I miss waking up Saturday mornings with a bowl of Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch and orange juice in my McDonald’s Hamburglar glass to watch cartoons. Smurfs was my favorite but I also loved Tom and Jerry, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Scooby Doo, and the Snorks. Curls and Red will never know the delayed gratification of waiting all week to watch these 15 minute long shows before being pushed out the door by their parents to play until the street lights came on. Now it’s Musical.ly, YouTube, and at least a tablet or videogame console to occupy their time.
I for one would still like something to look forward to at the end of a long week of working, running my kids all around town, and just handling STUFF. We all need a little happy so I compiled a list of clips that either made me laugh, cry, or both. Enjoy and have that extra donut with your coffee or tea. I won’t tell anyone.
Celeste Barber: I just recently discovered this unabashedly funny Australian comedian who spoofs celebrities. She has a following of 4.7 million on Instagram for a reason and her recent collaboration with Tom Ford had me dying:
You can find her here on Instagram along with more footage of her with Tom.
John and Hank Green: I will love the Vlogbrothers until the end of time. And what John did for Hank’s book release had me in tears:
Billy on the Street: Billy Eichner started the new season of his loud and energetic show on Youtube. Him running down the streets of New York with celebrities while screaming at passerbys always makes me cringe and laugh. The first episode is with Emma Stone but I have also attached one with Paul Rudd (who wouldn’t want to sleep with him??) and Keegan-Michael Key:
Mary Halsey and Missy Elliott: If you haven’t seen the clip of Mary Halsey covering Missy Elliott’s “Work It”, you can find it here. Then you can watch this clip of Missy surprising her on Ellen. The anticipation of watching Mary performing knowing that Missy is about to come out on stage made me feel like a kid waiting for her presents on Christmas morning.
