I loves and hates the internet. On the one hand it allows me to get in touch with my relatives living abroad, I can make bank transfers from home and I find it very educational. On the other hand, it makes me fight with people I’ve never met, I’m poor from all the useless stuff I buy online and it makes me stupid. Happy, but stupid.
I never thought I would spend so much time watching stupid videos online. If I had taken advantage of learning another language at the same time, I would have already published my first epic fiction novel in Mandarin. I hope you will enjoy these videos and that you will join me in the club of happy procrastinators.
1. Naked Tuesday on Stan
Nude Tuesday is a brilliant and very funny New Zealand movie filmed in gibberish, with various subtitle options. You can choose the one written by Julia Davis or the one written by Celia Pacquola and Ronny Chieng. This makes them two totally different funny movies. Recommended!
2. Kirsty Webeck’s Twitter feed
Kirsty Webeck isn’t just a hilarious comedian, she’s also a tweeting machine! She shoots a million tweets a day. She has all kinds of silly topical jokes, as well as plenty of tweets featuring her pets Fergie and Joan. Jokes, cats and dogs – what else do you need?
3. Official Anthem of the Birds
I can spend all day watching funny animal voiceover videos. @thenatureparty on Instagram has some great ones. I highly recommend the Official Bird Anthem video – it’s priceless.
4. Gleyf Brauly’s cover of Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer
Gleyf Brauly is a singer and plays the keyboard. He’s from Brazil and he can play and sing any cover in the world. Especially American pop hits from the 80s and 90s. He doesn’t speak a word of English though; he sings the songs the way he thinks they sound.
5. What your gym program says about you
Tedsthetics sits in his car and shares his thoughts on everything from pizza toppings to Australian shops, coffee and tattoos. What he says is very precise and you can’t make me change my mind!
6. How Dog Breeds Fight
Jonny Devaney interprets different breeds of dogs in different situations. It’s very impressive how he captures the essence of any race. I had no idea comparing a corgi to a Yorkshire terrier in a fight could be so funny.
7. Music video clips without music
I mean, I can’t. It’s so funny; too funny. The power of the musical score in movies is so misunderstood. It can turn a hilarious video into a romantic story. I can watch these videos over and over and sniff each time.
8. David making a baguette
Duncan Evans (AKA @curlykidlife) caught my eye when I came across one of his Instagram posts – a video layering famous DJ David Guetta over cooking videos. This masterpiece is called “David making a baGuetta”. It’s flawless.
9. Drew Lynch – Concussed
Every once in a while you meet a comedian you’ve never heard before and instantly like. Drew Lynch was one of my big discoveries this year. His jokes are incredibly well crafted, very chill, paired with a likeable personality. His stand-up special, Concussed, is very funny.
10. The Little Chef Show
The internet’s cutest felt chef. He speaks in a silly Tiny Chef language (which I almost perfected) that will make anyone laugh in utter delight.
Ivan Aristeguieta’s comedy special Happy Papi airs on Paramount+. It is one of eight stand-up specials filmed at the Malthouse Theater in Melbourne
