A Blast From The Past: Cringe Worthy Videos You’ll Want To Watch Again

Before the year ends, it’s always good to look back and reflect on things before moving forward. This isn’t really about that though. This is about looking back over the years and reminding ourselves what some people attempted to do simply because they had a camera and we all know that there is only one thing to do when you have a camera. That’s right! Make a cheesy video and break the internet.

Loki Boy is an interesting story if you’ve never heard it. This dude was squatting in a mansion in Florida. He even had his mom living there with him. She thought her son had made it as a musician and was doing great. But, that wasn’t the case at all. 

Loki Boy had a lot of people confused. He obviously got some studio time out of it. He was invited to clubs and enjoyed some special VIP moments. He even had girls hanging all over him because they thought he was the real deal. The fact of it was, he knew how to get stuff for free.

He was finally removed from the mansion and his story has mostly dropped from the headlines. But, he left us this gem that we will always be able to remember him. Before you watch the video, I’ll leave you with a quote he has on his Facebook, “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

This next video has provided me with so much enjoyment since I first saw it a few years ago. But, not the kind that the artist intended I’m sure. The popularity of the video is phenomenal with over six million views at this time. When you watch the video, you might scratch your head and wonder why yourself.

What I would like to know is where did she go? Why did she stop making videos? I know that she has had to endure a good bit of criticism over this song and the video she made to go along with it. But, her video has been shown on such shows as Ridiculousness and truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest…

With that kind of coverage, there is no sense in stopping. Gnesa had momentum and should have used it to launch herself into stardom. No, I’m not kidding. I’m not being sarcastic. Think about it. There are celebrities who have their faces on the television every day and they have no skills to show for it. At least, Gnesa has this video and that’s more than some celebrities who enjoy the spotlight every day.

And finally, this last one combines beautiful women with power tools. The thing is, I don’t know why. The video isn’t putting top of the line power tools on display. They’re just regular tools we’ve been using for years.

Plus, the clothes the ladies are wearing aren’t safe for the type of work they’re doing. When you drill, you shouldn’t have beautiful cleavage on display for hot debris to fly into and burn. High heels aren’t ideal on a construction site. So the whole video begs the question why? I know there isn’t any reason. Just enjoy watching these women work their power tools hard.
