Don't Tase Me, Bro!
After a September 2007 speech at the University of Florida, U.S. Senator John Kerry opened the floor up to questions. When Andrew Meyer, a 21-year-old journalism major, got his turn at the mic, he launched into a tirade that campus police deemed too belligerent--so they swooped in to give the agitated undergrad the bum's rush. A scuffle ensued. "Don't tase me, bro
!" Meyer wailed. Oops, too late! The ordeal was caught on tape and quickly became a viral smash. The end result: A Today Show appearance
for Meyer and a treasure trove of taser-worthy video clips, including several rap remixes
, one with parachute-pants icon MC Hammer
