It’s the end of yet another week, and the festive season is well and truly upon us – so you might see a few more Christmassy videos in this week’s round-up from every YouTube genre!
We’ve got Christmas jumper nail art, some wise words from TomSka, and some absolutely HILARIOUS Star Wars parody – so as always, settle in, scroll on, and enjoy!
TomSka/DarkSquidge – “Responsibility On YouTube”
How much are YouTubers responsible for the words and actions they endorse on their channels? “A lot” TomSka argues, and we’re inclined to agree. In this excellently-worded remade video from Tom, we learn a lot about punch-down humour, and get the amazing quote “the big picture is really just a mosaic made up of the all the little pictures”. Nice one, Tom!
Daniela Andrande – “Hips Don’t Lie Cover (ft. Shakira???)”
Not a lot of people can get a cameo from the person whose music they’re covering, but Daniela Andrande isn’t “a lot of people”. The awesome songstress delivered an amazing and stripped-back cover of Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” to an audience of one – but who is that one? You’ve probably already figured it out…
Auralnauts – “Darth Trump”
Can you imagine if Donald Trump wasn’t just a racist sandbag with a combover, but was also one of the most feared Dark Lords in the galaxy? Parody artists the Auralnauts created this screamingly hilarious re-dub of some of Darth Vader’s finest moments, with some of Donald Trump’s most inane and mendacious commentary. A MUST-SEE.
Tess Begg – “Vegan Gingerbread Men”
YouTube has officially gone holiday recipe crazy this week. Be careful where you tread, or you’ll be up to your knees in gravy and cake videos. But if you need some easing in, then why not try this vegan gingerbread man recipe from Tess Begg?
Nanalew – “A Taste of Tokyo”
It’s been a while since we’ve had a nice all-encompassing travel vlog, and thankfully Shawna Howson has some adventures to share! Her experiences in Tokyo with giant Gundams, monster cafés and srping baths will give you ALL the travel goals for 2016.
BooksAndQuills – “Bookish Christmas Gift Guide”
Stuck for gift ideas? Books NEVER fail. In one part of an epic gift guide trilogy, Sanne flexes both her gift-giving and book-knowing muscles to help you find the best gifts for your friends and family.
xameliax – “Christmas Jumper Nail Art Tutorial”
Christmas jumper mania is truly upon us. If it wasn’t enough to adorn your whole body in an ironically ugly knitted sweater all month, now you can rock the patterns on your NAILS. Here’s the how-to from xameliax!
Crash Course – “Immune System, Part 1”
If you’re anything like us, you might’ve been sniffling and coughing and patiently waiting for death the past couple of weeks. Why have our immune systems failed us? It might help if we knew a little more about them; thankfully, there’s a Crash Course class for that!
Mr. Weebl – “Put A Hat On It | Advent Day 10”
If you haven’t been watching Weebl’s Advent Calendar, SHAME ON YOU. The animation legend is burning himself out to make daily festive content for your enjoyment, and he might have already cracked. In yesterday’s instalment, Weebl realised he could make anything festive just by putting a Santa hat on it. So enjoy this totally-not-a-blatant-redo of “Penguin Rave”.
PewDiePie and JackSepticEye – “Who’s Your Daddy”
PREPARE TO WITNESS THE WEIRDEST GAME IN THE WORLD. Who’s Your Daddy is a glitchy, badly animated 2-player online game: one of you plays as the daddy, trying to protect the baby from hurting or killing itself; while the other person plays the baby, trying to evade the daddy and get themselves into all sorts of hazards. Who better to try something as ridiculous as this that Jack and Pewds? Check out BOTH their videos from the perspectives of both Daddy and Baby!
