Hilarious hack attempt

So some guy sets up a honeypot, and this dude connects to it...

Judging from the way he doesn't seem to know what to do when a command fails to work, I'm guessing this was someone who had just learned how to use bash.
The most incomprehensible (and funny) part is around 1:14 when he downloads Windows 2000 SP3. The best explanation I can come up with for all of this is that some kid wandered into an IRC channel where he didn't belong and the regulars thought it would be funny to send him to a honeypot and feed him ridiculous commands to type in.

PS: Doing this blog would be a bit more fulfilling if anyone actually read it.
