What do Breaking Bad and Spongebob have in common? I try to assess why my channel is influenced by them.
I think it’s cuz they’re the best.
Hopefully in 20 years, intellectuals will have conversations using Breaking Bad, Spongebob Squarepants, and Pokeflirt, all in the same sentence.
Spongebob is the best of the best. It’s the best cartoon out there. It took the world by storm. Spongebob is the Bill Gates of cartoons, known all over the world, he makes billions of dollars, and he doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Spongebob is basically the Kanye West of kid’s entertainment.
Breaking Bad is kind of the same thing. It came about as the right idea, right time, right place sort of thing. Everything came together, and boom we got this amazing piece of pop culture that will live on for thousands of years yada yada yada.
Coming back to Pokeflirt’s influence.
Spongebob and Breaking Bad both employ “bossa nova,” a type of jazz which stemmed from Brazil in the early 1960’s.
If you’re familar with the “Austin Powers” theme, ‘Soul Bossa Nova,’ well yeah the Ausin Powers music is basically bossa nova haha. Also the song Break On Through by The Doors uses a bossa nova drum beat.
Basically, it’s awesome gangster elevator music that’s perfect for montage sequences. And I want my youtube videos to be awesome montage sequences. Breaking Bad has amazing montage sequences….look up any meth scene.
Spongebob has so many great montage sequences. “Art thou feeling it now Mr. Krabs?” Haha yeah Sponbebob is cool, I watched it as a kid, but now that I’m older and overly analytical, I like to study what made it so popular.
So I finished this kissing video from Santa Cruz…”Kissing Girls In Santa Cruz”…I think it’s cool…but I’m just so glad I don’t have to edit it anymore. I’m tired of it haha. I’ve been working on it for 3 months.
Editing wise, I’m very proud of it. However it’s just so different that I’m really worried about how my audience will judge it. This video has caused me so much stress lol. I’m glad it’s over with.
What I want to work on for the future, is to just build up a style of video. So that when I put something out, people are like “Ah yeah that’s the Pokeflirt I recognize,” Coming up with ‘viral’ video ideas…. It’s pretty stressful. I just want to make fun videos that get pople laughing. I want a bunch of fun awesome videos that represent an overall brand. Like Pixar or Disney, you know.
i’m excited to see how pokeflirt grows from here
