Seeing as we’re going with a musical theme today (one post earlier today), here’s one more: a very amusing, and hellishly true, ripoff of Nickelback’s hit song Photograph, entitled “Look at this Instagram” – yet another pearler from the always awesome CollegeHumor.
For all of you who insist on inundating us with an overload of sepia-tinged cat and food photos on Instagram, this ones for you:
Now good luck getting that tune out of your head this evening.
You know those clowns who insist on posting those long-winded faux-legal Facebook statuses proclaiming that Facebook cannot use their pics or info or whatever without their permission and blah blah blah as they’re now a publicly traded entity blah blah blah? Well, here’s one for them to set the record straight once and for all: Facebook law for idiots, from the good folks over at CollegeHumor.
Some brand activations can be rather lame… Others? Epic. Take a look at last month’s “Unlock the 007 in you” campaign giving folks the chance to win tickets to the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.
Of course some folks (read: party poopers) are calling “FAKE” on this one, while others disagree. One guy reckons:
From an article in the Flemish news paper De Standaard: this video was produced by a Flemish company named Monodot, and was NOT fake. They did however have 106 people on the set (which is indeed Antwerp Central Station), including people to make sure no accidents would happen.
Well, I ain’t an investigator on Law & Order, so that’s good enough for me. Take a look:
Dear all my ex South African mates who hightailed it to Australia over the last decade or so. You’ll probably need a bit of local knowledge to get by in your new home. Always being keen to help another out when in a jam, I herewith present a handy cut-out-and-keep map of Aussie for your study:
Right, so Mashable posted an article this morning about how Google reckons it’s being ever so smart by figuring what the funniest video on YouTube is, in an all very scientific-like kinda way nogal. (All together now: Ooooooooooooooooo).
The reasoning behind it is this: actually, f@ck it – go read the Mashable article if you really wanna know. We’re all here to see people get the crap scared out of them, right? Thought so. Take a look (the third scene in this clip, with the Scream mask, is especially for Jeremy):
New jocks please! Classic. I gotta get one of those masks. It’ll be legendary.
You lot know Vinnie Jones, right? The Guy Ritchie movie stalwart who looks, and sounds, as though he was put on this Earth with the sole purpose of causing other people massive amounts of pain. All without breaking a sweat of course.
Well he has now teamed up with the British Heart Foundation to teach you hands-only CPR, set to (appropriately enough) the Bee Gees’ massive hit Stayin’ Alive. Take a look:
I imagine he’d accidentally crush your ribcage into powder if not paying attention, but that’s to be expected: he’s kinda the bloke Chuck Norris wants to be when he grows up.
For more light-hearted clips of His Royal Vinnieness, check out “Vinnie Jones will beat you thin…” a clip of his very own ‘Attack Cardio’ – his way of getting you thin, presumably by causing you to literally crap yourself skinny from pure fear.
And then, while we’re on the subject of saving lives, the guys may wanna click over to another old post, “Super Sexy CPR“, coz it really is important to know how to do this stuff…
In keeping with the spirit of the previous post, Justin Bieber vs Slipknot, I figured I’d share this little pearler with you: a death metal version of Rebecca’s Black massive (and massively slated) tune Friday. No idea what I’m harping on about? Then check this first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD2LRROpph0. Pretty rubbish, right?
Right, now that you’ve done your research, back to the point of all this:
So have you been keeping up to date with the latest releases from The Lonely Island? For those not familiar with these three, The Lonely Island is an American comedy troupe composed of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg, best known for its musical parodies (as written on Wikipedia – so it MUST be true ). Take one of their latest, and one of their best, examples – with really really really impressive viewership stats listed too (who says this site ain’t educationamaleducationarising well smart?):
I just had sex (feat. Akon) – and starring the superbly-fine Jessica Alba (38,9 million views so far!)
Comedy gold? Thought so. But it doesn’t end there – check out some of these guys’ previous classics:
Jizz in my pants – starring Molly Sims and Jamie-Lynn Sigler (95,7 million views so far!)
