If Buddy from Deck The Halls really wanted to pull one over on his frigid neighbour Steve, he should have added dubstep music to his Christmas light display. As if the flashing lights on this house aren’t enough to make you seize up in joy, the dubstep music adds a whole other dimension of ear-pounding fun. I bet his neighbour’s LOVE him!
The house is in Meridian Idaho and is synchronized with dubstep and other Christmas songs. Skrillex fans should fast forward to the two minute mark. While I loved the “Gangnam Style” lights, these lights definitely win.

If New Girl was actually a show about an Old Girl, our heroine would be obsessed with Murder She Wrote , not Dirty Dancing, and her best friend wouldn’t have a modelling contract — she’d have an unpredictable bladder.
This parody by AboveAverageNetwork re-imagines what it would be like if Schmidt, Winston and Nick decided to rent their extra room to a senior citizen named Muriel Rosenberg over Jess. The result? Nick is as grumpy as ever and Schmidt owes at least 200 dollars to the douchebag jar for his disgusting one liner: “You got some Schmidt on your face.”

Every year, Christmas lights draw a slew of people outdoors to walk around and admire their neighbours’ displays — but these lights, which are set to Psy’s “Gangnam Style” are downright hypnotizing.
The flashy display uses the roof, windows, trees and lawn — pretty much anything that can be wrapped with bulbs. Sure they’re nice now, until you’re the neighbour next door trying to get some sleep while people are raving outside your door. Still, they’re pretty dayam impressive.

Earlier this month we posted a humorous and thoughtful video by CollegeHumor in which gay men threaten to marry the girlfriends of men who don’t support gay marriage. Now gay women are taking their turn.
In a new video by UnsolicitedProject, gay women have a message for naysayers: ”As gay women ourselves we would just like to say to all those opposed to same sex marriage — whatever — keep marriage between a man and a woman and as a response, we will marry your boyfriends.”
Think about it. They’d be the best wives ever! They love sports, women and video games. While you’re dragging them to the mall to shop for yet another cardigan, they’re playing HALO with him and his cute buddies. While the whole video is all in good fun they make a great point. In the recent U.S. election three states legalized gay marriage bringing the total to nine — let’s bring that number up!

There are tons of useful tutorials on YouTube these days relaying everything from eye makeup tips to home construction. But occasionally it’s handy to have tutorials that strip it right down to the basics. That’s what the channel Let’s Learn Anything is for.
The channel’s tag line, which is “Let’s change everything. Let’s learn anything,” is just as nondescript as their video selection. They teach everything from “how to poke your finger with a wooden tooth pick” to “how to turn caps lock off.”
I’m pretty sure the makers of this video would be BFFs with the video cooking channel How to Basic, which teaches you to do everything from “how to blow up lettuce” to “how to quickly defrost bread” (the answer is stuff a match into it).

If you want to know what the end times will look like this video will give you a pretty good indication. Just replace the fact that they’re fighting over phones with them scrapping for the last food on Earth. In the video, the Walmart shoppers act like animals pushing and shoving their way to the box holding phones.
Go home and spend time with your family people — it’s the time of year when you’re supposed to be thankful for what you have! A low priced phone isn’t worth a broken rib.
On Reddit the video below was trending with the caption: “What Black Friday looks like to an Australian.” Have you had any horrible Black Friday experiences this year?

