Katy Perry parody made South Philly shop owner YouTube sensation

Boutique owner has second life as YouTube sensation.

Katy Perry parody made South Philly shop owner YouTube sensation


The Passyunk Post alerted me to the alter ego of Kelli Mandruk, owner of South Philly's new Hip & Thrifty women's boutique.

Before Mandruk was selling chic, she was pretending to be Katy Perry in a video that garnered 43 million views since it was posted in 2010. My favorite part, for the record, is the autotuned dog.
