Light, in this case, didn't want to be part of this "relationship" with L and fought him throughout the entire video until the very end where he resolved the issue.
It was a very well put together video.
Maybe the concept is kinda played out (thanks largely to fanfic) but this video's technical / artistic merits and the way it stuck to the story made it solid.
There was also more comedic value and conflict than romance.
1: I'm not disparaging the video.
2: What is funny if it has so much comedic value?
3: Think about it. Are you really suggesting that only mutual love can fall under the romance category?
(honestly though I have little opinion as to whether this video should be categorized as romance, drama or upbeat)

The laughter was certainly genuine, as I myself found more amusement with it with each viewing.
I'll admit I didn't care much for it in the beginning in terms of concept (and I abstained from scoring any video for the preliminary screening) but it grew on me.
Bottom line: the viewers made their choice.
No one can say what people will find funny because often times people don't know themselves what they will find funny or why. I never said the laughter wasn't genuine. I certainly never meant to imply that people were aware that they were laughing because they are consciously rendered nervous by homosexuality. Laughter would be a poor defensive mechanism if people remained conscious of their underlying fears.
I don't care what people voted for. I am allowed to be disturbed by what other people find funny if I see a disturbing underlying social problem.
I'm sorry for coming off so contentiously. I feel like I should fix what I wrote before posting it... but I can't bring myself to.
