Mad TV wasn’t a very good show. However, like most sketch comedy, it had it’s moments. Before everyone on the internet was making parody song music videos, Mad TV was doing it better. Here are some of the show’s funniest music video parodies.

While Jimmy Kimmel’s Emmy open is not the best one ever, Kimmel certainly kept true to himself. The open is clever without being brilliant, so how much you enjoy it depends on how much you like Kimmel and his guests.
Every Friday, I post a clip from an English speaking country other than the United States.
This weeks clip comes from Noel’s House Party. I’ve mentioned the show before. It’s one those shows that isn’t good, but I can’t look away because it’s so ridiculous. In the United States, Noel’s House Party would be relegated to Nickelodeon. To an American, this show looks like it took something meant for kids and pretended it was for adults. The show aired on Saturday nights on the BBC for 8 years in the 90s.
In this video, snooker player John Parrot brilliantly cheats at Grab A Grand. You’ve probably seen the same game on Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show under a different name. Grab A Grand puts a contestant into a rectangular box with money flying around and they have to grab as much money as possible in a short period of time.
I wish I would have though of that. Parrot’s solution is so simple and obvious, yet I would have never thought of it.
