There are several good contenders, but Archer is definitely up there as one of my favourite modern-day comedies. None of the 4 seasons can really be considered weak, and unlike most animated comedies, it doesn’t rely on the format for its laughs- it could easily be adapted into a live action series, and be just as funny.
With the 5th season heading over in January, a fun clip emerges from the show’s creators, and of course, it revolves around the show’s most enduring phrase: DANGER ZONE. Not only that, but they’ve also managed to grab the actual song the phrase originally referred to, Kenny Loggins’ Danger Zone, and partly parody the video’s Top Gun clips in the way only Archer can.
Worth watching for a few laughs, particularly the ending, and it’ll definitely get interest in the series revved back up ahead of that series premiere. If you’re not familiar with the show, get a damn Netflix account and get familiar.
In a weird coincidence, I went back and watched the Jackass movies in their entirety just prior to this film’s official announcement, and even set the TV series re-runs on a series link record. Nothing like reliving your teenage years.
In October, one of many folks’ favourite Jackass sketches is getting some extended screentime. It always seemed like the prank they put the most effort into, in terms of the prosthetic makeup and general effort involved in playing the character(s), and it’s no surprise that of all the skits to get a full movie, it’s this one. It looks like they’re going to deliver in spades too (as all of the Jackass movies have, in fairness), with the inappropriateness scaled up considerably thanks to the inclusion of a (complicit) 8-year old sidekick.
There’s no doubt this will be great fun to watch, and here’s to hoping some of the old Jackass crew make a couple of cameo appearances, and with Jackass 4 rumoured for release next year too, there’s plenty more shenanigans on the horizon. For now, look out for Bad Grandpa on 25th October.
When a music video features Nick Offerman, and is hosted on Funny or Die, you know it’s going to be pretty fantastic. It helps that the track itself is pretty lively too. This is NOT safe for work/kids/when your parents are in the room etc.
FIDLAR serve up a thoroughly energetic backdrop, combining aggressive vocals, punishing guitars and powerful percussion into a track that’s entirely relentless throughout. There are no breaks-this one just keeps coming at you with its throwback brand of punk that’ll evoke memories for many of punk’s most recent renaissance at the turn of the century. It’s a fun yet angsty listen that will certainly be a good addition to libraries in need of a bit of new school punk to liven up a summer playlist.
The video will keep you coming back for more though, and it’s beautifully simple. Nick Offerman gets fired from his job, and ends up getting drunk in an alleyway and urinating across the city of Los Angeles. That’s pretty much it. There are gratuitous penis shots, cars being cleaned with urine, and plenty more. Worth a watch for its sheer ridiculousness, though be warned- it might make you want to pee (everywhere).
Noisey gave some lucky fans the opportunity of life time – to shoot Tyler, the Creator and his friends with a load of paintballs on a freezing cold day in Essex.
It’s the fans vs. Odd Future. And it’s suitably ridiculous.
Can you think of many better activities to get the OFWGKTA clan involved in? There’s almost too much to pick from. From the ‘stop humping me’ to the general Odd Future chicanery, it’s a bit of fun but let’s be honest, we wanted things to get way more out of hand than this. Still, it’s funny to see these guys doing anything, and at the very least it’ll probably get you up for a game of paintball.
A few years ago, when he was starting to emerge on the scene, myself and a few others found this video to be a fantastic introduction to how funny Kid Cudi can be. To be honest, it’s bloody funny even if you don’t like him.
Since then, Cudi’s genuinely comedic moments (outside of How To Make It In America) have been few and far between. With his new album on the horizon, he headed to Power 106 and took a quick stab over Chris Brown’s terrible new single, delivering some hilarious lyrics in a sleazy delivery that just escalates from relatively normality down to penis references. If only they had let him carry on. “You can suck on the NNYEAAH“.
By now, it’s well established that Gunplay is pretty wild. So, what do you think is going to happen when a firecracker like Gunplay, with the name GUNPLAY, is let loose in a theme park?
From miscellaneous dancing for no reason to running around with a cape on, this guy knows how to have fun and pretty much not care what anyone else thinks. Either that, or he’s massively crazy. Place your bets now.
There’s not much else to say here. Watch and be amused, and feel free to check out his recent mixtape if you’re drawn to his eccentricity. Shouts to Nikul on the find.
We may as well just close down the internet now. Terry Crews has won it.
His work on the Old Spice campaign has been nothing short of superb, revitalising the brand in a way very few expected, giving it much need relativity to younger folk. Now, they’re taking things up another notch by ‘strapping’ Crews to various instruments and making some ridiculous noise, with hilarious results.
Be sure to watch it right until the end, when you can use your keyboard to make and record your very own ‘remix’ using the sights and sounds of the video (plus some bonuses-press the ‘A’ key for my favourite).
