After the jump I’ve got a kooky little video starring Neil Patrck Harris as some kind of mad scientist called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.  So what the hell does that mean? Says the video’s creator Joss Whedon (the guy behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, among other things):

During the strike I started writing a musical [A gay guy in a musical? Stop the presses! –Ed.] intended as a limited internet series, 3 episodes of approximately 10 minutes each. Writing with me was my brother Jed, his fiancee Maurissa, and my other brother Zack.  …It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to. And I’m having the time of my life. []

Starring NPH as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, and Felicia Day as Penny.  I don’t like to brag, but I used to be something of a super-villain myself.  Professor Skidmarks, they used to call me.   [Thanks to Michelle for the tip]
