We all need a good laugh every now and then. Sometimes life can get pretty serious. Work can be extra stressful on any given day. Our spouses, families, neighbors or any number of other people might be driving us crazy. Maybe you’re feeling under the weather, and the influenza blues have got you down. Whatever the reason, there are many times that we all need a little pick me up, a quick escape from reality. We want to forget the demands of modern life. What better way to unwind than to get lost in an online video? Try immersing yourself in the silliness of amateur footage of animals or people doing ridiculous things.
Finding stupid videos that will make you laugh are only a click away. Some of the videos may make you crack up so hard (be prepared), you may cry. Can you think of the last time you’ve laughed so hard there were tears streaming down your face? Laughing is good for the soul. Squeeze in a little stupid video YouTube viewing sessions into your schedule and you can laugh that hard every day.
ARE STUPID CAT VIDEOS FUNNIER THAN DOG VIDEOS?
Animal videos are a popular genre and funny cat videos of felines doing random stupid things have their own special niche of fans. Cats walking on two feet; cats jumping in bathtubs; cats falling in the sink; cats doing just about anything makes us laugh. In fact, cats are so funny that videos staring these furry friends can receive upward of 50 million views within a year. In this YouTube stupid cat video, the lovable feline sniffing exhaust fumes is good for a giggle.
Dogs are not only man’s best friends; they are also a great source of laughter. Although funny dog videos on YouTube aren’t quite as popular as cat videos, they are still pretty humorous. In this YouTube video the lovable Mackie the Boston Terrier tries to get an apple, see how it works out for him. Mackie and his friends are the stars of fifteen YouTube videos.
STUPID VIDEOS ARE FOR THE BIRDS
Then there are the bird videos. Birdbrains have always been perceived as stupid, but the birds are remarkably talented in most of these videos. Singing and dancing birds, just doing what comes naturally to them are cool, but a bird dropping dubstep beats is something short of a miracle. The video is just 5 seconds long, so don’t blink or you’ll miss it. Better yet, put this stupid video on a loop to laugh over and over.
If you can’t isolate your interest in birds, then combine your love for cats and birds by watching YouTube stupid videos featuring them both. Cats and birds interacting might be the best silly videos to highlight the relationship between these two animals. Their videos don’t get as many views as stupid cat videos, but birds can be pretty silly, too.
YOUTUBE STUPID VIDEOS: SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
If animals don’t make you laugh, there are plenty of other YouTube stupid videos featuring people that can be just as amusing. There is no shortage of stupid people videos, from crooks caught on camera to people kicking eggs in slow motion to unbelievably stupid movie trailers that leave you shaking your head wondering what you just watched. Ever see a driver-less car go through the drive-thru? The NOC channel on YouTube has a ton of funny videos focusing on athletes, but it also features a skit about the car without a driver freaking out restaurant employees. Does watching a movie trailer online help you decide if you should see a movie or not? Let us know if this Sand Sharks Trailer makes you want to run out and see it. This movie seems so stupid it has to be funny.
