Earlier this week, I regaled you all with a big pile of movie trailers that had been clogging my YouTube page waiting for me to blog about them. Welp, now we’re doing the same thing, but with Honest Trailers by Screen Junkies! These are always reliably entertaining.
And that’s that! Each one is a gem, each one is really short, and they’re a mildly entertaining way to pass some time and enjoy the internet. I hope the people making these enjoy making them. I enjoy watching them, and isn’t that all we really need from entertainment sources on the internet?
Maybe I should find more original content to share…
I love a good Simpsons meme, especially the bit where the internet keeps remaking the Skinner/Chalmers steamed hams bit. It’s just so wonderfully chaotic. I shared this awesome LEGO version a month ago. And just the other day, I stumbled upon this version where YouTuber bad puns animates it into the classic A-ha music video for “Take On Me”.
Absurdist humor is a great kind of humor! The animation looks gorgeous, the music is as catchy as ever, and the steamed hams bit never gets old. What an age we live in.
No wait, the age we live in is terrible! Somebody free me from this quarantine nightmare!
I love the fact that the “steamed hams” bit from The Simpsons became this weird meme. It’s the perfect kind of insane.
Apparently it’s still a thing, because here’s the entire scene done in amazing LEGO by Chuwawa on YouTube!
I mean, that’s absolutely perfect, right? The animation is gorgeous and flows like butter! The jokes are just as funny today as they were all those years ago. This is memedom to perfection!
If this Chuwawa fellow is looking to get hired somewhere as an animator, I’d say this definitely makes the highlight reel.
It’s the last day of my vacation, so my laziness is still at peak Sean. So how about we enjoy this Monday with this funny Simpsons/real life video from Katrin von Niederhäusern. It’s really fun!
I should probably visit New Orleans some day. I’ve lived in America for my entire life but I’ve barely visited a quarter of it.
I haven’t seen a new episode of The Simpsons in a very long time. I assume that’s probably the case for most of us. But this weekend is giving me cause to watch because Morgan Spurlock has apparently made an hour-long sports documentary about that classic episode Homer at the Bat. It’s the one about softball with all the baseball guest stars!
I love this kind of thing. Making sports mockumentaries about TV shows and movies. Have you ever seen the Space Jam episode of 30 for 30? Hilarious!
And, of course, I can’t leave you with reminders of Homer at the Bat without also linking that great end credits song!
