Among the pantheon of notable public television personalities, Bob Ross easily ranks alongside the likes of Mr. Rogers and Elmo as a star who is almost universally loved and respected by the public. Despite being famous the world over for his balmy, soothing demeanor, his show The Joy of Painting, and his amazing ‘fro, we know surprisingly little about arguably one of the best known artists in modern times.

SNL Quick-Change Make-up Transition

On March 11th, 2017, the SNL make-up team had only one commercial break to get Kate McKinnon out of her Jeff Sessions character and into her “Shud the Mermaid” character. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at that transition.

Zoo Pornographer

Saturday Night Live skit where morning show anchors (played by Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan, and Scarlett Johansson) misrepresent an animal photographer (Mikey Day) on-air.

Legendary drunk Ollie let us know what he thought of women’s liberation. Shelly strongly disagreed, wetly.

In a 1969 episode of Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, Campbell ended the concert section of his show with the guitar adaptation of Boots Randolph‘s song “Yakety Sax,” aka the Benny Hill Show theme song. Campbell impressively shredded the song at lightning speed without missing a single beat.

Furkids Kitty Kommercial

Furkids, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that operates the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter in the Southeast for rescued cats and Sadie’s Place, a no-kill shelter for dogs. Furkids also operates one of the only facilities in the Southeast dedicated to the care of FIV positive cats. The Furkids mission is to rescue homeless animals, provide them with the best medical care and nurturing environment while working to find them a forever home. Furkids heals the whole animal, physically and emotionally, restoring its health and its spirit. Furkids is the only animal rescue organization in metro Atlanta that allows children of all ages to volunteer.

They also make really hilarious television ads.

Jimmy Fallon, Metallica, and The Roots teamed up on The Tonight Show to play the song “Enter Sandman” using classroom instruments such as a baby electric axe, a kazoo, a Fisher-Price drum, and more.

Here is the original “Enter Sandman” music video for comparison:

From the hilarious David Cross TV series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, season 3, episode 6. When skinheads and Muslims meet unexpectedly, they are united by a common hatred. Definitely NOT politically correct, folks; you’ve been warned!


Instant Buzz Ramen Ad

This Japanese commercial for instant Nissin Chikin Ramen is about as insane as it gets.
