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.

Véronique Meignaud

Patterns by Veronique Meignaud

I like these animated patterns by illustrator Véronique Meignaud, whom I’ve posted about several times now (most recently here). There’s a certain naivety here that I find really interesting, like she’s trying something new without anyone telling her how you’re supposed to do it. Watch below!

MGMT “Cool Song No. 2″ Music Video

MGMT Cool Song No. 2 music video

Despite being completely underwhelming, MGMT’s latest album has already produced two great music videos. The latest one, directed by Isaiah Seret, stars Michael K. Williams (he will always be Omar from ‘The Wire’ as far as I’m concerned) and Dennis Hopper’s son, Henry.

The song is whatever but the visuals, my god. Hats off to the DP, Bradford Young, this is a stunner. Watch “Cool Song No. 2″ (a song title that actually makes me cringe) below!
