I’m still reeling from my Xbox’s untimely demise as its red ring status also means I can’t play Mortal Kombat anymore. Fine. Whatever. I’ll just go get my Sega Dreamcast and play some Marvel Vs. Capcom. I don’t need to see a fictitious character rip the spine out of his enemy in HD. I’ll just sick mini-robots on my opponents not in HD. No biggie.
Anyways, I swear my gaming troubles segways into artist Jonny Lawrence‘s stop motion video where his Street Fighter-inspired creation fights his artsy fingers (as for the connection, Street Fighter characters are featured in Marvel Vs. Capcom. Yay! We got there!). His video is really cool because a) all I can draw is stick figures, b) I don’t possess the patience to do anything stop-motion animated and c) it takes a lot of effort to create something this cool and interactive which I obviously have to applaud.
Maybe that’s what I should ask Santa for this year: a bit of creativity. And patience. Which I would like now. (Ha! See what I did there? No, you don’t care? Sigh.)
This is a much better alternative. Gifts inside boxes which appear as a hamburger. This would take a whole lot of gifts if each box has one gift. Depending on your taste, there might be even more boxes than shown in the picture if you want a burger with more cheese, tomatoes, or added bacon, onions, or mushrooms. The more fixings, the more boxes, the more presents.
This idea is really cool because it really goes to show how much you like a person. A lot of presents are needed to make a full burger. Shame on you if you only deliver a patty.
How willing would you be to go full burger?
If this was a short film it would be titled Paranormal 1V: The Adventures in Babysitting.
This is what happens when parents suffer from serious paranoia, and having too much time on their hands. This just looks like the poor babysitter tried carrying sheets and ended up appearing as a clumsy ghost instead.
I’m not sure who to feel worse for – the parents who think they have had contact with the paranormal, or the babysitter who probably has a huge bruise on their forehead right now. I wonder if the parents are planning on selling the rights to this “footage” to the producers of the Paranormal Activity instalment. Now that would be the only Paranormal Activity I would willingly watch – just for giggles obviously.
With party season almost upon us, there’s nothing worse than having to wait your turn for the bottle opener. This torturous wait has forced many a genius to find new and creative ways to open their beer bottle. From using the edge of a desk to a door lock or even one’s eye (actually saw this happen once), those old ways pale in comparison knowing that you and 23 of your closest pals can enjoy the fruits of your labour all at once with this 24-bottle opener. While imperfect (listen to those cheers), it’s still better than nothing and should be your next party staple.
Ever wanted to catch a cat red handed? Well, here is a fool proof plan to do so.
If you have a string, cat toy, and cardboard box, you are already on your way to trapping any pesky cats. It’s basic, cheap, and success is 110 per cent guaranteed.
DO try this at home.
I always thought fishing was supposed to be a relaxing experience. It would be just you and your friends relaxing with a couple of beers on hand as you wait for something, anything, to nibble on your fishing line. But after watching this blooper reel of Bill Dance, host of Bill Dance Outdoors, the whole outdoor activity is starting to seem less blissful and more stressful. The video is funny, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t be the only one now worrying about all the things I can (and probably) will go wrong the next time I go fishing (which in reality, isn’t any time soon).
When Russian dashboard cams aren’t filming meteors falling from the skies or people attacking cars, they also catching people doing some really nice things. This super compilation of good samaritans could make the coldest of hearts melt. There are people who pull over to help little old ladies cross the street, wait for tiny animals to make their own way across, and drivers who jump out of their cars to help complete strangers out of snow banks. It’s a video that should help you have a little bit more faith in humanity.
I’ve never understood the whole reading in the bathtub thing. While bubble baths are nice and all, I always worry about dropping my book or magazine in the water, forever ruining them. But Redditor crash-from-space‘s daughter had the most ingenious idea: attach your book to a dog leash. While this doesn’t prevent you from ruining your book with wet hands, at least you’ll only have water-logged corners as opposed to a completely soaked book.
I may or may not be an ad man’s dream customer (sup, Don Draper?). I’m one of those people who automatically starts craving popcorn, chips, candy, hamburgers—any kind of food, really—once I see it. It could be in an commercial, magazine ad or someone just sitting in front of me eating.
What’s worse than that, though, is when a commercial makes me cry. I mean, why would you go through all that trouble to make me emotional? That was 30 seconds (or more) of my life that was invested in your micro-story and you leave me at a drop of a hat. And it’s all so you can sell me something! Sorry, I don’t have the money to buy whatever you’re selling, but I do have these buckets of tears thanks to you, Mr. Draper. Can you take that as payment? Can you?! If not, why bother. Stop making me waste my feelings when they were safely tucked away. Or at least give me a reason to start cleaning my house again because there’s only so many time I can be all, “damn, all this dust!” without people thinking I’m some sort of weird hoarder (have you seen that lady who collects dust bunnies? I do not want to be on her level).
