    NEW favorite sketch

  6. alicia says:

    it would be great if i could premarital sex with your entire cast

  7. alicia says:


  8. Hipster Scum says:

    It refuses to load for me…

  9. nickshorts says:

    Haha testing the boundaries of a gremlin’s limits, I wonder about this kind of thing all the time. Just how much is too much, can it be quantified. I wonder if 39 watts would phase the mogwai

  10. Casey says:

    Same here, Hipster. Even on SuperDeluxe, where it’s on the front page, the link is bad

  11. Ryan says:

    HAhaha nice. I really enjoyed this one. I thought the Mogwai would turn into a gremlin xD

  12. Magnus says:

    Awesome job guys! This was hilarious!

    Reminds me of the old days when I put my Furby in the microwave…..priceless.

    “He was REALLY Chinese!” Brilliant

  13. Casey says:

    It’s playing now, and you guys are back on form, I love it! I’ve been a bit disappointed by some of your recent videos, but this one had me cracking up the entire time.

  14. Agargara says:

    Would have been better with a Mogwai soundtrack.

  15. Lila927 says:

    Awwww, how cute! I got a Mogwai for Christmas and accidentally fed it after midnight. You know what the weird thing was? It caught on fire, too. Great sketch. I was waiting for it to be dunked in the bucket and turn into Caleb…

  16. Kevin says:

    Brilliant… as always, hahaha

    brings back good memories, I love that movie

  17. Mickey Eagle says:

    OMG, those are the work of teh devil!

  18. Rook says:

    Haha, i always wondered those same questions when i watched the Gremlins movies. Good to see that you stopped making music videos for at least one sketch.

  19. Gabe says:

    Great job guys. My favorite sketch in a while.

  20. Jake says:

    Ok, this one was great. You guys have kind of started getting overly mainstream lately, and I’m not some kind of obsessive purist or anything, but it was this kind of random humor that originally made me love OE. This was a really great return to your roots, and it reminded me of “Kidnapping”, one of my all-time favorites. Please make more of these, they were always really great up until… well, I might as well say it, Super Deluxe. Anyway, keep up the awesome work.

  21. Jake says:

    Scratch my eariler comment, I meant to say “Ransom”. “Kidnapped” was actually kind of disturbing.

  22. Stacy says:

    i love that dunking it in water is the first thing you think of.

  23. berkeley says:

    hahaha, great vid, is that a new member of OE?

  24. Duff says:

    Just to offer a contrasting opinion — I love the newer sketches, especially the music videos. “O’doul’s” may be my favorite sketch of all time. Jesse’s music is seriously amazing.

  25. James says:

    I loved this one! I’m also impressed with the increasingly sophisticated animation.

  26. Suki says:

    That was great.

  27. Heather says:

    Mogwai is adorable….

  28. M....R says:

    Thank you for this! It reminds me a little of Playing Dead, in that you feel guilty to laugh at it, but it’s just so great that it shows you the humor even in a dark theme.
    I’ve actually been really disappointed with a lot of your recent work, even some of the ones that weren’t music video themed. (Akon calls T-Pain actually drove me away for several weeks) But this, this is accessible and funny and NOT stupid. Please make more like this! I don’t mean exactly like it, but videos with more of a outlandish sensibility instead of a spoofing one.

    Also, thanks for fixing the old quicktime videos on the site.

  29. Christine says:


    I fucking love Mogwai, ESPECIALLY when they’re on fire!

    You guys are the best.

  30. Trevor says:

    Great job guys, that was hilarious.

  31. James says:

    this is the best one in such a looooong time

  32. Suki says:

    My favorite line:
    “I’m just gonna hold it out here until it gets acclimated to the planet it lives on.”

  33. Walsh says:

    “The second Chinese guy in the basement rule is…”
    “because again… this guy was really Chinese”


  34. Chicka Chad says:

    Words can not describe how happy I am with this sketch.

  35. L says:


  36. Olde English rhymes with Frog says:

    <3 this video. I felt bad for the Gremlin but I couldnt stop laughing at it :(

  37. Hans says:

    mogwai is actually chinese for ghost, evil spirit, demon, and/or devil

  38. chester says:

    Dear Old English,
    I remember the pre-Super Deluxe days. They were glorious, and what’s better, funny. Please use any means necessary to return to that artistic Shangri La.

  39. Alymicy says:

    YES!! This was your greatest comeback! YAY!! (I admit the ending was a little dissapointing, though….what would’ve happened if he got wet?)

    <3 your new sketches! ;D

  40. Emma says:

    Awwwww, poor Gizmo!

  41. soundhasmass says:

    I feel like I’m a bad fan for being unwilling to incessantly bitch about how the sketches you all (OE) go out of your way to make aren’t exactly how I pictured them in my mind. And maybe even worse for not preferring them to be a certain style of “oldschool” or “non music video”. I feel like it’s inconsiderate of me to be so overall thankful that you even do produce videos and have been there over the years entertaining me, which would seemingly make up for any shortcomings you had in fulfilling my expectations on a particular video (none so far). I can’t seem to grasp the one great truth that the worth of OE through the ages is entirely manifest in whatever may be the most recent video. Had I criticism, I don’t know that I could sacrifice enough of the “constructive” element for the right excess of “scornful.” It’s apparently shameful to be so accepting.

    Thanks OE, for what it’s worth

  42. Ben from OE says:

    Thanks guys! You’re a bunch of sweeties.

  43. big bob billy bob big says:

    “…I also got some slippers!”

  44. max says:

    “He was really chinese”
    “We gotta dunk this in water”
    “Im just gonna hold it out here until it get’s acclimated or blinded”

  45. max says:

    WTF soundmass

  46. joel says:

  47. Meredith says:

  49. Dan says:

  50. Dave says:

    Woah, I have one of those dolls! well, it was my sisters, but for all intents and purposes…it’s mine!

  51. woods says:


    Incidentally, I once had a best friend called Mogwai… but some stuff happened and one thing led to another and in the end I killed him…I dont know why I always have to kill everything I love anyways, U GUYS OWN


  52. iMatt says:

    I totally wondered why my Mogwai was kinda screwed up!

  53. Kevin says:

    What’s the beer in this one? Are they drinkin’ O’Douls? Are you drinkin O’Douls? Mother F%^&a dont you touch my O’douls, noo

  54. SMack says:

    this video belongs on the top of your site… it’s definitely one of my favorites by you guys.

  56. Dan's Stalker says:

  58. Kikolani says:

    Poor Mogwai!

  59. Ishaq says:

    Uh yea, funny ass shit! Needed to laugh to laugh this hard so I could pass that fucked up cranberry sauce I ate. Someone should tell the elderly there’s more to the de-canning and slicing after 30 years of storage.

  60. Max says:

    Dave has all the good lines in this one

    “This thing is Awesome, we gotta dunk it in water!”

    “Just to be sure, can we eat the mogwai after midnight?”

  61. Max says:

  65. OzzyBoy says:

  66. Ronnie says:

    In Cantonese(a Chinese dialect), mo-gwai means monster. I can see no relation.
    LOL. Funny video.

  67. Fun says:

    Look how Mogwai nods ‘yes’ when they wonder if he knows about daylight saving system. Hilarious!

  68. will says:
