That’s one way to get revenge.
During Saturday night’s Britain’s Got Talent finale, the opera duo Richard and Adam Johnson were in the middle of belting out their rendition of “The Impossible Dream” when out of nowhere back-up violinist Natalie Holt threw practically an entire carton of eggs at the judges table.
Holt, who appeared on the show’s previous season, told the telegraph, “I basically took a stand against miming on television and Simon and his dreadful influence on the music industry.”
She did manage to cover Cowell’s jacket in yolks, but besides a quick wardrobe adjustment and a reassurance from hosts Ant & Dec that the attack was not planned, the flying eggs were not acknowledged during the show.
The best part about it? Richard and Adam didn’t miss a beat and finished their performance perfectly. Good work boys!!
Now you just need to think of how to get back at Holt…
Women go through serious pain to become “beautiful.” We pluck, wax, diet and trim, all for the sake of beauty. Naturally, females rage about this all the time while men can literally put on anything and look half-decent.
While all this is true, and I agree its painful to see guys who have prettier hair than me, no on can deny what it’s like to see a guy who’s regularly well dressed. Basically, guys who dont live in over sized hoodies and sweats, and in actual effort.
Outside of the #menswear crowd, these men typically live in a fictional universe. Male TV characters wear the greatest sweaters and a lot of them seem to have an abundance of well-fitting suits.
Men in suits. Let’s not get into that shall we? Words do not express the effect of men in suits.
Okay, I am guilty of being melodramatic. Yes, there are guys in the world who do care about their appearance, but its always more fun to live in a fictional world where almost all guys are impeccably dressed.
Read below the 25 best dressed male characters on tv
Sebastian Kydd (The Carrie Diaries)
Sebastian always layers plaid and leather. His fashion sense seems a little advanced for his time, but it’s perfect nevertheless.
Blaine Anderson (Glee)
The bow-tie days are over. Everything Blaine Anderson wears is either too short or too tight, but he works it like no other. I also love his multitude of brightly coloured pants.
Kurt Hummel (Glee)
Kurt Hummel has the greatest, most extensive collection of perfect scarves, jackets, and dress shirts.
Damon Salvatore ( The Vampire Diaries)
The best relationships aren’t always romantic. Through film, television and literature, we as viewers and readers have come to understand the value of a great bromance. When two bros care about one another, continuously confide in and help guide each other, it is considered a bromance. Okay…by most of the internet it is considered something else, but that is another story entirely.
A story is not complete without a pair of bro’s looking out for one another and vying for each others success. One of the greatest real-life bromances of all time in my opinion is the one between Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Remember when the two won the Oscar together for the script of Good Will Hunting? If you don’t, go YouTube it, because it was adorable.
Other pairs that come to mind when I think of bromances include Frodo and Sam, and Merry and Pippin from Lord Of the Rings. Those who climb trees together and go to Mordor together are bros for life. One does not simply go to Mordor without their bro, durh.
ANDPOP has compiled a list of the 7 best bromances of all time for you and your wild imagination (talking to all you shippers out there).
Cory and Shawn (Boy Meets World)
Nothing beats this bromance that lasted a lifetime. Cory and Shawn have been bro’s throughout their schooling and into their adult lives. Their handshakes, heart to hearts, and epic schemes, place them high on this list of best bromances. Their friendship is one for the decades as they have taught us what it truly means to be a good friend. To love and protect always without judgement.
Phineas and Ferb (Phineas and Ferb)
Not too much is known about this photo except that, according to the Tumblr niknak79, this was a charity event where you paid one dollar for a strip of tape. The person on the wall is the principal. Just remember how many times you got sent to detention within the last month and buy that amount in tape. Voila, you have simultaneously contributed to charity and got your revenge.
A couple weeks ago songwriter and YouTuber brentalfloss posted an eBay sale to help him and his girlfriend move out of their place. One of the experimental items he auctioned off was a 3o minute phone call. He was surprised to get a winning bid of $817 but thought “hey, maybe he’s a fan in a far off place.”
Although it felt kind of wrong to be auctioning off a call for that much, he didn’t want to judge and decided to plan some special things for the phone call to make it a once in a lifetime experience. Fast forward, and the top bidder hadn’t responded to Brent’s invoice.
After checking in with the winning bidder about when he would get paid, Brent got the following one word response: “NEVER.”
That’s when things get wacky. NEVER TROLL A TROLLER.
Almost every TV show has a villain trying to stand in somebody’s way. Sometimes these villains are victims in their own right, or their sass is more funny than hateful Other times, these villains are downright evil and need a serious ass kicking. Personally, I love villains. To me, they seem more complicated and misunderstood than your typical martyr of a protagonist. Here at the ANDPOP office we decided which TV villains we love, and which ones need to leave.
We rated them on a scale of one to 10 — 10 being the MOST ANNOYING and one being the least.
Cassandra July, Glee, 8/10
This NYADA teacher loves to kill Rachel Berry’s self confidence, sleep with her students, and have regular meltdowns. July has zero redeeming qualities. Her burnt out broadway act persona gets no sympathy from me. She is hateful, harsh, and refuses to give Rachel a break. Some may say she puts Rachel in her place, but I say she’s jealous of her talent. July deserved it when Rachel finally stuck up for herself.
