When it was made in 1985, this video was the bomb. Everybody was talking about it: my friends, my grandma, my daddy, the mailman...everybody. Believe it or not, readers under twenty-five, at one point Micheal Jackson was bigger than American Idol, Barack Obama and the Internet combined.
This video was one of the reasons.
Be on the lookout for a cameo by me as one of the ghouls.
In the videos below, you will see Philadelphia Phillies fans jumping on a moving fire truck, tearing down signs, flipping a car and many fans flipping the bird.
Now, I have to ask, why do we celebrate sports victories this way? Come on! Go out, drink responsibly, do a group prayer and be home in bed by 8:00 P.M. Is that so hard? Hello? Hello? Hello?
RIDING THE FIRE TRUCK
TEARING DOWN SIGNS
This is Panettiere's official video from Hollywood Records.
How many actors or actresses have may the transition from acting to singing and done it well? Jennifer Lopez? Jennifer Love Hewitt? Brandy? David Hasselhoff?
This is your opportunity to form an opinion of yet another wanna-be singer.
In the video produced by ITN, the former World's Fattest Man was married to his longtime girlfriend in northern Mexico.
Message to all basement dwelling geeks, if this guy can do it, you can do it. His wife is not bad looking at all. Watch the video and judge for yourself.
There is hope for a blogger.
Stalkers of the world now rejoice as Google has created a portable app that suits their needs.
Seriously, if you are a fan of Google Earth and have an I-Phone, this is a great application. You can find restaurants, graveyards, your high school and many many other sites.
It's free at the iTunes app store.
Don't make the mistake of engaging some of these people. Now, these nut cases feel empowered and now feel like they have a stake your videos. Don't give the negative commenter power if you have a blog or YouTube video.
Some of you reading this will have popular blogs with millions of pageviews (I hope) and taking in cash from advertising. Inevitably, some of your readers of your blog will comment about how you've changed, you've sold out or once you were an angel now you sleep with the devils. In fact, the only thing that has changed is that you're making money when once you wasn't.
You must deal with this drama. Therefore, here are some steps to lessen the impact of the negative comments.
1. Don't allow comments.
2. Erase the negative comment immediately.
3. Only leave an e-mail address. This will force the loser to take extra steps to contact you plus somebody with constructive criticism or praise or a serious question can contact you. Most losers don't take the extra steps.
4. Turn on your blog's/youtube page comment moderation feature. Once the loser sees that he has to be approved before the comment goes live, he'll leave you alone.
5. Post constructive criticism and leave all garbage comments alone. This will show your viewers/readers that you can take the good with the bad.
So, when you get your world famous blog, you are going to have to deal with world famous losers. It goes with the territory. Good luck and good blogging.

Is Natalie happy about this opportunity for free publicity? Is she thrilled to be listed with Britney Spears? Is she excited about the new viewers she will no doubt get from people who follow Attack of the Show?
Of course not.
In the video below she details her distaste for the list with emotion.
In ER's 15 years, many stars have come and gone, such as George Clooney, Juliana Marguiles, Ving Rhames, Gloria Reuben, Kirsten Durst, John Stamos, most of the cast of CSI including Jorja Fox, Marq Helgenberger and George Eads, Omar Epps (who now plays a doctor on Fox's House), Sally Field, Don Cheadle and a gazillion other rich actors.
In the video below, Maura Tierney, who played Dr. Abby Lockhart, current wife of Dr. Luka Kovac and former lover of Dr. John Carter, plays her role for the last time.
This is the entire episode courtesy of Fancast.
Naturally, I post this because ER is one of my favorite shows of all time. I've been watching since the first season in 1994.
Yeah, I'm that old.
In the video posted by Diagonal View, a storm chaser learns what it feels like to be chased.
You may be were wondering, like I did, if storm chaser is an actual job or it a bunch of thrill seekers with cameras.
Well, it is a job. Here is an article at Popular Mechanics with interviews with several storm chasers.
Eye of the Internet Storm
A 13 year-old, according to WLWT- Cincinnati, found the tongue and his agent contacted WLWT. I guess. I don't how these things make the news. Don't get it twisted, I'm glad they do.
