Lena Dunham hosted SNL and the most delightful thing to come out out of that might have been this backstage video. I regret that we never got to hear Kate McKinnon‘s relationship history but we did get a line of her Beyoncé impression.
Zach Galifianakis’s awkward yet hilarious interview series, Between Two Ferns, had its highest profile guest ever when President Obama dropped by to do what most people on the show do — plug their shit. His plug was for healthcare.gov. The deadline approaches y’all.
Smoukahontas is a YouTuber from Finland that’s been getting a lot of attention because of her video, One Girl, 14 Genres, in which she sings in 14 different “genres.”
Filmmaker Tatia Pilieva paired off 20 strangers and got them to kiss. People have been calling it tender, touching, emotional, etc. but mostly it’s kind of awkward. They even included the gays. You can decide for yourself if this is cute or cringeworthy.
This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct.

Aim low, world. Aim low.
