Millennials grew up watching pop culture on MTV, saw the widespread distribution of webcams and reality TV, and now live in a world where Skype, FaceTime, and Snapchat are all normal. Finally, we’ve innovated the interview to reflect this multi-year digital transformation. Josh Weidling created the Digital Bus Tour: a blog, news content, and video site. With a fan base of over 45,000 on YouTube and over 120,000 on Twitter, Digital Tour Bus mixes Skype and blog to take fans face-to-digital-face with touring musicians. The interviews are comedic, unusual, sarcastic, and most of all, real. Influenced by shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and South Park, Weidling came up with the idea in college, and it has been growing ever since. The site is best known for a video series, Bus Invaders, but with others including Cooking at 65 mph, Tour Pranks, and Tour Tips, you can see it’s not your normal sit-down interview. Digital Tour Bus combines knowledge with presence, connects fans to artists, and does it in an original way that we haven’t seen before.
