Deface Your Favorite Videos!

posted by on July 13 at 14:33 PM

Holy holy crap. There’s a brand new website where you can copy and paste any YouTube link into a player, and scribble captions, quotes and/or graffiti all over the video. Any video! It’s kinda cornball fingerpaint style, but once you finish, you can submit it, and a new URL is available to embed on your own blog, or email to your pals.

It’s called RAKUGAKI. If the site first appears in Japanese, you can click it over to English in the upper left.

- Some tips for better “scribbles” include hitting pause before you start drawing, and taking multiple passes on a clip. Each drawing will fade after a few seconds of video, and you can adjust the color, size and transparency of the brush to potentially achieve some cool effects.

I smell a SLOG contest. Maybe people want to add some comments to Walk it Out


Or tell us why the Dramatic Chipmunk is so damn surprised? Or maybe Ecce Homo wants to add some commentary to Gays on Crystal

Viva la YouTube Revolution!

I predict a bunch videos with crudely drawn penises in them. That and the word "FAG!!!" written over people's faces.
