Top 10 Viral Videos

Lately I've been feeling a bit nostalgic still for my college years and for some reason something prompted me to go back and relive those fabulous early days viral videos.  There are so many good ones that I decided I need to do MY top ten list like Letterman (or is it Leno?  I don't know I don't stay up that late haha).  

10.  Lazy Sunday
Coming at number 10 is Lazy Sunday compliments of Andy Samberg and SNL.  It's the Chronic (what?) Cles of Narnia!!!


9. Evolution of Dance
This guy is the original and the best clearly.  I appreciate his seamless transitions and use of not so common tunes i.e. Oompa Loompa song : )



8. Jill and Kevin's Big Day 
I know the pitchforks might come out because I included this one.  Yes I know it was soooo over done but seriously look at how good this is.  You can tell they were just having a good time and not out for the 15 minutes like everyone after.
    


7. Daft hands

Two words ... mad skill.  Anyone who says it's lame I want to see you do it!  My hands would be all discombobulated.  I'd really like to know how long she practiced.



6.  Potter Puppet Pals
I actually had totally forgot about this one before I went through my old bookmarks.  It still really confuses my why Dumbledore looses his clothes.  Some good clean Harry Potter fun with this one!



This is where things get difficult.  My top 5 are really my all time favorite viral videos and honestly it's kinda hard to rank #2-#5 they are all equally awesome for different reasons.

5.  Call Me Maybe Chat Roulette
This is a more recent video obviously but honest to goodness viral video gold.  I've watched most of his other stuff and it really doesn't hold a candle to this one.  I mean seriously the crab hopping part on the floor (2:45)? I DIE every time.


4.  Here it Goes again
Again this is some really insanely awesome skills they're pulling out here.  Not only are they all nice a coordinated but they're doing it on treadmills, I can't even lightly jog on treadmills for fear of pulling an AFV moment.  I love the fact that they did this behind their label's back and it was a smash hit.



3.  Yatta
Japanese guys in leaf loin clothes, pretty sure I don't need to say anything else.



2.  Aisha
This video holds a special place in my heart.  I'm not sure why we got so attached to this one but we did.  We were even doing his little dance moves at the end.  Picture it three white girls in the freshman dorm doing the Aisha moves.  The glory days.


DRUM ROLL PLEASE ........


1.  Numa Numa Guy
I'm pretty sure this is the original viral video and it will always be the best.

  3. Hi Betsy, I am Ada. Stopping by from Penniless Socialite. Those videos are crazy funny. The funniest video which I discovered only 2 weeks ago was the song "What did the Fox say". LOL
