It’s been a grueling week and as we claw our ways to the weekend, it’s important to start our two-day break right with a hearty helping of funny videos. Absorb and revel in the goofiness — your mental health will thank you.
From Fred Armisen’s word search help to Steve Harvey meeting his robotic replacement, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.
1. Word Search with Fred Armisen
Comedian Ana Lucia Fabrega (from the Comedy Crib series Boy Band) enlists the advice of Portlandia and Documentary Now!‘s own Fred Armisen to help her complete the most daunting of tasks: a word search puzzle. Unfortunately, what should take 30-60 seconds ends up pushing ten minutes due to Fred and Ana’s amusingly passive-aggressive bickering.
2. Scott Aukerman’s 100 Nicknames
If you’re anything like Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman, you’ve said the name “Scott Aukerman” so many times that it’s started to lose its meaning and has congealed into amorphous sounds. Such is the case, apparently, of the CB!B! crew member in charge of the on-screen chyrons. Check out this supercut of 100 times the show just couldn’t quite get Scott’s name right.
3. Batcat V Supercat
Reviews were decidedly mixed for Zack Snyder’s long-awaited match-up between the Dark Knight and the Son of Krypton. But from the looks of this fur-laden short featuring very Internet-friendly characters, the bombastic brawl would’ve been far more well-received had it been between two cats. Check out Batcat lure Supercat to do his bidding via a citywide laser pointer.
4. Rey Meets Monty Python’s The Enchanter
In stark contrast to Bats V Supes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was heralded by critics and fans for reinvigorating the aging franchise which was permanently bruised by prequels. But what if Rey’s search for an old Jedi savior ended in a different cinematic universe, namely Monty Python and the Holy Grail? Here, with the help of some After Effects rotoscoping, Rey meets John Cleese as The Enchanter (aka Tim).
5. Steve Harvey Vs. Robo-Comedian
Tossing political candidates, televangelists, and late night hosts into his Lynchian nightmares, YouTuber and Vine star Vic Berger can do no wrong. And just a few weeks after he had Family Feud host Steve Harvey face his own existential hell, the absurdist editor pits Harvey against a mustachioed robotic replacement — much to the delight of Steve’s audience. Cruel and surreal, it’s pure Vic Berger.
