In what has become a smart marketing strategy, debit card company SpendSmart (formerly BillMyParents) is getting a wealthy teen like Justin Bieber to endorse them in a video series called “Real Talk” in which he offers financial advice for other teens.
“You know when I was a kid, we didn’t have a lot of money, so me and my family had to watch the money that we spent,” the Biebs says in the first episode. “I learned if you have $100 or $100 million — if you spend more than you have, you’re going to go broke.”
Bieber is contracted to SpendSmart for 14 months and is receiving a hefty amount of $3.75 million as an endorser.
But this deal hasn’t always been smooth sailing. Initial reports have stated that the debit card company is loaded with hidden fees and don’t help cardholders build credit.
As cool as it might be to have Bieber on board, I’m still feeling suspicious.
There comes a time when you get to the weird part of the internet. Usually, this is a sign that you should get off the computer and get some fresh air. Yet, because that’s too much effort, watching strange videos like these will always suffice.
In this edition of weird videos, here is a man laughing without even smiling. This is creepy, but I just can’t stop watching…
Want to be the fastest person on the planet? Easy.
Just watch this video and listen to Usain Bolt himself explain his technique. With some practice (or hell, just wing it!), you’ll soon winning the 100m.
I particularly loved this quote: ”60m, that’s when I become a beast really.”
You may think he’s cocky. But honestly, if I was the fastest person on the planet, I would be celebrating like no tomorrow. Don’t act like you wouldn’t do it either…
It may not feature a silly horsey dance, but PSY’s new single “Gentleman” will have fans imitating his new move: pelvis thrusting.
With the beat sounding a bit like “Gangnam Style”, the South Korean superstar’s new song doesn’t take itself seriously. As the video shows a very ironic turn of events, it shows PSY performing some “un-gentlemanly” tasks like speeding up a woman’s treadmill and causing a ruckus everywhere he goes.
This song is slowly creeping up on me. I think with a couple more listens in, I’ll be obsessed.
What do you think?
P.S . Be sure to check out appearances by the yellow-outfitted guy from the “Gangnam Style” video!
Not everyone enjoys working customer service. But for Willie the Walmart greeter, the job seems absolutely perfect for him! Greeting guests with a fist pump and a loud “BAM!”, he is a favourite among those who frequent the Walmart in which he works.
I also think “BAM!” should be dubbed as the only appropriate way to answer all questions.
–”How are you doing today?”
–What are you going to do tonight?!”
See, it’s awesome. And this man deserves a raise for his enthusiasm.
This Japanese coat will make sure you never feel lonely again.
Designed by Japanese students, the Riajyuu Coat has answered the prayers of those singletons who love to cuddle but no one to cuddle with. For any lonely person wearing this coat, it’ll feel like they’re being hugged from behind thanks to the coat’s built-in belt. Headphones can be hooked up to the coat for the full “girlfriend” experience as it plays recordings of a female saying things that you would expect a girlfriend to say such as, “Sorry I’m late.”
“The concept of this coat is so that everyone can feel like they have a girlfriend,” says Hikaru Sugira, the hardware engineer behind the garment.
The coat is currently unavailable to consumers.
This is truly adorable, if not slightly weird. How many people out there just want someone to cuddle with? Sometimes, an Ryan Gosling body pillow just doesn’t cut it.
The university the students attend are also looking into a kissing stimulator – that is a whole other thing.These people may just change what it means to be intimate.
For animals who spend so much time in water, you’d almost think otters were born with the ability to swim!
But like humans, they have to learn the hard way.
Watch Mollala the Baby River Otter take on the water as her mother throws her in the water to force her to learn. Yes, it looks a little brutal and scary. But hey, results show that it works!!
P.S. This kind of looks like the times my mom dragged me to the shower when I was a kid…
Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the cell phone, Jimmy Kimmel provided his audience with a funny yet very factual mini documentary on its history.
From wealthy douchebags on the beach to awkward phases where dads thought it was cool to clip those giant phones on their belts, the cell phone has certainly come a long way.
So with a huge percentage of the world owning an iPhone, Android, Blackberry or any other regular-sized cell phone, aren’t you glad that you have something to distract you with every day?
Happy anniversary cell phones. You make us happy.
Prepare to stay up all night, folks.
Because if this rooster’s laugh doesn’t frighten you, then I don’t know what will.
