Some Of The Funniest Viral Internet Trends Going On Right Now

Some of the best Internet trends are those that can make us laugh. The Internet is a place that can create a lot of emotions within us, so humor is probably one that we should shoot for. Some of the current trends that are quite funny are as follows.

Try Not To Laugh Challenge

Wait, how can trying not to laugh be funny? It is if you are watching an extremely hilarious short video and trying to contain the laugh that is trying to burst right out of you. You can take part in this hilarious challenge by just typing the words “laughing challenge” into your YouTube search bar. You will be presented with hundreds if not thousands of videos that give you the opportunity to take part in this challenge. See how many you can get through!

Mannequin Challenge

You probably have already heard of this one. The mannequin challenge is so popular that even some big name celebrities have taken part in this one. It is basically a challenge whereby people stand around like mannequins and another person goes around filming the scene while putting music behind the scene. It is funny just to try to stand as still as possible like that, but it is even better when you get a whole group of people to join in and stand around with you as someone films it.

Whisper Challenge

Are you bad at reading lips? So far most people. The funny part of this challenge is that very fact. You take one person who puts headphones on with music blaring loudly and watches the lips of another as they say a phrase of their choose. The person with the headphones on then tries to translate what the person speaking as said. It is quite funny to see what they believe is being said.

Prank Videos On YouTube Getting More Dangerous

Prank videos can be a lot of fun, and that is exactly how they started out when they first appeared on YouTube. Someone would set up a funny prank and video tape it with the person being taped not realizing that they were about to be the subject of a prank. If the prank is executed well, then we can all watch it and have a laugh. However, pranks on the Internet lately have gotten more and more desperate.

Mashable.com has published a great article that details how prank videos have gone from fun and innocent to downright terrible. They show some early prank videos that are very innocent and funny such as a person getting wet from being sprayed with a rigged up water faucet. However, the pranks started to get more and more dark as people were willing to do anything to get the clicks they wanted.

A member of the cast of Big Brother UK Sam Pepper was one of the bigger names to get in trouble for using YouTube as a means of doing something wrong. He made “prank” videos in which he allegedly sexually harassed someone. When this video came out it received immediate backlash. YouTube star Laci Green even went so far as to write an open letter to Sam Pepper calling him out for what he had done.

The criticism of the actions of Mr. Pepper grew and eventually he removed all of his Internet existence for a short time. He later returned to the Internet with more horrible material and was once again denounced. It was just the latest sign that some people will do whatever it takes to become “Internet famous”. There is a lot of money for those who really can generate a following, but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.

Man Wrecks Tvs Worth $6,000

If you ever think that you are having a bad day just know that at least you did not wreck $6,000 worth of televisions. That is what happened to one man in England recently, and the video is making the rounds.

The Huffington Post reported on the story and even showed the video to go along with it. The customer was leaning down to take a look at the television screen when he ended up knocking it over and into another television screen. That was crazy because the two sets together have a value of about $6,000.

The customer has not yet been identified, but people are already laughing so much at the video. The video is pretty funny because we can all relate to what this experience might be like. We can all understand what it might feel like to be in a situation like that, and we might even feel like it is something that we could see ourselves involved in.

The person who got himself stuck in a bad situation like this made it even worse by reacting in such a way to the first television falling over. He sort of snapped back and ended up bumping another television set over as a result. That was certainly not what he thought he was going to get into when he went in the store.

Perhaps at the end of the day the store will just take the free marketing that they are getting from the video as payment enough for the televisions that were ruined. Maybe the customer will also come forward and identify himself as well.

Newest Viral Sensation Involves a Naked Japanese Guy, An Electric Fan, a Table Cloth and a Tea Cup

If you’ve been sleeping under a rock or lost in the forest for an extended period of time, you may not have heard about the newest viral sensation to hit the internet. Or maybe you seem to recall mentions of that naked Japanese guy and a table cloth around the office, but you just haven’t gotten around to checking it out. Well, whatever the reason, it’s time to bring you up to date because this guy is simply too great not to see for yourself.

Kazuhisa Uekusa is a comedian from Japan’s Saitama Prefecture. At 29 years old, this innovative fellow has found himself to be the latest global sensation due to his rather unique talent. We’ve all seen versions of the table cloth trick in which someone yanks a cloth off a table so swiftly that it doesn’t disturb the place settings of fine china, glassware and silver. Well, Uekusa takes this classic bit to a new level by using his naked body as the surface upon which strategically placed cups and saucers are set.

