I am your brother, your best friend forever

... but could you, like, keep it down a bit?

Introducing the next William Hung, the guy who in less than seven minutes became instantly more famous than you or me, now recognizable worldwide for his singing than you with your excellent karaoke skills can never be... Renaldo Lapuz!

Somehow, American Idol really has a way of bringing out the strangest people from the nooks and crannies of America. On the one hand, you could consider this shameless (he really is without it, yes?) attempt at notoriety and the corresponding ridicule inherent in the way Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and the producers treated him as sad. Opportunistic of the looneys of America, even.

But when you consider that this guy -- and all the others like him -- dressed up to be noticed , edited, parodied and mocked on TV and Youtube for now until the end of time -- it's not sad anymore. He is getting exactly what he was asking for.

Which is more than what can be said for the rest of us.
