Do you ever get that feeling that you just have to watch a YouTube video?
YouTubeosis is a common complaint, compelling the sufferer to watch a selection of the latest YouTube clips with urgency. It is not until the sufferer has has their fill of animals acting human, babies looking cute and grown men doing utterly stupid things, that they can comfortably get on with their life.
Imagine the stress and upset that would be felt should an attack of YouTubeosis strike when there is no device around to administer the treatment? Sufferers will usually ensure that such a device is available, but what if a small child had decided to hide their PC power button? What if someone had used the Laptop as a dinner tray and was busy tucking into a Sunday roast? What if that lovely Tablet device was being used as a digital photo frame and had been nailed to the wall? If only there was another way to administer a healthy dose of YouTube…
Well, now there is! The Xbox360, commonly found underneath the largest TV in the house, can now give access to YouTube clips via a handy App. Users are able to view the currently trending clips, their favorite videos and even control the App with voice or gesture using the Kinect unit (the moving, black thing usually found above the largest TV in the house).
So, the next time that YouTubeosis raises its ugly head and you find yourself needing to watch cars driving backwards, buildings collapsing and people trying to sing, forget hunting around for power cables and wireless mice. Instead, head towards the largest TV in the house. Once there, remove any obstructions, such as groups of children waving controllers, and shout at the top of your voice “Xbox! YouTube!”. Then sit back, watch videos and wait for the attack to pass.
