LonelyGirl15 is back! One of YouTube’s first stars, AND first controversies, resurfaced on June 16 when a video was posted to the account for the first time in seven years. You have to see this! Check out her crazy return here!
On June 16, a new video was suspiciously posted to the LonelyGirl15 YouTube account. Yes, THAT account. An account that hasn’t seen a new video in over seven years! It happened to be the 10 year anniversary of the first day LonelyGirl15 or “Bree” posted a video to YouTube and this new one promises that things are about to get weird(er). Watch the return of LonelyGirl15 here!
Not everyone remembers LonelyGirl15 but it was pretty big WAY back in 2006. It was a vlog, which followed the life of a 16-year-old girl named Bree. Bree talked about being homeschooled, made her stuffed animals dance for us, made funny faces at the camera and GUSHED over her friend Daniel. Bree was eventually chosen for some sort of ceremony, her parents went missing and she and Daniel went on the run. Then, it turned out the whole account was a hoax, but a LOT of people stuck with the “show,” even after the mystery was revealed. Now, Bree is back and we are dying to know where she has been all this time!
In this new video, a computer screen appears where we can see someone (possibly Bree?) typing mysterious code. Next we see a screen titled “What to do if you’re selected?” – a callback to the “ceremony” Bree was supposedly involved in. Next, a very glitchy looking image of a grown up Bree in a grey shirt appears.
“Being selected can be a very frightening thing,” our hero says. “And it’s okay to be afraid. When I was selected I was terrified. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go through with the ceremony. And my friends thought something would happen to me. Nothing happened to me. Everything was fine. I went through with the ceremony and it was an honor, a privilege. I’m living proof of that. And now that you’ve reached your 15th birthday you too will undergo selection,” Bree says calmly.
She continued, “Being chosen by your loved ones and your elders is one of the most amazing experiences of your life. There is nothing to fear. A part of you and your ancestors must heal this world and the order is here to help guide. My story was a simple one: girl gets selected, girl gets scared, girl gets lost and then returns home and does what she was always meant to do. Your friends want what’s best for you but they won’t understand if they aren’t a part of us. You must keep this information secret from them, or you can hurt your standing. The blood must heal, the blood must protect, the blood must flow. Now open to page 15 of your ceremony selection handbook.” The screen then cuts back to the code page and someone types “Get ready.” Oh we will!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think we will see with the return of LonelyGirl15?
