Five Fun Videos -- One For Every Rupee

I have been very distressed over the last twenty four hours or so, primarily consumed with the future of the Pakistani state and the irresponsible detachment with (and the willful ignorance) of Pakistan's militancy problem by the majority of its citizens and decision-making elite. With that in mind, here are five videos (four of which have been posted before on this blog) that always make me smile, irrespective of how many times I watch them.

In the first, you are admonished to not waste the time, dear.



In the second -- another music video, by the way -- Kermit the frog causes multiple turns in the grave by the late Johnny Cash.



In the third, a reporter tries unsuccessfully to file a report just the way he wants it:



In the fourth, we see that Britain may indeed have talent:



And in the fifth, Argentina treat us to an orgasmic goal:



Readers are encouraged to add their own recommendations of smile-inducing videos in the comments section.

AKS said...

Shahbaz Shariff video is awesome. Thanks, bubs.

Supe, Benny Lava is legendary.

Bruno said...

The fifth one reminds me of that epic Simpsons scene "Back to the wing - back to center - center holds it....."

Zeyd:

Haan, I know, but I think Cash is the one who made it famous, and Cash is the one being made fun of in the Kermit video.

Sidrah:

He couldn't possibly do a worse job than the one we currently have.

Bubs:

Brilliant. I want whatever he smoked.

Supe:

Thanks for the links.

Bruno:

Haha yes, if you're an American (or a non-football fan), I can see how a connection can be drawn between that goal and the Simpsons lampooning the sport. Wait a minute. Now that I think about it, are you sure that wasn't from Family Guy? My memory is playing tricks on me...

There are just some people who have an innate sense on how to make someone laugh and I think Russell Peters is definitely one of them. He is hilarious especially with his imitations and his accents are incredible.He is just too funny. I have watched his show with my cousins and friends in New York and we couldn't stop laughing.His video on arranged marriage and on Indian accents gets me rolling on the floor laughing and tears are coming out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaNHO1mvCiE&feature=PlayList&p=EF0820B8A7FA411F&playnext=1&index=41 and on Indian accent

ahsan - half the country is delusional (about the existential threat to Pakistan from armed militancy) while the other half (aided by the media jehadi's) are appeasers. No amount of counterinsurgency assistance by our 'friends' can help to win this war if the people of Pakistan are not aligned behind it. This is a war we are well on our way to losing.

@ supe- You are pathetic.Instead of wasting time here, why don't you join Taliban and learn better ways to address people.

Supe..

Man, check out the Croatian version of Benny Lava.. Has a better flavor than the Korean one in my books :)

AKS,
Great collection of vids. Lauged my a$$ 0ff, the ones suggested in comments were too good too.

supe said...

thanks ray,
that was pretty damn good! i'm surprised they were able to keep a straight face.
however, i'm sorry, i've grown attached to the hot korean in the blue shorts, it's all about the koreans.

@Ahsan

No, that was Simpsons, not family guy, Episode "The Cartridge Family". And yes, I am a European football fan and I do appreciate the brilliancy of that goal, but the constant back-and-forth just triggered that memory; so it induced even more smile than it otherwise would have.
