Yes, Big Brother, like many actual fandoms, dabbles in the fan vids. And when I say "dabbles" what I really mean is "makes hundreds of slow-mo vids of Will and Janelle". Many of these tributes are bad. Some enjoyably so, some...less so. And many are painfully sincere. Note: I can't actually vouch for the badness of these as I've yet to make it through any of them a single time without cracking up and having to shut them down out of embarrassment.
Sometimes, John Mayer gets involved.Will and Janelle - Slow Dancing in Burning Room
Sometimes, they rip off sappy movies, all the better to make the vids EVEN harder to watch.Will and Janelle - Love Actually
Sometimes, Will sings...badly.Will and Janelle - Green Eyes
But many times BB vids can be quite awesome, and can force you to watch them in a daze, hypnotically, over and over again at 2 in the morning.
They can recap the final week of the show via techno music.BB7 Weekly Recap
They can show an occasional glimpse of self-awareness by knowingly
embracing the cheese.Will and Howie - How Deep Is Your Love
And many, many of them pay tribute to the awesomeness that is Janelle.Janelle=Ass-Kickery, She's Conceited, She's Got a ReasonHer milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.She wins. And wins. And wins.
Some people even properly appreciate Chill Town, and come up with the best BB fanvid in existence. They can also make us laugh with Scott(Savage) and Bunky cameos.Forgot About Chill - Dr. Dre/Em=Dr. Will/Boogie=BRILLIANCE
A good tribute can also make fun of James! And Janelle can link to it when she's drunk posting on Survivor Sucks!James - Shut the Fuck Up
And some of them are actually quite unironically enjoyable and cute...even if they still manage to make Kaysar sound incredibly self-righteous.Sov 3 Tribute
So, anyone else who's delved into tribute world and sees any glaring omissions (so um, Julie and Fox pretty much), add to the list. And anyone who wants to learn more about bad tribute vids, get thee to youtube and start searching. Trust me, you won't have to look hard.
So, in looking through our list of interests, one that I think really needs clarification for all, is bad tribute vids.
