The Real Value Behind Celebrity Videos
Technology is everywhere; it has pervaded all parts of our existence. What amuses me more than anything else is that technology is a constant source of entertainment for all of us. The website YouTube is one site that is dedicated solely to the use of personal videos that are viewed for recreational purposes only. This is a site where you can find a video on just about any topic that you want. What are the most popular videos on YouTube? We probably live vicariously when we watch videos of celebrities. That is why celebrity and gossip related videos do the best.
But what is it about celebrities that wants us to know everything about them? The celebrity lifestyle is one that is deemed unattainable by the average American, so being able to get a snapshot of what a day in the life of a celebrity is like is very entertaining. Celebrities are admired and they are not only famous but they also are among the wealthiest people on the planet. For people that don’t have a lot of money, being able to look at the lives of the rich and famous is an extremely entertaining venture.
There are many kinds of celebrity videos. Some are interviews, other are bloopers while still others are candid images of your favorite hero. Most often, regardless of what the actual topic is of the video, these are the funniest videos available to the general public. Outtakes are a very comical way to see a celebrity act a little more human by creating goofs and slip-ups while on camera. Celebrities are often viewed as being perfect entities, so when these goofs are caught in film, it is very funny for the viewing public. Real life makes us all undergo a lot of goof ups. So celebrities cannot be expected to be any different.
People love to see their favorite celebrities embattled in real life situations. When a layperson can catch a glimpse of a marital fight between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, or see pop icons bleaching their children’s teeth or threatening to knock out the paparazzi, the public finds this very funny. What is humor to one may not be too funny to another. But as long as matters do not get outrageous, surely we like to laugh a little at the expense of our favorite celebrities. No longer are these iconic celebrities viewed as perfect creatures that make no mistakes, when their goofs and dramas are caught on film. There is a certain degree of reassurance we all feel about ourselves when we see celebrities behaving as we would have.
