"How to Prank a Shower Head With Chicken Bouillon" Puts How-To
 Supersite's Video Database Over The Top Just In Time For April Fool's
                                  Day
SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
The milestone 100,000th how-to video has been added to
WonderHowTo.com, the community-powered website that unites how-to
videos from more than 700 other sites into a free searchable database.
The announcement was made today by Stephen Chao, co-founder and CEO,
WonderHowTo.

   The 100,000th how to video added to WonderHowTo is entitled "How
to Prank a Shower Head With Chicken Bouillon," and it comes just in
time to be the ideal April Fool's Day prank. The video shows
step-by-step how to place a bouillon cube into a shower head in order
to make the target of the prank exit the shower smelling like broth--
either beef, veal or chicken, depending on the preference of the
prankster.

   "'How To Prank a Shower Head With Chicken Bouillon' is a delicious
joke for April Fool's Day, but it's also a great example of the
unrestrained creativity shown by the WonderHowTo community which
enthusiastically submits how-to videos to our site every day to keep
it growing," said Chao.

   The video was submitted by "Swallowedbyafish" and is hosted on
Metacafe. The video will be featured today as the "Pick of The Day" on
the WonderHowTo.com homepage, and "Swallowedbyafish" will receive
assorted gifts from the company, which may include a lifetime supply
of chicken bouillon.

   A variety of DIY video tutorials were submitted just prior to the
100,000th video including "How to Merge Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
with Photoshop" and "How to Yodel with Basic Control Techniques." With
over 400 searchable categories, the runner-ups demonstrate the broad
scope of how-to videos covered at WonderHowTo.com.

   Upon its launch in January 2008, WonderHowTo immediately became
the world's biggest free how-to video resource. The how-to supersite
aggregates and curates links to thousands of videos featured on other
popular how-to video site publishers, as well as specialized

worldwide. With its community video submissions and unified video
search, display and grading functions, WonderHowTo makes the process
of finding, consuming and sharing free how-to videos online
