The end of another year is fast approaching and so it’s only natural to be reminiscent of what has happened throughout 2018. With political turmoil, rampant killings, and intensified natural disasters, it’s difficult to judge whether the year has been favorable or not, because with the bad news came also good ones, like the passing of mental health law and the outlaw of street harassment towards women.
As is human nature, we’ve contributed an equal share of good and bad in today’s world. But of course, it is also part of our nature to be a little weird, and what better way to record our absurd, creative inventions than the ever-reliable internet. To end our year on a good note here is a reminder of a few of the funniest and most wholesome videos that surfaced on our news feeds this 2018:
10. The Furry Rock Stars
pure fucking gold

It’s not hard to believe that these Cenozoic animals were drawn specifically for this purpose.
9. The Crammer’s Song

It’s not completely wholesome, but watching this video made me feel a lot better every time throughout the year I had to get off my butt and start working (ehem procrastinating).

We all know who we should wake up when September ends, but this funky lizard knew how to welcome our September 2018 right.
7. Origin of The Venus Fly Trap
“I can’t move I’m a plant!” – what I want to say to my responsibilities.
Again, not really the most wholesome, but this never failed to cheer me up.
6. The Little Umbrella Song
Now you know where those tiny umbrellas came from, next time you order a fruity drink.
5. Bongo Cat

Around a month ago, the bongo cat became viral and different songs were used for it to jam to. Though in my opinion, this version may be the best. It screaming its cutie little head off over the mountains is all of us inside.
4. Donut (remix)
fyi, Donut will take over the world in no time. Be ready.

I know we all said we’re going to start dieting this year and never got around it. It’s probably my new year’s resolution for this year as well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
3. Dancing Cockroach
This video was originally created last year, 2017, but it’s so weird and catchy it still pops on my timeline now and then. If cockroaches would just dance instead of fly, they wouldn’t be half bad.
2. Loved (Blue Dude #2)
It's easy to forget how loved you actually are. Hopefully this video reminds you 💙Please SHARE to help spread the love!(Music by idealism)

Created by the same animator who made the Little Umbrella song, Danny Casale, this little blue dude currently has a three-part series of good thoughts to spread that are relevant and timeless. You can watch more of his works on his Facebook page, @coolmancoffeedan. I personally recommend it. It has the right blend of weird, and uplifting.
1. Hey Stranger
Here's a proper upload on facebook without dumb captions and with proper optional subtitles! Yey!

Of course, on the top of our list is the butt video everyone didn’t miss. Once you get past the haunting eyes and that shiny bottom, his words are quite soothing and warm, like the hug of an old friend.
The hug of a strange, naked friend at least.
