Wow, to think that YouTube is only five years old. I still remember the poorer times when we were deprived of the endless pop trivia material that YouTube now daily feeds us. Those were simpler times but they were also more lame. Long live YouTube.
So which viral videos or memes do I love? Here is my top 10 list:
10. Rejected – The Oscar winning short, that almost never was. “I am a banana!”
9. Between Two Ferns with CoCo – Interview technique perfected. Awkwardness galore.
8. Cullman liquidation – As tough as they come. Need a mobile home?
7. The Bush-Blair duet – Johan Söderberg is an editing genius. Here he makes a poignant yet funny political comment.
6. Christian Bale rant – True emotions at work. “God you’re amateur”
5. New Dork – A brilliant song remixed to hilariously comment on the startup scene
3. Hey Allan – Few things are as fun as combining human characteristics or words with animals
2. Dramatic Chipmunk – I could watch this on repeat for a days
1. Keyboard Cat – My absolute favorite. The poised cat, the catchy beat and the endless varieties. A true classic.
