The beauty of YouTube is that anyone can be a movie maker; the curse is that anyone can be a movie maker. The chances of these super unpopular clips turning into the new Gangnam Style are slim to none – after all, they’re unpopular for a reason.
“ford focus”, 10 Views
Two minutes and 22 seconds of a guy showing off the engine of his Ford Focus, with a constant, unsettling buzzing sound in the background. The car honks and revs at one point – when the dude gets around to shooting the car’s interior, though, there's no one sitting in the driver's seat. The only logical explanation for this is that the Ford Focus is possessed by the spirit of the dark lord. It looks sweet doin’ it, though. Totally cherry. Takeaway Quote: "Bzzz."
“Online Aristocrat Pokies Slot Big Red Game; Emulator Free Play”, 36 Views
One minute, 33 seconds of some broad playing an Australian-themed video poker game.
