When AdWeek put together its top five moments in web videos, we expected to see a slightly different list than what ended up on the web, filled with humorous viral videos and short recaps of online memes that we’ve seen about a million times.

From Hulu making its first billion dollars to passed over pilots turning into a genuinely funny web series, the list puts the future of video, both free and subscription-based, in perspective for the future of television, in which the viewer really is in control. Because when the CEO of Time Warner states that he sees more value in piracy than Emmys, people tend to listen.
