Mind you, these weren't just popular, they were HUGELY popular, racking up millions and millions of views, likes, and shares. Most of them are quite funny (it's a good thing we can laugh at ourselves), some are shocking, and some inspiring. Even if you've seen them before, we think you'll love seeing them all again.
