Hi, I’m Dylan Behan, I’m a long-time comedy video editor for Australian TV who’s labored on a variety of already forgotten reveals like The Chaser’s Warfare on All the things, The Letdown and Tonightly with Tom Ballard. When Tonightly was axed on the finish of 2018 I made a decision to enter the extremely profitable world of podcasting, beginning my wacky clips podcast Information Fighters, which is now out weekly by way of Melbourne distributor Sanspants Radio.
As a connoisseur of “wacky clips”, I believed I’d share a few of my all-time favorite web LOLs going again to uni when all I did was waste time on the web all day, which is totally totally different to how I spend my time now.
1. Hyakugojyuuichi!!! by Neil Cicierega
Homeschooled absurdist web genius Neil Cicierega might be finest identified for his Harry Potter Puppet Friends movies and his Smash Mouth-obsessed, Lady Speak-esque mash-up albums. He was first on my radar within the early 2000s when he launched his “Animutations”, principally infantile and absurdist pop-culture sampling Flash animations set to Japanese children’ songs. Your life won’t ever be the identical.
2. This trailer for (the) Shining
As a video editor I’m all the time impressed through the use of enhancing tips to utterly reimagine tales, because it reveals off how manipulative enhancing will be. This is among the very first film trailer recuts that went viral within the early days of YouTube round 2006, by which the Stephen King horror film The Shining is reimagined as a romantic comedy. One of many originals and nonetheless one of the best! Mash-ups and re-edits have gotten more and more scarce on the web, which actually sucks as they need to be handled as new, unique artworks.
three. Eric Andre on the RNC: Peppercorn Bing Bong
Speak present host Eric Andre met later-prosecuted Trump advisor Roger Stone on the 2016 Republican Nationwide Conference and it went precisely as you’d assume. Eric’s frenetic enhancing fashion, by which he principally crushes a 60 minute discuss present right down to 10 minutes of madness is among the most impressed TV comedy enhancing since Tim and Eric Superior Present, Nice Job!
four. Batman on Weed
I don’t know what that is, who made it or the place it got here from, however I discovered it so hilarious I made it my ringtone for years.
Onion spin-off Clickhole liked taking the piss out of Buzzfeed-style quizzes in its early days, and none have been funnier than this quiz, supplied you’re at the very least vaguely acquainted with the Billy Joel tune Piano Man. Ask your dad and mom!
6. The music video of Dancing within the Streets by David Bowie and Mick Jagger – with none music
One other enjoyable and easy enhancing trick – substitute all of the music in a music video with foley noises and it turns into one thing utterly totally different and insane!
7. Too Many Cooks
I’m nonetheless amazed after I meet individuals who haven’t seen this traditional web reinterpretation of 1980s sitcom opening titles that may actually offer you nightmares.
I’m an enormous fan of political satire that merely recites unbelievable but true details whereas by some means additionally being scarily prescient. This was revealed only a few days earlier than George W Bush’s inauguration in 2001. Ask your dad and mom!
9. Straight Delight Parade by Eva Victor
Brooklyn-based comic Eva Victor tells us why we needs to be celebrating straight pleasure.
10. Senor Cardgage Mortgage
Homestar Runner, the surreal flash-based cartoon sequence and web site of the early noughties, is a deep, deep rabbit gap of G-rated absurdity that may be loved by children of all ages. My favorite character stays Senor Cardgage, a weird grifter whose existence is rarely defined and turns up randomly to mumble mispronunciations.
