What a crazy year, eh? Well, it ain’t over until the JibJab sings, and that would be today. The humor site has its 112-second acid flashback of 2014 up this morning, and it’s packed with the sublime and the ridiculous. Midway through, there’s a touching salute to those who left us this year, but otherwise it’s a tongue-in-cheek look at the year, including Kim Kardashian’s cheeks, ifyouknowwhatImeanandIthinkyoudo:
Ferguson makes it into the mix without much editorial comment, as do departed entertainers, but those are the few topics and personalities who simply get a name-check. Obama gets a tweak, as do Justin Bieber, Bill Cosby, Vladimir Putin, Gwyneth Paltrow and her “consciously-uncoupled” spouse, Jay-Z, and Shia LaBoeuf, who disappears under a paper bag. GamerGate gets a mention — kudos, JibJab! — and Republicans get a salute for winning Congress. Weird Al rings down the curtain on a weird year, but at least we all get a laugh out of it. Now, anyway.
It won’t break the Internet, but it’s good for a fun break. Enjoy.
