Video of the Day: At 571 Hours, the Longest Video on YouTube

More

I'm not sure there's much to say about this video. I'm not even sure what, exactly, it's showing. But it is a video -- see all of those moving images pieced together? The simply named "The Longest Video on YouTube" is MoldytoasterMedia's attempt to set -- and maintain -- a record in an age where millions of us are constantly uploading new content to the Web. Check out the description, in which viewers are challenged to create and post something longer. Will you accept?

A TV network for the Web, MoldytoasterMedia is a popular YouTube user, with more than 17,000 subscribers and 900-plus videos posted over the past two years. "The content is designed for a new audience," is how MoldytoasterMedia explains itself via YouTube Channel. "This audience, like television, expects dependability and quality, but unlike television, wants a more gritty, edgy, highly-targeted and in-depth form of entertainment. We deliver technology, comedy, religion, art, home repair and more, all with the familiar faces you all know with years of experience."At 571 hours, there's room for all of that -- and so much more -- in just one video. Why build a whole Channel?
