Torontoite Wins YouTube Award for Inanity

Well, it might as well be for inanity. Toronto's own TheWineKone won the 2006 award for "Best Commentary" with his video "Hotness Prevails/Worst Video Ever". The video runs long at over 8 minutes and features TheWineKone topless the whole time, while he rants about seemingly random crap throughout.

This hasn't deterred people from watching the video over 2.25 million times and leaving over 6600 comments. I still can't figure out wtf this "commentary" is about, and I'm left with the feeling that YouTube is FUBAR. I just don't get it. Maybe you do? The infamous video and more lie after the jump.

Now, you have to watch the whole thing before you are allowed to form an opinion. I did, so here's mine; the "Ask a Ninja" series, fittingly enough the winner of YoutTube's "Best Series", is more my style. The reason there's no "Ask a Pirate" series worth mentioning is because no one cares wtf a pirate has to say. TheWineKone is neither a Ninja nor pirate ("Ninja" should always be capitalized, lest you anger them), so I'm not really sure what his appeal is. If he's an undercover Ninja on the side, though, it might explain the appeal...

Incidentally he also has a MySpace page, and his only friend is Tom. I tried to contact TheWineKone for an interview last week both through his YouTube and MySpace pages, but I suppose he's too busy perfecting his Adam Sandler voice. Regardless of my opinions, kudos to TheWineKone for winning an award on one of the world's most visited office time-killer sites.
