Move over, One Direction, because YouTube supergroup O2L is now in the running to steal the title of “Favorite Teen Heartthrobs.” Known for their channel Our2ndLife, the vlogging supergroup have proven that a group of six teenage boys musing about humorous parts of their day are the key to a 14-year-old’s heart.
They’ve proven themselves as such a phenomenon that the next step in super stardom is being taken. A documentary is currently being filmed about their 20-city US tour, a la Katy Perry’s “Part of Me” or Justin Bieber’s “Believe.” The documentary has been filmed from the conception and rehearsal of their stage show, and will end with the last stop on their tour at Vidcon 2014.
The man with the plan is director Michael Goldine, the guy responsible for the “Camp Takota” movie, which starred Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart and Hannah Hart. Since he’s had experience in the YouTuberverse, he understands the YouTube celebrity culture that’s formed in the last few years. He told Mashable: “This movie is not just for the fans. It’s bigger than that. People who are trying to understand what’s going on with YouTubers, and all these kids connecting with this new form of entertainment, it’s for them, too.”
The multi-channel network Fullscreen is producing the film and will handle its release. Audiences can expect to see behind-the-scenes of the super group’s show antics, from their comedy bits to their endearing musical tunes.
There’s two things we know for sure: numero uno, the herd of girls that flocked to O2L’s tour will definitely see their documentary, and numero dos, YouTubers have become this generation’s teen heartthrobs.
