Brittani’s Video Party: Kelsey Kisses Syd Tha Kid for Being Famous

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.

Kelsey is a show about a lesbian that has just been dumped. In the pilot, “Palette Cleanser,” Kelsey’s friends encourage her to get out of the house and have some fun which leads to some unsightly repercussions. Follow the series for the rest of the season 1 run.

There’s a cute viral video alert with “Seeing her for the first time again.” Jason Mortensen woke up from surgery to find a stranger feeding him crackers. Watch his reaction once he realizes the woman in the room is his wife. As awful as it is, I kind of want to see the opposite of this video where someone realizes the mysterious person is their partner and they’re extremely disappointed with their life choices. But I’m a scumbag so.

Syd tha Kid, who I’m sure you have complicated (or just negative) feelings about, dropped a video with her group The Internet. The track is called “Dontcha.” I can’t help but feel positively about a music video in which the artist is so gay that they didn’t even take off their carabiner for the shoot.

Back in March we showed you the trailer for Kiss Her I’m Famous, a webseries starring Tracy Ryerson and directed by Rolla Selbak (Three Veils, Missing Maya). Well now they’re gearing up for Season 2 and part of that involves releasing the first season online for free. Check out the first of five episodes now available on One More Lesbian.

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.

  1. Okay that video was adorable! He was so earnestly impressed with his wife!!! You know you would play a video like that constantly when you needed a confidence boost. Though after you mentioned the opposite version I have to say I would be interested in seeing that too…scumbag human beings unite!

    Seriously though, stupid phone cameras are the exact reason I do not, DO NOT, ever want to be put under again!!! What in the world would I say when I was waking up? Will it get posted on the internet? Or will I make my mother cry? These are all things to consider…I hope my wisdom teeth never start giving me problems.

    He has to be the “Is this real life?” kid all grown up.

  2. I’m kind of late on the Odd Future bandwagon so I’m not exactly sure what the controversy is surrounding Syd tha Kid, but all I know is that she looks and sounds like a total dreamboat here and that I may or may not watch the “Dontcha” video about 800 more times.

  3. I was ready to hate the Syd the kid video and then I watched it and uhm.
    I do want cha, Syd.
    You’re right that video is just so gay.
    And my god if ever I heard a sex song, THAT is a sex song.

  4. I read most of your posts and really enjoyed this one. I also LOVED the one with Jay Z. So cool!
    If someone has a web series they want you to consider covering, how do they do that? Thanks! -Lauren
