Watch Independent Lens “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey” at 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30 on Wisconsin Public Television.
What are the odds of being plucked from a YouTube video and thrown into stardom? Not very good. But every so often, someone with true talent is found mixed in with the millions of hours of video.
With a hundred hours of video being uploaded to YouTube every minute, it can be hard for anyone to get noticed. Most of the viral sensations find a niche in comedy or cuteness, rack up millions of views, enjoy their 15 minutes of fame and then fall by the wayside. Just imagine the surge of disbelief that would rush over you when a few videos posted online lead to a phone call and a job offer to be a rock star.
I guess it’s true what they say – with enough hard work and dedication, anything is possible. You just have to keep doing what you’re doing and of course, never stop believing.
