Behind every great sketch show are some not-so-great outtakes, that, incidentally, make for great behind-the-scenes entertainment! This definitely applies to “The Amanda Show,” Dan Schneider’s hit variety sketch comedy that starred Amanda Bynes. If you thought the show itself was funny, you’ll love these hilarious bloopers!
See this rad video for a whole five minutes of some seriously goofy outtakes.
For a highlight of the best outtakes, here are five hysterical moments that really has us chuckling!
1. Amanda’s ping pong fail:
It took her a couple times to build the right amount of pressure to really propel that ping pong ball! Luckily this isn’t a skill necessary to everyday life, because we’re guessing it’s way trickier than it seems.
2. When the TV missed Spalding:
The falling television didn’t hit Moody’s crush quite like it was supposed to, though he fell down just the same. On top of it all, you can’t see it in this clip, but Amanda Bynes appears to step on something prickly right after!
3. Amanda gets tongue-tied:
You might not be able to tell from the gif, but after botching her intro, she starts blabbering some glorious nonsense words. We’ve all been there, girl.
4. Drake Bell’s delayed reaction.
When Lula Mae, played by Amanda, hits Eenis, played by Drake, he waits a second before throwing himself into the door. Even a hillbilly should go down a bit faster when getting smacked with a cheese log!
5. Drake hits the wrong chord:
The dazed and confused look really works for his “Totally Kyle” character! This outtake, at least, is proof that Drake is actually playing the guitar — something those of us that familiar Drake Bell already know is true!
