When this video got uploaded around 11pm on Sunday night, I don’t think anybody could have possibly expected how epic in scope this was actually going to be. What is possibly the first conscious venture of mainstream media fusing with new media, the YOMYOMF (which stands for You Offend Me You Offend My Family) channel promo boasts an impressive collection of talents from both worlds, including NigaHiga, KevJumba, Chester See, and mainstream stars like Jessica Alba, Harry Shum Jr., Wayne Brady, and so many more.
The YOMYOMF Network, which was eight months in the making, will officially launch on June 12th with Internet Icon starring Ryan Higa and Chester See. Several other shows are also in the works so this seems to be the place to be for new ideas with faces that one wouldn’t normally see as leads in the conventional film world. To those wondering what this network exactly is…I say it’s the future that we’ve always wanted to see. With assured guidance from Justin Lin and many other talented folks, the line between new media and mainstream media has now been redefined once again. From the records shown last night of the amount of subscribers they got in less than ONE DAY, the legitimacy of this effort is pretty amazing.
I gotta say, this is truly an exciting time.
