Awesome YouTube Videos

Post by dmarie84 » December 7th, 2009, 12:21 pm

I don't know about anyone else, but I know one of my major forms of procrastination is watching videos on YouTube. I'm sure I've spent countless hours on there watching silly videos when I should've been, you know, writing.

Anyway...I thought we could post some of our favorite videos from YouTube here...and end up spending more time that could be better spent.

First video: I can't remember which blog I found this on (I read so many on a daily basis...yet another form of procrastination), but I find it particularly hysterical.

I used this in a recent presentation at grad school. It was about terminating counseling relationships - to add a fun touch at the end.

Now, I can't stop watching it. I shall inflict it upon you, should you be so brave:

Here's a funny YouTube video created by professional filmmakers with live actors for the Twisted Tails anthologies in which I have short stories published. I love this video because it was made in the style of the old science fiction B movies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWHfII_beq4.

If I could figure out how to edit a .3gp video file from my phone to under 10 minutes to get Youtube to allow it, they'd be viral I'm sure. I have a Tornado day storm coverage and Toronto's first snowfall of December 2009, but both are over 10 minutes, life sucks.

The 4 that were not longer than 10 minutes have yet to go that way.

favourites I've watched, anything by TOP GEAR, especially involving the Ariel Atom car.
The treadmill dance was pretty cool also.
