By: Alyssa Jorgensen with John Fitch

In a galaxy far, far away, aka 2008, prepare to feel very, very old...

1. Star Wars According To A Three-Year-Old

If this wasn't the cutest yet most sophisticated video of 2008, then I don't know what was. 

"Obi Kenobi teaches Luke to learn how to do his little light-up sword, to try to block the little Poké Balls." 

2. Beyoncé 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)' Music Video 

Though 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)' wasn't officially added to her Vevo until 2009, the video was released to the public in October of 2008 and became a viral music sensation. 

3. Tina Fey Impersonates Sarah Palin on SNL

"I can see Russia from my house."

4. Jonas Brothers 'Burnin' Up' Video

Never forget Big Rob's fedora.

5. Tom Cruise Scientology Video - The Original Uncut Version

This was arguably the 21st century's first true mindf***. The black turtleneck was -- truly -- iconic.

6. Jeff Dunham "Achmed The Dead Terrorist"

"Knock knock."

"Who's there?"

"Me, I kill you!"

There was nothing PC about this viral Jeff Dunham comedy sketch. No matter the controversy, it would be #fakenews to pretend this was not one of 2008's most quoted videos.

7. Corey Won't Take Off His Glasses

Who knew TFM reached its final form in 2008. 

"I'll say sorry, but I'm not taking off my glasses."

"Why not?"

"Because, they're famous."

8. Frozen Grand Central

This was the OG Mannequin Challenge, and what set the internet's Flash Mob fad into motion. Over 200 people iconically froze in place for exactly five minutes in New York's Grand Central Terminal in 2008, garnering a total of 34.6M views on YouTube.

9. Miley Cyrus '7 Things' Music Video

We. Are. So. Old.

10. The Lonely Island's Glory Days

Remember when this was the most popular video on the internet? Remember when Andy Samberg RULED THE WORLD? Yeah, that was 2008. 10. Years. Ago.
