The downside of working at The Next Web blog and conference is that everybody thinks we are very up-to-date with everything Internet related. Sure, we know about a lot but when it comes to RickRolling or the laughing baby or any other viral entertainment we generally get ignored.

I’m sure my friends think “I’m not RickRolling Boris. He probably got RickRolled TOO much”. The result is I’m often not aware of major viral videos. To tell you the truth I have NEVER even been Rickrolled before.

That is why I’m happy that someone made this great collection of some of the major viral videos of 2008. It will take a few minutes but after that you will be able to bluff you into any viral video conversation. “Lion reunited video? Yeah, saw that one. Ante up Bert and Ernie remix? Yeah hilarious. But did you see those Beyonce impersonators? Wow.”
