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 Better Half is a series about “two girls in a loving long-term relationship, struggling to find excitement and romance in the midst of comfort and friendship.” Amy Jackson Lewis (Anyone But Me) and Lindsay Hicks star. When you’re done with “Going Out,” watch “Sunny-Side Up” and “Lesbifriends” so you’re all caught up on the series.
Tegan and Sara released the music video for their song, “Goodbye, Goodbye.” They’re really showing off their literacy privilege with this one (this is a joke). If there are other things you’d rather do than read the lyrics to the song via text messages, perhaps that includes watching a remake of their video for “Closer” with dogs.
Sarah Silverman appeared on W. Kamau Bell’s show, Totally Biased, and talked about their one-sided feud from a few years back. They settled the beef and got into how bothered she was by the ageist/sexist jokes being made at her expense during Comedy Central’s Roast of James Franco. If you haven’t seen Aziz Ansari’s response to the gay jokes made about Franco and the race-related jokes made about him, you should see that as a primer.
Chipotle teamed up with Moonbot Studios to create the animated short, “The Scarecrow.” The three minute video is meant to promote a free app where a scarecrow battles factory farming. An iPhone app AND sustainable farming? Weird combination, I know. Go ahead and add some Fiona Apple vocals to that mix while you’re at it.
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.
