That’s terrible! (Some videos for de-stressing after tax day)

April 15, 2010

I know it’s been a while since I posted something, but I had to do my taxes.  And even though I’m not an accountant, having a degree in that field guarantees that I will field many a phone call with questions in the first half of April.  Anyhoo, it’s all over and I’m back on schedule.  So here we go…

I came across this great site called everythingisterrible.com.  It’s a great time-waster if you have a few extra minutes.  They basically post all the terrible videos they can find.  The best part is that most of these videos were meant to be taken seriously.  I wanted put up a couple of my favorites that I found while rummaging through their material, but I highly suggest that you check it out for yourself.  It’s hilarious.

 

Harry Potter is going to ruin tomorrow’s leaders!!!

I went to a private elementary and high school, so I absolutely remember all the crap thrown at us about how this movie or that book was going to turn us to Satan himself.  Even when I was 12 I thought that was ridiculous.  It looks like that whole movement is still going strong.  Poor kids.  They can’t enjoy anything anymore without a disclaimer.

 

Once the babies begin, the life ends

I love this one.  (Especially the opening mullet!)  This is a warning video for all the women out there.  Men don’t understand pregnancy.  You know, like being worried about poking the baby in the head.

 

Sling… bang… BOOM!

At the risk of sounding redundant, I went to a private school.  I saw plenty of cheesy, ridiculous media presentations to try to increase my love for the Lord.  Most of them just made me laugh.  But I never saw one that can hold a candle to this one.  I don’t think this video is historically accurate, though.  I don’t seem to remember learning about David’s Motown backup singers.  The only thing that would have made this better is replacing “Now what was that you were saying, bigshot?” with “Who’s the bitch now?”

 

 Even Syfy would pass on this one

I love Syfy original movies.  They’re wonderfully cheesy.  The best part about is they know they’re cheesy so they totally run with it.  This movie (I believe it’s called Deadly Prey) would get laughed right out of their executive offices.  It’s not because of the horrible acting, they already have plenty of that. (Read: Megashark vs. Giant Octopus)  It’s that this guy just screams way too much.

 

The American dream is dead!!!  Better call IDN.

This must have been one of the first MLM schemes advertised on TV and probably inspired the “out of my one bedroom apartment” guy from the 90’s. I don’t even remember his name.  Anyways, they got Flo-Jo to plug this.  The best part is they say how much money everyone is making, then say it’s not about the money. 

 

I always knew there was something odd going on at the gym.

I don’t even know where to go with this one, except that I think they’re enjoying every second of it.

 

Never bring a knife to a cop fight

I’m not sure where this came from, but I assume it’s some part of a police training video.  In Canada.

 

Go to work and die!

To close, we will look at dangerous working conditions.  My wife works at a workers compensation insurance company, so we always get a kick out of these.  They saved us some time and cut it down to all the ailments you can get in an office setting and what you can do about stress.  My favorite is the warning about loose clothing around a printer.  Like that HP Laserjet is going to grab your tie and cut your head off.  Hilarious.

Like I said earlier, you need to check out Everything is Terrible! when you want some mindless entertainment.  They have hundreds of videos like these.
