10. THERE’S NO “I” IN “TWERK TEAM”
WHEN: June 2009
On June 5, 2009, a then-anonymous collective called the Twerk Team —credited as “Betty Butt,Lady L,Mizz.twerksum,&LiN”— posted their first video to YouTube. Although the camera work is even shakier than The Blair Witch Project, this kicked off one of the most successful YouTube channels there is. As of this writing in August of 2013, Mizz Twerk.Sum and Lady Luscious (the two primary members of the Twerk Team) have racked up over 376,000 subscribers and 90MM views on their YouTube channel and earned legendary status in hip-hop circles.
