20090107 n6xpadg1adyhpujnnjg776ps55 Top 36 (plus one NSFW) viral videos of 2008
Dagan Cohen presenting the list

My co-editor Zee reported about it last night, yet co-editors Boris, Patrick and I actually went there: Upload Cinema. A monthly gig in Amsterdam where organizers Barbara de Wijn and Dagan Cohen take web videos to the big screen. It’s sponsored by Amsterdam advertising agency Draftfcb and invitation only, however you can apply for membership here.

On Monday, Upload Cinema presented their fine selection of last year’s best viral videos. Cohen explained that they left out the Idols/ X-Factor stuff, as that’s sooo 2006. One of the most sexiest virals was also excluded by the strict judges, since they already showed that one during a previous edition.

We were all surprised by the original and sometimes artistic entries. So give yourself a well deserved break and watch the ones you haven’t seen.
