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.