A, Pretty Little Liars, 9/10
“A” is not one person. A is a series of people who wreak havoc on the so-called liars Aria, Spencer, Hannah, and Emily. The A-team’s snooping and revenge tactics are more evil and scary than funny. “A” gives everyone a run for their money. She is downright terrifying. She has a psycho-killer thing going on.
Emily Thorne (Amanda Clarke), Revenge, 1/10
Emily Thorne of Revenge reps Amanda Clarke, who’s father was framed for a horrible crime. After her father dies, Amanda assumes the identity of Emily Thorne to seek revenge on everyone involved in her father’s framing and eventual murder. Thorne sets fires, ruins careers, ruins reputations, and turns lives upside down. Thorne has an evil streak, but her pure brilliance and drive to avenge her father has us smitten. We see her true colours when she truly cares about people — like her mentor Nolan. We love her evil smirk that tells us something important is about to happen. Also, we want her wardrobe.
Ellis Tancharoen, Smash, 10/10
Ellis is downright annoying and conniving. He proves no purpose but to screw up everybody’s lives. NO ONE LIKES YOU ELLIS. NO ONE. Leave. Now. Oh right… he is. Bye Ellis. See you, never.
Sebastian Smythe, Glee, 3/10
This warbler has a bad attitude and his sights set on Blaine. Smythe throws rock salt smoothies, makes fun of Kurt regularly, and we’re pretty sure he lives at the Lima Bean. However, his face is beautiful, his hair is impeccable, his voice is dreamy, his dance moves are smooth, and we’re totally obsessed. Smythe can sing One Direction and The Wanted and makes us swoon whenever we see him in that legendary blue blazer with red piping. No wonder The Warblers won sectionals this year. Smythe needs to be on WAY more often. We miss him and his bickering with Kurt.
Regina/ Evil Queen, Once Upon a Time, 5/10
After much time and consideration, we have not reached a verdict in the office. We’re torn. Some of us think Regina/ the Evil Queen is downright evil and conniving, while some think she is misunderstood and has good intentions. This is a hard one. The only thing we know is that she has amazing entrances (especially in that cape), and that actress Lana Parilla kicks ass in this role. The character is multi-dimensional and we just can’t decide on how evil she really is.
Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl, 2/10 Read more…
Sometimes the online pranks you pull on your older brother or sister can inspire a long chain of sibling rivalry. This young guy drastically changed his older brother’s Facebook profile, but instead of starting an online war his older bro sought revenge offline. With the help of his friends, he re-decorated his brother’s semi-plain room to look like a little girl’s room (yes, that means there were Justin Bieber-esque posters involved). His reaction is priceless.
Watch it here:
MSNBC reports Powell was fired in September 2009, but he still wanted revenge. According to court documents, Powell stayed active on the Company’s computer system for 32 days, in which he tried to get even.
Powell hacked numerous employee accounts, sent fake emails, but his real prize is nicely described by The Balitmore Sun:
“It happened one day last year, as more than a dozen board members of a Baltimore substance abuse center had gathered around a conference room. The CEO was giving a PowerPoint presentation on his accomplishments.
Suddenly, his computer shut down, then restarted, replacing the latest slide with an image of a naked woman onto a 64-inch screen. The board members include city officials and foundation heads and is chaired by Baltimore’s health commissioner.”
Although it’s somewhat sad Powell went through that much effort to get sweet revenge, it’s still a pretty funny story. Do you have a revenge story after getting fired?
It was recently announced that Conan was nominated for an Emmy. Conan will be going up against “The Colbert Report,” “The Daily Show,” “Real Time With Bill Maher” and “Saturday Night Live” in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series category. Jay Leno was not nominated.
Interestingly, Conan’s own people submitted the work for nomination, while NBC submitted Jay for nomination, reports PopEater.
Conan’s new Late Night show starts on TBS in November. TBS has launched a campaign to nominate Conan for an Emmy. If he wins, undoubtedly he is going to make his new bosses at TBS very happy!
Less Than Meets The Eye
Normally, video game tie-ins to blockbuster movies suffer rush-to-release, loosely-based-on, terribly-voiced products. In all of these categories, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen excels. Once the disc starts spinning up, you get the standard “voice-over to bring you up to speed” cinematics. Which would be tolerable, except Peter Cullen sounds completely bored out of his mind, and is just waiting to see the recording light in the studio shut off so he can go home. Not the best way to get the player into the mood for what follows. Although, it is an honest measure of things to come.
From a technical standpoint, Revenge builds on the original Transformers game, itself a tie-in to the 2007 film. There were numerous issues with the original, from poor environment detailing, shoddy controls, boring missions and a general lack of feeling like you are controlling a 30 foot mechanical behemoth. In Revenge, you have much better looking character models, almost identical in scale and detail as their movie counterparts, and you have decent enough environments to play around in. The most inconvenient thing is that you are always forced to remain within the confines of a pre-determined “action zone”, and there is simply no way to escape it. See a neat skyline in the background of Shanghai? Forget it – you’re stuck in the same quarter-mile block of identical buildings, fighting identical looking robot drones. Read more…
