This is an annual December feature. It’s time to look back at 2010 – the high times, the low classy times, and all the amazingness in between. If there are moments that stand out in particular for you, please let me know.

I couldn’t think of a better way to kick this off though than with Salma and that Snake. I must have watched it 20 times over and over again as soon as it was sent to me. There is SO MUCH GOLD in just 50 short seconds. From her stilettos, to her groans, to her increasingly louder groans, to a placid Maya Rudolph who gets straight up stepped on and still maintains the exact opposite reaction…

And then Salma’s rescued at the end… by what appears to be her hairstylist!!!

But the best is when she’s missing for the post-interview. Where’s Salma? Salma had to go lie down, dude. Salma was still recovering on a bed of gold feathers with servants massaging her temples and feeding her grapes.

Few videos that don’t involve Mariah Carey make me this happy.
