Digital Trends’ top 5 viral videos for December 31, 2010

We are back with a new selection of videos to tickle your fancy. These videos are not all from this week, but they all made us laugh or caused our jaws to drop recently. Enjoy!

No top 5 videos next week due to our ongoing CES coverage, but we will return in two weeks.

A Blizzard, Seen Over 20 Hours

As you may have heard, or perhaps even experienced, the Northeast recently received a bit of snow. A whole, huge, bit of snow. Several feet of it. So, ok, probably more than a bit.

Even after seeing several of these, even after months have passed, no one is entirely sure if these are meant to be taken seriously or as jokes. Either way, they are creepy and kind of funny.
