If you’ve ever attended an EDM concert, you know that most of the performing is done on laptops, synthesizers, and other instruments with buttons and knobs. Norwegian comedy show Kollektivet pokes fun at the experience when a duo of DJs gets a new piece of equipment and doesn’t know what any of its buttons do.

Ice Guys

Ice Guys

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.

Honest Lilo & Stitch Trailer

Honest Lilo & Stitch Trailer

In the days before Pixar became king, Disney was struggling to keep its animation fresh and relevant. Screen Junkies looks back with equal parts fondness and snark about the 2002 flick Lilo & Stitch, a surprisingly unconventional movie about a little girl and her blue dog that’s actually a gross and violent alien.

Godzilla vs. Kong vs. Wayne

Godzilla vs. Kong vs. Wayne

JKK Films was watching the trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong and thought there just wasn’t enough action. To amp things up, he added a third monster to the battles, his cat Wayne. Given the destructive tendency of kitties, Wayne appears to be the perfect casting decision.

When the Controller Dies from the NPC’s Perspective

When the Controller Dies from the NPC’s Perspective

“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.

Omega Mart: Grand Opening

Omega Mart: Grand Opening

This insane commercial takes us inside the imaginary grocery store “Omega Mart,” where a deepfaked Willie Nelson will try to sell you products. The trippy ad was created by art collective Meow Wolf to help promote their Las Vegas-based combination theme park, art exhibit, VR game, and shop.

Burgerpunk 2077

Burgerpunk 2077

Animator omozoc takes a break from stop-motion cooking to poke fun at Cyberpunk 2077 with a fun little sequence that starts out with player customization, and then takes us on a ride into a world dominated by a mega-corporation who controls all of the food supplies.

The Wrong Equipment

The Wrong Equipment

Comedian Daniel LaBelle shows us what happens when you use the wrong equipment for everyday tasks. From sleeping on a moving treadmill to flipping an egg with a snow shovel, it seems as if Daniel is living in a strange alternative universe in his latest slapstick video.

(I Can’t Get No) Ragtime Satisfaction

(I Can’t Get No) Ragtime Satisfaction

There I Ruined It reimagines another song as the worst version of itself. This time, they converted The Rolling Stones’ classic Satisfaction into a Scott Joplin-esque ragtime ditty that absolutely nobody asked for. Though we actually enjoyed it more than Cat Power’s version.

The Nothing (Trailer)

The Nothing (Trailer)

As comedies go, Seinfeld had its share of dark humor and crazy people. Editor Max Gold took the opportunity to amp up the darkness level to 11, transforming the series into a unsettling horror flick about nothing… and creepy clowns.

Singing Random Internet Drama

Singing Random Internet Drama

Musician Lubalin stumbled onto Internet gold with his hilarious vocalization of two people going at it in a late night chat about a rental property. He’s since done a second, even funnier episode about Helen, a woman who’s really pissed about her casserole recipe being stolen.

A Podcast About Nothing

A Podcast About Nothing

While there are certainly some great podcasts out there, the unfiltered, unedited nature of most of them means that there can be a bit of rambling too. UK songwriter and producer Jonathan Ogden totally nailed what it’s like when a discussion ensues about basically nothing.

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Musician Aaron Gage likes a little sprinkle of heavy metal atop his holiday egg nog. To celebrate the season rock and roll style, he performed the Black Sabbath classic War Pigs, but swapped in the lyrics the Christmas classic Deck the Halls.

Dancing with Myself: Christmas Edition

Dancing with Myself: Christmas Edition

There I Ruined It wishes us a happy holiday season with a Christmas version of Billy Idol’s 1985 hit track Dancing with Myself sprinkled with a cheerful dash of Jingle Bells. It’s perfect in every way, except we would have called it “Dancing with My Elf.”

Every Breath You Tonk

Every Breath You Tonk

There I Ruined It continues to demolish classic tracks by making them much, much worse. This time, the masochistic musician took the perfectly fine Police track Every Breath You Take, and converted into a old-timey honky tonk song. Terrible.

Raising Baby Yoda

Raising Baby Yoda

It might seem like zooming around the galaxy with Baby Yoda is all action and adventure. The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin explains how much work it is to take care of a 50-year-old poop machine in this clip that we’re sure many parents can relate to. A fun and charming fan parody from the guys at The Warp Zone.

Russian Cyberpunk Farm

Russian Cyberpunk Farm

Sergey Vasiliev decided he had enough of the old “in Soviet Russia” trope which represents his country as technologically backward. Incorporating some clever visual effects, his brilliant short film imagines a Russian farm where everything is running on the latest tech. The footage reminds us of the work of Simon Stålenhag.

Goodfellas Sound Guy

Goodfellas Sound Guy

Kevin James‘ nosy audio guy is back, and this time working he’s on the set of Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece Goodfellas. As James attempts to capture a clean recording, he gets into it with Joe Pesci’s hot-under-the-collar Tommy DeVito, and things go off the rails.

Shape of You: Drunken Pub Edition

Shape of You: Drunken Pub Edition

Oy! Oy! I’m in love with the shape of you! There I Ruined It destroys yet another popular song. This time, they took Ed Sheeran’s pop hit Shape of You and imagined what it might sound like sung by a drunk guy during open mic night. We know chicks would still dig Ed even if he sounded like this.

Green Child O’ Mine

Green Child O’ Mine

Novelty band The Merkins celebrate the second season of The Mandalorian with a parody of the Guns N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine, with the lyrics rewritten to be about everyone’s favorite 50-year-old child, Baby Yoda. The lead vocals are spot-on thanks to special guest singer Alvi Robinson of the rock band The L.A. Maybe.

If Michael Bay Directed UP

If Michael Bay Directed UP

By filling all the balloons with explosive hydrogen, then adding extraneous edits, lens flare, and a power ballad, YouTuber Mr.Stratman7 managed to turn the Pixar classic UP into your typically overdone Michael Bay popcorn flick. The only thing it’s missing is some giant robots to knock things over.

Kevin James: Nature Planet

Kevin James: Nature Planet

Kevin James stars as an oversize Ewok fighting his way back from the brink of extinction in “Nature Planet.” While he’s no Sir David Attenborough, you’ve gotta hand it to “Sir” Adam Sandler for his narration work on this spot-on nature show parody.

Mary Tyler Mask Up

Mary Tyler Mask Up

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Even behind a mask, Mary Tyler Moore certainly could have. Actor and comedian P.M. Artin reminds us to keep our faces covered in public with this spot-on parody of the opening credits of MTM’s classic 1970s sitcom.

Oompah’s Paradise

Oompah’s Paradise

This Sh*t Is Bananab

This Sh*t Is Bananab

The 2005 Gwen Stefani track Hollaback Girl repeatedly proclaims that “this sh*t is bananas,” then proceeds to spell it out letter-by-letter. But what if Gwen’s backup singer couldn’t spell? Archie Henderson aka Jazz Emu made us bust a gut laughing with his impression of just that.

Floaty Holograms Are Stupid

Floaty Holograms Are Stupid

Science fiction and futuristic movies love to envision a world where projecting images into the air is commonplace. Danger Farm demonstrates how those floating holographic images may look cool, but they aren’t exactly the most practical or reliable way to look at things.
