(RNN) – Before the selection for the best viral video of the year is announced, let's reflect on what happened to us in the last 12 months.
We went crazy over a song we couldn't understand, performed by someone who – in his words – briefly hated Americans. Carly Rae Jepsen carried the torch for passive aggressive women still in search for gentlemen. Mr. Rogers somehow found a way to get cooler, even though he has been dead for some time.
And finally, any animal that playfully wreaked havoc on their owners' lives instantly became the "cutest thing ever" as long as there was a smartphone with a photo app within reach.
And who says technology is ruining the world?
VIRAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
We're not going to mess around like those folks at the Academy Awards and wait until the end of the show to reveal the big winner.
Although it didn't generate a stupefying number of views, the twin infants dancing in sync to their father's guitar was just too cute to resist. And it never got annoying, which was high on the criteria list.
Anyone who doesn't adore or at least appreciate this video should have their membership to the human race revoked.
MUSIC VIDEO OF THE YEAR
This was a close race between Psy and venerable Ms. Jepsen, both equally annoying after 20 views. But you have to show respect for the most-watched YouTube video in history.
Of course, something will eventually eclipse the popularity of Gangnam Style, but after soaking in this hot mess for six months, it's scary to think what that video could look like.
POLITICAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
In an election year, this was another tough choice: Dumb politicians vs. people who say dumb things about politicians.
Oh mercy, what to do? Do we pick the ragingly funny lip reading of the political debates? Do we pick Samuel L. Jackson's impassioned (and vulgar) cry for voters to make an informed decision? How about any of the clips from the two candidates themselves?
Actually, we went with the words of a 4-year-old, who perfectly summed up the entire election in less than 30 seconds.
ANIMAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
The goat in this video is somewhat reminiscent of the younger cousin you had to put up with on holidays, family reunions or that particularly odd weekend when his parents were going through a "timeout."
This animal is superbly annoying to everyone around him, but adorable to those of us who do not have to put up with him.
INSPIRATIONAL VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Be honest. You and your friends were betting on the over/under that Felix Baumgartner would get torn to thousands of pieces when he jumped from space.
But he pulled it off, and his historic feat was a brief reminder that there are still great things to discover for those who dare.
EMBARASSING MOMENT VIDEO OF THE YEAR
What do you get when you mix cold weather, a half-naked man's bravado and a dare that (possibly) included alcohol?
Well, you get one heck of a bruise to post on Twitter. The lesson here is it's always best to stick your toe in the water before you dive.
EVERY MAN'S FANTASY VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Millions of males who were taught that it's impolite to stare forgot that advice – and just about everything else useful in their brain – after three minutes of a sprinter named Michelle Jenneke.
Seriously, this is how she warms up for a race? The stuff she does in her spare time could probably break up marriages.
EVERY WOMAN'S FANTASY VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Now that we've fed one stereotype, we will proceed on to killing another.
Bodyform's response to one man is probably what every woman has wanted to tell every man they've ever met, but did not. No, not out of reserve, but because they all knew the male brand of species was just too limited to understand.
CUTEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR
No one is going to give it to you straight like a big sister, and this one is about as blunt as you're going to find anywhere.
Well, the kids are British, so maybe that has something to do with it. They've had to deal with a lot during the last 200 years.
SCARIEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR
And finally, we reintroduce you to OAG, which is short for "The girl no guy ever wants to deal with."
If there's anything scarier than marriage these days, it's marriage after knowing someone for 36 hours.
