Video Spotlight: All hail the return the King of the Vlog, Ze Frank!
I’m not calling Ze Frank a hipster but he was *owning* online video, way before it was cool. Frank’s signature brand of unmanufactured kookiness first made their rounds in 2001 in the form of a birthday invitation sent to a few friends in 2001 that went viral. This creative outburst turned him into a internet sensation and got onto the watch list of the digerati.
Frank became a web video icon with the show with zefrank, which ran for exactly one year from March 17, 2006 to March 17, 2007 bringing his authentic enthusiasm to this daily installment of news, commentary, songs and funny stunts.After a hiatus from web video, Ze Frank is back! He raised over $150,000 on Kickstarter to do make a new show he describes as “same, same but different” and called “a show”. His humor is disarmingly unstudied but totally human and 100% relatable….and did I mention hilarious? Check out his TED talk, “What’s So Funny About the Web?”
