This was another example of the things early youtubers did in the community, in this case it was a response to a YouTuber called Bowiechick who did a video of herself performing a song speeded up and named it using a string of verbs from the song. When you did, in the early days of YT, a video response, it automatically took the name of the video you were responding to and added the word “re” in front in the title. Now it seems to make no sense as all the responses have been decoupled, but as a memory of the features YouTube used to have when it was by the people for the people, and not Corporate special interests as it is today. Today we have been stabbed in the back, and most earlier YouTuber shave fallen by the wayside.
Unlike many of the early YT community Bowiechick is still producing videos, and you can easily find her channel.
