December 16, 2019


– I was there! I was in
the front row when this happened. – (both) ♪ Hide your kids ♪
♪ Hide your wife ♪ – ♪ Hide your kids ♪
♪ Hide your wife ♪ – (both) ♪ Hide your kids ♪
♪ Hide your wife ♪ ♪ (dramatic chord) ♪ – (FBE) So today, we wanted
to test your knowledge on some of the biggest videos
on the internet. – Okay! This’ll be interesting.
I don’t know how well I know this. – (FBE) So, we’ll be showing you
10 viral videos from 2010 to 2019, and we’re gonna see if you can
correctly guess what year each video came out.
– Okay. This is nostalgia. – Ohhh, I can do that.
– This is perfect. I feel I can I do that.
– I can do that. Do you see who I have
with me here? She showed me 10 viral videos
while we were waiting to do this. – I’m basically a meme historian. – (FBE) So, we’ve chosen
one viral video from each year, staring with 2010
all the way through 2019. – Okay.
– (FBE) There will not be any repeat years.
And then at the end, every video you get right,
you get a point. – Okay, great.
If you were gonna ask me based on views or what
the video was, I could probably answer it accurately,
but I’m really bad at timing I feel like.
I have no concept of time. – We suck at these.
– Why do you guys make us do these? – We’ll see how we do. – (professor) Scandals
happen all the time. The question is how do democracies
respond to those scandals. – I’ve seen this. Yeah. – (laughs)
– I love it! – (anchor) I think one
of your children’s just walked in. – Aww.
– (professor) I would be surprised if they do. – The poor dad and the poor mom!
Oh my god. – (snickers) Everything about this
was so iconic. – The quality is good,
so it looks like it would have to be 2016/2017.
– You’ve never seen that video? – No!
– That’s the best video. That kid comes struttin’ in,
like, “I’m gonna mess up your whole day.”
– I’ma go 2018. I feel like that was pretty recent.
– 2016? I don’t really know! – 2017. For a year,
I was imitating this! (laughs) – I’ve watched this.
– Ew. – (man) I guess not good.
– Ewww. – I like the message
that they’re trying to send, but sad that they have to
send a message in the first place. – Ew, shut up.
– I’m gonna go with 2018. – Ah! It’s either ’15 or ’16.
Okay, I’m gonna say ’16. – I’m gonna go smack dab
in the middle. We’re gonna go ’15. – That seemed older
just ’cause of the camera quality. 2014? That feels wrong. – ♪ I have a pen ♪
– Ohhh! Pen pineapple pen! – Oh, no. Pineapple pen. – ♪ I have a pen ♪
– I have never seen this before. – Pineapple pen! – Have you seen this?
– No! – Are you kidding?
– I love this. – ♪ Ah ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Pen pineapple apple pen ♪
♪ Da, da, da ♪ Oh, stopped it.
(laughs) – 2010, because I– that’s when I–
I don’t remember that video. – I have no perception of time
or years or days. 2016. – It’s either ’14 or ’15,
so just put it at ’14 for now, and then we can
switch them later, yeah? – I have to say 2016,
because I already used 2017 and 2018.
Where is this guy? Has anyone found him since? – (Antoine) Well, obviously we have…
– Ohhhh! – I love this one!
Is it the song? – ♪ He climbin’… ♪
– (sings along) ♪ In your windows ♪ ♪ He snatchin’ yo people up ♪
– Oh, so the remix of this. Okay, cool.
– (both) ♪ Hide your kids ♪ ♪ Hide your wife ♪
– ♪ Hide your kids ♪ ♪ Hide your wife ♪
– (both) ♪ Hide your kids ♪ ♪ Hide your wife ♪
– ♪ And hide your husband ♪ ♪ ‘Cause they’re rapin’
everybody out here ♪ ♪ You don’t have
to come and confess ♪ ♪ We lookin’ for you ♪
– (sings along) ♪ We gon’ find you ♪ ♪ We gon’ find you ♪
– ♪ You can run and tell that ♪ ♪ Run and tell that ♪
– Low-key, it slaps. – ♪ …homeboy ♪
♪ Home, home, homeboy ♪ – Legendary. I’m gonna say 2013.
