Brittani’s Video Party: Orange is the New Cat

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.

Can’t make it through a date without mentioning cats? Then you’ll be able to relate to The Cat Lady Chronicles. There is some hetero making out to endure but a.) you’re used to it and b.) it’s worth it for the cats.

Issa Rae and others teamed up for an Orange is the New Black parody. They also worked in some Miley Cyrus and Julianna Hough references.

You might not like football but if you like crying, you should watch this video about a special play by Olivet Middle School’s football team, The Eagles.

Allie Brosh’s blog, Hyperbole and a Half, is a huge thing on the internet in case you didn’t know. So much so that she just released a book, Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened. Here she is giving a Google Talk and reading excerpts from the release.

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.
