YouTube Hacked...Sort Of
Thursday evening as YouTube added new features to its site, replaced the usual homepage contents with just its logo and the phrase, "All your video are belong to us" which, for a while, had people wondering if the site had, indeed, been hacked. As it turned out, that was not the case as a second message appeared a while later saying, "No, we haven't been hacked. Get a sense of humor."
Ever so insightfully intelligent, YouTube spokeswoman Julie Supan said of the stunt, "This is what the engineers do, they have fun with our users. They're all cracking up right now. You have to remember who are fan base is. They don't want some dry message." Julie, you are so right. That's why we have the Bloglines plumber too. It'd be nice if more companies did things like this. It shows the humanity behind a corporation and that an entity such as a corporation can, and should be allowed to, have fun just like normal people do. Thanks to Owen for the screen shot.
