Tosh.0: The Web Redemptions We’d Like to See

<i>Tosh.0</i>: The Web Redemptions We’d Like to See

When we heard that Tosh.0 had surpassed The Daily Show and The Colbert Report in ratings, we weren't surprised -- Daniel Tosh's take on internet videos is hysterically funny, especially when he gets together with the subjects of the more embarrassing videos for the segment called "Web Redemption." While he's met with the stars of some great videos so far -- David After Dentist, the Lightning Bolt LARPer, the Crystal Light Dancers -- there are still plenty of famous ones we'd like to see him investigate. Here's our highly incomplete list.

Double Rainbow Guy
Let's start with a relatively new one -- the easily awed double rainbow-spotter thinks double rainbows are the most magical, wondrous things ever, and the world is currently laughing at him for it. Maybe Tosh can try to show him some equally or possibly more wondrous things? Or at least confirm that he was doing a lot of drugs at the time?

Star Wars Kid
If this guy isn't the Holy Grail for the show, we don't know who is. After suing the families of the schoolmates who uploaded the private video of him swinging a golf ball retriever like a lightsaber, which has been estimated to have been viewed 900 million times, he apparently went on to become a law student and spokesperson for his town in Canada. You know where he is, show -- make a charitable donation and get him on camera!

Charlie Bit My Finger
The show's budget may not cover a flight to England, considering that the Daily Show's foreign correspondents regularly report in from a blue screen, but it would be worth it to see how Harry and his toothy younger brother Charlie have grown up. Are they still as devilishly adorable? We doubt it.

Grape Stomp Lady
We know the show's producers are looking for this woman, and we hope they succeed, because this news reporter toppling off a stage with her feet in a bucket of grapes makes us cringe every time. Worse even than the girl who fell down the stairs in her prom dress and the girl who wiped out re-enacting Risky Business. It may be because of the howls of pain that follow.

Epic Beard Man
We're not sure we want to extend the bus-fight popularity of Thomas Bruso, nor tempt him to also punch Tosh in the mouth, but this angry, 67-year-old Vietnam vet is certainly a famous figure in the world of viral videos. Still, it's not as innocent and good-spirited as most of the Web Redemptions.

Hitler Reacts to Everything
Okay, so technically, it's just a clip from the movie Downfall hilariously dubbed and re-dubbed to show Hitler getting really angry about various things, but maybe acclaimed German Swiss actor Bruno Ganz would be willing to come on the show, put on the mustache and react to something in the studio?

Church Singer John Daker
We're not sure when this video was shot, or if John Daker is even still alive, but we'd love to hear the incredibly awkward church singer perform "That's Amore" from beginning to end, without the endless pauses and goofy faces. Actually, we're not sure we want to see that. But we do want to see where he lives.

Bubb Rubb and Lil Sis
We'd love to spend some more time with these two at what looks like the most fun garage in San Francisco, so maybe Tosh can have them install whistle tips onto the most preposterous car he can find, and then drive them around the Bay Area making "Woo-wooo" noises at random passers-by.

Shattering Katana Guy
Basically, we just want Tosh to check in and make sure that this guy is all right. The man took a samurai sword to the chest -- self-inflicted!

"Boom Goes the Dynamite" Sportscaster
C'mon, we all experimented in college. And aspiring sportscaster and Ball State University freshman Brian Collins had to start somewhere on his path to being a TV personality, so he did it by trying to replicate the seamless banter we've seen on real sports shows. He failed. We don't know what he's doing now, but hopefully he's still covering the Pacers, and can demonstrate some new banter for Tosh.

Leprechaun Sighting Interviewees
On St. Patrick's Day in 2006 in Mobile, Alabama, people reportedly saw a leprechaun (or a crackhead, the jury's still out). Now, we're not saying they did and we're not saying they didn't, but we still want Tosh to talk to them and maybe organize a leprechaun hunt.

What Web video would you like to see made into a Web Redemption/Reunion on Tosh.0? Let us know below, then see why we think Pretty Little Liars is a lot like Gossip Girl.
