Happy 420! For these high holidays, sit back, relax, and take a deep breath of that good good. Alternatively, eat a nice cookie, brownie, or gummy with a little something extra in it.
Are you stoned yet? Looking for something to watch? Look no further! Some of these videos are music videos, some of them are compilations of incredible art, some of them are nature documentaries, and some of them are comic gold. The title is just because it’s 420, there’s only 23 individual clips (for now!) But the compilations count as multiple videos, okay?
#1 Zeds Dead – Lost You
Colorful and color shifting animated music video for Lost You (feat. Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy) by Zed’s Dead is sure to give your eyes something to look at.
#2 Rick and Morty x Run the Jewels – Oh Mama
This special Episode of Rick and Morty was directed by Juan Meza-Leon. It’s an intense mini adventure and an exciting bonus to the regular seasons (which, lets face it, are too few and far between). Watch it more than once for full effect!
#3 Aphex Twin – T69 Collapse
This video is wild. But actually very urban! Directed by Nicky Smith. Caution, it failed the Harding test for photosensitive epilepsy!
#4 – 46 (42!) Black and White Geometry Animations
I recommend watching on full screen. These black and white coded animations are draw you in with their variety, geometry, and dynamic movement. Check out Nakauchi Kiyoshi’s Instagram and website. Music from Badjer. Compilation created using Kapwing’s Montage Maker. Music added and video speed edited using Kapwing’s Studio.
#5 Morena – ✞ЯфPKiLLΔℤ
#6 Zeds Dead – White Satin
Zed’s Dead at it again. Trippy music video created by Anthony Francisco Schepperd with the music by Zeds Dead, “White Satin.” Technology takes over the natural world as whales, fish, deer, and more are absorbed. Consumption! Nature! Read into it what you will!
#7 Samsara: Intro and Myanmar
Do you have time on your hands? Whether or not you do, you should watch Samsara. It’s an incredible, feature length, visual documentary that is sure to blow your mind.
#8 42(!) Oddly Satisfying Animation Imagination
These oddly (or not odd at all) satisfying 3D animations using Cinema4D were created by Andrew Wannerstedt. Spheres glide through shapes perfectly, pendulums swing in unison with the space, and beautifully textured computer generated ropes tie themselves together. Check out Wannerstedt’s Instagram and we bsite. Music by HNNY. Compilation created using Kapwing’s Montage Maker. Music added and video speed edited using Kapwing’s Studio.

Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling directed this incredible claymation.
#18 BBC Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough
A true classic. Be it Planet Earth, Life, National Geographic, BBC, or otherwise are great to watch after you’ve dipped into your stash.
#19 Giraffes! (also BBC with David Attenborough)
If chill vibes are more your vibe, check out this video. Giraffes are pretty cool! This video has giraffes and both Australian and English accents, what else can anyone ask for?
#20 Planet Earth Parody
There’s Planet Earth, and then there’s ridiculous parodies.

If you’re a fan of Star Wars, humor, and song, this video will surely moisturize your dry eyes with laughter tears. Caution, it’s very catchy!

In this series with Zach Galifianakis, famous people you know and love (including Jerry Seinfeld, Cardi B, Hillary Clinton, Obama, Justin Beiber, Samuel Jackson, and more) have slightly uncomfortable conversations. Watch the wholes series here.
