One of the best, weirdest Web series out there right now is The ArScheerio Paul Show, in which comedian Paul Scheer re-enacts classic episodes of The Arsenio Hall Show.
This week seven new episodes of ArScheerio were unveiled, and they're all pretty phenomenal. Head to YouTube to see a bunch of wonderfully odd pairings, including Seth Rogen as Gary Coleman, Alison Brie as Madonna, Max Greenfield as Vanilla Ice and Jack McBrayer as Steven Seagal.
Scheer offers both word-for-word and improvised versions of the late-night interviews, and I have to say it's funnier to see them do the true re-enactments. The Madonna/Rosie O'Donnell clip is so strange, I had to look up the original - and yep, there's no deviation from the dialogue.
Compare and contrast:
Watch all of the new episodes at youtube.com/buhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (part of the JASH channel) or youtube.com/PaulScheerVideos. You should also take a moment to admire the '90s wardrobe selections, from Scheer's bright 'n' boxy jackets to that leather suit on "Vanilla Ice."
