50 State Stereotypes in 2 Minutes - 5/27/11
On May 30th, I posted this little viral as a promo for "States of Confusion", which had just come out.

The darn thing caught on a bit, appearing on the front pages of Youtube, Break, Funnyordie, Collegehumor, MSN, LATimesBlog, Huffingtonpost, PerezHilton, Colbert Report, Tosh.0, Digg, Reddit, and others, combining for more than 2 million views! Thanks to everyone who watched and shared!
