Keep Westword Free

Back to school: The five best YouTube videos

Denver kids returned to school today. To celebrate, we scoured YouTube for the five best "first day of school" videos.

After watching more than a dozen, we came to a stunning conclusion: Teenagers are offensive. It was hard to find a single video without a curse word, offensive taunt or sexual reference. So enjoy! If nothing else, be glad you're no longer fifteen.

The best part of this video is when she gives advice about the age-old question of whether to wear your trendiest outfit on the first day of school or the second day of school. (The second, der.) Also, watch for her notes to herself. It's a cardigan! A cardigan!!

The Sexinators? What?

The slow motion water-drinking scene is cinematic genius.

This is so very high school. "I already ate, asshole."

Five stars for polar bear pajama pants, indeed.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
