30 Second Bunnies
Your most favourite — or hated — movie brought down to 30 seconds and enacted by animated bunnies. Say what? Yes, 30 Second Bunnies does it all, from jumping around a sinking Titanic screaming “Jaaaaack” to leaping from tree to tree as Edward and Bella. Laugh out loud!
Annoying Orange is so annoying that it has got a YouTube channel of its own! This American comedy web series, created by Dane Boedigheimer in 2009, features a psychotic, digitised orange with bad teeth and a squint, sitting on a kitchen counter cracking PJs and bugging the hell out of all the other fruits and vegetables. It lusts after Passion Fruit and says “Wassup?” to wasabi!
This four-minute-40-second video brings out the biggest belly laughs. Originally a Tamil film song featuring Prabhudheva and our own Jaya Seal Ghosh, Benny Lava has English subtitles for the Tamil lyrics that sound like English. Make no mistake — it’s not a literal translation, and it’s hilariously nonsensical.
Superman Govinda — clad in red-and-blue Spandex — and Spider Girl Kimi Katkar do their own ‘superhero’ thing, Bolly-style! They fly across the Mumbai skies, jig to lyrics that go Tu mera Superman/ Tu meri lady/ Ho gaya hai apna pyaar already... and take on the bad boys, all at the same time. A rip-off of ’80s Bollywood, this is a little gem.
The famous face-off between Neo and Agent Smith at the train station in The Matrix has been turned into a side-splitting dialogue sequence in Bangal. Think the menacing Agent Smith spouting, ‘Kuddush, tui amare madan paisos?’ Keep a ear out for the sound effects of verbal dhishum-dhishums as Neo and Agent Smith bash each other up.
Pon and Zi
Morbid but cute, these well-rounded and hilariously emo (emotional, silly) dudes can break your heart, quite literally. Popular with the soppy as well as the warped, Pon and Zi is a web comic that makes you realise just how bizarre love can be.
Annoying profs, exam blues, term paper woes and more, PHD Comics is a glimpse of student life at its best, worst and quirkiest.
Uncyclopedia is a satirical take on Wikipedia and disseminates knowledge that you probably haven’t gathered already. Try this excerpt on Hitler: Some historians suggest Hitler may have felt cramped inside his mother’s womb, giving way to his later resentment of foreigners invading his already cramped space in Europe. It has also been suggested that the insides of Hitler’s mom were not diverse enough, contributing to his later xenophobia. In addition, the nutrient needs of an unbirthed Hitler may have, from time to time, gone unfulfilled. This most likely contributed to his paranoia and sense of impending doom regarding the continued availability of resources at Germany’s disposal, including Aryans. In splits already?
The tagline reads — Unintentionally Funny, Must-Watch Bollywood Movies… Stripping That Movie That Just Released One Stick-figure At a Time! Our man Sahil Rizwan is a movie buff and his blog, The Vigil Idiot, reads much like a comic strip. Sahil uses stick figures to pick the loopholes in and poke fun at all new releases — mostly Bolly, some Holly. Check out this frame from Rowdy Rathore. The Vigil Idiot counts filmmaker Anurag Kashyap among its followers!
