Still have unchecked items on that holiday shopping list? A thirtysomething Filipino-American comedian and the internet’s largest video-sharing site are here to help.
Christine Gambito (aka Happy Slip, aka one YouTube’s earliest and most popular personalities known for expertly imitating her family’s accents and inability to operate anything technological) released a video earlier this month introducing YouTube’s Holiday Gift Guide.
It’s a dynamic YouTube page presented by Samsung, EA, Logitech, Nintendo, Western Digital, and Call of Duty: Black Ops with 110 videos highlighting the perfect presents from 22 of YouTube’s participating advertisers, including: Activision, AT&T, Beachbody, Bose, Carhatt, Duracell, Dynomighty, Fitness Anywhere, Fox, French Connection, GoVacuum, Konami, Lego, Namco Bandai, Nikon, REI, and Sega.
YouTube bills the Gift Guide as “your shoppable video catalog.” They’re not too far off. The act of monitor shopping, clicking from one video to the next, and bookmarking your Want List is not terribly unlike the experience of going through the Toys “R” Us Great Big Christmas Book, folding pages, and circling awesome things you can’t wait to unwrap attack.
