So, I just learned that according to Google, there is a scientific way to find out which Youtube video is actually the funniest. Seriously.
They’ve developed some algorithm and set up this cool little voting system called Youtube Comedy Slam where you can vote on which video you like better, earn points, bla bla bla.
Google engineer Sanketh Shetty explained the methodology for finding the funniest YouTube video in this blog post.
“We focused on videos uploaded in the comedy category. We captured the uploader’s belief in the funniness of their video via features based on title, description and tags. Viewers’ reactions, in the form of comments, further validate a video’s comedic value,” he wrote.
“…We noticed that viewers emphasize their reaction to funny videos in several ways: e.g. capitalization (LOL), elongation (loooooool), repetition (lolololol), exclamation (lolllll!!!!!), and combinations thereof. If a user uses an “loooooool” vs an “loool”, does it mean they were more amused?” asks Shetty.
So, without further wasting of time, I present to you the Funniest Youtube Video of all time and crank your speakers for just a little more enjoyment.
And, here’s the funniest Youtube video of the week
What’s your vote?
