Default What's 2204355 ?

http://timestranscript.canadaeast.co...rticle/1123156


What's 2204355? It's the latest unexplainable web trendPublished Tuesday July 6th, 2010

Google officials unsure about origin of popular search


TORONTO - It's not surprising that Google's latest list of hot searches includes queries about Canada Day, some recent movies, and the dreaded HST being launched in Ontario and British Columbia.

But what is 2204355 and why are so many people searching for it?
It appears to be one of those unexplainable viral sensations that appear out of nowhere and propagate across the web for no good reason.

If you visit Google, type in 2204355 and hit the I'm Feeling Lucky button you'll be presented with the odd video that is taking web users by storm.
In the confounding video, a smiling young man is double fisting two chicken drumsticks in front of an animated rainbow-coloured background.

He dances to a song that sounds like it would soundtrack an old Nintendo video game and occasionally takes bites of chicken.

Web sleuths have discovered the video of the dancing man appears to have been snipped from a bizarre Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial. As for who created the video and what it's supposed to mean - if anything at all - no one has a clue.

According to Google, the viral trend has been particularly popular in the Philippines, New Zealand, Ireland, Singapore, Australia, Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.

Toronto users seem to be particularly in on the joke, as the city ranks third in terms of where people have been searching for "2204355" the most.

If instead of insulting me you had paid some attention to my posting you could have cottonned on to the fact that you could upload videos that cause you a problerm on youtube to http://imageshack.us
To make amends therefore for your cheeky effrontery I demand that you attempt to upload your "telescope" video to imageshack forthwith

oh, you, like others, are confusing me with jessie joe, lol (sorry, jjo )

hey, you and others who were interested already showed gratitude back in 2009 when i passed along the vid using rapidshare (on either your's or other's suggestion, although you did say it took over an hour to download using dial up)

in case you've purged your inbox, here's my note:
"hope you got the digital version i sent you and any of the other folks that replied to the Lightfoot interview thread...i'd never used the rapidshare site before, not bad for free, enjoy John"

i may sometime try your latest tip re imageshack but with some other trail vid file...i clear my hard drives at the start of new edit jobs so imagine the old digitized stereo .mov of Telescope is now dust in the wind/trashcan...i still have a vcr set up so i just pull out the vhs tape when the viewing urge strikes...most of the GL Forward show can be viewed at the cbc archives, enjoy

cw, on my good days, i act like an 18 month old... at best

btw, nothing new, it was that stereo vhs i sent you back in 2002...not sure if you have figured out how to digitize your vhs collection or not yet, lol

sir john, i m testing that upload right now and it seems real easy and real cheap but video processing is taking a while for a 4 minute trial clip...i will spread the good word...i actually missed your tutorial, if there was one, on imageshack features

effrontery: i never heard that before...should be reserved for the lohan's out there
