I am looking for the word for a situation like this:
Someone is planning to make a big instruction video for how to fold fitted sheets, but just before he's finished his big project, someone else uploads his video, which becomes popular.
Then that other popular video has (ninja'd) the other guy.
I'm sure there is a word for it, but I just can't think of what it is. And I've been thinking about this in the back of my head for quite a while now.
PS: for those who don't know what ninja'd is, I apologise, it's just the best fitting word for me: http://urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ninja%27d