– 2011. And I hope I’m right. – This is one of the first
videos that I ever saw go really, really viral
on the platform, and I probably started watching
YouTube in around 2010. So, this very well could be
the beginning of our list. – Oh, this is now, right?
Yes! This– I saw this on Twitter. So amazing. – Oh, yes, girl. Work.
I’ve never seen this before. – I love this song.
– Ooh, but great song choices. – There she go!
– This is definitely this year. – Wow. OHHH! YES!
(squeals) – Wow! That looked painful
but impressive at the same time. – That’s amazing.
Okay, so it probably went viral ’cause she got a perfect 10.
– I’m just gonna say 2018, ’cause that definitely
wasn’t this year. – Oh, that’s awesome.
– She killed it. – Okay, that’s this year?
– Yeah, for sure. – I look at it,
and I just give it 10 points all right there.
I’m just like, “You have so much confidence.
Here’s a 10!” I’m gonna guess just since
I’ve never seen it before, it must be a new one.
So, I’m gonna say 2019. – (voice-over) Arresting
Joseph Kony will prove… – Oh my gosh!
All the celebrities were doing this! – Wow! I forgot about this one.
– (voice-over) …brought our planet together.
– Gotta be 2012. Kony 2012. – I know this,
because Kony 2012. – This was when
I was a senior in high school. – This is 2012.
I know, ’cause it was Kony 2012. I know that for a fact.
Next! – That video– I was
frickin’ turnt on justice! – This was all a sham, huh?
2012. – 2015 is too recent for that.
I think that was 2013. – We’re gonna put it
as ’12 for now, but I think it might’ve
been 2011, ’cause it said 2011. And if we get that wrong… – It’s your fault.
– ♪ (vocalizing) ♪ ♪ (yodeling) ♪
– Oh. This is recent. – He’s good!
– (sings along) ♪ That last long day she said goodbye ♪
♪ Well, Lord, I thought I would cry ♪ – What an icon.
– ♪ She’s got that kind of lovin’ ♪ ♪ Lord, I love to hear her… ♪
– Here it comes. ♪ Sweetie-ay-ay-ay ♪
(laughs) That’s one of my favorite
videos of all time. – Nice.
– I love it. Now we have a problem…
– Crap. – …’cause that is
very recent. – Crap.
– I’ma say 2015. – I think we got that one in the bag.
– That’s for sure 2018. – I met Mason Ramsey.
He’s a friend of mine. He’s cool.
Shoutout to Mason Ramsey. ♪ (upbeat hip-hop music) ♪ – (gasps) Oh!
I remember this one! This has been around
for a long time. – Oh, this is old.
– This was a stunt. This was completely fake. – Ooh! – (woman screaming) – Stop, drop, roll!
Stop, drop, roll! – Ah!
– That had to have been staged. The dude is right–
oh, it’s Jimmy Kimmel. – (woman) Thanks, Jimmy Kimmel.
– I forgot that was Jimmy Kimmel! – When did twerking
become a thing? (sighs) I still don’t know how
to twerk, but that’s not relevant. – Let’s give this to 2011.
I feel like when the word “twerk” first came out…
– We’re gonna put it at 2014 for now. – 2011. But he’s 2013.
I know this. I don’t know this,
but I’m acting like I know this, so you, as a viewer,
feel more confident in my winning. – (Steve) Miss Universe…
– Oh my gosh! – Is that the moment he messed up?
– I was there! I was in the front row
when this happened. It was crazy. – (Steve) Colombia!
– (laughs) Noo! – (Steve) I have to apologize.
– This was so bad. – (Steve) The first runner up
is Colombia. – (groans) Cringe.
– It’s just like the Oscars, except this happened first.
– I literally have secondhand embarrassment
from watching this. – I put it at 2014.
– 2011 spot, but I’m gonna switch it. How do you make
a mistake like that? – We are going to win this.
Pageant is supposed to go around here somewhere.
– Yes. – Okay. All right.
We have one more video, and then we will
figure all of this out. – ♪ It’s Friday, Friday ♪
♪ Gotta get down on Friday ♪ – Classic.
