Oh, there's no accounting for taste. Like many others I saw lonelygirl15 on youtube. Unlike all those who realized the lighting and professionalism of the editing couldn't possibly be that of an amateur, I just bought the whole thing and wondered what religion she possibly could be talking about. Now I know - it was a Hollywood fantasy about religion. Ah, that I understand.
And now I found a video that puts it all in perspective for me. It was all a large, elaborate monkey PR stunt, so says the purple monkey. For anyone who thinks this video starts slowly, just wait until after the first minute. When he started explaining how Bree and Daniel are really puppets full of purple monkeys, I started laughing that uncontrollable laugh that I wish I could find on purpose. The height of my laughter was at 1:40 when the purple monkey was explaining that Daniel was always lying down or sitting because it took fewer monkeys to run him that way. It's still pretty funny after that, but not quite the same.
I guess not everyone laughed. It only got 3 stars out of 5. It gets 5 from me and this link. Isn't it a strange world?
