The Tube

proper noun; clipping
YouTube
 
"I saw it on The Tube; it's the third video down when you search 'Halo PS2 brothel'"
Etymology : Clipping of YouTube to "Tube" and addition of "the" for clarity as a proper noun again, as in "The Book". Not because it's faster; simply because it sounds cooler, and, probably, because it is the old term for "television", which makes it cool and retro to use for the "modern television".
