing his dream he proves his talent by doing a Disney medley where he sings as the: heroine, hero, sidekick, villain and choir! The medley contains classics from “The Beauty and the Beast”, “The Jungle Book” and finishes strong with the icon song “When You Wish Upon a Star”. Maybe the next time you will see (or hear) Nick it will be in a Disney film?
Some time ago we wrote about Simon Tofield and his YouTube series “Simon’s Cat”. This episode can be regarded as a Christmas Special, and perhaps Tofield has been inspired by the Disney classic “Pluto’s Christmas Tree” from 1952?
Once again we want to express our excitement when seeing the very life-like movements of the cat. Yes, the Christmas spirit is slowly settling in.
The first post of the week is about the Australian composer and self-taught musician Pogo. Nick Bertke (the 22-year-old artists’ real name) provides Disney fans and electronica fans with his movies on YouTube and his blog. He does this by taking short clips from old Disney classics, and combine it crisp trip-hop/electronica beats. It might sound very simple but if you have any insight in creating music from many small bits, you will know that it is exceptionally complicated.
Pogo became famous when his song ”Bangarang” was removede from YouTube, due to complaints by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Pogo made a statement about the matter in 2009:
”My work serves as free viral marketing to the organisations that own the films I sample from. It's high time the music industry pulls its head out of its ass, and realises that today's remix culture is an asset, not a liability. To shoot down the potential here would be utterly illogical”.
Shortly after this Sony realized his point, and “Bangarang” was back on YouTube. Besides “Bangarang” we recommend “Alice” and “Toyz Noize”. Pogo’s viral guerilla style is in full flourish, when all of his track are available on his blog for free – in all formats. Your Weekly Buzz brings you his latest creation “Wishery”, where Snow White has been remixed.
