Another 21-year-old singer
Her name is Laina and she just turned 21 yesterday. She created a fan video for a Justin Bieber contest. It is quite popular.




She then did her own spin on "Call Me Maybe."

She spawned a meme.

Quote:YouTuber wzr0713’s parody song, marked by its clingly, stalker-like lyrics, instantly drew attention from the viewers on YouTube and Reddit, many of whom wondered about the girl’s true intention behind making the video. In less than 48 hours of upload, the video received more than 1.35 million views.

On the following day of June 7th, Redditor yeahhtoast submitted a link to the YouTube video in a thread titled “Overly Attached Girlfriend,”[11] which generated more than 800 comments in the span of seven hours as well as a Quickmeme page

Quote:Later that same day, a parody Twitter account[8] (@attachedGF) was launched to curate some of the notable captions from the series and a similar single topic Tumblr blog[9] was created on the following day.

...On June 16th, the description for the “JB fan video” on YouTube was updated with links to Walker’s new Twitter account and Facebook page. The same day, Walker published her first tweet acknowledging the video’s success:

"I'm always amused by the @OvrlyAttachdGF tweets. Then I realize my face is associated with it and I'm slightly disturbed. Still awesome."

OK ...very entertaining...Big Grin
Is it Hyperbole to say there is some genius comedic skill and timing to both those vids?
...She's also quite attractive when she's not holding that 'psycho girlfriend' visage LOL

She has nearly 17K Twitter followers now.

On the 20th she tweeted:

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@TromBen31 If I get a new car, there's no way I'm passing up the chance to get a Kia Soul. #DreamCar

Audi of America responded:

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

@laina622 Why aim low?

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi Are you going to give me an offer I can't refuse? I'm in love with Kia Souls!

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi My only defense is rapping hamsters. This is awkward.

The 21st:

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

What we said while twitter was down: we're supporting #ffthefilm, we don't want @laina622 to get a Kia, and this: http://twitpic.com/9yyrq4

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi The Kia Soul would make me look so awesome. It's also affordable. And how am I supposed to pass up speakers that light up?

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

@laina622 Light up or sound good: http://twitpic.com/9yz9te The choice is yours.

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi Money still in my pocket with a cool car or in debt with a car that MIGHT be slightly cooler: the choice is yours.

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

@laina622 Couldn't abide the thought of you being in debt, so....light-up speakers it is!

The 22nd:

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi I'm willing to compromise...

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

@laina622 Your mooted compromise is sadly belayed by your actions: following Kia and not us? That's just sad Sad

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi Let's make a deal. I follow you, I get a free car.

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

We should let the good people of Twitter chime in on this on

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

The good people of Twitter have spoken and they said: #AudiforLaina

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi Followed. Your move.

Quote:Audi ‏@Audi

@laina622 You follow us and suddenly Twitter makes sense. Coincidence?

Quote:Laina ‏@laina622

@Audi I'm not a fan of awkward silence. Well, actually, that's not true at all... But still.


Since then people have been tweeting #audiforlaina and they tried to trend it tonight.


Quote:Max Collins ‏@AtomicLizard

@laina622 is the best driver because she never blinks #AudiforLaina

Quote:Joel Shinness ‏@JoelShinness

@laina622 is a great driver. I've only seen her drive very slowly and carefully around my block. #WaitAMinute #AudiForLaina.[/qutoe] [quote]Kris Behof-Stormberg ‏@stormy_mountain

Quote:@HayliMetter Hitler's rant hearing @laina622 wanting a free Audi. Watch it on PC to see subtitles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtFO81JP2...ature=plcp #audiforlaina

Quote:Isiah Victorian ‏@IsiahVictorian

I just followed you. And this is crazy. But give her the car. She's a real nice lady. @laina622 @Audi #AudiForLaina

Quote:Jason Soy ‏@JasonSoy

Wait, what is #AudiforLaina? Are we getting @laina622 an Audi cause she was bullied on a school bus?

Quote:Harry Bennett ‏@Harryb412

MIGHT AS WELL BANDWAGON #AudiforLaina I assume this is for a good cause or w/e @laina622 #initfortheretweets

Quote:Jay pichardo ‏@JayPichardo

What's this #AudiForLaina thing about ?

It is a spontaneously good video after all. If she gets a car out of this then good for her.. Big Grin

*and by spontaneous I mean it's entertaining at first watch and not she created it spontaneously.
