Right, I know you read about all these other lists of “top 10 videos ever” blah-blah! But seriously. They never seem to satisfy me. They always leave out the ones that I think were freakin’ amazing. So, in true “OMG! Sum1 on the Intert00bs is wong!!one!”… here is my subtle attempt at bashing them.
Firstly, an honorable mention for Numa Numa – a classic bizarre video from long before the realms of YouTube! Additionally – Charlie and Susan Boyle (both of the YouTube era), although not my favourites – do get a hat tip for being interesting for a watch at least once.
But now, in reverse order – the top 10!
This is truely, truely the most frusting song on the internet. Once you’ve heard it, you cannot get it out of your head for the rest of the day.
9 – Mario A Capella
A group effort showing a bunch of people singing the Super Mario tune, providing all the parts and the entertainment – with none of the expensive woodwind section
Ask any World Of Warcraft player if they have heard of Leeroy Jenkins and 99% will say yes. So utterly famous he appeared in a recent update and you can now get an in-game achievement with his name.
7 – Rick Rolling!
A meme of the most annoying type. Used normally to trick people into listening to it – I’m offering it to you this time with a warning: This video contains Rick Astley.
This quite simply makes you smile and is one of the rare videos on the internet that doesn’t involve laughing at someone else’s expense.
5 – Star Wars Kid
The original is amazing! But then there are loads of follow ups (particularly good is the light saber adaption). He became so famous that the Internet bought him a Macbook and Lucas Arts gave him a role in one of the Star Wars films. Epic!
If I’m not mistaken, the first full 1080P YouTube video (be sure to set it to HD before you watch!) – and it’s awesome. I’m a fan of the Muppet’s and Queen separately, so when this came out – my head exploded.
From the era of Flash comes this bizarre storyline accompaniment to what appears to be a celebrity-apocalypse. Very fun and very tongue in cheek.
Sensationally funny! I have long since campaigned to get a guy like this into every workplace. Up to yet, I’ve been 100% unsuccessful – but I have not given up hope!
This guy can SERIOUSLY dance. I don’t mean in a crappy Britain’s Got Talent kinda way! The best few minutes of your day – watch it! It’s the best video in the entire interwebs!
