Monday Funday: Risual visuals, William Shatner’s dingle dangle and a very vintage VW

We believe Mondays should not be mundane. The start of the week should not be bleak. The first day should not be the worst day. That’s why we created a weekly roundup of quality content with a sense of humour, to make Mondays into Fundays.

UK vs USA, round 2!

Last week we showed you an example of Brits trying to do sports-related humour as well as their American cousins (and falling miserably short). Now, to even things up, here’s Risual’s take on the dreaded corporate video, made popular by US companies. Risual, an IT firm from Stafford, beautifully captures every corporate cliché and sends them up with a big serving of that glorious British wit.

Dingle dangle?

I have literally no idea what this is about. Just bask in the Shatner, let the warm Shatner wash over you, turn the Shatner up to 11. I’m not afraid to admit that the line at 1:19 reduced me to a trembling, teary mess of mirth.

From the ha-ha-harchives

They don’t come much more vintage than this now do they? A classic piece of film history from the dawn of the advertising age. It lacks the brash, punchy humour of modern viral marketing vids, but maybe it’s richer for that. There’s probably never been a better example of quiet understated humour since.

Where next?
