Vroom Vroom! Get Ready for ‘Caraoke Showdown!’

Natalie Castillo

As if we needed another karaoke/lip synching show. But who knows, maybe this one with top the rest of ‘em! Craig Robinson of The Office, now has his own game show. It’s called Caraoke Showdown. In the show, Craig will give rides to unsuspecting customers, and then challenge them to sing their favorite songs, finish the lyrics, or act out the songs to win prizes. The show has half hour long episodes and was ordered by SpikeTV.

I mean, I don’t know guys, this could be an awesome amalgamation of Carpool Karaoke and Lip Sync Battle. Craig had his own musical sitcom, Mr. Robinson, which got cancelled, so now Craig is getting another chance to fuse his passion for both music and comedy. More »

Watch Kaley Cuoco Go Full On Britney Spears For Lip Sync Battle

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco had a tough act to follow on last night’s episode of Lip Sync Battle. She had to follow Josh Gad‘s “I Touch Myself,” where he was donning a Donald Trump costume and boxers made of money. He even swung on a giant toupee wearing wrecking ball, straight up Miley Cyrus style. It was a beautiful, beautiful thing, and I wouldn’t expect Josh to pull something that is anything less than ridiculous.  I won’t spoil the end of that segment for you because it was just the icing on the cake. Then came Kaley. The Big Bang Theory star dropped down on stage on a vine, clad in Britney Spears‘ green butterfly top, grooving to “I’m A Slave 4 U.” More »

The Trailer For The Duplass Brothers’ ‘Animals’ Cartoon Will Blow Ya Mind

Animals.

Are you freakin’ kidding me? Mark and Jay Duplass have done it again. Only this time it’s an HBO cartoon about what animals do when no humans are around, and now you can see the trailer! If you think it sounds like the kids movie, The Secret Life Of Pets, you’re probably right. Although this is called Animals., and it looks just a bit more R rated. So the question you’re all asking: which animal does Mark Duplass play? The Bedbug, DUH! Who else is in the cast? EVERYONE. DUH. I mean, Wanda Sykes, Aziz Ansari, Jon Lovitz, Nick Kroll, Molly Shannon, Jenny Slate, Danny McBride…and so so so many more. I can’t even…I have to breathe. More »

Seth Meyers’ Spoof Trailer For ‘Boston Accent’ Is A Wicked Pisser

Seth Meyers

Oh man. Oscar season is rolling in, and you know what that means, plenty of parody videos. I’m not sure anything will top Seth Meyers’ trailer for Boston Accent, which makes fun of basically every movie about Boston ever made, and is “probably directed by Ben Affleck.”  As a Bostonian this thing kills me, and it has it all! “The politician with the upscale Kennedy type Boston accent, the townie who says the word bro in every sentence, the hard nosed detective played by a British actor who’s trying his best but doesn’t quite have it, and one actor who decided at the last minute not to do a Boston accent at all.” More »

If You Haven’t Seen The Trailer For Jill Soloway-Produced ‘The Skinny’ Yet, It’s Time.

The Skinny

From the producer of Transparent, Jill Soloway, comes a web series created by comedian Jessie Kahnweiler, and it looks freaking dopppppe. Jessie plays Jessie, an aspiring YouTube star, a feminist, and a bulimic. The trailer portrays Jessie as the kind of gal who takes our anxieties out, rather than keeping them in. You’ll see what I mean while watching her crazy antics in the trailer. She’s definitely outspoken, and it’s pretty awesome. 

“I’m so sick of asking chubby white men with fucking man buns for permission to be myself,” she shouts at two dudes in the opening to the trailer. This may be the best opening ever, and a truth rarely told. More »

Ricky Gervais

If you didn’t watch the Golden Globes on Sunday, here’s a recap of host Ricky Gervais’ joke. And remember, Ricky isn’t afraid to shy away from controversy. He took a particularly deep jab at Caitlyn Jenner, definitely offending some folks. This is what he said:

“I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously – now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere…She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything.” More »

The Prototypes For The New ‘Ghostbusters’ Toys Are Here And They’re Super Rad

Ghostbusters

Awwwww yeah! If you’ve been worried about female superheroes being represented in the toy department (or the lack there of for films like Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens), fear not! Paul Feig, director of the new Ghostbusters movie starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones, has revealed the prototypes for the new Mattel dolls. There is a figurine for each main character–wahoo! Watcha gonna do now to companies? Can’t avoid a movie where all the main characters are female. Although a Chris Hemsworth secretary doll would be pretty amazing. 

Check out this photo Paul posted to Twitter: More »

This Rad Swedish Artist Re-Creates The Best Celebrity Moments With Barbie Dolls

Amy falls

Remember that time Amy Schumer fell in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the Time 100 gala? Well, Swedish instagrammer @itsadollworldafterall, recreated the moment with Barbie dolls, and did a pretty good job too! The costumes are pretty accurate. Kim’s fake eyelash game is strong, and the hair style on point. The artist even got their facial expressions close to how they were in the real photo. While Kim was smiling, Kanye had a stern expression, not finding the stunt too humorous. 

This insta-artist has captured some other notable celebrity moments of 2015 using dolls. The newest photo shows a naked Justin Bieber, as this was the year his package was exposed to the world. More »

Sacha Baron Cohen And Isla Fisher Should Win Couple Of The Year For Their Donation To Syrian Refugees

Sacha and Isla

They’ve always been one of the cutest, quirkiest couples, but we never knew Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher were straight up philanthropists. The Associated Foreign Press recently reported that the duo plans to donate a whopping $1 million in support of Syrian refugees. The donation will be split between two charities. Half will go to Save The Children, which will provide measles vaccinations for children of Syria. The second half will go to the International Rescue Committee and will be used for shelter, sanitation, education and healthcare for mostly women and children of Syria and outlying areas.

The conflict in Syria is going on five years now, and more than four million have had to flee their homes to find safety in nearby countries. More »

This ‘SNL’ Commercial For ‘Star Wars’ Toys Is The Best Thing You’ll See All Day

SNL Spoof

I don’t know if I’ve laughed this hard in weeks. We all know them, you might be one. Adult Star Wars geeks, who are manifesting everywhere upon the arrival of Star Wars: The Force AwakensThis SNL parody commercial hits the nail on the head, reminding us that Star Wars toys aren’t just for kids. As the commercial says, for ages six and up…”way up.” The video features two boys who are playing with their new action figures, who then get continually interrupted by the older fans who are trying to keep the action figures in the box, or instruct them on how they should be playing. Bobby Moynihan, Taran Killam, and Kyle Mooney star as the adult male fans.
