Yet an alternative YouTube video has made its way into a tv commercial, and quite without problems I might add. BMW popularized the fad with its use of a home video depicting two ecstatic children who just received what’s apparently the largest gift ever. The advertisement got its point across, equating the pure joy of the kids with the thrill of BMW possession. Now AIG, a financial facilities agency, has released a new commercial of a cute and very amusing laughing baby that was a hit on YouTube. “Laughter can add eight years to your life.

So live longer, retire more suitable. Never outlive your money,” the commercial broadcasts.

BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow writes that “in a Google search of five keywords or terms representing the end five news memories of 2007” blogs are ranking higher than the New York Times site, and Wikipedia beats both.
