Friday Flick Find: HotForWords @ Yoga Time!

Today I’d like to introduce you to 28 year old Marina Orlova – also known as HotForWords.

Marina is one of those YouTube people with hundreds of videos and more than 250,000 YouTube subscribers. Not bad. Besides being a YouTube celebrity, she’s also a philologist (one who studies linguistics and etymology) and that’s pretty much what most of her videos are about – she investigates words and phrases and teaches her audience about them.

I decided early this week that I wanted to feature a HotForWords video this Friday, only problem was, I didn’t know which one. With almost 500 videos it would take me a day to watch them all – so I decided to go with the highest rated video she ever made, Yoga Time!
