The Guild is one of the most popular original web series on the internet. It’s also amassing one helluva musical catalog.
The latest music video created by and starring Felicia Day and her motley crew of MMORPG-obsessed compatriots dropped this morning on Day’s shiny new Geek & Sundry YouTube channel (which is part of that $100 million YouTube Originals initiative). It’s called I’m the One that’s Cool. It’s a new nerd anthem that gives an indie rock voice to the zeitgeist’s opinion that geek is the new black and you couldn’t make Revenge of the Nerds in a 2012 American cultural environment because it wouldn’t be believable because all the Tri-Lambs would already be romantically involved with whatever Pi Delta Pis or Omega Mus they so desired. Jed Whedon also provided the music and direction. Here’s a look:
It’s the third music video release from Day and her Guild crew (that is, of course, if you don’t count A Christmas Raid Carol from back in 2007) . The first was the 2009 iTunes and Amazon chart-topping cosplay sensation Do You Want to Date My Avatar? and the second was the 20201 Katy Perry-topping, Bollywood-inspired Game On.
I’m the One that’s Cool also heralds the official launch of Geek & Sundry. Out of the half-dozen-or-so online originals seen on the channel’s programming slate, three launched today. Dark Horse Comics released the first installment of the The Secret, Wil Wheaton and friends play out a few rounds of the board game Small World in Table Top’s premiere, Dark Horse comics while Felicia Day fans get a look at what it’s like to be Felicia Day and make something out of (not an ingot, but a hefty piece of) iron at a real working forge in The Flog.
