It’s time for my annual posting of the Top 10 YouTube Videos of the Year (see last year’s list here). This ranking is totally unscientific, and there’s actually more than 10 videos this time. Only one person was polled to compile this list—yours truly. This year’s slate of videos has both humor and humanity with some other odds and ends thrown in. If you think I’ve left something out, let me know. I’ll think about adding an “Honorable Mention” category at the bottom. Enjoy!
If you’re interested, here are links to lists from previous years:

She has my vote!
Linda Paulson ran for Utah State Senate (District 12). This is one of her campaign ads, and it’s one for the ages.
I’m pretty sure he’s pro-vax.
Seen during this morning’s Dallas City Council meeting: a rap during open mic about getting vaccinated. Here’s part of it. I missed the part where he squirted hand sanitizer on himself. pic.twitter.com/68iaTFXMas

White Bear Mitsubishi
I don’t know why this is funny, but it is.
It was fun to see this going around again in early 2022, but it’s original source is from six years earlier. Here’s some local news coverage on the viral video.

Bunking with Cheetahs
A family of Cheetah sleep with the forest guard every night.The Forest Dept wanted to investigate this this claim by installing a CCTV camera. This is what the camera recorded! Not sure if the storyline is true but the Bonding is genuine and amazing. #animals pic.twitter.com/dop6DXMG0s

Like a Bear Robbed of Her Cubs…
Okay, this one is slightly terrifying at first, but everything comes out alright in the end. The local news covered the event and its aftermath.
A mom doing what moms do—whatever is necessary.

Excalibur in the SEC
Did I mention that LSU beat Alabama this year? That was awesome. Also, Jimbo and Saban didn’t get along in the off-season.

Ukraine Children’s Choir
This video actually posted long before 2022, but it began going around again after the war in Ukraine started. It’s just a glimpse of what things were like in Ukraine before the invasion. The cutest thing about it is that you can hear their little accents even through the singing. I think I like this cover version better than the original.
