In honour of Valentine’s Day, screenjunkies did an Honest Trailer for the sappy yet timeless romance, The Notebook, because DUH your significant other will probably make you re-watch it on Thursday. They were really thinking of you the whole time: “This Valentine’s Day… Send this to your girlfriend so she doesn’t make you watch The Notebook again.”
I hear your complaints Honest Trailers but you can’t argue with this:
Yesterday we posted the first part of Zach Galifianakis’ show Between Two Ferns, which finally returned after a long but probably welcome hiatus (from the celeb’s POV). The second part features actresses Jessica Chastain and Sally Field, who braved the interviewer’s snobbish judgement and thoughtless questions. The best guest on the show is his Hangover co-star Bradley Cooper who gives Zach exactly what’s owed to him. [Funny or Die]
So many YouTubers are posting videos of their personalized “Harlem Shake” that I have no words to describe the booty-shaking madness anymore. But there’s a special place in my heart for this one by Matt and Kim, not only because I’m in love with them but because I’m going to their concert this weekend so now I’m extra stoked.
Please do this on Saturday, kay Matt and Kim? Thanks.
According to Wikipedia (the most legit source of the internet…) “The Harlem Shake” was originally called the albee and started in Harlem around 1981. The dance became mainstream in 2001 when G-Dep featured it in his music video “Let’s Get It.”
If you’re still not sure how or why the “krazy kids” are doing the “Harlem Shake,” leave it to dance instructor Professor Lock on mahalodotcom.

That old saying “love is a drug” is actually based on science. According to AsapSCIENCE, your brain on love looks a lot like your brain on cocaine as it acts on the pleasure thresholds of your brain. Short story: When you’re in love, you actually begin to build a romanticized view of the world around you and feel really good a lot easier.
“The Science of Love” explains why people fall in love with each other, even though science still knows very little about exactly how it works. You might remember them from their video “Amazing Facts to Blow Your Mind and “The Science of Morning Wood.” Though this one is timed perfectly for Valentine’s Day!
YouTuber Brian Spinney helped his pastor make this music video when he was in high school and thought the internet would appreciate it’s viral potential. We salute you Brian Spinney… The song “Rappin for Jesus” is actually pretty offensive but I don’t think he intended it to be.
The running joke online? He’s still better than Lil Wayne.
That said, it seems a bit fake — what do you think?
When a lot of people see Zach Galifianakis’ show Between Two Ferns for the first time, they’re not sure if he’s legit being rude to the celebs or if the whole thing is a farce. Sadly, it’s a parody but a wicked one at that. The show was on hiatus for a while but it’s finally back with an Oscar edition, loaded with the most well-respected nominees. On the list: Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Naomi Watts to name a few. Let the awkwardness begin.
Although Wiz Khalifa isn’t rushing to go to a lamaze class with his pregnant wife Amber Rose, he’s certainly ready to be a dad — and he’ll even risk personal embarrassment. “If it’s a girl we’re going to paint to the whole car pink,” he said in a new episode of ANDPOP’s Small Talk. “And if it’s a boy, we’re going to black it out like the President of the United States. And I’m going to drive it if it’s the pink one, so you’ll see me in a pink Rolls Royce.”
Turns out, it’s a boy! So you’ll see him in his blinged out car next February.
ANDPOP’s Jordan Bortolotti spoke with the O.N.I.F.C. rapper while he was in Toronto all about parenthood. It sounds like he’s full of wisdom: “I think to be a good dad you have to have good parents first. My parents raised me really well,” he said. “You just have to raise your kids like everyday is a new day, like learn with them. You’re not so much trying to teach them everything.”
Imagine if you were walking along the street, in your own little world, when out of the corner of your eye you see a stranger throwing his arm back to whip a snowball in your face. You shield your face to block the unavoidable sting of icy flakes but when he actually throws it, it floats in the air and drops swiftly. Prankster RomanAtwood blew up mini white balloons and threw them at unassuming strangers to see how they’d react. Most people shake their head and keep walking but a few can’t stop laughing.
Lesson learned for Beyonce’s publicist right?! Don’t try to censor the internet or it’ll bit you in the arse. It was only a matter of time before “Unflattering Beyonce” became the new meme.
The backstory: Shortly after the Super Bowl, Buzzfeed posted a few unflattering images of the singer, before being contacted by her PR person who requested the site take them down. Naturally, this led to a follow-up article, more brutal than the first, called ”Beyonce’s Publicist Asks BuzzFeed To Remove ‘Unflattering’ Photos.” it’s PR 101 that asking for something be removed will result in further publication. Just check out the Streisand Effect.
Even if you deny it, we know you have a special, hidden place in your heart for boy bands… I mean, who can deny the utter power of B44 and their spiky hair? In this episode of Talking Sh*t we go on all about boy bands, and not just the new ones either — we go way back to the classics including Backstreet Boys, N Sync and 98 Degrees.
True Story: In grade five my teacher allowed us all to keep a pet snail in a soil-filled plastic bottle for our unit on biodiversity. The classroom stunk but each of us were proud parents. The snail has tons of weird/trippy attributes if you think about it: Did you know they throw love darts at each other?
This three-year-old was caught on camera fibbing to his mom about eating red sprinkles. How do we know he’s lying? The poor kid forgot to clean up his mess and the sprinkles were smothered all over his face and in his gums.
“He has an amazing imagination and loves to tell us stories,” his mom wrote on YouTube. “I saw this as a sweet moment, something that every child goes through…where they try to push the boundaries to see how far they can go.”
Lesson learned. This kid has got to learn panic moonwalking like Nick on New Girl. Instead of lying and making up a story, he could have just escaped the situation altogether Michael Jackson style:
Jimmy Kimmel sat down to talk with kids about some very serious topics: Driving and money. Turns out, kids have absolutely no perspective of age, guessing that most people get their licences in their 40s, 50s and 60s. One kid even guessed tenty-eight (108).
When the late night host asked them what they would do with a million dollars, most of the kids opted to buy selfish big ticket items like big screen TVs and funhouses (with bouncy houses inside). Cutest moment goes to the kid at the end who wants to invest his money in his children and future wife, as well as charity.
