Sadly, it doesn't speed the videos up.

The Benny Hillifier. We all know that Yakety Sax makes everything funny, right? Now you can try it out for yourself with any YouTube video. I'll get things started with some violet action, an old favorite bizzarre cat video, and something special that everyone can appreciate.

I have no idea what I'm looking at here ... but it works!

I do apologize, that first one was violent action. For those of you wanting violet action, check this one out.

I won't buy clothes from Benny Hillifier because he said something mean on Oprah about black people.

Yeah! Try it with the Omaha Beach sequence of Saving Private Ryan!

Here is how to dance to it.

The original is just as good (but you have to watch the entire thing).

Oh my god, that cat video made me laugh until I cried. This is brilliant. Someone should write a research paper on why Yackity Sax makes everything funnier.

Nope, Stuck in the Middle With You still works better. Tarentino's status as genius is intact.

My personal fave for Benny Hill funny music is not Yakety Sax but that skiffle song they would play in the skits where he played a tramp, lying on a park bench and daydreaming about scoring with beautiful women. It's been 20 years since I've heard it but it cracks me up thinking about it. Wonder if someone can get a hold of that one.

If I don't get cremated. I wouldn't mind being buried whilst Yakkity Sax played. All this made even funnier is when the straps holding my coffin breaks cause I weigh close to 300 pounds now. Heh heh (cough!)

Great site!

It appears to be borked at the moment, though. It's not taking anything beyond "http://www.y"

I don't know if the Charleston goes better with Yakety Sax or with Daft Punk, but I do know it's awesome.

I played Yakety Sax while we were raiding Naxx-10 in World of Warcraft earlier this week. It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
