Retro: The first video ever posted to YouTube!
July 8th, 2011 under Retro. [ Comments: none ]

I have always wondered what was the first video that was ever posted on YouTube and now thanks to OMG Facts I know and you can know too. Here is what co-founder Jawed Karim said with it, “The first video on YouTube, uploaded at 8:27PM on Saturday April 23rd, 2005. The video was shot by Yakov Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo.”
It is amazing how far YouTube has come in just six years. Especially after watching that video that was only :18 long. In Hebrew 18 is chai which means life and it is amazing the video was that length because YouTube has definitely taken on a life of its own.


Retro: The first McDonalds ad!!!
December 28th, 2010 under Ads, Fast Food, Retro. [ Comments: none ]

For some reason the first McDonalds ad was on the front of page of YouTube, so I had to check it out. What I saw from the ad that made its debut on June 27, 1962 shocked me. Seriously it is amazing that the fast food restaurant is as huge as it is after that ad. I even think that that version of Ronald McDonald is scarier than the newest version of the Burger King King and I never that would be possible.


Retro: Family Ties Season 3 Bloopers
December 29th, 2009 under Retro. [ Comments: none ]

It is a painfully slow day today, so I decided to post this gag reel from the third season of Family Tie. I hope they made you smile as much as it did me. Watching these bloopers reminded me of what an awesome show Family Ties was, too bad they don’t make them like this show anymore.


Retro: Most Haunted…Mary Loves Dick
September 3rd, 2008 under Retro, Travel Channel. [ Comments: none ]

One of my guilty pleasure shows is Most Haunted that airs here in The States on the Travel Channel, but one of the things that I hated about the show is David Acorah. There is something about him that seemed so fake when he would get possessed by one of the spirits at the places that they were investigating. So today when I saw this video of him tapping into the spirit saying Mary Loves Dick and the whole crew losing it as soon as they were done with their segment was something I had to share with y’all. Seriously how classic was it what the spirits were telling him to say!
While it is obvious this show is fake, what I love about Most Haunted are the locations that they go to. Some of them have been around for over 1,000 years and others have been places that royalty stayed at like King Henry VIII. It is worth watching just for all the architecture from centuries past!


Retro: John Stamos in Never Too Young To Die!
June 20th, 2008 under Full House, John Stamos, Retro. [ Comments: 2 ]

The New Beverly Cinema is showing Never Too Young to Die with John Stamos, Vanity and Gene Simmons tomorrow at midnight. This cinematic gem is from 1986, but I think the hair gave that way!
After seeing the trailer, I want to know how I missed this movie which I am sure John Stamos wish went away forever like that hairstyle!!!
Side note…I liked John Stamos better with that do than his current one but I do think he does get better with age!!!
