Three Of The Worst Exercise Videos Ever, Or: Why Do My Friends Do This To Me?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 14.472% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Normally, I’d save the best for last, but I’m afraid you’d miss it. This is, by far, the greatest exercise video I have ever seen. And perhaps the greatest comedy video I have ever seen. I don’t wanna oversell it, but I literally had to jab myself in the stomach to stop laughing so I could breathe in. This thing is the YouTube equivalent of Joker Gas.

If that’s not enough weirdness for your day, I sent this one to a friend, who had the sound off, and she wondered: “Why is Ferrett sending me a picture of a gay guy in drag swanning about?” But no. You’d think this crevasse-like cameltoe would be enough of a clue, but this Prancercizing is pretty amazing.

(Comments are disabled for that video? I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY.)
Then Clodia_risa shot me this video, which crosses post-traumatic stress disorder, a mugger with panties in an unlikely location, English lessons, and… kind of exercise. It’s rather hypnotic, really.

It’s been a weird day.

    Jeremiah and I are sitting here watching this. He said: “They can’t be serious.” I was too busy laughing and then hacking up a lung to answer him.

      Then we watched the other two. Oh. My.
      The Prancercize almost made me hyperventilate. And I would just like to share this with you:
      “It’s about Self-Expression. It’s about Non-violence. It’s about Conservation.”

    I had to look into that last one. Apparently the show is premised on the idea that trying to mimic the movements of another culture makes it easier to learn that culture’s language. Hence, chicks doing aerobics while repeating English phrases. I guess they also tried to keep it interesting by making them phrases that you might find realistically useful if you, say, get mugged, have to go to the doctor, or are the Terminator:
