OverAnalyzers featured in VSauce’s “DONG”

February 2, 2012

I’ve been using the internet for many many years, and somehow missed the existence of this thing called VSauce. The fact that they have 500,000+ subscribers combined with the fact that it is a fascinating channel, make us feel super behind-the-curve on this one.

VSauce defines itself as “Amazing Facts & The Best of the Internet”, and since I know there are absolutely no facts conveyed in OverAnalyzers, I have to assume the latest episode of their show “DONG” (Do Online Now, Guys — Episode “Picture of Everything?”) featured us because of that second part. And that is truly noteworthy. “Mildly amusing”? Sure. “Best of the Internet”? Well, we’re blushing. Too bad it’s too late for 2011 Oscar Noms. I’d put Matei on the Academy’s shortlist.

Seriously, though, it’s difficult to make content on the internet that can hope to compete with cats falling off things, children biting fingers, and hysterical Norwegians fuming over butter shortages. So when an intelligent channel like VSauce decides to spread some intelligence around, it makes  us feel all warm ‘n’ fuzzy. Thanks to DONG, now we can’t stop thinking of all the time we were out doing stuff that we COULD have been wasting on the internet.

Because of this brief mention, Cinevore’s YouTube channel, the place to see OverAnalyzers (outside of our embedded blip feeds) has exploded overnight. If you think this is an exaggeration, I would like to point out that we spent 6 years accumulating 1,500 subscribers, and in the last 24 hours, that number has nearly quadrupled.

So, welcome to our horde of new fans! This “VSauce Army” (as they call themselves) could have given the Mongols a run for their money. We hope they like us, and that we’re not swallowed into… whatever type of thing hordes… swallow things… into.

And for those who AREN’T yet aware, Cinevore’s YouTube channel only features episodes after 90 days of exclusive run here on Cinevore.com and Cinemassacre.com. So to see all the latest episodes of OA, check out those two sites.
