Dance December: Video of the Day for December 15

At the end of this choreography reel, the choreographer, Ryan Kasprzak, says, "thanks for downloading!"  Excuse me, but I didn't download anything.*  Did you just start using the internet yesterday?

* In the case that you also started using the internet just yesterday, and you're confused, he should have said, "thanks for watching!"  If you want to get technical, I actually don't know whether when watching YouTube videos, you're streaming or downloading, but the truth is it doesn't matter:  certainly, "downloading" is not colloquially applied to describe watching YouTube and thus "thanks for downloading" sounds dumb.
