Watch: David Beckham’s Entire Soccer Career Recreated In Lego

"A Great Man"
The Pride of Three Lions

Back in May we got to see soccer superstar David Beckham play his last professional game ever just a few days after he announced his retirement from professional soccer and today we get to see a very cute little video that was made in tribute to his spectacular career. An industrious and very talented fan put together a 4 1/2 minute video that spans Beckham‘s entire soccer career … in Lego building blocks. As I understand it, the video is made up of 2,300 photos and has to be seen to be believed. Titled David Beckham, A Great Man – The Pride of Three Lions, this Lego-version of Becks‘s career is pretty neat. Please enjoy!!

Watch: Kylie Minogue Stars As She-Ra In A Brilliant ‘Funny Or Die’ Skit

"The Reboot gets Rebootier"
"For the Honor of Grayskull!"

Aussie popstar Kylie Minogue has teamed up with Funny or Die for a brilliantly hilarious, yet odd, parody video that features Min in character as She-Ra: Princess of Power. The clip is made to look like a promo video for a fictional live-action reboot of the She-Ra cartoon on NBC. Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen is also featured in the clip as Skeletor … but with all that make-up, you can’t even tell that it’s him. Click the embed above to watch She-Ra with Kylie Minogue … then click below to see a few behind-the-scenes photos from the set of this Funny or Die skit.

Emma Watson Gets Waxed In London

Flawless

Last week we saw a few surprisingly realistic photos of a Taylor Lautner wax statue on display at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Berlin.

It’s been pretty clear for some time now that the artisans at Madame Tussaud’s have really stepped up their game. Gone are the hokey wax statues that looked nothing like the subjects they were meant to portray. Click below to see how eerily lifelike the wax version of Emma Watson looks on display in London.
