Watch Olympic Figure Skater Jason Brown Fart His Way To A Bronze Medal

Olympic Flatulence
Watch Olympic Figure Skater Jason Brown Fart His Way To A Bronze Medal
Let It Out, Jason!

It’s hard to boycott the Olympics when the flatulence coverage is so riveting. Figure skater Jason Brown helped the United States win a bronze medal in Sochi, so you know what amazing feats he can accomplish with his body. But you might not have known what he can do with his butt. The geniuses over at Ghost + Cow films did us the favor of dubbing farts over Jason Brown’s performance — as well as some other athletes competing in in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Such nonsense, yet so undeniably excellent. It’s right up there with the Evgeni Plushenko/Ginuwine mashup. [College Humor]

If Russian Figure Skater Evgeni Plushenko Did A Routine To Ginuwine’s “Pony”

Ride It, My Pony!

…it might look something like this. Plushenko is favored to win the individual men’s gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, but I’m pretty sure he could up his chances even more by just skating to “Pony” live. Ride it, my pony! [YouTube]

Olympic Figure Skaters Follow Fashion Trends, But Do They Set Them?

Whenever we watch Olympic figure skating, we get pretty caught up in analyzing the athletes’ outfits. While the men wowed us with their theatrical getups, the women followed current fashion trends. Well, a handful of them did.

In recent months, we’ve seen stars walk the red carpet in dresses with pieces missing. Cutouts figured into a few skaters’ costumes, including those worn by Joannie Rochette of Canada (above right), Miki Ando of Japan (above left), and Sarah Hecken of Germany during last night’s free skate. The difference is that the Olympians don’t actually show any skin — the “revealed” areas are actually covered in flesh-tone fabric.

Even though these skaters are on-trend, will what they wear on the ice make any styles au courant? Let’s hope not. Keep reading to see a popular Olympic look we won’t be copying. Keep reading »

6 Olympic Tearjerkers And Heart Warmers

The 2010 Winter Olympics has some heart-wrenching stories. The games started off on a tragic note when the 21-year-old Georgian luger, Nodar Kumaritashvili, died on impact during a training run, hours before the opening ceremony. Kumaritashvili’s death cast somewhat of a dark cloud over the Olympics, but there is a silver lining. As Morgan Freeman’s soothing voice will tell you in the numerous Visa ads playing during the games, there are also plenty of Olympic happy endings as well. One of the most recent inspirational tearjerkers is the story of Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette, whose mother passed away suddenly from a heart attack two days before Joannie’s first skate. But yesterday, Joannie delivered an almost flawless short program that left her in third place going into Thursday night’s long performance. Joannie said that she had “no regrets” about her short program performance and while “words cannot describe” what she is going through, she appreciates everyone’s support. Kleenex, please!
