Before appearing on the CW musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and taking home a Golden Globe for Best TV Comedy Actress, Rachel Bloom was making musical comedy videos on YouTube—which she mentions is how she got noticed in her fast-paced, excited acceptance speech:
Here are five of Rachel's biggest hits from her YouTube era, not so long ago.
1. Rachel's first breakout hit, "F*** Me, Ray Bradbury" (2010).
2. Featuring a character who's much crazier than Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rebecca Bunch, "I Steal Pets."
3. Giving a rare insight into the (not very complicated) mind of a 12-year-old boy, "You Can Touch My Boobies."
4. In a much-needed attempt to unseat Adam Sandler's "Eight Crazy Nights," Bloom's "Chanukah Honey" is the Jewish holiday parody song of the 2010s.
5. And finally, in a rare animated video, "Scientifically Accurate Disney Princesses" is as hilarious as it is depressing.
