The title is about a little concept we were running off each other in class today, that YouTube is so horrendously mixed up with all sorts of anything everywhere. The fact is the categories aren’t exactly blatant and they’d be better off more disconnected, say, into their own sites or something. Of course, this does lead to rather stupid names much like GoogTube and so and so forth.
Well, class today was focused on YouTube but not in the manner you would expect. We had to choose a video and do a presentation on it. Apparently if we’re not happy with the teacher talking rubbish throught the whole Wednesday lesson we’re going to have to do it instead. Fair enough.
My choice was kinda based off the fact that I couldn’t think of anything else, so I did a little show and tell with the video “Impossible is Nothing” and it’s subsequent parody, “Impossible is the opposite of possible.” It’s just funny, really, but it’s interesting that a commercial parody was made from a viral fad. I can’t help but wear a big grin when he recites the chunk of corny one liners right towards the end.
“Just… be yourself, as long as that means that you are a successful person. And if being yourself means… that you’re a loser means then watching this tape has been a waste of time for you, because there’s nothing I can say that will make your life any better.”
