You know how some people have clearly put a lot of thought into how to make a YouTube video that will go “viral”? And when you watch the video you’re almost exhausted by how much EFFORT went into making it look like NO EFFORT went into it, and you kind of just want to sit down? But at the same time, the painstaking “thought” and “work” kind of does pay off because the video is successfully weird enough that you almost feel like you should share that video with your friends because it would almost be rude NOT to? And the next thing you know you see it a couple places while you’re catching up on your RSS and then nine months later your mom sends you the link with a “Lots of Love,” and a viral video is born and dies right before your eyes? So this, whatever this is, is basically one of those:

Congrats to this guy, I’m sure. Living the dream. (Thanks for the tip, Funtastik.)
