About

Gun Sounds is a Music/Machinima fad in which video makers take the sounds from guns in popular videogames and mix them into songs.

Origin

The origin of this fad was created on February 22, 2006 by Stealth Beast on flash website Newgrounds.

The video recreated the song The Counter-Strike Instrumental by DJ B.a.r. (a song published in 2002) in a Flash Video of Counter-Strike using stick figures.

This video, although not a Machinima in itself, became the first example of the fad, a fad which gained significant popularity on Youtube.

Spread

The first example of this fad appeared on Youtube on September 8, 2006, as a machinima with the song previously used on the Newgrounds video.

Rise in Youtube Popularity

Although a popular video on Newgrounds, it wouldn’t gain massive popularity on Youtube until February 25, 2007, when Zachariah, one of animators of Lit Fuse Films, created a video in the style of iPod commercials.

This video’s popularity, combined with that of Machinimator Serpento99’s Gun Sounds videos, helped launch the fad into popularity, with each getting millions of views on Youtube.

This wasn’t Serpento’s largest video, however. That was Call of Duty 4: Gun Sounds, a video that was featured on Machinima.com, CollegeHumor and many other sites such as Digg.

The video eventually racked up more than 9 million views.
