In this Friday’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category.
Trending this week on social are funny clips from staples Conan O’Brien (2x) and Jimmy Fallon, and a special one-man show from Bryan Cranston. For more on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:
This week, we bring you some of the funniest TV clips the Internet has to offer. With Ellen back in the picture, Conan and Jimmy on their game as usual, and Bryan Cranston making a special appearance courtesy of TBS, humor proved to be the key component in huge views and achieving social success.
Conan earned two slots in this week’s lineup. First, a never-before-seen SNL skit with a spot-on impersonation of Aziz Ansari played by Nasim Pedrad, and second, another edition of ‘Coffee Table Books That Didn’t Sell,’ which proved to be funnier than we could’ve anticipated.
Fallon nailed another lip sync battle, this time with Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton (sorry Jimmy, it’s safe to say you lost this one). Ellen has returned with haste, and in her first edition of ‘In-Your-Ear’ this season, she hilariously dictates an audience member disguised as a Dunkin’ Donuts cashier in LA. The ‘broken telephone’ phenomena proved to make the bit even better than usual.
Finally, TBS and Bryan Cranston teamed up to create a one-man MLB show that we wish was actually on broadway…Kind of. Extremely well done nonetheless, it’s always a pleasure seeing Walter White in a more comedic role, proving he does indeed have mad acting skills. Standing-O good sir, we’re eagerly awaiting your next project.
