In an amazing feat, LA's cutest and greatest YouTuber out there, LisaNova has brought some of YouTube's stars together in a fun and odd little film about spamming YouTube for domination (directed by Danny Diamond). If you have no idea who DaxFlame, Smosh or Thewinekone are, you need to know about a fascinating subculture of YouTube stars, some of who get higher viewership than Cable TV shows.

The video also features BigRedAfro (he has a great local band too), Perez Hilton (who now does YouTube in addition to his blog) TheHill88 and boh3m3. Disappointedly, the first star of YouTube and friend of TheHill88, Brookers, is not included.
