The hot youth group trend: Nooma parodies
One indication that Rob Bell's Nooma videos are extremely popular and influential? Check out all of the spoofs on YouTube. Most are overly long, no one has quite nailed their Bell impersonation, and few are able to parody both the style and substance of the videos. But it's significant that there are so many, and that several come from outside the U.S. You won't find parodies of Rick Warren, John Piper, or Billy Graham, but Bell has more than a dozen.
