5. Da’Quan: Higher Learning (Harvard University) by 3gPresents
A pranking video with decent pranks, but the setting is what really makes it. The erudite folks of Harvard and surrounding areas get blatantly annoyed, flabbergasted, and variously harassed by Da’Quan, who’s basically 70% of his way to being an Edbassmaster-level character. Solid.
4.Lmao Holy Sh*t Vine by Cody Reetz via BestVineVideos
Nothing to be said here except quoting Louis CK on farts and why they’re funny:
Farts are—I just refuse to be snobbish about certain sh*t with comedy. You know, farts come out of your ass and they make a f*cking trumpet sound. That sh*t smelling gas comes out of your ass and it makes a toot sound. What the f*ck is not funny about that? It’s perfect, it’s a perfect joke. It has all the elements.
3. How to Go Trick-or-Treating as an Adult by Mr. Forthright
Some decent jokes relating to the titular premise, but a lot of why this video is more than just decently funny is that Mr. Forthright is clearly someone’s grandpa and he’s saying stuff like “there’s definitely a wrong way to eat a Reese’s.” You just don’t see that everyday, guys.
2. Honest Trailers – Pacific Rim by Screen Junkies
I haven’t even seen the movie and this tickled me. I think it’s funny because amid the sharp, witty criticism, these dudes are still willing to admit it looks cool. Also, love the stuff about the romantic aspect (“will-they-won’t-they relationship”) not paying off like every movie ever.
1. Detroit Newscast via WorldStarSwag
It starts off with the newscaster dropping off slang flawlessly, then she actually says “Seagram’s Happy Juice,” which let’s face it, may be the greatest name for a drink ever. From there, the vernacular is impeccably colorful and delivered in that ubiquitous over-enunciating newscaster voice — it’s the perfect combination.
As if that wasn’t enough, the guy just straight up says “This Is Detroit And We Will Come Squat In Your House If You’re Not Home.” Welp,ok then.
