Fred. Yeah, you know that Youtube infection.
If you don't know, I suggest you stay far and wide from ever typing anything similar to 'Fred' in the search bar.

I really, really can't stand that little bacteria. He's gained internet fame by somehow DOING EVEN LESS that reality TV personalities! What's the deal with him? Has he got some kind of disorder? Apparently his caretakers are doing a bad job, keeping him off his meds for long enough for him to get out of his straight jacket, run away and shoot Youtube videos of himself.

This is one of many reasons I suspect our world really has lost it, seeing as he seems to have genuine fans. That's a thing about popular culture I can't get my head around, the fact that people put mind-bogglingly crappy sh*t on a pedestal.
I'm not advocating hate, but it's hard to disguise my resentment.

To those who like him, what is it about him that you like?

I love FRED!
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 4:14:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, because he's just so silly and stupid that it makes me laugh!

I don't know Fred. But I also have never seen the Shamwow commerical, either. I live under a rock. It's pleasant.

I don't know anything about Shamwow. Maybe because I live in the rocky, barren wastes of Sweden... It's really nice here too

FRED! I've always had a special spot in my heart for the little bugger...

I'm also a fan of the Easy Step and the Yes Dance. If you have not seen them, I suggest you do.

Like, right now.

You're yessing too hard!
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 4:59:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, and I like him just because he makes me laugh. I don't know why, but he just seems to make me laugh, partially at his ignorance...it's almost hard to explain that part.

I like "Fred looses his meds".

Also, "Fred Goes Swimming".
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:04:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Those are the best two, in that order.

Yeah... They have an uncensored version, too. I haven't watched it, but you can imagine...Kiki is my favorite.

Are you on Fred's word-of-mouth PR team?

Because you just helped increase his popularity.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:25:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
What?

Oh, no...I just like him. I have nothing to do with anything about his popularity. *shrugs* I only discovered him a bit ago.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:25:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wtf? lots of ppl like fred
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:29:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
*murders Fred*
tell all the others what you've seen.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:30:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nooooo!!! Poor FRED.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/26/09 - 5:33:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
sleepy, i was talking to the poster of the thread, not you.

And the reason people like Fred is exactly as Smurf said, people have lost it.

Nowadays popular TV is fast-paced with undeveloped characters. People want flicks that don't force them to think. Instant gratification and nonsensical fluff is catching.

I do realize this, but it's hard to rant about something and not mention what it is...

And I do agree with what you said about the pacing, but I think it applies to culture in general, and I'm sure that's what you meant.
The thing is that it actually works on me too, I'll be first to admit. Three minutes is long for a Youtube flick. It's a sad development, it is.
