boxxybabee - the new Lonelygirl15?


Meet the first YouTube idol for 2009 - boxxybabee

Dare I admit it, but I'm currently obsessed with this young lady called boxxybabee and her webcam antics on YouTube. Boxxy was a meme's and 40+ video responses as well as mashup/remixes

As of January 14th boxxybabee holds the following status on YouTube :

  • #1 - Most Subscribed (This Week)
  • #2 - Most Subscribed (This Month)
  • #19 - Most Viewed (This Week)

    But is she just too good to be real? Is this merely a recruitment phase to something bigger - are we witnessing another lonelygirl15?

    Or is Boxxy just simply another teen with a webcam looking for attention? It's not the first time a forum user has emerged as a cult celebrity. Previously a girl by the name of 'cracky-chan' achieved a cult following on image board when she posted a number of photo's of herself through 2005-2006.

    Thundercats Fan Trailer

    Why is it that some fan made trailers get more views than the actual real trailers for movies? Maybe it's because they kick ass like this one for Thundercats movie which isn't even green lit yet. Fans will be fans.

    And some not so good like below

    But between them they have gathers 2M views. I think all studios should encourage fans to create trailers for films that have only just been announced. Why not get the marketing started as early as possible? Especially now with so many movies being made from video games, books and TV shows. They all have fan bases waiting to see something visual.
