There are many useful things to be found on YouTube. Argument-winning clips of Three Times One Minus One, for instance (provided you're having an argument about TTOMO, that is). Scientology instructional videos, complete with Unsolved-Mysteries-worthy reenactments of the emotional engram theory (skip to the end). And, of course, many many clips of unlikely things in blenders. Then there's this: a YouTube video debunking a different YouTube video by an adorably French director with an affinity for camera tricks, feet, and Rubik's Cubes.

I don't know why, but I find this video's use of arrows, voiceover analysis, and endless playback of Michel Gondry's feet to be oddly soothing. Probably because for once it's a viral video that doesn't involve an arbitrary Color Me Badd parody.
