The award for best first use of the iPad 2 for a web video at SXSW goes to Eugene Mirman

The cast of FOX's new animated series, Bob's Burgers, took over guest blogging duties for Videogum on Friday. Even though Eugene Mirman was in Austin, Texas, for SXSW — far away from his fellow cast members — he still found a fun and unique-for-now way of contributing to the cause, thanks to his purchase of Apple's new iPad 2.

See, the iPad 2 allows you to shoot video. I saw that during SXSW as a guy held up his iPad 2 during my entire panel to record it for posterity (will he share it with me/us, though? the suspense…). But if you see what Eugene does here. Well. Just see!
