In the age of internet celebrities, Brittani Louise Taylor is more than a triple threat. Regularly making your life a lot funnier thanks to her sketches, music video parodies and DIY tips, her three YouTube channels have a combined 1.5 million subscribers. Last year’s parody of the Miley Cyrus hit “We Can’t Stop” has amassed over five million views to date. But how does a video like that become an international sensation? VH1’s Kate Spencer sat down with Brittani to go behind the making of the mock video, and find out just how
easy difficult it is to mimic Miley’s tongue.
Despite using multiple costumes and locations in the spirit of Miley, the entire parody was shot in one day. Brittani did her homework, practicing her Cyrus-esque tongue movements as well as some epic twerking before getting behind the camera. But it wasn’t all easy. She’s gluten-free, so rolling around on top of four loaves of bread was a challenge, as was braving the gnarly smells of a french fry skull and making out with a plastic doll in front of her brother. (Don’t tell mom!) Find out just how much work goes into creating a popular internet moment in the video above. And don’t forget to follow Brittani on YouTube. She’s churning out hilarious takes on the most current music videos faster than you can begin to turn down (for “what” or otherwise).