Was it a human tongue or an animal tongue? For some reason, it's going to take the Hamilton County Coroner three days to find out. Is he that behind is his work?
Well, Ashley Qualls paid cash for a $250,000 house, is her mother's boss and make millions from her website. Oh, and she's only 18.
Qualls, creator of whateverlife.com, originally created MySpace layouts or backgrounds and uploaded them to her site for people to download for free. The site was principally aimed at teenagers.
As of October 22, 2008, whateverlife.com , receives over 7 million visitors daily and 60 million page views a month. Almost as much as VlogHog. Minus a million or so visitors.
The video below, produced by Yahoo's People of the Web, goes into more detail of the life of the MySpace millionaire.
Has a lot of work to do.
Ah, but I'm not the only man on the Earth. A youth minister claims that a Cheeto he found is the spitting image of Jesus Christ. He calls it... Why spoil the surprise of the video?
The video was posted to LiveLeak by komakazzi.
Kimbo Slice is a big mean mixed martial arts fighter who also battled in street fights which were available to be viewed on the Internet. Kimbo Slice is suppose to be the toughest mixed martial artists on the block.
In the video below, David Blaine attempts to take two punches in the stomach from Kimbo Slice.
Is that a trick? Can't he make the Statue of Liberty disappear, catch a live bullet, or walk on water or something?
Blaine is starting to get lame. Although, it is kinda funny seeing him get punched. But he ain't a comedian.
Plus, stick around because he tries to really catch a bullet. Shows me right.
Thanks to b0redj0rd over at LiveLeak for posting this video.
You Can Do Magic
Well, it turns out that the protest were against Scientology and Holmes is a Scientologist. Oh.
In the video posted by ITN at YouTube it shows the protesters and apparently it's Halloween in New York.
How does one protest? When do you find time? Who makes the signs?
Protester: Hey, we're all going to protest Katie Holmes down on Broadway. You coming?
Wanna-Be: The porn star?
Protester: No, that's John Holmes.
Wanna-Be: I mean the blond headed girl.
Protester: That's Katie Morgan. I'm talking about Katie Holmes the girl married to Tom Cruise.
Wanna-Be: Then her name would be Katie Cruise. Right?
Protester: Look, she's a Scientologist!!!
Wanna-Be: She's a Scientologist and...?
Protester: Haven't you heard about the things that they do?
Wanna-Be: Science and stuff?
Protester: It's a cult. The propaganda is stifling. They don't pay taxes for God's sake. They trampled all over free speech rights of anyone who dares criticize...
Wanna-Be: Batman Begins!
Wanna-Be: She was the hoochie in Batman Begins!
Protester: Yeaaah. So, do you want to go the protest or not?
Wanna-Be: What? Batman Begins was the shit, son.
Protester: My sister coming.
Wanna-Be: Let's roll.
The people at Howcast have made a video that details how to sell-out.
Hey, mass appeal pays the bills, baby. Unless everybody who visits here donates ten dollars a month, be on the look for more mainstream videos at VlogHog.
In the video below, a bus leaps over a curb and rams into several cars. Video posted by LiveLeaker bellava at LiveLeak.
This is raw surveillance of an accident that occurred in September 2008.
Vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden (D) has made more gaffes this political season than Obama, McCain and Palin combined.
It doesn't make him a bad person or unelectable (unless you're a Republican) but it is funny as hell.
In the video below, Joe Biden forgets how to count.
I use to make several slide show videos, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Kim Kardashian, Adriana Lima and several others have been the subject of many VlogHog productions.
Why? Promotion of my blog. You can post your blog url onto a YouTube video and maybe someone will visit it.
To my surprise, when I originally posted Jessica Simpson Up Close, it made it to the YouTube front page. Don't ask me why. I really really don't know. The most views I was expecting was about 5000.
That was when I had an account at YouTube under the name VlogHog. Then it got cancelled. Now, I have an account under the name VlogHog1. Very clever, huh? I knew that college degree would pay off.
Before being wiped out at YouTube, Jessica Simpson Up Close got over 700,000 views. That's 700,000 views of the name VlogHog and some promotion of the blog. Yeah, more than likely the viewers were staring at Simpson's breasts but, hey, a blogger can dream.
The song in the video is called "Bumper Music" and is composed by me. Really.
