We have all seen lots of YouTube and Google Video but have you ever seen a woman breast feed a cat? (nsfw) Or a 500 KV electrical discharge? wonder what the daily show take on social networking is? check out videosift, a digg like collaborative blog for trolling up the best/weirdest? in video on the web.

If it doesn't have any of the peanut butter federlines, then what is the point?

also those are pretty funny.

HOLY CRAP, RUN!!

That Mythbuster's video is quite funny, but the Japanese water bottle rocket pack just about made me pee myself! Good thing I'm working alone today!

Dude, I loved the Daily Show piece, I totally missed it when it was on TV. Thanks, sourbrew!

"...have you ever seen a woman breast feed a cat?"

Yes, and my psyche is scarred forever.

The bummer is that YouTube has started removing copyrighted stuff wholesale. Like there is now nothing for American Idol and there were hundreds of videos. I can't imagine the Daily Show stuff will last that long.

We all knew it couldn't last, but it's too bad.

smackfu,

i would be surprised if the daily show went that route, i get the impression that they understand the importance of viral marketing and the internet. Stephen Colbert's the word is clearly a meta inspired comedy piece, and they frequently use video shorts that have been popular on del.icio.us or boingboing.

I agree sourbrew, I think outfits like the Daily Show are more likely to "get it" . In the end, whether or not copyrighted material is removed, will be up to each distributor.

also, i think the fact that Viacom uses the Daily Show and the Colbert Report to promote movies, books, and other products in the form of guests on both shows means that their income stream is less likely to be hurt by such things where as american idol has no possible value other than as a venue to push commercials through.

Cool site! I'm partial to Splideo myself. Between Videosift and Splideo you can kill a loooooooot of time today.

Does that woman have nipples of titanium, or is the cat toothless? Good Lord!
posted by Alvy Ampersand at 10:21 AM on February 21, 2006


Forget the teeth -- the average cat tongue is a wee little rasp. I've had to train my overly affectionate and motherly little black cat to stop licking my arms. I can't imagine training her to go for a much more sensitive spot. *shudder*

I saw the daily show peice when it aired, and I thought it was lame.

I'm pretty damn sure the writers for Colbert and TDS are reading MeFi. There have been some posts from MeFi that appear to have laid the foundation for a joke or theme for either show.

I eagerly await seeing a "FFF" easter egg on Colbert.

Fascinating.

I saw the daily show piece four minutes ago on my computer, and I thought it was cute and amusing.

Clearly, one of us is a dirty liar.
posted by Alvy Ampersand at 11:27 AM on February 21, 2006


I missed the Daily Show piece when it aired 'cause I got a phone call right when it started. So I just saw it now and I agree with Alvy Ampersand.

I saw today and enjoyed it. I can understand posting to say, "This was funny" or "I enjoyed this," because that is akin to laughing along with others.

What I find annoying and pointless is a comment such as, "I thought this was lame." So what? If you're not pointing out something better or offering even a critique then all you're doing is trolling. But why would an established member stoop to such behavior?

That woman obviously lives alone.

How does one discover all of a sudden that one's cat has the ability to breast feed a human nipple?

Cool!

Does this mean we can stop posting all those damn Google Videos to the FP now?

OH.
MY.
FUCKING.
GOD.


I saw that Japanese water-bottle rocket footage on TV, in Japan, circa 1997, and I've been telling everybody about it ever since as one of the most awesome things I've ever witnessed in my life. Kickstart70, I kiss you.

Watch the kid in the orange a few years later.

Thanks FFF, that's a great YouTube link. I was just about to post it to Videosift, but sourbrew beat me to it. Please keep them coming, if you all have any more.

The Passion Of The Benny Hill -- sheer hilarity, particularly for us non-believers.

The 500KV discharge is a double, I'm sure of it... There were a couple of capacitors that failed to separate in time, and the vid is an edited result of the electrical discharge. IIRC, the final arc of electricity was 2 stories high. If I didn't have a bottle and a half of wine in me, I'd search more. :)
