While toying with some concept ideas behind MY version of putting a Youtube show to the monitors, I decided to start doing a bit of looking around at “previous examples” out there in The Internets.

One thing I’ve always enjoyed out there in terms of “funny video clips” is the concept of the altered movie trailer. This was originally started as an art college project that’s caught on as a hobby to the internet video savvy.

By altering an existing movie trailer, either with different narration or music, one can change the whole feel of what the actual movie is about, and that’s kind of a feel I’m aiming for with the “show” once I get some filming under my belt.

Some of these trailers are funny, some are downright scary.

Here are some examples:

Sleepless in Seattle as a thriller

(the) shining as a heartwarming family drama (my current favorite)

West Side Story as a zombie movie

and even more to be found here.



Dave is not a big Justin Timberlake fan (which explains his distress to the fact that we’re going to the concert next month), but he LOVED LOVED LOVED the skit JT did with Jimmy Fallon on SNL – The Barry Gibb Talk Show.

Justin is hosting this weekend, and rumor is that they’re bringing the sexy back … the beautiful gold medallions…

For those of you who missed the original skit, here it is in all youtube glory:

This is the one from Cameron Diaz’s aka Anne Coulter hosting gig.  I love that Bill Richardson, I mean Horatio Sanz, loses his cool.

And, the original inspiration!!!  Check out those pants!  These guys were awesome!
