YouTube right now! "Pinsanity"
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Pinterest will be three this year, but some people still don’t get what the image-sharing network is all about. In Comediva’s latest video, the all-female troupe takes this ignorance to its most literal extreme.
In “Pinsanity,” the comedians envision the Pinterest interface as a literal corkboard with thumbtacks. Comedian Deborah S. Craig plays the role of a pin-crazy fashionista, pilfering real-world products, pets, and eventually, people to her bulletin board in a blood-thirsty attempt to curate items on Pinterest.
“You can repin,” Craig smiles sweetly to a victim after stealing her cupcake.
“I think, now, I understand what Pinterest is. Maybe. Perhaps. Probably not,” bigvirgotube wrote.
The video does pose an interesting question: How absurd, unnecessary, and, likely illegal would social-network activities be if transferred to the real world?
“I'd love to see you take on Klout next,” dieselbt wrote.
