YouTube comment exploit leads to copypasta vandalism

It's July 4th, so what better way to spend the day than declaring your independence from traditional YouTube comment dickery than coming up with an even better way to be loud and obnoxious? Until Google closes a rather serious hole in YouTube's comment code, you're going to see stuff like the marquee above appearing on YouTube videos all over the place.

The "hack" -- if it can even be called that -- is fairly simple and is being copy and pasted like mad. Be prepared to be offended, because it's safe to say that the fun-loving kids of /b/ are going to... er... take liberties with popular items like Justin Bieber videos.

Maybe they'll use the exploit for good -- like encouraging people to help out with the pollbombing to send Biebs to North Korea on his world tour.
