AOL News, "Where Are They Now?"
Finalist Standalone Video (Not Principally Deployed on YouTube)

"Where are they now" is a hilarious spoof on some of the most memorable viral videos of 2007. A bewildered bodega clerk watches as the "Don't Tase Me Bro" guy walks into his store, puts his hands in the air and starts repeating the famous line over and over. He's followed by the "Leave Britney Spears Alone" guy, who emerges from the corner of the store to start pleading for his liberation. Last to enter is "Miss Teen South Carolina", who walks up to the befuddled clerk and proclaims herself lost, in search of "the Iraq." At the end of the skit, a voice chimes in, urging users to "keep up with your favorite flashes-in-a-pan" by going to aol News.
