It was the plea heard around the world: "Don't Tase Me Bro."

Now, the video of University of Florida student Andrew Meyer being Tasered at a speech by Senator John Kerry has been nominated for an award on YouTube. The confrontation was captured on film by The Gainesville Sun.

YouTube says the nominees represent the most "buss-worthy" clips of the year.

The winners will be announced next Friday.
