The pattern seems to be creating a 5-10 second video with a still image (usually of Justin Bieber or the Jonas Brothers or whomever), then adding a short novella (the kind of stuff goths used to post to LiveJournal) to the description section ... My question: Is this a "thing" with the tween crowd nowadays? Should there be an entry about this under knowyourmeme.com? Is there some kind of precedent for this type of behavior?
Sorry, I'm just curious what the origins of this type of "video fan fiction" is, but I've encountered it enough times to rule out it being an isolated in-joke amongst a small number of YouTube users ...

I think it's an "easy" way to anonymously/cheaply post fan fiction and get attention/subscribers. Because starting a blog and/or getting a fanfiction.net account isn't easy enough, or easy enough for the intended audience to find.
Maybe. I'm just guessing. I couldn't tell ya, because I'm not a kid. I'm a MAN, and I administer a MANLY WEB SERVER.
