#95 - Charlie the Unicorn

Charlie The Unicorn was submitted in 2005 by a user named TypeQueen (Jason Steele) to Newgrounds.com -- a large portal for Flash games, animations, and other Flash creations. The video took off, and an unauthorized copy was posted on YouTube where it was viewed tens of millions of times. Jason's other works are available on YouTube under the username SecretAgentBob.

#94 - Winnebago Man

(NOT SAFE FOR WORK) Jack Rebney
is not having a good day. Winnebago Man, as he's better known, is a salesman who can't stand the heat, but stays inside the vehicle as he continues to film a promotional video for the RV. The dude is a swearing machine and manages to cram hilarious, seething fury into some of the best outtakes to ever be caught on video and shared with the world by some underpaid PA on YouTube.

#93 - Leeroy Jenkins

In this video, a group of online World of Warcraft gameplayers huddle up to discuss an elaborate strategy to defeat a legion of flying monsters in the next room. Eventually Leeroy Jenkins, a character created by Ben Schultz, gets impatient with all the standing around, yells his own name like a Rebel battle cry and promptly leads the group to their fiery deaths. The massive hilarity of the incident led to over 11 million YouTube views, a Jeopardy! question, and exposed the mainstream masses to the dark underbelly of massively multiplayer online role-playing games.

#92 - Lightning Bolt!

Sometimes you just gotta let loose and LARP -- Live Action Role Play, that is. In this iconic clip, we see rock-throwing and sword-yielding, but one fighter has a special power -- which necessitates him to repeatedly yell "LIGHTNING BOLT." We're pretty sure we know who gets the fair maiden after the battle. - LW


#91 - The Average Homeboy (Denny Blazin Hazen)

In a prime example of the popularity of retro vids "going viral" once ripped to the web, Denny Blaze aka The Average Homeboy, was found on a demo VHS he sent to MTV. After living in the studios for 17 years, an MTV employee discovered the genius, quickly uploaded to YouTube, and voila: viral. To answer your question: no, Vanilla Ice and Eminem were not the first white rappers. -LW
