"Shit Girls Say" Goes Viral on YouTube. Episode I, Over 5 Million Views
All women talk crap. We've been doing it with/about/to each other for centuries. Now someone's probably going to make a boatload of money from our toss-off lines. How? Muy facile. Video tape dumb things women/girls say to each other and string their commentary together. What we say is so "out there," you just have to laugh and shake your head.
Shit Girls Say has been exponentially charging up its female silly credits and followers on Twitter for a few months. So the feed’s creators thought it would be hysterical to act out the particularly vapid posts, film them and then upload the result to YouTube.
Their YouTube debut was last week. Now after Episode 2, the videos, like lightening went viral and they have inspired like minded artistic spawn: others are uploading their "shit" versions, echoing and parodying the original parody, one funnier than the next. To name a few on YouTube: "Shit Black Girls Say," "Shit Gays Say," "Shit Dudes Say." You get the picture. The video clips will probably number one hundred until someone else comes along, buys up a few of them, strings these together and faster than a jack rabbit runs, gets the funding and creates a cable show! (The idea is free, folks. Come and get it! Oh, "S#*! My Dad Says" has been done already and it failed? But that was mainstream TV; the ratings were average, actually. On cable it probably would do well.)
Graydon Sheppard, the "brown-haired girl" and video star of "Shit Girls Say" created the Twitter feed and videos with his boyfriend, Kyle Humphrey. Both are writers and Sheppard is a filmmaker.Continued on the next page
