Weekend Video - Hey Boy

One of things I love most about You Tube is the dazzling variety of versions, tributes, iterations, etc. of any given subject. You start at a given point and then move laterally or haphazardly around, mining for gold.

This summer I landed on the song - "Hey Boy" by Teddybears STHLM - a Swedish rock/electronic band. (Never heard of them? Neither had I, but according to their Wikipedia entry Iggy Pop and Neneh Cherry guested on their last album.) Anyway, from there it was just a hop to CutieMish whose tribute clip while having a superficial similarity to Laurel Nakadate has now been seen over a quarter of million times (compared to Teddybears' 78,000 views) and made her the kind of You Tube celebrity Andy Warhol would have loved. Apologies for the four letter words that open her clip but enjoy the shooting, editing, and energy.
