Yay, video rewind time! My favorite videos this week have a political lean because I’ve been trying to educate myself a little more about the GOP candidates.
#1 Awkward first kiss of virgin newlyweds
There’s apparently a new “reality TV” show out called The Virgin Diaries. It’s about “real-life virgins” and how they go about everyday life. I don’t know why this seems like a show that anyone would want to watch, but I guess it is kind of the anti-Jersey Shore. This clip certainly did not convince me to begin watching the show…

#2 Ron Paul on Trash TV in 1988
Since we’re on the topic of trashy TV, I thought I’d share this video of Ron Paul that I had not seen before. In this 10-minute video. Ron Paul is on some really weird show in the 80s as a presidential candidate. In it, he’s trying to argue that the U.S. should end the war on drugs. Interestingly, he’s making the same argument in this race. The host of the show is extremely rude. I guess we’ve come a long way if the worst part about TV today is Jersey Shore and/or Fox News.

#3 Rick Perry Offending… Everyone
Last Wednesday, Rick Perry released a campaign ad titled Strong. In the four days since then, his video has managed to garner nearly 630,000 dislikes on YouTube. His video has the “achievement” of earning more dislikes than Rebecca Black’s Friday. It’s hard to fathom these numbers until you watch the video. And if you want more fun, there are a million remix videos available for your viewership.

I watch a lot of the internet and the internet is always throwing up awesome videos. So I decided to start a completely irregular section on this site called video rewind where I basically peruse the videos that I most enjoyed watching over the span of time since the last posting. I’ll hopefully cut down on posting these videos on Facebook since about 104% of my visitors come from Facebook. WARNING: I may steal videos you show me and post them without credit, thus making me look cooler than I am. It’s all part of the ploy.
#1 Deadmau5 in London for the Nokia Lumia Launch
As a fan and user of the Windows Phone 7, I’m always looking for opportunities to promote it. As a fan of Deadmau5, this was kind of a perfect event. Even if it was in England. But this is sick. Light projection on a London building while Deadmau5 breaks it down. The Nokia Lumia looks interesting. Once Nokia refines their designs a little bit and comes to the US, I’ll be replacing my HTC HD7S with a Nokia offering. This is way in the future, of course. I just got a new phone.

#2 Nerdy white kid KILLS “Look at Me Now” (while cooking pancakes)
This video has amassed 1.6 million views in 1 day. Let that sink in. More people watched this video since yesterday than there are people in Trinidad & Tobago. More people probably watched this video than people took showers in Estonia since this video was released. I’m assuming Estonians don’t like to shower. This dude, Mac Lethal, drops an insane rhyme to Chris Brown’s Look At Me Now. While cooking a stack of pancakes (that I hope someone will eat). He may even rap faster than Busta Rhymes. Me, I’m still working on being able to read Busta Rhymes’ part while he raps in while listening to Look At Me Now.

#3 How To Greet People (and other self-help)
I found this guy’s channel because YT promoted it to me before they went all crazy and changed the front page. This is from April 2011 so some of you may have already seen it. Here, evmoneyTV breaks it down and tells us socially awkward creatures how to make an… interesting… first impression on people.
