YouTube user lorocker has re-cut scenes from “Seinfeld” of George and his fiancee Susan’s death into a dramatic movie trailer. Brilliant, though it does get a little spoileriffic (that is, if this was a real movie).

Encore: Zach Galifianakis vs. Kanye West by Barbecue Bros

Seeing the The Hangover this weekend co-starring Zach Galifianakis and using Kanye‘s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” reminded me of this hilarious Kanye-approved alternate video produced by Zach on his North Carolina farm and featuring Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

From director Michael Blieden’s description on the YouTube site for the video:

On June 1, 2007 I got a one line email from Zach that said, “this sounds like a joke but it is true. Kayne West wants me to lip sync his new video. can you fly to nc to shoot it? ” There was very little discussion in advance other than that. Hiring the cloggers was Zach’s idea, and Inman was able to track them down. For all the ridiculousness you see here, I have to say we took the song very seriously. We asked ourselves, “What if two farmers from North Carolina set out to make their own Kanye West music video…and succeeded?”
