Open question for YouTube contributors

I’ve seen a lot of videos of guitarists and bassists on YouTube, and I really only have one question: Why would you bother to dress up, videotape yourself, and upload it if you’re not interested in actually performing?

Compare that with this. At least he’s into playing the song; no costume, but definite energy and a love for what he’s doing, without being a cheesemaster. The other guy (and many like him) is suddenly ashamed to be on camera…after willingly putting himself in front of it.

How can you crave attention and try to avoid it at the same time? Better still…why?
