The dog tease is probably my favorite, but I like this one. I don't think it is scripted:



And this old AFV clip comes to mind (don't blame me for the title):

I have many 'favorite' videos saved to a folder. One, however, stands above the rest. It was posted by a fellow forum member several months ago.
Compliments of DFW_M5. "Change for a Dollar"

This is beautiful. In feeling, it reminds me of a German film from 20-25 years ago which carried the English Title "Wings of Desire".

T-Al's wedding vid reminded me of this one. I love it because it's full of love, music, friends, and dancing! What a great way to start out in life together.

Love this because it takes me back to a different time and place. The film was shot shortly before the big 1906 earthquake in San Francisco.



And this one because it highlights the bad decisions people sometimes make. Seriously, who picked this for the in flight movie?

Which he refused to accept because all of his friends and family back home swore his accent was "gone". So he and his wife, who was also from that area with even more of an accent, were on a roadtrip. They're running late and decided to use OnStar to make a call, voice recognition was the only option, first time they tried it. He said they tried about 10 times, each of them, carefully enunciating, but couldn't place the call. We teased him about it, telling him he was too cheap, and needed to purchase the southern accent option.
