WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: The Ten Biggest Cocks In Advertising

This weekend I discovered my new personal hero: Charlie Brooker, a BBC TV presenter who hosts a show called Screenwipe, which analyzes television. If you enjoy sarcasm, profanity and media studies, then this is the show for you. And if the above video rant against the Ten Biggest Cocks in Advertising doesn't win you over, then try out his rants about MTV's Sweet Sixteen, or computer games, or American television, or 24, or High School - The Musical, or UK TV exported to the US, or Doctor Who, or my personal favorite punching bag, Torchwood. And if all of that isn't enough for you, then the half-hour long Guide To Television should pretty much do you in. I can easily see how somebody might find him an utterly annoying bag of shit (as he might even describe himself), but to me Charlie Brooker has become THE shit.

Truly, this is why God created YouTube.
