I want to post a funny videos thread.
I absolutely love this Lilly Allen video and song about her brother Alfie; it came to my attention because her brother, Alfie, is an actor who will be appearing in 'Game of Thrones'. What's that, a collective groan? Already tired of hearing about that show, are we? Good.
This 'Daily Show' excerpt details the ongoing story regarding government health care legislation, and posits that the right wing will counter the left by turning to the supernatural.
Plugs for YouTube and Hulu, eh Jack?
Watch their hit counts skyrocket! Here's a funny/cool video with cobbled scenes from the awesome HBO miniseries 'Generation Kill'.
This music video by OK Go is silly fun.
John Simm is a fan favorite for the role of conniving genius Petyr Baelish in 'Game of Thrones'. A fan posted this hilarious clip from 'Dr. Who' in promoting Simm for the role. I do need to start watching this show sometime.
It's very odd to see Lilly Allen with a top on. I'm used to her showing her tits.
Scene from Lord of the Rings with the voices replaced.
Two of my favorite line deliveries:
I think it's awesome that "Garbage Day" is followed by a parenthetical "high quality."
Here's some stuff that makes me laugh:
The part in Eiffel Tower video in which he's gathering the courage to jump made me guffaw.
Ryan Stiles looks like he could be one of the Ritz Brothers:
Edit: The Ritz Brothers video also reminded me that I haven't yet masturbated today.
Also, Arthur's laugh reminds me of Dr. Hibbert's laugh (albeit more pronounced):
I really wanted to post the entire interview, because the hijinks definitely continued, but apparently people are only interested in the initial slip-up.
I enjoy this staged interview with Natalie Portman by Zach Galifianakis.
I like Zach Galifianakis.
I finally got around to finishing Thursty's block of videos. I've watched that Bobby Conn one twice now, and after a second time my mind is less blown, but that still might be the most fucked up shit I've ever seen. It's crazy enough with just the singer, but then you've got the gangly, sorta hot chick stomping around in her Doc Martins, and then out of fucking nowhere comes 'Freaks and Geeks'-era Seth Rogen in a sport coat, doing some kind of Frankenstein lumber. The song's got a good message, though. The 'Mother and Son' skit is also great, though I'm a bit puzzled as to why the son keeps referring to the mother as "honey." The photoshopping of the wedding ring is also comic gold. 'The best fight scene of all time' was, of course, stolen from my Facebook page: bad Thursty! All I have to say to that one is, "HHYYYYAYRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHGHGHGHGHGHGH!!!!"
"The Best Fight Scene of All Time" is actually a video I have been showing off for years. I've forced pretty much everyone I know to watch it at some point. It was even on my iPod for a while. If you've never seen Undefeatable, the movie from which the scene is taken, I highly recommend it. The whole movie is pretty much just as good as amazingly awesome as that clip.
Here's another thing I've forced friends and family to partake in:
If you aren't familiar with the Shaggs, I recommend familiarizing yourself with them.
Doing a little research on Bobby Conn, I see the original lyrics to that song go, "You're never gonna get ahead, no, giving head to the man." Watching the video again after learning that, I thought I detected Mr. Conn slipping up, and using the adult version of the lyrics at about the 3:18 mark, and then saying, "I'm sorry," after the following rendition of the chorus. Funny. And I suppose I shouldn't have been so quick to assume that Thursty was taking his video cues from my Facebook page, but I can't remember how I got to that fighting video at Youtube, but I thought I had found it somewhat randomly, and didn't know if it was something that had been around at all. I actually watched it the first time expecting it to be some awesome fight scene, and was left afterward thinking, "What the fuck was that?"
I can't resist posting what is possibly the greatest SNL sketch of all time (as everyone knows, for something to be the greatest it has to be underappreciated, so cannot be from a list of items that would be considered by a large audience to be the natural choices for being the greatest).

I can't watch Hulu from my country. What is this? (I'm not even getting a description of content.)

"Canteen Boy and the Scout Master" (Alec Baldwin and Adam Sandler)
There's a "Pudge and Solomon" sketch with Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo that I really like, but I can't find it. There's one on the "Best of Eddie Murphy" DVD, but it's not the one I like. The one on the DVD features Lily Tomlin, and the one I'm looking for is Lily Tomlin-less. I'm guessing the one I'm looking for doesn't have "Pudge" or "Solomon" anywhere in the title, since the only sketch I can find with either of the characters' names in the title is the one with Lily Tomlin. The characters played by Murphy and Piscopo in the sketch I can't find are the same characters played by the actors in the Tomlin skit.
I like the non-Tomlin-inclusive sketch (not that I dislike Tomlin; I like her a good bit) because it has charm, and, like a number of Saturday Night Live's sketches from the earlier seasons, isn't explicitly comedic. I'm guessing it's hiding somewhere in the seventh season, which is where one can find the other "Pudge and Solomon" sketch.
I'm beginning to believe the sketch doesn't exist, since I have had absolutely no luck finding it.
I probably shouldn't revisit sketches I liked a lot as a kid, anyway. They're almost never as enjoyable as I remembered them. I remember laughing myself into an asthmatic fit when I saw the Driving Miss Daisy parody featuring Quincy Jones and Toonces, but I've seen a lot of the Toonces sketches since (including all of the ones on the VHS tape, which I own), and the best they seem to draw from me is an occasional chuckle. I also remember laughing pretty hard at the "Jimmy Tango's Fatbusters" sketch featuring Jim Carrey (the laugh comes toward the end), but I don't find it very funny at all, now.
I laughed pretty hard at the "Attack Of The Masturbating Zombies" sketch when I saw it some twenty-one years ago. I had to ask my ex-stepbrother (though he wasn't an ex, yet) what "masturbating" meant. "Jackin' off," he told me. For years, I called the sketch "The Attack of the Jackin' off Zombies." I forgot about "Masturbating" being in the sketch's title until I was in my twenties. I haven't seen that episode since it aired. I'm probably better off.
