It goes without saying 2020 was a Vegas buffet of awfulness and suffering. But damn, there were a few video snippets that brought me such joy when I saw them that I made a note to round them up at the end of the year. Herewith:
The moment these two kids discovered the drum solo in the middle of “In the Air Tonight”
This genius Yakult+Sprite+soju smoothie demo, on TikTok:
this taste like strawberry milkshake 😲 #fyp #soju #tuesday
This breakdown of Rudy Giuliani’s COVID-spreading ways on TikTok:

This recounting of a beach date is my fave TikTok of the year:
im drunk here’s a story #foryoupage #fyp #voiceeffects #TimeforTENET
BTS’ “Dynamite” dropped sometime in the summer when we were in a curfew (for the protests and potential police violence) in the midst of a stay-at-home order (for the plague). And damn, it is still such a bop.
And of course, this moment at an LA gas station, the night the election was finally called for Biden.
