The Ten Awesomest Videos Of 2012

01 In the year that brought us Gangnam Style, Facebook parenting and that guy jumping out of the International Space Station, 2012 has been an excellent year for Youtube entertainment! Among my countless hours not having a girlfriend here are some of my awesomest discoveries of the year!

 

1. Jack McBrayer & Triumph Visit Chicago’s Weiner’s Circle

Old Conan staple classic Triumph The Insult Comic Dog teams up with Jack McBrayer of 30 Rock fame to take on the rude employees of an infamous hot dog vendor. Insult comedy at its finest!

2. Impractical Jokers – Cheering At A Baseball Game

Impractical Jokers is my favourite TV discovery of the year! In it, the hidden camera format is crossed with improv and dares through an earpiece to create the world’s greatest prank show! In this clip, the guys are forced to start terrible chants at a baseball game. Teeerrrible chants.

3. The Ragtime Girls: It Wasn’t Me (Jimmy Fallon)

Jimmy Fallon and his musical styling have produced some gems this year. One of the greatest is when he teamed up with a barbershop quartet do a hilarious take on an old Shaggy classic.

4. YouTube Challenge – I Told My Kid I Ate All Their Halloween Candy Again

Jimmy Kimmel has developed a reputation as the king of Youtube dares. In this clip gets parents to film their kids while they explain (lie) to their children that they ate all their Halloween candy. Totally expected tantrums ensue but watch at the end for some of the world’s awesomest kids.

5. LAHWF – Telling People Corny Jokes

LAHWF is my greatest Youtube discovery of the year. He takes the Youtube prank and delivers it perfectly in a hilariously deadpan, awkward way. The low budget feel of every video combined with large spaces of cringeworthy silence makes for a channel of Youtube greatness.

6. Overly Attached Girlfriend

In 2012 the internet provided me a really good heads up to never date clingy girls.

7. Girl Crushes

2012 is the year I fell in love with Boston Youtuber Jenna Marbles. She has many great videos talking parodying gender stereotypes and weird social norms. Here she talks about celebrity crushes and my she is so fine. Marry me Jenna… hot… funny… so outta my league…

8. OH MY DAYUM

Schmoyo of Songify This! fame raise the autotune bar with this amazing ditty about a guy reviewing his burger. He really enjoys his burger as much as the double rainbow guy enjoys rainbows. Enjoy!

9. 90’s Pizza Hut Prank

This video is beautiful. Two guys try to redeem a Pizza Hut voucher from a 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie VHS. Does it work?! Will they ever wear clothes made in the new millennium? Watch to find out!

10. Cannonball Ice Dude – dude jumps into frozen pool

And finally a classic pre Web 2.0-style fail video… This one doesn’t need much explanation except they’re from a foreign country and there’s a guy trying to jump into a frozen pool… a classic…

Bonus:

Waiting for an iPhone 5…for no reason

This lady wants an iPhone and an iPhone only because she wants to text and use the internet! Pfft Apple devotees… (*I own a MacBook)

Murr Charity Punishment
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoOe83AV2lk

Another clip from Impractical Jokers, not on their official Youtube so pending removal. This is prank shows at its best… a guy gets put on the spot to collect donations for a charity which he has no idea about in front of moviegoers…

The Hunger Games Game
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BK6YeSw-3Q

The blockbuster movie about teenagers killing other teenagers made into a board game for kids!

Dinosaur Office:

They’re dinosaurs. In an office. What else can I say?!

Flight of the Conchords – Feel Inside (and stuff like that) + Interviews
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca4ty7tz9x0

Flight of the Conchords make a charity song for kids, by kids… well at least the lyrics are…
