Watch Every TV Comedy Star You Can Think Of in the Beastie Boys' New Video (NSFW)

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 27th 2011 3:30PM
Danny McBride, Seth Rogen and Elijah Wood in 'Fight For Your Right (Revisited)'We're not sure how they were able to do this, but the Beastie Boys just released a video with pretty much every major TV and movie comedy star you can think of, leaning heavily towards the TV side.

At least the reason why they did it was a good one: Believe it or not, it's been 25 years since the Beastie Boys tore up MTV with their classic music video '(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)' Yes, that sound you hear is the arthritis in your knees crackling at the thought that Beasties have been around for that long, much less that it was a quarter-century since you heard that song in high school.

To celebrate the anniversary of the song and their debut album, 'Licensed to Ill,' the Beasties created a 30-minute music video called 'Fight for Your Right (Revisited),' which strings together tracks from their soon-to-drop album, 'Hot Sauce Committee Part 2.' A red-band trailer for the video rocketed across the interwebs last week, but the full video wasn't released until yesterday.

The NSFW video and more after the jump.

Paul F. Tompkins and John Hodgman Mock Green Day in New Ted Leo Music Video

by Gabrielle Dunn, posted Aug 24th 2010 5:30PM
Paul F TompkinsIt's always fun when worlds collide -- like when musicians and TV comedy stars hang out in real life. But it's even better when all these awesome people decide to collaborate on a hilarious project.

The new Ted Leo and the Pharmacists music video for the song 'Bottled in Cork' (below) features comedians John Hodgman ('The Daily Show') and Paul F. Tompkins ('Mr. Show,' 'Best Week Ever') in roles as a theater critic and a Broadway mogul respectively.

The video, directed by WFMU radio favorite Tom Scharpling, parodies the band Green Day for its decision to use its 2004 album 'American Idiot' as the basis for a Broadway musical of the same name. Green Day faced criticism for the decision from punk purists and Ted Leo's video definitely cuts deep.

Magnifico! The Muppets Do 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (VIDEO)

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 24th 2009 3:47PM

The Muppets Studio has posted a new video on YouTube of all your favorite Muppet characters performing Queen's rock classic 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'

The Muppets' version manages to be even more majestic, surreal and shamelessly excessive than the original Queen video -- and even the famous scene from 'Wayne's World' that served as an introduction to the song for a whole new generation.

Check it out after the jump, and set aside some time for repeat viewings; it actually gets better and more brilliant as it goes along, ending with a rather unexpected and amusing punchline from Kermit himself.

The worlds of NCIS and rap music, together at last

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 16th 2009 3:27PM
I don't think of LL Cool J as a rap star anymore, I think of him as an actor. But this video below showcases both of his talents. It's for the new NCIS spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles, which I'm sure will be shortened to NCIS: LA at some point.

The song is called "No Crew Is Superior" and goes on waaaaaaay too long, but it does show a lot of clips from the show.

Royal Pains raps up its first season

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 21st 2009 2:30PM
I've found that the only time that I like rap music is when someone is doing a takeoff on rap music. This video is something the cast and crew of Royal Pains did to celebrate the season finale of the show (next Thursday - it's coming back for a second season). It's not very funny or even good musically, but they seem to be having a good time.

Now I'm just waiting for the Burn Notice country music video.

America's Got Talent: Audition show 8

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 16th 2009 12:45AM
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
(S04E08) "They will let anybody on this show. Why?" - Nick after seeing a bad act

Haven't you watched the show before, Nick? Didn't your agent tell you what the series was all about before you signed on the dotted line? America's Got Talent is all about everyday people showcasing their talents. And, as it is the case for American Idol, anyone and everyone can audition, meaning that the audition episodes will be filled with bad acts performed by people who should have stayed home.

Tonight's installment featured an excerpt of Mariah Carey's new music video for the song "Obsessed." The song is not too bad, but I miss "Vision of Love" Mariah with the bigger vocals and usage of her full and impressive voice range. The clip, even if we didn't see it in its entirety (it may have aired fully in your area), seemed to be entertaining enough to air a million times on MTV in the next month. In case you missed the announcement, Mariah, aka AGT's host Nick Cannon's wife, will perform live on the show during the August 5 result episode.

Now onto comments about tonight's acts, including links to see more from some of the performers!

