My Mom’s Strange Youtube History

My mom works from home. When she doesn’t want to be bothered, she closes the door to her “office” and we are ABSOLUTELY NOT supposed to disturb her. I always just assumed she needed to be in a work zen mode. I didn’t question anything.

The other day, I brought in the mail. I knocked on her door as a warning before I entered, as I always do. Maybe I imagined it, but I was pretty sure she was watching a Harlem Shake video. Not any Harlem Shake video, but a Harlem Shake video of dogs. Before I could process anything, she turned and snapped “I’M WORKING!” before I ran out.

I was pretty sure the video was this one:

Within moments, I knew I had a mission. I needed to see my mom’s youtube video history.


Getting on her computer was actually really easy… so to be honest my mission only took about five minutes. When she was finished with her work (the door was now opened), I asked my mom if I could check my email on her computer. Not questioning the fact why I had to check on her computer, when there are seriously 3 other computers within a five foot radius, she obliged. I took my screen captures, sent them to myself through her email, and ran to my own computer to look at the evidence.


These were the first four:

I knew she watched that one Harlem Shake Video!

I KNEW IT WAS THE HARLEM SHAKE WITH ANIMALS. Wait… I started to process everything… What is my mom watching? I only was able to get a list of her last 21 videos, so the sampling may be a little small. STILL, I did find some interesting results:

  • 7 out of 21 videos were Harlem Shake videos.
  • 7 out of 21 videos were about animals, mostly dogs and cats, but there was one video starring a hamster.
  • 4 videos were Harlem Shake videos FEATURING animals.
  • 2 videos were on strange medical conditions.
  • 1 was a video aimed at children so that they learn about the colors of the rainbows:


Oh and the last one was…

I don’t even know to interpret the data, except to say, that there’s a little more going on behind closed doors than I thought.

For your enjoyment please find below the remaining videos of the list:

Cool Video of the Day: I Fell in Love on the Bike Path!

At my alma mater, U.C. Santa Barbara, bicycles RULED the road.

If you are a pedestrian there, you better know your place, because if you were dumb enough to step into the bike path without looking, you deserved to get run over by the two-wheelers (the unsuspecting tour groups made this fun to watch).  If you were a car driving down Del Playa (the main party street) on a Friday or Saturday night, expect a crowd to surround your car, shouting things to you like “GET OFF THE ROAD” and “WHAT ARE YOU DOING DRIVING HERE?” and “I’M DRUNK!”  It’s like Mad Max in that town – I’m serious.

Well anyway, from my alma mater comes the above hilarious video, in the vein of I’m on a Boat, about finding love on the bike path.  SO GOOD.

The Mullet Mating Call: Mullet-ed Man knows how to Whistle in Old Talk Show

Some of you may know that I am an aspiring screenwriter…  and through this I’ve gotten interesting insights into my psyche.  I’ve noticed that my “villains” fall into three categories:

  1. Fat women with large breasts.
  2. People with mullets and unusual facial hair/hobbies.
  3. Fat people with mullets.

My last script had THREE obese antagonists with large breasts.  My current one has two guys with mullets and I’m on only on page seven.  Granted, this is before the editing process, but still… I think there’s something wrong with me.

Well, a dashing young facebook fan shared this on the HAHABUDA facebook page…  And I must admit this may have changed my views of mullets forever.

I never thought a man with a mullet could bring a tear to my eye out of wondrous amazement…  The beauty in the quivering of that mustache is all too much.  So world, I ask you for two things, bring back the mullet… bring back artistic whistling…Sigh…The Mullet Mating Call…

I really need to watch more daytime television…

SIDE NOTE #1:  LIKE HAHABUDA on FACEBOOK – There will be a giveaway pretty soon…  And I put some other content over there not found here.

SIDE NOTE #2:  Best line of that video – “There goes the balls again….”

Cool Video of the Day: Zombie in a Penguin Suit

T-Minus 7 seven days until my favorite Holiday and to celebrate I’ll do a Halloween-y post a day til then!

Today, I will showcase everyone’s favorite “monster” this year: the Zombie (tangent: are zombies considered monsters?  what classification would you even put it under?). The short video “Zombie in a Penguin Suit” is a surprisingly funny, yet touching depiction of the brain-eating undead.

As a warning, probably not the best video for young children or the faint of heart or young children with faint hearts.  Enjoy!

I was feeling for a while that Zombies were on the decline, and those of you who watch The Walking Dead know what I mean.  It’s nice to get a bit of freshness back into a genre based on the unfresh through this video.

The people who created “zombie in a penguin suit” also have a facebook page up, where they will respond to whatever you post.  Support them and check it out HERE.

Cute video of the day: Batman and Pugs unite!

In America, people hear dogs’ barks as “woof” “arf” or “ruff”.  In Croatia, it’s “Vau Vau”.  In Indonesia, it’s “Guk Guk.”  But on Youtube, there’s a Pug that says “Batman.”

After the jump, my other favorite pug videos: Continue reading

Impy’s Wonderland – When “Sex Bomb” by Tom Jones ends up in a kid’s movie

When I saw the above image as the chosen icon for a movie on Netflix, I knew I had to see this movie.  Usually I’m not one to watch children movies on aspiring dinosaurs performers and their journey to Hollywood, but for this one I made an exception.

Then I saw the reviews for Impy’s Wonderland.  Let me show you exactly what I am talking about:

Any time a children’s movie has a character singing “Sex Bomb”, lyrics unchanged, I have issues. It displays an obvious lack of discretion and abundance of stupidity on the part of the production team… for that reason alone this gets the lowest rating.

Then this one:

**********WARNING WARNING WARNING************ This “children’s movie” includes the Tom Jones song “Sex Bomb” for no apparent reason. Also as an accompaniment to the song… as it starts, two cannons each shoot out a load of glitter. I don’t know what other inappropriate content this “movie made by morons” will show, as we shut it off. I wish they would GET RID OF THIS MOVIE… PLEASE.

The scene takes place 40 minutes into the movie, and is the only thing that makes the movie worth it.  Those crazy Germans, always putting obviously adult song into their movies aimed at kids aged 5-10.  Watch the sex bomb scene below:  Impy’s Wonderland (Urmel voll in Fahrt in German)

Sexbomb sexbomb you’re a sexbomb
You can give it to me when I need to come along
Sexbomb sexbomb you’re my sexbomb
And baby you can turn me on turn me on darlin’
Sexbomb sexbomb you’re my sexbomb sexbomb
You can give it to me when I need to come along
Sexbomb sexbomb your’re my sexbomb
And baby you can turn me on

Funny Video of the Day: Goth Kids dancing to Vogue

I’ve been on a little bit of a Madonna kick lately.  I can’t really explain it, but if it’s 7am and I’m driving to work, Madonna better freakin’ be on the radio.  So I’m generally not a fan of some youtube video’s sound being replaced by a popular song, but this is THE exception of all exceptions.  Madonna? yes.  Goth Kids? hell yes.  Goth kids dancing to Madonna? YES YES YES.  Check it out.
