First-Ever YouTube LIVE '08 event

Over the weekend, a lot of us who have made YouTube viewing (or uploading) part of your daily habit...or daily guilty pleasure witnessed the first YouTube Live '08 event last Nov. 22 featuring the best, noteworthy and everything in between of what's on at YouTube.

With the advent of YouTube (and free other video-uploading sites for that matter), anyone can be a celebrity with a worldwide audience; that is if your video is way great or just annoying. 

Well, that's the power in our hands, the internet users all over the world. 

The following creative souls (a million views ++ on YouTube) , however, definitely inspire everyone who has a video camera, Internet access, rudimentary editing software, and talent (or lack thereof) to reach the whole world.

Afternoon Pick-Me-Ups Yay!

Hilarious! Just as the work afternoon winds down...my eyelids seem to be filled with lead weights. Coffee seems to be the worst choice for me for an afternoon pick-me-up, caffeine has made me jittery lately. So, I reach out for my mouse and click on crazy vids up at YouTube...

Yay, them guys at YouTube should have a new channel up labelled "Caffeine Substitutes" or "Hilarious Pick-Me-Ups". 

Just in time for the U.S. Elections: The Rep and Dems Dance-Off...Not Once BUT Twice!



and now for the Main Event the big Kahunas of the two (Dance) Parties



Who gets served on Election Tuesday? Your guess might be good as mine, Yay! c",

Sarah Palin Phone Prank (?!)

Two Montreal DJs, Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, pulled off one helluva of a media hoax. They called U.S. Vice-Presidential Sarah Palin posing as French President Nicolas Sarkozy and staff. The stunt was deemed to be real as can be heard on an audio clip posted on YouTube.

I have heard the stuff being said and it is funny. Sarah was cautious though and stuck to her talking points. She really was suckered in the 5-minute plus prank by the DJs collectively known as the "Masked Avengers". The nerve and gall of these DJs to pull off this one, hahahaha, noteworthy totally!

Here's the whole audio clip of the outrageous phone prank: 


The Masked Avengers from Montreal really ROCK!
