Yoostar: You're not a star at all and there's a reason for that!

It seems someone has come up with the worst idea in the history of mankind: Yoostar. This is a system (for $170!!) that allows you to film yourself in a movie scene of your choice. I don't even understand why this exists. It's true that with Guitar Hero and Rockband we suddenly all think we have the ability to be superstars, but the sad truth is, we don't. At least with those video games, your lack of talent is mercifully glossed over. Not so with Yoostar. Once you get the recording system, you're free to film yourself in whatever terrible, awkward, embarrassing way you choose.

Take, for instance, every single video on their entire site.

The only redeeming quality (if you can call it that) of this site is Snoop Dog's inexplicable presence. I hope he got paid a lot of money to do this. Nonetheless, his videos are actually kind of funny, but only because he's Snoop Dog.

If nothing else, this site makes me appreciate real actors more. And makes me think maybe they do deserve the outrageous amounts of money they make.
