Mad Mended

College Humor take a look at some alternate outcomes for the Mad Men intro.

Advertising lolz!

OK, I’m going to send this round my ad agency right now. The response however can not be determined at this point. You see on the plus side; I have found a short video that is both relavant to the industry and relatively funny but… And here is my almost unforgivable oversight, it is over 24 hours old. I KNOW… I’m sorry!

So, how will it be received? It really is too close to call. To be on the safe side I will caveat my mail with some sort social experiment declaration. Wish me lolz!

Beastie Boys – Play (and win) games with Spike Jonze

To promote their new Album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the Beastie Boys have joined forces with legendary director Spike Jonze, comedy production giants Funny or Die, American singer songwriter Santigold, many many GI Joe style action figures and a Yeti… and produced this almost epic yet rather entertaining video viral.

The aforementioned track seems to feature throughout, although the focus is definitely on the action. It’s 11minutes, but thanks to it’s ever changing action, charmingly hand crafted animation and zombies (yes zombies), it just flies by.

Good work by Jonze and the gang I’d say, and the final cliff hanger… oops, I’ve already said far too much. Enjoy:

Predator the Musical

They’ll lead you to believe this is a fan made video using clips from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1987 classic ‘Predator‘, but I happen to know otherwise.   John McTieran (director) actually based the film on Arnie’s year three university project ‘If it bleeds we can kill it’.  McTieran was so impressed with the production he used the entire cast (and some of the footage) from the early project.

I think Arnie is a man of more talents than we may ever know.

Dorkly

The other day I was overcome by a weird wave of nostalgia.  I decided to purge this sentimentality with a few bouts on YouTube.  I went about finding comedy callings from Street Fighter, Sonic, Mario and Mortal Kombat and thats when one name kept appearing…

It’s an almost vast array of comedic clips based entirely on classic video games (such as those previously mentioned).

 

Obviously I found like nostalgic crack.  Here are some of my favourites:

I like good spoof ads…

Unfortunately for me, I suffer from a relatively common condition called ‘cantgetthatfuckingsongoutmyhead syndrome’, overplayed ads contribute majorly to this condition especially those that are based around a song or jingle.  One ad in particular had been causing me great irritation, but fortunately Newsagent Provocateur found a cure:

This video was used in the sell-out live comedy show Newsagent Provocateur at the Hawth Theatre, Crawley.

McBain: THE MOVIE

The intelligence behind the Simpson’s is what has helped it stand the test of time, as well appeal to every level, of every age of every walk of life. And there is no character within the Simpsons that has more comedic depth and diversity than McBain:

Actually this was never my opinion, until CollegeHumour informed me of the comedy behind the comedy.  Apparently, if you place each mini-sode of McBain back to back in chronological order, it will create its own story line.

Watch THE MOVIE here.

I thought this was a blindingly clever concept, another example as to how deep the comedy crimson of The Simpsons really does run. Good work Groening.

Happy Blue Monday

So today is supposed to b the most depressing day in our calendar.  Due to overly audacious Christmas’s have left us with little in pocket and a lot in the stomach.  So to help cheer you all up here is a list of videos.  Some old, some new, but all very funny!
