The Most Awesome Viral Videos of 2008, curated by Videogum

Videogum senior editor Gabe Delahaye writes,

If you were able to make it to the Gummy Awards on Monday night, then you saw our tribute to the best viral videos of the year. Now, this is comprehensive but in no way complete, because that would be exhausting. So there were plenty of great videos out there that didn't make it into this montage. But even without Drunk History or the Zach Galafianakis Absolut Vodka Ads, without Baby Preacher, Lil' Bill O'Reilly, or the kids rapping about the election to T.I.'s "Whatever You Like," and probably a dozen other honorable mentions, I feel confident that you will still find this to be a captivating, thorough, and most of all HEARTBREAKING tribute to this year in internet.


  1. I get 404 errors for all the links in the write-up. Not sure if it’s my end or what.

    Fairly weak montage…but they ended strong.

  2. omg, i love zach g. — that video was so good you have to question whether it was staged or not until the very end makes it clear.

  3. I got such a kick out of that video today. Wolfie even danced with me for the ska band’s rendition of “Jesus is my Friend.” The fridge scene and Bill O’Reilly are just too priceless for words.
