  • Who is the celebrity of the summer?

       August 11, 2010

    It's been a golden summer for internet celebrities. We have the double rainbow guy, who spawned what is clearly one of the best songs of the year.

    In July we met Antoine Dodson, who saved his sister from a would be rapist and inspired another great song.

    Then, just this week Steve Slater burst onto the scene and slid down the emergency chute (two beers in hand) and into our hearts.

    Remember when summer used to be about big, expensive action movies and the stars were people like Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Will Smith? I think Internet celebrities have completely taken over for these guys. All that's missing is the popcorn!

    Who is the celebrity of the summer?
    Yosemitebear Mountain (Double Rainbow Guy)
    Antoine Dodson (Hide Your Kids, Hide Your Wife)
    Steven Slater (JetBlue Flight Attendant)

    I'm so surprised Steven Slater is winning this poll. Really? No love for Antoine Dodson or Double Rainbow? Is it just because Slater is the most recent?
