‘LonelyGirl15’ Video Phenomenon Lands on Revver

Video-sharing Web site Revver said the creators of “LonelyGirl15,” the Internet teenage diary made famous on YouTube, have given her story a new home on Revver.com. Revver matches viral video with advertisers in its network.

Revver said the LonelyGirl15 clips, which debuted on YouTube a few months ago, are now “Revverized” on the new LonelyGirl15.com Web site and on Revver, giving the filmmakers behind the video an opportunity to generate some ad dollars. “They make money no matter where the “Revverized” version goes,” said a Revver spokesperson.

Late last week, several media outlets uncovered the secret identity of the Internet phenomenon known previously as “Bree,” aka “LonelyGirl.” She’s a 19-year old New Zealand actress. The series was created by two filmmakers who are reportedly using the videos to promote an upcoming film.

The LonelyGirl clips still appear on YouTube, but the ads have been stripped out, Revver said.
