Nice Try ... I guess
Earlier this week we learned that Jerry O’Connell teamed up with Funny or Die to spoof the art installation/performance art thing that Shia LaBeouf is doing here in LA this week called #IAMSORRY. Today we get to see how that Funny or Die spoof #IAMSORRYTOO turned out. Honestly, the idea of the spoof sounded kinda interesting when I first heard about it but now that the video has been released, I must admit … I’m neither impressed or entertained. Watch the video above and see what you think. I get that Jerry is attempting to lampoon the silly thing that Shia is doing but in a head-to-head match-up, I think Shia wins.
Earlier this week we learned that Shia LaBeouf, who has been acting a bit strange in public lately, decided to open an art installation of sorts here in LA called #IAMSORRY where he allows members of the public to sit across a table from him to shoe them how “sorry” he is. Today we learn that actor Jerry O’Connell, with a little help from Funny or Die, has decided to take things one step further and troll Shia‘s art piece by opening his own parody art piece called #IAMSORRYTOO right next door. Like Shia, it is believed that Jerry will make himself available to members of the public but unlike Shia, my guess is that Jerry plans to have a little more fun with this project. More »
"causing quite a stir"
Over the weekend a new coffee shop opened here in LA that looks exactly like a Starbucks shop except for the signage that reads Dumb Starbucks. As soon as word began to spread about this shop, folks have been lining up for hours waiting to get in and order the “dumb” drink offerings that are available. Starbucks, the company, is aware of the store and are reportedly examining their legal options and up until now, no one knew who was behind the shop … but many people started to believe it was a Banksy piece of performance art. Just moments ago, LA artist Marc Horowitz claimed credit for the project on Twitter … but he has yet to prove his claim. Click below to learn more about this … well, whatever it is and see what you think. UPDATE: The real person responsible for this prank is not Horowitz, it’s actually THIS guy. More »
U don't want to miss this
Last month we learned that the British boyband One Direction teamed up with Sesame Street for an upcoming episode and today we get to see a clip of the guys performing a parody of their hit song What Makes You Beautiful titled What Makes U Useful for the show. At this point, the folks at the Children’s Television Workshop have only released a short sample of the 1D parody (which cuts out RIGHT when it’s about to get good) but as you can see in the video embedded above, it’s a really cute song. The full version of this parody song should be made available after it airs on Sesame Street so stay tuned. As we learned recently, Sesame Street has been giving adults as much reason to watch their show as their target audience of small children. I know One Direction fans are going to want to see this parody song on the show, I mean … right?
Earlier this week, our dear Britney Spears released the music video for her current single Perfume and almost immediately, fans were upset that the ending of the video they expected to see what cut out of the final version. The music video’s director Joseph Kahn tweeted extensively about how his vision for the video was sanitized by the Powers That Be and he lamented the fact that his more controversial version of the video MIGHT be released in a Director’s Cut version. Yesterday, Kahn posted a tweet on his official Twitter profile announcing the release of the “Director’s Cut” of Britney‘s Perfume video, which is embedded above. Please enjoy :D
This. Is. Brilliant.
Altho Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago, I have some fun leftovers to share with all y’all this weekend. Jimmy Fallon had guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and he got them both to perform parody versions of some of our fave pop songs of the day in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve tried to come up with a way to adequately describe the amazingness what Jimmy, Rashida and Carrie came up with but I think I shall let the video embedded above speak for itself. Check out the video to see these amazingly talented people perform renditions of songs by Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and more. Folks, it’s brilliance … pure and simple. Jimmy Fallon always does the holidays right, watch above and see what I mean.
Cookieness Evereat vs. The Hungry Games
Folks, we’ve seen a few pretty good spoofs from Sesame Street this year but the Children’s Television Workshop may have just outdone themselves with their latest parody. Titled The Hungry Games: Catching Fur, the Sesame Street gang reinterprets one of the year’s biggest movies in a way that is cuter than your wildest imagination. Cookie Monster stars in this parody as Cookiness Evereat where he competes in The Hungry Games alongside Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita (who is a piece of Pita bread — lol) for cookie supremacy. I mean, it’s damn brilliant. Click the embed above to watch and fall in love.
Dang, does this mean I have to start watching Sesame Street on the regular again?
In the past few months we’ve seen some pretty cute stuff from the folks at Sesame Street. Folks like Jimmy Fallon, Lena Heady and Henry Cavill have paid visits to Sesame Street. Back in August we saw a really cute Muppet spoof of Sons of Anarchy and today, we get to see a new spoof that, I think, takes the spoof cake. Sesame Street produced a parody video lampooning the hit Showtime series Homeland and as you can see above, they NAILED their parody. Titled Homelamb, this skit pokes fun at every single thing we love about Homeland in a clever and completely adorable way. Click the embed above to watch … and love.
The New Batman & Lex Luthor Meet the New Superman
While the world still freaks about about the fact that Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman and rejoices that Bryan Cranston has reportedly been cast as the new Lex Luthor, an industrious fan put together a trailer for the planned sequel to Man of Steel that will feature both Superman and Batman in the same film. This fan was able to piece together existing footage of Affleck, Cranston, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams to craft a fictional trailer for the forthcoming film. Honestly, the trailer turned out pretty good … even if I’m STILL NOT ON BOARD with Affleck as Batman but … I shant digress. Check out the trailer above and see how things might turn out when the sequel to Man of Steel hits theaters in 2015.