His videos began circulating on Twitter just recently after he posted one he had leftover from a series of television show performances. Hating to see the clip go to waste, he stuck it up online and was then surprised to see how popular his parlor trick was becoming. His latest version involves the cloth being wrapped up in an electric table fan so that when it unravels, it is pulled from beneath the cups without causing them to crash to the floor.

Pretty amazing, huh? While it may be a bit risque and more than a little bizarre, this viral sensation is also simply too amazing not to see.

Funny Viral Trends in 2017 This Far

The Internet is an endless spring of entertainment. More and more comedic content is popping up, and some are left in the past. Most of the content features memes and vines which sprout out from unsuspecting source materials such as movies, celebrity interviews, animals and children behaving funny, and above all real life situations.

Not too long ago, the primary source of comedic content was Vine which is no longer around. There are other outlets, however, that serve as a platform for people to share some entertainment. We are halfway into 2017, and the memes and comedic clips have come and gone, and of course, more are emerging.

Some of the most recent funny viral trends were memes such as ‘my name is Jeff’ which came from a movie that hit the theaters this year. There was something sad yet comedic in the way the actor said the phrase and that had many video content creators use it as a punch line to relay awkwardness.

Another viral trend on the internet this year has been the fidget spinner. It was originally for relaxation purposes, but it turned into somewhat of a meme when the toy became so overly saturated on the internet. People made a laugh out of throwing fidget spinners in the trash or pretending to play the character of the ”basic” person.

Memes have been around for about a decade. Almost each one of the creators is unknown, but their creations are used to entertain millions of teenagers and young adults every day. Content creators use them in unique ways and come up with new things in the process. What makes a good meme is usually the relatability and the comedic value while in some cases it is the cringy and awkward feeling they inspire. Memes are the internet’s way of expressing oneself.

The Fun Things on the Internet that Show Up Every Day

The internet certainly evolves and develops faster than any other media that we know of. In the online world, trends come and go with very fast pace.

For example, on last year Viners were all that the internet was consuming, and now Vine is one of the biggest guilty pleasures of the network. Who didn’t catch the popularization of the social media Ask.fm two years ago? And the popularization of the Twitch memes? How come that now they are one of the cringiest things on the internet?

Trends come and go, and one of the most everlasting places to find the latest trends is the good old YouTube and its potential to have something new for the internet every single day.

One of the best channels to visit to have a good laugh is the channel “Cut,” that constantly releases footage of dozens of people doing the same thing, but to each on their own. This week, for example, their newest Viral video was the “100 people share their evil laugh,” and it is certainly loads of fun to see awkward and cringe moments where the evil laugh is something much funnier that you expected.

Twitter and Facebook are great places to find new funny videos as well. For example, lately, there’s been a video circling the network about a security robot that patrols on its own. That is fine, but there is footage that shows the robot simply falling on a pool, helpless, while trying to execute its commands.

How can we talk about the funniest news without mentioning politics? Donald Trump, doesn’t matter if you support him or not, certainly increased the availability of funny videos on the internet regarding politics in the U.S.

In 19 of July, for example, there’s proof that the wife of the Japan’s Prime, Minister Shinzo Abe, met with the president in an afternoon, and told him that she did not know how to speak English just to blatantly avoid talking with the man, while she later showed to the internet that her English was perfectly fluent.

Hurry up: By the time you are reading this article, there’s already something new to digest from the immortal pool of memes that is called “the Internet.”

Robot Drowns Itself and The Internet Responds

Robots have been a fascination of people for decades ever since the first Science fiction author came up with the idea. This latest internet meme plays into that idea. On July 14th, product manager Bilal Farooqi, posted an image on Twitter of a robot that appeared to have drowned itself. While no one from the company that created the robot, Knightscope, was able to provide an explanation for the apparent suicide, instead simply saying that it was an “isolated incident” and it was under investigation, many of Farooqi’s twitter followers and social media commentators had plenty of ideas.

Fans of the Hitchhiker’s Galaxy were particularly affluent, as the security robot, which was designed to look a bit like the depressed robot Marvin as depicted in thehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JubaAS1v-w. Many Twitter users posted quotes from the movie or wondered if it had been read Vogon poetry, which for the uninitiated is another reference to the book, movie, tv, and radio series.

