Another year, another round of viral videos. Are we saying you’ll remember these forever? No, because when was the last time you watched Bert and Ernie’s version of “Ante Up,”? (Did you even recall that it existed until just now?) But these nine videos brought joy to the HelloGiggles editors and contributors this year, and we wanted to share that joy with you.
Louis CK’s Saturday Night Live monologue
Piper Weiss: This filled me with joy.
“Apparently” little boy
Amelia Olson: Oh, man.
Apollos “we started slow” Hester
Sundi Rose-Holt: This kid knows how to look at life.
Emma Stone’s lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon
Elena Sheppard: I may have watched this 200 times.
Too Many Cooks
Gina Mei: I’m pretty sure the theme song will never leave my brain, and it was so brilliantly done that it deserves a shout-out.
Munchkin the Shih Tzu
Carly Lane: He looks like an Ewok!
Elizabeth Entenman: It’s simple—just a cat and a piece of paper—but it still makes me go “gllll!” with delight.
Tiny hamsters eating tiny burritos
Caroline Gerdes: Good job, internet.
Parents tell their children they ate their Halloween candy
Kit Steinkellner: Presented without comment.
Teddy Bear the porcupine eats a tiny pumpkin
Jennifer Romolini: This video was so universally beloved that a very academic, very serious ex-boyfriend of mine shared it on my Facebook wall in October. Which pretty much means that Teddy Bear, the happy/squealing/overwhelmingly YOLO animal, transcended everything in 2014.
Jill Layton: My best friend (Anjelah Johnson) is a comedian, and she dedicated her show in my hometown to my mom who passed away three years ago. I watch it every day.
