Funny YouTube Videos... Motivational Tool?

The world of YouTube is filled with information coming from all different sources. I use videos all the time to supplement lessons, but what about the use of videos for a different purpose, in my case, the addition of humor into a classroom. I used one video in particular as a motivation for my middle schoolers to complete a project nearing the end of the quarter, and as a wake up call first hour (7:30 am) to my sleepy high schoolers. I find these videos hilarious and even though it doesn't supplement the classroom material I enjoy their addition into my classroom. I welcome a funny viral video any day, as long as I can use it to my advantage... (insert mischievous teacher laugh here). Please enjoy my go-to motivational tool here.
