My Apologies to Drew Carey

Is it weird to base a whole blog post on someone else’s YouTube videos? Whatever. There are no rules here. So, put your feet on the table, ruin your dinner with Doritos and go blow your nose on the good towels. This post just had to be written.

I recently became reacquainted with a couple of videos that make me nearly pee my pants every time I watch them. My husband travels a lot for work (more on that another time) and one of the many cities he’s had the good fortune to visit is beautiful Cleveland, Ohio. During one of his visits there, he and I first discovered these mock tourism videos made by a couple of brilliant dudes who I can only assume hail from Cleveland. Otherwise, it’s totally offensive.

The first video is funny … but the second one had me inhaling my Diet Coke. Which really burns, by the way. And yet I still associate these viewing experiences with positivity.  That’s how funny they are.

I don’t know these guys personally but I really, really hope they’ll do a promotional spot for ODNT one day … or maybe even my daughter’s wedding video!

Sorry, Cleveland. These dudes started it. Enjoy …

The first one …

… and its sequel.

The line about the VCR kills me.

  1. OH. MY. GOD!!!! My stomach is cramping!! Who the f@ck still uses pay phones?! LMAO! Thank you so much for these!!

  2. These have the double advantage of being hilarious and looking like the opening credits to almost any 1970’s sitcom.

  3. I just played this and from across the room Chris says to me, “Are you watching Cleveland?” Then he went on about how funny it is, so I missed it. Will go watch it again. 😉

  4. Very funny. An oldie but a goodie and always a solid laugh!

  5. LOL. I actually used to travel for work a LOT to Cleveland. Usually in the winter with a major blizzard. That place is downright horrible. Though, the clip of Sushi Rock gave me goosebumps. That is like the only good part about Cleveland.

  6. If all the other states export their douchebags to 6th street, maybe Cleveland will rebound. Win-win!
    These were hilarious!

    That is all sorts of awesome sauce!

  8. I am just seeing this (a little behind) and these people are my new heroes….

  9. OMG look at the guys other video – especially the Cat one and the Reel one…still laughing at the Today Show…

  10. Is this the opening from a sitcom from 1975? That has Bob Newhart or Welcome Back Kotter written all over it! Those were the days. Great videos, thanks for posting

    I’m really laughing hard!! I have to share this with my husband. Love the bus stop part and, yes, the VCR. So sad, but true. Thanks for linking it up!
