* The playlist known as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6EoRBvdVPQ&list=PL7XlqX4npddfrdpMCxBnNZXg2GFll7t5y important videos]]" is both a meme and a source of memes. It frequently pops up as a "Recommended Video" and thus many people have clicked on it. The playlist has over 400 million views. It features short videos, many under 20 seconds and almost all under 1 minute. These videos are a range of funny or weird things, such as SoBadItsGood videos, tv quotes, jokes, and {{narm}}ish movie scenes. On the videos itself, it is a meme to post a comment [[DelayedReaction on the next video in the playlist]] instead of on the proper video.
