Videodrone: Disco Revivalist Inexplicably Ruling YouTube

We’re trying to figure out the appeal of Bo Benton’s “Bounce,” which is the No. 1 music video on YouTube as of this writing. “Bounce” is a sub-Donna Summer piece of fluff that’s catchy enough, although its hook bites off “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” to the point that we had a nightmarish vision of Rod Stewart’s crotch while the song played. What we’re trying to figure out is exactly how “Bounce” lapped Diddy on its way to the top of the YouTube charts. Is the world ready to re-embrace disco? Does Benton have an army of teenagers clicking her video for two bucks an hour? Or is the appeal summed up by a YouTube commenter: “hot chicks on rollerskates in space, what more could one ask for?”
