It’s time for some instant nostalgia from the year that was 2013. Remember January? February? Ah, good times! In case your memory has been zapped into non-existence by the Digital Age, YouTube are at hand to remind us all about, well, YouTube so that next year we’ll be back like ravenous beasts hungry for our digital snacks. Still, not as good as YouTube Rewind 2012, back when music was really music and all this was fields.
Key and Peele eavesdrop on a conversation between two white women talking about having sex with a black guy, and it swings between compliments and backhanded compliments as the details how compassionate and in the moment and other they are and then follow up these with some casual racism to ruin it all.
Lost faith in humanity? Well, this video should go a little way to restoring it as 20 cancer patients are given a unique makeover experience—after being invited along to a studio their hair and makeup are done in a rather extravagant manner, which they weren’t aware of because they had to keep their eyes closed. Then, when they opened their eyes a photographer captured their astonished and happy faces for posterity. Touching stuff.
Imagine a world without fail compilations? It wouldn’t be a world most of us would want to live in, where we we get our schadenfreude lolz? We’d have to go and laugh at people falling over in the street, which would not only be hard to source but also they might punch you in the face for revelling in their misery—much better to laugh at them through the safety and distance of the internet.
Rogue! Your time has come, it’s time you went from X-Men to Ex-Men and took your affectionate nature with you, because it’s just not the sort of thing Professor X is after any more, you need to toughen up and treat people with contempt and hatred and then maybe, just maybe, you might be allowed back in. Maybe.
Wow, this is some wedding ceremony! Usually when the vicar makes the remark about anyone present who knows why the couple shouldn’t be wed, there’s just silence, here a torrent of deadly nunchuck assassins come from nowhere, only to be taken down by a bridesmaid headbutt them to the floor, and that’s just the beginning before Batman and Iron Man show up to put their two cents in. Till death do us part indeed.
The real reason you shouldn’t drink and drive is in case your “buddies” decide to pull the most epic of pranks and pretend that you haven’t just passed out drunk for a few hours but have been in a coma for ten years. It might seem like a mean thing to do until you find out this guy has five previous DUIs, so pretty much deserves anything he gets. Let’s hope this’ll learn him.
If you need cheering up today, then look no further than a cheerful girl dancing her rocks off to Pharrell Williams’ track “Happy”—it’ll inspire even the most curmudgeonly among you to raise an inkling of a smile as she takes to the streets of Bristol, UK and jives about looking like even the end of the world couldn’t get her down. She even inspires some random guy to join her. He’s probably drunk, but still.
OK everybody, after the internet’s love-to-hate affair with Rebecca Black’s “Friday” she’s followed it up with another track, this time called… “Saturday”! Yup, must have taken her a while to come up with that name, but it’s here and you can listen to it above. No doubt this will be as equally popular/hated as Friday, but just think she’s got five more days of the week to get through yet :(
Well, if you ever wanted to know who some of Sasha Grey’s favorite bands are and why she got into porn and why she wanted to get out of porn, then spend 11 minutes of your day watching this documentary in which the porn star reveals the details of her life and actually comes across as a really nice person, if a little pretentious.
Sometimes you’ve got to just face things head on. So let’s have it out. Come at me Monday! COME AT MEEEEEE!!! There, once you tackle your problems like that—and Monday is always a problem—then you can start to feel in control and not like you’ve been partying all weekend and now suddenly you’ve been cast adrift, alone and terrified, in a train so packed with commuters it’s making you come up on the remnants of Saturday’s drugs. That double-drop you did at 3am Sunday morn doesn’t seem like such a good idea now, does it?

It’s the Supernatural/Adventure Time mashup you always wanted but were too shy to admit to yourself or anyone else. But don’t be afraid, come closer, closer, closer—not too close or you’ll hurt your eyes, but close enough to enjoy this pop cultural merging of two awesomely geeky shows.
People Are Awesome? People Are Awesome! Yes, it seems that they are, at least the people in this video are, chances are if you walked out into the street right now and started talking to the first person you see, they might not be so awesome and will probably just want to get on with their day. But you never know, so why not go out and try it. But stick a Go Pro to your head before you do and carry a surf board under your arm, you know, for effect.
It’s not everyday you come across a stop-motion video created using 100 people in their birthday suits — but that’s what you’ll witness in the video above, which tells the story of Sam, an out of shape guy who needs to be surrounded by naked people rolling around and creating patterns before he has the epiphany that he needs to look after his body and go do some exercise. Maybe it’s the motivation we all need.
Vines, they’re the perfect format for our information-overloaded minds, where our attention spans have been whittled down to mere seconds—so just when you’re getting bored, along comes something new that’s just as funny and inane and occupies your brain for just the right amount of time before it needs more stimulation.
Forget about all those other Christmas hits that we’re all sick to death that we hear year in, year out—whether you’re a Trekkie or not this is the only holiday song you’re going to need—ever—so crank it up real loud and have it on constant repeat from now until the new year until it has consumed your entire life and left you with no friends. Make it so, make it so, make it so!
