The word YouTube brings into mind viral videos and movie trailers. But it is also a great place for people who want to showcase their talent but don’t have the means. Over the years we have seen many creative and interesting videos. We have prepared a list of videos we like. Here is a list of top 10 YouTube videos :
1. Where the Hell is Matt? 2008
It is said you are not a true YouTuber if you haven’t seen this video. This video was shot in 42 countries, took 14 months to make and has more than 40 million views. In this video Matt travels different countries and performs a simple dance step. It made him an internet celebrity. There 3 more “Where the hell is Matt?” videos released in the year 2005, 2006 and 2012. Do check these videos if you like the above video.
2. Her Morning Elegance
This is a beautiful stop motion music video by Oren Lavie which got him a Grammy nomination. It features a girl walking, travelling and even swimming while asleep on a bed. The entire video is made using stop motion technique. The music score is also not bad. The video is quite popular and has more than 20 million views.
3. Human Skateboard by PES
You will watch the entire video without realising that it is an advertisement for shoes. As the name suggest a guy uses another guy as a skateboard performing various tricks that are not easy even on an actual skateboard. You can watch higher quality version on YouTube.
4. Western Spaghetti by PES
This is a very creative stop motion video. A delicious spaghetti but with a twist. Instead of eatables, toys are used. Even the flame is not real. The best part is when the rubik’s cube is cut into smaller pieces.
5. Dragon Baby
A baby fights a dragon(toy). Dressed in Kill Bill style costume the baby shows impressive karate moves. The video is so well made that it is hard to believe it is all visual effect.
6. OK Go – Here It Goes Again
You don’t need a big budget to make a great music video. Just a couple of treadmills and lots of creativity.
7. Paint Exploding at 15,000fps
It is fascinating to watch paint bottles explode in ultra slow motion. Watch the entire video. It only gets better as it progresses. The were so many good slow motion videos that it was hard for us to select one. Another good one is Popping Popcorn in slow motion. For more such videos visit the YouTube channel called ThwSlowMoGuys.
8. Somebody That I Used to Know – Walk of the Earth
Five people and one guitar. No other instrument. Together they produce excellent music. We really liked the voice of female singer. The video has staggering 150 million views which speaks for itself.
This short video was an experiment that became very popular. It is hard to describe. Watch it yourself.
10. Evelyn Evelyn “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn”
The video begins with a girl drawing something on wet glass. The drawing comes to life and tells a story.
This is by no means a complete list. There were many great videos that could not make it to the top 10. Maybe we will share those video in some other article. What is your favourite video that is not in the list ? We would like to hear.
