Exactly. Although my wife is convinced that David Copperfield flies with a combination of giant magnets and industrial hairdryers, so there's lots of weird and wonderful explanations out there, but no, I've not come across YouTube yet.
In saying that, I try to avoid playing to the 'youtube' age group, I'm either young kids professionally, or friends and family who are older and generally don't use 'new fangled' things like t'internet.
