YouTube provides us with hours of entertainment, a few laughs, a few tears and lots of procrastination.

“OMG! Have you seen this video?” 

We’ve all received this text with a link we could not resist clicking on or heard it in a group of friends over lunch or coffee. Sometimes these videos are ones we laugh at for a few minutes and then forget about, but sometimes they are what everyone is talking about for weeks. 

Here, in no particular order, are some of the top viral videos of the 2015-2016 school year. 

1. All of us have seen at least some version of this video. How can you go wrong with Jimmy Kimmel?

2. These two collies hugging it out had us all saying, “Aww!”

3. Let’s not forget when Extra made us cry. Don’t lie. 

4. While we are on the subject of commercials, Android’s new unlikely friends commercial was almost as good as last year’s.

5. And we can all relate to these girls can’t we?

6. When President Obama “Thanks Obama”-ed himself.

7. It’s okay, Pizza Rat. We have all been there. 

8. Matt Bellassai is always relatable, right? Who wants to be an adult anyway?

9. When this couple went through a hundred years together and we all laughed and our hearts melted.

10. And, saving the best for last, Damn Daniel!

Do any of these ring a bell? I bet a few of these brought back a memory or two. Maybe one of them cheered you up after a rough exam or helped you procrastinate a dreadful project. Or maybe they just make you think, “Damn Daniel! Back at it again with the stupid videos!”
