The Best of VICE on YouTube 2013

It’s been a crazy year for VICE. Our HBO show was nominated for an Emmy, Ad Age called us the Publishing Company of the Year, and our YouTube channel hit almost 4 million subscribers. As a great man once said, “that shit’s cray.”

To celebrate 2013—and to give you something to do while sneaking sips of whisky and avoiding your family during Christmas—we’ve compiled the 30 best videos we released across our YouTube network for your viewing pleasure. 3D-printed guns, Soylent, West African truckers, and paintballing with Tyler, the Creator; it’s all there.

We’d say, “you’re welcome,” but we’d rather say, “thank you.” Thank you for making 2013 our favorite year since, like, forever.


Jim DeRogatis’ Top Ten of 20121. Tame Impala, LonerismI’ve got a soft spot for DeRogatis because he wrote a Lester Bangs biography and managed to get it published. It’s a great read. DeRogatis has a soft spot too, and it’s everywhere on his body.
