Top 5 videos to boost your mood


Amazing Horse

Everyone could use a lift now and then. YouTube is more than just a treasure trove of silly Korean music videos and animals riding on skateboards. It’s home to some of the most inspirational, mood-lifting material anywhere in the world.

Here are five videos that are sure to boost your mood.


1. The Rocky I Training Montage

Yo, Adrian! This first video comes from the 1976 boxing epic “Rocky.” In case you’ve never seen Sylvester Stallone’s masterpiece, it’s a story about a down-on-his-luck boxing amateur struggling against all odds to win an upcoming bout with the world heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed.

What’s even more inspirational is that Stallone only had $106 in the bank, no car, and tried to sell his dog to help finance the film, making “Rocky” a semi-autobiographical film about a man struggling to pursue his dreams.


2. Tunak Tunak Tun

There seems to be an unspoken rule in the far east ­— all music videos must be completely ridiculous with puzzling visuals (looking at you, Gangnam Style…).

But long before Psy was running around shouting at butts, Daler Mehndi was having people inexplicably jump up and dance to his Punjabi hit “Tunak Tunak Tun.” Don’t spend too much time wondering why he and his clones suddenly fell from space and started dancing around exotic locales. Just get up and dance.


3. Amazing Horse

Remember that badger-badger-badger video back from the 90s? You probably saw it back when was relevant. Either way, the guy behind it, Weebl, continued producing silly looping songs and eventually produced this gem, “Amazing Horse.”

This video does contain some phallic imagery, so it’s technically NSFW. But watch it a couple of times at home and you’ll have the lyrics committed to memory before long. It’s a truly inspiring tale of galactic proportions that belongs on any respectable list of funny vids.


4. B Double-O T Y

Chiefrocca is the quintessential hype-man. In less than 30 seconds, he has an entire audience of people who’ve never seen him before up on their feet and shaking their b-double-o-t-ys.

His self-proclaimed “one-hit wonder” is so simple that you can’t help but smile. Ignore Heidi Klum’s reference to her alleged butt rash. The only mildly depressing thing about this video is that Chiefrocca doesn’t have any inclination to make more musical masterpieces in the future.


5. Goats Yelling Like Humans

The human-like screams of these goats are one of nature’s most beautiful phenomena. Their sultry, dulcet tones can soothe anyone into a deep state of inner tranquility. Just kidding. But it makes you wonder… what’s got all these goats so upset?

Maybe they’re voicing their concerns about being exploited for your amusement in YouTube videos. Or maybe they’re the reincarnated souls of long-dead individuals who, ironically, had a goat phobia in their past life and now live every minute in a petting zoo hell.

Four out of five fictional doctors agree—these videos are the perfect drug-free alternative to treating depression and melancholy.
