Best. Videos. Ever.

2007 has been a year of amazing viral videos. The folks at Time compiled their list the best ones. However, I've never been a fan of dancing prisoners or cats playing the piano. With that in mind, I am proud to present my collection of the best viral videos of 2007.

First up, leave it to the folks at The Onion to make everyone wish that we were all poor this holiday season.



We've also seen women in bikinis shape the course of political discourse this year by proclaiming their love for a certain candidate. Quite frankly, I can only hope this continues into 2008 because God knows most of the candidates themselves aren't very interesting. Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney all had their own gyrating women, but let's face it - Taryn Southern's "Hott 4 Hill" blew them all away.



2007 also saw videos become a rallying point for change, the way Woodstock was a generation ago. Just take a look at This Is For The Soldiers:



In addition to all of that, 2007 was the year when advertisers looked to consumers to generate commercials for them; such as what the Detroit Metro Visitors & Convention Bureau did with their podcast contest.



2007. The year of the best internet videos ever.
