The amount of time people spend surfing viral video sites is alarming. YouTube is a fan favorite, along with stupidvideos.com, metatube.com, and vimeo.com, just to name a few. My personal favorite is YouTube. There is no limit to the number or weird, strange, funny, or informational things you can see on this site. I’ve used this site to get a help on my homework, learn how to use my financial calculator, see some key points of a television show I missed the night before, and to get a few good laughs. Here are three of my absolute favorite funny YouTube videos.
Brian and Kate’s Evolution of Wedding Dance
This is my favorite YouTube video. It starts off with a newly married couple dancing to their first song as man and wife. The song is Alison Krauss’s ‘When You Say Nothing At All”. This is a popular wedding song choice, but Brian and Kate wanted to mix things up and take the traditional aspect out of a couple’s first dance. About thirty seconds into the song the music changes. I’ve never seen a bigger man move so well: I underestimated Brian’s dance ability at first glance. Kate doesn’t appear to be the best dancer in the world but with a long wedding gown I think she did well with what she had. Popular songs come one after the other in a montage of themes. Grease Lightening, Bye Bye Bye, Can’t Touch This, Lose Yourself, Walk Like an Egyptian, are just a few of the many possible songs that play in this five minute track. Each song has a dance that Brian and Kate worked out with one another so it looks well rehearsed and incredibly adorable. At the end it switches back to Alison Krauss and they casually pretend like nothing happened. It’s a great first song in my opinion. It’s unique and it shows that they definitely have a fun side to their marriage.
Charlie: Candy Mountain
This video is totally trippy. This is a cartoon video of a unicorn named Charlie. His animal friends want to take him to Candy Mountain. He doesn’t want to go but they drag him along anyway. Along the way they see some very interesting things, one such thing is a leopluradon. They finally reach the mountain when these little creatures start singing a crazy Candy Mountain song. This video is a bit funny and entirely confusing. In the end he walks into the mountain to find that there’s nothing inside and it’s just really dark. The screen goes black and Charlie wakes up in the meadow with a scar on his side and explains, “they took my kidney”. You’re left thinking”… what?”, but it’s still funny in a really strange way.
End of Ze World
This is about the end of the world. It begins with a globe, the ice caps melt, some meteors hit the earth, and everything is about to go down. Areas of the world start hitting each other with nuclear missiles which leads to an inevitable nuclear winter. This winter will kill off almost everything. Assuming there are still people around, they will notice that California is going to separate from the United States and move down somewhere near Hawaii. This is a video that explains a very wrong, but very interesting way in which the world may end. It deals with the environmental factors such as melting ice caps and meteorites hitting the earth. It also has political factors such as a nuclear war breaking out after one country launches the first missile. The entire video is done in a French accent and as such it is titled, “End of Ze World”.
Well I hope this list will keep you laughing for the duration of the videos. There are many more hilarious YouTube videos you can check out by going to the most popular or the favorites section.
