Workplace productivity is set to hit an all-time low with the release of 'YouTube Slam.' The addition is a new feature of YouTube created in part with Google Research that allows video surfers to discover new clips and vote on which one they like the most.

YouTube Slam has five categories: comedy, cute, music, bizarre and dance. When a category is selected two videos will be displayed. Users can watch each video and vote for which one they think is better. Videos that get the most points will make it to Slam's leader board. Competitive slammers can even predict which video they think will blow up. Pick the right video and you'll accumulate points which are equal to bragging rights in the YouTube Slam community. Google and YouTube teaming up sounds like a match made in heaven. It may be only a matter of time before YouTube Slam becomes huge. Stats for Competitive Viral Video Viewing Trending: Older & Chilly
