There probably was something in Katy Perry’s bottled water when she made this syrupy-sweet California Gurls video.

Facebook falls for Onion video

Written by

Comments: --

When people look back at Orson Welles’ 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast, everyone thinks, “Oh those simpletons, they’d believe anything they heard on the radio.”

Then they laugh while they think about the man and the woman from American Gothic screaming down dirt roads in their Packard 12 with the kids in the back and all the farm animals strapped to the roof, running scared from the incoming aliens. Ha, suckers, we’d never get pwn’d like that.

Sadly, Facebook suggests otherwise …

The worst music video ever–Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor”

Written by

Comments: --

Although it is obviously the worst music video ever, Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” almost didn’t make it to Handshake fame.

Why would we want to subject our readers to the non-existant plot line? The headache inducing graphics? The agonized look on the “actors” faces?

Written by

Comments: --

Everybody knows that Molvania is the new hot spot for Eastern European travel.

But this “country’s” real claim to fame should be Zladko Vladcik, creator of the epic Electronik Supersonik music video.

Justin Bieber explained. Taiwanese-style.

Written by

Comments: --

Like most people I hate successful children. They’re always running around flashing their awards and telling people how they became millionaires when they were 4 years old. But I’m not sure why people hate Justin Bieber so much. They troll him on youtube. They try to send him to North Korea. They make inappropriate last.fm pictures and post it to his profile. Heck, they even start rumors of his death.

“Subway Etiquette” = The ultimate passive-aggressive note-leaver

Written by

Comments: 2

If Jay Shells were your roommate, he’d be leaving post-it notes everywhere, beginning with a whiny “hey man,” ending with a stupid little smily-face, and filled throughout with passive-agressive rage.

Unfortunately, Jay Shells is not your roommate. He’s the guy leaving obnoxious public decency posters on the New York subway as part of his “Subway Etiquette” series.

How to: AT-AT Day Afternoon

Written by

Comments: --

Patrick Boivin’s “AT-AT Day Afternoon” has been viewed 1,145,140 times on Youtube, which is about 1.009 million more views than M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, The Last Air Something or other who gives a shit. This is likely because the French-Canadian film-maker has multiple boats filled with talent, while Mr. Shyamalan has just one boat, and it’s a dinghy.

Anyway, to demonstrate his Mad Skills, Mr. Boivin has released the above video, which is a how-to, of sorts, on making your own AT-AT video. Much like the wacky how-to make an awesome photoshop painting we posted a while ago, the best part of this video is how I have no fucking clue what’s going on.

Why Predators will suck

Written by

Comments: 2

Predators hits theaters in just two days. Like every movie involving this bad-ass alien culture that has come out since the original Predator in 1987, this progression will serve as a regression for the series — in other words, it will suck.

Why? Well, the plot here involves the Predators abducting a group of earth-dwelling warriors including a Yakuza gang member, Black Ops operative, and other assorted violent human beings, and dumping them onto an alien planet. Home-field advantage — Predators.
