Video Virus: The Apple Store’s Lip-Synching YouTube Sensation Nicholi White

Nicholi White has become a YouTube sensation with lip-synched videos filmed at Manhattan’s midtown Apple store.

The adorable and resourceful 13 year-old made use of the Apple store’s display computers and web cameras to create over 70 videos.

Wearing Kanye West inspired shades and ignoring onlookers, White lip-syncs and dances in the midst of shoppers to a variety of hit songs from Black Eye Peas, Kid Cudi, and Lil’ Wayne, to name a few.

And if you thought White just lip-syncs, watch the clips where he says “stop calling me an asshole,” and another clip where he points out a guy in the store who harassed him.

YouTube Fights For Your Right To Broadcast

Earlier this month, a judge ordered Google to turn over user data for YouTube as part of a $1 billion copyright infringement lawsuit by Viacom and a class-action group led by the Football Association of England.

Viacom and the other parties of the lawsuit agreed to accept a stripped down version of the logs–with user names and computer Internet protocol addresses removed–after YouTube and privacy advocate groups balked at the request.
