I learned from some very good friends over the weekend that some of the videos I consider to be "classics" may not be as well-known as I'd thought.  So here are some links to a variety of  hilarious web videos.

This is apparently doubling as my Funniest Web Videos of the Decade post.

1.  Here Comes Dr. Tran.  The original, and still utterly brilliant.  Hard to categorize; it's a silly, animated farce.

2. Powerthirst.  The best energy drink ad you will never see.  400 BABIES!  Also: The Sequel.

3. Font Conference.  A College Humor original, and an instant classic.

4. Mortal Kombat is Not a Tournament.  Another brilliant CH original.

5. Dangerous Wands.  Yettanuther CH original; Hermione replaces Michelle Pfeiffer.

6. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.  All hail independent production. And NPH and Nathan Fillion.

7.  Toy Cack.  A worthy (if insane) follow-up in the Dr. Tran universe. Toy store!  Dickable Afternoons and the Roybertito's commercial are also awesome.

8.  Saturday Morning Watchmen.  The opening theme sequence to the most awesomest cartoon I'd ever watch if they'd ever make it.

9.  Patrick Duffy and a Crab series.  Another inexplicable one.

10. Dramatic Prairie Dog.  Because I'm anal enough to want to get the damn species right.

11. The Legend of Link's Distractions.  What always goes through my mind when I walk away from an urgent boss battle in order to go somewhere else to level up my weapons.

12. Hamster on a Piano.  I apologize in advance for the earworm.

13. The Mysterious Ticking Noise.  And all the other Potter Puppet Pals videos.

14.  Every Maru video ever, but particularly the big box and the paper bag.  I can't even imagine how she'll ever be happy with any other cat again in her life after that glorious fuzzbutt.

15. Brokeback to the Future.  Awesome trailer mashup.  OH the meaningful looks.

16. Auto-Tune the News.  Almost totally redeems this otherwise heinous piece of technological evil that enables pretty people who can't sing.

17. Really Bad Ninja.  An oldie bit of shame.

18. Wee Mlle Capucine and her 'popotome that was allergic to magic.

19. Sonya the Slow Loris, who loves to be scritched.  I love her "YAY!" moment near the end.

20. Not funny but still awesome:  I Love the Whole World (Boom-de-yadda), OK Go's Here It Goes Again, and considering inclusion of Chocolate Rain, David/Vader After Dentist, Miss Teen South Carolina, Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody, Kittens Inspired by Kittens and I'm Fucking Matt Damon.

Not to be included, because although they're popular, I find them unfunny, overhyped, creepy, uncomfortable and/or cruel: Star Wars Kid, Evolution of Dance, That Wedding Procession, any Top Ten List, or any republican trying to catch the culture wave by engaging in rap, hip-hop or breakdancing.


This list is a work in progress.  I'm sure I've missed big ones -- let me know your faves and I'll include them if I loved them too but forgot to include them.
