The Top 10 Viral Videos of 2011


10. The Force: Volkswagen Commercial

 

Commercials are almost always disqualified from this sort of thing, but this one was just so darn cute.

 

9. Jian Sword Dancing

 

What the damn is this? What is grandma doing there? Is that dog going to get stabbed in the face with a sword? Why is this shot like a scene from Napoleon Dynamite? This video poses some tough questions.

 

8. Gritty Live Action Mario Trailer

 

How much like a real indie movie does this look like? It looks EXACTLY like a real indie movie, doesn’t it?

 

7. Most things by 331Erock

 

Although he didn’t have one especially viral “hit” in 2011, his brutal rocking guitar versions of unlikely songs made him a frequent feature online.

 

6. eHarmony Video Bio

 

Is this fake? This is fake. But MAN, when you didn’t know this was fake, this was the best.

 

5. Talking Twin Babies

 

Back in March, everyone from your Mom to Patton Oswalt was crazy about these two babies that seem to be having a very serious conversation.

 

4. Le Internet Medley

 

Although catchy and packed with plenty of references to your favorite bits of internet culture, this one is slightly disturbing. Things just don’t seem as special when they’ve been collected and organized and regurgitated.

 

3. Honey Badger (Warning: Contains Swears)

 

This should be shown in science classrooms.

 

2. Friday

 

For a glorious moment, the entire internet was united in its hatred of Rebecca Black: a 13-year-old girl who sings like someone dropped an elderly frog in a oscillating fan. And the lyrics? “Tomorrow is Saturday And Sunday comes after … wards. I don't want this weekend to end.” That is comedy GOLD. Friday basically ruined an entire day of the week forever. Now THAT is a powerful viral video.

 

1. Nyan Cat

 

I can’t even explain why anyone likes this video. It’s an animated gif of a 8-bit cat that is part pastry and craps rainbows in space. Nothing happens in the video. NOTHING. But there sure is something special about that cat. NYAN 4 LYFE.

    With to be honest, if you tend do training distributor numerous plans,
    main difference means that this latter is not an option.

    I’m not sure if I should take this as attempt’s to come after me
    or simple paranoia. Extravagant handbags are generally made
    out of attractive designs ornamented with precious stones, crystals,
    or beads.
