Brittani’s Video Party: David Sedaris is on the Edge of Normal with Winnie Cooper

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.

Edge of Normal is the story of six teenage girls who all possess extraordinary, mysterious and dangerous powers. The first six episodes have already been released and YOU WILL  watch them all at once so make sure you have an hour before you embark on this journey. Did I mention it’s a gay journey? There’s a lot of lesbo teen angst happening in this series and I love it.

The one and only Alex Vega, Co-Founder and Design Director of this here website, chatted with Jacob Soboroff on TakePart Live, an actual show on the television machine. Autostraddle underoos even made an appearance alongside Alex Vega’s amazing hair.

Avril Lavigne released her video for Rock N’ Roll. In it she combines two of the most buzzworthy things you can do in a music video: kiss a girl and evoke nostalgia with a former child star. The princess herself and Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper) lock lips while Avril shouts out The Wonder Years with a voiceover.

The first-ever movie adaptation from the essays of author David Sedaris released a trailer and it’s filled with people you love. C.O.G. stars Troian Bellisario, Casey Wilson, and Jonathan Groff. Bellisario is even channeling some Spencer-like outfits in the trailer.

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.

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. I love every single moment of that Avril Lavigne video and I am not even (that) ashamed to admit it. :x

    • the video was so confusing for me to watch because it is kind of awful but i loved every second!

    • I didn’t understand what was happening in any single moment of that video. And I think that makes me love it?

    • if you mute it, it’s PERFECT. Which is what I did after 30 seconds.

      Love the guy waving around the Straddle This boxer briefs.

      extra love David Sedaris. This is a good week.

  2. Edge of normal! I wanted to see more of Riley and Natalie…too bad I think this season is only those 6 eps

  3. Sorry hated every single(of the first 1:30 I could make it through) of that Avril video. Mostly just made me angsty and nauseous

  4. I thought I recognized the scenery and stores shown in the Sedaris trailer, but that couldn’t be. I looked up and it was filmed in my town, I had no idea.
