“Andy Kaufman: ‘I Trusted You’”: Andy Kaufman was my mom's friend when she was a little girl in Great Neck, Long Island, so I've always been aware of his work, and this is by far my favorite clip of him.

“Best Street Part Ever—Parents Yet to Find Out”: This kid is a rock star. Why is this newscaster being such a stick in the mud? My favorite moment is :57 at when you see a brief shot of one of his stud friends running nude through the streets.

“So What If I Am a Black Woman”: This is the first YouTube video I ever favorited—I just love the bold delivery by this tiny girl. It reminds me to stay brave and honest!

Interesting that your three favorite videos are not "user-created content," but rather archived clips from mainstream media. YouTube gets talked about mainly as a means of "broadcasting yourself," but I think that it also is just as important as a pop-cultural archive. Without a service like YouTube for fans to (illegally, technically) upload these clips, these moments would likely be lost forever.

My favorite videos on Youtube are slice-of-life films that are hilarious, absurd, and poignant.

My top three favorites are:
Confessions of a Teenage Girl

The Office

I hope you enjoy them as well!
