The best video blog ever done (in my estimation) concluded its run nearly two years ago. "the show with zefrank" was the brainchild of Ze (short for Hosea) Frank and ran for exactly one year, ending March 16, 2007. Prior to the show's launch Frank had already won the 2002 Webby for best personal website and been featured in Time Magazine.
His short clips presented his unique takes on media as well as current events. And they were laced with some of the most off-the-wall and flat out funniest bits ever presented online. Check out "Fingers in Food" for a, um, taste.
Somewhat amazingly, two years later people are still emailing me "the show" telling me, "You just HAVE to check out this clip!!"
Below is one of my favorites, an almost exhaustingly drawn out metaphor that still feels fresh.
(P.S. Frank landed Go Daddy as a video sponsor in 2006, less than a year after broadband usage became widely monitored, much less internet video viewership. Your welcome, Hulu.
