As I’m busy writing an essay this evening, I’ll leave you with some videos from the past. Here’s the SNL skit Lazy Sunday. It’s loaded from the NBC site, so it takes awhile to load.
Here’s the response video Lazy Monday.
Here’s the response video Lazy Muncie.
The interesting thing about these videos is how they speak to local cultural values, while still referring to those in the preceding videos. They’re an early example of YouTube’s response feature, and show how fan participation can work in a convergence culture.
Interesting note: These response videos in particular are made by people working in the film industry. Lazy Monday includes Sam Friedlander, Mark Feuerstein, and Adam Stein, while Lazy Muncie includes Chris Cox and Kirby Heyborne.
Lazy Muncie in particular plays up the concept that these are just “regular guys” making these videos, but Chris Cox actually lived in LA for the previous 12 years, and made the trip back to Indiana for the weekend shoot.
