Favorite Videos of 2015: Day 8: Every Inspirational Video Ever

Goin' strong.
For yesterday's entry, click right on over hurr.
Today's video is "Every Inspirational Video Ever" by Nacho Punch.
I've always enjoyed parodies, though I'm not really sure why. While it can be considered low-hanging fruit and an excuse to avoid making original content, I feel almost the exact opposite in the sense that it requires a complete understanding of what is being mocked and a heckuva lot of effort to make it resemble what is being parodied.
Such is the case for the aptly-named "Every Inspirational Video Ever."
There have been many parodies aimed at the art of inspirational videos, though I feel that this one came the closest to emulating them. It includes everything, from a preachy message to the strange-paced speech with emphasis on every other word. What I like the most is that the video successfully makes itself sound profound when in reality nothing in it really means anything and it becomes a non-sequitored mess, not unlike most motivational videos.
As such, the acute details in making it as accurately baffling yet heartfelt genuinely pay off.
