The 3 PS3 Guy came from a skit done by the Canadian internet comedy group called LoadingReadyRun (www.loadingreadyrun.com) from late December 2006, in where one of the cast shows up that he have 3 PS3s (this in a time where it was hard to even get 1). However, only one of the PS3s was real and the others were display copies from the store.

The whole video was only meant as a joke but got a bit out of hand as many thought it was real and actually got angry at them. It didn’t take long before a number of parodies such as “no PS3s” and “100 PS3s” started appearing on youtobe along with commentary videos to the original and a large number of copies of the original, and for a while ever now and then someone posted a picture of “The 3 PS3 guy” on 4chan.

This is however a meme that only lasted about a year or 2 (I think).

The original was uploaded nearly a year ago and has less than 2,000 views. I’m gonna say no.

Oh sorry. They (loadingreadyrun) didn’t post it to youtube until reacently and only had most of their videos on their own homepage (here is the original in it’s original page http://loadingreadyrun.com/videos/view/182/Three-PS3s )
However, one of teh first copies to appear on youtube; the day after they posted it on their own homepage has recived 260.000 views ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Enau4SKqeZY&feature=related )

This has just reminded me of something amazing.
Not sure if too many of the American’s here have been educated in the way of the Fonejacker, so here.
