Viral Video Wednesday – Pork’n’ Beans

This week’s Viral Video Wednesday was inspired by Bermudaonion’s link in last week’s comments.

It’s amazing how many of us have seen the same videos… many of those videos we seem to not even remember ever watching, but we know them. It’s been a fun week finding the vids for this week, too. Some of them I’d never seen or heard of, which made me feel a bit stupid like “OMG! What rock have I been under? How did I miss this!” But most of them I knew. Some of them are my new favorites, AND my kids are getting into helping me find new videos… particularly my 15-year-old who has definitely ruined me on a couple of these. AND we are all still singing Numa Numa here (of course, my children are still playing them and finding new ones).

So, on to the vids:

Today’s VVW is a fun puzzle… What do the following videos have in common?

Remember Gary from last week? He’s back this week for a second appearance! Will we ever get away from him, really? it is Viral Video Wednesday, after all!

The suspense-building LOOK from a Prairie Dog:

When showing off your Ninja moves, make sure they didn’t wax-on the floor last night:

Mad scientist at play in a field with Diet Coke (we actually did this at home, and the kids tried the soda afterwards… it tasted nasty!):

Warning! Mentally unstable Britney-crazed fan who lost his meds (R-rated for language) Say it with me, “Leave Britney Alone!!!“:

I personally believe some-uh.. like such as and the Iraq and such as… HUH?:

The funniest 6 minutes you will ever see! Remember how many of these you have done! (I just totally ripped off the “more info” on the site):

Chocolate Rain! *breathe* made me lots of money from Dr. P *breathe*:

You know, there will be an entire VVW dedicate to this video in the future… but today, it’s simply a piece of the puzzle:

Weird, hypnotic… a bit of a WTF… but all the same, a piece right in the middle of our puzzle:

Quite possibly one of the most disturbing… not to mention addictive… videos I’ve ever seen (Warning: R-rated for some language):

The number one most obnoxious video ever made. It makes me want to shove pencils into my ears all the way to the erasers! (Warning: more than 20 seconds can cause psychotic episodes):

ROFLMAO… never saw this one before, but thought it fit… consider it a clue:

And the last piece of the puzzle… “Charlie! Wake up you silly sleepy-head!” ( :-D ):

Now, put all these pieces together and you get the following Weezer’s Pork ‘n’ Beans video:


 

One of the many things I love about Weezer’s video is that a lot of the viral vids are of people who have really been ripped up by commenters, fellow video-makers, comedians and Talk show hosts, etc. Now, I’m not feeling sorry for them… many of them got spots on National television, record deals, and even a spot on a Weezer video. :-D But in this video they get a chance to thumb their collective nose at their critics. I like that.

Now, I know there are TONS! of viral videos that I missed, the video is so full of them that I couldn’t name them all. So here’s your chance to post the missing ones, either here in the comment section or… even better… on your own blog as your own VVW post ;-)

I leave you with this Numa Numa – South Park Style video Sammi, my 15-year-old, found:

Viral Video Wednesday -Numa Numa

One of my favorite posts I’ve done on Mt. TBR was Fred Discovery, in which I shared a few fun videos and asked you to share your favorites with me. Julie offered Fart in the Duck, fyreflybooks posted Where the Hell is Matt?, and Suey confessed an addiction to VlogBrothers. It was a lot of fun sharing our vids, so I want to make it a regular thing on Mt. TBR.

I enjoyed the post and kept going back to it to watch the vids again and again. If anyone wants to join me in VVW, post your link in the comments. It’d be so much fun to make a meme of it! I’d love to see what y’all find and share :-D

And now, my first Viral Video Wednesday: The Numa Numa Dance

Okay, so Numa Numa isn’t exactly a new Viral Video, but it’s fun to see what all has been done with Numa Numa. First let’s start with the original Numa Numa video… not Gary, but the REAL music video by the Moldovan band, O-Zone. The actual name of the song is “Dragostea Din Tei”.

Then, along came Gary Brolsma, aka The Numa Numa Guy, who posted this video on Newgrounds.com in 2004…

This video is the 2nd most viewed viral video in history second only to The Star Wars Kid, according to Wikepedia.This vid got Gary on ABC, NBC, and VH1, who listed him as Number 1 on the Top 40 Internet Superstars (I didn’t even know there was a list!). He got his own website titled… wait for it… Gary Brolsma & New Numa

Wait, New Numa? Yes, Gary made a new Numa video:

However, this drew some flak from video viewers everywhere, because Gary decided if Milli Vanilli could get rich by lip synching, why couldn’t he? Mr. Safety made this parody called, “I Will Not Pay”

Evidently Numa has paid Gary well, because he held a contest “New Numa Fatty Contest”, paying the Grand Prize winner $25,000 with a $10,000 and $5,000 prize winners, as well. (List of the winners for your perusing pleasure)

Other bizarre but hilarious Numa Numa videos:

Kitties, Meerkats, and what the hell is that thing??!

Win over a hot chick doing the Numa Dance:

Who knew all we had to do was play Numa Numa outside the caves to get Osama?!:

Yoda does the Numa Numa, too:

If you want to graduate from the 5th grade at this school, you had to Numa Numa:

Numa Numa Navy:

WTF? Numa Numa on (Foreign) Idol? OOOOH…. I sooo wish Simon was there!

Spanish… um, amigos de Dorotea?… Doing the Numa:

They are doing Numa Numa all over the world:
Israeli Numa, Japanese Numa, Chinese Numa, Vietnamese Numa (gotta show this to Maggie), Indonesian Numa, Korean Numa, Thai Numa, Spanish Numa

In case you’ve ever wanted to know what they were singing, here’s an English language version:

AND, if all THAT wasn’t enough…. How ’bout Numa Opera!:

There are Lord of the Rings Numa, Pirates of the Caribbean Numa, Shrek Numa, silly kids in class Numa, If you’re not already ready to drive a phillips number six into your eardrums from Numa-overload, go nuts with a Numa Numa search!
