The 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week 5/15

by on May 15, 2012

If you’re trying to reconcile the casting of Arrested Development‘s Jeffrey Tambor in Dane Cook’s upcoming NBC series Next Caller, the following videos might help. This week’s 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos runs the gamut of comedic video art all the way to a very tight pants contest between Will Ferrell and Jimmy Fallon.

Hopefully, you’ll be feeling better.

1. For the live screening of This American Life, Mike Birbiglia gave NPR’s Fresh Air the Hollywood treatment.

2. Absurdist sketch group Women (Dave Ross, Jake Weisman, & Allen Strickland Williams) submitted their version of Musical Chairs that’s hilariously akin to a David Lynch version of musical chairs, if that ever existed, which is why it’s on this week’s 5 MIFV.

3. Dean Fleischer-Camp (Marcel The Shell With Shoes On) caught several people posing for a smile

4. Friends of Dan St. Germain attempt to throw him out of their apartment in this new web series for My Damn Channel.

5. The studio of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is only big enough for one male celebrity to wear tight pants like Will Ferrell.

I’m always looking for new funny videos to feature for the 5 MIFV. Same rules still apply.
