Andy Worhol said’ “in the future everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes. You can’t choose the 15 minutes but why would you be world famous?”

Nowadays it is possible for nearly anyone to get 15 minutes of fame. With internet sites such as YouTube anyone can get famous for nearly anything regardless of how ridiculous it is. You won’t even have to think that hard to come up with the name of someone made famous by YouTube. The most famous example of all has to be Justin Bieber. Before he was worldwide famous and had hundreds of thousands of girls, young and old admiring him, he was just a young kid who was videoed playing the guitar while singing. While it wasn’t long before that simple video caught the attention of the right people and just like that an average kid became a big well known somebody, all thanks to YouTube.

YouTube has also managed to make the most bizarre things hits such as a little dwarf guy (if I can call him that) who simply sings along to well known pop songs by artists such as Katy Perry, 50 cent and Rihanna. Sound ridiculous? Well it is but this guy gets over 500 000 hits on YouTube just for doing this. Now is that 15 minutes of fame or what?!

So I guess the best way to achieve fame or at least 15 minutes of it would be to come up with something interesting enough that will grab people’s attention and then post it on YouTube and wait for the world to discover you.
