7 Classic YouTube Videos

Recently, I went on a deep dive into YouTube with two friends of mine looking for old videos we recalled from our childhood. While very strange looking back on them, they certainly still have a sentimental comedic flair to them despite the fact that some of them have not aged well.

1. How to Be Ninja

A true classic from the time, How to be Ninja highlights the simplicity of the old youtube community. Although it has not aged well in some respects (it does employ the use of a controversial slur), a great deal of the video still retains it's original comedic value.

2. Charlie the Unicorn

Looking back at this video, I was simply annoyed. But when it came out, you couldn't walk the halls of your school without hearing someone say "Candy mountain Charlie!"

3. Shoes

Looking back at this video, I can honestly look back at my younger self from 2007 and ask "what the hell." Shoes is a trip I wasn't ready to go back on.

4. Trolololo

Straight out of 2010, this was one among many of the first "memes" to be popularized. I cannot stand listening to this now as much as I did then, but it certainly did leave it's impact.

5. Trapped in the Drive Thru

A classic that was shared among all of my young friends, Trapped in the Drive Thru is a classic YouTube parody that nobody could get enough of.

6. Like a Boss

The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island has had their fair share of viral videos including "I'm on a Boat," "I just had sex," and more. However, this one spread around my school like wildfire.

7. Chocolate Rain

Best for last: Chocolate Rain by Tay Zonday. A true embodiment of the YouTube classics next to "Charlie Bit my Finger," no one can forget this video. What great vocals.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
