Viral Video of the Week: Installment 15

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday (or, as it’s referred to now: “That one two-day stretch every year where we eat way too much turkey on Thursday and then trample-over one another for Christmas gifts on Friday”). You know, despite the fact that we find a new way to degrade the human race each year; I don’t really have a problem with the whole “Black Friday” thing. Sure, it’s gotten a little out of hand – but there’s another issue that effortlessly overshadows this one: Christmas music in November. I mean seriously people, can we not at least wait until after Thanksgiving? This is seriously getting out of hand; before we know it, we’ll be celebrating Christmas in December – the next Christmas, that is. Trust me, if we do not stop this blatant and unwarranted encroachment of “mixing and a mingling and a jingling swing” stuff, we’re going to start another nuclear war. That is a fact.

That being said, I feel like the least I can do is give Christmas music a little taste of its own medicine: I’m going to post a Black Friday video in December. Yeah, this is getting serious now.

You know, I usually don’t like those Improv Everywhere dudes, but I’m willing to sacrifice my YouTube standards for the greater good of the cause #KeepChristmasMusicInDecember (sorry if that hashtag’s a little long, I’m still getting a hang of Twitter).

This next video might require some background information, so if you’re a little confused, just look it up yo’ dang self! I’m not your Encyclopedia Britannica!

Now here’s a hot-button issue that just screams “Viral Video of the Week fodder:” gay marriage. Look, I know that both sides have their valid arguments – those for gay marriage claim it’s an issue equal rights and the right to happiness, those against it claim that it’s “just sorta weird, you know?” So yeah, it’s a pretty tough issue to tackle!

**Note: I guess I should take this time to apologize; by not posting an anti-gay marriage video, I might be presenting an unbalanced argument. I really did try to find one, however, when you type “anti-gay marriage” in YouTube, all that comes up are videos of Mel Gibson shouting profanities at children.

Hey! Who’s hungry?!

OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE CUTEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN:

The best part of that video? The most recent comment (as of Thursday November 29, 2012): “Its need to be fried.” Deep stuff, JimJimJimNL, deep stuff.

Alright guys, that’s going to do it for this week’s installment; I hope you all have a great week!
