You may have passed Sarah Allen in the street and not given her a glance. She is your average teenager with an infectious smile. But that wasn’t why I asked her to come into the studio for an interview. She had 56 million hits on her youtube video – Girl with a Funny Talent.
Some time ago a video of mine had jumped ten thousand youtube hits in a week and I was quite excited. It is called – Secrets to Hanging the Wash Correctly. The local paper did a story and I was quite beside myself.
Until I met Sarah and was quickly brought back to earth. I held my head in shame at only have 55k hits to her 55 Million.
How 36 Seconds made Sarah Allen a Worldwide Star
Young Sarah Allen had seen a television commercial where a girl moved her eyebrows in a strange way. That commercial has special effects to make it work. But Sarah practiced in the mirror until she mastered the art. A friend did a video and put it up on his account. It was shot in a local library and went for 36 seconds. Just a fun thing. Then it started climbing. And climbing.
Sarah says the music in the background (copyright) prevents them from making money. Here is the radio interview with Sarah.
