Chocolate Rain

And the winner for best music video: “Chocolate Rain.” Tay Zonday morphed from an unknown musician to an Internet superstar who got booked on national TV shows after his song “Chocolate Rain” – an amateur clip of his baritone crooning – went viral last year. Now he’s among the 12 winners of the second annual YouTube Video Awards, recognizing the top user-created videos of 2007.

    Tay Zonday, the man with the VOICE is a very versatile artist. I think he would be great doing voiceovers. His YouTube spoken word segments are mesmerizing.

    This is one of those things that you just can’t make up your mind, whether to laugh or to cry. On one hand, it’s kind of catchy, though repetitive. On the other hand, it’s absolutely dreadful. I don’t know if the campy video makes the song better or worse.
