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.

Inauguration Alternative

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
