    I would have loved to see when they told the kids at the playground, .. if they did.

    They should have told them they got punked.

    Sorry about that. I ran the posted video several times to make sure the vid link took. Never had a problem getting it to play w/o a glitch.

    Time to upgrade from your 286 architecture computer, theogt ... :laugh2: [ducks and runs] ... I kid. I kid.

    theogt's not the only one... It took almost 15 mins to watch it. It was freezing every other minute.

    But I persevered...and it was a good watch... eventually. lol

    I guess I got lucky. It loaded right up for me. Funny video.

    Reminded me somewhat of the Jewel karaoke skit. She dressed up as a frumpy business woman and she played a reluctant karaoke singer. Natrually when finally got on stage and sang she wowed the audience.

    Any suggestions as to how YouTube vids can be posted and watched more effectively here, or is it just a hit 'n' miss proposition with YT? Sorry about the problems watching the video, for anyone experiencing issues.

    I'm willing to blame it on my connection and youtube more than anything you could've done. I appreciate you posting it cuz it was funny.


    Like WV, I wish they would've shown people's reactions after they revealed his identity.

    That was on Funny or Die, right? I saw that vid, too. What cracked me up was they said she sounded better than Jewel. lol

    Saw that, too ... some saying that "Jewel Incognito" was better than Jewel, as herself, was actually kind of charming, IMO ... rooting for the first seen and heard "Plain Jane" performer who wowed them out of nowhere.

    Really enjoyed that particular Funny or Die Jewel video and the premise behind it. I think it's pretty cool to get to see real people who are honestly surprised by something/ someone they never see coming.

    Great video. That was a quality NBA walk @2:25... He took like 6 steps on the way to the basket without dribbling. :laugh1:

    "Uncle Drew" can get away with that. He's an old timer who worked his way into the good graces of the assembled fans. Now, if everyone knew it was Kyrie Irving ... HE get's called out, amateur pick-up game or not ... lol. ;)

    Pro tip - if a video on youtube is stuttering, pause it, wait a few minutes (it buffers the video while paused) and then hit play.

    Not really a pro tip, but in any event, this doesn't work sometimes because they can set videos such that if they're paused it automatically stops downloading altogether. I wish there was an alternative to Youtube, as their site is rage inducing.

    You must be special then, because every youtube video I've ever watched does this. You can see the gray progress bar moving while it's paused. There is no setting when uploading a video to not allow this, either.
