The first in a series of four videos, The Website is Down has been driving technical support staff to tears (for both reasons) since it first appeared on Blip.TV over two years ago. In May this year, it was awarded a Webby in the Viral Video category, definitively proving that good things never die on the web. What’s truly remarkable about this clip (apart from its unsurprising longevity) is that the entire 10-minute short story is filmed as one elaborate screen capture.
It’s not for everyone but if you’ve ever tried to provide guidance to the digitally illiterate or found yourself butting heads with technical support this is sure to raise a chuckle.
