Happy 5th birthday YouTube! WYNC's Brain Lehrer Show has put together a list of their favorite videos form the last 5 years. Mostly political - some pandas.

Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

I think so, Brain, but how come you never told me you had a radio show?

Cute. Though of course the 2004 election videos are not from within the last 5 years and so weren't really YouTube videos oh whatever

The sharp contrast in tone between some of these videos is a little too much for me.

"Come in Agent Zero. Come in Agent Zero."
"Yes, Control?"
"Intelligence reports WYNC have gotten their hands on the Brain Lehrer. Every cerebellum on the eastern seaboard is in grave danger. You must stop them at all costs."
"Understood. Agent Zero, over and out."

Fair warning - if you've so far managed to avoid the video of the dying Iranian girl, it's in here. Also, it really doesn't feel like five years, it already feels like it's kind of always been there.

It's hard to believe YouTube's just five years old; it's become so ubiquitous on the 'Net nowadays.
