Hello again, Monday. Nice to meet you, where’ve you been? I could show you incredible things.
You see Monday, it’s been a week since we last saw you, and we knew you were trouble when you walked in. But while we’d love to say we are never, ever, EVER getting back together, we’ll just have to shake it off and realise we’ve got a blank space, baby. And we’ll write, well, a list of our favourite videos from the week.
Sorry. We got carried away fairly swiftly there (nudge, wink). On with the videos!
Evan Edinger – Who’s Your YouTube Valentine 2016?
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while we’re very much #foreveralone (because we’re a website, and it’s very difficult for websites to have relationships), we’ve been having loads of fun figuring out who our YouTube Valentine is, thanks to the very punny Evan Edinger. We’re not going to lie, the first time we tried this we managed to get stood up, but once we had dusted ourselves off and finished crying into our coffee we managed to get ourselves a fair few dates. And oh, what dates they were.
So go! Have fun, and marvel at the sheer amount of organisation that Evan had to go through to get over 40 YouTubers involved in this video!
Space House – Bird – RageNineteen
Ah, that moment when you’re in a space house and suddenly there’s a bird. We’ve all been there, right?
Yeah, us neither. In this truly bizarre short animation, Jamie Spicer-Lewis walks (flies?) us through all the possibilities of what you could do if you found a bird in a space house. Because you never know when that might come in useful.
No spoilers here, so you’ll just have to watch to find out the oh so slightly dark ending. Just be aware, we’re now slightly scared of pigeons.
“Real Women” – Zoe London
We always like a good debate here at TenEighty, and Zoe London has kicked off a very interesting one with her opinions on the term “real women”. It’s difficult to do justice to Zoe’s thoughts by paraphrasing, so have a listen to what she has to say and add your voice to the conversation!
It’s always heartening when there’s a good discussion happening in the comments section, and this video has created one of those rare situations where reading the comments is a genuinely interesting and enjoyable experience. For that alone, we’d give Zoe a round of applause!
Jazz Is Like Drake – SuperSamStuff
There’s nothing like a good old chatty vlog, and that’s just what we’ve got from vlogger/detective/internet-less student Sam Saffold-Geri this week. And while we don’t think vlogging in the dark is quite going to catch on (sorry, Sam!) we definitely appreciate the hair-based compliments (thanks, Sam!).
Despite being 100% confirmed Internet Beings, we understand Sam’s love for CDs and totally understand the frustrations that come with Spotify, but having said that, there’s nothing like having whatever music you’d like at the tips of your fingers. Personally, we enjoy playing the theme from Jaws whenever someone’s carrying a particularly full bowl of soup. (Der-ner. Der-ner. Dernerdernerdernder!! Just us? Moving on…)
Rapper Reacts To The Fine Brothers – Dan Bull
Remember that time when the Fine Brothers invoked the wrath of the internet over all things React? Can you believe it was only in the last week? Well, we know it seems like a long time ago but we have to give some serious kudos to Dan Bull for this seriously on point reaction. There aren’t many people who can not only put across an eloquent opinion, but do it within a speedily created rap. Dan Bull is one of those people. Even if he did use a little tiny bit of creative license in the pronunciation of the word “meme”, although we secretly quite like “may-may”.
Even though the uproar over React World has mostly blown over, we still recommend going back and watching Dan’s video. It really is very good!
Still looking for more to watch?
Pancake day is creeping ever closer, so who better to show us how to make pancakes than the lovely Sorted Food guys? And how better to be tell us how to make pancakes than when also skiing down a mountain or having a snowball fight? Never a dull moment, eh?
And finally, Jack Howard kicked off an old school YouTube debate about, well, YouTube. His original video has inspired a series of video responses (remember those?!) from all sorts of YouTube-y types, and it’s great to hear lots of people pitching in on the conversation.
