PS3 fanboy video proves that 99.9% of Youtube users are stupid as hell

'Fanboy' is not a word I like to just throw around like water, idly affixing the label to everyone I meet. Online, the term fanboy, very much like emo, has become far too easily applied to people who truly don't deserve to be deemed as such. Rather, I feel the term should only be applied to people who fit a certain criteria, with the most tell-tale signs being pure ignorance, obvious insecurity and above all, abject stupidity. If you want a catch-all example of just what it should take to be called a fanboy, simply watch the video above, because the utter moron who made it is like every single fanboy merged into one like the big Critter at the end of Critters 2.  
 
Uploaded by Luxor Studios, a name made funnier by the fact that this has to be a twelve year old kid with emotional issues, we're told in the comments, "This Video was up on Seanluxor. Some stuf Xbox 360 360 fanbaws cant admit." Firstly, I don't know what, exactly, a 'fanbaw' is, but looking at other videos uploaded by Luxor, I see he also thinks the word 'trustible' is in the English language and not part of the bizzare Jupiter dialect that clearly flows from his mouth like a most chunky vomit.
 
As for the video itself, well, Jim is pressed as to where Jim can begin. One of the very first questions in the video is "Was PS3 Sale a flap?" Yes ... a flap. He asks if 'Sale' was a 'flap'. He also tells us that PS3 did 'beter' than Xbox 360 and Wii and that Blu-ray 'maby' more expensive than DVD. Of course, I won't spoil the fun of pointing out all the hilarious spelling errors for yourself. Collect the set, like bike reflectors in boxes of cereal. 
 
Otherwise, this video has to be one of the most pathetic, desperate, self-reassuring pieces of toad semen I've ever had the mispleasure of sitting down to watch. At over five minutes, you can tell this child really wants to convince himself that the PlayStation 3 is the greatest console ever made. Really, who gives a crap that some people are daring to say bad things about your favorite toy? If you're confident of its superiority, you shut the hell up, accept its faults, smile at its successes and go back to enjoying it. Defending a piece of plastic and wires to such a zealous degree is laughable. I've also noticed that the ones who throw the word fanboy around so casually, like this little pudstick, are often the worst examples of it. 
 
I hate Youtube users so damn much.
