I'm not normally into musicals, but I found myself singing along in the second half.

You can make all the funny comments you want in this thread, but god save the person that makes the first "hater" remark.

That was actually very well done, at least until they pointed at me at the end.

As someone who used to have to moderate the YouTube comments of an environmental non-profit's channel, let me just say "brava!"

It's a great video, but if I were a troll, this would totally validate me for life.

The cafe's "Do not feed the troll" sign is a nice touch.

What is it with people and youtube comments that brings out the worst in them? Who are all these haters?

American teenagers, mostly.

I recognised a few as British comedians. Josie Long (wasn't she at MaxFunCon?) is a standup comic, Isy Suttie was on Peep Show (among other things), I remember Dawn Porter made some documentaries a while back, the rest I don't know but I'm guessing they do the same sort of things.

Nah. American teenagers aren't up on British slang (Mong? Don't think so), never mind British celebs.

As an aside, I'm baffled by Youtube's accounting. According to the page I'm looking at, the video has 1038 likes, 20 dislikes, and 329 views.

Back in the olden times Richard Herring used to be 50% of Lee & Herring along with Stewart Lee.

IIRC, Youtube updates likes/dislikes immediately, but view counts are updated once per day.

And I believe that embedded views don't count, though likes on embedded views do.

I love the end-credits scene where the gibbon is flinging shawarma.

I agree that most are probably on the young side, but no way are they even mostly American. There is plenty of xenophobic, racist, homophobic, misogynistic hate to go around. No country has cornered the market on hate to my knowledge.

Well, we've done a pretty good freaking job of competing to corner it.

Seems no-one has yet recognised actor and filmmaker Noel Clarke. Poor old Mickey, it seems he'll always be the metal dog.

Oh. Apart from the person who did. I can't see yellow, apparently. I will take this chance to add that I like the prominent featuring of the Mac logo in the video, just imagining the rage that is filling a certain kind of troll as they see it. Bwahahaa!

No idea of how they work things, but I just refreshed the page here at 03:21 Australian Eastern Time, and it's now 18,222 views, 3469 likes, 52 dislikes.

As an assumption I would expect that some amount of those dislikes are from the very people that the song is calling out. Obviously not 100%, but I'd estimate a fair proportion. Ignoring views, if they are indeed updated at a different schedule to likes/dislikes (and why not, youtube's "related video" algorithm is seeming increasingly wonky if not out right broken to me) the ratio of the earlier view by my fellow Philosopher Dirtbike would be 51.9 likes per dislike. From my data the equivalent would be 66.712 (to 3 decimal points). Yet taking into account views, as proportion of views the former (for 'like') is 315.502%, (something to do with Levi jeans? Or would the fact that it is also a 3 decimal approximation not supportive of such claims) while for the later it would be 19.037% (3 decimal points).

I have no idea about what those numbers mean apart from that it is a long weekend, I've just quit smoking, and I may have consumed some amount of brnady.

This was fun, but I was distracted because my brain kept trying to parse whether or not the singer's face was phase-shifting between Allisons Brie and Hannegin.

Also IIRC, when a youtube video gets too many views all at once, it errors out to read 329 views.

I looooove that this video is actually about a specific commenter, who also showed up to comment on that video.

Fucking awesome. This was PERFECT.
posted by odinsdream at 12:25 PM on June 8, 2012


I have read that once a video hits ~300 views (at a certain rate?) YouTube pauses updating the count until some form of verification occurs .

I would be happy if 'wanking gibbon' became the common way to describe an internet hater.
