Have You Seen This? Delightful compilation of 100 evil laughs

Posted July 23

BADDIETOWN — “Mine is an evil laugh,” the character Wash says in the beloved TV series “Firefly.”

I relate to that perfect line, which is probably why I was drawn to a video of 100 different people performing 100 evil laughs.

Personally, I have a particular evil laugh that is less Wicked Witch of the West and more sly trickster. My “heh, heh, heh” has a certain intonation that lets the listener understand I’m low-key plotting something evil or enjoying Schadenfreude. Basically it’s a perfect warning system for you to keep one eye open and grip your pillow tight when you exit light and enter night. (Reminder: James Hetfield has a great evil laugh in Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”)

The laughs in this video from YouTube channel WatchCut Video run the whole gamut. Some put their whole hearts and guts behind the laugh with truly chilling results; some put their hearts and guts into the laugh and sound like a perfect baddie on a Disney ride or in a Disney movie; and some just don’t have the chutzpah to come up with much of anything even remotely evil sounding.

However, the whole video is delightful, even if it does have “evil” in the title. As a bonus, if you’re looking to add an evil laugh to your repertoire, or maybe hone the laugh you’ve already got in stock, you can get more out of this video than just 3 minutes of entertainment.

Takeaway: If you listen to an evil laugh, you’ll be entertained for a moment. If you learn to evil laugh, you’ll be entertained for a lifetime. Mwha-ha-ha!
