The original CollegeHumor cast

Status: Partially Found

CollegeHumor was a popular internet comedy website of the 2000s and 2010s featuring videos, images and articles to appeal particularly to college students. It is perhaps best known for its wide range of CollegeHumor Originals content, creating many hit sketches and series like Jake and Amir and Hardly Working.

The site notoriously came to an untimely close in January 2020, with its parent company deciding to no longer fund its operation after diminishing returns. This naturally left an array of content that was exclusive to the website, having never been uploaded to the official YouTube channel, to be left to the wayside (assuming it hadn't been removed prior like "Fatal Decision 2: The Decision Is You"). This was slightly rectified with the inclusion of legacy content through the successor Dropout service, but it still omits a large amount of CollegeHumor's missing catalogue. In addition, Dropout's versions of legacy videos would be edited in two ways: they would plaster over the old CollegeHumor website screen bug as it serves no purpose anymore, and likewise, they would remove the iconic CollegeHumor end card that originally featured the "HUH!" sound effect and would punctuate the ending punchline of a video, sometimes allowing for a post-end card gag that is now merely merged into the rest of the video. This alters the video from how it's intended to be presented and perceived and unfortunately serves as the only available copy of at least one video with a post-card gag (Hardly Working "Credit Card"), creating reasonable doubt as to how that video is supposed to play out.

In addition, even video uploads on the CollegeHumor YouTube channel have been subject to being quietly taken down over time. A lot of material that could be seen as especially controversial in their current, more politically correct standards is likely to now be privated. This could be seen with videos containing trans-related jokes, those containing some kind of blackface, those containing slurs and so on. Even if this was somewhat inconsistent, as for example, some videos containing slurs still remain up on the channel ("We Didn't Start the Flame War" and Hardly Working "Brainstorming" contain the usage of "fag"). And sometimes it was particularly difficult to determine exactly why a video was privated in the first place (many of the earlier, prototype Dorkly cartoon sketches seem to be taken down for whatever reason). This absence in some specific videos is also felt in the Dropout service, posing another error in that service's archiving capabilities.

A lot of CollegeHumor's videos are thus currently unavailable. The Wayback Machine almost never saves video uploads of coveted episodes' pages on the CollegeHumor website and it seems that it wasn't exactly common for fans to rip and upload the CollegeHumor-exclusive Hardly Working episodes to YouTube even at the peak of its popularity. There are still a lot of its episodes that are currently missing, even with the edgy episodes and currently Dropout-exclusive episodes both being re-uploaded. Series co-creator David Fishel also doesn't have any copies of the missing episodes.[1]

Considering the scope of an entire website's worth of videos being taken down, this may not be a comprehensive and complete list of missing videos, at least outside of the Hardly Working and The Collegehumor Show listings that were more carefully checked (up to "Sex, Drugs, and Treen" of the modern era in 2013 with Hardly Working's episodes). CollegeHumor Originals were also checked through up to "Phillip Ellis, CEO Retirement Roast" and may not be complete.


Hardly Working

All but three videos of the original 2008 All-Nighter are lost ("Dodgeball", "Bizarro Office" and "He's Right Behind Me"). Additionally, there exists a weird pattern that even videos with particularly notable guest stars are simply no longer available because they were seemingly incentivised as being CollegeHumor-exclusive and were never reuploaded since (in addition to "Whitest Kids" and "Five Year Hangover", the "Jackass" episode is only available through fan reuploads). "Josh's Mindhouse: The Gruber Brothers" is uploaded on YouTube, but is uniquely made unavailable.[2] "Yawn of the Dead" has also now been made unavailable, presumably due to the usage of copyrighted music in Michael Jackson's "Thriller".

Additionally, there's reports[3][4] of a video involving the cast shouting "Boys vs. girls! Boys vs. girls!" and something causing Sarah to get a nosebleed, with "I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5 playing at the end. It's unknown if this is another video (or Hardly Working episode) to add to the list or if it's one of the videos already listed.

CollegeHumor has done many ads for Mike's Hard Lemonade, initially the website-spanning Faking It campaign with several videos made involving participation from Jake and Amir. This was followed by several more over the years like the 4th of July in the Office campaign set in the actual CollegeHumor office and several short Jake and Amir ads, which also had a Spotify advertisement as listed on the official script archive.

"Bookstore" was the first-ever CollegeHumor Original, being uploaded to their website on June 6th, 2000.[7] They have other early works from 2006, some of which are also lost. "Every California Gurls Parody" (which was just a mashup of existing "California Gurls" online parodies) was available on CollegeHumor's iTunes podcast back in the day, which was just their original videos released as a video podcast. "Fatal Decision 2: The Decision Is You" was an interactive choose your own adventure experience using a specific Flash video player of the time that only lasted a couple of years, making it a special rarity amongst lost CollegeHumor content.[8]

Mike and Watt

Mike Schubach (who appeared in CollegeHumor videos like the Jake and Amir "Sick Day" saga) & Alex Watt uploaded their own unofficial series of videos to the CollegeHumor website whilst working there. One video called "Mike and Watt Will Will Dead"[21] was preserved through being one of the only videos on the CollegeHumor website archived by the Wayback Machine. Some of these are preserved through a dedicated YouTube channel[22], but others are missing as they were naturally not official CollegeHumor videos in the first place.[23][24]
