I was reminded today that this song exists, and I love everything about it! Sometimes I wish I could pipe it directly into Dan's ears after some of the self-critical things he posts or says in videos. :lol:



Edit: Yay, top of a whole new page of happiness! :D In honor of this achievement, I'll add my favorite video from the classic YouTube series Auto-Tune the News, which definitely never fails to make me happy.

I'm having an anxious night and acrylic pour videos are getting me through it.

Roly West is a YouTuber who I absolutely adore, and I think their laugh is one of the most infectious I've ever heard! I've put two exemplary videos below. In my opinion, the build-up for both videos is pretty long (i.e., the first 6.5 minutes in the first and the first 3.5 minutes in the second), but they both have me literally crying with laughter by the end.




I've put two more throwback videos under the spoiler. They both contain a single short moment that cracks me up that I think others might also enjoy if they like Roly. :)
Moment at 1:40-2:02


Moment at 1:56-2:20

I really enjoy having train cab ride videos playing on the side while I’m doing other things, and while they’re not exactly videos that make me happy, I do find them extremely calming and thought I’d share. Japan and Norway {one of my favourite countries} seem to have the best, and UK cab rides are usually pants. There’s loads to choose from on youtube, but here’s a couple good ones:




This one is a monorail, and is pretty short, but it seems like a really beautiful place.

Sometimes I fall down YouTube rabbit holes in which I watch a ton of auditions from various singing and talent shows, and watching these videos never fails to make me happy. The audition that sticks out the most in my memory (and that I've probably rewatched the most) is this one:

I don't know if this clip will ever stop cracking me up. I keep showing it to every friend I meet up with.

Back on the topic of songs - this ending theme for Shin Chan remains something that makes me smile. It makes me think of college and watching this with my old roommate.

There are a number of sitcoms that I like to watch from start-to-finish over-and-over again as background noise, and I just started watching Frasier again. I just remembered that this moment exists, and it never fails to make me laugh.

There are undoubtedly countless Pokémon meme pages, but I've taken a special liking to the Bulbasaur Propaganda Twitter account. They retweet the cutest Bulbasaur fanart and funniest memes, and going to their profile just makes me really happy every time!

Oh I love this. Frasier is one of my favorite shows, and I'm gonna piggyback on that because I discovered Matt Baume a few months ago and his Frasier video is one of my favorites. Despite Frasier being a show I've probably seen probably every single episode of twice, this video still made me look at it in a new perspective.

alittledizzy Wow, thanks for sharing! Before I watched that video, I had no idea there were any queer people besides David Hyde Pierce who worked on Frasier! :prideheart:

Okay, I haven't watched this video since it was first published over ten years ago. However, I have thought about it from time to time over the years, and tonight was one of those times. I think it is perhaps the most endearing video John has ever made, and rewatching it for the first time tonight made me immensely happy.
