To cleanse the palate, have we ever featured a vid that’s gone mega-viral faster than this? It went up on YouTube literally yesterday; as I write this, it’s at 1.6 million views and the guy behind it has already been booked for the weekend edition of “Today.” It used to take three or four days, at a minimum, for someone to catapult from YouTube sensation to network TV hit. Maybe the Feiler Faster Thesis applies to viral videos too?

If this thing hits 20 million views, they ought to sign this guy and Simon Pegg for a comedy about twins separated at birth.
