Felicia’s Five Favorite Videos of 2011

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On, Two

I just posted this a few months ago, but I still love it! Marcel the Shell is my favorite and most quoted video of the year by far (‘treats and snoozing, snoozing and treats’) and Marcel makes me smile every time I see him (‘because it’s worth it’). (original post)

Ultimate Dog Tease

Though every week I write about the new video I love most, some weeks our timing is off and a video blows up before any of us had the chance to showcase it’s ‘awesome.’ This is one of those videos. Made by the same guy who voiced my favorite cat video, this doggie dub is hilarious and plays to every pet-owner curiosity about what their pups are thinking.

Bon Iver “Calgary”

This is just stunning! As some one who’s been a fan of Bon Iver’s music for awhile now, I’m partial to the floating, haunting melodies. But, what I love most about this video is how well the dreamlike visuals complement the song, largely due to the sharp, pale features of Riana from Top Model. (original post)

World Order “Machine Civilization”

This Japanese music video made it to my favorites for two reasons: 1) it’s crazy impressive that all five of those guys could pull of such precise movements in live slow motion 2) the video was released to promote a healthily post-earthquake Japan and embody the message that it’s possible to rise form the chaos and create order.

    I am trying to figure out where you got my address, either one of my teenagers subscribed or this is a virus in disguise. If my son or daughter subscribed I’ll have to thank them or if this is a virus it’s the best one yet, worth every bit. I love “World Order” video. Wow what a great piece. thank you for introducing me to them. Keep it up, I love you.

    • Nope, not a virus. Just your friendly neighborhood blog about awesome videos. Glad to hear that you enjoyed World Order. It’s one of my favorite videos of the year!
