The whole idea of sitcom laugh tracks make us cringe. Do we really need to be told when something is funny? Regardless, hit TV shows continue to do it. Owen Cooper decided to see if it would be any better if he swapped the “live studio audience” with Ricky Gervais’ laugh.
(Gore) Filmmaker and editor Antonio Maria Da Silva pays tribute to two masterpieces of cinema – Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, and Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West. The result is a crazy tense scene that had us on the edge of our seats the entire time.
Fabrice Mathieu mashed up the opening sequence from Raiders of the Lost Ark with footage from Star Wars universe, making the daring archaeologist take on evil Jar-Jars, and all manner of nasties to recover the C-3PO idol. The trash compactor creature was a nice touch.
(PG-13: Language) Zveki put together this fantastic mashup of music from Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, and The Weeknd. The track blends together Starboy, In the Air Tonight, and They Don’t Care About Us, resulting in They Don’t Care About the Starboy in the Air.

YouTube channel Sync Fu was designed with a single purpose – to combine kung fu and action scenes with wildly out of place music. We’re not sure why it works, but it often does. Ouf favorite is Casshern vs. Mr. Roboto, but Lone Wolf and Cub vs. In The Air Tonight is perfect too.
(PG-13: Language) What happens when a strange and unidentified alien lifeform lands on our planet? You send in the big guns to figure out what they’re saying. Ochre Jelly turns in a hilarious mashup of the sci-fi flick Arrival with one of the silliest memes of the past year.
Alessandro Grespan posted this video back in 2011, which he created by perfectly timing the playback of LCD Soundsystem’s New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down, along with Miles Davis’ improv performance from Louis Malle’s 1958 film Elevator to the Gallows.
YouTuber Sleepy Skunk presents their much-awaited movie trailer mashup. Trailers are getting better and better at making a movie seem leagues better than it really is, but this video reminds us that 2016 did have its share of great films, especially animated ones.
