Watch: Hatsune Miku, The World’s First Hologram Pop Star, Made Her US TV Debut On ‘The Late Show’ Last Night

'Sharing the World'
Her US Television Debut

Way back in July of 2011, I was lucky enough to see the world’s first hologram pop star, Hatsune Miku, live in concert in her first performance in the US. Last night, Hatsune Miku made her US television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Miku is a completely digital performer and as you can see above, she does pretty well on TV. But, having seen her live in concert with my own eyes, I can assure you that video does NOT do her justice. She is an actual hologram and she is cool as Hell. Click above to watch video of Hatsune Miku performing her song Sharing the World on Letterman last night and behold the pop star of the future.

Watch: Here Is Video Of Jessica Lange Performing ‘Life On Mars?’ On ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

Plus, see what's ahead on this season of 'AHS'
Elsa Mars on 'Life'

The new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show premiered on FX last night and it did NOT disappoint, not one bit. The premiere episode did a really good job of introducing most of the main characters and it provided us with a fun musical performance by Jessica Lange. Lange plays the freak show boss lady Elsa Mars and on last night’s ep, she performed a cover of the David Bowie song Life On Mars?. In case you missed it or just NEED to see it again, you can watch Elsa‘s performance in full above. I really enjoyed last night’s episode and am very anxious to watch the rest of the season unfold. Click below to watch a preview video for next week’s episode and the just-released trailer that previews the new season overall. More »

Watch: This Beautiful Cheerios Commercial Will Likely Make You Cry, Doesn’t Really Attempt To Sell You Cheerios

Family Values
We all love to connect.

Cheerios has released a new commercial (in Canada, I believe) that showcases a family of three talking about how they came to be a family. André and Jonathan explain how they met and fell in love and then share how the addition of their daughter Raphaëlle completely changed their lives for the better. The commercial shows a few Cheerios here and there but the actual selling of breakfast cereal does not appear to be the main goal of this commercial. You may recall that earlier this year, Cheerios released a more conventional commercial for Super Bowl Sunday that did a better job of advertising their product. This commercial, in contrast, is a terrible advertisement for Cheerios … and a beautiful showcase for loving family values.

Watch: This Red Band Trailer For The Film ‘Dear White People’ Is Certain To Get People Talking

"You're invited"
Race Relations

On October 17, the film Dear White People will open in select cities and as you can see in this red band trailer (the NSFWness comes in the form of language, btw) the movie will very likely get people talking … which is the intent. What happens when a group of Caucasian students host a party that is African American-themed? Well, this movie will show you. I’ve been hearing about this movie but this trailer is the first I’ve seen of it. I can’t tell if I’m genuinely interested in the story or if I’m just curious to see how these racial stereotypes will be handled in this feature film. Have a look above and see what you think about Dear White People. Does this look like a movie that you would like to see in theaters?

Watch: Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Has Been Reimagined As An 8-Bit Video Game

This is TOO much awesome
1 Player or 2 Players

The brilliant folks at CineFix have put together a short video that shows what Disney‘s animated feature film Frozen would look like as an 8-bit video game and as you can see above, the video is nothing short of perfection. Even if you’re sick and tired of Frozen by this point, you have to watch this video to see how cleverly it’s been adapted into a fictional video game — that I really wish existed! If for nothing else, you have to hear the music from Frozen in glorious 8-bit form and just really respect all the inventive hard work that went into the creation of this video. Ugh, it’s soooo good.

Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Releases Bill Hader Promo Videos

Yes, please
He's baaaack

Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader returns to SNL this week as host of the show and today we get to see his just-released promo videos. Honestly, it sometimes feels like SNL is cheating when they bring back former castmembers to host the show but then I think about all the great old skits they can do again and I’m happy to forgive the “cheating”. It’s funny how I never seem to appreciate certain castmembers when they’re on the show and then I realize what I’ve been missing since they’ve been gone. This weekend’s ep with Bill as host will be fun, I can’t wait.

Watch: ‘Mean Girls’ Star Lacey Chabert Stars In A Movie Based On The Dating Site Christian Mingle

And it's called 'Christian Mingle'
Find God's match for Lacey Chabert

PITNB reader Rachel gave me the head’s up that Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert is starring in a new movie called Christian Mingle which is based on the dating website Christian Mingle and my head almost exploded from all the weird awesomeness. First, I’m really quite impressed that someone came up with the idea to make a movie based on Christian Mingle. Second, I’m thrilled that Lacey won the lead role in this awesome-sounding movie. Honestly, the premise sounds more like a movie you’d see on the Hallmark Channel but still, I’m intrigued. Lacey‘s character is NOT a Christian but she’s so thirsty to find a man that she pretends to be a Christian on Christian Mingle and then meets and falls in love with a Christian guy named Christian (OK, I made that part up but wouldn’t this movie be better if his name was Christian?!) and she has to keep pretending to be a Christian to keep him until his suspicious mother ferrets out the LIE that she is NOT a Christian. My guess is that the guy, being the good Christian that he is, decides to love her anyways and Lacey‘s character becomes a Christian in the end and the couple proceed to mingle … in the Biblical way (but only after marriage). DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE? I’m not even kidding, I deffo plan to see this movie. It hits theaters this month so … who wants to come with?

This Is What Nick Carter Looks Like In A Blue Thong

Yeah, I dunno ... just go with it

So, I guess Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys has a new VH1 reality TV series called I Heart Nick Carter and on the show, he was trying to figure out a way to lose weight … or something (honestly, I haven’t watched VH1 programming since the Flavor of Love days so I may get the details of the show a bit wrong in my description). THE POINT of this post is that in this particular episode, Nick entertains the idea of having the fat zapped off his body and for his consultation, he had to strip down to a tiny blue thong … which, of course, was the highlight of the episode. Have a look below and see what the self-avowed “Fatstreet Boy” looks like in a pair of thong underwear. More »
