List of YouTube video URLs with words in them?

After a quick check, I couldn’t find any blog or otherwise listing of YouTube video URLS (addresses) that contained words in the scrambled character identifier, so thought I’d start it off with one I’ve found.

I like coming upon captchas that spell out something inadvertently, and since YouTube video addresses are a muddled, automated process in creation, you don’t get to pick whether they have one series of jumbled characters or another, so finding one with actual words in them is a little of an “infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters” kind of thing.

If you find any (or a site that lists them), please post them in the comments below. The one I’ve found so far is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPaFT-nJobs .. The video itself is about a nonsense topic about someone else on Facebook, with little pertinent substance to anybody but her immediate friends and seems otherwise unremarkable.

  1. /watch?v=LoLoL-U5F2M /watch?v=paxobd-fuck /watch?v=1GUDHo-hack /watch?v=Porn-QKrRLg /watch?v=spain-hQYTw /watch?v=Golf-O0EBU4
    I could list 100s of them, I found out a way to find them in like, a second 😀

    • Aww, I was going just from serendipity.. I tried guessing your strategy and came up with watch?v=rAnK-uXl9Fk, watch?v=GOof-H_OXPM, watch?v=oBFB26-lAck, and watch?v=sLAb-B_AnIs.. are you manually searching with INURL? =)

      • All you have to do is google “inurl:word inurl:youtube.com/watch” (minus quotes).
        For instance, if you wanted to find a video URL that included “tab”, you would search

        inurl:tab inurl:youtube.com/watch

        Which returns results:
        /watch?v=tAb-mEF7__A
        /watch?v=TAb-URz6qvA
        /watch?v=t-TAB-CAq1c
        ..among others.

        However, I would encourage anyone wishing to submit any, to please only do so by happenstance of randomly encountering one, without intending to find one.

  2. Seriously, I can’t edit my post? Anyway, this is the video ID of the video above: -9T7HUg_xdM. Also notable for containing both a hyphen and and an underscore, the two,non-alphanumeric characters in YouTube video IDs.

    Here’s another good one: watch?v=2kyMyFOODA8

  3. my name is jacob dyer and i live in bristol. it is fantastic. i sound like barnaby bear. i like barnaby bear. one time he went to france. i went to france. but some kid burnt my neck. i didnt like it.

  4. Jacob Dyer is a dick, it would seem.
    mvandermast: lots of urls use the uppercase/lowercase/numbers and -_ thing to make a 64-bit per character code. It’s not a Youtube ‘thing’.
    And…what the hell are all you lot talking about??? Vaguely amusing Youtube urls??
    Bloody hell.
    Came here to looks for interesting Youtube urls, ’cause the last one I saw was watch?v=ahHD5kgKeyM which somehow struck my brain as kinda cool.
    Ok, it’s not.
    I got nothing.

    • After a while we realized that they could be discovered quite ordinarily just by googling them. For instance if you wanted to find one with the word DERP in it, you just google this:

      inurl:derp inurl:youtube.com/watch

      which returns:
      v=Derp-EQ3urg
      v=DErP-33mhVQ
      v=derp-YwYYNk
      v=derp-fc_yIU

      or janky —

      v=aUruV-jaNkY
      v=jANky-kjRV8
      v=Ck6fo-JAnKY
      etc

  5. watch?v=T2fQ4vyROpo

    Hector: “Mulla ei oo rahaa” (“I have no money”). A Finnish rock legend who released his first 7″ single in ’65. The URL ends in “ropo” which means money in Finnish.
