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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
