With spring’s rainy season hopefully behind us and Memorial Day Weekend (and IFC’s Shark Half-A-Day marathon!) in our sights, there’s no time like the present to settle into the warm weather and shake the doldrums with some funny videos on the ol’ Internet.
From Seth Rogen taking on every part on AMC’s Preacher to a peek at Comedy Bang! Bang!’s “weirdest” season yet, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.
1. X-Men ’80s Flashback
The X-Men: Apocalypse media blitz offered up a fun throwback this week in the form of an ’80s-style ad for Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters that perfectly captures the sort of cheesy educational spots we used to see all the time while watching Punky Brewster.
2. Comedy Bang! Bang! Gets Weird
It’s Hawaiian shirts and pop-culture parodies this season on Comedy Bang! Bang!. Host Scott Aukerman welcomes “Weird Al” Yankovic to the anthropomorphic stage as the newest CB!B! bandleader. Join Scott and Al as they goof, gag, and galavant as the two gentlemen are wont to do when Comedy Bang! Bang! returns Friday, June 3rd at 11P.
3. Fred Armisen and Kate McKinnon Hang Out in the Park
We’re super excited for Fred’s return to Studio 8H this weekend as the host of Saturday Night Live‘s season finale. Since he’s never hosted before, cast member Kate McKinnon offers up some pointers in the duo’s promo for Saturday’s episode.
4. Seth Rogen Does Preacher
As one of the brains behind AMC’s Preacher series, Seth Rogen wears many hats. Not content with being behind the scenes, Seth made a video for AMC which showcased his acting skills in the roles of Jesse, Tulip, Cassidy, and well, pretty much everyone else on the show. How does Seth’s performance(s) stack up to the actors on the show? You’ll have to catch the premiere of Preacher this Sunday at 10/9c on AMC to find out.
5. Margot Robbie: Australian Psycho
Before he scrubbed his larynx with a bottle brush to play Batman, actor Christian Bale exemplified the unfeeling greed of the ’80s corporate world in American Psycho. And while the public’s animosity toward the top 1% hasn’t abated in the least, Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie nevertheless felt comfortable stepping into the shoes of Patrick Bateman in this almost-shot-for-shot remake of the unsettling adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel.
