It goes without saying that the dogecoin community is a diverse collection of Internet denizens, mining geeks and pretty much everyone in between.

The altcoin, inspired by the love-it-or-hate-it internet meme, has gone on to form the basis for a variety of digital artworks, including a series of energetic and, at times, strange videos.

But you might be asking yourself, which video is the best? There’s only one way to find out: watching some of the best-known videos and seeing which one stands among the rest. CoinDesk has taken the liberty of reviewing five of YouTube’s best dogecoin videos, so sit back and enjoy the ride (to the moon, perhaps).

Ð is for Ðogecoin

Winner of the Dogecoin Hype Video Competition, held in February of this year, “Ð is for Ðogecoin” sports a snazzy soundtrack and eye-catching visuals that speak to the video’s impressive production quality.

The video netted its creator more than 370,000 DOGE, winning by a significant margin at the time, and featured the song “To The Moon” by artist Dunderpatrullen.

The video opens with the internet’s beloved shiba inu watching several news reports as it works on the coding for dogecoin. Once complete, the shiba launches – literally, on a rocket – into the cryptocurrency ecosystem with a kaleidoscopic ride through the coin’s rise to prominence.

Notable scenes include several miner’s cap-wearing shibas using GPUs to mine dogecoins before the aforementioned rocket takes off into orbit. Right before the video ends, we see the reddit alien waving as the doge-rocket ascends toward the moon.

The unabashedly named “dogecoin.avi” scored second place in the Dogecoin Hype Video Competition, and like that contest’s first-place winner, promotes dogecoin’s early history while looking ahead to its hoped-for ascension to “the moon”.

“dogecoin.avi” opens by addressing some of the criticisms levied against dogecoin since its inception. The maker of the video chose the theme song for the Japanese anime “Gurren Lagann”, the strangely titled “Row Row Fight The Power”.

As can be expected, this doge-focused video includes plenty of moon launch imagery. Superimposed over images of rockets flying are rising price charts. US President Barack Obama makes an appearance, shown saluting the dogecoin rocket as it makes its way to the moon.

The video, which scored the maker just under 125,000 DOGE in the video contest, closes with a reenactment of the Apollo 11 moon landing (by using footage from the film Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and a general call for donations in the dogecoin community.

Dogecoin Kiss

If there’s one thing that shibes love to do, it’s expressing their love for dogecoin. “Dogecoin Kiss: An original song about the world’s friendliest Cryptocurrency”, by singer-songwriter Katie Pham, celebrates the fun-loving nature of the dogecoin community.

As the lyrics say:

“What does it mean to be a shibe

Just listen up and I’ll show you soon

We’re little pups and we’re big believers

In a voyage straight to the moon.”

The song’s catchy melody speaks to the easy-go nature of your average shibe, whether they’re a casual owner or a full-time miner.

At the end of the song, she touches on the way that dogecoin has become a means of expressing thanks and appreciation, singing:


Yeah its a place to be

If I can’t send a hug through this

I’ll blow a little dogecoin kiss.”

"Dogecoin Kiss" won third place in the Doge Hype Video Competition, earning Pham roughly 65,000 DOGE.

Tyrone explains dogecoin

It's a virtual fact that members of the dogecoin community are passionate about what they love. For one fan, the alternative digital currencies embodies the spirit of community itself.

In the video, a man named Tyrone explains simply:

"What is dogecoin? It is internet money that can spread love and fly to the moon. It is currency that empowers people, not banks. Doge is love, doge is life."

He goes on to suggest that dogecoin will one day become "digital currency number one." Tyrone also offers a simple explanation of the mining process, as well as clarifying the correct pronunciation of dogecoin.

The speaker, who goes by the handle Greatgigsguy3 on online low-cost marketplace Fiverr, charged $5 for his statement.

Tyrone predicts that a single dogecoin will be worth US$1 by August, or six months after the video was released. At press time, one DOGE was worth approximately US$0.0004.

Doge-Powered Airport Invasion Party!

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a rowdy crowd of dogecoin-loving party-goers decided to descend on an international airport? With this video, your prayers are answered.

Organizers Tom and Gary, according to the video, led a diverse crowd for an "decentralized dance party" at Vancouver International Airport on New Year's Eve 2013. In addition to fun, balloons, music and dancing, the organizers made it possible for people to transmit bitcoin donations between party-goers through the use of wearable QR codes.

According to the video, the party had to shift locations several times due to security. At one point, the crowd used trains in Vancouver to keep moving and stay ahead of any possible disruption.

As far as parties go (and DOGE parties, for that matter), this New Year's Eve set the tone for doge-themed celebrations.
