YouTube has released its 2013 mashup of the most memorable viral videos like Ylvis’s “What Does the Fox Say?” and hit songs remixed by DJ Earworm, such as Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us.”

While the 2012 “Rewind” video was heavy on “Call Me Maybe” parodies and Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” watch this year’s mix for the RV in Breaking Bad, a singing Jimmy Fallon, and Joanna Rohrback leading one of her signature horse-inspired “Prancercise” workouts. About 30 goats were hired to make this video as well, so don’t miss the part when goats screaming like humans let it rip in the middle of Bauer’s Harlem Shake dance craze — a play on the viral video of the animals screaming as Taylor Swift sings “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

“That had to happen during Harlem Shake because [the dance] is so ridiculous and because of its association with everything going crazy,” DJ Earworm (Jordan Roseman), famous for his year-end music mashup, tells TIME. “The whole meme starts out somewhat normal, then all hell breaks loose, and we have goats on the set going crazy.” That’s also an apt description of the way random, silly YouTube videos blow up on the Internet and inspire parodies all year long.
