Former American football player-turned-actor Terry Crews is now the host of World’s Funniest Fails, a series featuring funny viral videos depicting all sorts of blunders.
Viewers may wonder that since these videos are already readily available on the Internet, why should they still tune in to the showe? “… we clean up the Internet for everybody. My daughter is 17 and she shows me the latest funniest thing, but you can’t kind of watch things on a computer with the whole family because there’s always things that pop up that are a little inappropriate, or weird or whatever,” Crews tells Paste magazine.
“This is a show that everyone can watch and not think, ‘Oh man, I wish I could have unseen that with my family’.”
Besides just airing the viral footage, Crews – with the help of guest panellists such as Margaret Cho, Sherri Shepherd and Russell Peters – will determine the biggest “fail” of the week.
Speaking of fails, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor also talks to Young Hollywood about the importance of looking at life’s failures in a positive way. “The reason I took this show was to show that failure is necessary. It is absolutely imperative that you make mistakes,” he says in an interview with Young Hollywood. “You know what’s the mistake everybody makes? They try to be perfect and perfect is impossible.”
World’s Funniest Fails airs every Friday at 10.55pm on RTL CBS Extreme HD (HyppTV Ch 617). – Kenneth Chaw
