A few smiles

I realize I don't have many icons where people are smiling. This should be rectified, I think.

Though I am not feeling very joyous today, and in fact am feeling pretty lowdown, it's More Joy Day, and I wanted to go find stuff that made me smile and share it. So, a few things off YouTube, which probably most of you have seen, but just in case you haven't, here they are.



First, the Evolution of Dance videos from comedian Judson Laipply. The new one isn't quite as fun as the first, I think just because it's not the first, but they both make me laugh, a lot. I love the little bit of "Jump Around," since I vidded that last year for Vividcon. There's just something about a guy in not especially great shape, jeans that are too short, and white socks doing these dances that's inherently smile-inducing.

First one



The second one



This one has kind of a sad ending in its own way, and I ended up hating Catherine Tate by the end because she is MEAN to my beloved Daniel (OK IT'S ENTIRELY POSSIBLE THAT I OVERIDENTIFY WITH BEING A DANIEL CRAIG FAN, BUT IT'S NOT LIKE THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT, SO SHUT UP!!), but the whole idea of it is just so freaking hilarious and I love how happy he is when he says he wants the crazy straw. He is such a great sport about his new status these days (witness his appearance on John Stewart), and I just love his cute little smile when he's embarrassed.

And laurashapiro has a hilarious little video on her lj today where someone who's never seen the Star Wars films tells the story of the movies. I died.

The straight boys were a scream. Talk about being secure in your sexuality.

I've seen that CT/DC and he does a brilliant job. I also enjoy the CT/David Tennant comedy relief sketch vid

gah so many vids at youtube bring me joy The Big Fat Quiz of the Year shows especially the years with Jonathon Ross/Rob Brydon/Russell Brand/Noel Fielding on the panels and the Moss & Roy kiss for The IT Crowd scene and the Gavin & Stacey Smitty & his sister scene and Top Gear police car challenge and oh just sooooo many more and I think they are all out of the UK *g*

I had no idea there was a second Evolution of Dance video. How cool, I can't wait to watch it. Thanks for sharing these!

Also, Daniel Craig was SUPER ADORABLE on The Daily Show last night. Wow.

I know! John Stewart made his palms sweaty! That was so cool. I really want to kidnap Daniel Craig and make him my love slave.

I know! He's such a dork in so many ways, and I get distracted by his high-water jeans, but it's adorable!
