  • Newsman Brian Williams “Sings” Gin And Juice [Video]

    Jimmy Fallon previously revealed the hidden hip-hop messages in Brian Williams’ news broadcasts with his video for “Rapper’s Delight.” Apparently that wasn’t the only classic hip-hop song Brian Williams has been dropping lyrics from throughout his news delivery. Watch Williams and the rest of the NBC news crew perform “Gin and Juice” in this new video from the Tonight Show. Now that I think about it, I often get the urge to drink some Seagram’s gin while watching the news. I always figured I was just a raging alcoholic, but now I know it’s some sort of subliminal message. Now excuse me while I go in search of some bubonic chronic. I suddenly got an urge…

  • 22 Before And After Shots Reveal How Much Of Your Favorite Movies Are CGI

    When you’re watching a movie, you expect monsters and spaceships, and all manner of things that don’t actually exist to be computer generated. However, with the quality of contemporary visual effects, filmmakers are relying on computers more and more and real life less and less. Thanks to computer generated images, a director realize his exact vision for every scene. Buildings, trees, weather—all can be manipulated with computers and blended in seamlessly. Pretty soon, we won’t even need actors. Won’t be so smug then, will you George Clooney? Check out more photos at Business Insider.

  • These 90s Video Game Ads Are So Bad…Yet So Fly [40 Photos]

    The 90s were a great time. The fall of the Soviet Union gave us a respite from the threat of  a nuclear holocaust and offered us a chance to sit back and enjoy some video games. Between the NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, Jaguar, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Saturn, Dreamcast, and about a million other systems, there was no shortage of terrible games to choose from. But how did you know which terrible game to rent from the video store for $4 each Friday afternoon? You’d rely on the equally terrible ads for the games in magazines and comic books. Here are some of the best and worst the 90s had to offer. And check out more Video Game Print Ads on Tumblr. 

  • Could Sitcom Characters Really Afford Their Cribs? [Infographic]

    Due to the nature of TV, a large space is needed to film in, so sitcom characters tend to live in pretty big spaces. But sometimes the space is so big as to make it extremely difficult to suspend disbelief. This infographic takes 15 TV characters from current and classic shows and ranks their ability to pay for their homes. Did you believe Al Bundy could afford his two-story, 3 bedroom house on his shoe salesman salary? Not even close. And Danny Tanner, the happiest widower on TV, paying for that giant house in San Francisco for his 3 daughters and 2 best friends as host of a local morning show? They’d be on the street in no time!

  • Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Interview For Workaholics [Video]

    In the best ever ad that’s not really an ad at all, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen interview to be the new cubicle-mate of Workaholics’ Adam, Ders, and Blake at TelAmeriCorp. The hilarious interview, filled with filthy language and blatant homoeroticism, is actually funnier than most of the current season of the show. And you don’t even realize that the segment is to advertise for the upcoming movie “Neighbors” until the very end. This is how advertising should be done.

  • Super Mario Theme Played On Wine Glasses And A Frying Pan [Video]

  • New Meme Alert: Hustle Man [25 Photos]

    The ultra-popular Humans of New York always features a picture of someone on the street of NYC along with a touching if not overly-sappy diatribe about lost love, or finding inspiration, or some other nonsense. Until today. Today we were gifted Hustle Man. His words were succinct yet powerful: ”I’m Hustle Man! That’s all you need to know.” Hustle Man is our new hero and we’re not the only ones. These pictures have been popping up in the Facebook comments for Humans of New York over the last few hours. Check out more of them on Facebook. 

  • Videogame Characters As Classic Japanese Woodblock Art

    Ukiyo-e Heroes began when illustrator and gamer Jed Henry contacted Tokyo-based carver and printer Dave Bull. Bull has spent years in Japan learning the classic art of woodblock prints.

When Henry shared his idea of combining contemporary videogame characters with the Ukiyo style of woodblock prints, Ukiyo-e Heroes was born.

  • Behind The Scenes Photos Of James Franco, Jason Segel, And Seth Rogen When They Were Teens [17 Photos]

    From 1999-2000, NBC aired “Freaks and Geeks,” a high school comedy-drama set in the early 80s. The series was created by Paul Feig, who went on to direct “Bridesmaids,” and produced by Judd Apatow, who has made pretty much every comedy blockbuster of the last 15 years. The short-lived show is most remembered, though, for the “Freaks,” including James Franco, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen. It was the first time many of us saw these actors, and nobody could guess the huge stars they would become after appearing on a show that lasted just 18 episodes.

