These absolutely kill me. It seems there was this kid working in his school AV room who got a little carried away with himself, and the tape fell into the hands of others. There's nothing R-rated in it so it's "work" friendly I guess. Start with the first one and work down.

I remember once seeing a little "interview" with the kid. He seemed to be taking all this in stride; the embarassment was apparently somewhat mitigated by being on the front page of Slashdot.

I like the Clone Wars one.

He's using a golf-ball retriever

There were other reports of him suffering depression and his mum wanted to sue the school or the kids that found and released the video, or something. Anyway, what a legacy.

I've seen these before and just rolled around laughing at it. The kid has some style though. He would have made a better Anikan Skywalker than that whiny bratt of a kid they have now.
