We have now migrated this new generation of arts entertainment content that's on the web right over to Bravo in a filtered, fun, pop cultural 'Bravo' way," said Zalaznick. "These viral videos are sometimes funny, sometimes strange, but all somehow represent the eclectic, collective experience of the current state of entertainment these days.
