“Daft Hands” is a fan music video uploaded in 2007, the early
days of YouTube, and has gained 65 million views and widespread
notoriety over time.
Fan made music videos are common on YouTube!
From lyrics videos, which requires little effort, to videos like
this one that can still be wildly popular and entertaining: this is prime example of YouTube’s democracy.
There are seemingly endless pop culture entry-points, but the video's
real virtue is its do-it-yourselfer simplicity.
Difficult to describe, but the result is something hypnotic.