Everyone knows intense emotion and reality TV go together, which is why this week’s X-Factor will be perfect for the reality junkie. Last night, the top 10 sang songs dedicated to people they’re thankful for. The Thanksgiving-friendly theme was perfect for falling-behind acts like Arin Ray and Paige to get a popularity boost, but unfortunately neither did as well as they could have. Still, I found myself fighting back tears because some of the stories were so emotional — particularly CeCe’s.
While it was difficult to choose the best (I had a lot of favourites tonight), here are my top three picks for this week:
Carly Rose Sonenclar – “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland
Carly Rose might as well have her own reservation on my list every week. Her voice, which is so good I swear it should be illegal, was amazing as usual. I’m a big fan of this song already, but I think her version is better than the original. Her notes were spot on, vocalized flawlessly, and it never seemed like she was trying too hard. I also love how she always looks so confident and sure of herself in every performance, which is a rare quality for a 13-year-old. Demi made a bold statement by saying that Carly will be in the music industry for the rest of her life, and she got a standing ovation from judges.
Diamond White – “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion
Besides the fact that her hair was awesome (I love that she broke away from the teeny bopper pony tail),this performance was absolutely phenomenal. It was probably my favourite in the competition so far. She picked a perfect song to dedicate to her mother, who White said “gave her life for her.” It seemed like a genuine performance as White sang the song with her trademark powerhouse vocals and emotion. Despite being so young, she was able to pull off a mature song. After this performance I can’t believe she was kicked out in the first place. LA tweeted: “Shine bright like a diamond. @diamondkwhite.”
Tate Stevens – “I’m Already There” by Lonestar Read more…
“Hogwarts and Clorthos, Clorthos and Hogwarts, the two go hand in hand together,” Parnabus Jackson says in a mockumentary about inner-city wizard schools. I beg to differ. As a certified Potter head, I can guarantee that no school could ever come close to the magic that is Hogwarts. But if Hogwarts were a real-life school (cue the fangirling) what would it look like? According to Key and Peele, it would be full of contraband drugs like Pixie Dust and silencer wands. Really?
In Key and Peele’s mockumentary called “Inner City Wizard School: The state of public magic in America,” Principal Parnabus Jackson takes us on a tour of his wizarding school called Clorthos. Alongside a man who looks suspiciously like Mad Eye Moody, the two attempt to explain the woes of Clorthos to the camera. Along the way, they catch students in illegal duels, and spray painting on walls from beneath their invisibility cloaks. The whole point of the mockucumentary is to illustrate that the school needs more funding — but it just ends up being a total knock-off of Harry Potter and his crew. Although the video might seem totally hilarious to some, it can come off as offensive. Students from real-life inner cities cannot just poof away their worries like the kids at Hogwarts. Perhaps the mockumenrary is just a genius attempt to bring light to that issue. Either way, the actors of Key and Peele do bring up some notable points using clever Potter references. Dumbledore approves.
What I’d like to see is the wizards of Hogwarts and Clorthos trade places. Before we know it, Neville Longbottom will be as high as a golden snitch off of pixie dust. Now that would be something to appropriately laugh at. Oh the ailments of being a young wizard nerd.
It’s hard to fight crime when you’ve got sex on the brain. If Bruce Wayne thought a little harder about Miranda’s betrayal at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, you’d think he’d be hurt. Turns out, he would just want to go at it with her ALL NIGHT over again (bam chika wow).
In this sketch by CollegeHumor,
Batman Badman is about to take down the evil Bane when Miranda swoops in and stabs him. Instead of getting a couple minutes for her closing monologue, they engage in an awkward conversation about their sexual history. Superheroes can be confused to, you know?
The best part about this video isn’t the adorable cat playing the theremin (which is already pretty great) but the “WHA??” look his BFF gives him at the end. For those who don’t know, the theremin is an early electronic musical instrument which is controlled without physical contact from the player.
Condom Testers wanted
Well this is a nice way to recruit prostitutes… An add in the Chinese version of Craigslist, was looking for women to test out condoms. How would they test out the condoms? Exactly how you think, having sex to figure out their effectiveness. All the while, getting paid to do so. Naturally, after a few days, the add was pulled because this is clearly not okay. Although, the heading for the add is pretty awesome. Go what it takes to be an official condom tester? LOL
Two pelicans get private flight home
Hurricane Sandy destroyed a lot of homes and the coastal cities, but it also disrupted the flights of a couple pelican’s just trying to fly around their respective habitats in Florida and North Carolina. Believed to be dead, the pelicans got caught up in the storm and showed up in New Jersey. Once they were located, they were flown back to Florida to get back to their normal lives. I wish I could get a free flight home from the government, not fair.
Sleeping your life away
We’ve all wanted to sleep for days at one time or another, but after reading about this girl, I take it back. Nicole Delian, 17, has a rare disorder called Kleine-Levin Syndrome which means she needs about 18 hours of sleep per day. She has slept sometimes up to 64 days straight! Even missing Christmas! Remember this next time you think you want to sleep for days.
Talk about having beef
Apparently, some of the neighbours cows came over and started eating all of Justin DeLoach’s horse feed. That was enough to make DeLoach, 23, so angry that he shot six cows in the face. Like the cows knew they were trespassing… He was charged with second degree felony of killing or aggravative abuse of horse or cattle. Someone’s got beef.
Belly button ring rescue
This is my nightmare. A woman was swimming at a public pool when her belly button ring got caught on a pool drain. The fire department was called in to rescue her. Luckily the drain was in swallow water, but the pool had to be drained in order to get the ring out of the drain. That’s pretty embarrassing, at least it wasn’t a tongue ring…
Full time model and part time YouTuber swoozie06 reports from that dreaded relationship void called “The Friend Zone.” Or “The Friend FREAKIN Zone” if you want to be more accurate. After years of observation and a night consulting a team of Canadian cheerleaders, he gathered substantial evidence to let you know when you’re in the zone.
More importantly, he lets you know how a small percentage of guys can escape the friend zone. It’s very tough (probably one in 10 make it out alive) but his correspondents shared a lot of useful advice that I happen to agree with. Basically, you have to distance yourself and while you’re apart do super kickass stuff like working out and getting your career together (aka just do you). You’ll be irresistible the next time you see your “friend.”
Have you ever been friend-zoned? How did you get out?

