    The dude ripped off his video from two years ago:

    Aw that's so crappy. Over 40k views on that and it's ripped off.

    Really shocking Lifehacker would pull that crap. :rolleyes:

    I seriously thought this was a thread that got necro'd. I remember this video's original post.

    Shit, I didn't realize he didn't give attribution to Tom. Weaksauce.

    A little annoying, but to play the devil's advocate, I'll point out that the writer did phrase it as "...the above YouTube video shows off a clever "clown car style"..." which implies they're just showing off an unaffiliated person's video and not someone actually from lifehacker. And you can always click the "view on youtube" and see it's Tom's work. It's not like they hijacked the vid and re-posted it on their youtube channel.

    Yes, lifehacker gets views, but Tom gets views as well, plus more exposure. And lifehacker viewers benefit by learning to pack like a pro. And that's worth something, I suppose.

    You're missing it, @Bandrik. They linked to a NEW video that someone else posted, a copy of Tom's original. Look at the usernames.

    No, it points back to Tom's original video.

    //EDIT: Looks like the author had fixed the link and now it points to Tom's.
