I know that at first glance at this video you’ll be thinking one of two things; either, she has lost it… or I really recognise that ketchup-covered beard. Well good news folks! Firstly, with regards my losing it, that does somewhat presuppose my having it initially, so case sort of closed there.
Secondly you probably do recognise that beard, and that face for that matter; this man is Steve Kardynal, the man who brought the world such beauty as “Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen (Chatroulette Version)” and “Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version),” as you can see, both similar concepts, both equally brilliant.
If you haven’t seen either of these videos, I highly recommend a swift trip to YouTube in order to enrich your life with the wonder that is Steve Kardynal… although please read my article first?
Get your smile on
So, let’s recap. Steve Kardynal, the man whose twitter bio reads, “I am naked on the internet” has done a YouTube video in which he has someone pour various foods on him, in slow-mo, to music. And it is brilliant. Frankly, what we all need to do, is wack it onto 1080p, turn up the volume and enjoy. This video is surprisingly satisfying.
As can be said about all of Kardynal’s work, in particular his Chatroulette videos, which ultimately, are as he so aptly describes on his YouTube channel, perfect if you need “to get your smile on.” Kardynal, represents for me, the good and positive aspect of the internet which we so often forget when we hear of its many social and safety-related negatives.
Raining for charity
What makes this video even more enjoyable is that it isn’t just simply enjoyable, but it is all in aid of “Raining for Charity,” a donation page created by Kardynal along with Alex Negrete, which states that the pair will donate large portions of the profits they receive for the “Raining Food” videos to Action Against Hunger; a global humanitarian organization committed to ending world hunger.
The link beneath the video takes you to the website where you can read up on information about the organisation, how the money is spent, and can yourself donate to this great cause.
And yet, we come again to that part of the article where we look at the comments, some ridiculous, others fantastic, as always. This video is highly debated. It is described as “beautiful,” “disgusting” and “majestic.”
One comment assessed the videos generally appeal, in my opinion, very well: “I feel like this should be the stupidest video ever, and yet I cannot stop watching…” Totally fair. But my personal favourite, and generally all round perfect comment was whoever stated: “You’re eating it wrong.”
Spot on sir. A round of applause for you.
So as we round up this week’s Viral Video Column, as a final point, I would like to mention that surely such a considerable amount of sprinkles, as the amount that we see here, can only make for a good situation.
Except maybe surgery, surgery and sprinkles don’t mix.
