Twentieth Century Fox theme on a flute:

I watched this several times and could not stop laughing. By myself.

Worst cover of Europe's "The Final Countdown" (an oldie but goodie):

I love when the singer repeats the echoes from the original recording.

Trolling Saruman.

Not really a funny one, but just FYI: Gapers Block has a YouTube channel!

Oh, BTW, our spam system may trap your comment if you post more than one or two URLs. I'll keep an eye out and publish anything that gets caught, but it may take awhile. Have patience.

The Mies Van Der Rohe music video is pretty funny for an architecture themed video.

Tommy Davidson singing the theme from 'Moonlighting'.

'Comfortably Numb' covered by a bunch of guys who look pretty numb themselves (I bet they started their band in AA).

We've all had nights like this.

I second the Las Palmas video. A friend sent that to me a few months ago and I watched it six times in a row, laughing hysterically each time. I love when she swishes around the wine glass.

One of my favorites is the Sprite Sun Fizz commercial directed by Spike Jonze.

This is my sister's cat. She got herself stuck in a plastic bag, but walked around for a while like she did it on purpose.
