"The Fabulous Bus Ride." Not to be out-dumbed by the "Chick Bank Robber," a man stole his ex-employer's bus, took it for a joyride, and posted the footage in a YouTube titled "The Fabulous Bus Ride" for all to enjoy -- including the cops.
Kimye proposal bust. Taking a turn for the YouTube meta, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sued YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for allegedly posting a video of their proposal online to MixBit, his new video app venture, as a promotional stunt. Since it involved MixBit, at least the legal snafu won't give Hurley the YouTube birthday blues.
Soulja Boy's lies. Celebrities aren't immune from legal trouble for YouTube snafus. Soulja Boy was sued for defamation after he lied about a car crash in a YouTube video.
"Datbull 4 Life." Aspiring celebrities get into YouTube legal trouble, too. Take it from Jay Harris, an aspiring college athlete. Michigan State University yanked the incoming freshman's cushy football scholarship because of his YouTube rap video titled "Datbull 4 Life," which prominently featured weed and profanity.
Poor "Fountain Lady." At the other end of the spectrum are the people desperately trying to avoid fame (or infamy...). Mall employees posted a YouTube video of a woman who fell into an indoor fountain while texting-and-walking. The embarrassed "Fountain Lady" then threatened to sue the mall after the video went viral, garnering nearly 2 million views.
Happy Birthday, YouTube! Here's to many more years of legally peculiar video gems.
