While shining a new customer’s shoes, a young man discovers the person sitting on his shoe shine bench might be the suspect in a horrible crime. But will his discovery lead to his own peril, or will he eliminate the evidence before he’s found out? Kevin Haefelin’s award-winning short comedy is good for a quick laugh.
THE BEST Funny Stuff
Comedian Henry Phillips pokes fun at cheesy TV dramas of the 1980s with his proposed web series “Highway Man,” a show about a lonely drifter who pops in on people in their moments of need, and basically has nothing useful to offer at all. The future episode synopses on his Patreon page sound thrilling!
Sushi Ramen Rick is a tough guy, like it really rough guy. At least that’s what we got out of his goofy cover version of Billie Eilish’s hit that he made primarily using sounds produced by smacking himself about, and a weird musical instrument that looks like something from a Blue Man Group x Dr. Seuss collaboration.
Freelance motion designer James Tupper presents a cheeky animated glimpse into a small piece of the world of a freelance motion designer, as he creates and programs digital imagery, waits for it to render, waits for his social media views to tally up, then does it all over again.
(PG-13: Gore, Language) “I call ye forth… the devil… with my name… Greg!” Jason Tostevin’s completely sacrilegious horror-comedy short film introduces us to a group of satanists who basically have no clue of what they’re doing, as they try to call forth the devil’s spawn from a pregnant woman.
BeamNG.drive is known for its ability to simulate vehicle dynamics and crashes with impressive accuracy. In addition to weather conditions, it can also replicate gravitational forces. In this clip from The Action Lab, he shows off what might happen if you tried to drive a pickup truck on the Moon, Jupiter, and even the Sun.
“Although the face of the giraffe can resemble a horse that’s been vacuum-sealed, it is not a horse.” ZeFrank spends a little time educating us on these goofy-looking mammals. With their stubby head bumps, prehensile tongues, and ridiculously long necks, and gangly legs, they’re a true evolutionary oddity.
There are many things you can do while staying at home, but we didn’t think parkour was one of them. Freestyle ski champ Andri Ragettli proves us wrong as he performs a variety of balance and training exercises on his “floor is lava” indoor parkour course. Did he just use his laptop as a step?
We’re fortunate to be able to work from home, but not all trades can get their jobs done remotely. Illustrator Robertas Nevecka uses animation to offer up some clever ideas of what members of a film crew might do with their talents while isolating at home. Music and sound by Simonas Jončys.
This off-the-wall animation from Devin Flynn and Jon Vermilyea follows the travels of three ice cubes and their passengers, as they descend into the stomach of a bar patron and compete for a frozen gem that grants them special powers. If that sounds weird, that’s because it is. Thanks for the trip, Adult Swim.
Like most of us, Conan O’Brien and his team are doing their part to prevent the spread of coronavirus and staying at home. With that in mind, his talk show has switched to an even lower-budget approach than usual, using webcams to conduct his interviews. Here’s a clip from his first ever work from home episode.
We’ve seen the original Star Wars movies so many times, we could tell you every minor plot point from memory. But what if you only saw it one time? Liam’s Newly Rebranded Entertainment Franchise asked his girlfriend to recount the story of Episode IV, which she didn’t see until 2017.
If there’s one thing we’ve all learned in recent times, it’s that we must wash our hands. We’ve already seen how dirty they can get, and this amusing animated PSA from Toronto creative studio Chop Haus shows us some even filthier mitts that need to clean up their acts before touching anything.
(PG-13: Gore) Rick and Morty star in this bloodsoaked anime about a group of angry Ninja Ricks who think Rick WTM-72 has kidnapped Shogun Morty, and will do anything to stop him. Directed and written by Kaichi Sato, and produced by Studio DEEN. In Japanese, with English subtitles.
(PG-13: Language) If you happen to have a fancy VR rig for your PC, you can tune out the rest of the world with Valve’s latest stress-inducing Half-Life game. But if you’re videogamedunkey, you don’t just play the game, you live the game. And yes, you can wear a headcrab as a hat now.
Video editor Cut to Black provides a bit of lighthearted relief from the stress and worry of the coronavirus epidemic with a pop culture supercut that recaps the news, then reminds us that we will prevail if we all follow the scientists’ advice and stay home as long as it takes.
Nope, that’s not a typo. This silly desktop organizer from Fred looks like a tiny U.F.O., complete with a tractor beam. A magnet in the bottom of the saucer makes it look like the aliens are abducting the appropriately cow-shaped paper clips. We bet the fluorescent acrylic would look sweet under black light.
From the twisted mind of Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, comes an animated sitcom about a family of aliens and their misadventures as they try to live among humans on Earth. It’s like 3rd Rock from the Sun, only the extraterrestrials don’t look like us. Coming to Hulu 5/8/2020.
While we enjoyed The Rise of Skywalker for the most part, it did try and cram in way too many stories, and had its share of sloppy and too-convenient plot points. Of course Screen Junkies has a lot more beefs about Star Wars Episode IX in their brutally Honest Trailer.
Like many of us, entertainer Brian David Gilbert is stuck at home for a while. But rather than sit there and whine about it, he’s making the most of it and using the time to perfect his dart-throwing (and song writing) skills. Our dart-throwing technique of choice? Spray-and-pray.
Because he was hungry, Sprice Machines built a ridiculously complicated chain-reaction machine that’s designed solely for dunking a cookie in milk. It doesn’t even do a good job doing that, but it’s entertaining to watch it get there. Stick around for lots of trial and error footage.
The #1 requirement for getting into the Olympics is that you’re an exceptional athlete. Half as Interesting explains how in 2018, a woman managed to hustle her way into an event at the Pyeongchang games with not much more ability than a bunny hill skier. You can watch Elizabeth Swaney’s amazingly mediocre ski half-pipe run here.
