YouTube celebrity's ode to Toronto goes viral

Scarborough-born YouTube celebrity IISuperwomanII (I'm 100% sure you're a celebrity once you have 5,542,692 subscribers) a.k.a. Lilly Singh released a new video on April 16th - 4.16 - that pays tribute to Toronto in a huge way, from the standard skyline shots, Yonge-Dundas Square appearances, and TTC-subway-car-party scenes to an on-court Toronto Raptors homage.

Singh and Toronto YouTube personality Humble the Poet's "#IVIVI" (416) is an ode to Toronto's diversity and includes shout-outs to Scarborough, North York and more. It amassed about 300k views in its first twelve hours online, making it one effective postcard.

Watch out, Drake?


IISuperwomanII will be part of the Canadian debut of YouTube FanFest May 2nd at Yonge-Dundas Square.