I get the feeling that this is a fake video. But because my imagination tends to run wild, I’m starting to believe that some evil spirit came and possessed this animal.
AHH. There’s nothing like starting your morning off with a good start.
For this cat named Zing, this early ritual comes in in the form of dancing on top of a dog’s head.
While this may not be the nicest thing, this dog certainly deserves a treat for being so patient. But then again, he’s probably just not a morning person and could not care less.
Fatherhood, you’re doing it right.
Showing his kids how to have a good time at the stadium, this father goes HAM and pulls out all the moves. From the robot to the air bicycle, this is just a great example of not giving a single f*ck at all.
Carpe Diem, folks.
There’s nothing like a good party beat that just gets you in the mood. But, getting too excited before the beat actually drops can actually make for a very embarrassing moment.
So if this ever happens to you what would you do? Would you play it off or act completely dejected?! Regardless, this may be the funniest video I have ever seen in a long time.
Eat your heart out Kristen Bell. This is more than your average sloth. This is a BABY sloth in a bucket, and I can guarantee you have never seen anything cuter.
Can I have him? Like, can I take him home and snuggle with him? No? Thats creepy? Fine.
I’ve never seen a wombat before in my life, but where can I get one of my own?!
According to YouTuber ajakwerth, this wombat named Douglas was orphaned and taken care of at a school camp in Victoria, Australia.
Calling Douglas his best experience with an animal, ajakwerth reminisces about the little creature:
“He once sat himself down in his own (very green) poo and had this nasty little stain on his butt…hahaha…he was just too funny!
I fucking miss that fella!!!”
While this video is three years old, the man in the video has since lost touch with the family who owns the camp and has been wondering about Douglas’ whereabouts. From what he last heard, Douglas was supposed to be released into the wild someday.
Just in time for Easter, here is a tutorial on how to scramble your eggs inside their shell.
Now I’m not sure how appetizing the finished product looks, but it sure looks like a cool and simple trick.
But while impressive this all is, people aren’t faring so well from this how-to video.
As YouTuber Jordan Edwards explains, “The egg broke in my sleeve.”
If you’ve carefully listened to any song on the top 40 charts, chances are you’ll hear a whole lotta’ product placement.
Analyzing the current retail value of various products name-dropped in popular hip-hop/pop songs, NYC digital artist Joe Sabia and the members of The Key of Awesome list out general prices of things ranging from electronics to luxury fashion designers in a fun little mash-up.
I do have to say that while the performance isn’t the greatest, you gotta give these guys some props, yo!
While they may not be as young and hip like we are, this video sure makes me think about the amount of influence music has on our spending habits.
The Harlem Shake ain’t got nothin’ on this.
Becoming one of the hottest new memes to hit the internet, the Japanese are taking “hadoken” (a special attack normally reserved for the video game Street Fighter) and making it a reality.
Seriously guys, just stop what you’re doing and start “hadoken-ing.”
It’s badass and awesome…unlike the fail that was the Harlem Shake.
If an elderly man practicing with nun chucks seems like a funny sight, then try watching that with some hilarious commentary.
YouTuber aamon17 caught this gem in the parking lot of his local grocery store. I can’t say much about this other than the fact that I died laughing. Someone give this commentator the job of narrating my life.
My favourite line from this? ”YEAAA Buddy! Time to call it quits. Look like the devil won this round, folks. I gotta get back in the car. Get me a Band-Aid. Shake it off. Shake it off.”
If you’re scared of dogs, then you can rest easy. Proving that dogs are truly man’s (or woman’s) best friend, this five-year-old girl is having a blast playing with not one, but 14 German Shepherds.
If anyone thinks these dogs are scary, they need to think again. If anyone tries to hurt this girl, I think she’s set with 14 different bodyguards!!
Remember how in high school the tambourine was the most jokes instrument because, well, who can’t play the tambourine?
You shake it up and down, side to side, and it jingles. If you wanna get creative, you hit the pad inside the rings if your tambourine is more evolved.
What I didn’t realize is that tambourine playing is an art. My years playing percussion in high school never brought me to this point with the tambourine (that’s because the snare drum was a lot cooler).
Some people clearly take tambourine playing quite seriously, and this man is one of those people. In this video a man shows us how real musicians play the tambourine. I’m not sure whether to be mystified, or fearful.
The youtube viewers also seem to have some words about this artistry.
You keep dancing, tambourine man.
