Here's a rundown of the top ten humor clips to have ever appeared on YouTube. FYI: I didn't make this up. This information comes straight from the mega-sharing site itself; you can see the report here.
In May of 2007, a British father uploaded a clip of his two young sons, Harry, age 3, and Charlie, age 1. In the video, a teething Charlie bites his brother's finger, causing Harry to cry. Maybe it's the adorable British accent, or maybe it's the devilish but beautific smile Charlie gives after chomping down on Harry's finger, but the clip is undeniably cute and funny.
The clip quickly went viral and became one of the Top 10 Viral Kid Videos ever uploaded. In fact, the clip briefly became the number one most watched video on all of YouTube. Today, with over five hundred million views, it remains the most viewed YouTube video, that is not a professional music video, of all time.
The boys' internet fame brought real-life fame as well. Thanks to their father's continued uploads on their own channel, the family could afford to buy a larger house thanks to sales of "Charlie Bit My Finger" t-shirts, mugs, calendars, and more.
As hard as it may be to believe, this completely silly video about "tooting" in the tub has received 256,058,298 hits since it was uploaded. Yes, really! It was created by Flowgo, a group that specializes in "Cute Toons, Funny Videos, and Big Smiles." It features an animated bathtub with two babies in it; the babies faces are real photographs of infants, and they're "singing" along with a jingle about passing gas in a bathtub.
What's funnier than seeing a man get hit in the junk? Apparently, not much, according to the 241,006,047 people who have watched this video of a dad getting accidentally kicked in the crotch by his toddler daughter. The best part is listening to the mom, who is filming the scene, as she giggles behind the camera.
This video is absolutely hilarious. In six minutes, comedian Judson Laipply performs a medley of dance moves to twelve popular songs. Laipply covers everything from Elvis's "You Ain't Nothin' But A Hounddog" to disco, heavy metal, the Robot, the Moonwalk, the Hammer Dance, and more. At one time, this video was the number one most viewed video, the number one rated video, and the most discussed video on YouTube, and with good reason. It's nearly impossible not to smile when watching it!
This is a fake music video created by comedy hip hop group, The Lonely Island. The song features R&B singer Akon, performing with The Lonely Island members Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone. You can also catch cameo appearances by celebrities Akiva Schaffer, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively and John McEnroe.
This sketch appeared on Saturday Night Live as a digital short in 2011. As the title suggests, the song is about some dorky guys who are very excited because they finally got to have sex. Funny stuff!
