I’ve been meaning to post about YouTube star Shane Dawson. So now the Fine Brothers have brought some production value to his channel by co-writing and co-directing this weekend’s epic 11-minute send-up of the Canadian TV show DeGrassi: The Next Generation which is a U.S. cable staple. (Must be on its 4th generation by now.) The video, like every video Shane makes, was seen half a million times in less than a day on November 21st, and now has a total of over 2 million views. (Shane gets tens of millions of views a month, which is more than most shows on cable networks.) This spoof is funny in parts and sick in parts. But it’s a post-holiday Monday, right?
