Greetings. 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. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

About a year ago, GoldieBlox successfully kickstarted an interactive book series and constructions set about a young girl who loves to build.

Before Deborah Cohan went into surgery to have her breasts removed, she recruited everyone in the OR to join her in dancing to Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.” Cohan, an Ob/Gyn from San Francisco, requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing so she can watch them while she recovers.
M.I.A.’s video for Y.A.L.A. comes with an epilepsy warning because the flashing lights and negative imaging gets pretty intense. The song from her new album Matangi was made in collaboration with British magazine i-D and fashion house Kenzo. By the way, Y.A.L.A. stands for you always live again. Shots fired, Drake.
In this first episode of Single_Never_Married we meet Deon, a dating expert that sucks at dating. The show shares a writer with the book it’s based on, “How to Get Real About Dating.” The remaining eight episodes will tackle love, dating, the difficulties around finding a good match, and how we all really want to be accepted and loved for who we are.
If you have a video you think everyone should see, tweet it to @bishilarious for consideration. And of course feel free to post your favorite videos from the week below.
