The Awesomeness of Nerds

BEDA: April 6, 2010

Now, when I was coming up with the lines for the Nerd video parody of Ke$ha's 'Tik Tok', I figured most of the views would steadily increase over time because, ya know, it's a parody of a popular song.

Oh, how wrong I was.

Today, the video passed 31k views. I only had around 600 subscribers before the video went up and have since gained over 1,100 subscribers. I love you guys so, so much. I mean, 31,000 views on a video is a lot, even for a YouTuber with thousands of subscribers. And I knew the video could stand on its own, being a parody and all, but I had no idea it would be such a big flame, catching interest like a wildfire throughout Nerdfighteria.

Alan Lastufka tweeted about it.
John Green tweeted about it.
Hank Green tweeted about it multiple times.
Alex Day commented on it.
Alan even embedded the video as the main video on his channel!

Not to mention, the hundreds of nerds who tweeted the video or sent the link to their friends. The Insight on the video says that 21,000 views came from people clicking on links that were presented to them through a viral form of video sharing.


I'm still reeling in the awesomeness of the Nerd video and I will continue to post entertaining videos to keep you guys happy, not to mention some secret projects that will be revealed, actually, kinda soon!

(Follow my TWITTER to learn about them before other people!)

You've all made me smile a whole bunch this past week.

  1. That was really an amazing video! I showed about 5 of my friends, who I had previously also gotten into Doctor Who. It was also surprisingly good, seeing as you didn't use Auto-Tune. I've thought about making a parody video for a long time, but I don't have the singing talent OR the resources.

    But congratulations on all of this Travis! Even though I haven't followed you from the beginning, I've seen all of your videos and I know you have enough talent to have as much of a chance of becoming a "Youtube Star" as SxePhil or the VlogBrothers. (Okay, maybe not the latter ;) )

    French the llama, I've rambled on long enough!
    Once again, congratulations!
