Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Sep 5, 2020/ 9.43 min

This didn’t age well at all.

Soon after the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally held in South Dakota took place, a study concluded it may have caused more than 250,000 new coronavirus cases.

Looking at the video you can really see how that isn’t a distant possibility.

Those numbers are non-consensual though and a recent report published by Jennifer Dowd, deputy director of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at the University of Oxford, says the 250,000 estimate is at best an “absolute worst-case scenario number,” and the actual number of infections may have been far lower.

Doesn’t get any better than Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon’s impressions, from Bond to Brando, with Michael Caine and Sean Connery in between.

These excerpts were taken out from the first 2 movies: The Trip, a feature film edited from the original 2010 sitcom and The Trip to Italy, the first in a series of three abroad.

Robot Chicken has done by far, in our opinion, the best Star Wars spoofs yet.

We know that the statement above is a bold one, especially since everyone and their dog has already done some sort of parody of Star Wars at some point in time.

What’s absolutely remarkable about a great deal of them is that they are lovingly made by their creators (many Star Wars fans themselves).

So it’s not about not tearing it down but to give a funny twist to a beloved franchise (though, in most cases, the focus is naturally on the original trilogy and not so much in the more recent movies).

When the face is a prune, then action goes BOOM!

Not the hero we need but the hero we deserve.

In case you have no idea who Prune Face is, here’s a little backstory, according to starwars.fandom.com:

In 1984, after this action figure came out, it was labeled “Prune Face,” the only name the character had until Pablo Hidalgo dubbed him Orrimaarko in Galaxy Guide 12: Aliens — Enemies and Allies a Star Wars Legends sourcebook by West End Games released in 1995.

Orrimaarko first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Hoaxes and conspiracy theories have been plentiful since the pandemic began in March, with some online groups and websites claiming there is no virus or that 5G networks somehow cause the illness.

It never ceases to amaze us how people are happy to believe any nonsense they hear, especially online. Even though, as John Oliver pointed out, conspiracy theories have long been around and their appeal is undeniable.

Still, one would expect people would fall for elaborate theories, with plenty of evidence to back it up. Instead it’s always the most idiotic concepts possible.

George Carlin – Saving the Planet

In times of the Covid19 pandemic, that is ravaging every country throughout the world, nobody better than George Carlin to put things into perspective.

This clip is taken from his “Jammin’ In New York” (1992) special, as he finishes his performance with a ruthless blow to self-centered environmentalists by attacking their true motivations to save the planet while (and I don’t think most people realize this) agreeing with their main premise in a grim, ferociously honest way. “The planet is fine. The people are fucked.”

It’s not so much about saving the planet that most are concerned about but saving themselves instead.

Most accurate depiction of what’s the comment section anywhere online.

This clip was taken from, What Do We Do in the Shadows (an American mockumentary comedy horror television series created by Jemaine Clement that premiered March 27, 2019, on FX. Based on the 2014 film of the same name written by Clement and Taika Waititi, the series follows four vampire roommates in Staten Island).

In case you’re not familiar with the show’s characters, Colin Robinson is a energy vampire. Don’t know what’s an energy vampire? See the clip below:

Bolsonaro’s tribute to Covid victims

Never has the expression “stranger than fiction” made more sense than when the president of the Brazilian Tourism Board went live on Facebook, with Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro, to play Ave Maria on the accordion in honor of Covid19’s victims.

Bolsonaro has been a covidiot since the very beginning of the pandemic, so at this point it’s hard to be surprised by anything he does or says.

So, we thought!

This time, Bolsonaro had his Tourism Board President show up to play the accordion (very poorly) and then leave without saying one word. It was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen.

I mean, it would be weird enough if it was just some random guy doing this on YouTube but this is the president of a country?!

How low can this guy go, is the only question at this point.

The amount of cringe in this video is surreal.

Palm Beach County residents warn of satanism, death & pedophilia as they spoke against the mandatory use of masks.

(Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of requiring face masks to be worn inside public buildings to help prevent the spread of Covid19.)

After watching this we don’t know if we wanna laugh (this seems like something straight out from the show “Parks and Recreation”), cry or feel scared for the mental health of these folks.

After Donald Trump’s first campaign rally since the Covid19 pandemic took hold in the USA,  it’s definitely worth revisiting this video.

What can be funnier (and scarier at the same time) than Jordan Klepper’s compilation of greatest hits at a Trump rally? Not much we reckon.

We can’t fail to notice an alarming similarity between this video and a Coronavirus Lockdown Protest we’ve posted recently though.

Anyway, with the new election coming up in the U.S we guess it’s safe to assume there will be plenty more of these sorts of videos shortly, to keep us all entertained  (or not, in case social distancing rules are still in effect until then).
