Greetings. This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

The trailer for Les Miserables is out. I think you people are into that. I’ve tried to watch the 1998 version several times and have fallen asleep just as many times. This go around, the cast is stacked with people you might care about like Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Amanda Seyfried. It’s directed by Tom Hooper who is no stranger to movies that visually just LOOK sad (aka The King’s Speech).
Purity Ring released a video for “Lofticries” from Shrines on Monday. The video was directed by AG Rojas and the transitions are enough of a reason to watch. Unless you’re easily freaked out. Then don’t watch. Sometimes I’m one of those people that tries to break down a video and figure out what all the symbolism and such means but sometimes I just can’t. This is one of those times. Maybe someone will be able to coax what I think the video means out of me in the comments but until then…
SNL’s resident lesbian Kate McKinnon impersonated middle-America’s favorite lez, Ellen DeGeneres on SNL. Because Ellen knows how to take a joke, she broke the clip down on her show pointing out a few inaccuracies. At the end of the day, Ellen impersonations just means more Ellen so I’m ok with it.
As you may or may not have seen by now, the good folks at College Humor came out with one of the best arguments marriage equality supporters have yet: give us our rights or gay dudes will marry your girlfriends. I’m fairly certain an equally compelling argument could be made for lesbians marrying straight dudes but who cares about women having rights, ya know.
If you have a video you think everyone should see, tweet it to @bishilarious for consideration. And of course feel free to post your favorite videos from the week below.
