Gotta Watch: Stay away from the webcam

Nowadays just about anyone can get a hold of a camera and upload videos online for the whole world to see… whether this is a good or a bad thing is still up for debate. Just yesterday a “web diary” from Casey Anthony was “leaked” online, receiving a lot of attention. This got us here at Gotta Watch thinking about the perils of webcams. Whether you shouldn’t be allowed alone with a camera, or you just can’t figure out how to work it, here is a look back some top webcam fails.

Casey Anthony’s web confessional – A video surfaced Thursday of Casey Anthony, sporting a new blonde hairdo and glasses, talking vaguely about the developments in her life since being acquitted of murder last year. Many people have criticized the “tot mom” video as being narcissistic and a publicity stunt, even though her lawyers claim it was unauthorized.

Is this thing on? - An older couple mistakenly became a YouTube hit after recording themselves trying to use a webcam.  These seniors may not have any idea what they were doing, but it sure is amusing to watch.

Leave Britney alone! – One passionate fan just couldn’t stand all the criticism Britney Spears was receiving from the media in 2007, so he decided to speak up on her behalf. While you may not agree or even care about the point he is trying to make, you can’t deny that he is pleading his case with fanaticism enthusiasm.

What are your thoughts on the proliferation of web videos these days? Share your favorite webcam moments and leave your thoughts in the comment section below… or better yet create your own video response here.

Exclusive look at front lines in Afghanistan

A Marine Corps cameraman was able to capture a rare, firsthand glimpse into a battle with the Taliban. The footage offers an unfiltered look at the Marine’s experience when faced with a surprise attack by the Taliban on November 22, 2011.

Lance Cpl. Jacob Lagoze captured footage of the Marines of 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment as they engaged in a firefight with the Taliban for more than three hours at a remote outpost in southern Afghanistan.

The Marines stationed at Patrol Base Georgetown found themselves under fire from Taliban forces embedded in caves across the Helmand River. This video offers a glimpse into the grim realities of war, and includes sound from several Marines as they reflect on their combat experience. The Marine regiment was forced to call in an airstrike to provide backup fire during the battle. While the unit did suffer some injuries as a result of the conflict, all marines are currently recovering or have returned to duty.

The madness of Black Friday is behind us.

Woman pepper-sprays shoppers - Police say a woman pepper-sprayed fellow customers on Black Friday to make sure she got a hold of a deal at a Los Angeles Wal-Mart. The woman then proceeded to pay for her items and leave before police arrived.

Gotta Watch: When animals attack

Animals can be pets, but sometimes it's hard to remember that animals are, well, animals.  Take this video of a turkey for instance.  It may look  sweet and harmless, until it starts chasing a TV producer, leaving her screaming for help.  In the spirit of this hilarious video of a wild turkey, we at Gotta Watch put together a few of our favorite videos featuring animals chasing people.  Check out what happens when animals attack.

Turkey's fowl play -  This is possibly one of the funniest videos between a television news producer and a turkey.  You've gotta watch how this seemingly docile turkey chases her....and how it all ends.
