As another week ends, it’s important to blow off some steam with some hilarious videos. An entertainment appetizer, if you will, that’ll make the transition from work to play a little easier.
From Mark Hamill pranking Star Wars fans to the latest from IFC’s Comedy Crib, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.
1. Muppets Sing Bone Thugs-n-Harmony
Adding to his already fantastic catalog of singing felt, Adam Schleichkorn (aka Mylo the Cat) has released another Muppet-y mashup featuring Sesame Street characters singing that mid-’90s R&B staple “The Crossroads” by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. (Much love to Schleichkorn’s puppet surrogate for Uncle Charles.)
2. Audio Graffiti Artist
The latest episode of the Comedy Crib series “Video Frogs” introduces us to a Brooklyn artist who works exclusively in annoying street sounds.
3. Mark Hamill Jedi Mind-Tricks Fans
To live a life as a nerd icon constantly hounded by the awkward and unwashed masses must be as torturous as a millennium spent in a Sarlacc Pit. And nobody would know that better than Tatooine native Mark Hamill who, through the power of The Force, is able to disperse a flock of fans toward co-star Harrison Ford. (Watch ’til the end to get a brief glimpse of Hamill’s actual day-to-day autograph annoyances.)
4. SNL March Madness Sketch
Ariana Grande proved to be an able host on last week’s SNL, but there’s one sketch you didn’t see. Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett reprised their awkward coworker characters for this cut for time sketch about two dimwits who don’t seem to grasp the basic idea of casual get togethers.
5. The Walk of Life Project
The chipper, stadium-pumping “Walk of Life” off of Dire Straits’ 1985 smash success Brothers of Arms is more than just a jock jam. Turns out, as showcased in YouTuber Peter Salomone’s eponymous online project, “Walk of Life” is the perfect way to end just about any movie. Check out the Knopfler-sized Jurassic Park above and visit Walk of Life Project for other perfect examples like RoboCop, Casablanca, and The Shining.
6. Leprechauns try Lucky Charms
Funny or Die got in the St. Patrick’s Day mood with this take on those “person tries junk food from their culture” videos that the Buzzfeeds of the world love churning out.
7. Lance gets an eye exam
Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz returned to Portlandia this week as an eye doctor who convinces Lance to buy glasses (Missed Portlandia? Catch up on full episodes any time on IFC.com and the IFC app.)
