National Guardsman who served in Iraq as a Combat Medic. Miguel received a
$10,000 check for his winning video, titled "Army Gollum." The video is not

were serving in Iraq.

The video's creator and prize winner, Miguel Zavala, said: "This was one of
the biggest surprises to come after my time in Iraq. I never thought a silly
video could go this far. I've always been a big fan of StupidVideos.com and
my friends tell me that I do a great Gollum impersonation, so this video was
a fun way to show that off. I guess they were right."

Greg Morrow, President and COO of PureVideo, parent company of
StupidVideos.com, added: "After searching through thousands of submissions,
Army Gollum really stood out from the rest of the stupid, humorous,
off-the-wall, and downright hilarious videos we received. It was an instant
hit on StupidVideos.com. We couldn't be more thrilled to award this to
Miguel, who has quite a sense of humor, and yes, he does a great Gollum
impression."

"Army Gollum" was viewed more than 500,000 times on StupidVideos.com and
received over 200,000 votes for the "Stupidest Video of 2005." It also
received a 9-10 rating (10 being the highest) from every user who rated it

Hardly surprising, I watched it 3 times to try to decipher the words - and still none the wiser. What's it about, anyway?

(Should bump up the viewing figures by a few hundred).

To paraphrase, "The Army hateses us, making us go to war"--"No, the Army loves us, they told us they would sends us to college, the Army is our friend!"--"The Army's full of S***!!!" :p
