It’s a fact that YouTube, as a modern media monster, is bound to create a new generation of celebrity. Therefore, it seems only natural that other YouTube contributors will be the first to try to jump on the success bandwagon of their peers. 

By now, we have all heard of the success of "David After Dentist," with its astounding 13 million hits after 1 month. Hot off the heels of its success, mixers have mashed up "David" with "Kittens Inspired by Kittens" and "Christian Bale Rant," two recent hits.  The amount of editing time it must take to sync additional videos is immense, but it's paying off, as the number of views for the remixes is on fire!
