    I have to say that with the advent of youtube I have come to the conclusion that just about anything that has ever been filmed is available to be viewed on this site. It is incredible to see what has been loaded up there.

    the inspiration of this thread may precede a lot of you members....the other day I was thinking about all the strange, weird, awful and tacky sitcoms that used to populate TV. OK..nothing has really changed in that regard. But...back in the '60's...before the advent of the 1 hour variety show which catapulted the Smothers Brothers into national fame...they had a very strange sitcom that lasted 1 season. That show featured Tommy as an apprentice angel and Dick as his beleaguered brother. I was probably about 10 years old or so when I watched it.

    So...while walking the dog the other day....I couldn't get the stoooopid theme song out of my head...but of course...47 or so years later...it was kinda hard to remember the stooopid lyrics..althought for some reason I could remember the actual tune...the melody...perfectly. For your dining and dancing pleasure, I present the original Smothers Brothers sitcom theme song...and ask you all to share the strangest youtube video you have ever actually searched for ("Treeman, the Angriest Guitar player in the world" doesn't count folks!)



    Edit.....to make sure we take full advantage of the weirdness that is out there...let's please add to this thread to include all of those youtube videos that you've found by accident while searching for something else.

    Well, I found this one today. I didn't search for it exactly, but stumbled onto it somehow. It's pretty strange to me. (It also clears up some questions. After seeing this, I think the reason learning and playing guitar is sometimes difficult for us is because we humans only have two hands, instead of however many... uh... pods.) LOTS of barre chords here!

    To clarify my OP...I certainly think that the videos we find by accident...while searching for something else...not only qualfies for this thread...but actually represents the majority of those videos that will wind up here as well. Let's make sure to modify this thread to include the strangest videos you've actually searched for...or unintentionally found while looking for something else.

    I mentioned before in another thread that for the longest time I avoided YouTube at all costs. I never really knew why; I was just convinced that 'it wasn't for me'. But after going to the site so much in the last year or two (not sure when I started going there), I now think that it's great! The historical music tracks I post, the factory tours, rig rundowns (!), and the live gigs from all over the world I watch... I don't know what I was thinking! Talk about narrow-minded. (And that's to say nothing of all the other subjects I go to YT for now. Travel, Architecture, recipes. And historic drag races? HOLY MOSES! OCIR, Indy, Texas Motorplex, Santa Pod, Ocala Florida...)

    I've also learned that you can find almost anything on YT. Almost.

    Strange to some, this is one of the few good memories I have from my childhood. Old Cal Worthington commercials from California, thanks to YouTube.

    I've seen many strange things on YouTube. This one takes the cake, so far.

    2 Girls 1 Cup. Everybody was cracking up about it at work, but wouldn't say what it was about. I didn't find it on youtube. Somebody emailed it to me right after that. Let's just say, that's SOOOOOO not what I expected to go down.

    You asked for it, brother...



    Courtesy of my daughter. They did the song/dance at her pre-school, so she was obsessed with it for a short time. I'll spare you links to the possibly stranger versions from the Latin American kids shows.
