Some of my favourites for whatever reason.

Tribute to videos that reference drug consumption - real, imagined, or allegorical.

Lightning rod videos - those that have generated some of the biggest debates and most heat at the Sift, either in the form of downvotes or comments.
I find this to be an interesting place to showcase videos that reveal something about the "group psyche" of VideoSift: examples of videos which may or may not be particularly welcome here, or which generate some sort of strong response.
To keep things interesting, there's also some examples of videos that may not be particularly outrageous, but which incidentally drew drawn-out arguments and debates over topics both serious and silly.

A playlist for videos that are not only NSFW, but almost artistic in their ability to take profanities and violence and make them something to look forward. The very best of Samuel L Jackson, super-colourful descriptions of absolute stark horror and the like.
Swearing/violence/nudity just because it's there doesn't qualify for this list - videos where you're almost tempted to all it art show up here.
Definitely not for kids!

A home for light flaky twinkie pop music on the Sift

In the days of "Collectives" this was a place for videos we would have loved to have included in the MG&FAS Collective, particularly if the user had been already a member or perhaps because the video was just too perfect for another collective too, so we have to share through playlists.
Now that it's the Woohoo channel, it's a historical record of early vids that got sifted up and survived the various online purges, and also a place for videos that have five channels other than Woohoo

Videos which include music in one way or another which I also enjoy or plan to enjoy watching later.

A special place to list videos that are a vote away from being promoted. Play Sift Programming Director if you like them, because you'll be sending them up to the Front Page immediately unless someone sneaks in a downvote.
We reserve the right to include worthy 7 to 8 vote vids when running short on 9's.
[description edited on July 29, 2009 in line with queue release upgrade from 10 votes to 15! ... then back down to 9 when the queue limit was rescinded down]

Here's a sift playlist for all 100-gold star sifters who want a pool of worthy videos that they would like to see promoted to classic status sooner or later.
It was inspired by my UnpublishedVideosToSave* list, not surprisingly.
Suggestions are VERY welcome and very much encouraged - all reasonable suggestions will be added to the playlist; videos stay here until promoted. :)
Playlist names changed since the 3.1 upgrade.

Sometimes it's fascinating to see the worst we can find. In a "look at the horrible car crash" kind of way.
This list is going to be devoted, at least in spirit if not as a strict rule, to videos that've already been submitted once, died a horrible death - preferably by downvotes - and face a repeated beating.
There should be some sick amusement from the idiocy exhibited in the subject matter, of course.
Consider it an Absolutely Awful Cousin of my Controversies list.

Videos that were close to escaping the queue (I'll generally restrict membership in this list to five votes or more - anything less and you might as well just re-post the video yourself if you think it got unjustly ignored).
*The* place to go if there's a *-promote burning a hole in your SiftPocket.
[This list was "VideosToSave in Videosift 3.0 and earlier]

A playlist to feature any video including Canadians, Canadian topics, or anything relating to Canada.
