This is just whack. Seriously out of step with reality. Not the video. The video kicks it – it’s Felicia Day & Jason Charles Miller’s latest single, “Gamer Girl, Country Boy”, and you can hear it on Krypton Radio.
What’s so bent and broken is that the YouTube comments on her video are filled with venom. Fifteen hundred dislikes and counting (5,000+ likes), and the comments are filling up with Anonymous hating on it, saying she’s “ruined gaming”. She thinks that’s pretty empowering, actually, for four minutes of music video to do something of that magnitude.
We think that’s pretty impressive too, since as of this moment it’s only been viewed 305 times. So where did 5,000 likes and 1500 dislikes come from? So that’s a little puzzling. But oh well.
And check out a cameo by Grant Imahara of Myth Busters driving through in the background about two thirds of the way through. Turns out he’s a huge fan boy, and has been seen at conventions around the western end of the United States.
Anonymous hating on it is a ringing endorsement (this must be what “hacktivists” do when they’re not stealing credit card numbers from major online services). If they vilify it, it must be good! Enjoy.
