Sheesh, I don't even know where to start! I have been working on this tribute for months and it all kinda seems like a blur, now that it's all done.
I have wanting to do another tribute video for years (even since I did the first Tribute video back in 2008) but I didn't want to rush it and I really wanted it to be a sincere and GOOD tribute, not just something I threw together. So this has been a work in progress for a LONG time, and I am very VERY stoked on the way that it turned out! My first tribute video was a tribute to the musicians and songs that got me started on drums and kept me inspired, THIS tribute is dedicated to the incredible platform that gave media back to the people and made it possible for ANY innovation to be seen worldwide. Unfortunately Google or YouTube don't really have songs or media that I could "cover", so I thought I'd pick some viral videos that came out over the past few years and do a mash-up.. I started doing this months ago and I'm so stoked that it came out exactly as I initially pictured it.
For some more detailed background around this video, just check out the "making of" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTD29y...
I initially recorded this song as part of my new series (due for release within the next few weeks.. it's all recorded, just busy with the post production now) but I decided to release it early and as a stand-alone video, just to say thank you to the incredible support from you guys that has enabled my channel to reach 100,000,000 views. I cannot get this into my head and I am incredibly grateful.
(Also, that ridiculously awkward stare somewhere in the middle of this song is a shout-out to Adventure Drums.. if you haven't seen him, check him out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVpJZY...)
