I love YouTube because you can go there and find a video to suit any mood you are in. If you're happy, go find a laughing cat video, if you're sad you can find the ASPCA commercial to watch. But, what I usually do when I'm sad is find funny videos because I generally don't like to be sad for very long. So, here are 7 videos to make you LOL instead of cry.
1. "History of Japan" by Bill Wurtz
My high school history teacher screened this video for my class during the World War II section of the class. I have watched this video approximately ten times since. The narrator tells a very informal version of Japan’s history up until modern times.
2."This is what happens when you reply to spam email" James Veitch by TED
I found this gem buried in a mound of serious and highly informative TED Talks. James narrates to us what happened when he emailed back a random spam email and the result is pretty hilarious.
3. "How to trick people into thinking you’re good looking" by Jenna Marbles
This is the video that put Jenna Marbles on the map and for good reason. In this video, Jenna shows you how you, too can trick people into thinking that you are good looking, with the assistance of a few cosmetic items and
4. "I Drove Off a Cliff…Again" by Gabbie Hanna
I love Gabbie’s videos because she can turn anything into a funny story. In this video, she tells the story of the time that she didn’t listen to her parents and then almost died because of her bad driving skills. It sounds very boring and sad but the way Gabbie tells it will have you laughing out loud until you pass out.
5. "The Spider Who Couldn’t Hide" by Chad-Michael Simon
This video is short and hilarious. I am terrified of spiders but this is just really funny and a good example of object permanence.
6. "how is prangent formed" by J.T. Sexkik
It amazes me how many ways people can misspell one word. It scares me even more that the word in question relates to being in charge of another human for the next eighteen years and they can’t even it spell correctly.
7.'"FIRST REPUBLICAN DEBATE HIGHLIGHTS: 2015" — A Bad Lip Reading of The Republican Debate' by Bad Lip Reading
Personally, I think that the entire 2016 election and all of its debates was a joke, but this “Bad Lip Reading” just verifies it.
I really hope at least one of these videos makes someone laugh because they all make me laugh.
