"Lazy Sunday" - A 2005 Saturday Night Live sketch written and performed by Andy Samburg and Chris Parnell in which the two engage in a hip-hop song about their plans for a lazy Sunday afternoon. The song was uploaded by fans to YouTube, at that time a relative small, new site, and had been watched by millions of users before it was taken down as a copyright violation by NBC. This created the idea of being able to provide reuse of television material on the Internet, giving shows a second life, and is stated to have established YouTube as a potential revenue source for television networks, contributing towards Google's purchase of the site for $1.6 billion in 2006.
"Man's Not Hot" - A freestyle rap by British comedian Michael Dapaah. The freestyle features Dapaah saying unintelligible phrases and words such as "The ting goes skrrrahh" which made the video into a meme which was remixed with various songs.