  • 1 Star Amazon Reviews On Movie Posters Are Hilarious [25 Photos]

    Remember the days when film reviews were written by critics who were eloquent writers, imparting knowledge along with their well though out opinions? Lame. Thanks to the Internet, we can all voice our inane opinions and plaster reviews on sites like Amazon while we’re perched atop our toilets, dropping a deuce. In fact, as I write this piece about the lack of professionalism of Amazon users, I am sans pants and drinking a beer. But who cares? These reviews may not have the insight of a James Agee piece, but they’re certainly a hell of a lot more entertaining to read. For more great movie posters, follow “Awful Reviews” on Facebook.

  • Three Students transformed a 3-D Printer into a Tattoo Machine

    Three French design students participating in a workshophosted by ENSCI les Ateliers, a famous design school in Paris, were invited paricipants to spend eight hours transforming something in the public domain into another use entirely. They opted to take a 3-D printer and make it into a tattoo artist. The brilliant out-of-the-box thinking is just once of many feats 3-D printers will be capable of in the future. Think of it, perfect geometric shapes and circles could be the future of body ink. 3D PRINTER X TATTOO MACHINE / EP 02 from appropriate audiences on Vimeo.

    Jimmy and Anne Hathaway team up to perform rap hits like “Gin and Juice,” “In Da Club,” and “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” with a Broadway twist.

  • The Red Band Trailer for “Neighbors” is Robert De Nirific

    The redband trailer for the upcoming comedy, Neighbors looks hilariously filthy to say the least.

Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne are ready to start their new family when a fraternity moves in next door. After a mishap involving the poilice turns their relationship sour, Efron and Franco start pulling pranks on Rogan and his family, only to be payed back by Rogan.

  • Watch Mike Judge’s New Show “Silicon Valley” On YouTube [Video]

    The nice folks at HBO have decided to save us cheapskates from having to pirate Mike Judge’s new comedy “Silicon Valley” by offering the first episode for free on YouTube.

It’s that guy from that thing…” So watch the first episode, contemplate buying future episodes, then return to downloading from shady sites and wonder why your computer is overrun with malware, you bum.

  • 30 Nerdy Cartoons Funny To Non Nerds

    Graphic designer and cartoonist Ed Harrington creates cartoons using nerdy sci-fi icons from Star Wars, Alien, Star Trek, Predator, etc. and places that you don’t have to be a nerd to enjoy. Or maybe the fact that we laugh at these means that we, just like the students at Adams College at the end of “Revenge of the Nerds,” can find the nerd in all of us and unite and embrace while Queen’s “We are the Champions” plays. Whatever it means, there’s no denying these are funny. See the rest of Ed Harrington’s work at Ed Harrington Illustration and Instagram.

  • Bruce Lee Revealed as Mystery Character in Upcoming UFC Video Game

    Last week EA teased the nation with a series of clues for a mystery fighter in their upcoming UFC game. GameStop stores hinted at the fighter with various teaser posters which ultimately spilled the beans. The most notable, a yellow poster with a verticle black stripe down the left side a piece of the iconic jumpsuit worn by Bruce Lee in “Game of Death” then brought back to life by Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill”. Dana White had this to say about the martial arts legend in an interview with Fight Times in 2004, “Actually, the father of mixed martial arts, if you will, was Bruce Lee. If you look at the way Bruce Lee trained, the way he fought, and many of the things he wrote, he said the perfect style was no style. You take a little something from everything. You take the good things from every different discipline, use what works, and you throw the rest away.” The game is set for release in Spring 2014 for the Xbox One and Playstation 4.

  • If Today’s Pop Stars Were In Retro Ads [21 Photos]

    Celebrities have always been open to endorsing pretty much anything as long as the price is right. It’s a long-standing tradition that still stands today, such as Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres’ line of baby clothes, Rolling Stones guitarist Bill Wyman’s metal detector, and Nelly’s Pimp Juice. But what would contemporary stars look like in classic ads from the 50s and 60s? That’s where Paris-based art director David Redon comes in.

  • Samuel L Jackson Performs “Boy Meets World” Slam Poem [Video]

    Jimmy Fallon continues his domination of late night TV with Samuel L Jackson’s slam poem about 90s sitcom “Boy Meets World.” Not only does the brilliant poem illustrate the writers’ in-depth knowledge of TGIF, it’s also a pretty accurate take on Def Jam Poetry. I haven’t thought about “Boy Meets World” in years and never thought I watched it much, but hearing Jackson’s beautiful words brought back so many memories. Let’s hope there’s more of these on the way.

  • #CancelColbert Fiasco Summed Up By Taiwanese Animators [Video]

    Have you missed out on the recent Twitter campaign to #CancelColbert over a satirical tweet that some interpreted as racist? What began as a jab at Dan Snyder has caused agitated agitators like Suey Park to call for the end of the Comedy Central program while the original issue of the NFL’s Redskins being offensive to American Indians has been pushed aside. Judging by this animation from Taiwanese Animators, it looks like Suey Park isn’t speaking for all Asians, however.
