From the Viral Video Archives

Posted By on Fri, Apr 1, 2011 at 11:20 AM

Ever wonder what those crazy kids were going wild about on YouTube back in 1911? Well, YouTube has cracked the vaults to offer a nostalgic look at the most popular viral videos of a century ago. It's rollicking fun for all!

If you haven't caught on yet, even YouTube has gotten in the spirit of April Fool's Day. (Yes kids, there really was a time before online videos, Twitter, Facebook, the Internet and even computers. It was back in the 1980s, when we had to regularly run from dinosaurs.)

The Internet video giant isn't the only one to get in on the fun. CNN.com's John Sutter has a roundup of some of the notable, foolish goings on for the day, including a job posting for an autocompleter (psychic powers a plus) and special deals for hipsters—yes, you, too, can look more attractive and intelligent with your own pair of black frame glasses without lenses!

We're hoping that the Angry Nerds game takes off, because why chuck birds at things when you can hurl pissed-off members of the IT team?
