In what’s being hailed as the ultimate internet video, a segment at last week’s Webby Awards in New York City showcased viral video superstars and Webby winners OK Go and Animal from The Muppets in a not-to-be-missed staring contest backstage.
The video was shot by the winners themselves on Sony’s new Bloggie portable video camera, the perfect tool for capturing the next great YouTube sensation.
Other winners at the event included ChatRoulette.com innovator Andrey Ternovskiy, The Office‘s B.J. Novak and iconic film critic Roger Ebert, who won the Person of the Year Award.
All of the winners all delivered five-word speeches at The Webby Awards, the only ceremony where all winners are limited to five words each.
