Video is undoubtedly killing television, and with TV's demise comes the death of serveral television stars - who are all vulnerable to their latest escapades being covered by the various tabloid websites popular on the Internet. While images have been the bain of Celebrities for centuries, video has quickly made it all the more embarassing for celebrity to be quoted saying something ignorant or stupid. While an image could capture an embarassing moment, video allows everyone to relive it over and over and over again. Even worse is that video prevents celebrities from rebutting claims or falsifying the evidence, because everyone can see the video for themselves and make a judgement on what actually happened. Granted that video, much like any other medium, can be edited to appeal to a particular agenda - it's a lot more difficult, and even in its edited form still gives off a better impresion of what actually happened (something which can never truly be hidden).

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.
