Currently riding the wave of YouTube cynicism is Magmaflower with his ‘My Video for Briona.' In an effort to cheer up his ‘baby girl,’ he decided to declare his love to her in front of the whole YouTube community.

Featured in the video is lyricism that would have any poet cringing such as the line "I love you more than there are grains of sand...on every beach...on every planet...of every galaxy of the universe." Combine this with bizarre puppy dog-like eyes, psycho swaying and his general failed efforts to seduce the camera and you get a video that is impossible to view without feeling extremely embarrassed and uncomfortable.

If Briona still hasn’t cheered up, the video has still brought joy to over 1 million YouTube viewers.
