OK, I've only watched the Bathtub IV video so far, but it's brilliant. Thanks for posting this!

So, these are not the "most favorited" videos, but somehow the favorites of the Vimeo staff or are Blake Whitman's personal favorites?

Either way, fun compendium. I'll have to dig through this more later.

So happy to see the Tarantino mixtape on there. It's really fantastic work.

Yeah, I clicked on the Tarantino mixtape and can safely report that it is 110% awesome.

Personally, nothing punched my ovaries harder in '09 than Capucine. (Granted, many of the videos doing the most serious punching were actually from '08, but I did not discover them till '09.) If there is a separate list for videos that make you realize you want to spawn a tiny baby Amelie, she totally makes top three.

Bathtub IV is amazing and makes the whole tilt shift fad worth while.

1000 words was great, Let the Beat Build was spectacular, Parachute Ending by Birdy Nam Nam was pretty good, and the Tarantino Mixtape is made of win.

Thanks for this time sink.

So is Vimeo basically Youtube, but not full of crap content and trash users?

I heart vimeo.

I really like vimeo, it's like alternate, interesting universe YouTube. So this is cool, thanks.

Still waiting for someone to do the backwards bathtub full of sand thing from the Hitchhiker's Guide.

I really enjoyed Imaginary Hero, and Bathtub IV basically made me weep. Great post.

Meh.
