Stray Polyps from the Internest
For years Tacky Raccoons has posted a small collection of Utoobage videos every weekend just for fun, entitled “The Saturday Matinee.” The videos posted are those that amuse us, and often include oddities and obscure musical relics from the past. Innocuous stuff, for sure.
We like to post ahead of time, so we linked and gave hoops to the delightful and fetching Miss Cellanea for this and this, thinking that the vids she turned up would be entertaining for folks of all ages, good manners and proper posture, i.e., those who peruse Tacky Raccoons. However, if you click on the links to those videos, you’ll see something like this:
Here are the screencaps of two vids we intended to post that have since been squelched by the Great Squelchers of the YouTube:
If anyone reading this blog is offended by the destruction of washing machines or the herding habits of sheep, DO NOT CLICK HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, or especially HERE, and DO NOT enjoy the videos posted below the double-line of death.
Yeah, so I went all caps. The YouTubers are out of line on this and they can bite me. Pass it on.
Update: Miss C has the story and forwarded new links.
Oh wow, I had no idea those were pulled! Luckily, I found replacements. Thanks for the heads up!
The guy who originally did the washing machine video was pissed that someone who copied him went viral, so that’s why that one was pulled. When I heard about it, I replaced the video at Neatorama, but neglected to update the one at Miss Cellania. The original video is here. http://youtu.be/6_PLnInsh7E
Now the sheep one is completely confuzzling. Harmful activities? That phrase isn’t even on the YouTube community guidelines page! But it’s probably a case of someone (or some group) flagging the particular copy that went viral. There are plenty of other copies. Like this one. http://youtu.be/pysET6UvN60
Official 2012 video [via]. It’s MUCH more intricate than what was shown in the original advert. Pure awesome.
Bill Deal &The Rhondels. R&B rock steady and clogging makes for a great ending to the Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, see you here tomorrow.

And since she’s back in the news again for actually memorizing 30 seconds worth of lines, here’s The Many FACE of Paris Hilton:
