Jon Stewart does Chatroulette

Video here.

Jon Stewart takes a spin on Chatroulette. For those that don’t know, it’s an internet site that let’s you video chat with random strangers from around the world.

I don’t want to spoil the bit, so just watch and enjoy. It’s funny stuff.

Saw this last night. Interestingly enough, I had only heard of Chat Roulette the day before, in a short magazine article.

Brian Williams was a hoot.

Brian Williams is a gifted comedian.

I had never been on that site and so I logged on after that article. I kept getting ‘Nexted’. Til I put on a kaffia. I didn’t get nexted nearly as much but for those who aren’t aware- there’s a LOT of prejudice against Arabs, though some teenaged girls evidently find it hot. The Daily Show segment wasn’t that accurate though since there weren’t any penises (well, Jayson Jones was close, but…).

Is chatroulette linked to facebook or anything like that or is it a self contained site?

I just watched it. Screamingly funny! Katy Couric was a howl.

Self contained… For now anyway. It was apparently created by some Russian teenager just as a fun little programming project. He didn’t anticipate it taking off the way it did. Story on creator here.
