Wow... that's scary. They must be up to something. Buying all the ukuleles in the world, or perhaps making all uke videos on earth into a huge database or something. National security may be at risk...

No, but really. Why are some of these videos so uke-in' old??? Still a fun moment in the history of the internets.

Woah, why is that? I even logged out. And opened it again. And their still there. I wonder how they determine what to put up there? It can't be popularity can it? I mean there are some lame-ass-non-uke videos that get a ton of hits. I dont mean to be conspiratorial but.....someone is on to us.

I know they have someone choose what to feature on the front page every time. It usually says who they're chosen by on there. O_o;;


::Edit::
I found them haha "Featured Videos selected by: trendspottingtuesday"

You can thank them for spreading the uke love on YouTube, if you want to. x]

Gah! I've been posting about this in the "videos" section and it's been here in "Uke Talk" all along!

I have no idea why they pick that particular song of mine to feature. Perhaps because it mentions Youtube?

I love the comments being left on my vid. They've got an argument going on about how I pronounce "ukulele". - "Its YOU-koo-laylee, dums**t!"

I'm glad all these non-uke players know so much about the instrument. Guess that makes our job in uke P.R. much easier! :p

I also get a kick out of the "that's great why don't you play a guitar?" comments. Talk about your back-handed compliments! :music:

It's not an obsession! It's a BEAUTIFUL passion!!!

Woah. I just saw it now! I never scroll that far down on the youtube page, since all my subscriptions are at the top, so I only see the first one or two featured vids, and was like "WOAH, a uke vid is featured!" I had no idea that it was Uke day on youtube. That's awesome!

You know you've finally "arrived" when you get a comment on your video that says, simply..."go kill yourself".

"We got some Ruby Tuesday guacamole,
Then we bought two ukuleles...."

The last song I got stuck in my head was the Indian Nipple Song. So I was walking around the docks singing, "come watch me eat nipples, eat nipples."
I couldn't figure out why I was getting such odd looks... :o

At first I'm a little jealous (I'd pure d love to have a video view count in the 5 figure range). Then I see the slew of new comments. Things that make you go "hmmmm."


I love the comments being left on my vid. They've got an argument going on about how I pronounce "ukulele". - "Its YOU-koo-laylee, dums**t!"

Y'know, maybe they were just yanking the haole's chain but several of the island folk that I know here in Seattle have told me that when ookoolaylay gets shortened it's pronouced yewk, like on the mainland, because ooks is slang for something else entirely.

Haha, I have that song stuck in my head all the time since I saw it a week ago. Another one that'll get stuck in your head is the Indian "Benny Lava" song lol.

They're still there. Since you're in Australia, your YT home page features are different than ours (global). You can see the ukulele features listed if you'll go to the YouTube home page and up at the top click on "Site" next to "Log In/Log Out," and then click on "Global."
