At its best, YouTube videos are entertaining and informative. Usually, however, the site is filled with douchebags doing extremely stupid things.
Take, for example, L.A. Beast (aka Skippy62able). This muscled frat boy, complete with promotional baseball cap and shirt that reads "Guns don't kill people... I kill people," makes an attempt at forming an opinion about the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations.
On his description of the video, L.A. Beast writes:
"People can OCCUPY WALL STREET but I OCCUPY $260 bottles of CRISTAL CHAMPAGNE because I can afford to piss away my money."
In the video, the Beast tells us how to drink his 2004 Louis Roderer
Cristal (which he actually bought on sale for $199) -- "with extreme
caution, care, appreciation and sophistication."...then La Douchebag
proceeds to chug the bottle, stopping at the halfway mark to give the
world's largest belch.
What do we learn from this lesson in extreme greed? That "greed is
good," as Wall Street's Gordon Gecko would say? Since douchey frat boys
aren't quite as eloquent as fictional Wall Street raiders, we are left
with a simple "tastes like shit." Enjoy:
