Funniest Video Ever. Can't Stop Laughing. Foreigners. Talk Show.

You know those situations where you're not supposed to laugh but you can't control yourself? My worst situation like this was in 7th grade when my friend Flare was playing the violin with some of the other no talent violin playing students. There's nothing funnier than kids mangling the violin and you're supposed to sit quietly and pretend that it sounds good. "Are they supposed to be playing the same thing?"

I'm surprised that nothing burst that day. I'm not kidding you. It's that feeling of holding the laughter in. It just kills you. It's like the episode of Seinfeld when Jerry puts the Tweety Bird Pez on Elaine's lap.

Here's a clip I found on the Youtube of a foreign talk show. Probably Russia or Croatia. Who knows. The minute the guest starts talking with his high voice, the talk show host just loses it and he tries to hold in his laughter throughout the interview. Just look at the interviewer as he attempts to compose himself.

This video is pure gold. Pure gold I tells ya!

And that's why I could never be a host of a show or a judge of something... controlling my laughter is not a strong point of mine.

That is terrible! Horrible! Why can't that man control his horrendous 'just kicked in the balls' voice. What makes it crazy funny is that you know it's a very sad story. Tears, wheelchair, lady with bad hair, MAN with really bad bangs and hair = really sad show.

I once saw a TV weather girl lose it like that on the news. It was so great.

And there is no way to keep a straight face through musical trainwrecks. The best is when instruments forget to transpose and end up playing in different keys. That happened to a brass choir at my church on Christmas Eve. My brother and I still are recovering.

I was at a 'theater in the round' production of 'A Man for All Seasons' where the audience chairs were right on stage and actors were in touching distance. Henry VIII was in the middle of this tense speech and his velvet pantaloons just fell down and drifted to the floor. It would have been bad enough from a distance, but His Majesty's joctstrap and tights were RIGHT IN MY FACE because I was in the front row.
I think I strained muscles trying not to laugh. If the actor hadn't been my friend I would have left and not come back.

Son of a Thomas said...

If I have the story right. The show was about human trageties and the dude lost his balls. Hence the voice.

Susan said...

I came up with same title as Son of Thomas. They're probably discussing how to maintain coital relationships when your husband has no testes. Or penis. Or nads. Nuts. You know.

Sara said...

I needed a laugh today, and this made my afternoon! Thanks for another great video link!

Mella said...

I think I just fucking died.

Amy Kate said...

Where the hell did you even find this?? (Imagine me saying that in a VERY high pitched voice)

Holy shit. I love it.

By the by...I lurk. I sometimes comment, but mostly lurk. I stand back, in awe of your legion of loyal fans. I have 3 - two friends and a sister. So I get a little bitter, too.

Also, I saw the Artie Lange book at the library, but live in a tiny town and sometimes don't take out certain materials lest people think ...well, not think "less" of me, but you know, form opinions at all of me.

Mr. High Voice was all "What are you laughing at?" like he didn't know the interviewer was thinking, "Did you lose your balls at the same time your woman lost the use of her legs?"

Giggle Pixie said...

OMG, I laughed so hard at this! Thanks, I needed that today.

diane said...

I can't believe anything could be so funny and sad at the same time. Lots of guilty laughing going on here.

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - instead of saying, "I can't believe anything could be so funny and sad at the same time.." I prefer the line,

"How can something so wrong feel so right?"

ÄsK AliCë said...

Wow, I needed that. How COULD you keep a straight face with Dickless McNoBalls talking the whole time??

Jennifer and Sandi said...

I think the lady with the orange shirt is funny. Maybe that's who he was laughing at? Or, maybe not!

Happy Wednesday

- Jennifer

~E said...

Oh my lord. I would kill to know what they were talking about, because it would be that much funnier if they were discussing how the dude has cancer or something and the only thing the host can do is bust a gut.

Dr Zibbs said...

~E - I bet the conversation was about a car accident. Or some other hysterical thing like that.

And on a side note, there is one other guy in the crowd trying not to laugh. He's sitting behind the high talker.

jadedj said...

Jesus this is sick. LMAO. Yes, I noticed the guy in the crowd also...made me laugh even harder. I hate myself for this.

Bizarro said...

Psst . . . your age is showing. It's Youtube, not THE Youtube, for chrissakes!

miss amy said...

LMAO!

Michelle said...

That is freaking hilarious Dr Z!

I mean hilarious in a sort of demented way. Sad yet hilarious!!!

HAPPY DAY!!!

Cora said...

That happened to me in the dentist's office. They were trying to take x-rays and the film just was not fitting right in my mouth and she said to me "open wider, it's really stiff" and I lost it. I was crying-laughing and I couldn't stop. She was just staring at me like I was insane. Stupid filthy mind of mine! It's always getting me in trouble!

There's a version with subtitles out there somewhere.

Anonymous said...

This is the funniest video ever! After watching the one without subtitles you have to watch the version with subtitles and explanation. I guarantee your laugh to be 10x louder! Here you go:

I have seen this before, don't know where, but..I was reading another blog which linked this video, and it pointed directly to the Yak.
