TikTok은 새로운 종류의 유명인을 기절합니다: 선거 분석가

(CNN 사업)Have you really ever made it until there’s a fancam?

Fancam videos — which splice together footage of someone the TikTok community is fawning over — are considered to be the sincerest form of admiration. Think 아리아나 그란데, Kristen Stewart Kim Jong-in of popular K-pop group Exo.
잘, 이번 주, users found a new subject to fixate on: 선거 분석가.
As the election drags on and Americans are glued to their TVs following every twist and turn, journalists like CNN’s John King and MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki — who are helping helping us make sense of the electoral college drama — are enjoying the adulation normally reserved for K-pop stars.
    TikTok users are uploading videos of the two on-air personalities, complete with upbeat, catchy songs as the backdrop.
    하나, a montage of photos of Kornacki is played to “내 아기가 되어주세요” by The Ronettes. 에 다른, the camera zooms in on King in front of the electoral college map. “I guess I’m just a play date to you,” Melanie Martinez croons in the background.
    A simple search on TikTok highlights just how popular these famcams have become.
    The hashtag #johnking has 2.5 백만 조회수; #stevekornacki has 81,600 견해; and #election2020 — which of course encompasses more than just election analyst-related videos — has 1.1 10 억 조회. (TikTok did not immediately respond to a CNN Business request for comment.)
    These fancams are a way for users to redirect their anxiety,” said Ioana Literat, an assistant professor at Teacher’s College, Columbia University. She researches youth, political expression and social media.
    This stanning, even sexualizing, is so much more lightheartened than just doom scrolling,” she told CNN Business.

    Fun + respect = fancam

    By Thursday afternoon, Emma Kraft had been watching King’s recap of the presidential race with her friends for hours.
    I’m just very impressed with him,” Kraft, a political science major at Mercer University in metro Atlanta, told CNN Business. “I think he’s a very respectable figure.
    Kraft used screenshots and screen recorded footage of King, as well as thegreen screenfeature on TikTok, to create her fancam. She set it to the tune of Nicki Minaj’sPound the Alarm— a popular choice.
    I’m not surprised at all that other people are making fancams for him,” Kraft said. “I don’t think what we’re doing is having a direct impact, but it’s a way to have fun with the election.
    Maya Beydoun, 17, is among those who made a fancam video of Kornacki.

    Maya Beydoun is 17, too young to vote. But she still wanted to show her appreciation for Kornacki.
    I remember just watching and thinking ‘I’m going to make an edit,'” she told CNN Business. “He’s just been working so hard. He deserves it.
    Beydoun, who is a frequent fancam maker of popular K-pop group, 다음은 일부 상위 아티스트 카테고리의 결선 진출자 및 수상자 목록입니다., spent an hour compiling footage of Kornacki, and set it to Zack Knight and Jasmine Walia’sDum Dee Dum.

    They’re not the typical cable news consumers

    TikTok users — who tend to skew younger in age — aren’t the typical cable news consumers.
    Literat likens these fancams to attention that Dr. 안토니 포시, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, has also received from Gen Z and millennials on social media.
    There’s a respect for knowledge and working towards social good,” Literat said. “Young people are looking at these individuals as symbols of hope.
    또한, fancams for election analysts follow a larger trend of TikTok users engaging in politics.
    Earlier in the election cycle, TikTokers used the platform to show their candidate preference. They roasted Mayor Pete Buttigiegnow-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
    A group of TikTokers tried to troll President Donald Trump’s campaign by reserving tickets for his Tulsa rally in June that they didn’t plan on using.
    TikTok is seen as their turf, it’s their public sphere,” Literat said. “But these practices precede TikTok. This is a way that (Gen Z and millennials) feel connected to their peers, and it’s shaping how the political discourse is happening. These practices are going to continue.
    Realizing that, groups on the political left and right, as well as nonpartisan civic organizations, put money behind TikTok creators to turn out the youth vote.
    Influencers have become their own political pundits, helping shape how the next generation participates in democracy. Some have formed their own party-based coalitions or hype houses.

    It’s not just TikTok; fancams are everywhere

    The fancam trend isn’t exclusive to TikTok.
    Sara Linthicum made a fancam video of John King.

    Sara Linthicum, who posted a fancam of John King to Twitter, said that she sees fancams all the time on the site. Her video stitched together clips of King from CNN and YouTube to Minaj’sGood Form.
    “[My family and I] were all just sitting there, waiting for the results and just watching him with the map,” she told CNN Business. “Making the fancam was just a really good distraction from anxiously waiting for more results.

    The analysts are digging it

    So what do the election analysts think of these fancams?
    MSNBC didn’t immediately respond to a CNN Business request for a comment. But the network posted a video on 트위터 and TikTok of Kornacki — away from the map — in which he thanked his fans.
    You may not recognize me, there’s no giant touch screen behind me,” he says in the video. “I just wanted to say, I saw after I finally left the studio all these incredibly kind and friendly and nice messages everybody had on social media.
    As for King, he said he is grateful for the compliments. He’s been responding to fans on Twitter (including to one user who shared her fancam video).
    I have a 9 year old son who is a TikTok fan and user, and so having famcams is an honor gives me a little credibility now with my son,” 왕이 말했다.
    But more importantly, it is proof people are engaged in the election and looking for ways to connect to the story.
      He also thanked his new fans and left them with a message.
      My message to any new ‘fansis to channel that interest and energy into the issues they care about — beginning in your local community. “
