awesomeness from Black Magic Roller Coaster

i saw these at the EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE festival... at the festival, it was on a giant screen with no titles, which i really think is the way to go because it makes the punchlines that much more impactful (yup, I know that's really a word)... without titles there was no context, and so my thought process was something like, 'what is this? wait, is that what i think it is? holy shit this is rad!' giving the viewer a title like "Young Van Damme" the audience is already set up for the joke, but the surprise and the unknown is what really makes the humor work i think, and by taking away the titles it adds quite a bit of unknown... either way, these videos are just too awesome.

black magic roller coaster i salute you.
