Gotta Love the Internet

Some of you who are more "hip with the kids" may have already seen this (a couple of years ago, actually). It just makes me laugh every time I see it (yes, I am a bit easily amused), in part because it is the perfect example of the bizarreness, and wonderful-ness, of the internet. Why in the world would such a thing exist? Who would spend that much time making such a thing? (And yet, I'm glad they did...)

What's your favorite example of an internet item (a flash video, a mashup, or whatever) that is wonderful for its mere existence?

Last holiday season, Office Max came up with a site called "Elf Yourself." I first heard of it from my son, who "elfed" his family, including the baby who was six months old at the time. I later "elfed" all sorts of people, including family, friends, even some ELI folks!

Unfortunately, the site was taken down after the holidays (hope they put it up again this year), but I checked You Tube, and sure enough, there are many videos of the "elves" various people made. Here's one of them:
