Proving I Will *Never* Understand The Internet

James at work sent around this video which has gone viral on YouTube – the thing has garnered 2.3 MILLION views so far.

See if YOU can figure out why:

I mean she’s cute and all. But – what. the. hell?

That’s OK. Bryan has figured out his own version that was much easier and quicker to make.

He can even do it without blinking, watch… keep watching… keep watching…

    Face it, she’s cuter than Bryan.

  2. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    But Bryan has accessories?!?!

  3. Anonymous

    She is cuter, but I don’t blink. Ever. I win.

    She doesnt have anything on Bryan. I am thinking that we need to start sending the pic of Bryan to everyone we know…and see if we can get it to 2 million views via emails in a day. What do you think??

    Hmm… couldn’t get the vid to show. Oh, well. I just want you to know I’ve been catching up…. I am so jealous of your concert going! What a great one that must have been! Wow…

    Stay warm!

    it’s the “bush baby” big eyes she has……

  7. Mamma

    I didn’t want to say anything, but I think Bryan has something on his nose.

  8. Nancy

    Duh, I admit I don’t “get it” … what ever she’s doing or not doing.

    Bryan at least is showing the results of his rockin’ rhinoplasty.

  9. Tree

    Bizarre. Maybe it’s like us – we are curious, but ultimately disappointed.

  10. Rachel

    I like Bryan’s better.

    Although, jeeze, he’s one hell of a starer.

    I can’t win!

  11. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Rachel, I never beat him either.

  12. Sarah O.

    Well, I think Bryan’s cute. But don’t give him any ideas, now. I’m taken.

    Both of them are giving me the creeps.

    Came over from Blurbomat – looks like *Bryan* is the one with the sinus infection.

  15. WiredMonkey

    If that were more commonly the kind of “bozo” I saw on the interwebs, it would be a much more entertaining place. Rawk on Bryan.

  16. soccer mom in denial

    I’m with zipper – she’s got a Hello Kitty look about her. Bryan – not so much.

    Maybe she could be part of your next campaign?

  17. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Bryan doesn’t get sinus infections, the punk.

  18. alejna

    Huh. I’m also in the not-getting-it camp. However, I can say that the text at the end doesn’t shed any light for me. (As per Mollyfa’s question.) It says “arigato.” As in “thanks.”

  19. Sue at eLp

    Bryan? Way cuter!

  20. carrie

    I like Bryan’s version better. She is kinda creepy.

  21. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    She is saying “Thanks for making me a YouTube star for no fraking reason!!!”

    Did you see she has a whole channel??

  22. jennifer

    NO! That is stupid!

    Bryan did a far better job. Sheesh.

  23. Megan

    I. can’t. stop. watching.

  24. Mollyfa

    So does anyone know what it says at the end? Maybe that would explain it all.

    As for me, I think Bryan is adorable, but it looks like he’s been drinking.

  25. Sister Sassy

    THat is just weird! How old is that girl? She looks like a 13 year old anime chick with those eyes.


  26. MB

    weird. intriguing, but weird. bryan’s nose is much cuter.

  27. Izzy

    Bryan will go triple viral! So there! Weird big-eyed girl!

  28. debawriter

    Have you seen her yet?

    Same eyes, more talent.


  29. alphadaddy

    Have you tried turning up the volume? I mean, maybe it’s something as cool as the world’s longest fart.

  30. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Alphadaddy – have you gotten into my drafts folder?????? Seriously you just freaked my shit totally out. Wait till you see my post this morning.

  31. GoGo

    That’s hilarious. Thanks for the heads up about the Neilmed.


  32. Kaytabug

    I watched a few other clips and now I am plagued with more questions. Does she use a voice changer? At first I thought it was just because she was speaking Japanese but then she said “Vanilla Coke”. Now I wonder if she isn’t a military brat stationed in Japan.

    I’ll never get those 3 minutes of my life back!


    Um. WTF?

    I did start laughing, though. Mostly at how ridiculous that video is, and at the fact that I actually turned the sound UP, thinking I was missing something.

  34. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Miss Britt – maybe you have hit on it!!! As someone who has tried desperately to wiggle her ears all her life (it’s a family trait) – I have a whole new level of respect for elf girl.

  35. Miss Britt

    She kind of looks like an elf.

    I think she was trying to wiggle her ears. But I watched her ears closely. No wiggling.

    The first time I watched it all the way through and then realized the sound was off so I rewatched it with the speakers on assuming I’d missed something. But no. It sucks with the volume on and off.

    And why would you film yourself in your room for all the internets to see, but not straighten up the bed skirt in the background. I mean really. Get your priorities straight!

  38. A Mom Two Boys

    That’s weird…both of them.