Anyways, here are 5 commercials that never fail to make me a little teary-eyed:
1. Thai Life Insurance
This commercial is a flipping emotional roller coaster.
2. Google Parisian Love
It’s a love story for the ages and it’s told via Google’s search engine.
3. Ikea Lamp
Dog: [talking to himself] You’re a brave dog. You can do this. Just ask if she wants to be friends. [To cat] Hey! Did you…
Cat: NO. GET AWAY FROM ME! [slaps dog]
Dog walks away.
Cat: Yeah, you keep walking bud—NO! GO AWAY! I HATE YOU.
Dog: I’m going! I was going to get a drink over here anyways.
And this is what happens when guys fail to pick up girls at bars.
Moviemakers GrittyReboots attempts to save the world from bad TV as they resurrect the dead to recreate PBS’ version of their superhero team. Carl Sagan, Mister Rogers, Bob Ross and Bill Nye (the sole living member of PBS’ golden era) team up as “some people just want to see the world learn.” The nostalgia is enough to get anyone to understand that television doesn’t have to be awful.
Though, admittedly, I like The Soup (or The Stew here). Can we just leave Joel McHale and sloths out of this?
Artist Aslan Malik turns his pen and targets North Korea as he turns the nation’s dictator Kim Jong-Un into Justice League villains. He uses the nation’s currency to create his “Injustice League” collection. Seeing as we’re not in North Korea, we can freely say that it isn’t too far from the truth.
Moms are the best. They make you awesome food (always with love), they begrudgingly do your laundry for you (but you know they like it because it means you’re back home) and sometimes, they’re a great source for comedy (whether they know it or not). Take for example, YouTuber pixelspersecond‘s mom who has never seen The Matrix before until now. Watch as she tries to recount the plot after seeing it once. *Spoilers: Leonardo DiCaprio makes an appearance. Considering how mind blowing The Matrix was back in 1999, she did a pretty good job. She even got the red pill/blue pill part.
Doesn’t it make you want to hug your mom and go watch Inception together?
Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox turn the clocks back, way back, to bring you a 1940′s inspired cover of Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj’s “Beauty and the Beat.” While the lyrics are too contemporary for this kind of cover, the difference in lyrical and musical styles is kind of cool. The singer, Robyn Adele Anderson, also has a pretty kick ass voice, not to mention very pretty hair. It’s charming, sounds great and is incredible unique. Who knew Justin Bieber was timeless?
With baseball season in already in full swing, my Facebook feed is full of the requisite “at the Jay’s game!” selfies as taken by people I barely talk to or know. It’s fine, whatever. I don’t really watch baseball but being at a game is pretty relaxing, especially when you have a beer on hand. I totally understand why the moment is Instagram selfie worthy.
But this one lady took the baseball selfie game to a whole new level at an Oakland A’s game earlier this week. She starts with a “hey, I’m dranking some beerz!” selfie, and a “Look how close I am to the field shot.” THEN SOMEHOW, SOMEHOW, SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE A SHOT OF HER BOOBS WHILE IN THE STANDS. YOU’RE SITTING BEHIND THE PLATE. PEOPLE CAN SEE YOU!
Apparently, the A’s won but who cares when shit like this is happening?
Thailand-based fedfe moviemakers threw out all the stops for their fake Iron Man 3 trailer. There are explosions, people falling out of planes and evil villains with badass facial hair. But really, the amount of thought that went into building the multiple Iron Man suits, cardboard city landscapes and toy action shots is really impressive. Watch and get pumped for to watch the real thing.
Also, don’t forget to read our Iron Man 3 review HERE.
Because I’m the most amazing best friend anyone could every have, I stole my best friend’s new phone the moment she got it and promptly locked myself in my room only to record the world’s most heinous cat ringtone. To be fair, I did start with a really cute “meow” but it apparently wasn’t loud enough so I ended up with a recording that sounded like a mix between a whale and a frightened horse. When her phone rang, it pretty much scared everyone around her.
That fleeting memory obviously got me thinking how this real life cat would react if it heard my monstrosity of an imitation. This kitty sounds so genuinely concerned for the phone’s “meowing” ringtone. If it were my friend’s phone, there’s no doubt that it’d be thinking, “we must kill it with fire.”
Today, is April 30.
Why is this important? Because tomorrow is May. What is so special about May especially when the weather refuses to be a friend to us? It’s the ramen noodle-haired Justin Timberlake’s internet staple.
Every May, Justin Timberlake circa N’Sync appears all over the interwebs. It’s all because he sang the lyrics “It’s going to be me,” but it sounded like “It’s gonna be May.” It’s one of those internet things that you don’t know how, when, or why it started, but since you can remember it’s been a thing, and it’s been hysterical.
So guys. Brace yourself for tomorrow because:
