Over the past year and a half I’ve produced one “watchable” Stuff to Watch article every week. I’ve touched on a lot of topics in that time, from free film noir Crime, Corruption & Dastardly Deeds: 6 Film Noir Classics That Have It All [Stuff To Watch] Crime, Corruption & Dastardly Deeds: 6 Film Noir Classics That Have It All [Stuff To Watch] Welcome one and all to a new regular feature here at MakeUseOf, crudely titled “Stuff to Watch”.

Maybe these are videos your girlfriend will love too. Maybe you even happen to be one of these mysterious girlfriend creatures. Maybe my girlfriend will loosen the clamps on this desk soon, my wrists are getting sore.

Without further ado (please send help) here’s my first girlfriend-approved list of videos and YouTube channels.

ZeFrank1

Ze Frank is a performance artist, comedian and composer who lives in Los Angeles and spends much of his time creating the sort of YouTube videos your boss wishes you wouldn’t watch. His YouTube channel enjoys in excess of half a million subscribers, with viral videos like Sad Dog Diary proving very popular among the cool kids of Facebook and Reddit.

In addition to the rather recent Sad Dog and Sad Cat diaries, Ze has enjoyed success with his True Facts series which you can see below. Unsurprisingly, these are not necessarily true facts.

Petsami

The Petsami YouTube channel has arguably one of the best collections of hilarious pet home videos on YouTube. Like a constantly running episode of America’s Funniest Videos, if you’re easily entertained by videos like the above then you’re in the right place.

eldad75

Not just a collection of dog videos, but videos of homeless dogs being rescued! Prepare to have your stone cold heart of ice melt as YouTube user eldad75 gives terrified defenseless animals cheeseburgers and love.

The only criticism I have of this channel is that the background music on 90% of the videos is so unimaginably bad I have to mute the sound to watch them. That doesn’t change the fact that this is one YouTube user making a huge difference through the actions and messages of his videos.

You can catch up with the Hope for Paws charity and make a donation on their website, subscribe to keep up with eldad75’s latest rescues.

Teddy The Porcupine

Now in a show of unbelievable cuteness I present Teddy, a porcupine that “talks”. Well, he doesn’t talk like you or me but he’s more than happy to vocalise his love for corn, frozen bananas and anything else his adoptive mother Allison will feed him.

Allison is YouTube user Zooniversity1 who adopted Teddy after he was orphaned and found in a barn in West Texas. He now enjoys a huge following online, a Facebook Page and spends his time travelling to schools and libraries.

Shamed Dogs

My girlfriend is obsessed with – what I am told is one of the best new blogs of the moment – Dog Shaming. It would appear there is nothing cuter than a shamed dog, and now there’s pictorial and video proof of this fact all over the Internet.

The fad involves catching your dog after an act of destruction, pointing out said facts and photographing or recording the results to hilarious effect.

Baby Sloths!

I just typed the words “baby sloth bath” in an article that is due to be published on a tech site, but I’m not ashamed of that fact. Why? Because the video above is like a form of therapy. You simply can’t not get a kick out of it. Go on, try.

These adorable videos come from Animal Planet who are clearly demonstrating that they “get” YouTube with this sort of promotion. You can see more in their aptly named show Too Cute! Baby Sloths.

Finally…

Sometimes videos like this are all you need to inject some humour and a smile into a bad day. Who cares how much it costs your boss in lost productivity per year – you owe it to yourself to watch sloths frolicking in baths.

If you (or your girlfriend) have any similar videos that you’d like to share that brighten your day, then stick them in the comments, below.
