MysteryGuitarMan creates awesome stop motion video with the Nokia Lumia 1020

MysteryGuitarMan Lumia 1020

YouTube launched back in early 2005 as a video-sharing website. A lot has happened since then. The company was acquired by Google in 2006 and since then it has only exploded in popularity with new features and redesigns. As of March 2013, over 1 billion unique visitors use YouTube monthly. Which is a shame with all the recent controversy surrounding an official app on Windows Phone.

One way or the other, it’s still a great platform for people to create fun videos and amass followers. MysteryGuitarMan, aka Joe Penna, has done that with his 2.7 million subscribers and 329 million views. He’s just released a fun stop motion video featuring the Nokia Lumia 1020.

While the focus is clearly the Facebook app, which was just updated yesterday, it’s still a solid video and it’s hard to ignore the yellow Lumia 1020. Plus it’s pretty damn creative and was filmed with a Lumia 1020. A Lumia 1020 filming another Lumia 1020, that counts as some sort of Lumiaception right?

And he probably got it for free. Good to see it being used even if they might have paid him to do it.

Hey peeps... MysteryGuitarMan here.
Thanks for blogging about my video!
I'm loving the 1020... no need for me to carry around a DSLR anymore.

Hey MGM, been a subscriber for.... I don't even know how long, but thanks for showing Nokia some <3, btw your vids are amazing
love (no homo),

Hey MysteryGuitarMan! great video and music. Very creative and original, love it. gonna promote it amongst my friends. keep up the good work.


I´ve followed you since that "first" guitarr video! Your stop motion videos are just amazing! :D

Great work man, also a subscriber here. What band/song is that? I saw you ran out of downloads, but I need that song lol

Nizzon's mind couldn't handle it lol. Great Vid, Stitching those images must have taken a looong time, daamn.

Well, it's a sponsored video.
But still, it was high time Nokia and Microsoft (through AT&T here) started giving devices to these YouTubers. I think there are a lot of iPhones sold because of them (4 in 5 of the top YouTubers use iPhone...the others use Android) so puting Nokias in their hands would be a nice way to make that stop.

I honestly would really like them to send one to iJustine...and if you want to know why, just see the name again. I think you'll get it. And since she's a fan of Xbox anyway...

Actually the number one Youtuber, Pewdiepie, uses a Lumia 820. And he's grown up in my hometown, Gothenburg, Sweden! :-)

I know Joe. He used to live in my building. Cool, talented guy. Those top YouTube guys do get stuff sent them, but he doesn't have to use anything he hates. He's got enough going in. Those guys probably LOVE having a high quality device in such a small package. They usually use DSLRs.

You can't watch this video on the official YouTube app on your 1020. Inverted inception! (inverception?)

Kinda a fail that you can see the three little dots in the right bottom (so he's using the Photo hub)

who cares if sponsored, that's some serious Lumia promotion right there... Put this on TV and watch the sales skyrocket!
