Back then, YouTube was only a simple platform for videos. But people loved YouTube, causing it to become the largest video-sharing platform in the world. It has billions of active users every month and millions of hours of videos uploaded y users every day. Needless to say, there is no end to YouTube’s popularity.
But now that the video-sharing giant has taken another step to a whole new endeavor, it is for people to witness whether or not it will succeed.
“Bad Guy,” a chart-topping Billie Eilish hit, just achieved buying one billion views on YouTube. This is her first music video that received such a monumental milestone. The song was released in 2019. For this reason, thousands of Billie Eilish fans from across the world have already uploaded their versions of the music on YouTube.
The fan covers of the song span almost every language, genre, and country. People who covered Bad Guy range from amateur to professional and from ridiculous to sublime. But one thing is for sure. These song covers reveal the breadth and diversity of the creator community on YouTube. In addition, it shines a light on the passionate fans of Billie Eilish.
So, to celebrate the billion views milestone of Bad Guy, as well as its title as one of the most covered songs on YouTube, the video-sharing giant and Google Creative Lab built “Infinite Bad Guy,” an infinite music video.
The aforementioned project is a unique AI experiment that uses machine learning in bringing thousands of covers together. This AI technology aligns covers seamlessly in endless combinations. As a result, the final output is a different music video every time a viewer watches it.
Infinite Bad Guy brings music fans and content creators from all over the world together. This move celebrates the impact and global reach of music on the video-sharing platform. From Japanese rubber chickens to French autoharpists, each of the 15,000 song covers of Bad Guy could not be more different. With an estimated 10.5 million seconds and still counting fan love for Billie Eilish, every play of the Infinite Bad Guy makes a never-before-seen combination of song covers performed by her talented fans from around the globe. Notably, the variety of videos can never be seen again after a viewer has already watched it.
Mathematically speaking, those combinations of videos means 1.46 x 10^100 years of videos. So basically, no one would see the exact sequence twice, from now until the end of the universe.
To create this endless music video experience, Google Creative Lab had to align the audio from the thousands of song covers with different instruments, styles, and keys perfectly. Conventional algorithms could not do this job alone. For this reason, Google Creative Lab chose to utilize machine learning. For videos that differ from the original song, such as Cappella and acoustic versions, the creators built a neural network to predict matches between covers and the original track. Using this data, Google Creative Lab was able to line up all kinds of different song covers and switch seamlessly between each of them.
Additionally, the creators used the Google Knowledge Graph to navigate through all of these covers and find patterns. It helped them identify the various musical styles, props, instruments, and other things that make up the critical moments of each video. This lets fans explore covers that look or sound alike or sample a little bit of everything.
With all of these elements, they were able to bring Infinite Bad Guy to life.
Fans will have the chance to play Infinite Bad Guy by going to billie.withyoutube.com. It begins with Billie Eilish’s original music video. After a couple of seconds, you can use listeners can now start exploring covers. There is also a place where scrolling hashtags show up. You can use these scrolling hashtags to discover various instruments, genres, and more. Alternatively, you can hit the autoplay button, sit and relax, and immerse yourself through a journey through randomly selected and inspiring covers.
In addition, you can hit pause, and you will see all the videos you have watched and get data about your unique viewing experience. You can also click through any creator’s YouTube channel and hit the subscribe button to support them. Now, without skipping any beat, the song will begin all over again with another never-before-seen mix of videos.
Needless to say, the idea and the way that Infinite Bad Guy was brought to life is something out of this world. It shows how brilliant the minds of the people behind Google Creative Lab are. In addition, it also shows that YouTube values the talent of the content creators thriving on the platform. With that being said, Infinite Bad Guy is indeed a celebration not only of Billie Eilish and Bad Guy’s one billion view milestone. Instead, it is also an appreciation to her fans who use YouTube to show Billie their support.
