Not sure if it even counts because it’s a music video, but OK Go’s “Here it Goes Again” enchanted me for a while. Think I’ll go watch it again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTAAsCNK7RA

Not only is it hilarious, you learn something to, at least the first time you see it, after that i’m not exactly sure why i watched it over and over again. Also how awesome is that, it gets bitten by a cobra and survives! .

http://vimeo.com/2429759#

Such a terribly bleak song perfectly intercut with the lamest viral videos of days past. This made my day, my week, my year, and still cheers me up without fail. It’s the trainer fist pumping, the walrus aggressively taking the sax as to not miss his cue, and Gerry Rafferty trying to soak in everything (or forget…).

I’m not sure there was a single video I was obsessed with, but I do remember some really early web shows I watch like Miss Muffet and the Muff Squad.

This was in the dial-up era, so it was tiny, and the compression artifacts filled up half the screen. It was still amazing.

I died the first time I watched it and showed it to all my friends. Eventually I showed it to one of my teachers and she still shows it to her class.

Anyway, I’m now addicted to Pocket Planes. CURSE YOU DAN HARMON!

It hits right in the juvenile, immature, funny guts that I hope to never lose. There’s nothing high-brow or sophisticated about this, but I love it all. I showed every friend I had, and found many of their reactions to be lacking. It probably didn’t help that I was just staring at them and smiling wide while they watched.

Ron Swanson dancing with that little hat is already one of the funniest things ever so it on a loop was just magic for me. I just let it play every time I get on my computer.

I remember sending it to all of my friends, and posting bumper stickers (remember those?) on fb to my friends that said stuff like “Can I have it??” or “Y’vonne-my little cwossaint…a little brie on my cwossaint”. And yes I could probably recite the whole thing by heart still.

My brother showed it to me when I was eleven or twelve, and from that point on I was hooked. I started religiously going to HomestarRunner.com and watching everything they put out. From there, I discovered the wonder that is the internet. So, one could say that that video gave me the push I needed to become the dedicated citizen of the internet I am today!
As a side note, I can’t not talk about internet videos without linking to my niece’s very first instructional video, how to make bubble juice the easy way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLqkYp093uw I can’t help it. I’m a proud aunt.

I used to watch it almost everyday which wasn’t easy because this was back in the dial-up days so it would take hours to load.

It was a youtube series by a guy named Robert Benfer, but he went by the name Knox. and he made Claymations. First one I saw was Hotdog Job. I was like 10 or 11 when I saw them and they completely shaped my sense of humor and the kind of things I like today. It was like If Tim and Eric made cartoons. I got OBSESSED and I even got a signed DVD of the series for Christmas. I would quote them nonstop. I would try making my own and fail miserably. And just recently he announced hes ending the series Next Year. And some part of me Understands. But it’s like the last part of my childhood that’s still around and now that its ending I’m realizing i’m growing up but thanks to Knox I know I can grow up and still do childish things. That Signed DVD Is still my most prized posession.

I watched that video countless times, and it never got less funny. I ended up scouring youtube for every talking animal video I could find, but none could beat it.

It basically poked fun at the DC movie franchise and how outdated and poorly structured it was compared to the newer Marvel movies. When I first came across it, I was completely obsessed with Marvel Comic (still am) and became this crazy die hard fanboy at the age of 12. None of my friends were really that nerdy, so I was pretty much alone in my comic obsession. I loved the video because it showed that there were people who liked the same weird stupid stuff that I liked. I had yet to realize how many of us weirdos there actually were…

Streaming was lame in 2001!) was a short little video that someone had recorded at a convention in the 90s. It was a group of men watching the absolutely terrible trailer/sizzle reel to a failed American re-make of the anime Sailor Moon.

While the footage of the odd cartoon/live action hybrid remake was hilarious (25-year-old women pretending to be 12-year-olds, wheelchair dancing, wheelchairs in SPACE, the absolute worst of early 90s fashion, and an earworm of a terrible theme song) the fact that the only audience that you see and hear happen to be grown-ass men and that they’re so into watching this terrible footage from a show made purely with little girls in mind? That’s what really made me continue to watch it. Now I wonder, of course, if those same guys are now all “bronies”.

A version with the introduction cut off is, of course, on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwQSWrA9CNg

I don’t know what it was, maybe my love for Jackass type stuff at the time, but I remember just dying laughing at it over and over. For your viewing pleasure:

It is essentially a glorified powerpoint presentation, but I know all the words, and friends and I still quote lines from it.

“Dread Hawk” is still one of the funniest things to me in the entire world.

Finding the COPS/Star Wars parody TROOPS by Kevin Rubio was a revelation in that I was not actually the biggest Star Wars nerd ever. I watched it morning, noon, and night and showed it to everyone I met.

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched that video. It was so good, I ended up donating to “The Guild” several times to help them complete production of that original season.
