Since it’s Christmas Day, I thought it would be good to have a bit of a light-hearted and funny post today. Forget about the web apps and software for a moment and instead just have a laugh.
So I dug deep into my YouTube favourites and picked my ten favourite funniest YouTube videos ever. Here they are.
Beaker’s Ode To Joy
Beaker from the Muppets tries to play Beethoven’s Ode To Joy but predictably everything blows up around his ears.
The Death Star Canteen
Eddie Izzard’s famous sketch, using Lego, on what it is like in the Star Wars Death Star canteen.
“I am Lord Vader! I can kill you with a single thought!”
“You’ll still need a tray!”
Korean Drummer Steals The Show
Watch the drummer in the background. He’s either high on something or he thinks he’s Larry Mullen in U2. His crowning moment is at 3.01. Make sure you’re not drinking anything at that point or you’ll choke on it.
Chad Vader – Day Shift Manager
There’s been lots of Star Wars rip-offs over the years but this one is definately one of the best ones. This one is Darth Vader’s brother, Chad, who works as a grocery store manager. Needless to say, Chad is a bit of a loser, overshadowed by his brother, but always seem to come out on top in the end.
If you want to see the other episodes, the complete playlist is here.
Chad Vader – Grocery Store Training Videos
Not as good as the Day Shift Manager videos but still very funny. Here’s episode one – A Spy In Produce – and the complete playlist is here.
The Blue Danube Waltz
Back to the Muppets again. “The Blue Danube Waltz” as conducted by The Great Gonzo and featuring the lovely Camilla.
Phil Collins Gorilla Cadburys Chocolate Advert
This advert was apparently extremely popular in the UK and it advertises Cadburys chocolate. Watch the eyes of the gorilla as he goes for it at the drums. Classic.
Another Star Wars rip-off but one that is really funny. This one is Emperor Palpatine and he takes questions such as Death Star design flaws, sings songs and so on. The show is obviously very low budget and it’s looks like papier mache with a hood over it but that doesn’t stop it from being one of my must-watch shows.
Here is the playlist to watch all the episodes.
Homer Simpson Tries To Vote For Obama
Homer tries to vote for Obama but the voting machine registers his vote for McCain instead. When Homer loudly complains, the machine tries to eat him.
Hillarious Youtube video. And I’ve saved the best till last. This is a woman who entered a Bulgarian version of American Idol and wanted to sing Mariah Carey’s “Without You”. But she made up all her own words (thinking they were the real words and thinking she could speak English). The song’s title is “Without You” but she thinks it’s called “Ken Lee”. Watch and I challenge you to keep a straight face. Watch the judges struggle to keep their composure.
Oh and by the way, this woman is now apparently famous and is constantly asked back to the show to repeat her performance!
So that’s my ten favourite funniest YouTube videos so far. What do you think?
