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 a Walking Dead meets David After the Dentist prank to the saddest day in the life of the saddest man, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. Post-Dental Surgery Zombie Prank

Open your web browser, blindly click three times, and chances are, an unfunny prank video will begin to play. Rarely are these online stunts planned, executed, and reacted to in an amusing manner — let alone be laugh-out-loud funny — with all the players (and the viewer) coming out of it satisfyingly unscathed. This is one of those rarities. After her wisdom teeth are removed, two brothers prank their little sister into thinking the zombie uprising has commenced. But it’s her surprisingly calm and lucid handling of the scenario that might be the standout in a video filled with hilarious moments.

2. Suicide Squad Are Best Friends

We’re still a few months away from the August release of Suicide Squad, but the trailers give us hope that DC’s latest movie won’t be the colossal trainwreck that was Batman V Superman. And if nothing else, it gave us this delightful video which shows just how well the band of merry supervillains mash-up with the very ’90s Friends theme song. We assume Joker and Harley Quinn are the Ross and Rachel of the group.

3. Sad Man, Sad Day

Recently, IFC’s Comedy Crib players Video Frogs released one of the darkest depictions of male single life ever committed to film. Chronicling a day in the life of a sad man, the video takes us through the multiple naps, meager meals, and the constant self-gratification in lieu of self-improvement that plague this doomed individual. (At least the teenager home invasion gets him out of the apartment a little.)

4. Adult Swim – The History of a Television Empire

Nearly 15 years ago, Adult Swim debuted, ushering in a flood of surreal, dadaist humor that pushed the boundaries of animation for the sake of something uniquely original and unexpected. And since then, you can readily see the influence its style has given to modern comedy where tropes and restrictions are obliterated and reshaped into something never seen before. (Without Space Ghost Coast to Coast, we may never have had the surreal talk show host stylings of Scott Aukerman on Comedy Bang! Bang!.) For a brief overview of this surprisingly prognostic network empire, check out YouTuber KaptainKristian’s fantastic and funny video retrospective.

5. How to Make a Real Sharknado

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to ask the important questions: could a Sharknado really happen? The latest episode of YouTube’s Film Theory looks into the “raining animals” phenomenon which is a real thing that sounds terrifying. You probably want to catch the Jaws movies this month on IFC and prepare for the coming shark-pocalypse.


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
