AWESOME THING OF THE DAY: The 100 Greatest Maniacal Movie Laughs
August 13, 2012
submit to reddit

If, by chance, you're thinking about taking over the world, you'll need a few things to pull it off.

  • An army (preferably robots, aliens or zombies)
  • A threat to the entire planet (like a weird virus or something)
  • Plenty of sleep (taking over the world is stressful, you need your rest)
  • A sense of style (see Kim Jong Il's all-grey army suit or Mobutu's leopard skin hats)
  • And of course, the cherry on top of the sundae: an evil, maniacal laugh.

But what if you can't quite nail down the perfect laugh? Sure, you could go with the standard "mwahahaha, muwhahaha, muahahaha, buahahaha." Or you could imitate Vincent Price at the end of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller.' But what if you want to break out on your own? Well, you're in luck. Check out this video of the 100 Greatest Maniacal Movie Laughs.
