    yeah, I posted the video on GBAtemp a couple months ago, but I can't find it in the search.

    It was the video "The Slowest Man Ever".

    The above link was to a Digg post about it, here is the direct Good Morning America Video + explanation:

    congratulations! you managed to get famous without making a fool of yourself. That seems to be a rare thing these days.

    btw, you posted it in the "YouTube gold" thread.

    Thanks guys.

    The only thing that sucks is that Google deleted my adsense account because my site was attacked from some forum vulnerability and said I was doing click fraud or something, so now all the traffic to the site will eat up my bandwidth and the little I made from the ads won't be there.

    Oh well, that's the price of 2 minutes of fame on the internet.

    I wrote to google and told them what happened, not sure if they will look further into it...

    Google is not the only company that offers money for clicks on their banners...

    Haha, nice work bud. Good stuff. Out of curiosity, how long did the time span of the slow dude in the movie take place? When did you first see him?

    Yahoo and MSN offer 'AdSense' type things, I think.

    Hey! I remember that! That's awesome that your video made it to TV. I bet that old man will probably hunt you down now, though...
