"Leave Britney Alone!" guy gets 15 more minutes - VIDEO

chris crockerChris Crocker has signed a development deal with reality programmer 44 Blue Productions. He's the guy who got his 15 minutes of fame last week when his mascara-run plea to "Leave Britney Alone" appeared on every news and entertainment show under the sun. Crocker, of course, was reacting to all the bad reviews that Britney got for her phoning-it-in performance at the VMAs.

44 Blue says it's had an eye on Crocker for over a year but decided to scoop him up when he got massive play last week. If it ever gets a green light, 19-year-old Crocker's program will be reality-style, about his life in Tennessee with his grandparents.

Crocker's famous video is after the jump, and here is where you can see Seth Green's spoof of Crocker.

This Crocker person I just kind of look at him/her with total bewilderment...but Seth Green was so funny in his impression, I nearly passed out laughing at his performance.

Once again, being an attention whore pays off.

I, for one, can't wait until this thing starts to progress like the Star Wars Kid. Clones, remixes, re-enactments, etc.

In this video, which is funny as hell, it says that "both of us (it and Britney) are beautiful WOMEN".

So it is trans something, just saying. If you think that is a 'normal" male or a gay male you are wrong.

Personally, I had to bail at halfway through this kid's diatribe because it was just so pathetic. Does Brittany deserve the dressing down she got for her performance? From what I saw, yeah. Does she get marketed as a product? Of course: she helped to package it. If this kid wants to stand up for Brittany against the tirade of backlash, then fine. But the over-the-top performance of weeping and gnashing of teeth was just horrible and pathetic. I would have paid more attention to a slightly tearful plea for people to ease up on the Brittany-bashing. I've never heard of Crocker before, but my first introduction has me tremendously less than impressed, thoroughly convinced he's off his rocker and in need of a life STAT.

As it stands now, Crocker is an object of hilarity, parody and ridicule, which - in the end - might give him more in common with his martyred queen, and that may be what he was wanting all along.

Really? The geniuses at 44 Blue looked all over the entire internet and this is what they thought they'd sign to a development deal?

They are made of FAIL.

Matt, this... "guy"... has had about 50 other videos like this too, this one is just the hit.

And it's an act to get attension so he can get money for a sex change.

And I know guys with long hair who wear makeup, they still act like they are...

1. A human being and not some crazy alien thing.
2. They act something like a man.

He was on the Maury show this morning. He said that all his "performances" so far on the net have been him acting out EXCEPT his "Leave Britney Alone!" vid. He told Maury that he has thousand of dollars in Britney memorabilia and that before being an American, he is a Britney fan.

Elsewhere, he said he wants people to stop using Britney but on the other HE uses her to get more than his 15 minutes of fame.

If someone ever gives him air time on a network, I will not watch.

Damn it...people fell right into this...thing's trap.

It's an act. Anyone could act like a giant, flaming queen of a person and make a video on YouTube that gets 5 billion hits a day. Now he's going to spread, like a horrible, horrible virus.

*sigh*

Where's Jack Bauer when you need him?

Finally, one step closer to my dream of Dax Flame being signed on to play a role on LOST.
