Who knew Simon Helberg was such an impressionist? In this video the actor does his best impressions of Nicolas Cage, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and others and they are pretty spot on.
In this montage clip, we see some of Simon’s best impressions as Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon, Howard, Raj and Leonard are about to begin a game of Dungeons and Dragons when Howard decides to add some famous faces to the game. From Nicolas Cage, which could also be a convincing “Voldemort” impression, to Christopher Walken, they are pretty spot on. I mean, if Sheldon can get goose-bumps from his ogre impression, you know they’re good seeing as impressing him is almost impossible.
A while back Kanye went on a two hour Twitter rant (below) about his
genius baffling idea for DONDA media. Well, we finally got a glimpse of their first project WhoDat.biz, which launched yesterday. The website claims to be the “Facebook of websites” and upon looking at it I had the sudden urge to pull a Sheldon Cooper by offering a look of exhaustion and ever so slight amusement.
The website is a stylized search tool to help you look up public contact information for your favourite websites. For example, when we look up WhoDat.Biz on WhoDat.Biz, it tells us the company is located in the Empire State Building and the email is email@example.com. So basically, it provides less information than most companies provide on their website. Brilliant.
We considered today’s best viral videos through the lens of wins and fails.
WIN: Teen magician is actually funny
This teen magician gets mega laughs from the audience, but it’s genuine laughter, not a few stifled giggles from his parents and their friends. The magician does the tricks we’re all used to: turning purple ribbons blue and splitting them in two. But we kept watching because of his sense of humor, which is basically in line with a young Sheldon Cooper mixed with Bill from Freaks and Geeks. The kid is also introduced by Neil Patrick Harris, which isn’t too shabby. [reddit]
FAIL: Reporter walks into a pole
This CTV reporter is chasing after a source who doesn’t want to comment on the story. He’s so focused on asking questions that he doesn’t even realize the giant pole right in front of him. Worse, his collision is all caught on camera and then put in slow motion for our benefit. I guess the good thing is, his source stopped to help him up. Maybe he got the story after all?
FAIL… AND THEN WIN! Baby escapes from crib
This mischievous baby was planning his great escape for a while so his mom decided to put a camera in his room to see how it all unfolded. At first the little tyke falls back into his crib but he’s more successful the second time round.
