Top Videos: Kimmel Asks About Fake Bands at Coachella, Kate McKinnon and Ellen Dance

Apr 25 2013, 2:02pm CDT | by

This week, Jimmy Kimmel interviewed fans at the Coachella Music Festival about some hot new bands — the only problem is, the bands don't actually exist. But that didn't stop festival-goers from gushing about them. Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon did her best Ellen DeGeneres impersonation in front of Ellen herself, and Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi discovered a family connection with the band Vampire Weekend. Also, in random celebrity strokes of genius, Tilda Swinton led the audience at Ebertfest in a dance to Barry White in remembrance of Roger Ebert, and Buscemi's Boardwalk castmate Michael Shannon did a dramatic (and NSFW!) reading of a nasty letter from a sorority president. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of Top Videos:

Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Coachella Fans: For his latest "Lie Witness News" segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel sent correspondents to the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California to get fans' thoughts on up-and-coming new bands. Ever heard of "The Obesity Epidemic" or "Regis & the Philbins." Probably not — because they're made up. But these people have! (Personally, we prefer their earlier stuff.)

Onion News Empire: Based on the satirical website The Onion, Onion News Empire is among the most promising of the 14 original pilots Amazon unveiled last week. It stars Jeffrey Tambor, Cheyenne Jackson and Christopher Masterson as members of an incompetent news team. Check out the trailer below. (via Tubefilter)

Dark Knight Meets the Avengers: In every group of friends or colleagues, there's always a Debbie Downer to ruin everyone else's fun. In the case of The Avengers, it's none other than the Dark Knight himself — Batman — who always finds something to be glum about. 

CollegeHumor's Favorite Funny Videos

Kate McKinnon on Ellen: The Saturday Night Live comedian's spot-on impersonation of Ellen DeGeneres was put to the test this week, when McKinnon appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. See how it measures up — and what the real Ellen's reaction is.

Epic Rap Battles of History: The popular web series, which features historical figures going head-to-head in rap battles, concludes its second season with a Russian showdown, featuring Lenin, Rasputin, Stalin and Gorbachev. (via Tubefilter)

Steve Buscemi Meets Vampire Weekend: Did you know that Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio is a distant relative of actor Steve Buscemi? Neither did he — until last month. Here, Buscemi stages a family reunion of sorts with the band, and offers them some career advice. (via Tubefilter)

Tilda Swinton Dancing at Ebertfest: When she's not sleeping in a glass box for art, Tilda Swinton has apparently been working on her dance moves. At this year's Ebertfest, Roger Ebert's annual film festival in Champaign, Ill., the actress/artist/Renaissance woman led the audience in a dance to Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything," dedicating the song to the late film critic. It's the feel-good video of the week.

Michael Shannon Reads Sorority Letter: Backstory: The president of the Delta Gamma sorority chapter at the University of Maryland in College Park sent an e-mail to her sorority sisters encouraging them, in rather colorful language, to be more social. Actor Michael Shannon presents the note for your enjoyment. (Again, NSFW!)
