The Internet gave us some seriously funny stuff during 2012. Besides the ridiculous memes (McKayla’s not impressed, anybody?), we also got some truly hilarious YouTube videos. And while some of them may have gotten played out a little too quickly, they’ll always have a special place in our hearts as some of the funniest videos we’ve ever watched.
So what were the best funny videos of 2012? It’s hard to select only a few, but I came up with my own picks for what really made me laugh. And when I say laugh, I really mean embarrass myself in front of all my co-workers because I was practically crying while giggling into my armpit and trying not to make too much noise. Check out what I think are 10 funniest videos from 2012… and leave your picks in the comments!
Best Celebrity Video: Kristen Bell’s Sloth Meltdown
You wouldn’t think that sloths could affect a person this much. You also wouldn’t think it could be so hilarious to watch a celebrity cry. But it is. Oh boy, it is. Kristen Bell’s adorable reaction to this sloth gift is pretty much the cutest/funniest reaction to anything ever.
Best Video Turned Meme: Overly Attached Girlfriend
When I first watched this, I really thought this girl was a legit Justin Bieber fan (what? Some of them are crazy!). But then I realized that she’s just an amazing genius. This video will never stop being awesome, and her meme will always live on. Her other videos were pretty funny too, but nothing can compare to the original.
Best Pretend Rap Song Video: Milk In My Sippy Cup!
There are a lot of funny “rap songs” on YouTube, but for me, this one takes the cake. I mean, first of all, this baby is adorable. Second of all, it’s just too weird and awesome to ignore. I’ve listened to it as though it were an actual song. Don’t judge me.
Best Prank Video: I Told My Kid I Ate All Their Halloween Candy Again
I love these Jimmy Kimmel pranks, I really do. I feel sort of sorry for the teary-eyed kids who are getting exploited for Internet fame, but the funniness outweighs the guilt. These kids are priceless.
Best Sh*t People Say Video: Original Sh*t Girls Say
I’ve been following the Sh*t Girls Say Twitter account for forever, so obviously I was thrilled when they came out with a video. It’s basically perfect. Of course, this caused about a million copycat videos, and we learned about the things everyone said, from “nobody” to fashion girls. This one will always be the reigning queen.
Best Animal Song Video: Baby Bunny
I’m not going to lie, this song is weird… and that’s probably why I love it so much. Although it may not be everyone’s favorite video, it’s definitely one of mine. I can’t help but giggle and sing along every time I play it.
Best Baby Video: 11 Month Old Twins Dancing
If you’ve never seen this, watch it right now. It’s so, so amazing. It is impossible not to smile or laugh or feel warm and gooey all over when you watch this. These little girls need to grow up to be YouTube stars, they just need to.
Best Celebrity Video: Fifty Shades Of Blue with Selena Gomez
This video is proof that Selena Gomez has some serious comedic abilities. I was never on the 50 Shades of Gray bandwagon, so I was always up for anything that made fun of it. And Selena does this perfectly. Can this be real?
Best Fake TV Show: The BAMF Girls Club
This trailer for The BAMF Girls Club is so clever and funny that it’s hard not to wish it were a legit TV show. I love the portrayals of Katniss, Hermione, Michonne, Bella, Buffy and Lizbeth. So perfect!
Best Animal Video: The Hunt For Pikachu
I want to marry these dudes a little bit. Trust me, you don’t need to be into Pokemon to appreciate this adorable Pikachu video. It’s sheer genius and I’m obsessed with it.
