Classic Internet Vidz


lofi posts to relax/study to
This is a thread for the posting and appreciation of classic internet videos. Nothing new, just the classics that you remember and love.

Here's the rules:

  • All videos must be at least 10 years old to qualify.
  • Naturally, as we post older stuff, we will encounter ideas and language that have aged poorly. These things were wrong then and wrong now. Be aware of what you're posting and remember the audience we have here. Avoid posting or spoiler things too far afoul of modern sensibilities.
  • Videos should have become popular specifically on the internet, even if they were produced elsewhere. For instance, a weird clip from a local news show that went viral would count, but a clip from a movie that had no further internet culture/meme context would not.
  • Let everybody get in on the fun - please only post one video per thread reply.
Let's see some cool vidz, y'all!

(I'll get us going below.)

Guy On A Buffalo! I swear this video made me laugh until I cried the first time I saw it and the music is so catchy. I still watch it every year or so.

Needs a didn't-age-well CW for racism. No slurs or anything, but it does have a riff on some tired stereotypes.

EDIT: whoops, missed the one-per-post rule. I'll be back later, then!

End of the world was going to be my second post. Instead have whatever this was. It's been 22 years and I'm still not sure.

(Hi Guy)
End of the world was going to be my second post. Instead have whatever this was. It's been 22 years and I'm still not sure.

Ah, 10 minutes of watching two stick people attempt to take a rocket to the moon, exploding watermelons, “let’s play toss the H Bomb!”, counting how many times the Earth explodes… right in the junior high.

I want to post David Blaine Street Magic but I’d need to rewatch it to quality check it first.

I actually saw Group X in concert in Atlanta once. That was a total trip, a small venue, but they put on a great show.

A young woman standing near me flashed them during the show, which was a great bit of synergy I thought later.

this video is almost old enough to vote

Edit: since the video won't display, it's They're taking the Homeboys to Laser Tag

I don't know about you, but for me, Fabulous Secret Powers is the Platonic ideal of Web 1.0 video:

EDIT: Dammit, no embedding! What's going on?

You'll either find this incredibly annoying or it'll get permanently stuck in your head for the rest of your life. Or both! There's a lot of ways this could go.
