IJustine on G4TV

IJustine is another Internet Celebrity that I have recently found. Her videos are sometimes funny sometimes serious, but always entertaining.

This is from her Wikipedia page:

"Justine Ezarik (pronounced [iːˈzeɪ.ɹɪk], born March 20, 1984), is a viral video comedienne, freelance graphic/web designer and video editor originally based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is best known as iJustine, a lifecaster who communicated directly with her hundreds of viewers on her channel,[1][2] She has made more than 200 videos, including satires on such subjects as Lost and parkour.[3] Her videos have received more than 25 million views, 16 million on YouTube alone.[4] Her popularity is such that a video about her wanting to order a cheeseburger got 600,000 YouTube views in a week.[5] She is sometimes described as a "lifecasting star,"[6] a "new media star,"[7] or one of the web's most popular lifecasters.[8] In 2008, she relocated her base of operation from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, California.[5]

Ezarik is famous for her "300-page iPhone bill", which followed the first month of service after the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. The viral video earned her international attention and celebrity.[9] The bad publicity that AT&T earned as a result of her video featuring her reviewing this bill and similar stories coincided with the announcement that detailed billing would become optional for iPhone users."
