#15: Flying Eagle POVIt's one thing to imagine this or to see a CGI rendering from the LOTR movies, but it's another thing altogether to see it for real.
#14: Dream of the 90's - Portlandia on IFCOk, so this is not safe for work or safe for kids, but as a teenager of the 90's, I can relate to a lot of this. I just wish I watched this before going to DrupalCon in Portland back in May ... it would have explained a lot.
#13: Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard NimoyBattle of the Spocks. A commercial, but to hear Nimoy sing the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins again is priceless.
#12: Most Expensive Starbucks DrinkThis should probably be stricken from the list for its hedonistic and consumer values, but if you were wondering how much you could spend on a Starbucks drink, look no further.
#11: Two Monkeys Demand Equal PayGood to see that humans aren't the only selfish species.
#10: Feynman on trainsMy wife is ahead of me on appreciating Feynman and how he can make previously unapproachable subjects not only approachable, but understandable to the point where you could teach it. I enjoyed this talk on trains and had no idea they worked like this. Never really thought about it before, but now I get it.
#9: Chompy the SharkYeah, I couldn't paddle fast enough and never (ever) go into that body of water again.
#8: Billy Joel singing with a student accompanistIt took some stones to request this, but the guy has chops and the end result is pure magic.
#7: Speed Painter on Anderson CooperI had to watch this multiple times.
#6: Volvo Trucks Stunt with Jean-Claude Van DammeCrazy stunt. Of course, Chuck Norris had to top that.
#5: Latte for SharShar
SNL has really stepped up their game this year with some great comedy, including this great parody skit on the new Starbucks Verismo system. This video is no longer available on Hulu, but it looks like you can watch it on Vimeo.
#4: Almost PizzaAnother SNL gem. This is available on YouTube ... for now. I miss Bill Hader & Kristin Wiig.
#3: What Does the Fox Say?I'm sure I lose some hipster points for this, but it is so great and bonus points for being something I can play (& dance) with my kids.
#2: New Hotspurs ManagerWhen NBC got the rights to the Premier League, they made a promo video with Jason Sudeikis.
#1: Jaws recutI will never look at Jaws the same way again and if anyone ever brings up the Jaws movie around me, I will start laughing (at least on the inside). Sooo good.
I created a playlist of the 13 videos available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.