We fell in love when we heard the boys of 1D sing their latest single ‘Little Things.’ But it was kind of strange to see them acting more serious than their usual playful and silly selves.
Thankfully for us, there’s a new clip for that. Documenting a behind the scenes look of the boys shooting the video for their latest single ‘Little Things’, we’re treated to play fights, funny faces and even some awkward instrument playing.
Here are some of my favourite moments made into GIFS. Enjoy!
Niall playing the guitar
In this shot, Niall is mysterious and brooding. Totally unlike his usually cheerful and adorable self. He just looks so vulnerable. Let me HUG HIM. (potadodoniall-1d)
Harry on the other hand…
Sorry, Harry. I don’t think ‘Little Things’ is quite like ’I Wanna Rock And Roll All Night.’
Making it in Hollywood is not easy. From getting your television show pitch rejected to messing up that audition, it’s safe to say that the City of Angels is not a friendly place.
After taking a class about the film and television industry, I have learned that Hollywood loves to recycle ideas. So what’s a better way to get noticed than to recycle already popular TV shows and show it off as something new? That sounds like a formula for success, right?
WRONG. From making an eclectic choice of references from shows like Girls, Breaking Bad, Entourage, Louie and Flight of the Conchords, it appears that Hollywood JUST isn’t buying it. You can’t recycle TV shows that are still on the air!!
Personally, I think they should have went all out and combined all of them together.
So how about this? Two struggling (and awkward, because that’s what Hollywood seems to like these days) screenwriters in Los Angeles who break out into song while selling plant-based narcotics to make some money. Add in British accents, and you’ll be rolling in money in NO TIME.
It’s safe to say that Ed Sheeran’s video for “Give Me Love” was bound to spark curiosity and outrageous fangirl fights. After looking through the comments under the video, I realized a few things:
1. People don’t know who Isabel Lucas is.
2. Isabel Lucas is not in fact Lana del Rey.
3. Ed Sheeran is some form of “ginger jesus.”
Despite all the scrambling to figure out who the angel is in the video, the comments do provide a lot of insight. The “Give Me Love” video lead fans to debate the true meaning of the video. Some say it’s about an angel who acts as cupid to help people find love. Others say she’s Natalie Portman’s doppelganger in “Black Swan.” Despite the cringe-worthy scene in which the angel pulls a feather out of her back, Ed Sheeran has helped create a lovely video that sparked discussion on some pretty deep topics.
But enough of the serious stuff. Here are 15 hilarious (and some sweet) comments via the Sheeran fandom.
Kansas City Chiefs’ safety Eric Berry is absolutely terrified of horses. The poor guy flipped out when Warpaint, the team’s horse mascot trotted out during a recent game.
“I’ll wait ’til the horse pass,” Berry says in the clip below upon seeing the mascot. ”I don’t mess with horses, bro. He might come over here and throw a tantrum.”
Turns out, an irrational fear of horses is a real condition called equinophobia, which draws anxiety, nausea and crying when confronted with the animal.
He’s not the only one. Kristen Stewart discussed her fear of horses while filming Snow White and the Huntsman. According to Huffington Post, the fear stemmed from a riding injury she sustained as a kid.

Last week for the first time in television history, singers were ranked based on their popularity, with Cece Frey coming in last and Tate Stevens at number one. With these rankings made public, the pressure was on for contestants like Arin Ray and Paige Thomas, who are falling behind.
This week was “Divas Week,” which will probably end up being one of the most favoured weeks of the season. Who can argue with a group of talented singers paying homage to some of the best songs of the twentieth century?
Here are my top three picks for this episode:
Fifth Harmony – “Hero” by Mariah Carey
With a name much better than 1432, Fifth Harmony rocked one of Carey’s best songs. Fifth Harmony doesn’t use dancers like the other contestants seemed to have done at least once. They play the “innocent girls just here to sing, not dance” persona really well. While LA thought they struggled a little at the beginning, they found their voice later on.
Carly Rose Sonenclar – “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion
[Insert obligatory Titanic joke here] Carly Rose, keeping with her popularity streak and love from judges since day one, carried this song with what seemed to be no effort. Her vintage gown was perfect for the haunting, ghostly feel of the melody. I forgot she’s 13-years-old because of the control she has over her audience. Her judge, Britney Spears, definitely has a competitive edge thanks to her. “I don’t believe you’re a human being. Because you can’t do that at 13,” Simon said in awe.