When you think of Michael Jackson, you also think of Weird Al

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 26th 2009 1:28PM
You can't think about the life and career of Michael Jackson without also thinking of Weird Al Yankovic. He did parodies of several Jackson songs, and while a lot of people like "Eat It," I've always liked "Fat," his take on Jackson's "Bad" (Al loves the food references, eh?). Yo, ding dong, man, ding dong!

Zach Galifianakis does a video for Kanye West

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 26th 2007 9:01AM
zach galifianakis; kanye west; will oldhamComedian Zach Galifianakis has outdone himself this time. First, he appeared in the Fiona Apple video, "Not About Love." Now he's lip syncing in Kanye West's new music video for "Can't Tell Me Nothing". We know Kanye's in on it because it's posted here on West's official website.

I don't know if you guys saw the Fiona Apple video, but I found it hilarious because it just seemed to come out of left field. Fiona seems like she takes herself so seriously, so having Zach appear with her and do the lip syncing in the video was surprisingly amusing.

The idea of doing this kind of thing again for a different singer seemed a little lame... until you see the video. Zach is bad assing as some sort of Amish farmer on his own farm in North Carolina. He's spitting on people and humping farm equipment. He's accompanied by comedian musician Will Oldham and a troupe of dancing girls dressed like they came out of the movie Heidi.

Warning: Song includes some profanity.

Fountains of Demetri

by Adam Finley, posted May 12th 2007 9:02AM

demetri martinComedian and Daily Show trendspotter Demetri Martin appears in the new Fountains of Wayne video for their song "Someone to Love." Martin plays "Seth," a big city lawyer, which is fitting since he himself went to law school, although he did drop out one year before getting his degree.

The song, like all of Fountain of Wayne's songs, is really catchy and you'll probably find yourself singing it in the shower. Or, if you're like me, you'll actually learn how to play it on guitar so you can both sing and play it in the shower. This actually warps the guitar pretty bad, which is why I break into a music warehouse every night and steal a new one.

Lost/SNL parody: Dad in a box - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 12th 2007 8:23AM
lostJust when I got the original "Dick in a Box" song out of my head, it's back in a new form. Some fans of Lost have created a parody of the Justin Timberlake/Andy Samburg music video called "Dad in a Box".

Lost fans will get that title immediately and probably even snicker. It refers to a recent episode where Ben tells John Locke all about a "magic box" on the island where you can wish for something and it will suddenly appear.

The "Dad in a Box" music video is after the jump.

Evel Knievel sues Kanye West over music video

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 14th 2006 10:34AM
evel knievelEvel Knievel doesn't mince words. When talking about his lawsuit against a Kanye West music video, he says, "That video that Kanye West put out is the most worthless piece of crap I've ever seen in my life." He's talking about the video for the song "Touch the Sky", where Kanye suits up as "Evel Kanyevel" jumps a canyon. Knievel says West didn't have the right to dress like him (in a snazzy red, white and blue suit) or ride a motorcycle that closely resembled the one Knievel used when he jumped Idaho's Snake River Canyon in 1974. Knievel says the video is "vulgar and offensive" and it damages his reputation.

Well, I agree with Evel Knievel on one point: that video did really suck. But, this lawsuit just makes Knievel sound like a grumpy old man waving his cane in the air.

Behind the scenes of a Weird Al video - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 4th 2006 3:01PM

weird alMaybe it's just because I'm older, but when I see Weird Al Yankovic now it seems he lets the facade drop a little more than usual and isn't so bent on being "on" all the time. Of course, as a youngster that's why I was so drawn to him, because he didn't seem like someone who was acting weird, he seemed like someone who was actually like that all the time. While I haven't bought a Weird Al album in over a decade, I still gotta give props to the man for sticking around and acting as a kind of needle that deflates the balloon of pop cultural excess. I may not listen to him as much anymore, but I think music needs someone like Weird Al to keep everyone from getting too full of themselves.

After the jump you can watch a behind-the-scenes look at Yankovic's video for "White and Nerdy."

Heidi Klum's weird holiday music video - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 28th 2006 10:36AM
heidi klumHeidi Klum has a really weird holiday music video that looks like it was directed by the same person who does David Hasselhoff's videos. Best Week Ever characterized it as a karaoke video, which is pretty accurate. It's extremely cheerful and starry, with lots of snow and children. Plus, it has cheesy lyrics like the chorus: "Wonderland, wonderland. Shining Stars. Jingle Bells." Try getting that out of your head after you hear it!

Video is after the jump:
