Beautiful Spoof of Jay Leno Ad trumps actual Jay Leno Ad

If you’re as incensed at what has happened with The Tonight Show this year as I am, below is a video you’ll just love. This is such a great use of YouTube. It’s more than entertaining – it’s protest.

It’s hard for me to figure out what I love more: Leno smirking at the camera at the line, “I’m a weirdo,” or the commercial ending with, “The Tonight Show” on the screen, accompanied by Thom York’s usually haunting, “I don’t belong here.”

The original video this comes from has 63308 views on YouTube. This one, however, has more than twice as many at 127,539 – and the original had a three week head start!

Lesson to be learned: If you want a viral video, you just need a really good idea. (And a healthy dose of intense anger doesn’t hurt.)
