We’re seven days from May being officially over, but this compilation of the best Vine videos of the month is too good to pass up. From destroying children’s dreams to simultaneously fulfilling your own, it’s four minutes of hilarity served up in six second segments.
I have no idea what is going on in this video of a Japanese guy dancing. I feel so completely lost that I tried to use Google Translate to figure out what was going on. As you can see, that was no help what so ever:
Out of context, this video would be really, really weird. It all makes a little more sense when you realize it’s a conversation that creator Matthew Clarke had with his two-year-old daughter Coco which he then re-enacted with a grown man (David Milchard) playing Coco.
I don’t know what’s funnier: watching Michard say everything with a straight face or knowing that Coco probably said all of that with a straight face and without a trace of irony. Kids, man. They say the darndest things.
The past 24 hours have proven to be a busy news day for Canadian media, but amidst the Canadian scandals only one proves to have some international potential. Toronto mayor Rob Ford has been accused of substance abuse by The Toronto Star and American news outlet Gawker. Both publications claim to have reporters who have seen actual video footage of the mayor smoking crack.
It’s not like Torontonians needed a reason to be embarrassed by Ford. The internet has already made a mockery of him by turning a photo of Ford trying to kick a football into a meme and launching him as a viral video sensation after he walked into a cameraman last month. But we do appreciate that his current scandal has led to him landing his very own Taiwanese animated news piece. In it, the mayor is portrayed as running over little kids and partying with Toronto’s elite, which hilariously includes a beaver.
Contrary to this animated report, the people of Toronto do very much care about the irrational behaviour of Rob Ford. We even tried to kick him out of office for conflict of interest. Will this scandal, true or not, finally get rid of the city’s most polarizing politician? We can only hope.

Two men voluntarily put themselves through a labor pain simulation for Mother’s Day. Through electrode simulation, the guys were able to get a sense of what it was like to have labor contractions. Their wives looked on as they grunted in pain and deservingly high-fiving each other because yeah, this shit is pretty funny.
The paps caught up with West and his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian while the two were walking around Los Angeles (wait, who walks in Los Angeles?). What they didn’t catch, though, was Kanye West hitting on a sign. Unlike little old clumsy me who has walked into signs, fire alarm fixtures and sidewalk patio railing, West was trying to prevent the paps from taking a good photo of him by keeping his head down. Those pesky photogs did catch Kim trying to comfort Kanye who ended up flipping out at the paps because he was a little embarrassed by the whole incident.
Leave it to Kanye West for making me feel less alone in the world.

Dang, this pup has better moves than me!
Dancing along to Eminem’s “Shake That”, this dog takes booty shaking to another level. In fact, I think he’s SO GOOD that he could even compete with Beyonce.
Shake on, dawgy dog!
Like we mentioned yesterday, Vine is a cesspool for mundane mini-videos where once in a while, something magical happens. Enter Ryan McHenry who has used Vine’s power to bring us what the public really wants when we’re looking to waste time: videos of the Ryan Gosling refusing to eat his cereal. Gosling is like the 32-year-old version of that kid you hated to baby-sit because he wouldn’t eat his food. All you wanted to do was force-feed it to him because dammit, this disgusting purée of peas has to go somewhere and that somewhere better not be on my shirt or the garbage. Hey, if anyone is going to refuse a meal, it might as well be Ryan Gosling who’s beautiful mug looks like it was carved by one of the great artists.

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.

MadeManDotCom plays another round of Internet Games with New Girl’s Jake Johnson a.k.a. the lovable curmudgeon known as Nick Miller. During this particular round, Johnson finally gets to the role he was born to play as he imitates Grumpy Cat, which is basically Nick Miller’s turtle face minus the scrunched up forehead.
Also, is it just me or does the interviewer, Paul F. Tompkins, look like Paul Rudd from Anchorman with better hair? No? Just me? Cool.
Every segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s Lie Witness News is like a lesson in how to bullshit (badly). This time around, Kimmel’s fake news crew heads for the desert hills to ask Coachella goers about their favourite bands. Asides from Two Door Cinema Club, all of the bands the interviewer asks those cool musical festival kids are all fake. Watch as they lie about liking “Shorty Jizzle and the Plumber Crocs” (a combination of Bob Dylan and a polka band), “The Obesity Epidemic,” and “Get the F—k Out of My Pool.”
The video would’ve be incredibly depressing if it weren’t for the high possibility that these bands become a reality in a week or two (BTW, totally got dibs on the “Chelsea Clintons”).
When their surveillance video of a drunk guy trying to rob their store went viral, the owners of Kent’s Meats and Groceries in Redding, California decided to turn their lemons into lemonades by turning it into a commercial.
It’s hard to put into words just how well done this was because this YouTube commenter did it best:
Being nervous on your first day is common but don’t let your nerves get the best of you. Just ask North Dakota news anchor AJ Clemente.
The local NBC anchor was suspended after swearing on air during his first few minutes on the job. Clemente was caught whispering a string of profanities, including “f—king shit” via his lapel mic while his co-anchor Van Tieu was trying to introduce him to their Sunday news audience.
Clemente was suspended for his rookie mistake (always assume your mic is on) and Tieu later apologized for Clemente lapse in judgement during the 10:00 news hour. Clemente also tweeted an apology soon after.
As long as he doesn’t turn out to be this guy, I think he’ll be alright.
Everyone has that person on their street or in their apartment who lives alone, has multiple cats, and everyone silently is secretly freaked out by. Reading this autobiography can make you feel just like that person especially when you’re sitting alone at Starbucks cackling really weirdly because damn, Tina Fey really is that funny. That’s when everyone is suddenly freaked out by you and will probably try to get away from you. But again, this book is so funny, that you won’t even care.
If you’ve heard of Tina Fey, you know that she is one of the funniest women to ever grace television or the big screen. Her autobiography keeps on track with her witty persona and page after page, it’s as if you are being punched in the throat with her sometimes cheesy one-liners.
Electronics brand LG put a couple of monitors in the men’s washroom in order to test out just how life-like their new televisions are. The brand wanted to see if the new monitors can induce a, erm, stage fright in the guys who had to use the bathroom. At the beginning of each bathroom visit, each monitor would play the typical run-of-the-mill advertisements. When the guys finally start relieving themselves, the monitor they’re facing switches to a shot of two attractive ladies. It’s all LOLs from there.
May 24th has officially been marked on my calendar.
The first trailer for the final instalment of the hilarious Hangover trilogy has hit the internet, and it has everything any fan could ask for: Chow, cock fighting, Tijuana AND Vegas, car chases, and of course, plenty of hilarious one liners courtesy of my favourite Wolfpack member, Alan. Oh, and don’t forget the smouldering blue eyes of Bradley Cooper AKA the sexiest man alive.
If you aren’t looking forward to the film after seeing this trailer, then I assume you have neither a sense of humour nor good taste in men.

Myth busted: you can rhyme “orange,” or in other words, no one is safe from the power of Taylor Swift’s guitar.
