You thought it was only Brandon Hardesty that could do Hollywood re-enactments on YouTube? Not so, as this re-enactment of the famous spaghetti scene in Disney’s Lady and the Tramp by my delightful kids will aptly demonstrate.

Never Smile!


 


Production date: 5 July 2006
Playout date: 5/7/2006
Camera: Fuji Finepix
Post Production: None
Location: Home on terrace

This short piece with me singing the crocodile song from Walt Dismal’s Peter Pan as Sophie rides her blow-up croc in the pool we had mainly for me, four years later, shows up the toys that really stood the test of time (we still have the slide and the plastic truck George is on, but the rocking-horse is gone. The croc is still with us and went to France this summer – where it would have stayed if I hadn’t intervened!). In the main there is far less stuff in general on the terrace – we didn’t have even room for a pool this year!

This has been watched quite a bit, and the stats have been steady at about 500 a month.

How this got to over 1600 views is beyond me, it’s just a musical muckaround to calm down my daughter, who had woken in the night. One thing I can tell you from the stats is that almost all that was in the first two years – the second two years it has been up have had next to nothing. The line on the graph has gone flat.

It goes to show two things, I suppose. One is that YT is a bit of a lottery – a much better film which happens to be allocated less auspicious referral points will get fewer views than a purely incidental film which had no work in it. The second is that cute evidently counts for something, and using a Disney title can help. It would be interesting to see whether new life can be breathed into this film by using it a s a video response – the problem is that these days the vast majority of “heavy duty” content providers on YT are ignoring or rejecting video responses even for relevant videos, let alone speculative ones. Also it will be interesting to see if purely the act of placing this here on 3rd May 2010 has any impact on that flat line or not!

Sorry, purely nerdy spiel in this one, but it may interest you-tubers who also speculate on why some of their vids sink and others swim, or as in this case at first inexplicably swim, but then suddenly sink!
