Youtube Tuesdays

After last week's edition of Youtube Tuesdays was linked to by woot.com, I got a HUGE spike in traffic. This week I'm going to try something to help encourage traffic to everyone's favorite YouTube videos. Here's the deal:

1. On your blog, make an entry that showcases your favorite YouTube videos you've found in the past week.
2. In the post, include a link back here.
3. Write a comment on this post linking back to your blog, and I'll update this post to link back to you.

It's as simple as that. Now, onto the videos:

1. Michael J. Fox - Japanese Commercial
A wacky commercial for a Japanese drink featuring Michael J. Fox. His facial expression at the end is priceless.

2. Mr. T Fashion Show
Who convinced Mr. T to do these videos? Chock-full of 80s cheesiness, watch Mr. T act as an MC of a 'fashion show'. Does anyone know where to find the full version of "Be Somebody or be Somebody's Fool" (the movie that this is from)?

3. Travis Pastrana Double Backflip X-Games XII
Absolutely insane. A few years ago, a single backflip on a dirtbike was considered impossible, but now Pastrana has raised the bar again.

4. Sadness Trailer (Wii)
OK, I know this is a few months old, but I first saw it this past week. Although this doesn't contain any gameplay footage, it hooks me into wanting to know more.

5. Mel-O-Drama
On the Daily Show, Jon Stewart and crew use footage from Mel Gibson's movies to illustrate fake news stories about him after seeing real news sources do it for his drunk driving incident.

I hope you've enjoyed this week's videos. Remember to post a link in the comments back to your own YouTube Tuesday post and I'll put it in here!
