Tribute to Lasse Gjertsen

The originator of this video editing beatmaking style is the legendary Youtube viral internet meme creator: Lasse Gjertsen

Lasse Gjertsen (born July 19, 1984) is a Norwegian animator, musician, and videographer known on YouTube as lassegg.[1] He is best known for his short pieces "Hyperactive" and "Amateur", which string together short clips of video to create a unique form of video akin to stop-motion animation. His "Hyperactive" video has over 10 million views.
