There were so many excellent videos this year and most of those excellent videos got quite a few excellent parodies. Not to mention becoming the basis for some excellent memes. Ah...I love excellence. I'm sure glad the world didn't end today because I'm looking forward to 2013 trying to outdo 2012 in the excellent video department! Here's a little walk down memory lane, the top ten most viewed videos of the year. Let's give them all one more view, shall we?
10. Felix Baumgartner's supersonic freefall from 128k' - Mission Highlights
Remember when this badass jumped from the edge of space, broke the friggin' sound barrier and then asked me out to celebrate with him but I had to say no because I had plans to catch up on Breaking Bad that night? Yeah, 2/3rds of that happened.
9. Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen.
Girl disses dad on Facebook. Dad shoots daughter's laptop and posts video of said shooting on YouTube. Wins the internet. Girl then pouts like a little spoiled baby. The end.
8. Dubstep Violin- Lindsey Stirling- Crystallize
Okay, dubstep you win. I finally liked you.
7. WHY YOU ASKING ALL THEM QUESTIONS? .. #FCHW
Every bad relationship ever summed up pretty effin' hilariously. I wanna hang with these dudes. Also I want some pizza.
6. A dramatic surprise on a quiet square
Put out a button and you just know someone's gonna have to push it. Trolling IRL. Then watch as sh*t GETS REAL! Well done, TNT.
5. Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney. Epic Rap Battles Of History
Romney had as much chance at winning this one as he did the White House. Although he might have had a better chance at winning the White House if he had run with this Eminem-lite persona.
4. Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen - Feat. Justin Bieber, Selena, Ashley Tisdale & MORE!
Of all the amazing Call Me Maybe videos that came out this year...this one would be number one. Just to piss us all off. At least it's nice to see that Ashley Tisdale is still getting work.
3. KONY 2012
Okay. I have to confess. I never watched this video. But I also never shared it...so I'm not a total a-hole, right? I also have to confess that I watched the video of the Kony dude running naked like 6 times. I know...really bad priorities.
2. Somebody That I Used to Know - Walk off the Earth
Acoustic guitar playing is much cooler when it's not some doofus RA who only knows three chords and four Jason Mraz songs. This was definitely the song of the year along with Call Me Maybe and Gangnam Style...wait can you have 3 songs of the year?
1. Psy - Gangnam Style
Hey sexy Smoshers...did you have any doubt?? This video not only pony-trotted it's way to the top of the list for 2012, it's the number one viewed video of all time. ALL TIME!!! In your face, Bieber!
