I’ve traded in my afternoon/dinner coffee tonight for a ginger ale, because I’m visiting my parents for my reading week and lord knows if I make a coffee this late they’ll bitch at me. So ginger ale it is. When I’m home and my dad often refuses to change the channel on the tv, and with the olympics right now, my only relief from sports is Youtube. I’ve found that lately, the only TV show I really follow is 24, and that I am more eager for new episodes and videos from my Youtube subscriptions. So I’ve decided to compile a list of my top ten favourite youtube videos. I only counted 1 video per channel, and only videos that are original to Youtube/internet – no reposting of things from TV or movie trailers or anything.
So here it is – My Top 10 Favourite Youtube Videos
10. The Retarded Policeman #10 – Mexicans, MediocreFilms/Ponceman
I only recently found The Retarded Policeman series, long after the Perry brothers have stopped posting videos with MediocreFilms. I picked the Retarded Policeman film because they are just so funny, plus it’s what led me to subscribe the ponceman channel, where the Perry Brothers now update their own films. And I know some people will think this is being cruel or unfair to Ponce because he has down syndrome; however, he is a really funny guy, and he knows what he is doing, and it looks like he and his brother are having a blast. I really recommend you check out this series, and then mosey on over to the ponceman channel.
9. 24 The Unaired Pilot, collegehumor
I am a huge fan of 24, and while I’m not always a fan of every video that collegehumor has put out, I love this film. It pokes fun at not only one of my all time favourite shows, at the 90s, which were ridiculous. I think it really captures the essence of what the show is, as well as making it silly to set it in the 90s. A really good watch if you’re a fan of 24.
8. The WTF Blanket (Snuggie Parody), jacksfilms
I hate the Snuggie, and anyone who owns one is a fucking tool. They are robes backwards. Anyways, if you hate the Snuggie, or own one and need to see why no one talks to you anymore, watch this hilarious parody.
7. Best of Elevator, nqtv (Remi Gaillard)
I’m not sure how I stumbled across his channel, but I’m glad I did. Remi is from France, and he does a bunch of practical jokes, that are bit risqué, dangerous and offensive. And I love that. I picked the “best of” elevator video because it gives you a glimpse at a few of his elevator stunts, which are so thought out and hilarious (at least I think so). Definitely check out the rest of his videos though.
6. Pedophile Bears, jonlajoie
This video is so wrong on so many levels, but so freakin’ hilarious. You’ve probably seen someone with beards like that, or glasses like the Rapist glasses, and just thought “there’s something wrong with that guy”. It’s very dark, and very funny – check it out.
5. Stuck it in the Wrong Hole, shatteredinsides
This song gets stuck in my head for weeks at a time, and I seriously want this is my ringtone. It’s really well done, it’s catchy, and it’s very, very wrong. Go. Watch. Now.
4. Canadian, please, gunnarolla
This video came out last Canada day I believe, and being Canadian, I think it’s just amazing. Nothing else I can say.
3. Women in Comedy, picnicface
It was hard to pick one picnicface video, because so many of theirs are just amazing and funny. I can watch this everyday and not get tired of it. I’d also recommend checking out Liberty 45 and Powerthirst.
2. Hi, I’m a Marvel…and I’m a DC: Wolverine (Deadpool) and Watchmen, ItsJustSomeRandomGuy
Again, it was hard to pick one video from this channel, because the series is just great. I picked the first appearance of Deadpool, because he just nails the character, and I love the interaction between him and Rorschach.
1. Stupid Mario Brothers The Movie Act 1 Part 1, Richalvarez
This series is amazing, and all the other videos on this channels are just great. The Stupid Mario Brothers show is so unbelievably funny, and while the first season is a bit silly, it’s still just great. The second and third season have a really well thought out story too. I picked the first part of the movie as number one because the movie is just fantastic, and it’s so well done. And considering they’re taking at least a break from SMB (if not even stopping altogether), it’s a really good way to “end” the series, and I thought they did a great job. Definitely start from season 1 though if you really wanna watch it, you won’t be able to stop.
