Lindsay Lohan’s Nose Dive

July 30, 2007 12:37 PM

What do you do when a Lindsay Lohan film opens in 9th place with $3.4 million?

If you’re an emerging online video site, you make a spoof. That’s what iKlipz, a video site dedicated to independent filmmaking, did last Wednesday when it posted this spoof of Ms. Lohan’s tanker, “I Know Who Killed My Career.”

The video is a take-off on Ms. Lohan’s “I Know Who Killed Me” flick that opened on Friday with a whimper, just a few days after Ms. Lohan was arrested last week.

The video quickly gained steam and has now garnered 363,000 views on the site, the second-most popular video in iKlipz’ history after the trailer for “Spider-Man 3.” IKlipz says it plans to create more original videos and trailer spoofs.
