    That's pretty funny. What's it got to do with the IE 8.1 thing?

    I think maybe they have, they're just trying to pretend that they're not phased by it (BUT THEY ARE!!)

    I'd never heard of it and now that I have, I still think it's pretty funny, the vid, and its apparently devoted viral propagators, great stuff. But I fail to see what it has to do with IE 8.1 - though I suppose that's the point. And at least you got the date right.

    Happy April Fools to All!
