I was watching The Dish the other day (Style Network’s answer to The Soup, with host Danielle Fischel… you know.. Topanga from Boy Meets World?) and when Danielle went over a particularly creepy clip from Toddlers and Tiaras, a happy place thought bubble came up. Usually, the thought bubble has a YouTube clip of something cute like Surprised Kitty or the really cute baby that does Wendy Williams’ famous “How You Doin’?”.
Additionally, I saw Chris Brogan’s blog post from yesterday, which got me to thinking about my favorite YouTube clips (my little digital happy places). Thus I thought I’d share a little joy with you! #1 is the only one that’s NSFW, but if you stop it around the last 10 seconds you should be ok.
Cheers, ladies and gents! And make sure to add your favorites in the comments!
1. Chola Makeup Tutorial
This girl is HILARIOUS! She does some great tutorials and impressions, so make sure to subscribe to her videos. (She’s GlowPinkstah)
*Note: This and most of her videos are NSFW*
2. Hey Jude
This is TOO cute and it’s one of those adorable kid things. I’m a sucker for little kids doing cute things. Throw in The Beatles and we have an EPIC win.
3. Charlie Bit Me
A timeless web meme classic. More kids doing cute things, and as it’s been said, it shows all of human life: joy, trust, happiness, doubt, pain, fear, grief and joy again. Deep.
4. Evil Eye Baby
Just the thought of this one makes me giggle! Again, kids doing cute things – this little dude gives the BEST evil eye, and it cracks him up too.
5. Sneezing Baby Panda
Ahh, memeville. It’s so pleasant here! Anyway, the sneezing baby panda is so cuuuuuute! Just watch.
6. John Williams Is the Man
Okay, the music geek in me emerges from the closet on this one. This is one guy in four takes, singing a medley of John Williams’ most famous film scores with lyrics about Star Wars. Big major crazy props, too- he arranged and wrote the lyrics for the whole thing. Stellar!
7. The Muppets Do Oh Danny Boy
Beaker, The Swedish Chef and Animal. How could you go wrong?
8. David After the Dentist
Another nugget of awesome from memeville- I really wish I was that funny when I was all laughing gassed up after getting my wisdom teeth pulled. Unfortunately, 20 year old women seem more like trainwrecks than comedic geniuses when they pull these sort of antics.
9. Daft Punk Girls
This song is my working anthem.. seriously. If ever I’m feeling sluggish and unproductive, I turn on Daft Punk. If ever I need a good pick me up, or just to be inspired, I turn on this video.
10. Sarah Palin’s Greatest Hits
Ahhhhh, Sarah Palin. This woman has brought schadenfreude to new heights. If ever I find myself facing dark moments of self doubt (and by self doubt I mean the times I feel really stupid), I can rest well after watching this.
So those are my favorites- what are yours?