Oh, don't break copyright laws. Seriously.
And Jessica Simpson does not endorse VlogHog.
Plus, God Bless America
Posted at LiveLeaker bellava, it shows how you must always be alert for others who drive.
This video was caught on a surveillance camera on Oct. 13, 2008 according to bellava.
Be careful out there
ABC NEWS reports on the plight of Manuel Uribe, who use to weigh over 1200 pounds, and his quest to lose over 400 more pounds.
Uribe also has a goal of marrying his girlfriend. His girlfriend? Hey, I didn't know Guinness Book World Record holders had groupies?
If that's the case, I'm entering the Guinness Book with the World's Longest Delinquent Loan. Do a story on that ABC News..
Thanks to beck64 for posting this video at LiveLeak. Of course, Stewart doesn't really become a cannibal but what she actually does with the infants in this video is much much more weird. And, as usual, the audience of her show cheers her on.
Memo to The Martha Stewart Show future audiences, she don't give away cars like Oprah.
Posted at YouTube by GuinnessWorldRecords, Jimmy Skold of Sweden will try to swallow the most sausages in one minute for your pleasure or his or for a world record or for money, I guess.
Jimmy Skold had a dream. He wanted to swallow the most sausages in one minute. People laughed at him. People mocked him. People thought he was crazy. Skold ignored them and continued to pursue his dream.
He practiced, he endured, and he finally got his opportunity to achieve his goal.
We all can take a lesson from Jimmy Skold.
It's too easy
On this broadcast, a weatherman from WCCO, a CBS affliate in Minnesota, talks about his personal life a little too much.
Now, is it weatherman, weatherperson or meteorologist? The staff at VlogHog does not want to offend anyone, unless it results in a huge spike in web traffic and then we'll apologize later.
Pictured: Jackie Guerrido a weather person
The producers at Diagonal View at YouTube have posted this video of the odd cat. No hoax. No bull. A kitten with two faces.
According to the video, both mouths meow at the same time. Hmmmm. I'm going need more evidence out there that it's not the end times.
In this report, a Republican media consultant is angry that the photo isn't retouched and complains that a Barack Obama (D) Newsweek cover makes him look angelic.
Now, the stock market has dropped over 3000 points in the last month, 401k's are losing double digit values, jobs are being slashed, the American tax payer is being asked to pay 700 billion dollars to bailout Wall Street and someone at Fox News suggests to do a story on a Sarah Palin Newsweek cover and it get the thumbs up?
Palin seems pretty tough to me and whatever the cover shows, I think she can handle it.
I link. You watch.
But, in real life, most cops are pretty smart. Not that they're dealing with a lot of Bill Gates' out there. Still, the officer in this video had to think quick or he would be dead now.
Watch as a semi-truck goes out of control and towards this officer in this video posted by d at LiveLeak. (That's the person LiveLeak username...d.)
This video shows her first meeting with Mark Ballas, her dancing partner as they practice the Foxtrot. During this video, Kardashian mentions that she is best known for being a reality tv star. Now, I don't think she is best known for being a reality tv star unless the reality show she was talking about was the sex tape she made.
Also, Kardashian mentions that for some reason she is unbalanced. For some reason? Hmmmmm. I wonder what could be throwing her balance? For the life of me, I can't figure it out?
Well, she'll be missed by the VlogHog staff. No pun intended.
I would meet with her without pre-conditions.
Despite all the attention and criticism of Sarah Palin (R) some warranted and most not, Joe Biden(D) is the one making the most gaffes on the campaign trail. IVHO. (In VlogHog's Humble Opinion)
But, you get the make the call on which of the vice-presidential candidate makes the better case for the top of their tickets.
Below is the entire debate between Palin and Biden. Uncut. Uncensored. No added text. No babbling before and after commentary. No VlogHog opinions.
C-Span provides this video.
The three men in this video obviously have less money than me and that's saying something, bra.
Now, if you have followed VlogHog for the last year and a half, you may have noticed that I link to videos of a lot of wanna-be thieves. Why? In this digital age and stuff I ask why do people try to steal at places where there are tons of cameras? Plus, failed robberies are funny.

Hey, if you need a couple of bucks, I'll loan it to you.
