Super Bowl Potato: YouTube’s Top Favorited Video of the Day

It’s always interesting to see which video was selected by the YouTube user community as the Top Favorited one of the day.  You never know what you’re going to get, and they’re usually meme inspired.  Today’s Top Favorited selection is both odd and curiously entertaining, because it features a potato running from a giant robot spider.  There’s no rhyme or reason for its success, and it is kind of a pointless video, but there’s something about it that has compelled over 6,000 YT users to “Like” it.  I mean sh*t, I’m f*cking posting an article about it, so somehow it worked its magic on me.

I can’t quite figure out why though.  It’s just an animated potato running from a spider robot set to some music that you’d expect to hear in an 8-bit video game.  The creators of the video did warn me that watching it too many times could be dangerous, and I think they’re right, because I can’t stop seeing and hearing this little spud in my head.  I dare you to check it out for yourself after the break!  You’ve been cursed by the Super Bowl potato…
