Now, hold up- yes, Ford Seeuws is not Indian, but, he currently lives in India and is fantastic! He is, essentially from the US, and came to India around 12 years ago. He lives in Delhi with his family, and explores as he wades through Indian culture, food and above all- the people. The little eccentricities of us Indians, our day to day lives, seep through seemingly enough, from this third point perspective that is both, fresh and funny. He currently stands at over 30,000 plus subscribers, and you should most certainly check him out!
Even if you don’t know who they are, I’m positive you must have stumbled across at least one of their parodies. The spoof masters as they’re rightfully called, are brilliant in their execution of parodying badly done movie endings, you know, the kinds that made you want to pull your hair out as you left the theatre. Branching out, yet another style of what can only be called genius entertainment- they have the Shudh Desi Raps. Check these out- especially if you’ve had a bad day and need some uninhibited humor. Just make sure you have plenty of time- because before you know it, you will be binge watching!
