Venue: Madison Square Garden Theater near Penn Station, the second straight year for Google's annual YouTube Brandcast. As 2,400-plus people filed in, an enormous backdrop showed computer-generated artwork of various YouTube personalities surrounded by fans. In fact, the "fan" theme started 90 minutes before MSG opened its doors, thanks to a special "Fan Fair" at Moynihan Station's Skyline space. With an orange carpet outside, fans were invited to see and play games with some of their YouTube faves. A number of fans went to MSG and sat in the first three rows. Everyone could take flavored popcorn and pretzels to their seats. Grade: 4.5 Jacks
