The kids have spent a lot of time watching the potter puppet pals … and they are quite amusing (the first few times).
What I find really interesting though is how something so ‘home grown’ can become so big – youtube stats for the ‘mysterious ticking noise’ have the number of plays up in the 50 million views! Some major TV shows don’t get that much viewing … it really shows that media is moving from large corporations over to individuals. It also highlights the viral nature of ‘this is good, I must show my friends’ – especially if it captures the interest of the school-age audience.
If you do go and have a lot, be sure to see the ‘playground’ on the site – the ‘stretch’ application is just a scream … (you can do really funny things with Snape’s nose!)
