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.
