Blogging about old as shiat memes? WTF?

Heh, I remember that sketch! If I'm not mistaken, we made fun of that right here, although some people thought it was a police sketch if I'm remembering it correctly.

What was the point of all that? Was it a fake newscast? A bunch of morons that fell for a hoax? Or was it just a way to generate some page views without actually bringing any new information to the table?

I can see it being a fake newscast because they are way to casual with their "This guy's" and their "You people's", it's definitely not very professional. I also don't really buy a newscast going ahead with that stupid "sketch"....

Either way, the article does nothing to explain how the video "came to be". That would entail having a story about who made it, why they made it, how they got all the people to participate. Instead  we get a page that says "There was this video once, and it got popular. We can't figure out WHY it is so popular, but here it is again, in case everyone forgot about it.". This is more like a "making of" special at the end of a movie that is really just the movie playing again.

Maybe Vivian Gomez from "TheRoosevelts.com" was the original person behind this video and needed some more money from the increased YouTube views? It would explain a lot.

Personally, I'd never even heard of this stupid video before now. It's amazing the low quality shiat that makes the internet sit up and look interested. I think I could get a video of snow melting in my yard to get a million hits if I could just put it to a stupid auto-tuned song.

The TV station fell for a hoax, almost certainly.

You would be surprised what you can get local TV stations to put on the air.

I too was hoping for the rapist/newscaster sketch and maybe an actually well written article analyzing how the newscaster felt sitting in front of a sketch of himself describing it as a rape suspect with a straight face. I guess I'm too optimistic about internet "journalism" (or "journalism" in general)

Who knows? I might just get it to work... Wouldn't be 'til next winter, but you'll know it's me if some dumb-ass video of snow melting becomes a "viral" hit next winter.

Getting sick of anything popular getting tagged as "viral", BTW... It's like they're setting new records for how quickly people get a word's meaning completely wrong.

He's lame. It's a celebration of lowest-common-denominator bullshiat. I didn't know that there could actually be a dumbed-down version of America's Funniest Home Videos until my kids started watching his show. The guy does nothing more than announce fart joke videos and tell you that they're fart joke videos. His standup is a little better, though, except now all I can do is picture his dumb-ass show every time I hear his standup on Sirius.

Granted, the videos are the weakest part of the show. But he doesn't yet have a show doing the non-video-watching stuff. Also, he went on chatroulette with a live studio audience. That's comedy gold, brother. And you really shouldn't base your opinion of things on how original they are or who their intended demographic is, or you'd have to feel the same way about Shakespeare.

I didn't compare his show to AFV because of its originality(or the lack thereof), I referenced it because AFV found the bottom of the barrel, but Tosh cut out the bottom of that barrel and burrowed into the ground beneath it. If anyone goes any deeper,, they may pierce the Earth's mantle, and I'm not sure what will happen next...

I like that. It sums up 21st century pop culture perfectly. Every intense storm is a microburst, every movie remake is a reboot, and every popular video is "viral". I'd add the 'every gun is an AK-47' and 'every dog is a pitbull' phenomena, but I think those are just ignorance, as opposed to latching on to a popular term and trying to sound hip by using it whenever possible.
