The Gummy Awards: Your Favorite Viral Videos Of 2011

Yesterday we presented the Gummy Award winners of the “Favorite TV Show” category, and it was very exciting. Lots of great TV shows in there. And now, to make things even more exciting if you can even handle it, we would like to present your “Favorite Viral Video” Gummy winners! GREAT! Similar to what we spoke about with the TV category, it has been a very good year for viral videos. Almost too good of a year. For instance, just last week we had BOTH the “Georgia On My Mind” whistler and a very memorable trampoline accident. JUST LAST WEEK! So choosing ten videos out of the millions and millions and millions of great videos we watched during 2011 was obviously a difficult decision. But we did it! And we picked ten great ones! And then you voted on which of those were the best! Great job to all of us and, of course, great job to all of the viral videos. A round of applause, please, as we see how all of our old pals made out.

Ok, so. First of all, great job on voting for these videos. You had great choices and you made great decisions. It’s been a big year for “Dancing With Swords” and they definitely deserve it and I wish them all the best. Same with the motivational bike kid, I’m sure we ALL feel happy of himself right now. But, uh, did you guys maybe get the number 10 confused with the number 1? And that’s why “More Sand,” the most perfect viral video of all time let alone simply the year 2011, is at number 10 rather than number 1? I mean, I know that you at no point had to write out the numbers “10” or “1” during the voting process, but I’m really trying to come up with a better explanation and I CAN’T! GUYS? Whatever. I love it enough for all of you. Congratulations to the rest of the lucky winners! You’re all wonderful!
