3 videos to see, or avoid

The interwebs is on overdrive this week, full of great material for your consumption.

Some of these are clips you’ve probably already heard about or seen, but now I’ve put them all in once place for you to share, or avoid.

These are my three favorite videos of the week.

The first involves the good folks in Sioux City. Apparently, they built that city on rock and roll. I thought Starship had already done that, but I guess not.

Former KTIV reporter Melissa Lanzourakis is now with the city and put together a video that’s gone viral and brought some big reactions.

Bret Hayworth of the Sioux City Journal looks at the political impacts of the video.

Samantha Shuttle of the Sioux City Journal put together a couple of links as well.

And now, without further ado, Sioux City’s version of “We Built This City on Rock and Roll.”

The next video is painful television. It has been grouped together on the internet. This involves some TV stations duped or conned or just plain silly about inviting a self-proclaimed yo-yo champ on their air. Specifically morning and noon shows when all bets are off and any guest is usually welcome to fill the time.

This guy got some good play on Deadspin. Their headline of Yo-yo trickster fools every tv station everywhere is very accurate.

My last video pick of the week is from the boys at Funny or Die. It involves sportscasters and Hank Azaria. Hank is the voice of almost everyone on the Simpsons and knocks it out of the park on this bit. Even a few Godfather references and lots of good baseball stuff, too. Here now, the Legend of Jim Brockmire.
