In honor of YouTube’s Geek Week, we’ve made a music video about – what else? – how to more effectively convey one’s Asiatic heritage.
And hey – don’t knock Sailor Moon till you’ve tried it!
Jon Davis Gets a Sex Robot Trailer (OFFICIAL)
If people would do pretty much anything for a Klondike Bar, what would they do for a sex robot? I’m not sure but I’m pretty sure you’ll find some hilarious answer to this in the trailer for our new comedy!
Short List – Awake
This week’s short is a visual poem about being more aware of one’s day-to-day life. It’s as peaceful of a wake-up call as a person’s likely to get! Read more...
YouTube’s Geek Week is now here—six days dedicated to the best Geeky videos on YouTube. Each day has a different theme and ambassador channel and today (Aug 5) is “Global Geekery Day” and YOMYOMF is the channel in charge. Visit YouTube’s Spotlight channel page today for all videos geeky from outside the U.S. with a special spotlight on Asia.
To that end, we’ve produced a special music video for today—“How to be More Asian”—directed by our own Offender Anson Ho. Not only does the video pay trouble to all things Asian and geeky like cosplay, Godzilla, naked sushi, Bollywood dance numbers and more, but it tries to answer the age-old question that many have asked of YOMYOMF—why are we so weird and not more Asian? As you can see, we’re willing to turn over a new leaf:
That’s right—tomorrow (July 27) at 5PM PST, we will be airing the season 2 finale of our hit YouTube competition show Internet Icon live from the beautiful new YouTube space in L.A. All the top 10 contestants will be back to participate, last year’s finalists the Fus and Lana McKissack will premiere a new song honoring this year’s Icons, we’ll crown the winner and much more!
Rehearsals for the live finale.
