10 of the Greatest Viral Videos Ever – Watch, Laugh, and Pass Them Along

Updated on May 2, 2012

And here are the top 10

As Internet users, we have all seen some of the wonderful viral videos that make their way around the web, but I am constantly amazed at how many of my friends and family miss some of the greatest videos every produced. Of course most of these videos are not intentionally filmed with humor or cleverness in mind, but isn't that what makes these videos so great. The spontaneous chain of events that lead to great videos through pure accident. I thought it would be a great idea to write a hub that offered up some of my personal favorites, with the hope that readers would make some recommendations as well. With that in mind, here are 10 great (and often hilarious) viral videos.

Afro Ninja

This is a quickie but goody. Apparently the setup goes like this. Afro Ninja was trying out for a television commercial so he really needed to put on some good moves to get the gig. You decide how he did.

Dad's Rap

Clearly this one was heavily produced, but when you hit on comedy genius, you don’t questions how that sausage was made, you just enjoy the result.

Japanese Pranks

You think Ashton Kutcher knows how to prank? Wait until you see these Japanese pranks. You could never get away with this stuff in the States; and that is probably unfortunate, because if you could, we would all be laughing a lot more.

Bad Sports Reporter - Boom Goes the Dynamite

There is bad and then there is this. I am sure we would all feel bad for the guy, if it weren't so flipping funny. Maybe sports casting should be his fallback position (way back).

Chocolate Rain

So odd you can’t stop watching it. This one has been watched millions of times, and it keeps on going. It is tough to describe, and even tougher to explain why you keep watching, but you will.

The Star Wars Kid

One thing is for sure, what this kid doesn't have in ability or special effects, he sure makes up for with effort. One of the great videos that started the notion of viral.

Redneck Stuntman

This guy fancied himself an amateur stunt man. Clearly he has the guts for the job, but it sure doesn't appear that he has the brains.

Funniest videos that embarrasses me as a voter

I understand that the Founding Fathers always intended for the House of Representatives to represent the people of the area that they serve, but it seems to me that we should all be able to do a bit better than this.

Double Rainbow

I am all for rainbows, and frankly, double rainbows are at least twice as nice as their single counterparts, but I am thinking this guy may be taking that thinking to a whole another level. You decide…

Charlie Bit My Finger

I don’t really understand why this is funny; I just know that it is. I guess it has something to do with the innocence of it all, but it is a keeper.

These were great, but I am sure you know even more. I look forward to hearing your favorites.

      I loved Dad's life too. Believe it or not Benny Smalls actually did everything you saw, including the blood.

      That was fun!! My favorite video was Dad Life and my second pick would be Charlie bit my finger. Benny Smalls is out of his mind or did he put ketchup on his head?
