This thread is for recommending a YouTube selection to your fellow forumgoers. My pick of the day is:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search=fry+laurie&search_type=search_videos

A selection of exerpts from the pant-numbingly funny 'A Bit Of Fry And Laurie', possibly the most mind-wettingly hilarious sketch show ever seen on TV. Whatever you do, don't miss 'Mystery' by Hugh Laurie. I just spent 18 years trying to find this song, only to discover both the episode mp3 and the youtube video within a fortnight of each other!

Edit: Oh, and don't bother with the fan-made clips-set-to-music compilations, they're rubbish.

fry and laurie are indeed hilarious. i especially like the sketch where the dad tells his son that he is the chosen one and describes a fountain pen as Punak The Destroyer.

i found this franz ferdinand video on youtube. is very funny...

Check out Foo Fighters' video for Everlong. Best song ever and quality video.

Ooh and the fantastically random cover of Stairway to Heaven

Diziet was bold enough to comment:

This is what I've been told, though I've not had chance to try it:

downloader:
http://javimoya.com/blog/youtube_en.php

and there's some sort of converter available free here:
http://www.softpedia.com/
which will convert the Youtube files into mpegs.

Let us know if you have any luck!

This was filmed on location in NYC

I have always wanted this guitar what Ginger is playing.
The last time he had it was performing this song on TOTP and it was nicked from the dressing room.
Rumour has it that is was a member of OASIS as they was in the next dressing room on the TOTP show and there was a well publicised scrap between the Cocky one and Ginger.

The Band : The Wildhearts
The Song: I Wanna Go Where The People Go

Enjoy

If anyone can interperate the letters on Gingers guitar in the above wildhearts clip they shall receive a special one off prize from me.

I need all the letters and what when put together the letters pronounce.


Good luck

Amazing human beatbox vid. Well, amazing if you're impressed by that sort of thing. I imagine my grandparents probably wouldn't like it, and nor would Jeremy Paxman.

Now that might be an amateur sketch, but I'm convinced! Mind you, it could be a crack head...
