"Thank You Hater"- Trolling the trolls.:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz2jbCJXkpA

Catchy tune, funny cause it's true, and some good celebrity cameos.

Additional comedy can be found in the completely unironic attempts to troll the video itself, which are frankly indistinguishable from the ironic ones, which makes you think that possibly people defending the video are themselves trolling by contributing to the irony...

Basically, this video is virtually untrollable because it's impossible to tell what is a genuine troll and what is a piss-take (of course, the difference between that is arguable philisophical in the first place).

Hi.
Did that video just successfully defeat trolling?

What.

Because I could not stop for death
Are you kidding!? Trolls are fantastic! And playing with them is even MORE fantastic! Antagonize a troll or argue with them and watch your video view count go up! Seriously! They;re like a disease that makes you skinny and pretty! They're like a a series of painful sneezes that clears out your sinuses! Trolls wrack up hits almost more than fans do! To all the sad fucks out there with no life and spew hatred... I raise my glass to you all. Thanks for making the videos you hate a total success! :D

Pretty much summed it up right there, yep.

This hat doesn't fit!
There is a logic to that when you factor in the fact that you can monetize your videos based on viewcount.

True that.

And besides, Trolls are the reason that things like Friday and Boxxy get popular. And the reason why Chris Chan was around for so long.

Just awesome like that
I thought "Friday" got popular because half the people that watched it thought it was So Bad, It's Good and the other half were middle school girls.

Insert witty and clever quip here.

Why would I write that?
[up]If by "half" you mean "90%" then yes.
Remember! Hyperbole is an exaggeration made for comedic effect, and shouldn't be taken literally!

[up]But that would total up to 180%.

Hi.
This is Friday we're talking about, do you really expect it to operate under any kind of logic?

Yes, I expect it to operate under 15-year-old girl logic.

Hi.
Like I said, do you actually expect it to fall under any actual kind of logic?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
