I haven’t watch CNN in ages, for the simple fact that American news reporting is generally bullshit. Turns out I’m still right. In an effort to appear relevant, up-to-date and having their finger on the “pulse” of the latest happenings, they have a short segment on the latest “viral” internet videos. “Viral” stuff is basically shit that’s become really popular naturally, eg no marketing involved. Recently they showed the hugely popular Bad Apple along with the accompanying creation video. Here’s a clip of the show in question:
Ah, looks like I’m starting to go on a bit of a Touhou glut 🙂
This morning I found a new Touhou MAD (a MAD is a fan-made video, similar in idea to AMVs but are more general) called Bad Apple. Consisting of smooth, highly-stylised “silhouette art” featuring the characters, all I can say is that there is a lot of talent in Japan, and some of them are dedicated Touhou fans 🙂
Update: Looks like this video was on CNN recently.
Update 2: Looks like someone went and created a fan video where they carved the silhouettes into… an apple.