As the photo began to go viral other people pointed out that Marvin is not the only depressed or suicidal robot out there. People posted a number jokes, included several Daleks who inexplicably fell off cliffs, and of course, Bender the suicidal robot from Futurama made an appearance. Buzzfeed even posted an article featuring the some of the best of these tweets.

But among all these jokes and tweets, no one was able to come up with a reason why the robot committed suicide. Was it simply bored, as such a high-end security robot that is able to prevent crimes and save lives probably didn’t have much to do in the relatively safe DC Harbour office building where Farooqi worked? Maybe it wasn’t suicide, and Knightscope’s tight lips are because of a cover-up, rather than just a lack of information. We may never know, but at least we can have a few minutes of fun at this robots expense.

The Impact of Memes on Politics

Memes are funny viral internet trends that have surfaced on social media sites. While they are commonly used for fun between friends, they also have larger implications that were evident during the United Kingdom’s general election. Memes about the politicians of both parties popped up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram during the weeks before voting. They swayed some votes with particularly entertaining content and jokes. One voter from Glasgow reported, “some memes were really impactful…although they were just meant for humor, they really hit home on some of these issues.” The most successful memes included animations and caricatures of the candidates. As with any good meme, the text on the bottom referred to social issues or traits of the candidates. While it is not known whether the candidates themselves saw any memes, their staff certainly did. Both parties declined to further comment on the phenomenon.

 

Most experts agree that memes are not a form of corruption in any manner. They are free forms of expression on social media, and because they reach such a large audience, their effects are felt around the world. However, there is a fine line between memes and fake news. It is easy for designers to alter memes to contain faulty information that could skew the outcome of an election. It is up to users to determine which memes are valid and which ones are sinister. In any case, memes are a relative newcomer to politics. A few decades ago, it would have been difficult to imagine a society where humorous cartoons have such large impacts on elections. Memes are the most common in the United Kingdom and America. In addition, certain sites are more susceptible to this medium than others. Overall, we should respect that memes and politics go in tandem, and when it comes to advertisement, they truly are powerful images.

 

Why More People are Choosing to Watch Comedy Videos Online

We’re living in a time now when everything is incredibly serious. You can’t go online without hearing about a news story or watching a video full of violence and hatred. This is why more and more people are choosing to watch humor videos. Humor videos are great because they allow you to unwind and relax without the worry that you’re watching something so graphic.

These videos can be on all different subjects, which is ideal for people of all different comedy types. Whether you like crude humor or dry humor, there is pretty much something for everyone on the internet. You will find that there are a number of people who are changing their settings on their social media pages to prevent themselves from seeing more serious videos. They only want to view videos that are considered comedy because of the fact that they want to enjoy the content as opposed to get annoyed or aggravated with it.

 

If you’re finding that you’re watching too many serious videos and they’re taking a toll on your happiness and well-being, it might be a good idea for you to set certain blocks and restrictions concerning the content that is found on your social media wall.

There has never been a better time for you to have a good laugh than now because of all the videos that are readily available just by looking onto your social media page and scrolling down the list of funny videos posted by other people online.

 

Horsey McHorseface Takes the Gold

Many of you may remember awhile back when the British government used an internet poll to name their new research vessel, then got their collective crumpets in a twist when the winning entry was “Boaty McBoatface.” They then went on give it the slightly less amusing name of the RRS Sir David Attenborough. Now, the internet has a new champion, a race horse named Horsey McHorseface. Well, if you can’t have a boat, the obvious next best choice is to get a horse.

 

 

The owners, who bought horse who would become Horsey McHorseface back in 2015, thought the name would be a good way to generate some positive media buzz. In an interview with CNN, the horse’s manger discussed the events leading up to picking the name “We had a laugh about it in the office and thought, ‘Hey, why not.'”

 

 

Getting your name out there is great, but victories are that much better. So, imagine the excitement when the three-year-old gelding whose name helped it became a cult figure amongst the racing crowd (not to mention having 24-million Twitter followers), proved it’s not just a one trick pony by winning his first race. Horsey took a trip from his home in New Zealand to the pull a last second victory at the Cessock Racetrack in New South Wales, Australia beating the less amusingly named “The Big Dreamer” and “Lucky Starlet”

 

 

Coming out this massive victory it does raise the rather pertinent question of have we reached the peak of the trend Something McSomethingface? Or, with this new victory for funny names, will this only encourage others to run this trend straight to the glue factory?
