There’s a lot of garbage on College Humor (today’s featured content: “Jake & Amir: Tampon”), but there’s also England’s Will Tribble, who’s been churning out some way funny 60-second live-action parodies of famous movies that deserve your love.

Tribble and his merry band of British film students are dedicated to summarizing film in one minute, in one take, with little “South Park” voices on the soundtrack blurting out key lines. The results are pretty impressive, dependent on elaborate shots that either pull backwards really fast or track sideways equally fast, with someone literally running through the plot of the movie, surrounded by impressively choreographed extras and enjoyably shoddy cardboard props.

Their inaugural effort was “Forrest Gump,” which makes sense since, uh, it’s about a guy who runs. Next up was “Kill Bill” (both volumes!), which is timed exactly to a minute, even with inclusion of both fast- and slo-mo.

But their take on “28 Days Later” (which you can watch below) is by far the most impressive, in part because out of the three, it’s the dumbest movie that was inexplicably taken seriously. The gang defangs it with some ridiculously cheery music and fantastic non sequiturs, and the fast-running zombies now seem entirely appropriate.

Tribble notes on his blog that on Saturday he got an e-mail from College Humor saying one of his videos has hit over 75,000 views, the magic number after which the creators start getting paid. The system works! Once in a while! So if you’re one of those people who enjoys obsessively tracking innovative new ways of gaining attention and money as an up-and-coming filmmaker, add that to your list.

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.
