The Fastest Growing Teen YouTube Video: Fred

I don’t get it.  No, really, I don’t get it.

The fastest growing YouTube channel right now is produced by “Fred.”  Fred is a teenage boy who strives to be a chipmunk, or Cartman from Southpark, I can’t tell which.  He doesn’t actually want to be one of those characters, but he only uses that crazy voice in his videos. Just watch

…don’t have the volume down
…and no, it never gets better
…and yes this really is the most popular YouTube video
…Ya, I am sorry you have to watch this.


My version, and poking fun at these Fred videos:


Fred is some kid who is obsessed with Judy (who that is I have no idea) and now sells Zipits—a kind of phone.  I just wanted to update you on this fascinating, I mean, annoying, I mean, interesting trend.  I decided to make my own Fred, or Fredia video about the fact that I do not understand why this is so popular.  He was even invited as a guest on iCarly.  Yes, Fred still used his ‘voice’ on iCarly.

    actually he does not use his fred voice all the time, just when carly&sam put one of his fred videos, after that he appears as a normal teen [btw, his actual name is lucas] anyways your version is waaaayyy better.

    P.S. loved your version of the mom’s song!
