QOTD: What's Your Favorite YouTube Video?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 100 comments

Ah, YouTube, the modern man's soapbox.

Millions of people use YouTube every day. Some people upload home movies for relatives in other countries, some make a living from it and others use it watch music videos and clips from their favorite movies. No matter what you use it for, one thing you can't deny is that, love it or hate it, YouTube is home to some of the most popular internet videos and memes that ever existed.

Marcus and I recently happened upon the '100 Greatest YouTube Hits in 4 minutes' video and it got us thinking. First of all, given that we didn't recognize a bunch of the stuff in the video, how many memes have we missed out on? Second, which is our favorite? Between giant waterslides, stealthy cats, Rick Astley, dudes backflipping into jeans, blending things that shouldn't be blended (don't breath this!), developers, Boxxy, and little kids drugged up to their eyeballs after the dentist, it took us forever to decide.

You can check out the video of below. While I'm at it, I'm going to embed Star Wars kid because really, it just doesn't get any better than that.

    Your not asking for much are you? Well I personally do not have one, too many to choose from.

    Urban Ragnarok.
    It's pretty close to the ideal blend of music and footage, edited masterfully.
    (hope it doesn't get taken down... again.)
    Not a meme, but maybe it should be.

    I was going to say Charlie Bit Me, but I see that's pictured in the top 100 compilation video.

    My little nephew likes to watch videos on youtube and I like The Elephant Song by Eric Herman. Seems to entertain me just as much or more than my 18 month old nephew. :)
