Ah, you've seen a thousand articles this one. A catchy title, lots of links to most popular Youtube movies out
there, recycled unto death. But maybe I can do a little better and give you a handful of really great video clips
that you won't easily find in all those other bombastic compilations? No Star Wars fat kids, no ninja cats,
something new, fresh and original.
Compiling the list wasn't easy for two reasons. One, because finding really unique, interesting and/or funny
Youtube videos is not really simple. Like anything else on the Web, 99% of it all is utter garbage. Two, even if
you do find watchable content, not all of it can be shared. Best means more than just a chuckle. Best means
molesting all your co-workers and forcing them to stop doing whatever they are doing and stand by as they watch
the video while you wait for their reaction. Best means actually bookmarking a video, which is as rare as mango
in Novaya Zemlya. Best means the time you have invested has been repaid, handsomely.
This video is amazing for several reasons. First, it's extremely emotional and touching. Unlike the staggering
amount of Jackass-style diarrhea you normally see, this video shows something simple, beautiful and constructive.
Second, it's an elephant painting. You do understand that?
Painting oneself indicates self-consciousness and intelligence and sheds a different kind of light on humanity.
And even though the elephant is being aided by a guide, even though she may be merely redrawing images she has
seen earlier, it's still more than the vast majority of mouth breathers on this planet are capable of. Just think
how many people have the desire or the skill to pick up a brush and paint something? How many of you have ever
drawn a painting? Just think about it.
If you're a guy, don't be ashamed if you shed a tear watching this; it's allowed.
Worst Wedding DJ Ever!
Text first, because it's too precious to watch without a short intro. Not too many people have seen this, which
makes it all the classier. Hint: What's the most appropriate thing to do while listening to In The Air Tonight by
Phil Collins? The answer is drum on some mammary glands, naturally.
Watch carefully, I don't want to spoil the surprise!
BigDog is a dynamically stable quadruped robot created by Boston Dynamics as a proof of concept for a robotic
pack mule that would accompany soldiers in terrains too rough for conventional vehicles. Rather than using wheels
or tracks, it uses four thin, seemingly ungainly legs that look like a crossover between goat and camel. End
result, impressive grip on any terrain, no matter what. In fact, it looks uncanny. Imagine a goat without a head
dancing on ice. Exactly. You must watch to appreciate the eerie genius of this invention. The only downside is
its loud petrol engine, but that should be solved easily.
If you don't know who Liam Kyle is, you're missing an important segment of culture. The funniest piece he's ever
made must be his Shoes album with Kelly. Trying to explain the content would be difficult. Kind of, what do you
get when you blend a disturbingly un-feminine Liam dressed as a girl with 80s neon pop and gypsy caravans?
Indeed, best watched.
I had to do it, one of the mass-spam classic. I am not normally fond of kids and despise their would-be cute,
uncoordinated theatrics, but this parent seems to have nailed it, both in not having a too failed genetic
offspring, as well as filming a very decent production, even if it may not have been intended. Oh, if you love
the movie because of the child, you're missing the point. Still, it's quite funny.
Yozhek v tumane (Hedgehog in the fog, Russian, English subs)
You don't need to understand the words to appreciate this clip. It's the best stoners' video ever made. Jimmy
Hendrix has nothing on this. A little hedgehog gets lots in the fog. As simple as that. Add dramatic classic
music, Soviet visual art and voices that sound like the birth of a Satan, and you get a perfect LSD-induced
I really can't say what the motivation for this production was - or the enormity of the subliminal and
anti-political, but it surpasses the grimoire of Brothers Grimm. I shudder at the thought that Russian kids
watched this as yet another innocent cartoon. But it surely is the best hallucinogenic animation made, under the
pretext of child entertainment. Scratch Disney's fluffy colors, this is pure hardcore. Whoever made this is an
If you don't know who Denny Blaze is, turn your computer off now. Denny Blaze is probably the best rapper in the
world. Long before 2Pac, long before Eminem, Denny Blaze made himself a future legend by producing several
home-made videos of such bad quality and choreography that they buffer-overflowed right into the realm of total
genius. MTV ridiculed him back then, but this kind of stuff could not be kept buried forever. Seventeen years
after making his work, it resurfaced and caught the world in a firestorm.
Your first reaction to watching one of his clips might be: WTF, in street parlance. But if you think more
carefully, you'll realize that Denny was way, way ahead of his time, way ahead of our own time even. Few people
can truly understand the quality of his work. Blazin Hazen is a great, catchy musical piece, with smart lyrics
and retro-80s effects that blow your mind. Give it a whirl, you'll be addicted.
You must also watch the original Average Homeboy, which
made him so popular.
You use Microsoft Windows, right? Tell me how you feel about your operating system after watching Steve
Ballmer deliver his out-of-breath evangelistic piece on software development. Now, that's dedication. Truly a
moment to cherish and tell your grandparents, in case you decide to procreate.
Anyhow, now you know why beating code monkeys is a justified social activity.
On that happy yet frightening note, me list endeth here.
There you go. To the best of my knowledge, only one of these, the Dentist clip, features on all kinds of top 100
lists and such, which makes me proud of my choices. Now any random guy on the web could chose his collection of
videos and write an article such as this. But that's not the point. The point is that like everything else on
Dedoimedo, my short list is unique and tremendously funny.
I guess that would be all. A not so important moment of humor. If you've got any classy videos to share, feel
free to send a link. Notice, anything showing emo kids with skateboards or melodramatic sexually insecure
teenagers hurting themselves does not constitute as anything other than pure feces. And while we're talking of
absolute quality, you sure do want to check Maddox's Youtube channel and his latest show. Brilliant.
