Year in WTF!?

| No Comments
2010. The year that turned a mountain stoner and the relative of an attempted bed intruder victim into overnight celebrities. Of course we've all heard of Paul Vasquez and Antoine Dodson by now, 'tis the wonder of the interwebs. But what about the other unsung viral video heroes of 2010, the internet videos that somehow made their way out of the woodwork and onto our screens? Here's a look back at some of our favorite videos that caused us to say, "Whee! That's funny!" in 2010:


The Year of Taking Advantage of Those Under Anesthesia
Yes, we all saw David after the Dentist and then there was the Meg Ryan guy and the drugged up twins, but no one had us cracking up quite like Unicorn after Wisdom Teeth girl. If there was one lesson to take away from 2010, it's to not allow anyone with a camera anywhere near a waiting room.

Bad Santa
You have to admire someone that can dance completely uninhibited on the side of the street. Slap a Santa suit on him and you've got the makings of a great viral video.


Brett's Favreite things
He started out the year with this butt slapping video and ended it with sexting photos. Probably not Favre's classiest year, but definitely his most viral one.


Эдуард Анатольевич Хиль

Also known as Eduard Khil or the Trololo guy, 2010 became the lucky year for this internet meme, originally recorded in 1976.


Anything you can do I can do better
Bringing some much needed positivity to the web in 2010 was Jessica with her daily affirmations. I know I'm not the only one that has started doing these every morning. Right guys? Back me up here.


A Master's degree in COMMUNICATION
Obviously this guy is a pro in communicating. How else would you explain his equally impassioned and terrifying political speech? Chicago may have had Blagojevich for easy laughs but he was no Phil Davison.


Speaking of Blagojevich... Not even he could escape becoming a Taiwanese animation. It all seemed to start with the Tiger Woods animation, but by the end of the year it seemed everyone was getting the animation treatment.


Out indie-ing the indie-est
Antoine Dodson's Bed Intruder song may have been the most viral remix/cover of the year, but PS22 chorus' cover of Phoenix's "Lisztomania" is definitely the most talented.


Best cry ever
After a son pours out his emotions for his father in an episode of the A&E show "Intervention," his dad lets out what we can only assume is a cry. Only the best cry ever. After which the son cleared his throat and said, "uh, nevermind, gotta go!" and ran out the door. Some parts of this retelling were exaggerated and/or made up.


Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Nooo
2010 may have been the year of Justin Bieber, but this dad sure did give him a run for his money.

The language for this video is straight outta New York. Fugghedabout playing it loud at work.

Chicago is a town that appreciates clean streets after a snowstorm. In fact, mayoral careers have risen and fallen on the ability of the Department of Streets and Sanitation to pull a Mr. Plow and get the white stuff packed away.

The good folks of the Big Apple have been whipping themselves into a blizzard frenzy as New York struggles to get anything done following their big snow over the weekend. "Where are the plows?!?" they cry. "When will the snow be cleared?!?" they demand as the situation becomes critical and, in some cases, apparently deadly.

And along comes a city worker to answer their question with a resounding "be careful what you ask for."

Investigations and lamentations ensue after a front-loader, apparently stuck in the snow, is dragged out by a tow truck repeatedly into a parked SUV - with the angry screams of the apparent owner in the background and a semi-gleeful videographer capturing the whole mess.

Indeed, a supervisor may not be enough to fix this as it seems like shoveling teens may not be the only ones hitting the rum out there.

Paging Michael Bilandic: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has some questions for you ...

Are you on the naughty list? Expecting coal this year? License plate read HUMBUG? Don't trust the Defense Department?

Then this is not for you.

It's time again for NORAD and Google to tema up to tell us exactly where Santa is in his delivery cycle. No, they're not tracking him with Patriot Missiles. It's a service for the parents of the world to convince the kids to get to sleep before the Big Guy shows up in town.

Google has an iGadget available to watch the Jolly Old Elf and crew as they jet around the world at 650 feet per second.

You can also follow the trip on Twitter and via Google Maps Mobile - search for Santa.

On Dasher and Donner...
This guy must be Blitzen. There's no other way to describe how this video came to be. If I see him up on my roof I'm calling the cops.


Wake up in the morning feeling like making an awkward church parody
Somehow I don't think this is Ke$ha's target audience. Tying a song about getting drunk to a church service doesn't make much sense to us, or cents, or event cent$.


Poor kid will never live this down
This little boy was a bit too excited to see his uncle at the airport and ends up knocking himself out. Good thing no one else saw it. Oh, what's that, it ran on the news and is now being globally circulated online? Good luck, kid.


Aw, old men impersonating young kids
This isn't creepy at all. Oh wait, it kind of is.

By which we mean, of course, "Wow, that's fascinating!" Because during the last few days -- Wednesday, Thursday, Friday -- what tom-foolery has taken place out on the Interwebs. Here's a look at the things that have caused us to say, "Whee! That's funny!"


A Christmas Trololo
Because nothing says 'Merry Christmas' like random tra-la-la-ing.


Pope Gone Wild
Uhmm...this show for the Pope looks more like my friend's bachelorette party.


The "Bed Intruder" Christmas Carol
Because nothing says 'Merry Christmas' like attempted rape.


The files are in the computer!?
Yes, even you can learn how to use the interwebs.


He's Putin on a show
Hey Vladimir: Freeeebird!


Bad Santa
Santa gets down with his bad self.

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
Donald Trump's toupe (er, hair?) blows rather unnaturally in the wind at a recent football game. That toupe is fired! I just can't seem to look away. It's so mesmerizing.

Not what Sting had in mind
Somehow I doubt the red light Sting was talking about was the same one Rudolph has for a nose. If it was then Roxanne has got some explaining to do.

Scientific fun
These scientists pull a prank on a co-worker that he will not soon forget. I'm sure his chiropractor is happy though.

If only our telemarketers were this dedicated to getting a subscription
So do I need a computer to see the graphics? No, they're in the newspaper! A man manages to keep a telemarketer on the phone for a ridiculous amount of time. Only her boss knows how many actual sales she could have made in the meantime.

George Costanza's hands were better
This hand model is freaking us out a little. She claims she doesn't cook, clean, pick things up, or do anything with her hands. Sounds to us like it's just a good excuse to lazily sit around all day waving her luxurious hands.

Well, hopefully we've left you wondering -- WTF!? Check back next week for more ridiculousness.
