There’s been a lot talk lately about comedy and the controversial things that should and shouldn’t be said. I say, let’s bring it back to the funny and let the unfunny and shocking fade into obscurity with this week’s 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week.

1. Ryan O’Flanagan has an important message about being a victim. Well, he’s trying to have one.

2. Shut Up! Cartoons latest web series Nature Break gives a glimpse into the lives of animals as we’ve never seen them before: ordering pizza and chatting with neighbors.

3. Nathan Barnatt’s viral dancing videos got him on the cover of LA Weekly, which he told several people about in person.

4. Submitted by sketch group Uncle Mom, there is a new definition of what e “supportive boyfriend.”

5. The cleverly edited conversation between a 12 and 32 year old did indeed go viral, which, it turns out is a watered-down parody of this more PG-13 rated “original” with Elisha Yaffe.

Having your suspicions fulfilled in being disappointed by Snow White and the Huntsman and can’t get over the fact that Kristen Stewart has a constant look of teenage angst seemingly permanently fixed on her face? Well, whether it’s that incredibly specific problem or one of a billion others, The 5 Most Intentionally Videos This Week are here with the funniest videos on the web made intentionally for laughs by some of the funniest people on the web to make you forget that for about 20 minutes or so. (That’s approximately the collective running time of the 5 videos — after that, I can’t help you forget that you watched Snow White and the Huntsman and did so alone)

Enjoy!

1. Two sign spinners (the hilarious Ron Babcock and Andre Hyland) battling each other gets a little intense than you might suspect in OFF’s new music video for “Cracked.”

2. Eric Andre suspected that he might not be perfectly comfortable when appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. So, he took care of that suspicion right off the bat.

3. Clever Pie and Isabel Fay come up with a great way to think of the people that hate whatever you do on the Internet with their song and music video Thank You Hater.

4. The best parody of Prometheus yet, mostly because it’s a near perfect shot for shot parody, is the one that The Soup did with Joel McHale, their android(?) clip show host.

5. If you haven’t seen Pete Holmes as Batman in the spoofs he does on College Humor with Front Page Films, prepare to be amazed, then laugh, per usual, because Pete Holmes is hilarious nearly all the time.

It seems that there was a significant number of Coachella attendees that were afflicted with confusion by the performance of a hologram Tupac. Not that we can really do anything about that here at Nerdist other than to tell you that it was a hologram; It’s this type of confusion we try to avoid with the comedy videos posted on this list. There’s no wondering whether someone is really having a nervous breakdown or if the puppies were kidnapped. Everything on the 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week was meant to be funny without relying on fake holograms.

Enjoy.

1. Maria Thayer (Eagleheart) tries to audition for shows that the producers don’t agree on in Pilot Season.

2. What Jim Gaffigan has to say on photography…

3. What’s What Monty meets the Onision banana in an awesome web comedy crossover.

4. My Damn Channel Live’s interviews often switch from interviews to interventions (not to worry, they’re fun ones)

5. Kurt Braunohler’s shenanigans fueled game show, Bunk, plays “Shame That Puppy”.

I’m still taking submissions for 5 MIFV. Same rules still apply.

Today, the Internet is passing around this clip of Kristen Bell having a near meltdown over a sloth on the Ellen Degeneres Show, which is exactly the type of unintentionally funny viral clips that we’re up against here. You didn’t know that there was a war between intentionally funny and unintentionally funny, did you? Well, welcome to the front line, and you’d better be prepared to laugh at things that were produced specifically to make people laugh.

1. Channel 101 program Intimate Indiscretions gives you a look into the sexy annals of American History (NSFW) that also involve time travel and lasers.

2. Whatever you think of Bobcat Goldthwait’s stand-up, there is no denying he is a dark comedy genius with his films. Just watch the red-band trailer for his latest film, God Bless America.

3. Every once in a while, there are interview segments with people who aren’t comedians that make people think, “They need to do comedy in some way or another.” Stephen Colbert’s interview with author Maurice Sendak on The Colbert Report is such an interview.

4. Here’s a very funny music video with a bunch of really funny people (Alia Shawkat, Maria Thayer, Kurt Braunohler, Gabe Delahaye, and more) that ISN’T directed by Tom Scharpling: Hospitality’s “Friends of Friends”, directed by Scott Jacobson.

5. Jon Stewart proves that goofy chases and obviously fake wigs are still a solid combo for comedy.
