The folks of the Huffington Post make funny and satirical web videos for people who want a little more meat on the bone of their comedy chicken than just finger-pointy-ha-ha. Eschewing knee-jerk snark, they often use a blizzard of cinema & pop culture references to make their laughs broader, warmer even. Check out their video for Daft Punk’s Get Lucky: it’s like Mark Cousins’ 15-hour The Story of Film condensed into a 4-minute grin.
