5. iWork by Edbassmaster
EdBassmaster delivers another bizarre character bothering people and let’s face it, in terms of YouTube pranks, Ed is one of those people who actually brings some personality to the table — not that the rare high-production value prank isn’t amazing.
4. Applying Film Theory to their Home Movie by RamseyBrosPictures
Conceptually similar to a classic Key and Peele sketch, but the dynamic between the brothers and petty argumentation puts this one into uncharted hilarious territory. Brilliant.
3. Officer Maggot by thankscomputer [HIGHLY OFFENSIVE]
By far the most offensive video to be featured in today’s round-up, Officer Maggot does everything wrong, cringe-worthy, racist, and just plain obnoxious in this 13 minute epic sketch. The thing is, you can’t sustain 13 mins of an obnoxious cop unless you do it with some real originality and panache, and Officer Maggot, despite his cliched racist and sexist tendencies, somehow brings something new to the table. He kinds of reminds me of a character that fell out of UHF or something. Hilarious.
2. Hugging Tough Guys by Sam
A YouTube prank with a little bit of love. Hilarious how this act of affection can make some bros so angry. Also, makes one ask the question, what does this really say about you if you get this angry from someone trying to hug you? Fascinating and funny.
1. Hell No: The Sensible Horror Film by PixelsPerSecond
This very realistic horror movie gets props for being flawlessly written and a concept anyone can relate with and understand. We’ve all seen movies and screamed at the protagonist’s plot-driven irrationality, and this sketch is seriously cathartic to that end. It brilliantly spoofs some specific horror films while at the same time lampooning the whole genre, and really begs the question, can’t we get a horror movie that doesn’t rely so much on stupid characters doing implausible things? Phenomenal and an easy number one for today, and probably the week.
