VidCon 2012: George Watsky Talks About His Mockumentary on YouTube’s LOUD
We all know George Watsky from his rapping skills on YouTube. And now he’s venturing into new territory, teaming up with Electus’ new YouTube pop culture channel LOUD to launch the mockumentary “Watsky Makes An Album”.
“I don’t believe that trying to replicating viral success is the pathway to longevity,” he told Shira. “What I’ve been trying to do is just put out good work, like over and over and over again.” With over 50 videos on his own channel, Watsky said that the mockcumentary will give people a glimpse of his pop culture taste. “I can’t blow the guest surprise, but basically one of the through lines is that every time I get down, I watch a certain sitcom with my friend, and that dude is sort of our Neil Patrick Harris in ‘Harold and Kumar’ showing up in our darkest moments to lead us to the light.”
