Christmas is a magical time (cynics to the left, I flipping love it), but once you’ve opened your presents and eaten that big breakfast, shit gets kind of dull. In my family, the Christmas tradition was a movie and a shopping expedition to Walgreens, because nothing else was open and there’s only so long you can sit on your ass on the sofa paging through new books and fiddling with new electronic devices. I’ve matured since I was a kid—now the amount of time I can sit on my ass on the sofa is approaching infinity—but still, it’s nice to have something to do while you’re sitting around being a lazy, festive fuck.
To that end, here are some of the best videos of 2014 (meaning “they went viral in 2014” or “I first watched them in 2014” or “It’s 2014, and they’re videos!”). Watch them. Rewatch them. Don’t let the post-holiday funk get to you.
