MUSIC VIDEO AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE BEGINNING FEBRUARY 18, 2015
LOS ANGELES (February 18, 2015) – Actress PAULA LABAREDAS takes social media obsession to the extreme in “#SELFIE GIRL,” a new music video parody of the 90’s hit song ‘Barbie Girl’ by dance-pop group Aqua.
#SELFIE GIRL follows a dolled up fashionista and her obsession with becoming famous through posting selfie photos on social media networking services.
No stranger to social media herself, Labaredas created and stars in the parody which pokes fun at the ‘selfie’ culture that has exploded on the social media scene. She explains, “I wanted to shed light on the reality that a person can earn fame and fortune simply by sharing their Selfies.”
To help co-write the lyrics, Labaredas brought in stand-up comedian Allan Murray, known for his "Paris in Jail" parody music video which garnered 32 million hits online. #SELFIE GIRL shares:
I'm a selfie girl, in a selfie world
YouTube is the hood, the new Hollywood
Selfies are my Jam, I’m huge on Instagram
My life is peaking, ohh my nudes are leaking!
