Hey! Welcome to Barely Digital and Barely Political
BarelyPolitical.com launched in June, 2007 with the video “I Got a Crush on Obama”. And did 200 political satire videos. Then in January 2009 we launched BarelyDigital.com and that’s where we do tech satire.
Here’s what people have said about our video networks…
“Many people – including this blogger – would argue the sitcom is a dying form and this kind of web video will replace it.” – FastCompany.com
“It’s just one more example of the fertile imagination of the Internet. More stuff like this will be popping up all the time.” – President Barack Obama, commenting on Obama Girl in July 2007
“BarelyPolitical continues in its work as the best new-media satire operation around.” – Professor Paul Levinson, Infinite Regress
“BarelyPolitical – they built a team where all the players bring it to the table. ” – The Huffington Post
“You guys are the hottest thing on the internet.” – Fox News
“You’re becoming the voice of a generation.” ABC, Good Morning America
“You gotta love their DIY 2.0 Spirit.” Phil DeVellis, creator of Hillary 1984
“Who’s Hot? Judging by nearly 3 million viewers the answer is Obama Girl.” – People Magazine
“The 2008 presidential campaign has become an online popularity contest led by civic journalists on sites like Barelypolitcal.com, with its politically-charged music video parodies” – The Boston Herald
“In the past four months, their “Obama Girl” video has been viewed 4 million times on YouTube… starring Amber Lee Ettinger…who single-handedly may solve all our worries about voter apathy.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
“(Obama) is definitely crushworthy. More power to the people who think he’s cute.” – Michelle Obama
“The new face of US Politics” – The UK Times
“We like what BarelyPolitical is doing.” – AdRants
“Leah Kauffman. One of 76 Philadelphians who will shape and change our lives over the next decade.” – Philadelphia Magazine
“Totally. Undeniably. Awesome.” TechPresident
“We thought the song of the summer was Rihanna’s inspired and inescapable “Um-brel-la, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh …” Boy were we wrong. It seems that “I Got a Crush … on Obama,” a music video by “barelypolitical,” a.k.a. Obama Girl, should easily take the cake.” – The Washington Post
“That video probably had more to do with shaping Obama’s complicated public image — young and exciting but maybe a bit shallow — than any Internet appeal devised by the candidate’s own aides.” – The New York Times
