TGIF! The end of the week has arrived and with it our picks for the best viral videos of the week. This week is all sorts of fun, with everything from a cute Star Wars-themed VW commercial, the latest from The Lonely Island, Rihanna’s controversial new music videos and some sick beatboxing skills. Check them all out below and end the workweek with a smile on your face.
Volkswagen Commercial: The Force
This adorable commercial for the Volkswagen 2012 Passat has been viewed over 4.5 million views in only two days. It features a little kid in a Darth Vader costume trying to use the Force to make all sorts of things happen. He’s faced with disappointment after disappointment, but he gets what he wants at the end. So cute!
The Creep (feat. Nicki Minaj)
You finally succeeded in getting The Lonely Island’s last hit ‘I Just Had Sex’ out of your head, and they’re back with a new hit song – ‘The Creep’ featuring Nicki Minaj. The Creep is all about being creepy (and not just any creepy…John Waters creepy). Everyone’s going to be doing the Creep in the clubs this weekend, so you better practice if you wanna make it as a certified creep.
‘The Creep’, which has been viewed about 4.8 million times this week, isn’t as good as ‘I Just Had Sex’, which achieved over 13.5 million views in the first week. However, it’s still pretty amusing, and Nicki Minaj is pretty good at creepin’.
Rihanna – S&M
Rihanna’s latest music video ‘S&M’ has drawn up some controversy this week as YouTube has flagged it for inappropriate content and viewers can only watch when logged in to the video site if they are eighteen years or older. The video features a number of sadomasochistic images, such as Rihanna walking a guy like a dog with a ball gag in his mouth, and lyrics like, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me.”
Rihanna struck out against YouTube’s flagging with a tweet hat said “U can now view the S&M video on www.Rihannanow.com UNFLAGGED!!!” But despite the censorship, the video still has got over 4.3 million views this week.
The most amazing beat box video ever!!!
Just a few weeks ago we came out with our list of the 10 amazing beatbox videos. This week a video of French beat box phenomenon EKLIPS, which blows many of our picks away, has gone viral. The clip has been viewed over 1.5 million times so far. What do you think of this guy’s beatboxing skills?
Crazy In & Out Dunk
Finally, this crazy in and out dunk video has gotten over 1.5 million views in the last week. He dunks the ball, it goes in and it bounces right back out off of thin air! Ridiculous! Check out more unbelievable slam dunk videos here.
