YOU TUBE OF THE DAY--THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLEE

Postby (jingle_jangle) » Fri Sep 14, 2007 4:35 am

(Or the nice, the not-so-nice, and the not-so-nice looking.)

Think of this as the moving version of "Knock-Offs, etc.", or perhaps the "Ebay Auction of the Day" brought to the small screen.

Welcoming submissions of YouTube stuff that is amazing for whatever reason...Here's my first submission to sort of set a tone:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWSjUe0FyxQ

This got FOUR MILLION HITS in TWO DAYS. My first reaction was, "That's a guy?" This person will, sometime soon, enable a shrink to buy a new Mercedes for his wife/girlfriend.

Yes, let's leave Britney alone...completely alone, no cd sales, no tickets...alone.
Sounds like a plan!
I'm on it.

Aww, an emo kid! Sorry, cannot watch it - it brings tears to my eyes... Image
I remember, a while ago, this vid was very popular. Not ugly, of course, kinda funny... but i'm not sure this little girl will appreciate her dad putting the vid on youtube when she grows up...

That's right, emo.

That's right, it's ****. It gets funnier toward the end, if anyone can last that long.

But I am not losing it; not until I post a "pro-Britney" video here.

I'd say this kid identifies very strongly with his heroine; ref: the eye makeup and blonde hair/black roots.

In my generation, it was Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe who were the tragic poster girls...

I left Britney alone long ago--she never answers her email. I'm done with her.
Here is where I hide my music:

While we're at it, we can leave Paris alone too, and anyone else who gets attention just for breathing.

There's a lot more, but I've shown mercy and kept them to myself...Jimmy Kimmel interviewed this wacko; it's priceless, and CNN ran a brief story on him this am.

Kris, there are worse ways, too. I never miss the opportunity to laff.

Well after seeing this I am very proud to be the parent of sane children. Things apparently could have gone the other way..
anyone checked out the Prisoners dancing to Thriller? Especially the guy in the halter top

May you always love like you've never been hurt;
and may you always dance like there's nobody watching.
