As much as I pretend that I don’t look at Buzzfeed articles every once in a while, I’m going to take a page out of their “clickbait playbook” and show you guys 5 videos that got me through me my pre-college youth. Now, keep in mind, these are the 56k and Pre-YouTube days, so each one probably took me anywhere between thirty minutes to two hours to download. That, and the videos were scattered all over the internet that word of mouth was really the only way to find them.
Anyway, let’s get right to it:
#5 Fat Dutch Kid
This one always makes me smile. The dude is just so happy and has a few killer moves (like “The Worker” when he starts pulling in from side to side). However, I’m not fully convinced the kid is Dutch, but who knows. The song is “Dragostea Din Tei (Original Romanian Version)” by O-Zone
#4 Grape Stomp Lady
Hahahaha….euhhh euh EUHHHHHHH!!!!!!! The news anchors at the end pretending to be concerned are a great ending.
You have a 32.33 percent (repeating, of course) chance of thinking this is funny.
#2 Pork Chop Sandwiches!
There’s a ton of these GI JOE PSA parodies, but this is the one that got me started. Sidenote: who the ‘eff puts drapes over a stove?
#1 Star Wars Kid
Hahaha…..I don’t know how many hundreds of times I watched this video. It’s great because he just gets more out of control the longer the video goes on. I think I have a personal connection because I used to do the same shit, I was just smart enough to not video tape myself.
I’d say this was one of the first viral videos (pre-dating the actual term, I believe) and underwent a series of re-edits. My favorite one is below.
Hahaha….this post SHOULD have taken me about 10 minutes to write. Instead, I think I just wasted two hours watching (then rewatching) these clips over and over.
For maximum effect, hit play on all six videos for the Ultimate Geek A.D.D. Experience!!! Actually, that was a joke, but I decided to try it out and it was pretty hilarious! DO IT!!!
