Uh...what the hell is going on here?
We don't get the chance to mix religion and comedy nearly enough here at the Comedy Examiner's Office, but thanks to the video below, that's precisely what we have for you this afternoon. In the clip below-- which is labeled "Proof of Holy Spirit Caught on Camera! Mass Seizures!", so you know it's good-- a preacher leads his parishioners through just another Sunday church service. The thing is, this is no ordinary preacher, and those are no ordinary parishioners. What, pray tell, is really going on in the clip below? See for yourselves and sound off below, my gentle Examiner readers...
Amazingly, we seldom get to cover the world of religion here at the Comedy Examiner's Office. Considering the way panties get wadded every time we touch politics, perhaps this is for the best. But today's different, because eagle-eyed Comedy Examiner reader "Cheryl S." has sent in one of the strangest, funniest clips that we've seen all week. What we have below is...well, actually, I'm not quite sure how to describe it. Watch it for yourselves and see if you can spot the "proof of the Holy Spirit" this video claims to have captured on film:
We've got no further information on where this was shot, when it was shot (looks suspiciously like the late 80's, early 90's to me), or what the hell the preacher put in the Communion wine to get his parishioners to behave like that. Our best guess for all of those questions: Alabama, 1989, and Ecstacy. But what do I know? I haven't been to church in a long time, but based on the video above, I may need to pay my nearest house of worship a visit this coming Sunday. Who's coming with me?
As per usual, you can stay tuned for more funny videos, news, reviews, interviews, recaps, pictures, and more in the near future... or you can really do the Comedy Examiner a solid by hitting the "Subscribe" button up top next to his ugly mug. You'll get all future Comedy Examiner articles-- including our twice-per-weekend box office reports-- delivered straight to your inbox, free of charge, the moment they're published. Why, just look at all the fun you've been missing out on lately:
COMEDY EXAMINER REVIEW: "PREDATORS" IS BIG, LOUD, BRAINLESS--AND SURPRISINGLY AWESOME-- in which the Comedy Examiner reviews Nimrod Antal and Robert Rodriguez' Predators, a film that turned out 100% better than anyone expected. Come by and see what it looks like when the Comedy Examiner reviews a film that isn't completely terrible. It's weird.
LINDSAY LOHAN'S LAWYER-- WHO ONCE PUT UP WITH OJ SIMPSON THROUGH AN ENTIRE TRIAL--CAN'T WORK WITH LOHAN ANYMORE-- in which the Comedy Examiner mocks Lindsay Lohan's luck even more, specifically the news that her lawyer just quit on her for whatever reason. If you're a fan of Lohan having bad luck, you'll want to check this one out.
PRODUCER FOR "THE OFFICE" SAYS THAT DWIGHT SCHRUTE OUGHT TO TAKE OVER THE SCRANTON BRANCH-- in which someone working for The Office says that Dwight (Rainn Wilson) ought to take over for Steve Carell as boss of the Scranton Branch whenever the seventh season wraps up. There are good ideas, bad ideas, terrible ideas, and then there's this idea. Didn't they catch our poll? Ricky Gervais won.
HAS WARNER BROS. FOUND THE DIRECTOR FOR THE NEXT "SUPERMAN" MOVIE, AND IS IT REALLY THE GUY WHO DIRECTED "HOME ALONE" AND "MRS. DOUBTFIRE"?-- in which the Comedy Examiner questions Warner Bros.' judgement on the best man to helm the next "Superman" movie. They really, really shouldn't go through with this one.
