How Everything Started
Two young women, boredom, and a camera.
(The following was written by Lynne herself and is published with her Permission. It first appeared in June, 2006, on Lynne and Tessa's homepage, and represents their status at that time. Many things have changed in the interim. For example, both girls are now a year older, and Google Idol has changed its name to Bopsta.)
You've, probably, already seen the results of just such a situation...
Lynne, 20, and Tessa, 19, once swore that they too could be creative (spoon handles!) and began shooting senseless videos of themselves.
The whole thing began as we were cruising around Frankfurt in a dream- like state and had no idea what we should do with our newly acquired video camera and an empty weekend.
A summer night, the car windows turned down, the city skyline in view.
It just so happened that at this time the radio was piping out Weezer's "Island in the Sun" and we had the car windows down and, as usual, were being too loud and extrovert as we bopped along to the song. A few years earlier we would have only dared to do this behind closed doors, but now the action in the car inevitably lead us out into the public. So it happened that passersby began to laugh and we thought that we could "sing our songs onto video and put them on the net with Google."
So, before we knew it, we could be seen on the net. Something that left us a feeling a little cold at first.
In fact, the main source of our chill was the 'cold feet' - as the cliché has it - that we began to feel when we thought of how Google's world-wide internet public might respond to us. Thus, we were very pleased and surprised when we found ourselves shooting up into the Top Ten of the said site (just to say it again: video.google.com).
Thereafter, only a little persuasiveness was necessary to convince Lynne that Google Idol was the right place for our videos.
Google Idol - the site that unites creative and humorous people, as well as those with a knack for craziness, by letting the said persons step forward in competition against one other. The users vote for their favorite performers. We crossed the first hurdle thanks to our much appreciated video, "Barbie Girl," (Amen!) that gave us quite a jump on our competitors. At the moment, we are once again at the beginning with a video of Avril Lavigne's "Skater Boy". The appropriate link can be found in the section, "Video Gallery". We thank all those that have supported us up to this point and all those who, hopefully, will continue to support us into the future. We wish all the best to all our fans with the small hope that we can continue to bring a smile to your faces with our video magic.
