This is certainly in the category of "so awful it comes around and is great."

why isn't this in the horror catergory?

I meant to say that "this is a video somebody made for their children man don't talk shit." I have a bad secretary.

All of the Teletubbies child psychology research condensed into one loopable pearl.
|RandomFerret - 2008-03-19 |
That's completely retarded and I will give it no more than five stars.
|Wonko the Sane - 2008-03-19 |
Why do I need to be the asshole here? This should have never made it past the hopper.
|Pookles - 2008-03-19 |
do i laugh at this clip? no
do i show this clip to my friends or family? no
will anyone's day be bettered by his viewing this clip? no
why obscure the treasures of youtube with this inverted rating scale? if i'm searching poetv for videos of people jumping off a roof, or elephants eating poop, or possibly even drunken russians in a tunnel, why subject me to this dross?
is the appeal of inverted rating similar to the idea of rickrolling someone? to derive a little bit of joy from wasting someone's time?
i understand that POE proper's mission is to hold internet failures up to a shining beacon of anonymous ridicule, and i totally approve of that. is that your rationale for 5-starring this video?
A Jumping Spider!
This is why I voted for it. Because I knew this would happen.
My day has been made.
please to be explaining? you voted for this in the hopper so that i could express my befuddlement?
thank you!!! because of garbage like this and the retards that give it four or five stars the rating system is meaningless.
Pookles: your MIT-addled brain has clouded your judgment. Perhaps if you spent less time pondering how many Smoots per hour your ping pong ball pushing robot can travel, you'd understand the wonderful awfulness of nonsense such as this. Plus, a movie film can change your life.
THE POERATINGS HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED! HOW WILL WE BE ABLE TO ACCURATELY PORTRAY OUR FEELINGS ABOUT KITTIES NOW!?

WAAAAHHH NOT EVIL ENOUGH
RAGE RAGE RAGE
STAR WARS, ON PAR WITH YTMND
THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED US
And even after all this, no one mentioned it meets vgp standards. :(
i don't think anyone is very outraged, i just don't understand why people respond to a voting system by pooping all over it. as you might have guessed from my initial question, i just want to know what your personal motivations for 5-starring videos that are roughly as entertaining as watching cold oatmeal.
1 you are caminante, and... i dont know?
2 somehow you derive schadenfreude from watching someone film their toy animal being moved up and down stairs
3 you hope that ranking bad videos highly will make someone angry, and making someone else angry will give you pleasure
4 you are bookmarking this video for future wanking
5 you are commenting on the futility of crowd-based rankings
6 you like watching cold oatmeal
for 2, i can understand for clips like the most awkward weatherman ever, or maybe even the mind-numbing inanity of the professional wrestling ones, but honestly, is this video so exceedingly outrageous?
if your 6 year old nephew showed you this video as something he made, would you be thrown into a paroxysm of mirth? is it funny because it was likely made by adults who buy into make-believe animals to a greater extent than the average person?
the kid receiving the blastoise card is a marvelous celebration of make-believe taken to an amusing extreme. this video? this is just... not good?
so: what emotion or thought process motivates you to 5-star this video? i am not saying that no valid reasons exist to 5-star this video, i just can't think of any good ones.
in closing, i would like to say
ps what happened to private messages on this site? do they still exist?
And thus started the great poetv secession of 2008...
The point of five-staring this video is the horror of it. You could think of it as tradition from POE-proper, where almost none of the pages featured are genuinely amusing. They are mostly just the sort of things that make you lose faith in humanity, and that is why we love POE!
A Jumping Spider!
I didn't read any of that.
Don't worry, sparky. After the initial trade of ones and fives, this will likely settle into 2 star territory, never to be watched again.
The system really does work, you know.

I had no idea this video would cause such outrage.
I am pleased.
|tamago - 2008-03-19 |
These five stars are not for the video. They are for the outrage that seems to be generated by five star ratings for this video.
|Stopheles - 2008-03-19 |
Come on, guys, let's get back to the topic at hand:
Somewhere, someone is beating off to this clip.
|Gamara II - 2008-03-20 |
I can't decide whether to give this video 0 stars or infinity stars, so here's something in between.

|Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2008-03-20 |
Really, this is crap.
|KnowFuture - 2008-03-23 |
Meets all the criteria I can think of for a viral video.
Let's all enjoy it before some idiot from work or somebody's mom begins the process of fwd'ing it to every goddamned living thing within 50 yards of a computer.
