Shaking It Up My Way: Amateur Appropriation of Popular Media

This study examines consumers’ appropriation of popular media through the creation of user-generated content (UGC). We study UGC of Gangnam Style and Harlem Shake, including video and comment reactions, to explore sociocultural implications of this phenomenon. This is accompanied by a typology of UGC purposes, and their message transmission approaches.
