Top 10 Funniest Tyler, the Creator Moments

 
Who dat boy? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Funniest Tyler, the Creator Moments.
 
For this list we're looking at the funniest and strangest things that Tyler, the Creator has done. Although Tyler's lyrics are often described as "extremely dark" Tyler is way more fun loving and "intellectual" than his music would sometimes indicate. Therefore this list includes skits, pranks, freestyles and tons of other awesome stuff.
 
 

#10: Tyler Interviews Seth Rogen

 
When Tyler interviewed Seth Rogen for his Golf Media App, the conversation mostly centered around Rogen's show "Freaks and Geeks" (which Tyler revealed himself to be quite a big fan of). But it was Tyler's no-nonsense, to the point questions that truly made the interview fascinating. Hopefully, we'll get to see more interviews by Tyler. We'd pay money to see him become the new Larry King or James Lipton, especially with his penchant for asking…interesting questions. Overall, Tyler and Seth seem to get along so well that Tyler could easily replace James Franco as Seth's BFF.
 
 

#9: Rapping the New Dr. Seuss Book

 
Nothing could be further removed from the family friendly content of Dr. Seuss' children's stories than the lyrics of Tyler, the Creator. Although both are masters of rhyme, Tyler's lyrics are definitely not safe for work, let alone small children. However, when Tyler appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 2015, he donned a Cat-in-the-Hat costume and spat some lyrics from Dr. Seuss' book "What Pet Should I Get". Although he got off to a jerky start, after some coaching from Kimmel, Tyler soon ended up spitting some Seussian fire.
 
 

#8: The Greatest Cooking Show of All Time

 
Another product of his Golf Media app, the modestly titled "The Greatest Cooking Show of All Time" is Tyler's take on the cooking show format. Hosted by Bonnie Lalich, the point of "The Greatest Cooking Show of All Time" is to make "regular ass food for regular ass people". In practice this means that instead of cooking up complex and ingredient heavy gourmet dishes, guests instead make more everyday food. In episode one Tyler makes an appearance as "Mawrk" to cook eggos with cinnamon, which apparently tastes just like "Nickelodeon on Saturday". Tyler's appearance as "Mawrk" is punctuated by surreal skits, awkward silences, and Mawrk's catchphrase:  
 
 

#7: His Freestyle on “Sway in the Morning”

 
Rapper and producer Sway Calloway is highly respected in the hip-hop community. His show "Sway in the Morning" on SiriiusXM! often features freestyle raps from its guests – which so far includes rappers like Kanye West, Childish Gambino, and even Lil Dicky. When Tyler, the Creator appeared on the show (alongside Jasper and Taco from "Odd Future"), he was also challenged to spit some lines. Always one to deliver, Tyler improvised some lyrics over what sounds like a b-side from 8 Mile and had the whole room laughing. 
 
 

#6: Talking About Riots at SXSW and his Ban from New Zealand

 
During an interview with Huffington Post, Tyler talked about his performance at SXSW festival in Texas in 2014. Tyler was incensed that journalists and photographers who don't enjoy his music got free passes to his gig, while his fans were unable to afford the steep price of a ticket. Tyler encouraged the waiting fans to bust through the gate. Despite the fact that nobody was hurt, Tyler was later apprehended at the airport for starting a riot. The story didn't end there, though, with Tyler and the rest of "Odd Future" also receiving a ban from visiting New Zealand. As everybody knows, you're not really a rapper until you get banned by a whole country.
 
 

#5: His Elaborate Prank Call

 
When Tyler, the Creator was interviewed by Simon Mohos for And Pop, Mohos eschewed the usual journalistic interview format for something a little different. Simon got Tyler to prank call one of his friends, Shannon. Off the top of his head, Tyler comes up with a crazy scenario about a friend of Shannon’s who got hit by a bus when trying to get a bagel. Tyler invents two characters in this scenario: a hysterical shouting woman and a bemused laid back passerby.  Shannon seems to fully buy into everything Tyler says, even when he goes on a hilarious tangent about the "lil pants", "lil T-shirt" and "lil hat" Shannon's friend is wearing.
 
 

#4: His Vines

 
Back when people were still uploading to the short form video service Vine, Tyler was a prolific contributor. Although Vine uploads are currently disabled, Tyler's Vines are still available online, and still pretty funny. Filmed seemingly anywhere Tyler was hanging out or performing, from Asia to his tour bus, the Vines are a tantalising glimpse into the sometimes surreal and often hilarious mind of Tyler, the Creator that'll make you wish you had a Jasper of your own to mess with.

 

#3: His Acceptance Speech at the 2011 VMAs

 
When Tyler was nominated for a best new artist award at MTV’s 2011 Video Music Awards, he never expected to win. With his mom cheering on in the background, Tyler rocks up to the wrong stage, hurts his foot, finds the right stage, and admits that he never actually wrote a speech. Nevertheless, Tyler soldiers on, delivering an improvised one that is almost entirely censored due to profanity. And as the final topping on the cake, if you pay very close attention, you can see the exact moment that Tyler falls off the stage and lands on Kanye West and Kid Cudi.

 

#2: His Appearance on “The Eric Andre Show” 

 
"The Eric Andre Show" is notorious for terrifying and confusing its guests, causing many to question their safety, and even their very sanity, as they witness the increasingly weird antics of Eric Andre, Hannibal Buress and the assorted characters who pop in and out of the studio (and Andre’s desk). But when Tyler, the Creator appeared on "The Eric Andre Show", he made himself right at home, even managing to outweird the host at times. The interview also features a very special guest appearance from Tyler's dad.

#1: His Nardwuar Interview

Although Tyler, the Creator isn't often left speechless, he met his match in Nardwuar the Human Serviette, a legendary Canadian interviewer who's well-known for carrying out extensive research on his interviewees, often surprising them with obscure facts and showering them with rare gifts with special personal relevance. When Nardwuar interviewed Odd Future back in 2011, he singled out Tyler to present him with rare records, bacon soap, and information about Tyler's mom's Canadian heritage. Tyler's second interview with Nardwuar in 2015 left Tyler just as taken aback, as Nardwuar presented him with a barrage of gifts including more records and assorted random items ranging from action figures to bacon lube.
