The Buzz Report: Hottest Web videos of the week4:20 /
The Buzz Report takes a vacation from news in favor of great singers, funny animals, and YouTube sensations. It's all Clogging the Tubes, all the time!
Hi, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the Buzz Report � the show about the tech news that everybody�s talking about. This week, the news � didn�t do it for me. The Gadget of the Week was an overpriced special-edition Prince Opus iPod Touch for two grand, and that�s just silly. President Obama keeps putting RIAA lawyers in the Justice Department, Amazon briefly de- listed all its gay and lesbian books, Facebook apparently makes your grades lower, and Ashton Kutcher and CNN are racing for a million followers on Twitter. I just hate Twitter now. It�s all too depressing to talk about, which is why, this week, I�m doing yet another Buzz Report special edition: Clogging the Tubes. Yep, this week�s show is all about the crazy stuff on the Internet this week. Because there seemed to be a lot more than usual. I promise, the news will return next week. In the meantime � let�s begin with musical entertainment, shall we? Britain�s Got Talent in unexpected packages. I hear Susan Boyle already has a record contract. And a makeover, of course. This is her now: They�re good. Speaking of good, 100 bajillion YouTube people were impressed with this train station dance-off: It turns out that it�s not actually an improv-everywhere flashmob thing � it�s actually a coordinated flashmob that�s a promo for a Belgian TV show. Still. Awesome. But � there�s NO better video? That�s gonna be one grainy show. And College Humor proves it�s got its finger on the pulse of the Internet with an awesome comment-troll take-off. Two words: gen. ius. Ok, we wouldn�t be clogging the tubes if we didn�t have some animals. Set to music. Dig this parrot. I beg you to visit zooborns.com, a Website so cute it�s almost too cute. And as long as we�re doing cute, this kid�s got 2 million views and a spot on Ellen. RIDICULOUS! Thank you, funny children, amazing parrot, cute animals, and good singers for giving us all a break from real life. Just for a moment. And that�s the Buzz Report for this week, everyone. I�m Molly Wood, and thanks for watching.
