"I'm glad I wore these pants." (QT(5.3 MB) or MPEG-1) Nintendo Cartoon Hour, a funny mashup of NES footage with voiceover. The Lonely Island, three guys from LA straight from the "Revenge of the Nerds" comedy school.

Heh. Good stuff. They should have their own show on Adult Swim.

It's funny though howthe aerobics instructor was super tall compared to all the other characters... they probably didn't intend to showcase a woman giant, but that's what happened.

Everyone should check out the rest of their site. It has all the AS quirkiness, and Brooke Shields makes a slightly funny cameo.

The White Power episode is pretty funny.

Apparently, they have signed up to do a sketch-comedy series for Fox.

the other stuff from the lonely island is frickin' GENIUS. they somehow managed to get the girl who plays Dr. Eliot in the Scrubs for some of their episodes.

A+++++ Fast Shipping. Would deal with anytime!

Their series The 'Bu on channel101 has taken on a life of it's own. It's hard to appreciate the latest episodes without being there since the beginning. Start with the first episode and realize that these things sometimes took months in between them.

"We do not serve ninjas" from Episode 2 of The 'Bu made my day.

Ok, they didn't do the 'Bu that month. Crap.

I'm going to go ahead and make the claim that halfway through the first 'Bu episode, all of humanity's art culminated in one fantastic explosion of someone pointing a teacup at me.
