Man, 2012 was a great year for videos.

Long or short, highly produced or randomly amateur, political or sexual, musical or viral, these 12 videos spread like wildfire across the World Wide Internets.

What videos stand out as your favorites over the past 12 months? We've chosen a dozen that defined the year. Let's take a look back at 2012 in moving pictures:

12. Gotye, "Somebody That I Used to Know." Overplayed as it is dinky as it is catchy, Gotye's song may be one-hit wonder material, but that one hit was HUGE!

Cool video, too. Often imitated, never duplicated.

Poor Mitt Romney.

First, it comes out that Nicki Minaj is actually not voting for him in November. Now, in the track "To the World" (off the compilation album "Cruel Summer"), Kanye West takes a shot at the Republican nominee for President by hitting him where it counts:

In Romney's tax returns.

“Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax,” West decrees in a line from the single, following that quip with: “Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax.”

Yes, again. We think he has a point he wants to make. Listen for yourself:

This isn't the only time West has been critical of someone running for office or already in the highest office in the land. He said George W. Bush doesn't care about black people during the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

We wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of this whole thing. Oh... right: Whatever her mother tells her to think.

Republican candidates. Will they ever learn?

The band Silversun Pickups wants Mitt Romney to quit using their song "Panic Switch" at events, firing off a cease and desist letter to make sure he does.

According to frontman Brian Aubert, Romney has been using their 2009 single (below) without asking for permission ... not that he would've received it:

"We don't like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we don't like the Romney campaign. We're nice, approachable people."

"We won't bite. Unless you're Mitt Romney!"

Aubert also notes that the candidate's illegal use of the song is ironic, because "he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign."

The letter notes that in 2008, GOP nominee John McCain was sued by Jackson Browne for using his hit song "Running on Empty" without permission.

That was just one of many such examples, so many in fact that the GOP promised to "respect and uphold the rights of artists and to obtain permissions."

Don't hold your breath there. Perhaps Romney and Paul Ryan should rely on a steady diet of Toby Keith, Ted Nugent and Dave Mustaine from now on.

Mitt Romney. Eminem. We never thought those two people would be used in the same THG headline, but one epic music video parody has united them at last.

This amazing mash-up of Mitt Romney quotes and Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" takes dead aim at the presidential candidate's flip-flopping reputation.

President Barack Obama and Mitt's all-but-dispatched GOP rival, Newt Gingrich, also make cameos in "The Real Mitt Romney," which is a must-see ...

Oxford student Hugh Atkin created the video, combining the Republican candidate's soundbites and the hit song from the rapper's 2001 Marshall Mathers LP.

Obama begins the video in much the same way as Em begins his track: "May I have your attention please. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

"Y'all act like you haven't seen a Mormon before... I'm not concerned with the poor," Mitt says in spliced-together clips from various campaign speeches.

As for that catchy chorus, Romney raps, "I'm Mitt Romney and I'm the real Romney ... All the other Mitt Romneys are just masturbating." Obviously.

In other mashup news, check out Obama singing "Sexy and I Know It"!
