Have you ever wondered what it might be like if the internet was a big store? Well, even if you haven’t, prepare to have your mind blown by Neosignal’s music video for “Planet Online” that does all the imagining for you.
Picture Google game consoles, a Facebook race track, a robotic Firefox, a trojan horse, a Twitter toy set, and more games of the internet variety. Okay, so I imagined, and I admit it sounds pretty cool. It also sounds pretty cluttered, and in all honesty I worry for the children of the future if they all became actually things. The whole idea is kind of disconcerting. If it were up to me, kids would continue to grow up with Hot Wheels, Polly Pockets, and yes, Barbies because, well, they seem less creepy.
Every time Facebook changes anything on their site, there is a complete uproar from users about how terrible the new features are. And, as I’m sure you’re all aware, the more changes they make, the more annoying posts you see about it and the more tours you have to take to get your bearings on the updates and make sure everyone and their dog can’t see your profile.
But what if this happened in real life? ExtremelyDecentFilms explored the idea in their new video and I have to say, it’s pretty spot on. Watch to see what happens when an unsuspecting guy returns from grocery shopping to find his home has been “updated” – without his consent.
Honestly, this video captures so accurately my feelings towards Facebook and it’s constant changes – they never actually fix an identifiable problem, but somehow manage to create ten more. I think for sanity’s sake we should all just stick to Twitter.
Oh, the Internet. What a wonderful world we live in where we can access vast amounts of information in a matter of seconds—and cat videos. Lots and lots of cat videos.
While we can post comments on Reddit, watch videos on YouTube, stalk people on Facebook and scroll through our Tumblr dashboards for hours and hours with the best of them, it doesn’t mean we don’t have a bone to pick when it comes to the Internet. From slow connection speeds to obnoxious pop up ads, it’s all #firstworldproblems from here.
Watch the video above and let us know if what your Internet pet peeves are!
I really like books. It doesn’t matter if it’s a long epic novel or a picture book, I just like collecting and reading books.
I think my next purchase may just be T-Rex Trying by Hugh Murphy. We already know that it would be impossible for a T-Rex to put/take off party hat thanks to his short little arms, but what would happen if he were to do things like:
1. Doing a Cartwheel
2. Trying to win a sack race
3. Trying to take a profile picture
4. Trying to reach for food in the back of the fridge
5. Trying to hold his girlfriend’s hand
D’awwww… If they were so damn scary in Jurassic Park I would actually feel bad for our T-Rex friend because he just wanted to hold her hand.
On our latest edition of Talking Sh*t, we talked a little shit on the hashtag.
It was a loving roast on the internet’s buzziest buzz word and we even created a human monument dedicated to the hashtag, which we obviously called the #HumanHashtag. It’s pretty much just as stupid as all those other viral schemes, like planking, owling and faux Harlem Shaking, so of course you’ll want to give it a try!
This is how we created our own #HumanHashtag:
Get it? Got it? Good. Now go grab some friends and make your own!
Make sure to share your attempts at the internet’s latest stupid stunt by:
- tweeting it at us @andpop
- sharing it on our Facebook page
- instagramming it to us @andpop
Don’t forget to tag it as #HumanHashtag because we’ll be following that too!
While silly cat videos and epic fails have their LOL moments, many videos on the internet have a whole other side that’s magical and inspiring. Imagine a wakeboarder doing a flawless midair jump in slow motion with the soft waves rolling behind him. Dancers strapped in LED lights doing parkour through a night market. Two adorable twin babies nodding their heads to their dad’s guitar. This compilation mashes together the very best of the internet from 2012 and it makes me want to take up some extreme sport and be all badass.
Snoop Lion did an Ask Me Anything (AMA) with Reddit the other day and among tales of changing his name to Snoop Lion and working in movies, he answered a hella lot of questions about smoking pot. Like A LOT of questions about it. One of the most upvoted questions he got was: What’s the most amount of days you’ve gone without smoking? The answer was 164.
After the AMA Snoop seemed to be feeling super reflective because he filmed a question for the world: “The better question is, when was it when you first started smoking? And how long was your life before I take my first pull? That’s the question I pose to you, Reddit.”
What say you Internet?

The Internet was fraught with overreactions, memes and tweets about the announcement that Disney is buying Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. They’re also making a seventh movie in the Star Wars series called “Episode 7,” set for release in 2015, with Episodes 8 and 9 following. There’s just sooo much to think about. Not just unending questions about whether the seventh episode will be just as terrible as the last three released, but will there be a theme park? Is Leia now a Disney princess? Will Joss Whedon sprout angel wings and become the new director?
The Internet wants answers now people.

