Spam. We all get it. We all hate it. Want to have a laugh at the otherwise dry subject? Or maybe you have an electronically challenged friend who doesn’t understand the concept of spam and you want to provide them with a funny, yet semi-informative, video on what spam is. Whatever the case may be, the following video, created by a Youtube group that calls themselves “Glove and Boots”, is a hilarious video that explains what spam is. Check it out:

Take note, as Graham Cluley of Sophos points out, that the video gets one thing wrong. The word “spam” for electronic spam did not originate from Hormel Foods’ SPAM® food product but rather a Monty Python sketch [2] from the 1970s. Still, that oops does not take away from comical nature of the video.
