Memorable Internet "Videos"

For some reason I'm fascinated by these "internet memes" as some call them.

Some, like this video from Saddle Brook, NJ of 19 year-old Gary Brolsma become so famous that that they have their own Wikipedia entries.

Others, like the Star Wars Kid start out as a simple home made video and then get so many parodies and mash ups that they end up needing a whole website to keep them straight.

Others, like this video of Two Chinese Students or this video shot by Michael Rubin on his Droidmaker book tour, are less well known, for now.

The one thing they all have in common? They make me wonder how soooo many people have sooooo much free time.