Let the memes begin. Hurricane Sandy is already creating a “viral” stir that is taking over news feeds everywhere. It is a very serious storm that could cause upwards of 10 billion dollars in damage but that’s already being overshadowed by funny GIFs and parody twitter accounts. As we all know the Internet can be a dangerous place to find information. There’s countless satirists and trolls preying on the naive souls who will believe anything they read online. Luckily, if you’re aware that 90 percent of trending topics are bullish*t, then you’ll find them much more entertaining. Thus, we’ve handpicked some of the most ridiculous and not-so-important content appearing about Hurricane Sandy.

A while ago JamaicanBaconify gave us the epic “Gif Sound the Video.” Now we finally have the dramatic sequel to the first video, featuring the very best gifs on the Internet accompanied by the most appropriate music for the situation (ie. Spider-Man dancing to “Maniac” or a cat peering out a window to the opening them of Game of Thrones). It’s a comedy, a tragedy, a drama and a horror all at once.
Despite some criticism, the Thompsons have continued their quest to further dilute the intellectual capacity of television viewers around the world. On Anderson Live, Alana and her mother June addressed some potential beef with the Kardashian family.
Saying, “I had heard in the media that her mom is like not liking the show but I know on one of the shows that Kim Kardashian quoted a line and said Honey Boo Boo Child said it.” (OHTD)
It’s a lot easier to understand Kim Kardashian when you know she’s sourcing her material from a seven-year old. Proving if the world wants dumber television, the Kardashians are willing to adapt for ratings. Luckily, if you’re having trouble Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is the television equivalent to failing a few grades. Kris Jenner may have to accept that the world has a new guilty pleasure and even her own daughter is a fan. In this clip you can see Honey Boo Boo telling the world to “redneck-inize” that she’s watching.
The Internet community came up with such an Internet-y response to the whole Invisible Obama thing that debuted at last night’s GOP convention. Of course, Clint Eastwood stole the spotlight with his speech, in which he had an entire conversation with an empty chair he referred to as Barack Obama.
The Internet quickly came up with the Twitter account @InvisibleObama and soon after developed the new viral photo craze called “Eastwooding.” All you have to do is point to an empty chair — oh sorry — a chair occupied by Invisible Obama. Congratulations! You are Eastwooding.

Every so often when you’re watching a completely normal video on YouTube, you scroll down and read a light-over-your-head EPIPHANY-worthy comment that changes everything about your whole perception of the clip.
After reading these particular comments, I’m never going to think of these celebrities in the same way again. Drake is a rake. Katy Perry is a beloved crackhead (who we love). And a member of Walk off the Earth is a sea captain (see it?). Mind blown. [Source]

The day has come upon us fellow Pinterest users, when the men of the Internet challenge our fortress. Look at them uniting, the trolls, ninja cats, and every other outdated meme, riding to the music of Nyan. The only safe-haven for crafty girls who don’t want to take their tops off is coming under attack from the rest of the Internet. They’ve already invaded YouTube and Tumblr, but Pinterest must protect it’s homepage.
Pull out your Etsy glue guns, fishtail braid every hairstyle you see in sight, take photo bombs and by George, throw every superfood you have at them.
Pinterest will live to see another day. [Source]
Meet Huug Bosse.
After having a hip surgery three years ago, he hasn’t been able to stop laughing. Of all the horrible side effects that can come from operations, this one isn’t particularly the worst.
In fact, I find him incredibly endearing. Just seeing him hug Ernie like an infant was just too adorable for me.
Too bad his wife seems so grumpy.
Yes this is cute. There is something absolutely adorable about cute baby goats jumping. See below and you will understand.
This meme has proven it’s staying power with nearly a full month of Shit various people say. By now, virtually every nationality and sexual orientation has been lampooned in just under two minutes on youtube. Shit Girls Say has trended on twitter and it’s been shared on millions of Facebook pages, yet it seems the world is still craving more.
In fact, it’s so widely popular that people are starting to parody what is being said about the videos. This particular video is appropriately titled “Shit Girls Say, About Shit Girls Say” and features two incredibly masculine gentleman making fun of the meme.
Which begs the question: is this fad ready to die? Or is it just getting started?
