Digital Trends top 5 viral videos of the week september 10 2010We scoured the internets to bring you five videos that made us laugh, and cry, and… well, really just laugh, to be honest. These are not necessarily clips that were posted this week, but just five that we happened upon.


Cache Rules Everything Around Me

If you are wondering exactly what happened to big chunks of your life over the last 15 years, here they are. This video is a brief collection of clips from popular Internet trends over the time span. You’ve already given them hours, days, and weeks of your life, so what is 9 minutes more?

Cruise Ship Vs. Waves (Spoiler, the waves win)

Sometimes you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you. In August, the cruise ship the Pacific Sun ran into a heavy storm near New Zealand.  Hilarity ensued. Well, hilarity for us, it probably sucked for them.

Phil Davidson’s Ridiculously Passionate Stump Speech

Whether it is in fiction or reality, you have all seen it before. The lone man (or woman, but in this case man), facing off against those in power. He is the underdog, the plucky outsider, trying against all odds to rise, and he does so with a fiery and passionate speech. He is Mr. Smith in Washington. He is Martin Luther King Jr. telling people his dream. It is rare, but it happens from time to time, and usually lives forever in history. This is not one of those times.

Spiders on Drugs

What begins as a documentary on the habits of araneae quickly devolves into an episode of The Wire. Stringer Bell is always looking for a new market.

Watermelon attacks woman

If you have ever watched a clip on the Internet before, you can probably guess what happens next in this clip form the TV show The Amazing Race based on the picture at the top of this article. If the challenge was to eat a watermelon, she is doing it wrong. Unless of course there is a speed bonus, in which case she totally rocked it.
