Year-end Lists 2015: Internet

Zapatou’s Best of the Web 2015

The concept of “Hey, y’all, watch this!” has been elevated to an art form. Luc Bergeron (Zapatou) gives us a 21-minute compilation of the best internet videos from 2015. It’s absolutely beautiful, and breathtaking. The first seven minutes are extreme human stunts that may leave you dizzy. Starting at about seven minutes in, you may become verklempt. At 8:15, it become adorably cute. Then animals jump in. We also see some great special effects. At 12 minutes in, the stunts start again, with a fast-moving sequence of vehicle videos. At 15 minutes, we see the art of video. At 16:30, the dancing begins. At 18 minutes, we see the beauty of places. And more stunts. These videos would not be possible -or be as good- without GoPros, drones, high definition, and video stabilizing technology. And a bunch of fearless people.

YouTube Rewind 2015

YouTube released its annual look back at the past year in video form today. It’s not a compilation of clips; rather, it’s an elaborate production number that uses the themes and memes of 2015’s biggest videos. Many of the original filmmakers and video subjects were recruited to appear in this- you’ll see them in the credits. And since YouTube celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2015, there are some callbacks to much older classics.
