YouTube Embed Spectacular

So, one of the staffers out in Salt Lake City sent this to me ages ago. Literally. Almost a year ago! My apologies that it's taken so long to share.

Nonetheless, the basic premise is this: Fill the dead spaces and transition times at Club with the best viral videos from YouTube. It's a brilliant idea and I suspect many of you have been doing this for years. Below you'll find a list of several great videos. But first, a few notes:
  1. Pre-screen the videos for language. Some will include inappropriate language. In these cases, use the visual humor, but play audio over top of the video's audio. Or, just don't use them. Your call.
  2. Double-check the related videos that pop up after you complete your video or are listed alongside your video. Sometimes, these can be unsavory.
  3. To avoid #2 and avoid issues with an unpredictable or non-existent internet connection, you can actually download the YouTube videos directly to your computer using MPEG Steamclip (Mac & PC) or Evom (Mac). I like Evom. You can then play these through iTunes, QuickTime, or Windows Media Player right from a laptop or from an iPhone/iPad/iPod with the right cords.
  4. More hilarious videos here: Greg Rutter's Definitive List of the 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced on the Internet Unless You're a Loser or Old or Something. Several of those are not appropriate so you'll have to do the separating.
  5. Just released: Greg Rutter's SECOND Definitive List of the 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced on the Internet Unless You're a Loser or Old or Something. Again, you'll have to do the heavy lifting of deciding what is and what isn't appropriate. That's why you're paid the big bucks as a volunteer Young Life leader!
  6. On that not, the Failblog is also a pretty risque site, but the Failblog YouTube Channel has some excellent videos that are mostly clean.
Without further ado, the videos...





























Finally, a few links of the links don't allow embedding:
