As we all know, YouTube is just a big, scary, overwhelming jumble of videos, some of which go viral in a major way (see: the Ice Bucket Challenge videos, the Apparently Kid videos, etc.)

To help make things a bit more manageable for all of us, director and video editor Luc Bergeron went through all the year’s viral videos — 233, to be exact, — and then crammed all the best moments into one digestible supercut.

It’s been quite a year. There were cute animals. There were dumb animals. There were daredevils who risked their lives just to make a cool video. There was an impressive amount of dancing. There was awkward kissing. There was ice being dumped on people’s head. And so, so much more.

Enjoy.