– ♪ Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend ♪
– (sings along) ♪ Friday, Friday ♪ – ♪ Getting down on Friday ♪
– I actually like this song. – ♪ Everybody’s looking forward… ♪
– (sings along)♪ To the weekend ♪ My hand is a dolphin.
– My hand is a dolphin! – Your boy’s going for 2010.
I think I’m right. – ♪ Looking forward
to the weekend ♪ – Fun, fun, fun.
– Okay, I think that is 2011. – I think so!
– Are we killing it? – I actually don’t feel bad
putting this one here. So, Friday for 2012. – I’m 95% sure
I got 95% of these right. – (FBE) All right, so now that
you have watched through all of these, we’re gonna give you a chance
to make changes. Let us know when you’re locked.
– All right. So, I’m gonna say fire video
at 2016. – I know for a fact
that Mason Ramsey’s 2018. I know for a fact that Kony was 2012.
I do have a strong inkling that Mr. Antoine Dodson
was definitely 2010 as, like, the start of YouTube.
– Jimmy Kimmel was ’13. – I think so. He’s been around
for a while on YouTube. – Mm-hmm.
– Am I wrong about catcall? Is catcall gonna be the old one?
Fiddle darns. Let’s just lock it in. – All right, lock it in.
– Let the internet judge how they may. – (FBE) Here is the actual order for–
– Eeee! Okay, here we go.
– Okay. – (FBE) From 2010 is
the “Bed Intruder” song. – Seriously?!
Oh, daggone! I was off by one year!
– That was that long ago?! Wow, I am old.
Okay, great. – Yay!
– Nailed it. – Yay!
– We got it! – (both) Yay!
– Yes! (claps) Mr. Antoine Dodson! Okay, got it.
One point for me. – (FBE) Then from 2011
is “Friday.” – Oh my god.
I was close. – Yay!
– Yeah! Nailed it. – (both scream excitedly)
– We did it! – We’re off to a great start!
– I’m off again! I should’ve moved
everything up a year. – That was 2011?!
No! Are you kidding me?! That was eight years ago? – (FBE) From 2012
is Kony 2012. – I got that. Yes.
– They’re all in the same area, just wrong years.
– I remember Kony 20– it’s emblazoned in my head.
– I just got all three of those mixed up.
Boo! Okay. I’m probably gonna get
absolutely zero points. – (FBE) 2013 is Jimmy Kimmel
twerking prank. – I was right there!
I can get a half a point or something. – YES!
– Ooh! – Yes! I got it right!
– Woo-hoo! I got a point! – (FBE) 2014 is the girl
walking in NYC. – Boo! Okay.
– I put “Hide Yo Kids,” so I was wrong.
– (both) Ohhhh. – It is older!
– (claps) I got a point! – (FBE) From 2015 is Steve Harvey
announcing the wrong Miss Universe. – That was in 2015?!
WHAT?! – I was– oh my god, I must’ve
been literally 17 or something. – I thought that was 2019! (laughs)
Oh my g– what?! That was four years ago? – (FBE) All right, 2016
is Pen Pineapple Apple Pen. – Woo! I’m glad I changed that. – Ahhh!
– Oooh! – 2016?! So, then all
of these are off. – Wow, I’m straight trash
at this. I do not deserve
to be a YouTuber. – (FBE) 2017 is the BBC interview.
– (both) Got that one. – Oh, I put that one
as 2015. – Wow. That was recent. Okay.
– What?! No! That came so much earlier! – (FBE) 2018 is Walmart yodeling kid.
– Okay. Yay. – Yes! Okay, cool.
One point! – Yes! I knew that one!
– Got that. I’m at three points. Dang.
I did better than I thought. – That was last year?
He went to Coachella last year. He picked that up quick. – (FBE) And 2019
is Katelyn Ohashi’s floor routine. – The gymnast.
– (FBE) The gymnast. – She killed it.
– Good job, sis. I’m impressed. – Wonderful.
– We did pretty good! – We did pretty gosh dang.
– We did pretty good!! – I got a point,
so I’m happy. I got at least one,
so I can go home happy. – It’s crazy, ’cause so many are
uploaded to YouTube every single day that you really do start
to lose track of when things came out. – I think we did pretty good.
