how could they vote for that loser who doesn't shave?!

Considering I'm reviewing the hotly anticipated (at least by these young ladies) debut album from American Idol runner-up David Archuleta this week, I thought I'd share with you fine people my current favorite YouTube clip—"Our Reaction When David A. Lost". An honest-to-god legit recording of some junior high girls that they themselves taped and put online for the world to see and comment on.

As hilarious as this is (just brush off that momentary twinge of conscience at whether you're a bad person for literally laughing at a crying little girl), it made me think about how different it must be growing up now, with the Internet so much more prevalent. I can't imagine something like YouTube being a force when I was that emotional over my previous obsessive loves (oh, what up N' Sync). 

I really don't think they need to worry that much though. As long as Archie's got fans like them in his pocket, he'll be fine for quite some time. 

(Okay, but seriously, favorite moment list in the comments?? Mine is a tie between the girl pointing when the main chick literally loses her shit and collapses to the ground, because clearly this is a bit beyond what she was expecting, and the part when the mom comes in and points out: "David Archuleta wasn't even crying!" Oh mom. Don't attempt to apply your so-called "logic" here.)
