Top 10 YouTube videos you’ve never seen

You’ve seen “Obama Girl,” OK Go’s treadmill exploits, the Evolution of Dance, prisoners dancing to Michael Jackson, the “Leave Britney Alone!” guy and “Dick in a Box.” Maybe you’ve even spent some time f*cking Matt Damon or Ben Affleck.

But now it’s time for some truly epic, possibly obscure and inevitably offbeat videos that you may have missed. Only one rule: no animals on skateboards. Oh, and I promise not to Rickroll you.

1 “Rejected Jokes,”
[youtube.com/rejectedjokes]
This endearing and self-deprecating guy was a writer for “Saturday Night Live,” “Letterman” and a few other comedy shows. He now makes videos with laugh lines that were tossed in the trash: some of which are decent, others less so. Sometimes, he has B-list guests embarrassing themselves.

2″A Beginners Guide To Faking Your Death On The Internet”
by user “lukeuea”
[youtube.com/watch?v=ZXUHy8vrVY0]
Feeling unwanted? Unimportant? All you need is a Livejournal and a really twisted mind (check and check). Try looking to the ‘ol series of tubes for validation: it’s BOUND to work!

3″David Sedaris delivers a pizza” by user “weaknights”
[youtube.com/watch?v=w0DUdpmgmz4]
If you’re familiar with Sedaris’s writing style and vocal tones, you’ll find this short parody: in which delivery boy Sedaris gives a lengthy monologue with overwrought metaphors to an unfortunate customer: quite funny.

4 “King of Glory”
by user “jonnyitsbollocks”
[youtube.com/watch?v=-fgZAmO7iAM]
It may be a sad indication of my state of mind, but there are few things that can bring a smile to my face as quickly as Stephen Colbert dancing. This is an outtake from the quirky (and cancelled) Comedy Central show “Strangers with Candy” and it lives up to the standard jazz-hands quotient (SJQ).

5″Joss Whedon’s Equality Now speech”
by user “The Hey”
[youtube.com/watch?v=cYaczoJMRhs]
Those with nerd street cred will recognize Whedon as the helm of such immortal television classics as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and the forthcoming “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” (I am NOT kidding: Google it). Here, he gives an amazing, warm and funny speech about gender and television.

6″Avenue Jew”
by user “chrisryder123″
[youtube.com/watch?v=VKW7iL3r0_w]
This video is described as A Mix of ‘Avenue Q’ and ‘Fiddler on the Roof.'” Enough said, my musically-and-hilarity-inclined friends?

7″George Lucas in Love”
by user “annasha1986”
[youtube.com/watch?v=STRja-ABexU]
This is a fan film taking the “Shakespeare in Love” approach to Lucas’s time at USC.

8″You Suck at Photoshop”
by user “MyDamnChannel” at
[youtube.com/watch?v=U_X5uR7VC4M]
A sarcastic dude who has way too much time on his hands shows you how to use Photoshop.

9″Zuiikin English”
by user “TheSkillfulAbbot”
[youtube.com/watch?v=miSADG9yihM]
Learn English while doing aerobics. Actually, just watch girls dance to the irresistible beat of “I have a bad case of diarrhea!” Don’t look at me like that. I’m not immature. Your mom is.

10″I’m F*cking Obama”
by user “hmatkin”
[youtube.com/watch?v=skIlZflDs9Y]
Seeing Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel sing about f*cking Matt Damon and Ben Affleck is a prerequisite for this politically-themed parody. This clip, like so many before it, proves just how awesome it is to splice completely random clips together entirely out of context.Pointless? Yes. But it’s so…Hillary-ous. Can I cot
