So one of the occasional features on the Fine Bros Entertainment YouTube channel that we liked was when they showed them videos and told them to try not to smile or laugh. Whoever made it through all the videos was a winner. Some of the clips they show make it really hard, with looping fails or slow motion.
With their newer channel, just called React, they have turned this into a far more frequent thing, up to 24 episodes now where all it is is these challenges. It also opened it up to being not just one group (Teens, Elders, Kids, Adults, YouTubers…) doing the challenge, but instead a mix.
I just looked and saw we haven’t really mentioned this on the blog, even though we watch all of these when they’re posted! Often the videos themselves we can resist laughing at, but the reactors – when they laugh, and then catch themselves laughing and realize they’re out – we end up laughing at or with. In other words, we’re not very good at this at all.
So here’s the playlist, currently 24 challenges. Enjoy!
So just glancing at the tags on the site, we haven’t talked about Panic! at the Disco before! They’re a band we really like, despite the fact that they’ve been tagged with terms like “emo.” I’m still not sure I understand what emo means, so I just ignore that – and listen to Panic!
One of the things I really like about Panic! is how their albums feel like a complete whole, like a performance. Complete with introductions, musical interludes, and a finale. Since I tend to like the whole albums, I hadn’t really looked for a music video from them – I’d just gotten the new album…
Their new album, Death of a Bachelor, is pretty great. We found out there was this music video from watching this episode of Teens React. Wow, okay, that’s a video… Then they went back, ironically, to another wedding: their first hit single. Of course, what I have to say is they missed another great video:
It was interesting to find out, though, that the band is down to just the lead singer (can you call it a band then?) I actually saw them live years ago, and it was fun because it was a large band. I mean, they had a lead cello. Just a lot of musicians. To be down to one man left standing is too bad. But hey, he’s keeping the music coming.
We have been enjoying Good Mythical Morning with Rhett and Link lately. It’s daily. It’s ridiculous. It’s fun. It’s occasionally painful to watch…
They’ve had a fun couple of days for Christmas.
Yesterday they had some of our old SourceFed favorites on! And weren’t as ridiculous as they could have been…
However, the one for Christmas itself… Will it Eggnog?
Turns out most things will not Eggnog. Yikes.
It’s about time to see if the Geek Baby wants to open some presents – Merry Christmas!
A couple of weeks ago I talked about how the YouTube review shows were starting to hit Avengers: Age of Ultron. Well, we watched the one from Honest Trailers and… yep. That kind of sums it up.
What do you think? Too harsh? Or was it inevitably an impossible movie to make everyone happy and do everything? And did they break Joss Whedon? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
