MSCLVR Interview Series #047 w/ Bart Baker, King of the Music Video Parody!
This episode of the podcast is featuring Bart Baker – international man of mystery but more commonly known as the King of the the music video parody on YouTube. In this interview from Bart’s kitchen we talk about some of the trials the professional YouTuber community has been going through over the past year and his strategies for success despite the Google platform’s struggle to balance advertiser and Creator interests.
Ok so I almost want you to run through this as quickly as possible so that you can go straight to the content – I mean I laughed so hard before, during, and after this interview so I hope you will enjoy it as much we had fun recording it!
I think Bart has a really unique talent for pushing the line of outrageous, irreverent comedy while still somehow wrapping it into smart and, dare I say, high brow and witty comedy through both original satirical lyrics and high production value videos that amplify and poke fun at today’s popular music celebrities.
He’s got a penchant for shock value and a talent for embodying hyperbolic personas – combine that with entertaining music and YouTube and you’ve got a recipe for a channel with nearly 10 million subscribers and videos reaching astronomical views in the 10s of millions.
But it’s not all carbonated water and soy sauce for Bart and countless other YouTubers (that’ll make more sense later I promise) – after YouTube’s “adpocalypse” of 2017 guys like Bart saw his contents’ adsense monetization take a serious hit…
Nevertheless the King of Parody persists and has some really unexpected ventures diversifying his career portfolio and I think Musicians, Artists, and Creators of all stripes can benefit from Bart’s attitude and versatile thought process…
So without further ado…Bart Baker!
