Infinite Solutions was a web series from 2006-2007 that brilliantly parodied 1990’s era tutorial videos. In each episode, host Mark Erickson would guide viewers through a plausible enough task, such as improving your WiFi signal, or recharging batteries. But Erickson’s earnest delivery and the convincing production quality belied the fact that everything in the show was a hoax. In 2007, Infinite Solutions released a video showing how to unlock a beta of GoogleTV by logging in to Gmail 11 times in a row. The hack was the subject of hot debate amongst tech bloggers at the time.
The guys behind Infinite Solutions, Zach Johnson and Jeffrey Max, now run their own production company, Fatal Farm.
