The more garish thing is that online video affects not only celebrities, but real life ordinary people. People get turned into overnight stars through viral YouTube videos, but sometimes this can be much more of a curse in disguise. Take the incident of Star Wars Kid, by now you've most likely not only heard of him but have probably seen the variations of the original video. For those who have been living under the preverbial rock, Star Wars Kid is a Montreal (Quebec, Canada) teenager who was goofing around in his school's storage cabinet with a video camera - mimicking the moves of a Star Wars jedi (pretending he had a light sabre). Unfortunately for him, he forgot to remove the tape from the video camera and some of his evil peers decided to upload it to the Internet - in less then a few weeks, the video had spread and become a wild attraction. Variations of the video were made and edited, and the kid faced embarassment from the entire world - with people writing to him and even ridiculing him on the street. His parents sued the kids that leaked the video, and there has been much cafuffle on the sanity of the Montreal teenager. Many other cases like this have become common, with sex tapes, mms scandals and the likes becoming an all too familiar presence in our technological world.
