For some reason, teen girls in the UK have developed a sort of crush on him, creating the #Milifandom
(Unfortunately, he didn't win the election last week).
This is Jason Derulo, the pop and r&b star of hits like "Talk Dirty" and "Want To Want You".
About a year ago as a joke, Katie created a Facebook fan group dedicated to him. The group started as a joke between BuzzFeed staffers, but soon grew as real fans started joining, as well as real trolls.
Our guest is Eugene Ventimiglia from BuzzFeed's technical team, and co-admin of the site, who found that the Jason Derulo Fan Club gave him a real way to have fun on Facebook again.
Shoutout to hero Juan Franco for getting through *all fifty-seven minutes* of Jason Derulo saying his own name.
We challenge any of you to take the 57 Minutes of Jason Derulo Challenge.
Or if you prefer, here's a new single and video from Tanlines, who do the Internet Explorer podcast theme song:
This week we also spoke to Fiona Longmuir (on the right), who helped organize a protest against a sexist advertising campaign in the London tube.
People from all over London began sharing photos of the ad.
It was like a whole thing.
Also thanks to the High and Mighty Brass Band for their magical cover of "Wiggle."
