Three of YouTube's most popular creators are competing to see who can best turn a cool video idea into YouTube gold. Wong Fu Productions, DS2DIO's Jon M. Chu, and Freddie Wong are the YouTubers involved in Take Your Shot, a filmmaking competition hosted by Isa TV and At&T. The contest began in July when the three mentors each posted videos on their personal channels urging creators to submit their pitch ideas. The top 50 were collected on the contest's website, and until August 18th, fans can vote on their favorite ideas. After voting ends, the top 10 semifinalists will be announced, with the three winners revealed on August 26th.

Far East Movement, the hip hop group best known for its incredibly catchy 2010 smash hit, 'Like a G6', recently rolled out a new music video. However, unlike most artists signed to a major label (Interscope, in their case), the group did not choose to distribute its work via Vevo. Instead, Far East Movement has dropped 'The Illest' on Maker Music, and a bunch of Maker Studios creators show up in brief cameos. 'The Illest' features the members of Far East Movement getting down in an office, where they are later joined by the office's employees and some other special guests. Unpredictable rapper Riff Raff drops a verse in the song, and the list of Maker creators who make cameos includes Nice Peter, Watsky, Rawn, Steve Greene, and Jeffree Star, among many, many others. Before you watch it, be warned: this video is very ill. Don't watch too closely, lest »

Misheard song lyrics are the stuff of legend, with Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" being a canonical example of what happens when inflection doesn't go as planned (no, it's not "hold me closer, Tony Danza"). Spotify tried to lend a touch of science to our collective inability to hear certain lines as musicians intended them, and conducted a poll to identify the most misquoted song lyrics of all time.
Coming in at No. 1 on the list is Manfred Mann's Earth Band, who's "Blinded By the Light" is often mistaken as including the line "wrapped up like a douche when you're rollin' in the night." The actual line? "Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night."
Take a look at the Spotify's Top 10 Misquoted Song Lyrics below and stream a playlist of the mistakenly catchy tracks. What lyrics do you struggle with the most?

The second quarter features a game of "Pass It On", where the contestants must act out a given phrase charades-style. Suffice to say, it does not go so well. Parts three and four will be released shortly. »

"But I have to tell you that my very favorite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you." She paid tribute to the sacrifices that military families make, including their kids.
Pointing out that such kids often attend six to nine schools by the end of high school, always having to be "the new kid," she said being a military kid meant "growing up just a little faster, and working just a little harder than other kids. »
