Baby Trashes Bar In Las Palmas
Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

Miniatures? Check. Puppets? Check. Giant drunk baby staggering all over the place, knocking over stuff like it's nothing, picking food off strangers' plates and spitting up everywhere? Jackpot. In this trailer for his short film Las Palmas, Swedish filmmaker Johannes Nyholm nails my Friday nights at the Cha Cha Lounge.

As soon as this video hit the internet, people fell in love with it, giving the filmmaker some great exposure, but more importantly, showing us how we are clearly all children when we drink too much.

The Shaytards Youtube channel began in October 2008 when the patriarch of the family, ShayCarl, filmed himself talking about wanting to lose weight. More than 1,200 video posts and nearly half a billion views later, the Shaytards may be the most prolific — and happiest — family vloggers in all of history.

Events documented vary from the mundane to the milestone, including youngest of four, baby Rocktard's birth, first steps, and first words.

The Dancing Baby
Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

One of the first viral videos of all time, as well as one of the most ubiquitous, this is a viral baby that started in the only way something could in 1996: email chains.

Originally a sample file from a 3-D computer animation software, this GIF/video was soon given the soundtrack of "Hooked on a Feeling" by Rusted Root (originally by BJ Thomas), and was sent around LucasArts by the person who did it. Eventually, the people who originally sent the email around started getting it back from other people in the company and soon afterwards, from friends of theirs from around the world.

It got so huge that it even made it on the then-popular TV series "Ally McBeal," which is sometimes credited for having brought the baby to fame, but much like most viral videos and internet memes, it started the way anything else does on the internet: with nerds.

The Baby That Humps The Doll
Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

With over 5 million views worldwide, this is one of the most famous (early) viral clips from 2006, when YouTube was but wee baby itself.

It made a huge splash on YouTube early on. It really is the weirdest one on this list, but really plainly shows you that this kid's parents do a lot of one kind of thing while he's in the same room.
