Carpool Karaoke, #YouPeople and the Lion King shine this week
144 days ago
Another week, another top 3 coming at you from the Youtube trending list. The #947Crew bring you this week’s top 3, you’ll laugh, definitely get some goose bumps and be reminded why Nando’s is one of the leading brands when it comes to advertising.
First up is a video that didn’t just remain on Youtube, but snippets of it were brought onto the Twitter timeline too, because of how hilarious it was. James Corden, famous American show host, had Migos on his show for his popular carpool karaoke. Quavo, Offset and Takeoff (that make up the trio: Migos) are known for dripping cool and seem like the most laid back guys ever, so seeing them sing along to Whitney Houston’s ‘I wanna dance to somebody’ was more than entertaining. The interview itself is super funny and we find out who actually created the dance move: ‘the dab.’ It’s trending at number 27 and you won’t regret watching it.

Our second top 3 Youtube video for the week comes from everyone’s favourite flame-grilled chicken restaurant: Nando’s. They are the guys who not only serve South Africa delicious Portuguese chicken, but they also add their unique peri-peri flavour to the advertising industry in SA and keep it on its toes. We totally love it and they’ve done it again. Their brand new advert: ‘#YouPeople’ is trending at number 7 and it will truly remind you why the Nando’s marketing team is regarded as one of the best in the country by many. In the advert, they cover a wide range of stereotypes in SA and as always, they bring the humour to what may have be ‘offensive’ to some. Their humour comes through with how each and every person addressing a particular South African stereotype proceeds to make one as well, but you need to watch it to truly understand, so click on the link below and be entertained.
The video that came out and rocked the Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and record-breaking streets of the world is the trailer that is sitting the number 1 trending spot. The Lion King Official Teaser Trailer was released less than a week ago and within 24 hours, it broke the record as Disney’s most-watched trailer in 1 day of its release. It received a whopping 224.6 million views globally in 24 hours and it’s even more anticipated than before. We’d go as far as saying that it is the number one most anticipated movie of 2019 and the trailer makes you wish it was coming out tomorrow. It takes you back to the young you that watched Simba try wake up Mufasa and the goosebumps are inevitable when you see Rafiki raise Simba up for all the animals to bow down to the future king. We can’t to watch this film, that opens in theatres on 19 July 2019, where James Earl Jones (the original voice of Mufasa) teams up with some new additions to the Lion King family, such as Beyoncé Knowles (the voice of Nala) and Donald Glover (the voice of Simba). If you haven’t watched the trailer as yet, do the right thing with the link below.
