4Chan, Zach Anner and the Oprah Contest

I've only recently become aware of the happenings on the interwebs with Zach Anner and the Oprah Contest. From the article:

There's a lot of anger and snark on the internet (I should know, I write some of it), so it was great news that this weekend gave us an internet story that just makes you smile. That story is the tale of Zach Anner, a young man with cerebral palsy, who became the internet's latest celebrity when he entered Oprah Winfrey's contest to give a regular person their own TV show. Anner's audition video was hilarious and his overall good nature won over the internet and soon a few well-placed links had landed him more than two and a half million votes!

Read on there, and then check this out, and then the answers to reddit video, which might explain things a bit more.
