I've seen memes and viral video come and go....IRC, AIM, Myspace....friendster even!! And this week's LJ Idol topic got me thinking about some of the funniest damn things I've seen.
The first one I remember is the classic "All Your Bases Belong to Us" and it even went so far as to have a hockey version when (I believe) the LA Kings and Detroit Red Wings had an epic playoff battle. I think this was somewhere around 1999-2000.
Then, there is the Badger, Badger, Badger video which....as an Ohio State graduate, gets used every time we play Wisconsin in football because well....it's time to beat up on badgers
Not to be confused with equally annoying Hamster Dance (please don't kill me, the next link will save you if you survive)
Another classic that I think is still capable of garnering laughs day in and day out is the Misheard Lyrics video of Pearl Jam's "Yellow Ledbetter". I'm pretty sure that this song is just Eddie Vedder's stoned ramblings and there aren't actual lyrics, but this interpretation is beyond hilarious. If you don't laugh, check your pulse. This damn video is timeless.
Can you see Dems?!?! MAKE ME FRIES!!!
Then came the Cat video era.....
I feel ya, Burgers & Fries....I feel ya....this is how LA traffic makes me feel sometimes, dude:
And well.....Cheaters isn't just a tv show for humans at 3am when there's nothing but infomercials on....there appears to be a cat version as well:
These are just some of my faves over almost 20 years of surfing the World Wide Web.....I hope you've enjoyed some of these classics as much as I have over the years, but now I must "keep calm and end this meme"....and post
