14 Bebo Flashboxes You Definitely Had Back In The Day

Along with rounders, flat 7-up and altar serving, Bebo was an integral part of our teen and pre-teen experience growing up in Ireland.

And arguably the most expressive part of having a Bebo page was the fact that you could have your very own flash box – showcasing to the masses exactly what sort of phase you were going through at the time.

How efficient. And here are 16 that stick out in our collective memory...

1. DJ Cammy - Dancing In The Dark

Cammy should have been knighted during the early noughties, for the exceptional contribution to the music of that era.

2. Mikey 'the Pikey'

Under the haunting category 'Pets and Animals' on YouTube, Mikey the Pikey was an absolute moron so the rest of us didn't have to be – and this video of utter idiocy sparked debate on Liveline and the other usual suspects.

And according to the video description, he's available for weddings and 21sts.

3. Potter Puppet Pals – 'The Mysterious Ticking Noise'

You're lying if you say you didn't.

4. The Duck Song

Guilty? Thought so.

5. What's Snots

Francie Boylan, you deserve an Oscar.

6. OMG, Shoes

There are no words.

7. Charlie bit my finger

Serves him right, in fairness.

8. Charlie the unicorn goes to Candy Mountain

Maybe the most irritating video in existence.

9. Spiders on drugs

Before we even knew what drugs were, we were laughing about how gas it'd be if spiders were on them.

10. This rally in West Cork

We're not too sure whether they're racing or out to pick up some milk.

11. This Oxegen mudfight

Where everyone claimed to know someone in the background.

12. Stavros Flatley 

A great time for Irish-Greek relations.

13. Fedde Le Grand – 'Put Your Hands Up For Detroit'

Although, in reality, lyrics were often changed to Put Your Hands Up For [Insert Town Name Here]

e.g. Put Your Hands Up For Sallins, I Love This City

14. The Lonely Island – 'Jizz In My Pants

How mature we all truly were.

Honorary mention

The D4 song, featuring a young girl singing about popping your collar, putting your Abercrombie and Dubes on, and highlighting your Cantos. The video has since been deleted, most likely to save the girl's family name.

Oh, D4 song. We hardly knew ye.
