Apparently during the rise and fall of the USSR there was a lot of sleeping and long bouts of kissing. At least according to this video from Russian creative group Fruktoza. This lego retelling of the Soviet Union might not be factually accurate, but at least it re-affirms a powerful truism: You can only be an astronaut if you have a badass name.
Check out the group’s YouTube site for more interesting videos.
Should we be talking about our first kiss? Is it “proper?”
Emily Post etiquette aside, this video is as boring as talking about the first time we did multiplication in grade school.
The trailer for AMC’s The Walking Dead is online and it looks very promising. It’s the same trailer that leaked earlier this month, but instead of the shaky handheld video from the crowd at Comic-Con, you can finally see the trailer in all its beautiful, zombiefied glory.
If the production values in the trailer are truly indicative of the show, it might just be another hit for AMC. The show has a powerful pedigree: Based off Robert Kirkman’s hugely-popular The Walking Dead comic series, the show has a stunning list of producers and writers. From the AMC website:
Crews’ excitement accurately reflects all the hype surrounding The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone’s new $82 million film. Dolph Lundgren, Crews’ co-star, stood behind Crews looking handsome and moderately bored. The scene was an accurate representation of the film itself, all sizzle and no steak.
Michael Cera is a one powerful geek. Fact. Check our latest feature to see more.
Music has the ability to connect people across cultures, continents and even across political and idealogical lines. Just remember how David Hasselhoff ended the Cold War.
Although I cannot understand a word of this week’s video, I get the message loud and clear: Singing talent, creativity, or even good looks aren’t always necessary.
The pilot for the U.S. version of The IT Crowd is less of of a re-imagining and more of an artifact from an alternate universe where everything is just not quite as funny. Maybe it’s because the jokes don’t work as well a second time. Maybe it’s the lack of the great Matt Berry. Or maybe the problem is that the human brain can’t comprehend why the Moss character (played by Richard Ayoade in the BBC version) is still Moss (played by Richard Ayoade again) in this Bizarro IT Crowd World.
There’s nothing wrong with Richard Ayoade’s acting in this 2007 pilot. He’s hilarious as always. But Joel McHale falls flat in the Roy role. And Jessica St. Clair seems to have picked up a few of the original Jen’s quirks, but only enough to seem oddly out of place when she does them. It’s no surprise the show wasn’t picked up. The show’s creator, Graham Linehan, however, recently told The Guardian a new U.S. version is in the works.
If epic is what you’re looking for, Dancing Pigeon’s Ritalin is not the video for you.
The lighting is lovely and the actors have, um, character. There is even a flame thrower. But this video makes me want to renew that childhood prescription to Ritalin.
