What's the path to fame in the legal world? YouTube. It worked for a Virginia attorney who has become an internet sensation thanks to his hilarious "So You Want to Go to Law School," videos. The videos have gone viral, with the original coming up on 1,000,000 views on YouTube.

The videos are the work of aspiring novelist and Virginia attorney David Kazzie. Kazzie's practice involves disciplinary cases for health care professionals.

The videos were created by David Kazzie on the Xtranormal cartoon program, which gives them a surprisingly funny, monotone, robotic voice. They feature bitter, sarcastic and jaded attorneys meeting with naive pre-law students and 1Ls.

If you haven't seen the videos, they are definitely worth checking out.

Here are a couple of highlights from the original and episode one:

So you want to go to law school....

"There are like three lawyers in America who argue constitutional issues ... They all went to Harvard and graduated in the 1970s. Did you go to Harvard?"

Episode one:

"Just remember this one thing...I know a lawyer in town...he was in the Peacecorps for a while after college...and contracted Ebola virus while on assignment in the Congo...his eyes bled for three days...despite that, he said his first year of law school was worse...yeah, worse than contracting the Ebola virus."
