Youtube: The Best So Far

This is Spike. Hollywood has had a rough day, so I am going to give her a little vacation.

Here is my list of the best 10 videos ever posted on youtube in no particular order (and I promise none of them are of my kids.)

Now for the part where you reciprocate. Everyone post a link to their favorite video. I promise I will watch them all. And the winner gets a FREE item from Hollywood's Etsy store, Flakyfriends.

The winner will be selected by me on next Wednesday, so get your nominee in by Tuesday night. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to win a genuine Hollywoodflake's totally original stuffed animal creation. Sure, pretty soon everyone on the block will have one (or several), but you'll be the only one who got one for free. Don't wait! Link to your favorite* funny video today!

*This blog is rated PG-13. Please pick your video accordingly.



Update: Good videos. I realize I should have made clear---your choice doesn't have to be funny. Feel free to share videos that are just plain awes as well.

But the best youtube success story? Neal Schon was looking for a new lead singer for Journey and started watching live performances on youtube. He came across this Filipino kid doing Journey songs and asked him to be their new singer:

Susan M said...

Ha, I always forget that guy isn't a kid. He looks like he's 20, but he's actually 40.

This is what Francis, our friend Katy, and I did on Friday. All apologies to real Canadians. And the creator of legos. And the French language.

One of those "Bonjours" is me, btw.

compulsive writer said...

All time ever if a bit too much to ask of me. I'm fickle.

But here is my current fave.

compulsive writer said...

Apparently I also can't spell:

"...is a bit too much..."

Kels said...

It's a tie between these 2... Japanese humor never ceases to amaze me...

Silly Marie said...

This one cracks me up.

Ok., there have only been 2 funny links here. Are you all the people who choose the winners on America's Funniest Home Videos? I always wondered who thought those were actually funny...

Barbaloot said...

I am in LOVE with this kid.

Moving away from funny to thought-provoking:

* Here's the film that inspired Tony vs. Paul. Some of the moves from TvP are straight from this decades old film:

Neighbours

* And here's one inspired by the source of so much art:

I'm not going to think about her

This one I had to watch a couple times because I couldn't believe her response to the judge's question.

Miss South Carolina answers a question.

Shiloh, I love you. Why can't we be college roommates forever? Stupid Spike.

Erin Marie said...

Awesome. Rediscovered some old favorites here. :-)

I can't think of any videos except this one. Why are the Japanese shows so funny? http://youtube.com/watch?v=Zz7Xeg2dgVw

And I found this one from watching the pirate video you linked: http://youtube.com/watch?v=g4rrh3c2qlo&feature=related

Carolyn said...

This one is SO funny...keeping in mind that I love and respect President Hinckley and President Monson. I think they would find this super funny too!

Daggers, I think they took it down.

You'll have to view it from my blog then:

Janie and Andrew said...

This one is my all-time favorite!

Perla said...

Oh man! Compulsive writer already posted one of my favorites! Man Stroke Woman. So funny. Clowns are so scary. The schools are great, but there's a dead clown in the garden. Hm...a toss up.

Does it have to be from YouTube?

Perla said...

This is possibly the best song/music video ever. Andy Sambergs, "Iran (I ran) So Far Away"

Can't believe no one has submitted these two:

and of course,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbvP7dT3Dx0
Total classics!

Perla said...

Oh Silly Marie! I almost PMPL when he said, "my producer just told me this isn't a horse, its a butterfly..." BTW, my sister can NOT stand e-mail acronyms so I like to make them up to bug her. PMPL means Pee My Pant Laughing. Maybe I didn't make it up. I don't know.

Silly Marie said...

Perla you are a crack up.

Heather O. said...

Wow. This one is just, um, wow.

Perla said...

Jenny, thank you so much for the link to the fantastic Japanese workout on Youtube! I did that workout this morning and I feel so great! I discovered that I can say anything to my kids that I otherwise would keep pent up--I just have to say it in a high, soft voice with a Japanese accent! So, happy kids and happy me! I also think I lost 3 pounds.

Claire said...

This blog post was awesome. I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet but it rocks!
