Posted by By Not_It at 26 July, at 10 : 20 AM Print

Let’s face it; YouTube sucks you in, it is a vortex of fascinating videos, some awesome, some awesomely disturbing! Below are the top 5 people who got famous (warranted or not) strictly through YouTube. Enjoy!

#5 David After The Dentist

Do you remember David? This video skyrocketed on YouTube when his dad posted up this post-dental video. Comments skyrocketed too; ranging from kind, to downright hateful. Anyone give kudos for the guy actually taking his kid to the dentist? Sheesh!

#4 Charlie Bit Me

Amazingly enough, “Charlie Bit My Finger” now has a Wikipedia page. This video is not only viral, but super-cute! The thing that amazed me most, is the older boy doesn’t get angry at the baby. If it were me and my brother, he’d a smacked me… yeah, nice guy… But little Charlie, he’s got a good big brother!

#3 Star Wars Kid

Wow… moves and sound effects… The latest comment on this video is: “The virgin is strong in this one. hmmmmmmmm.” Oh yeah, ‘nuf said.

#2 Girl Crying Over Justin Bieber

Millions fell in love with Cody, the little girl who fell in love with Justin, over 12 million, in fact! Even Bieber took notice, and with Jimmy Kimmel‘s help, Justin Bieber got to meet his future wife… well, little Cody thinks so anyway!

#1 Justin Bieber

The mini-powerhouse of music, Justin Bieber grew wicked-fast into fame on youtube. I (like pretty much everyone else) have been hearing the name Justin Bieber for a while now. He’s become so popular that he has fans and haters!

Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and YouTube… in the beginning, no one thought they would be anything more than another way to waste your time… I would write more, but my video camera just finished charging; gotta run!

    Whoever did their research on this fails. Star Wars Kid was Pre-YouTube by YEARS. Which is millenia in internet time.
