How the whole of Internet got owned: Revelation: Sad Cowbell Girl Is Blind, Entire Internet Hangs Head in Shame:
The viral video, featuring a beret-wearing college student banging on a cowbell (bereft of joy), was posted to YouTube (YouTube) yesterday after the Fiesta Bowl.
Soon, it made its way to sites like College Humor, and inevitable spin-offs were concocted, such as “Boise Sad Cowbell Girl Doesn’t Fear the Reaper” (as you can see, some smart cookie took that vid down, along with the original).
The mockery was short-lived, however, as a tweet by Boise State student Gloria Miller revealed that the girl in question is, in fact, blind, and did not notice the camera panning by her.
