So, frogs have reportedly have a mating call that attracts preying bats. Luckily, they don’t have enough self-awareness to realize how terrifying it is to have your mating call be the same call that attracts hunters and killers. Although, I do have to say that there are worst ways to go out dying that only humans could come up with, like the jellyfish in Seven Pounds. With that being said, The Most Intentionally Funny Video of The Day is a great to forget about all the horrifying information I just presented.

Today’s MIFV is a promotional trailer for B.J. Novak‘s upcoming collection of short stories One More Thing that features Mindy Kaling, pictures of Rainn Wilson, and as much French New Wave influence as you can handle.

Here’s the previous MIFV pick, in case you missed it.

Per usual, I’m taking submissions for the MIFV like so many featured in the past. I love finding new, hilarious videos from people hundreds and thousands of miles away, so please do send your videos so long as they follow the rules below.
