Roller coaster

These have to be watched in order, such as I just watched them, to have the desired effect. I feel so weird right now after watching these two videos.

First, from wtf_inc, this video, which is among the strangest things I've ever seen, and yet strangely artistic and dancelike at the climax (no double entendre intended). I really can't imagine what on earth has motivated these dudes to work up this strange ottoman-humping routine. It is truly weird. (My fave comment from the wtf_inc post was, "They had better enjoy that ottoman. That's about all they will ever get to hump if the girls see this video."

And second, via dani_namaste, this quite moving snippet from the British version of American Idol (which I believe Simon Cowell started first, before launching the US version):

Isn't that a twist to watch after the first one?

now that the brief bit of snark is over, that Paul Potts clip still makes me cry, and I've watched it like six times now. And yeah, this is the original version of what's now America's got Talent, not American Idol. But hell, if half of those bitches on Idol could sing like he does, I'd be in heaven.

Yeah, I was going to say the same thing - it's Britain's Got Talent, which explains why he's singing opera. ;)
