The Memorial For Paul Walker Grows As New Theories About His Fatal Accident Surface

Tyrese Says Goodbye :(

It has been a couple of days since actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas were tragically killed in a fiery car accident Saturday afternoon and we are no closer to knowing the cause of the fatal accident. There is much speculation about what may have caused the accident … from vehicle malfunction to possible recklessness due to street racing. As discussion grows over the possible cause (or causes) of the accident, the impromptu memorial at the crash site continues to grow as friends and fans alike make their way to the memorial site to pay their respects. Nothing will ever be able to bring back Paul and Roger but hopefully once the cause of the accident is determined, the healing process can begin for the guys’s loved ones. More »

Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen have been busy filming a new movie together called The Interview and in between filming takes, they decided to make a scene-by-scene spoof of Kanye West‘s new music video for his single Bound 2. As you may recall, when Kanye debuted his Bound 2 video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, it caused quite a bit of discussion among folks here on the blog.

Check out the embed above and enjoy … ‘cuz trust me, you will enjoy. Love to PITNB readers Terry and kmw9260 for giving me the head’s up about this video.

Bless You Boys
Bendy Is Better

The video embedded above features a viral vid that has been making the rounds today and after I watched and rewatched the clip about 24,000 times, I thought it prudent to share the goods with all y’all. The video features the Purdue University Gymnastics Team in a lip dub music video for the song Tidal Wave by Sub Focus (a song I never heard before today). As you can see in the clip above, the members of the Purdue Gymnastics Team are extremely bendy … and oftentimes shirtless (especially the guy in the blue shorts). Check out the video above and see what you think (if it helps you can watch the video on mute). If you don’t have time to watch the whole video now, you can click below to see the video’s best scene in animated gif form. Please enjoy. More »

The Florida State University AcaBelles Just Killed It
Dopeness

Okay. I now know exactly what song I want to hear on the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer… whenever it drops, like, 3 years from now. The Florida State University AcaBelles’s released this video a while back and my life just got changed in all of the right ways. They covered Lorde’s hit Royals, and they just… slayed. I love my life, but I really feel like I effed up by not learning how to sing and/or make percussion sounds with my mouth. Peep the video for more!

Ryan Reynolds Gets Waxed In Hollywood

Not Bad

Ryan Reynolds celebrated his birthday this week with a little unveiling ceremony at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood, CA. As you can see in the photo below, Ryan proudly posed next to his wax doppelgänger which will go on display at the museum next week. Altho I’d argue that it is nearly impossible for Madame Tussaud’s to recreate true hotness like that possessed by Ryan Reynolds, I have to admit that this new wax statue of him is pretty damn good. Check out the photo below and see if you can tell the difference between the real and the fake Ryan Reynolds. More »

Watch: The Cast Of ‘Glee’ Pays Tribute To Cory Monteith In Song, Tears

Farewell, Finn
A Fitting Farewell

Last night the cast of Glee paid tribute to their late friend and castmate Cory Monteith in a somber episode of the show devoted to his memory. Earlier this week, we got to hear the songs that were featured on last night’s ep titled The Quarterback but today we get to see video of performances of the songs as they aired last night. I honestly have no idea how anyone in the cast was able to film these scenes. Lea Michele showed a strength that speaks volumes about her fortitude of character. Click the embed above to watch Michele‘s performance of Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan and then click below to watch video of the rest of the song performances last night on Glee. More »
