VidCon 2015 has arrived! Cheryl and I sadly can’t attend this year. But you know who is attending as a featured creator? Andrew Gunadie aka Gunnarolla! He’ll be moderating the Geography and the Internet panel on Friday about being a creator that doesn’t live in LA or a major city. I’m super bummed to be missing the panel so I decided to share some of my favorite Gunnarolla videos to feel less bummed. These are in no particular order so enjoy!
Granola – This was one of the songs I heard of Andrew’s when he came out for the Team Andrew 2011 Tour. It stuck in my head and I’m sure it’ll stick in your too.
Sense No Make English – Whenever someone makes a comment about how ridiculous and racist internet or YouTube comments can be I direct them to this video. It simultaneously makes me laugh and super sad at the same time. Oh Internet.
Made For Study English – Most Kpop fans will never forget that fateful night when Seungri of Big Bang made a Twitter account while living it up in Las Vegas during the winter of 2012. Sadly most if not all those tweets were deleted but they will forever live on in song.
Comic Sans – Another Team Andrew collab? About a font? You betcha. I hate Comic Sans but this song makes me hate it a little bit less.
My Only Love – This came out shortly after the hype of Sailor Moon Crystal was at an all time high (then quickly died off cause Crystal is… special). Regardless! Sailor Moon dubbed holds a special place in my heart from my childhood and this song was one of my favs so a Gunnarolla cover was much appreciated.
New State Plates: New York – I love me a good Team Andrew collab video and their American License plate series had me rolling my eyes at all the bad and often forced jokes. I’m a sucker for puns as well and there is no shortage of them here. Other favorites in the series: Oregon, California, Nevada & Idaho. HOWEVER the series only reach 49 of the 50 states. Michigan is slated for 2024. Seriously.
Konkai – This was the 2nd in Andrew’s A-Pop project and is one of my favorite songs of his so far. The ethereal editing really adds to the overall feel of the song and I love that he was able to collaborate with Japanese Youtuber HetteraBBoy for this project.
He’ll Never Be a Real Canadian – Closing out with a throwback video on Andrew realizing he is in fact ASIAN.
Japan/Seoul Trip – I LOVED this travel series of video blogs. Japan and Korea are the only 2 places I’ve been outside of North America and it made me miss traveling so much. He’s gone on more adventures abroad thanks to Contiki so make sure you check those series out as well!
