Hello, friends! This week, we're going to play a fun little game I like to call "Connect the Dots"! The idea is, I'll start with a popular video, find the first poster (at the time of writing) and post one of their videos, then find the first poster on that video and post one of their videos and so on and so forth as we continue further and further down the rabbit hole until I either find the best video on YouTube, or until I get bored or until I get too drunk to coherently interact with reality!

We here at Something Awful present to you AwfulVision™, our own patented service dedicated to showcasing a wide selection of unpopular videos that apparently must be good! Welcome to Web 3.9.
