“Best of” lists are a dime a dozen at this time of year, but only the most discerning cultural critics dare to voyage into “worst of” territory. Conan O’Brien and Team Coco prove themselves up to the task in this roundup of the least viral videos of 2012. No “Gangnam Style” here, moving image fans, but you will find five less than scintillating and refreshingly trendproof gems such as the aptly titled “Reading.” And remember: virality is in the eye of the beholder. Andy Warhol would have taken these over PSY and “KONA 2012″ any day.

Via the totally tasteless site Unibrow we learn of the most recent televised rant from Pierre Bernard, the real-life graphic designer on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. On the segments named Pierre Bernard’s Recliner of Rage, Bernard gets “comfortable and angry” about issues facing the visually-oriented community. He’s ranted in the past about redesigned Snapple caps, an art store discontinuing his favorite markers, lack of proper storage for his Hot Wheels and, in this segment, the fact that there’s no decent anime programming on the East Coast.
All exactly the kinds of things you designers are sitting there fretting about in real life.
