Kids are stupid and they like stupid shit, that's all there is to understand.
Even as a 5 year old, the chipmunk voices got old for me.
Right?? I never "got" the appeal of the Chipmunks even as a very little kid.
I think you're overthinking what they're doing with those videos. That kid was the #1 attraction on Youtube for 2009, the likes of Freddy Got Fingered and Tim and Eric can only DREAM of those numbers, any single video of his his gets more views than those two combined and multiplied by one hundred. I'm not making a judgement call either way, I'm saying it's insane and a little sad. (So I guess I AM making some kind of judgement).
