Fangirlish Favorites: YouTube Cheat Sheet

2014 is quickly drawing to a close–but before we ring in the New Year, we’ll be reflecting on our favorite media and moments of the year. Today, members of the Fangirlish team are sharing the YouTube videos they’ve been loving recently. Need a Monday morning pick-me-up now that the holiday weekend is over? One of these should put a smile on your face.

Elena: Elizabeth Banks’ “Ask a Badass”

Elizabeth Banks’ entire YouTube channel but specifically Ask A Badass with Jennifer Lawrence.

Erin: Zoella

I’m obsessed with Zoella lately. I wanted to watch her videos after all the controversy surrounding her book. Hey, I give props to her.

Katie C.: How to Care for Your Cermet

Jenna Marbles uploaded a video called “How To Care for Your Cermet” and it doesn’t matter how many times I watch it, I laugh hysterically every time. I don’t even know why it’s so funny but I can never not laugh.

Katie M.: Markiplier

If there’s anything you should watch over on YouTube, it should be Markiplier’s channel. I first came across him when I was looking up the Oculus Rift. Eventually I came across his live play of Five Nights at Freddy’s, an indie horror game where you escape animatronics trying to stuff you in a decommissioned Freddy suit. And, boy, did I laugh HARD at his antics. Markiplier, really Mark Fischbach, is so expressive when playing videogames. Especially with horror games. And, most especially, with Five Nights At Freddy’s. But, I warn you, this game has A LOT of jumpscares!

Chloe: Conan’s Take on Benedict Cumberbatch’s Engagement

A must-watch for anyone who was devastated by Benedict Cumberbatch’s engagement (seriously, Ben, we’re happy for you).
