MySpace: The Movie

Yesterday, I came across “Online parody ‘MySpace: The Movie’ helps launch amateur’s career,” an AP story that showed up in a lot of places (this link is from the Kansas City Star because it was the one that showed up first in It’s about how a kid– almost literally (he’s 21)– is apparently going to get a film deal based on several movies that he’s made.

Anyway, the one that has gotten all the best press is “MySpace: The Movie,” an 11 or so minute short that is a parody of various MySpace habits. The link here is from the YouTube site because this guy’s web site– David Lehre Productions— is getting about 1.8 million hits a day right now.

One thought on “MySpace: The Movie”

  1. I’m not sure the Myspace movie itself warrants a moive contract, but what do I know? Well, I do know that I’m not enough in the myspace audience to be the right judge. But you gotta love the phenomenon of amateur video thumbing its nose at the establishment media. What struck me was the figure of 20,000 videos uploaded a day to youtube. Let’s hope some of the self-organizing folkscentric models for making sense manage to make it available in useful ways.
