My Favorite Videos of 2016

I watch a lot of videos online, here are my ten favorites from 2016.

This video on the History of Japan by Bill Wurtz is unlike anything I've ever seen. It's funny, informative, thorough yet brief and the music is damn good.

This perfume ad directed by Spike Jonze with Margaret Qualley is the best dance video of all time.

A short documentary on the amazing story of Haru Urara, the worst racehorse in Japan. The director, Mickey Duzyj, is also an fantastic illustrator (see his work in this article on bat-flipping in Korean baseball). 

I'd love more videos from Jeff Seal, the few I've seen are all incredibly fun.

This video is better than the actual music video that Kanye West made for Famous.

I actually accidentally clicked on this music video somehow, I'm glad I did.

I'd love a properly produced version of this improvised song from Donald Glover and Reggie Watts, it's truly great.

The New York Times came out with this little documentary in February and it's so damn relevant.

There were an infinite amount of mashups made this year. This is the only one that was a true work of art.
