The Most Epic Threads on the Interwebs
No matter how hard we bloggers try to create interesting, entertaining posts for the web, occasionally the communities that congregate on websites and forums band together, and in a moment of kisnet, collectively execute an idea that far exceeds anything we could orchestrate. From lyrics to lolcats, here are the most legendary comment threads on the internet.
- Reddit takes on the Beastie Boys - After Reddit user Loftoncreations started a thread including the word "Intergalactic," the community just couldn't help themselves from bursting into "song" with Beastie Boys' 'Intergalactic' and used the up and down arrows accordingly. Cue up the video and read along!
- Digg ponders if this is real life - On a thread for the infamous David After Dentist video and David's question "Is This Real Life?," the Digg community took the opportunity to recreate the classic anthem, 'Bohemian Rhapsody'... right down to the guitar solo and piano outro.
- Where 4chan, cats and Metallica collide - Mememachine imageboard 4chan harnessed their genius for cute when an image of a cat was posted with the opening line of Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' and recreated the lyrics alongside corresponding photos of cats and lolcats.
- Flickr Comments Gone Wild: 'Anger Is the Swiss Army Knife of Emotions' T-Shirt - I don't think I can explain it any better than Mat Honan does on Boing Boing Gadgets:
