Megan Boyle & Tao Lin – Bebe Zeva (2011)

“Tao Lin and Megan Boyle follow 17-year-old fashion blogger Bebe Zeva around Las Vegas for a night and film it on a MacBook.”
“In the film, which took one night to film and 24 hours to edit, Tao Lin and Megan Boyle follow Zeva around her home city of Las Vegas. Zeva plays the part of compliant diva, welcoming them into her lavish condo then taking them through casinos, malls and Planet Hollywood as she’s filmed by Lin and Boyle with a MacBook while they ask her questions like, “How many Twitter followers does the toilet have?” “Would you rather weigh 500 pounds or not have two arms?” “Who has the best internet nose?” Sometimes you can’t hear what they’re saying. Sometimes there are jarring sounds as if the MacBook hit a wall accidentally. And sometimes Lin and Boyle say things to each other out of Zeva’s earshot like, “let the silence go on and she’ll say something revealing….. Lin and Boyle seem less interested in traditional filmmaking than they do in capturing the kind of whimsical, low-stakes solipsism and staged hyper-self-awareness found on YouTube. “

if you don’t know who tao lin is you might hate this movie!!!
