Midnight Beast, a midget, and folks from British YouTube lollering: it's the week in video
Andrew Mickel30 June 2012
The best of the week's comedy action on YouTube...
Need laughs? Here's a midget
Dave Hill and Little Michael Jackson in the year's strangest flatshare comedy. There's more episodes to come later, apparently.
Just what the world needs: MORE Stone Roses
On your radio, falling out your newspaper, causing significant delays to your coach journey out of Manchester (it's been a bad week): the Stone Roses are absobloody everywhere at the moment. Nico Tatorowicz leads Dan Renton 'Angelos Epithemiou' Skinner, Lucy Montgomery, Peter Serafinowicz and more in a spoof documentary on the definitely-not-overrated group.
PJ heads to some tiny planets
If you haven't seen PJ's videos, you're in for a treat: his meanderingly gentle adventure and sunshine-drenched soundtrack is a delicately-realised piece of flaneuring.
Comedy's longest ever promo compaign rumbles on
Midnight Beast did a live promo on telly for their Jesus How Has It Still Not Actually Started new show on E4. It is a cracking trailer but we're still wondering how effective clips like these can be pulled together into a coherent series. Only a few days to find out, I guess...
Internet comedy will eat itself
Hey YouTube comedy fans: see Chris Kendall (that's Crabstickz to you, possibly) star in a music video. It's like a deeply breezy, zero-budget highly British three-minute take on 500 Days of Summer, but instead of Zooey Deschanel's stupid haircut we have a British park and lots of internet comedy people. 'For the kids', seems a fair summary.
