This week we're watching 'Groundhog Day' on repeat, delighting in some Déjà vu & voluntarily depriving our senses.
Every week I'll be here to reveal and review some of my favorite moments from the internet. Whether it be binge-ing television shows, streaming sports or simply getting lost in a YouTube rabbit hole, I'm here to give you my top picks every Friday, as well as the perfect pairing to get into an optimal headspace for them.
This week, we're taking a look at some great sketches on YouTube, depriving ourselves of our senses and getting hyped for some new shit to watch.
Getting the Omnipotent Blues
Recommended Pairing: Another glass of the same thing you always drink, forever.
Bill Murray fucking rules. Not that it's a controversial point of view or anything, it's just that occssionally when we're all feeling horrible about everything going on in the world it's helpful to remind yourself that you live on the same planet as the guy from Caddyshack and Rushmore.
As I was setting up to watch Groundhog Day on Groundhog day for the 10th year in a row, I came across this little gem:
A solid take on the "repeating a day" premise from the original executed splendidly. Nice work. Fast-forward to an hour later and I've devoured their entire catalog. Nothing groundbreaking, but a genuinely impressive catalog of sketches and comedy shorts.
I realized I had seen this one a while back and thought to myself, I wonder if these guys do other stuff. Then, in a very internet age way just sort of never thought about it again.
That probably explains how the two videos have a combined total of almost TWO MILLION views, but under 22,000 subscribers. I look forward to their next video and pray it can help overcome the feeling of dread we feel when the groundhog prognosticates nuclear winter.
