Title: Is this funny? Absurd? Stupid? What is it?
Post by: mgriffin on February 01, 2011, 03:45:43 PM
Has anybody seen this video, Celeryman, featuring Paul Rudd?

I waver between thinking this is NOT funny (and that I only want to THINK it's funny for some reason I can't fathom), and that it's actual VERY funny, extremely funny... dangerously funny.

I can't figure it out. It's just so damn puzzling and absurd.  What does everybody else think about Celeryman?  There are little details in this that start to seem more inspired, but which I never noticed until I'd seen it multiple times.

That's what I said the first time I saw it. Some how I ended up seeing it again and thinking a few parts were amusing. Now I think it's a work of comedic genius, controlling my brain via remote control.

That didn't do much for me, mirth-wise.

The geekiness of it appealed to me.  It's certainly not laugh out loud funny, just... odd.  But I think that's what they were going for.  Something so strange that people want to share it with their friends.

I could see this easily becoming a meme.

Have to concur with you there...Father Ted is wonderfully funny.  I've not seen it in a few years.  I dont get BBC America anymore.
