Oh Viral Videos, how you cheer up our days. We can’t talk about television and movies around the water cooler anymore because thanks to streaming everyone is seeing things at different times. And the news moves too fast for any of us to keep up. But Viral Videos have saved water cooler culture. Thanks to Yanni and Laurel and dancing gorillas and people getting stuck in elevators, there will always be something for all of us to talk about at the dinner table. Having a shitty day? Just watch someone else having an even worse day. It’s a better pick me up than a trip to Starbucks.
This year we continued to have an unending stream of great videos to share. Luckily for you, the Interrobang has a great memory and has distilled an entire year of viral weirdness into 15 videos that are the best of the best. Last year we included a bonus section of Trumps 5 greatest gaffes recorded on video but this year there’s something crazier than Trump to talk about– his followers. It was the year of the shockingly racist white people video. More white people got caught on camera being blatantly racist, earning themselves nicknames that will brand them as such forever. Or at least till something nuttier comes along.
Animals, children, celebrities, whacked out white people – all ended up going viral before this year is done.
This is the perfect way to recover from your day-before-New-Year’s-Eve hangover. Enjoy and vote for your favorite. It’s true that there are no winners when it comes to YouTube, Live Leak and World Star, but vote anyway.

These Red Sox fans captured the hearts of sports fans the world over with their nonsensical scheme of keeping a banner hostage that no one wanted back.

2018 was also the year of low key racist white ladies harassing and calling the cops on black people. Luckily for the internet they were all able to be given alliterated names which made everything a lot more fun for everyone involved:
