Off-topic: What are your favorite guilty pleasure videos on YouTube?

This is completely off-topic but I’m curious: What are your favorite guilty pleasure videos on YouTube? That is, videos that you might be embarrassed to admit you watch but that you compulsively watch anyway. Or, heck, maybe you’re not embarrassed at all. Kitten videos? Pimple popping videos? Russian car crash videos? News anchors screwing up? Dudes sitting in the bathtub yelling about 50 Shades of Grey?

Whatever it is, let me know.

I kind of have a little bit of an ulterior motive.

Any of Many A True Nerd’s game playthroughs – but I am rewatching his Fallout 3: Kill Everything run because it makes me so happy.

Videos where people squeeze sebaceous cysts. Or really huge pimples/blackheads. Or really anything involving ppl draining something gross on their body.*

Also – there is an ear, nose and throat doctor who posts vids of various procedures, and they are FASCINATING. There was one where he removed maggots from inside someone’s nose!

(obv not going to embed any of these here, because they can be disturbing)

*My sister and I have a thing for pus. She works at a vet office, and once got a horrible cat bite on her finger – her finger literally filled up with pus, and we took turns poking it with a needle to drain it. Pretty awesome.

Also – anything like this:

I love everything on the Ever After High Youtube channel.

I know it’s designed to sell dolls to tween girls (it’s by Mattel, and the same part of the company that does Monster High), but it’s a series of videos entirely about reinvented fairytale children trying to choose whether to accept their destinies. And it’s all about young girls making decisions for themselves and being friends and generally being adorable and awesome.

This is the first video– at 8.5 minutes, it’s one of the longer ones. They tend to be more like 2-3.

Coming out of mostly-lurker mode, as your timing’s perfect: I needed the distraction from fretting about one of my cats. :-/ My guilty pleasure videos are partly goofy music-related things, partly personal videos of people’s kitties having fun (hopefully these will embed properly):

Entertainingly over-the-top 70s/early 80s music videos like this:

(and 70s/80s light-hearted rap: U Can’t Touch This, Rapper’s Delight, Push It, Ice Ice Baby, etc., which I won’t bother embedding as doubtless everyone’s seen them.)

My guiltiest pleasure is watching this anonymous biker dance to “My Humps” for sheer humor value (slap that rear!):

Cats chasing laser dots inside a kitty running wheel (check out the speed of the last cat in the first video!):

One I just discovered — videos of blind cats/kittens playing is the perfect storm of cute, funny, and fascinating all in one:

(I searched for them after reading Homer’s Odyssey: Adventures of a Blind Wonder Cat, which I highly recommend for anyone that needs a mood/morale boost. Unlike most books about pets, everyone is alive & happy at the end.)

Tracy, are you ok? Hey Tracy are you ok? Are you ok Tracy?
I can tell you’ve been struck by that smooth criminal. If you need more, they’ve made so very many videos…

And I need to provide this as well, especially for you. I have watched it just endlessly.
