My Top 10 YTMND’s

For those of you without office jobs and consequently without hours in a day where you can freely roam the productivity hindering wasteland that is the Internet, you may have never come across a little gem of a web page called YTMND ( The premise of the page is simple. Users put images or animations to music to make a statement, a parody, social commentary or just to be weird. About 80 percent of the website is incomprehensible garbage, but some of it is hilarious and in rare occasions artistic. To give you a little history, YTMND stands for “you’re the man now, dog” which comes from the first YTMND ever created. The first YTMND was actually a clip from the trailer of Finding Forrester where Sean Connery utters that phrase. That one clip spawned an underground society of YTMNDers who update the site constantly with new content. To help you wade through the mediocrity, I’ve compiled a list of my all time top 10 favorite YTMND’s. Enjoy!

10. Even Martians Know NBC - - Even innocent looking puppets are lurking about the Internet to steal your children’s innocence. Good thing there is one journalist welling to fight for perverted justice.

9. Lex Luthor > Lil Jon - - Kevin Spacey’s over-the-top portrayal of Lex Luthor was YTMND fodder for quite a while.

8. New Talent on 60 Minutes - - The intro to 60 Minutes featuring some new, unlikely anchors.

7. Vader on Wheel of Fortune - - The Dark Lord of the Sith tries his luck at every grandmother’s favorite game show.

6. Luke Skywalker belts out a face melter - - Who knew Luke Skywalker could rock?

5. Cosby Bebop - - If you’ve never seen the intro to the anime, Cowboy Bebop, you might not think this is funny. Bill Cosby is the butt of many YTMND jokes.

4. Jon Arbuckle does Thriller - - Remember the video to Michael Jackson’s Triller? Jon Arbuckle does!

3. Batman: ualuealuealeuale - - You always knew Adam West was a little off.

2. Holy shi* it's a Dinosaur! WTF? - - Putting words to any John Williams song is funny I don’t care who you are.

1. PowerPoint: Death Star Attack - - The presentation of how to destroy the Death Star had the rebels had the superior technology that is Microsoft Office.