Complex, ever a fan of lists, released one for the 30 Best Rappers in their 30s recently, and stepping away from decimating microphones for a minute, the Slaughterhouse quartet vented their opinions on the list in seperate interviews with Complex.
As you’d expect from this bunch, the results are pretty hilarious. Only Budden (24th) and Royce (20th) made the list, and the fallout from each artist is worth a watch. Budden is as sex-driven as ever, whilst Royce’s foolishness knows no bounds, including the ‘realisation’ that he’s the ’3rd best rapper from Detroit’. A very amusing watch, and it’s always good for fans to see this quartet showing their characters-if you’ve not been to one of their live shows, this is definitely a good insight.
Having done these videos with the likes of 50 Cent, Katy Petty and many more, it’s absolutely unbelievable how popular Keenan Cahill has become, and here he ‘collaborates’ with WWE superstar The Miz for a ‘sync-off’, with hilarious results. Despite being an odd looking little man-boy, it’s nice to see someone get a bit of fame for being willing to have a laugh at themselves.
The funniest part for me is the fact he doesn’t seem to actually know the words to the songs he mimes: whilst Miz is being entertaining in his own right with various exaggerated actions, Keenan is pretty much just moving his lips in as many directions as possible. Watch the entire thing, as there are some funny additional happenings throughout the video, involving another WWE guy.
Also, I’m pretty sure I just read that Keenan now has a management team and a clothing line. Yes, I’m being serious.
Not only are these guys back with a new funny, but it also marks the return of the We Like Sportz/Just Two Guyz duo, who are frankly brilliant. This ‘sequel’ is exactly in keeping with the previous two videos: it ramps things up a notch from its predecessor, and has bundles of the ridiculous awkwardness that makes this duo so entertaining.
It’s probably not quite at the level of the classic We Like Sportz, but gives it a pretty good go and as with most of their videos, it’s still good for a few laughs. A notable moment is definitely the popular hip-hop quote at the end (I won’t ruin it), which will definitely draw a smile out of you. Turtleneck and Chain available now!
To anyone out there making a tribute video to commemorate Macho Man Randy Savage, don’t bother. You won’t top this. Probably one of the funniest videos I’ve seen in a while, this video blends together some typically insane sound and videobites from various Macho Man interviews into a worryingly coherent (probably more coherent than any of Macho’s actual interviews!) and hilarious package.
Not only that, but it’s backed by a massive electronic production that only serves to amplify the Macho Madness, with a headphone-rattling bass that makes you feel like a right idiot for actually nodding your head and enjoying it. Quite simply one of the funniest tribute videos ever, and one any Macho Man fan will get a massive laugh out of.
After releasing the video for Jack Sparrow only a week or so back The Lonely Island hit us pretty sharpish with even more hilarious visuals.
I have to say I think this is probably my favourite video the guys have made, not just because it involves the ever glorious Rihanna, well maybe a little bit. In this TLI and Ri are seen to be playing their own version of hip-hops most loved criminal couple Bonnie & Clyde.
Rihanna actually plays her role extremely well, showing us a comedic side to her that we’re not really used to seeing, something TLI seem to have mastered with all the stars they’ve worked with. There’s not much else I can add to this other than if this doesn’t make you laugh, or at the very least raise a smile, you have no soul. Enjoy.
If the fact MICHAEL BOLTON is on the feature hasn’t already got you in stitches, the video most definitely will.
TLI are at their best here, with that ‘serious’, almost deadpan humour that makes some of their videos hilarious to watch being in full force. However, Michael Bolton is the true star with his overblown emotion on the hook and adlibs, poking a little fun at himself and generally being massively hilarious. That’s certainly helped by his vocals/lyrics being entirely unrelated to the verses, a fact that isn’t lost on TLI who respond with some humorous adlibs of their own. Aside from the unnecessarily dramatic sea sequences and the self-parodying club scenes, the video ends on an equally ludicrous note, with Michael Bolton assuming the role of…Tony Montana.
This is a video/song that definitely ranks up there with their best to date, and is a must-watch if you’re after a good laugh!
The sequel to the fantastic D**k In A Box, if I recall correctly this actually premiered on SNL a few months back. However, it’s now hit the internets ‘officially’, and is slated for The Lonely Island’s Turtleneck and Chain album.
Reprising their roles as the corny 80s/early 90s singers, Justin and Andy bring another dose of hilarity, this time dedicated to satisfying the other’s mother. Typically, its lyrically pretty graphic and hence makes for some laugh-out-loud moments, aided by the various shenanigans going on throughout the video.
Not as good as D**k In A Box, but that was never going to be an easy act to follow. Funny in its own right, and worth a watch!
Best of all, it’s done in the style of ‘murder music’ as Jorma eloquently puts it, which results in an aggressive series of deliveries that enhance the hilarity of the lyrics. It’s almost worrying how listenable their parody music is, and this is another winner from the ever-entertaining trio.
