A true YouTube video montage

Viral means, i.e., a friend IMing me, brought the following to my attention today. It's Weezer's video for their new song, "Pork and Beans."

Aside from the band's new tune, the music video features many of the famous icons who've intentionally (or unfortunately) competed in a game of YouTube Idol during the last few years. Wired has some insight.

Web celebs like Tay Zonday (Chocolate Rain), Lauren Caitlin Upton (Junior Miss South Carolina), Judson Laipply (Evolution of Dance), that creepy, weepy Britney defender, the evil gopher and many more make clever cameos in the video. Talk about your long tails.

Who needs American Idol when we have YouTube making random people famous?
