So I'm really pissed at how useless some forums/people are. Check out the opening post of this forum. This guy starts this thread simply to brag he got Hulu working on his Apple TV 2 and didn't bother to leave any instructions. I eventually figured it out after a ton of googling. So just to spite this guy, here are my instructions for complete noobs. I won't even tell you to go read up on FTP before doing this. Before you begin, make sure you have XBMC installed on your Apple TV 2 (ATV2). If you can't figure that out because you're a noob like me, let me know and maybe I'll put together another noob guide for that. Ok, here it goes.

This is all done wirelessly. Leave the ATV2 plugged into your TV as usual.

Alright, Step 1:
Download this zip file: bluecop.xbmc-plugins.zip

Download WinSCP and install it. I used version 4.3.2


Step 2:
Open WinSCP and enter the following information in the session window
user name: root
password: alpine

Picasa%203%202252011%2081321%20PM.bmp.jpg

Step 3:
Save the session as ATV2 for future use and then login to it

Step 4:
Browse for the zip file you downloaded above. Drag it from the left directory to the right directory. The copy dialogue will pop up as below. Just make sure you enter /var/mobile/ and then hit copy. You're now done on your computer

Step 5:
Go to Xmbc -> System -> Addons option and select install from zip. Select the zip and your good. Now it will be accessible from within the video add-ons.

I don't know enough to help you troubleshoot, that's why this is a guide for complete noobs by a noob. This is just how I did it.