I don’t even know where I found this. Seriously, it was just sitting in my iTunes backlog, and came on in a shuffle. However, I’m very glad I did as it’s unbelievably ridiculous, and an audacious use of Stump’s awesome vocals.
It’s taken from an Adult Swim skit, and is essentially an X-rated parody of Avatar. If you’re of age (probably 15+?), give the video a watch as it makes hilarious use of action figures and animation. The song (as the title/first paragraph suggest) is delivered by Patrick Stump, who takes a break from his more ‘serious’ work to drop off a very funny, lewd and generally stupid (in a good way!) effort.
If you’re a bit weird like me, you’ll want the audio. Grab it here.
A little bit of light hearted entertainment for you on this mellow Sunday afternoon. After their last single I Just Had Sex ft. Akon, The Lonely Island continue to get major names from the hip-hop world to collab with them as Nicki Minaj joins them on their latest effort. (It’s nice to see someone else attempt my dance moves, my mother would be so proud….)
Anyone that follows 50 on Twitter will know that he pulls no punches and pretty much says whatever he’s thinking, no matter who it may offend or annoy. Put that together with an elderly lady and you’ve got some seriously funny stuff. This needs to be longer though!
They’re back! The Lonely Island return with a hilarious effort, and keep the same formula as another worryingly good production is accompanied by laugh-out-loud lyrics. Akon seems to be having a great time and does exactly what T-Pain did on I’m On A Boat, poking a little fun at himself and the pop industry, and his famed vocals and background adlibs are put to good use (specifically ‘manuuuree!‘).
The video maybe isn’t as ‘immediately’ funny as their previous two ‘big’ tracks, but you’ll find more and more with each watch: parodying Katy Perry’s chest fireworks from the Firework video at the end is up there as a highlight! It’s got a few good cameos too, notably Jessica Alba (who looks awesome as usual), and John McEnroe. Welcome back guys!
Brilliant! Be warned, the lyrics aren’t safe for work/school etc!
This is pretty much classic Mark Hoppus/Blink-182 shenanigans, with an ‘alternative’ Christmas song (labelled a ‘timeless classic’, haha!) from Mark and fellow singer-songwriter Ben Folds. If you’re sick of the typical Christmas fare, you’ll love this!
We all know by now that Sha Stimuli isn’t your average emcee. For the past few weeks I’ve been keenly following his Monday Rambles over on his blog. I’ve already complimented Sha on his work (and he, of course, responded) as it’s thoroughly refreshing to be able to engage in such a way with an artist whose music you enjoy. It offers so much more than just a 140-character ‘bite’ on how your emcee is feeling today, or where they are going for dinner tonight. Oh, and Sha ties it all together with his evident sense of quirky humour.
I found the blog after Sha tweeted about an article he wrote on why Biggie was the best. I’ve been hooked ever since. This week’s ramble is about holding babies, wearing stopped watches and FREE (insert name) Tees…
This is brilliant. Cringeworthy, hilarious, and just brilliant. Unsurprisingly, Will Ferrell is on top form here with some typically-questionable vocals (does he ever NOT sing in a film!?) and ridiculous adlibs.
Manny Pacquiao looks like such a soft guy doesn’t he?
They’re back! A short video announces that very fact, and does so in a typically humourous fashion. Keep your ears open at the end of the video, as you’ll catch a snippet of what I assume is to be their next release-can’t wait!
Affion Crockett is just all kinds of brilliant. His range of impressions seems to get better by the day, and here he takes on all of the artists featured on Chris Brown’s Deuces remix to hilarious effect.
The T.I. impression is the highlight for me, but I’m sure you’ll have your own favourites!
This is ridiculous and awesome. Fallon and JT (backed by The Roots) go through a medley of hip-hop classics (and a couple of non-classics…) superbly. JT’s always been a hip-hop fan, but even Fallon’s good with the classics and it’s really fun viewing. Brilliant stuff!
This advert made me do a few lolz “You been doing a whole lot of working out Dr. Dre, bout time you did a little working out on that album”. You aren’t wrong Affion Crockett, Dre is HENCH and fair play to him for getting in shape, but we need music Dre, we need music.
In related news, Dre has come out and said that he’s working on Detox every single day, and he hopes to put something out there musically by December time….also, (useless fact for you here) I watched and listened to this advert using my Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. True Story.
I brought you the behind-the-scenes cut of this video a little while back, and I’ve since been itching for this video to be released.
Really good one too, and will give you a huge injection of that summer vibe whilst throwing many laughs your way. The Jackass boys are in great form, and I’m not sure if the stunts in this are for the upcoming movie or just for the video, but they’re hilarious either way!
One of those songs that you’ll forever associate with this video, largely down to the feel-good nature of the whole thing.
