What do Britney Spears and Bill Belichick have in common?

As many of you may have seen, the following video was posted on YouTube recently, featuring a guy with bleached hair and eyeliner crying and defending Britney Spears after her recent VMA performance/disaster...

Anyways... New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, is currently under fire after a Patriots video assistant was caught by NFL security filming the New York Jets' defensive signals. The following video was posted to YouTube shortly thereafter...:

It's kind of interesting how a "regular" person can create a piece of viral media and become famous instantly (the Britney guy is apparently trying to get his own reality show now....) ... And it's even more interesting that they can become so popular that other people can impersonate them in attempt to ride their coat tails to fame... and a lot of times it works. I guess in the age of YouTube, it's not that hard.

Thanks for sharing this, Lindsey. I love the idea, but the execution seems kind of lame. He could do a better job of seeming like he's really crying, he was too lazy or macho to put on the makeup, and it's "he's a human," not "he's a human being".

Chris Crocker has been given a show. He's pretty talented and funny. See this video of him on the Jimmy Kimmel show.
