Brittani’s Video Party: You’re Invited

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.

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.

  3. les mis is going to be terrible. I LOVE the musical but it’s just not going to be good. they took the only girl with any talent and stuck her into the smallest role possible and brought in a bunch of stars who can’t sing live but yet they refuse to prerecord any of the songs…

    • Who can beat Geoffrey Rush’s perfect Javert, Liam Neeson as ValJean and Claire Danes as Cosette? I just don’t understand why they needed to remake this movie. It was perfect in 1998.

      • exactly! but if they’re going to do it, they should at least be doing it right. the only good casting decision was Samantha barks as Eponine. I mean Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen proved in Sweeney Todd that they can’t handle something like this. I wish they had the 25th anniversary Thénardiers because they were amazing…

      • Eh, that movie was well-cast but I wasn’t a huge fan of it. It also wasn’t a musical, which is why they’re re-making it.
