This is how the Internet works

Oprah has a contest to give someone their own TV show. They upload audition videos to her contest website. Out of the hundreds of entries, one (via Neatorama) is by a gentleman named Zach who has Cerebral Palsy, a great sense of humor and a unique idea for a TV show:

Over the weekend, Zach's audition video goes viral and accumulates two million votes on the Oprah site. His chances have gone from slim to great all because of the Internet love. And Zach is very grateful:

By the way, I should have qualified my post heading by stating, "This is how the Internet works for Good". When used for Evil, dimwitted politicians from Alaska tweet any damn fiction that floats into their heads and millions take it as gospel.

But I'm trying to take a page from Zach's book and stay positive, here.
