I don't think there is any prize out there that could get me to dress up and dance like an EBA, especially on camera.

It would be cool if someone did a live-action video of an EBA-type situation, contest or not.

With a situation actually in the process of being resolved in deliberately repetitive and limited-frame animation, while EBAs are dancing and reacting to circles that someone's added in with their video equipment on their computer.

I can imagine it, but it would be hard to pull off...yet the ultimate in awesome if done properly.

As it is, there are probably tons of stupid YouTube videos where people are just shouting "HEEEAAAAAAAALP!!!" and then some idiocy ensues.

Actually, it would be sad if there weren't at least some. EBA rules. At least, it rules enough that there must be some YouTube stuff of something about it already.
