Imagine if you will, that the 2002 Star Wars prequel Attack of the Clones was actually a buddy movie about a pair of P.I.s who use their Jedi powers to investigate crimes in the seedy underbelly of Coruscant. That’s what you’ve got here, courtesy of trailer editor Imperator Cuts in a playful nod to Shane Black’s The Nice Guys.
THE BEST Funny Stuff
(Gore) The guys from Cardboard Movie Co. love to do low-budget remakes of popular movies. We’re particularly impressed with their redo of Ridley Scott’s science fiction horror classic, Alien, which somehow manages to balance on the thin line between quality filmmaking and ridiculously low budget effects.
A couple finds themselves having difficulty connecting while quarantined apart, as they struggle to figure out if it’s their relationship that’s falling apart, or just their internet connection. Dogfood’s sketch offers a humorous look at one of the many challenges of dating in today’s world.
Typewriters have gone the way of the dinosaur, rarely used by anyone but the most hipster of writers these days. But the Boston Typewriter Orchestra continues to get use out of these mechanical office relics, even when forced to work from home due to their in-person concerts being canceled.
Animator Junyi Xiao’s short film The Last Man on Earth Sat Alone in a Room has quite the warped sense of humor. It tells the story of a lonely man who spends his days sitting in front of his computer, and who makes quick work off an alien who comes seeking friendship at his door. But as they often say “karma’s a bitch.”
If you like to sip your whiskey neat, or maybe with a single ice cube, you want it to be quality stuff. Meriwether’s simply embellished 11 oz. rocks glass serves as a reminder and a pronouncement that you only drink classy spirits, and would never reach for the bottom shelf.
“Thou art like an angel. Thy skin makes me cry.” Hildegard von Blingin‘ is back with another medieval cover of a modern song, this time changing up Radiohead’s 1992 classic Creep with a proper old English vibe. Though it’s too bad the “F” word wasn’t in common usage until the 16th century or so.
With fewer new movies being released in 2020, Screen Junkies is digging into the archives for classics that they’ve yet to skewer. Sit back and enjoy their take on Luc Besson’s cult sci-fi flick which gave us memes like “Leeloo Dallas MultiPass,” Ruby Rhod’s “Bzzzzzzzzz!,” and the greatest opera solo of all time.
We’ve all found ourselves glued to the couch and unable to get up without major effort. Comedian Kevin James imagines the process of emerging from couch potato mode as a major achievement on par with sending astronauts into space. 3… 2… 1… lift-off (the tab from your beer can.)
Pals Jasper and Flip stop by a junkyard in search of treasure, and along the way they make a new friend, sorta. Daniel Broderick and Jared Wangenstein’s AOK quirky cartoon short feels like a great pilot for an animated series in the vein of Regular Show or Adventure Time. The fridge could even be BMO’s cousin.
Russian car modding channel Garage 54 has done some pretty wacky things over the years. This time, they took an old beater and covered the entire car with 300 high-output LED headlight bulbs. There’s no missing this thing on a dark road, though it might blind its operator and every other driver on the road.
The guys from the Hydraulic Press Channel and Beyond the Press Channel keep their promise for bigger and more impressive videos by attempting to launch a crappy car into the sky using more than 150 pounds of dynamite. At the same time, they kicked off the first mission of the unofficial Finnish space program.
Remember that John Hughes movie where Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith engineered their own unrealistic fantasy woman? Well what if her name wasn’t Lisa, but instead was Black Betty? Imagine no longer. Thanks to mashup artist DJ Cummerbund, we have our answer. Bam-ba-Lam, mama-sa, mama-koosa!
(PG-13: Language) Chicago fast food staple The Wiener’s Circle offers peace of mind that despite all of the change going on in the world, we can rely on them for their trademark abusive approach to customer service, no matter what, and even if you order via Facetime or do curbside pickup.
Ordering a new car off of wholesaling site Alibaba.com seems like a sketchy idea, and that’s exactly why Jalopnik did it. In this series of clips, editor Jason Torchinsky unboxes it, takes us for a test drive, and explains the engineering of Chang Li’s tiny electric four-seater, which sells for about $930 ($1200 with the batteries).
Since the sad demise of ThinkGeek, Icon Heroes‘ Picard facepalm bust has been off the market. Just in time for the madness of 2020, the 8″ tall sculpture is back, now with a painted Starfleet logo on its base. You can pre-order one from Entertainment Earth, with deliveries expected by 8.2020. Limited to just 1701 pieces.
“Best ye go, faster than mine arrow…” Hildegard von Blingin’ imagines what pop songs might have sounded like in medieval times. Working with music by Cornelius Link, she revamps the tracks with period-appropriate lyrics and vocals. Here’s her olde tyme take on Foster the People’s 2010 hit, Pumped Up Kicks.
YouTuber OwlKitty likes to imagine the world with more cats. In this clip, they envision a reboot of NBC’s comedy classic The Office, but with 100% more kitties working at Dunder-Mifflin. We bet that cat would use all of the paper in the warehouse as a scratching post.
Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and its spin-off The Brak Show were two of our faves from the early days of Adult Swim. Saad Rahman (aka “Sad Ramen“) and April Son are fans too, and they created this eccentric follow up to the series in which the crew gets separated by space and time, leading to a web of intrigue and mystery.
You could bring your car to a professional tuning shop to give its engine more power, or you could upgrade it with a Dilithium warp drive, an FTL jump unit, or a 1.21 gigawatt Flux Capacitor. DarkStarLab has you covered with their series of stick-on chrome plastic car badges inspired by classic sci-fi propulsion systems.
“Limit yourself to one sourdough bread recipe a day, and absolutely no YouTube videos.” After taking the first three months of quarantine creating exactly zero videos, Casually Explained is back to offer his guidance on how to be productive while telecommuting, and then gradually reacclimating to the outside world.
“Now go out there, and be nobody!” Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s brash and insensitive neighbor Carl Brutananadilewski was invited by Adult Swim to give a commencement speech to the graduates of the Class of 2020. As expected, absolutely zero of his monologue is inspiring, sensible, or politically correct.
The yellow machine you’re looking at is “Le Mécanophone,” otherwise known as a 1935 Citroën truck, equipped with 42 different car horns. But this thing doesn’t just beep, it’s basically a calliope on wheels. We want one of these just so we can honk at traffic all day long.
(Flashing images) The whole “Shrek, but…” meme has produced some rather silly videos, including GrayWalf’s edit, in which he managed to compress the entire film to just over 3 minutes by only including the parts where they made the sound “E.” It’s a nice quick way to get through the movie, and still get the main plot points.
