(PG-13: Language) We’ve all been there. You’ve got a Netflix and Chill night on the books, but you can’t decide what to watch for the Netflix part. Joel Haver’s comedy sketch perfectly captures the most awkward part of couch-based dating and is packed with hilarious fake movie graphics.
Awesome Joel Haver
(PG-13: Language) A couple of days ago, in a galaxy not very far away, an enthusiastic young man and his apathetic uncle went shopping for droids on a hot and boring desert planet. Joel Haver is joined by guest Justin Roiland to bring back this deleted scene from Star Wars: A New Hope.
It’s a common trope in video games and action movies – the protagonist drops in on the big bad guy in their lair and tells them their days of perpetrating misdeeds are over. But in Joel Haver’s amusing take on this cliché, it turns out not all is what it seems between the crime lord and his companion.
Joel Haver makes fun of what it’s like to pick up and start playing a role-playing video game that you haven’t played in a while. His observations on the mundane side quests and the NPCs are especially on-the-nose. Along the way, he worked in a few references to his previous game parody videos.
Have you ever watched a movie and an alien starts talking in their native tongue, but no subtitles come on screen? Are they saying something critical to the story? Is Closed Captioning turned off? Joel Haver and Brandon Dester sum up the feeling of confusion that comes with scenes like that in this animated comedy sketch.
“You need to be a little more drained of life… like you’re crushed by the monotony of existence.” Joel Haver’s latest clip hilariously imagines what it might be like if fantasy characters or aliens made movies about people living ordinary lives here on Earth.
“Monkey. It’s your final banana for tonight.” Joel Haver parodies the sheer stupidity of The Bachelor and its spin-offs with a look at what the show would be like if the humans were replaced with monkeys. Of course, the Bachelor monkey still must pick its mate from 30 emotionally-unstable monkeys selected by the producers.
With shows like Mountain Men and Swamp People on their schedule, the History Channel rarely seems to be about history anymore. Comedians Joel Haver and Trent Lenkarski totally nailed what it’s like to tune into the channel these days, with reality shows about manly men doing manly things in manly places.
“That was the guy this was all about. Not like there’s another guy.” Joel Haver’s hilarious video game parody series pokes fun at what NPCs are probably thinking when your controller disconnects. Suddenly, you go from a rampaging death machine to an easy target for a one-punch kill, so the AI must be seriously confused.
“Your biggest enemies during this will be blinking and closing the mouth for syllables.” Joel Haver gets all meta with a video about how he makes his stupid funny videos about video games. He animated himself animating himself, and actually ended up with a halfway decent tutorial on his AI-assisted rotoscoping process.
