Joel McHale and Rob Riggle enlightened us with the BEST handshake in the entire world last night at the ESPY awards. We were expecting them to do the old manly bro shake but instead they premiered a choreographed number that isn’t the most efficient in terms of time but it’s definitely more fun than the traditional business greeting. They both have so much to teach us about coolness.
Here it is broken down:
1. From a distance of 1.5 feet away, grab each other’s right hands and shake back and forth.
2. While firmly keeping hold of your right hands, walk in a circle once while lengthening out your left arms out and dazzling with jazz fingers.
3. Release your grip and face each other. Bend down and extend your right foot out behind you. Grab the other person’s right foot and shake it.
4. Return to a standing up position. Sit on an imaginary teeter totter and take turns going up and down. The key is to show your excitement.
After the handshake is done you can exchange your verbal greetings (hello, good day, ahoy) and go about your business.
It’s a Seuss party! Green eggs and ham, anyone?
According to Perez Hilton, Taylor Swift is the most recent of celebrities to join the cast of the upcoming Universal/Illumination 3D movie, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. Swift will join names like Zac Efron, Rob Riggle, Betty White, and Danny DeVito in lending her voice to the characters of the film.
Swift is to voice the character of Audrey, the dream girl of character Ted (Efron) who is searching for the Lorax (Danny DeVito).
“Beyond the story’s indelible themes is an ensemble of unforgettable Seussian characters, and the title creature is both acerbic and adorable,” said Illumination Entertainment founder Chris Meledandri, according to All Headline News. “Bringing his sharp humor, enormous heart and deep conscience to the project, Danny DeVito epitomizes the Lorax, and we have an absolutely stellar supporting cast led by Ed, Taylor, Zac, Rob and Betty.” The site goes on to report that the flick will mark the third Universal-Illumination collaboration, and will be directed by Chris Renaud, who directed Despicable Me. Sounds amazing already!
Maybe we’ll get to see Zac sing a little “You Belong with Me” to Audrey! While we wait in anticipation for the film (I know I’m crazy excited), everyone can catch Swift on her Speak Now world tour right now! “It’s a love story, baby just say yes!”
