Youtube Doubler VIII: It's a Gusher!!!

I stopped making YoutubeDoublers a few months back. For one thing, my friend Robert's heart wasn't in it anymore, and if there wasn't anyone to compete against, the achievements seemed somehow hollow and unremarkable. For another, it seemed like every time I came up with a good one, Youtube would take down one of the videos that made it work. They even took down the instrumental loop of Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" which made it and the Unintelligible Empanada Truck the best YoutubeDoubler ever. The swines. You could watch that thing for ten minutes.

However, at the risk of seeing this Doubler similarly disabled in coming days or months, here's something inspired by my recent road trip along the Gulf Coast (click image to load):


Apologies to all with delicate sensibilities. RIP, I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry.

  1. Oh my god, unintelligible empanada truck is the best thing ever.

  2. Yeah, it's the industry standard. Plus, once you know Unintelligible Empanada Truck, it makes the last video in the Two and a Half Mensch piece a lot funnier.

  3. The rhythmic, almost musical quality of the truck is what makes it hypnotic.

    Also google is putting ads for johngaltgifts.com on your website, if you hadn't seen that. (Spoiler, everything sold on the website comes with a pre-written note explaining why the gift was returned to the giver and then has the john galt speech in it's entirety written in very fine print)

  6. I'll see if Robert's game. It's not a high-yield gimmick anymore. I think we did all we could do, and Youtube took down the best. Our hearts might not be in it anymore.

Et tu, Mr. Destructo? is a politics, sports and media blog whose purpose is to tell jokes or be really right about things. All of us have real jobs and don't need the hassle that telling jokes here might occasion, which is why some contributors find it more tasteful to pretend to be dead mass murderers.
