Yes, online productions with million dollar budgets have been done before, but the sad truth is, money can’t buy funny. This time around, however, Jerry Zucker (the man behind “Airplane” and “Naked Gun”) is in charge of production.
Can you say “LOL”?
Since last year National Banana has been producing quality online shorts. In fact, some many have reached millions of views through video portals like YouTube. With such huge funding, their site is very simple and contains virtually no advertisements.
This is a short list of some of their most popular videos. You’ve probably stumbled across at least one of these videos without even realizing it was from National Banana.
- Sands of Passion (web series)
- General Elevator (web series)
- Role Models
- Special Presidential Address
- State of The Union
- Bin Laden Speaks
Bin Laden Speaks
This is the first “Bin Laden Speaks” short. I know what you’re thinking, “How can a Bin Laden tape be funny?” It’s simple really, just replace the subtitles with some funny messages and you’ve got comedy gold. It’s a brilliant concept and I guarantee you’ll be laughing when he talks about his dating problems.
