The video of Paisley’s song, “Online,” from his recent “5th Gear” album, recently topped the chart on iTunes, something no country selection had ever done.

Why? Well, watch the very funny video below and see the tale of someone who is a little different in real life and on MySpace. As the often clever Paisley writes: “Cause online I’m out in Hollywood/I’m 6 foot 5 and I look damn good … I’m so much cooler online/So much cooler online.”

Aren’t we all?
