Internet things that get ruined

The joys of the Internet. From the very early days of patiently waiting to download a single image that may or may not contain hardcore porn (the thumbnails were too small to tell) to the modern era of simultaneously viewing 10 different hardcore porn videos across multiple tabs and webpages, while torrenting DVD rips of hardcore porn. Although 95% of the Internet is made of hardcore porn, there are some things on the Internet that are not hardcore porn.

Of the 5% of things that aren't hardcore porn, there are some things that are actually funny, either intentionally or otherwise. This is always very welcome, as sometimes it is possible to get fed up of hardcore porn. Unfortunately, in some cases, things that were funny, or interesting or both, get distorted by later attempts from that same person to somehow capitalise on that funniness, or in other cases the funny thing is hijacked by someone else and made not funny anymore. It is at this point that Internet things get ruined. Then it's back to the hardcore porn. Below are some examples of things that were good but then were subsequently killed.

The Insanity Test

This did the rounds in the early 2000's and was very funny. If you like you can try it now, and see if you are able to resist laughing.

Unfortunately this was ruined forever when the Crazy Frog ringtone came into being. This was followed by a string of terrible songs and videos. The Crazy frog in question holds the dubious honour of not only ruining a very funny Internet viral forevermore, but also tarnishing the good name of Axel F. Also, whoever designed the frog was a sicko, seeing fit to endow it with a penis. I'm sure frogs don't have visible genitalia. But then again, they don't ride invisible motorbikes either.

Numa Numa guy

The original numa numa video was a smash hit on Youtube. A fat guy throwing his hands up in the air to a camp eurodisco classic never gets old. I'm sure you've seen it. But if you're Amish or something visit the link below.

An insane amount of people have seen this video. However,Gary Brolsma, the most famous fat person since Notorious B.I.G., decided to follow it up with a truly insipid sequel. Unfortunately, when things are unintentionally funny, they can't generally be replicated and this is the root of the problem. The general public can't help but be cynical when people try to restage happy accidents. See the sequel below.

Leave Britney Alone

The last thing that the stumpy-legged lunatic Britney Spears needed after her mental breakdown was for a fan of hers to go on youtube and proceed to have their own mental breakdown. Androgynous Britney sycophant Chris Crocker rose to notoriety after the video below was published.

He has since gone on to publish dozens of other videos, none of which have have scaled the 'heights' of the deranged defence of Britney. He now wears his hair long, thinks he's something of a spokesperson for transgender people and has a tragically bad song available on iTunes.

Maddox

If you're gay like me then you have probably watched 'The Wizard of Oz'. There's a bit in the aformentioned film where the all-powerful wizard is revealed to be a timid little man in a booth. Maddox's similar unveiling can be seen below, where he rehashes old articles from his website and makes them more sanitised and less funny.
