Over 6000 years of video are uploaded to youtube per year. Sometimes, a brilliant labor of love in released into this hard world and the wind blows before it can hit everybody's radar. Lost & Found is a spotlight on some of these brilliant, fascinating, or wonderful videos that you may have not been lucky enough to catch the very day they were released.

To experience Yung Jake, follow the link to http://e.m-bed.de/d/, press ‘play’ and sit back. It’s almost too clever for it’s own good, just like Yung Jake himself.

Who is Yung Jake? As the lyrics to ‘embedded’ imply, he is a man who believes that a carefully constructed online persona is it’s own form of art. He has a twitter account that only tweets out in Russian, a tumblr full of trashy memes and badly photoshopped .gif’s of himself, and a youtube channel that is mostly videos of tasteless joke-rapping about how he is really in to underaged girls.

The most interesting aspect of Yung Jake is how cohesive his brand is spread horizontally across his entire online body. Not to mention just appreciating how much thought and time he has put into sculpting his weird, dumb digital-persona. Even if you don’t get lost for a half hour falling down through his meticulously curated click-hole. the 'embedded' experience is a fun little dose of clever that will at least make you smile.

More info on Yung Jake can be found all over http://e.m-bed.de/d/ as well as at yungjake.com.

Allen Price lives in NYC and when he isn't writing about music videos he is making them. His website is blacksundaysproductions.com.
