If you know where to look, YouTube is real weird. I somehow managed to fall down the YouTube rabbit hole as it pertains to Mortal Kombat the other day. I figured it might be fun to share some of my favorite weird and/or funny findings from my trip to crazytown. Keep in mind, these represent the ones that I feel like had at least some comedic or artistic value, there are some other videos out there that are just too weird even for this.
I’m not sure if YouTube user ragdollboi actually created these fatalities or simply uploaded the montage, but either way there is some pretty clever and funny stuff in here. A fair warning though, “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” is in this video, so you’ll be singing it for another 17 days.
Crazy Elevator Prank.
These days people are willing do some crazy stuff to get their view counts up. I’m really surprised that no one shot, stabbed or otherwise assaulted this guy, but props to him because the reactions are pretty hilarious.
MK Characters owning real people.
I love these kinds of videos. If you’ve never seen one, you’re missing out. Sure, the animation isn’t exactly realistic, but it’s not supposed to me. Still, that’s one funny compilation of people getting destroyed by MK characters.
Scorpion vs. Donkey Kong
In another MK mashup, Scorpion takes on Donkey Kong. Things don’t end up going so well for Mr. Kong…or Princess Peach for that matter. Brutal, absolutely. Hilarious, most definitely. I’m thinking Scorpion has earned his place in the Super Smash Bros. roster.
Mortal Kombat: The Really Fucked Up Sitcom
I don’t quite know what to make of this. It’s definitely weird. It’s pretty offensive. It’s kind of hilarious. There are several more episodes of this “show”, and they all seem to be equally strange. The thing is, there is some really good production value here. The voice over is great, the writing isn’t bad, and considering that the animator is using some MK2 sprite stills, there manages to be a pretty cohesive story. Still, YouTube is a strange place you guys; a strange, strange place.
