Welcome to Viral Video Wednesday, May 27th :-) For anyone who noticed, last week’s VVW was skipped because it coincided with my book blog tour stop of They Plotted Revenge Against America, and I wanted to give the book the whole day. But we’re back this week, and this week’s installment topic is LOST.
I am a Lostie, for sure… though not quite as much of one as some people. I keep acquiring, but haven’t read any of, the books that are mentioned in the television series LOST. I guess since the next season won’t start until FEBRUARY OF NEXT YEAR , then I have time to read said books, but my point is that I’m a middle of the road Lostie. I do my best to watch every episode, I’ll probably be working my way through the whole series to date between now and the next (and final) season, and trying to get caught up on a lot of the theories floating around. I’m not so much of a fan that I’m going to build a SIM for it on SecondLife (they already have one, btw, been there… not much going on at the time), nor am I going to make a fan site, change my username to FRECKLES629, or start hiding in the bushes whenever I see a puff of black smoke nearby. But, I do enjoy the show.
So, in honor of the shows recent season finale, I’m dedicating my VVW to some of the fan and funny LOST vid clips. I’d love for you to share your favorites, too, either leaving a link in your comment or posting a VVW on your blog and linking up :-D So, on with the vids!
During the first half of the series, they showed some silly Lost parodies. So I had to go on YouTube and see what other people were doing. The Fine Brothers have quite a few really funny ones, and they remind me of when we were kids playing with an incomplete set of toys. Barbies, He-Man toys, and Star Wars figures would fill in for whatever character we were lacking, and as kids, we never batted an eye. But, as an adult looking back, sometimes they were funny or even bizarre substitutions. The Fine Brothers make that very point:
Star Trek meets Heroes meets Lord of the Rings meets LOST meets Bill and Ted meets Matrix meets Back to the Future (in other words, just like the season finale ):
I loved reading Mad Magazine when I was a kid, and loved it when they made a TV show. Here’s MadTV’s LOST, guest starring Jeff Probst from Survivor:
And The Bohemian LOST Rhapsody, with a Weird Al Yankovic touch:
Jimmy Kimmel’s also a Lostie, and he likes to visit Hawaii… so he decided to combine the two and visit the set of LOST:
And I’ll end my VVW with this LOST clip from fellow Hoosier and Lefty, David Letterman (btw, I sat through all ten… you’ll get that if you do to ):
So, what’s your favorite thing from the show LOST? Who’s your favorite character? What’s your favorite LOST memory?
Do you hate (strongly dislike) LOST and wish people’d just shut up about it already? If so, What’s wrong with you? Why do you dislike the show? :-D
Next week’s VVW topic is: I didn’t make it on American Idol, and look at me now!
