Remember the good old days of viral videos? Back when Dad, Mom, kids, all huddled around the bulging desktop computer screen, with Dad possessively turning up the volume to make sure everyone could hear.
That image may be a little dated now that everyone and their junior higher has a portable wifi device. In honor of those earlier Internet days we present the following.
1. Paul Potts Stuns "Britain's Got Talented" Judges, Crowd with Stirring rendition of Nessum Dorma
He was just a Brit with bad teeth; and then, this voice! Check out Simon Cowell's face for bonus fun.
2. Jefferson Bethke Declares He Hates Religion but LOVES Jesus
Most common ways you'll encounter God in a church setting (or on YouTube for that matter) will be through lecture or music. Just giving that disclosure so that you're not surprised that Bethke's spoken word poem gives you chills.
3. In Which Kitchen-Ware Actually Makes Us Think About Christ
Okay, so we may be cheating a little bit on the last one -- at just over one million views, this video didn't exactly go viral. But if you're looking for something to stir your pot of a faith a little bit -- we'd have to recommend giving this one an extra view. (Also, yes, the title does start with a hastag. #OhHey.)
4. Father and His Daugher sing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros together and it's adorable.
Did that last sentence not make sense to you? Well, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is a band. And for the rest, you'll have to watch this video.
5. Oldie but Goodie
Because kids. Because you haven't watched it in five years. Because the Internet.
