Internet TV and the pursuit of stupid


Some would argue that Internet based video has always been stupid, what with the Chinese guys singing Backstreet Boys tunes, funny animal videos, etc. But it’s sunk to a new low with Diddy (or Puff Daddy, or Dork Face, or whatever his name is this week) filming himself buying a Whopper and announcing he’s “bought” a Youtube channel.

Luckily, net video is nothing if not democratic, so mere minutes later, some non-famous but funny person has already taken a jab at his Didness.
