Little Chubby Lin Yu Chun – The Newest Meme on Youtube!

Taiwan’s Susan Boyle: Chubby underdog blows judges away as he belts out Whitney Houston… and becomes YouTube hit” Read more here

After some time off from new, fresh and famous internet memes, a couple weeks ago, enter Justin Bieber, and now follows the chubby Taiwanese Lin Yu Chun. Therefore, one must ask: Is social media becoming the emerging star attraction magnet and lift off platform? I am inclined to say I believe so!

Lin Yu Chun’s performance, which is now being broadcasted heavily on Youtube, started off relatively modest and quiet, but when the young man broke out into the chorus, it became quite clear how talented the young man really was.

Please keep in mind that at this “Taiwan’s equivalent to American Idol”, Lin Yu Chun lives in Taiwan and English is not even his first language!

Watch here:

What do you think: Do you agree that maybe Youtube and Google are maybe pushing it when it comes to embracing and promoting emerging starts such as Lin Yu Chun? Or do you encourage the idea of motivating young talents through social media more aggressively?

Looking forward to your comment below :)
