YouTube Spotlight: Bad Lip Reading

Bad Lip Readings NFLHey there Dactacular Fanboys and Fangirls, it is I, Chris "The Dace Man" Dace bringing you another edition of YouTube spotlight! This week we take a look into the bizarre world of Bad Lip Reading (BLR). BLR broke onto the scene in March 2011 when an anonymous Texas-based music and video producer swapped out the music and lyrics to the annoying Rebecca Black hit "Friday" and replaced them with a newly created song called "Gang War." Upon its release to the Internet via YouTube the video garnered  millions of hits and thousands of subscribes, and from there the BLR channel blasted off into YouTube stardom. The channel went on to spoof many more music videos by artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, and Michael Buble.

In September 2011 the group decided to branch out into the ever-hot topic of politics. The first political video targeted presidential hopeful Rick Perry and would go on to spoof Obama, Romney, and many other politicians before again branching off, this time into movies and TV. Today the channel has nearly 2.5 million subscribers and 41 videos. Although its most recent posting was 5 months ago, the videos are humorous classics. The group behind BLR has been nailed with three copyright claims in the past but bounced back after the claims were dropped and the videos reinstated. Their last video is embedded below. Enjoy!
