The Funniest Kyle Mooney Youtube Videos: This guy will save SNL

Kyle Mooney: The guy who will save SNL

Every year people complain about Saturday Night Live. They say things like, it was waay funnier before! This sucks! All the funniest people have left! I’m gonna go work out!

I’m actually excited about SNL this year because they’ve added a guy named Kyle Mooney. His debut last weekend was hilarious and afterwards I went on Youtube to look for more of his work. I realised later that my friend Levi had shown me some of his videos last year.

This is a little outside the realm of what I normally post but this guy is breaking new ground creatively. GQ recently wrote about him, posting their favourite Youtube clips, but they totally missed his funniest work! So here’s my list:

 

“The Funniest Kyle Mooney Youtube Videos”

 

“Voices” 

One of Kyle’s characters is a comedian named Bruce Chandling, this is the character that he got to debut on SNL last weekend. In this clip Bruce does some incredible voiceover work. In my opinion, this is one of the funniest videos on the Internet.

 

See the rest below!

“Reptiles”

Kyle often does field reporting at random events. Here he is at a reptile tradeshow. “Let’s talk to the people to see if they’re real the best creatures for reptiles in this year.”

 

 


“420 Disaster”

This clip features a dude at a concert super ready to smoke a joint. This was also on GQ’s list. “Pass that here, dude”.

 

 

“Sporty”

This was the first Kyle Mooney video I watched, a year or so ago. It features a guy who is really passionate about sports. The end of this video makes me laugh every time.

 

 

“Roomies”

“THIS PLACE WAS GONNA BE SICK!!!!” This also on GQ’s list, so they got 2 right.

  • When was the first slime for some of these guys?

  • Jeff – I can’t agree with you more, I’ve been watching Kyle for at least a year now and he never ceases to amaze. Dude is insanely brilliant. Cheers to posting about him.

    • i want nothing more than for him to succeed, if this even helps in some small way. i can’t believe some of his videos have so few views

  • dockhands

    I just came to this realization this morning while watching SNL. I couldn’t believe it! I was so pumped to see him. I’m super happy for him. He’s easily my favourite YouTube “stars”

    though… I feel like his humour was lost on the audience… maybe it’ll take time…

    • it’ll definitely take awhile but hopefully with people like Louis CK championing him it won’t take toooo long

  • Ben

    You can’t talk about Kyle without mentioning Beck Bennett (now best known for his roundtable interviews with kids for AT&T). Beck just joined SNL, too. He and Kyle have been doing sketch stuff together for years: http://www.youtube.com/user/GoodNeighborStuff

  • Moorea Hum

    be sure to see Kyle in Lakers Champions vid!

  • Roland Cos

    where could a european guy watch this SNL clip you’re talking about?

  • dexter

    My roommate has been on to the goodneighbor videos for a while I was stoked to tell him 2 of them finally made it to snl, they totally deserve it they are geniuses.

  • not sure, maybe torrent it?

  • K.c. Brown

    He will save SNL for sure, but they are taking their sweet time with Kyle and Beck. You barely see these guys, some bomb ass.

  • the ice cream skit on this weekend’s SNL was hilarious and also coincidentally it was the only funny part

  • A couple more videos from Kyle can be seen at: http://stonerschematics.com/2014/02/07/kyle-mooney/

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
