Kevin James’ YouTube page, which sprung up right when we went into quarantine, has been one of the best parts of 2020. We’re not damning him with feint praise, either. The original videos he’s been putting out would be awesome in any year. The reason they’re so good is that he fully commits to them, no matter how silly or absurd the premise. And they don’t get any dumber—in the best way—than his BBC nature documentary parody narrated by “Sir” Adam Sandler.
Just be prepared to see a big furry Kevin James give birth to a little furry Kevin James.

This pitch-perfect parody gets all of the nuances, beats, and camera shots absolutely right. It also nails that circle-of-life-style sense of dread and hope all at once. And Adam Sandler legitimately does a great job narrating. Especially since some of these lines must have been hard to read with a straight face. But what really sells the whole thing is James’ unwavering commitment to the bit. It’s all so, so stupid, and he’s all in on it. Even if that means sitting in a lake in a koala suit. And while that would be funny any year, it’s really what we need in 2020.
