Who ya gonna call? If you’re looking for a hearty helping of the funniest videos the Internet has to offer this week, then he answer is us.

From Obama’s smooth jam to the return of Fourvel on tonight’s brand new Comedy Bang! Bang!, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. Obama Slow Jams the News

On the heels of his endorsement of Hillary Clinon for the Democratic presidential candidate, Obama achieved a first for a sitting Commander-in-Chief: he recapped his eight years in office with a smooth, soulful jam.


2. Alien in Under 3 Minutes

The story of the snarling, elusive xenomorph spans seven feature films and several video games and novels over nearly four decades. But with simple Terry Gilliam-inspired animation and a comprehensive knowledge of the mythos, Mashable’s “TL;DW” series tackles the entire Alien franchise in under three face-hugging minutes. (Click here to find out when Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are airing this month on IFC.)


3. Ghostbusters Casts Unite

We’re fast approaching the release of the new Ghostbusters movie, which means new paranormal investigators Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones are starting to hit the talk show rounds. Jimmy Kimmel kicked things off by uniting the new ‘Busters with OGBs Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts. The two generations of proton pack-slingers discussed everything from fan tattoos to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, while Murray summed up his reasons for finally agreeing to do another Ghostbusters movie: “It was only cause I knew these girls were funny.” And of course, everyone danced to Ray Parker Jr.’s performance of the classic theme song. (For more Kristen Wiig, pick up The Spoils Before Dying on DVD now.)


4. Beavis and Butt-Head Perform “Da Rockwilder”

Along with Mystery Science Theater 3000, metalhead critics Beavis and Butt-Head offered snarky real-time commentary long before live tweeting was a thing. And although it probably wouldn’t jibe with their musical genre sensibilities, mashup extraordinaire Mylo the Cat combined the animated duo and the Method Man and Redman collaboration single “Da Rockwilder.” As always, Mylo matches words to action with a deft eye and thumping beat.


5. Fourvel returns to Comedy Bang! Bang!

Everyone’s favorite stabby orphan is back to his old tricks tonight on Comedy Bang! Bang!. The mischievous little guy (played by Bobby Moynihan) stops by Scott’s couch to offer his tips for “How to Make it in Hollyweird.” You’ll have to tune in to back-to-back Comedy Bang! Bang! episodes tonight starting at 11P to see who survives Fourvel’s latest reign of tiny terror.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

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.
