Top five funniest explainer videos

Phew! Whew! And all that jazz….finally I get a breather. Thought why not continue the good work Nisha has been doing with the list of fives (Not read those? Check them out-here and here) and bring you another list of Five, this time the five funniest explainer videos. Yeah it is really, really tough to select the funniest ones ‘cause there’s hordes o’ funny explainers out there and of course funniness is subjective.

But still, here are some that we feel may be pretty high on their funny quotient. Also we wanted to present you with some variety so have selected different types of humor. Hope you enjoy….Ready? Here’s the list in random order

Dietbet :
Ok,so maybe not ha-ha-ha, ROFLMAO funny but it does give you lot of smiles. Especially the visuals with all the food and the words with all the food references…Oh my god! How cruel, cruel can you get on the poor dieters! I really love the way the word “Diet” is introduced as well. The office fridge challenge and wearing “I love Bieber” shirt challenge, make you smile, despite yourself. The weigh-in where one of the characters cheats are all things that make for good humor. All-in-all, a very well-planned humorous explainer, methinks- how about you?

Havana Heat – Good Books Great Writers Series:
Oh boy! If you are ok with a more than a little “risque” humor then this is the one for you. The entire narrative is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Mills and Boon books but club it with double meaning references and imageries and the seductive, sultry narration and you wonder- is this really just an explainer for a bookstore? Curious? Check it out. Although bewarned that it is slightly NSFW, so be sure that there are no bosses, or impressionable kids around. Just kidding…or maybe not ;P Make sure you see it to the end!

This video is in complete contrast to the above one- it is completely clean and absolutely fun. This is cute and sweet humor at its best. Much like the Epipheos, we’re huge fans of Grumo Media, especially the Grumo brand of humor. And this video is especially funny with the repeated use of “Geeky” and the adorable VO changes and the oh-so lovable characters and also? A pig with wings of bread that flies! How cool is that?!! And the earth actually smiles in this vid! Then there’s this mock formula…I don’t know about you, but I smile each time I see this explainer video!

MovieClips :
As we’ve already mentioned Epipheo, can a video by them be far behind?Actually this studio has been giving us source material for laughs for a long time now. But we selected this because…it has, wait for it, Chuck Norris in it! And who doesn’t like Chuck Norris jokes? But that apart, the whole narration is funny. The perfect pauses and delivery style, the unsophisticated yet witty sketches, the timing- everything accentuates the humor.

We did have to include one of our babies, didn’t we? But choosing one was difficult. Finally we selected this because it is unique and very different from all the videos we have above. Take the retro VO, for instance, or the very premise that HR would be involved in superhero hunt…it is pretty funny. Then when we look at the goofy contestants, or the Van Damme reference split that the selected superhero does and we find more smile spots. Keep looking at this video, there are lots of humorous easter eggs you’ll discover.

Whooeeey! So that rounds up this top five funniest explainer videos list. Do you have any to add to it? Do let us know and until the next time one of us has a brainwave for a blog,Ta-ta!


Vimida is a self-proclaimed writer and creative director who thinks that more than 10 years of writing makes her eligible for the Pulitzer or Nobel or “somesuchthing” (well, she’s doesn’t care much about names, it is the sentiments that matter, right?) She often uses her BA English Gold Medal and Symbiosis Mass Communication background to finish off arguments, if they’re not going in her favour. Not being satisfied with writing, she has now decided to interfere in Creative Direction as well. When not at work, she can be seen in the company of her son, who has the uphill task of making his mom grow up right. You can get in touch with her on Facebook, or Twitter, or any social platform, because she signs up for a new one each day. She has many blogs,but she rarely blogs, so the best place to catch her work will be our website.
