Even though last night’s Oscars was all about celebrating the silver screen, YouTube ended up a winner too when seven of the platform’s most classic viral videos were given the Hollywood treatment during Jimmy Kimmel’s ninth annual “After the Oscars” special.
Kimmel’s soon-to-be viral videos of viral-videos-reimagined-as-big-budget-movies feature an extravagant A-list lineup dramatically reinterpreting meme milestones “Sweet Brown — Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That,” “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” “Double Rainbow,” “Charlie Bit My Finger,” “Dramatic Chipmunk,” and “Hamster on a Piano” — all in the span of four hilarious “movie trailers.”
Overall, Jimmy Kimmel is decidedly not annoying in his latest round of viral videos — in fact, I’d say he’s just slightly eclipsed Jimmy Fallon in the ongoing late night viral video race with these masterpieces. But what the hell do I know — you decide:
“Bitman Begins” stars Hemsworth brothers Liam and Chris, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. The two brothers are engaged in a deadly sibling rivalry, and it’s eventually revealed why …
With Kevin Spacey, Gary Oldman, Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, Mandy Patinkin, Abbie Cornish, and a surprise guest at the end. “Ameowdeus” features some of these people in animal costumes — guess what they’re spoofing.
“Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That”
This trailer stars a game Queen “U.N.I.T.Y.” Latifah as the titular Sweet Brown. Other stars include Barkhad Abdi, Adam Driver and Matt Damon. I won’t ruin the ending for you (stop guessing).
“David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God!” in 3D
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays David in a trippy musical adventure with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson and Seth Rogen. I ate a cake pop once that also had me starring in this same movie … or wait, maybe I’m still in the movie? What’s an N…M…R?
