Horizons: Monkey Island on YouTube

April 23rd, 2011 by | 3 comments

This week I thought we should take a look at some funny and amazing Monkey Island videos on YouTube. Yes, the tube has it all and we’re ready to dive headfirst into it. Join me after the break for a guy on a unicycle playing Monkey Island music on bagpipes, concerts, Grog XD, and much more all in the name of Monkey Island!

We start out with a guy playing Monkey Island music on a trumpet and bagpipes while riding a unicycle 🙂

PRESS PLAY ON TAPE plays the Monkey Island theme live in London in 2004.

A look at how Monkey Island 2 would look in 3D:

Evolution of PC audio as told by The Secret of Monkey Island

A fan-made trailer for a ‘Secret of Monkey Island’ movie

Monkey Island 2 Special-Uber Edition

The Secret of Monkey Island speedrun – 39 minutes

Best video ever is when an Argentine journalist believes Grog XD to be a real drink

This last video has nothing to do with Monkey Island, but it is so sweet and sad that I had to show it to you. I defy any of you to not squeeze a tear when you watch this video

    You know you’re a Monkey Island fan when… you’ve seen all of these videos prior to this blog post :).

    I hadn’t seen the last video previously, though, but I love it! Oh, by the way, here’s the original:
