Video_Today's YouTube Spiral

We all know you can't just watch one YouTube video. It's like quoting The Wedding Singer. One leads to another and another and before you know it, it's a contagious rabbit trail of one trying to trump the other.

Thanks to The Hairpin, I came across this video below which I thought was wow-Mom-hilarious. Not hilarious because I loved her tips to Asians on library etiquette or because her Asian impression was so realistic that I could close my eyes and believe I was in China, but because this girl, who is so passionate about her ignorant convictions, thought the logical thing to do was to post a video of her delivering those convictions on the world wide web accessible to anyone and everyone...forever. I can't tell you how much I love her thought process.

To me, this is actually worse than leaking a sex tape because at least with a sex tape, it's mostly your pride on the line. You're mortified. It passes. It's archived. It dies down eventually. With a video posted like this one, you can say bye-bye to your pride, any shred of respect you had to begin with, any Asian-anything, the list goes on. This girl has crowned herself the UCLA queen of ignorance and the worst part is that it's at a university which is an unfortunate place to mess up. Young people are so fierce in how they communicate online these days and something like this can set. It. Off. Sadly, it wouldn't surprise me if she's dropped out of school, moved to Nebraska, or changed her least for the rest of the semester.

After viewing, I then watched Rabbit trail #2 which led to Rabbit trail #3.
