Bingeworthy: Mr. Popular
Mr. Popular is a tidbit of unexpected awesomeness from Above Average. And though the six videos in the series are less than fifteen minutes altogether, they are probably the most joyful fifteen minutes you’ll spend watching videos today. Let me introduce you to Mr. Popular, the guy with the greatest, most elaborate high fives known to mankind.
Each episode is the same, Mr. Popular struts through his town, high-fiving any and everyone he comes into contact with, brightening everyone’s day, only to return home to his miserable apartment when the day is done. The punchline may be that he’s ironically sad, but the reason to watch are the high-fives. We have not gone back to the moon because our best and brightest minds have been working on these high fives.
I’m putting all the videos in a playlist for you so you won’t even have to go out of your way to watch the show. That’s my high five for you. Now, I need for you to do something for me. Watch the videos, enjoy the high fives, and then go out and high five someone else, the ultimate pay-it-forward.

Is the Kim Kardashian game a must or a miss? Play along with Mashable on tonight’s YouTube Nation.

Silence please! We’re about to begin the meeting of the fangirls and discuss the most important business of all. Hey! Harry Potter fangirls, stop casting spells and listen! Thank you. 

In the name of all the fandoms the internet is consumed by — Sherlock, Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings, the list could go on forever — we’re here to honor our leader of the pack, the animating wizard with the golden imagination, Ms. Leigh Lahav (Only Leigh) as our #WCW.

An animator and comedian based in Jerusalem, Leigh has racked up over 16 million views to her channel and just celebrated reaching over 100,000 subscribers — she’s now at 170,000 subs! — with a personal video to her fans, many of those being the men and women that comprise YouTubeNation. 


Leigh’s channel has a little something for everyone whether it be the diehard fangirls, the imaginative dreamer, the aspiring animator, or the obsessive pop culture fanatic. It was when she came out with “Sherlock Spoiled Everything,” I knew I was destined to not only be a fan of hers, but to be a major fangirl of hers, to boot. Because lets be honest, an animator with this cheeky a sense of humor is not easy to find.

In the past year, Leigh has brought to life the triumphs and tragedies of our favorite shows and the fangirls who can’t seem to get enough of them. In her videos such as “Night of the Raging Fangirls,” and “A Very Fangirl Christmas,” Leigh not only makes a space for fangirls to gather, but makes the rest of us want to fangirl too! As Leigh so beautifully puts it, on her channel, “Everything is here and too colorful and shiny to stand.” 

Her videos such as “Mean Elves,” a hilarious mashup of Mean Girls and Lord of the Rings and most recently, “Frozen is the New Black,” have gained acclaim from every magazine and blog under the sun from Huffington Post to Time to WIRED.


I always knew that Leigh’s channel was something special, and for me, her channel has become a place where I can indulge and tease the shows I both love and hate. Her parody of “The Trial of Tyrion Lannister”? Classic. Her take on Gravity? Even George Clooney would be proud. 

In the past 12 months, Leigh has wowed her viewers and expanded our expectations for cartoon sketches on YouTube. Her videos are witty, provocative, and just when you think it’s about to end, she gets you with one last joke about Sherlock and Watson being a couple, and there you go, laughing once again.

Leigh, it’s truly an honor to name you our #WCW, and when you move to Los Angeles this fall, can we make a pact that we will be the first one you call?

The Real Story Behind Sistar’s “Touch My Body”

DO NOT TOUCH THEIR BODIES OR YOU WILL DIE

Hey, professional curator and amateur gardener Alex Sargeant here. Do not be fooled by the siren call of these human-like plants. Sistar isn’t what you think they are, and if you don’t heed my advice you may not live to regret it!

I know what you’re thinking… you’re thinking, “Who does this guy think he is? Accusing my favorite K-Pop band of being hyper-intelligent plants masquerading as popstars!” Well, I’m the nature enthusiast who happened to see what all the horticulture experts never could… the root of all evil.

The beauty of plant evolution is that no one has ever seen it happen, ever. So of course we’re going to miss the point when venomous plants transition from being regular insect-eating flowers to full-blown popstars poised to take over the world.

Don’t believe me? Why don’t you go ahead and touch the body of any Sistar member. Doesn’t matter which one, because regardless of which body you touch, the result is the same… instant transformation into a poison-spewing humanoid plantlife.

Go ahead and rewatch the video a few thousand more times and you’ll notice that these deadly singing flora are never far from water and continue to multiply as the video progresses. So don’t be fooled by their floral laurels… these killer plants will leaf you dead without blinking an eye.
