Urlies 2011: The Best Viral Videos Of The Year

Every December Urlesque celebrates the best web culture trends of the year with awards called the Urlies. This year, along with our partners at HuffPost Comedy, we decided that instead of choosing the winners in each category on our own, we would do things a little differently.

We're going to let you, our readers, choose who wins the Urlies for Best Meme, Best Viral Video, Best Single-Topic Blog and Best Cute Thing for 2011. It's an unprecedented amount of power, but we have faith that we're leaving the task in good hands.

Today we're rolling out our nominees in the Best Viral Video category, which includes all of the bizarre music videos, weird web culture moments and ridiculous news stories you couldn't help but quote and forward to your friends until your brain hurt.

The competition is fierce in this category, so be sure to rate the videos and let us know if we missed anything in the comments!
