The ability to create your own video, plus the ability to FIND and digitise video material online, has, as we all well know now, resulted in an explosion of creativity that simply continues to amaze me.
Reminded me of some of my favourite videos I’ve seen over time.
Check ’em out, yo.
Gary Brolsma’s classic Numa Numa clip.
I can watch this a million times, and I’ll still find it funny a million times. If you have no idea what the Numa Numa craze is, check out the Wikipedia listing.
The absolutely brilliant Honda “Cog” ad. (Quicktime plugin required)
Is it me, or do the British come up with absolutely the best ads ever?
Naturally, the question that always crops up: Is it true it was done without any computer graphics? See the answer at Snopes.com.
Honda’s Civic ad.
Also British, FYI.
Carlton’s Big Ad.
It’s A Big Ad. Very Big Ad.

The Star Wars Kid
How could I have forgotten this guy? He’s practically a cult online legend – albeit reluctantly, of course.
If I can remember any more, I’ll add them here. Let me know of your favourites too….
