Forget the Webbys—everyone knows that’s a glorified pageant. The Deep Webbys, hosted, as the regular Webbys will be, by Hannibal Buress, are where the Internet’s true power players get judged. “I think it’s high time that awards were given out for all the secret, illegal shit that goes down on the Internet,” Buress says, as he stands in a cramped, dark room between two shady figures in Guy Fawkes masks. “It’s a real … What’s the word? Not pleasure … but concern, to be here.”

(Un)fortunately, the Deep Webbys are just a figment of Funny or Die’s imagination, but the fake awards show does come up with some great categories, including Most Prolific Assassin of the Year and the People’s Choice Award for the Trafficking of the Choicest People.
