The "Doctor" thread reminded me of this MadTV skit.  I didn't think it was appropriate for that thread, so I'm throwing it in here.  I bet the doctors/therapists on here wish they could do this (6:16):

Did you guys watch any of the other videos that are recommended as similar?  Pretty funny remade trailers.

The MadTV skit is brilliant. Bob Newhart is a subtle comic master. I'm sending this one to all my therapist friends. :D

Paul Anka accompanied by his orchestra, sings Smells like Teen Spirit.  Spectacular miss.

I always liked Alien Ant Farm's version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal."

I think I posted this one a while back, but if you ever wondered what would happen if a real rabbit ran onto the track during a greyhound race (1:13):

Am I the only one who misread that as "primate matters" the first time around?

Some great videos here! The Shining trailer, the swinging monkey... and here I thought the 'You Can't Break These Cuffs' video was the best thing on youtube all these years.  :D

Very nice. 

***

Roy Clark playing Malaguena on The Odd Couple (3:15) is a good one:

And another performance of Malaguena from Pepe Romero (3:27):

1.  It's hilarious that Jack Klugman is wearing a backward that clip. 

2.  It's hilarious that Roy Clark was on The Odd Couple

3.  Roy Clark was awesome!

Glen Campbell is another of my favorites.

Here is a great performance of "Wichita Lineman":

http://youtu.be/rjzTNWWO7U0

"Gentle on My Mind" from the same show:

http://youtu.be/-jgptB03xWo

"William Tell Overture" from 1977 in London with symphony:

http://youtu.be/LSyTK-CdRTc

I was fortunate to get to see Glenn Campbell for the first time in 2010 before he became seriously ill.  He's a great guitat player, singer and overall entertainer.  He will be missed.

While we're in the neighborhood, let me go ahead and say that Johnny Cash was amazing.

If you've always wanted to get into Johnny Cash, but didn't know where to start, here are three songs to get you going:

"Bird on a Wire" live from Jon Stewart's show back in 1994 (it was apparently Stewart's second night on the air):

"The Man Comes Around":

"Sunday Morning Coming Down":

These two videos aren't on the level of Johnny Cash, but they are two very good covers of popular songs:

Alanis Morissette sings The Black Eyed Pea's song "My Humps" (4:10):

http://youtu.be/pRmYfVCH2UA

Here's Homeless Mustard singing "Creep" by Radiohead (3:18):
