LP, or the ‘Let’s Play’ genre has made a full-scale assault on YouTube. Forget Beiber, forget Gaga, forget Grumpy Cat. It’s video gamers recording themselves playing video games that rate the most subscribers and the most views in the billion dollar landscape of digital video. Sitting atop the LP pinnacle, is a slightly affected Sweedish savant, Felix, Kjellberg, otherwise known as PewDiePie. With over 38 million subscribers, he reigns supreme.

Give a Man a Quarter and He Can Play One Game, Teach Him to Write in Basic and He Can Feed a Village (Really), They Don’t Make Video Games the Way They Used To (and Get Off My Lawn!), Russ Can’t Help Falling In Love…Again…, Is This the Text That Launched a Thousand Ships?, How Rabbits From Certain Places Can Help You Recover Your Voice, How Many Meppers Does It Take to Get One Mepper a Date, Angry Pictures are Angry, and Chemistry = Not Fat.
Watch closely. This is the only Mep reference you’re likely to see to the Angry Birds smartphone gaming phenomenon. It’s so artfully done, though, that I can’t deny it entry.
