Monday Funday: comedy legends and cult classics

Monday Funday is our weekly roundup of humourous marketing content, designed to give you a little pick-me-up so you’re ready to face the week ahead. Prepare to be edu-tained.

Seinfeld, Leno, Gervais… so many legends, so little time!

I know what you’re thinking, ‘how has it taken you this long to include a post on Jerry Seinfeld?’. It’s a fair question astute reader and honestly I don’t have an answer for you. How about instead of getting hung up on the past let’s focus on the now – legendary stand-up comic and writer Jerry Seinfeld has, for a couple of years now, been taking a long string of the world’s most famous comedians out for a coffee and a spin in one of the many sweet rides in his classic car collection. The imaginatively named ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee‘ is a sublimely funny as it is simplistic, and sponsored (ever-so-subtly) by car brand Acura.

And now for something completely darker…

Switching from sun-drenched shots of comedians cracking jokes in California, here’s something much, much darker from denim company Denham. At six minutes long it’s a bit of a lengthy watch, but worth it for the inspired pastiche of one of the most chilling and iconic scenes from modern movie history.

From the ha-ha-harchives

Sticking with the comedians and cult classics theme, what do you get when you cross Eddie Murphy and a treasured Japanese brand? Pure, unintentional comedy gold.
