Jeff: What a huge week for videos. Business is usually a little bit slower in the summer, but we saw nineteen videos cross the 100-like mark.
Amir: According to my book of fake facts that breaks the previous mark of 18 (Jan 4 11, 1983). But of the 52 videos, which one stood out as your favorite?
Amir: Oh, is that why your forehead was bleeding when I came over to your desk the other day ?
Jeff: That's from when I was banging my head against the desk, trying to make sense of UFO Porno.
Amir: I actually went to school about an hour from UC Davis, and from my few visits over there I realized these guys knew how to party. They have more annual events then any university I know, and one of their most internationally respected programs is in Viticulture wine making. That cant be a coincidence.
Jeff: When they say "this is epic," they are not kidding. By my count, 10,000 soldiers died on that field.
Jeff: Back to the Future remixes , like the classic Brokeback to the Future, are basically can't-miss. Worst-case scenario you're watching a few minutes of Back to the Future footage.
Amir: Nostalgia is the fastest way to an internet viewers heart. Show them something that will make their insides smile and you've got an extra ten seconds of their attention. But if you mess up, if you ruin their favorite movie, then it can backfire on you just as much.
Jeff: Back to the Metal and This Is Epic were both great movies, which I'm glad everyone recognized. But not every great movie received the attention it deserved this week. Have you guys seen Wiik A Mole? It takes a second to get going, but give it a chance. This is the best DS wack-a-mole video you have ever seen, guaranteed.
Amir: I'm a little shocked this video didn't get more likes, but this may be because we've recently put up some Guitar Hero clips that trumped this one in terms of impressive reflexes. I call this the law of diminishing marginal likes. Though this guy does wii'k a good mole. Full disclosure: I titled that video, not Jeff.
Jeff: My title, DS-a-mole, didn't make nearly as much sense as a pun.
Amir: My under appreciated video of the week is Super Fuzz. I hate to ostracize our audience, but, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME PEOPLE!? DID YOU NOT EVEN WATCH THIS CLIP!? DID YOU NOT GET TO THE PART WHERE SUPERFUZZ, JUMPS OUT OF AN ELECTRIC CHAIR AND THROUGH A BRICK WALL!? HE CAN MOVE TRUCKS WITH HIS MIND, HE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH FISH! WHAT SUPERPOWER IS HE MISSING!?
Amir: Honestly, this is a 500 like video at least. The fact that it only has 35 as I type this does not bode well for our country as we move on in the war against terror.
Jeff: I'm not sure I want to work at a website where Super Fuzz gets 35 likes, and WTF-o-rama almost hits the century mark.
Amir: WTF-o-rama is definitely in the running for my surprise of the week. It makes me think we should just have one video which is a live feed of public access from any city in America.
Jeff: After studying WTF-o-rama, I've concluded that it's either for children or gay men. I'm honestly not sure which.
Amir: My surprise video of the week is Lindy Hop Showdown, which has over 200 likes and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Jeff: I don't know why you're so surprised. The Lindy Hop is HUGE in malt shops and sockhops across all 48 great states.
Amir: Why isn't that first lady Helen Herron Taft? She seems to be enjoying the show plenty!
Jeff: Let's talk a little bit about what we hope to see next week. Legally I can't tell anyone to hurt themselves, but if you do fall off any surfboards make sure you tape it and send it in.
Amir: I'm going to go ahead and dream the impossible dream: elephant masturbating. There I said it.
