"There's Something In My Eye...Please Excuse Me While I Get It Out..."

I love this guy.

His name's Dave Coyne, although he goes by the nick "DCLugi" on Youtube. The videos he does are mostly comedy, like the "Snakes On A Plane" one above; he got some minor fame online for his U2 parody video featuring an ode to Samuel Jackson (which was a very-cool shot-by-shot recreation of the one for the quite-awful U2 song "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"). He's from the DC area, too, which is cool.

A lot of his videos use green-screen techniques and tight editing, and his production values are surprisingly high - especially since he freely admits to being a one-man show who (mostly) doesn't get paid for what he does. He's an actor and a voice-over artist, though, and there's obviously a good reason for that. His Christopher Walken, Jack Nicholson and Joe Pesci impressions are dynamite, but his original characters are hilarious too. Someone's got to sign this guy. Now.

My personal favorite DCLugi vids are the two below, "Help Wanted" and "My Uncle Lives On A Funny Farm". If you watch the last one - just track with it until the very end, don't drop out halfway through. You'll be rewarded for your patience, I promise.

The first one of his I ever saw, "Classic TV", is pretty funny too (though the ending is a little weird):

Check this guy's videos out. He's hilarious.
