We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today:
In anticipation of the 10th anniversary of HBO's The Wire (the best named show on television in The Atlantic Wire's opinion), here is a video of the 100 greatest quotes from the beloved HBO series. And hey, only some of them are the titles of episodes! (Spoilers abound.) [The Atlantic]
Bruce Springsteen debuted a cover of Wizz Jones' 1973 song "When I Leave Berlin," as he played a concert in ... yep, Berlin. Sounds like a one-time thing, so all you Boss fans should give it a listen. Somewhere, Chris Christie is rocking out. Or resting his eyes. [Rolling Stone]
The New York Times announced they'll be posting videos to Hulu under a new licensing agreement, which is exciting! Much better to watch a news outlet's content on a familiar player rather than navigate their site. The first video posted to Hulu is 'Punched Out: The Life and Death of an N.H.L. Enforcer,' which was paired with a series about deceased hockey player Derek Boogaard. [Nieman Lab]

Yes, it's an adorable, meticulous, overwhelmingly orchestrated lip-sync marriage proposal. It's delightful. [YouTube]
