The world is a strange place, filled with moments that'll make you scratch your head and ask, "How and why the hell did that happen?"
Why do the political campaigns resemble overly dramatic telenovelas acted on by pre-teens? Why does Japan seem to become weirder every passing year? Why does Hasht5 exist?
1) Dumb-ass drivers
2nd runner-up: Drunk driver-slash-councilor
We really don't get why people mention that they're a government official when they get into trouble. Doesn't that just get them into bigger trouble?
1st runner-up: Beast mode
We're not going to add to all the cyberbullying this guy has received because of the half-witted video of him driving recklessly and looking for trouble with other motorists. Instead, we're just going to leave this parody Kuya Jobert made and let it speak for itself. Beast mode, out!
Winner: Kuya Jobert parody
2) Weird Japan
2nd runner-up: Cockroach-blowing
A game where two cute girls try to blow everybody's favorite creepy crawler into each other's mouths by using a long transparent tube and their lung power. Not so cute now, eh?
1st runner-up: Ketchup Girl
Instead of an actual caption, we think it would be better for you to watch the video instead so you'll be as weirded out as we are. Why Japan? Why?
Winner: Handjob karaoke show
Okay, this we could actually work with. We know our neighbors could really use some help reaching those really high Aegis birits.
3) Politician fails (Since there were so many, we decided to break this up into three sub-categories)
2nd runner-up: Ninja DOM moves
Known for his breezy antics, it seems like the presidential seat isn't the only thing he's making the move on. Whether or not this would help his chances is beyond us.
1st runner-up: Roxas vs. Duterte
Nothing like a bit of drama to get some attention, right? Mar Roxas and Duterte have been exchanging verbal blows ever since the Davao mayor made his intentions of running for president known. From a sampalan sesh to a gunfight to the death, these two have been challenging each other to everything. Dance battle na lang, fantastic baby!
Winner: 'Scandalous' speech
After announcing his candidacy, Duterte found a public platform where he could speak his mind about how he was going to change the Philippines if he were elected president. Sadly, most netizens questioned his use of profanities throughout his speech and hardly concentrated on how good or bad his ideologies were.
4) Most awkward Mar Roxas videos
1st runner-up: Fist-bump
Ever since his Mr. Palengke days, Sec. Roxas' PR staff has been known for destroying keeping the guy’s image, erm, cool, hip, and relatable to, well, anyone. Here's a sad attempt of him trying to use the fist-bump from Big Hero 6, on a poor innocent child.
Winner: Fast Forward
You'd probably think that the video above was awkward enough to be the winner, right? Nope. We think it's a lot more awkward when the guy making fun of you magically turns into one of your supporters. How the hell did that happened? Well, a few curious college students have theories, if you're willing to read through some interesting comments.
5) Political parties gone wild
2nd runner-up: Liberal Party party
We could only guess what these guys were thinking when they hired sexy dancers to serve as "entertainment" for their shindig. Guess all publicity is good publicity…not really.
1st runner-up: Binay chair-throwers
When their beloved Mayor Junjun Binay was being threatened with suspension, his supporters showed the whole Philippines that they really knew how to throw a party, LITERALLY, by throwing Monobloc chairs at public enforcers of the law. Sheesh...
Here's a separate PNP interview:
It takes a special person to make Karen Davila look even smarter. After a series of fairly easy to answer questions, Alma Moreno continues to skirt around the bush, not really providing any substantial answers that'll help people understand her political stands. But hey, it made for great memes.
6) Most cringeworthy
2nd runner-up: Hasht5
Hasht5 is the best boy band in the entire world, and don't let other people tell you otherwise. Any video of them should be on any list worthy of their overwhelming talent. (You know we're being utterly sarcastic, right?)
1st runner-up: Pabebe Warriors
It's basically just two girls on-cam and another one off-cam, fighting for their freedom to pabebe as they please, which we think is a noble cause to fight for.
Steve Harvey proves to everyone how important careful reading is. Despite making the absolute worst mistake a human being could have made in a beauty contest and potentially scarring the ladies for life, there have been talks of having Mr. Harvey to host the pageant again for 2016. Yup, that’s just how the world works.
7) Hard-hitting news
2nd runner-up: INC allegedly abducts its own members
The whole Philippines was alarmed when former Iglesia Ni Cristo minister Lowell Menorca confirmed that he was held against his will by high members of the religious organization so he could be questioned about his knowledge about the church leadership.
1st runner-up: Montero Sport’s sudden kadyot
People are still debating whether or not this is human error, but one thing's for sure: This video shook the motorist world, as on-road safety was challenged for quite some time.
Winner (actually, losers): SAF44, Mamasapano Viral Video
The viral video of the encounter between the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF), the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), and the aftermath of the massacre woke the world up to what was really happening in Mindanao.

Japanese pro-eater Takeru Kobayashi added more world records to his resume
This particular incident crossed the line #JusticeForKian
Extra rice, please!
Let’s stop using our basketball shorts to go out shall we guys?
