What YouTube Was Made For

Dear Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade,

Why did it take you so long to bring Garth Marenghi and Dean Learner to life? Why don't you fuck Avalon productions off and make it all yourself? No excuses. Just look at this vid.

Many thanks

Seriously though, take a look at Dario Russo and his mates' Italian Spiderman. Granted the world doesn't exactly need another student movie pastiche/parody, and I was even in two minds about posting it. BUT. Italian Spiderman isn't just the film. It's a (hilarious) story about the film, it's producers, cast, crew, history. By pulling together MySpace, YouTube and the good old fashioned t'interweb, Italian Spiderman "authenticates" and augments it's narrative right across the winky-wanky Web 2.0 world.

And you thought YouTube was just Jackass in purgatory, didn't you.
