Brittani’s Video Party: A Convenient Reason to Hide from Your Family

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.

It’s Thanksgiving (cue song)! Unless you’re not in the States. Or maybe you just don’t care. If either are the case, it’s still Thursday! Thursday should be more people’s favorite day of the week. By far the coolest sounding of all the days and it’s dope because it seems wrong not to care any more on Thursdays but people do it anyway. Thursday or not, it’s fall and that means leaves…in some places. Watch these dudes jump off of a roof into a 17 ft. tall pile. Stupid AND fun!

If your family is anything like mine, you’ll be watching the NFL while bonding (read: ignoring each other). Regardless of sports feelings, you should be impressed with the following two videos. One is of Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s 30 meter bicycle kick. It’s one of the coolest goals I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen at least two goals.

This next one is Grinnell College’s Jack Taylor breaking the NCAA single game scoring record regardless of Division (Grinnell is Division III). Unfortunately, his 138 points were not enough for them to win the game. Just kidding, they won.

Finally we’ve got Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy cop movie, The Heat. It’s directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Freaks and Geeks) and written by Katie Dippold who probably wrote some of your favorite Parks and Rec episodes. Michael Rapaport is in, too. I really like Michael Rapaport because I really liked War at Home. Somebody please report back on whether this is embarrassing or not. My guess is, “Yes, extremely.”

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.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

Brittani has written 328 articles for us.


  1. Life-long England supporter and I feel that Ibra is an inconsistent striker, but FUCK that goal.
    p.s. I love it when my love of football intersects with my love of AS (and also my love of ass)
