With a land as magical as Disney World and Disneyland, some urban legends are sure to follow.
The most recent Disneyland urban legend to take yet another round on the Internet is the myth that if you yell “Andy’s coming” in front of Toy Story characters at Disney, they’ll automatically drop to the floor just like in the movies. While this is a great movie-to-real-life ploy, the actors no longer do this.
According to one Disney World guide in this video, Jesse and Woody used to drop to the floor but the parks have since changed their policy, so now the most that they do is freeze in place. We’re assuming Disney axed this policy because having their characters drop to the floor was scaring off the kids. Yeah, we could imagine:
Kid: Hey, Woody! You’re my hero! I love you so much! Can you sign this please?
Random stranger: ANDY’S COMING! (Woody drops to the ground)
Kid: Mommy, I think I killed Woody! *Cries*

This is Woody. He’s a toy hamster, I think. I don’t know. The website where you can buy Woody is in Russian and no, I do not speak Russian. He mimics everything you say. He’s kind of like a Furby but better because he’s not that creepy. Not that this is a scenario that I would normally imagine, but what happens if Woody starts mimicking the cop that just pulled you over?
Wonder no more because that’s what happens in this commercial! Yay! If only Woody could get you out of a ticket…

Because the world is full of people who make intelligent decisions (*sarcasm*), here’s a video of Youtuber WoodyGamerTag trying out his dog’s bark collar.
For those of you who are confused with what a bark collar is, it’s essentially a collar that shocks the dog whenever he/she barks. They’re made to modify a dog’s behaviour…although it sounds kind of painful and irritating.
Although I don’t have a dog, seeing from my cousin’s experiences, I think there are other better and painless alternatives to this method.
Woody Harrelson allegedly choked a member of the paparazzi outside Element night club, TMZ.com reports.
Harrelson, 45, was leaving the club with a group of people when TMZ photographer Josh Levine started snapping photos of the actor.
Harrelson then asked Levine to stop snapping photos and eventually approached the photographer and put his hand on the camera. When Levine told Harrelson he was just doing his job, the actor broke the photogs camera.
Another paparazzo on scene captured what happened next on video. Harrelson is shown in the video putting his hands around Levine’s neck and saying something else. The tape has no audio.
“Unfortunately, this is not the first or last time the paparazzi have provoked an incident with a celebrity,” Ina Treciokas, Harrelson’s publicist, told TMZ. “Mr. Harrelson is evaluating all of his legal options against the photographer.”
The Los Angeles Police Department is now conducting a criminal investigation into the incident.
“We’re going to present [the case] to the D.A.’s office,” detective John Padilla told TMZ. “With the tapes and all, it’s pretty good evidence.”
Padilla added that vandalism and assault and battery charges could be filed against Harrelson.
