"Leave Britney Alone" Star Chris Crocker Gets HBO Doc

Chris Crocker, the now 24-year-old man who rose to YouTube fame when his 2007 video "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE" (referring to Britney Spears) went viral, has aroused more ire than almost anyone else on the Internet for being, well, amazingly annoying. But you have to pay attention!

At least that's the premise for Me @ the Zoo, an upcoming HBO documentary about Crocker chronicling his rise to fame through YouTube. The film, which premieres on HBO on June 25, first showed at Sundance in January. It's called Me @ the Zoo because that's the title of the first clip ever uploaded to YouTube.

So watch the trailer above and the original "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE" below and let us know if you'll be seeing Me @ the Zoo when it comes out!
