After a week rich in musical and visual events, this year’s edition of Impakt appropriately culminated in a fired up YouTube Battle. Filmmakers and members of the audience alike engaged in a tight-paced competition, taking their best shots at surprising us with the most hidden gems of the popular video cauldron. Some of the clips shown were vintage 80s TV memorabilia, others meme mash-ups, others videoclips or YouTube-specific series, but they were all quite unique and hilarious. Check out some of the best ones below.
