Overly Attached Girlfriend [OAG OAG] first featured in a YouTube video published by Laina on June 6, 2012 that was a submission to a contest held by Justin Bieber who challenged fans to create a Girlfriend counterpart to his hit song Boyfriend. The video, which satirized elements of the Bieber song that have been perceived as clingy, featured the woman staring at the camera with a fixed smile while singing about Facebook-stalking her boyfriend and other themes. Her username is still wzr0173 officially, but her display name now identifies her as Laina, most likely changed when she became a YouTube partner. The video was noticed by the social news website reddit and quickly became popular gaining more than 170,000 views the first day. Arising from the success of the video, 'OAG' became an Internet meme that features the image macro of a young woman featured in the video, smiling and staring manically at the camera that has been captioned in a way that portrays her to be a stalker, jealous, or committed to her love interest to an unhealthy degree. The image came from a still from the video was taken and made into an image macro which also became very popular and spread across many social media websites and was remixed in various ways. The subject (and creator) of the original video has continued to produce further videos, approximately once a week. While most feature the OAG persona, some are entirely 'in character', while others branch out from the OAG format, including charity fundraising and (trying to) interview celebrities on the red carpet at the AMAs. Exactly a year after the initial JB fanvideo, Laina had over 595,000 subscribers and 76,500,000 views on youtube. A week after, her subscriber count went up to 605,000 and the views rose to 77,400,000, with the initial JB fanvideo holding 15,600,000 of those views and her follow up video the CRJ fanvideo holding 18,600,000 views.
