Way back in 1996, MTV got Estelle Getty, Betty White and Rue McClanahan to participate in a parody of Clueless for the MTV Movie Awards. All these years later, that parody video has come to light to find new life online. I have a vague recollection of watching this parody take place when it originally aired live back in the mid-’90s but I surely had forgotten all about it until PINTB reader Adrienne reminded me that it existed. As you can see in the low quality video embed above, the Golden Girls recreated key moments of the movie quite well … and very hilariously. I mean, how funny is Estelle Getty talking about how she needs to get laid? Clueless may have just turned 20 years old but it remains the gift that keeps on giving. Please enjoy.
"Y'all should know me well enough"
The very inventive folks at New York magazine have done it again with the latest installment of their Vulture Remix series of videos. They came up with the inspired idea to mash-up footage of Miss Piggy from The Muppets with audio from Rihanna‘s song Bitch Better Have My Money. The result? Perfection. Check out the video above and try and convince me that Miss Piggy does NOT sing this song better than Rihanna does … because you can’t, because she does. Enjoy.
Ant-Man was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, bringing in $58 million dollars … making it the 12th straight Marvel Studios movie to debut atop the box office. For some insane reason, some outlets are reporting that Ant-Man “underperformed” because it was expected to bring in $60 million dollars in its opening weekend. But I think a difference of $2 million ain’t bad, particularly for a movie about a comic book hero that most people never heard of or are not a fan of. I loved the movie very much and I’m really looking forward to seeing it again in 4DX tomorrow. BUT I DIGRESS. Today, I’d like to share the Ant-Man trailer that has been recreated using LEGO building blocks. As is usually the case with these kinds of videos, this LEGO version of the trailer is really impressive. Ant-Man fans, assemble! Check out the trailer above recreated in LEGO and see much much cuter Ant-Man and Yellowjacket look as they battle to the death … in LEGO.

"I know I need to feel released"
A few days ago we learned the really great news that Chvrches have set September 20 as the release date for their sophomore album, titled Every Open Eye. Today we get to hear the first single from the new album in full. Chvrches have released a lyric video for the new single, Leave A Trace, which you can watch above. The song, I’m happy to hear, is very much in vein with the sound that Chvrches have become famous for. I absolutely LOVE the sweet, poppy, electronic music that the Scottish group crafts so expertly. If Leave A Trace is a sign of what we can expect when Every Open Eye is released, then we are in for a treat. Have a listen, see what you think. It’s a really great song, yeah?

Prepare the way for the Worldwide Trailer Release
In early June we got to see a minute and a half long trailer for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 … but it turns out that that trailer wasn’t the official trailer. That trailer was just a teaser trailer that was released internationally. The official official trailer is due out in less than a week and today we get to see a teaser trailer for the first official trailer. I know it may seem silly to have teaser trailers for trailers, and maybe it is, but I’m of the mind that a movie like Mockingjay – Part 2 cannot be overhyped at this point. The end of the Hunger Games movie franchise is nearly upon us … which is good because we will soon get to see the final movie … tho, it’s bad because it will be the final movie. In any event, click the embed above to see this teaser for the forthcoming trailer which we’ll be feasting our eyes on soon.
You're gonna wanna see this
Many of us still haven’t processed the fact that, in a couple of weeks, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will be no more. I haven’t watched the show regularly in a long time, but I’m going to make it a point to try and catch these final episodes, because I’m expecting some pretty great things. Stewart has been an incredible, influential and hilarious voice over many many years and I’m sure he’s going out with a bang. On Tuesday, he’s got a very special guest and I cannot wait to see how these two chop it up. Click inside for more!
"The devil has many names"
Back in December we first learned that AMC was planning a television mini-series that will be a sequel series to the 1976 film The Omen. Today we get our first look at the first trailer for Damien that revolves around the Antichrist child from The Omen all grown up. As you can see in the trailer above, this new mini-series will directly reference the original film — which I think is an excellent idea. As a huge fan of the original movies, I am intrigued by this new sequel series … even if the idea of an adult-sized Antichrist does seem a bit tired. Damien comes from the executive producer of The Walking Dead so on that point alone, it should be a quality series. Have a look at Damien above and see what you think … for he is coming … the Beast.

THAT MUSIC, THO!
Early last week we got our first look at the first footage released from the forthcoming return of The X-Files on Fox. Today, we get to see the first official teaser video from the show. As you may recall, the first footage we saw last week was painfully short … and this new teaser isn’t much longer … but it is longer. This new teaser is full of mystery, lots of shadows — Scully and Mulder, obvs — and the X-Files theme song music! AHH! Even tho this teaser is short, I got chills when the music chimed in. The X-Files will return with a short new season early next year so the wait is long … but it’ll be worth it, I just know it.

THIS NEW MUSIC VIDEO IS ALL THAT MATTERS
It’s been a while since we talked about Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and I’m here to report that he is still EVERYTHING. I just watched his Sexy Motha video for maybe the third time (maybe the fifth), and I don’t understand how this is the first time something like this has happened. We did have Stacy’s Mom back in the day, but this is very different. The moms in this incredible music video, made in collaboration with The Gregory Brothers, don’t look like Stacy’s mom or Stiffler’s mom—they look like your Mom. And my Mom… and me. LMAO.

Sexy video, Not-so-great song
It’s hard/impossible to think of a Ciara video that wasn’t sexually charged and designed to make you want to go to the gym, and/or take all of the dance classes. Dance Like We’re Making Love is really no different in terms of being incredibly hawt and a great showcase for Ciara‘s whole… situation. Unfortunately, I just don’t think the song is that great, and the video doesn’t quite do enough to rectify that. My suggestion? Watch this… then go watch Ride, which is what I’m about to do. Peep the video for more!
