Nothing Says “Bye Bye Bye” Like A Singing And Dancing Flash Mob

Flash Mob Breakup
For People Who Are Sick Of Flash Mob Videos

Flash mobs — aka huge gatherings of people singing and dancing in unison with the purpose of expressing some intimate sentiment in a public, attention-grabbing way — pretty much jumped the shark when one appeared at the end of that Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis movie, “Friends With Benefits.” But flash mob breakups? Now that’s a twist I can get behind. Watch Sarah get her heart ripped out by boyfriend Alan’s jazz hands in this hilarious parody. [YouTube]

This Parody Of NPR’s “Serial” Podcast Is More Amazing Than Adnan Syed’s Pubescent Mustache*

"None of this was adding up..."

Okay, first off, are you listening to NPR’s “Serial” podcast? If not, I need you to stop what you’re doing — yes, stop reading this post — and download all seven episodes so far, clear your schedule tomorrow to listen to them all and get with the goddamn program, because it is AMAZING. (In this first season, host Sarah Koennig walks through the timeline of a crime that occurred in 1999, telling the story of how a high school student was murdered and her ex-boyfriend, the Adnan Syed referred to in the title of this post, was convicted of the crime — which he maintains to this day that he did not commit.)

Shop Your Way To A Thigh Gap!

Thigh Gap
Painfully Funny, In More Ways Than One

We have comedy team Just Boobs Sketch to thank for this great parody of the extreme measures women are expected to take to adhere to modern beauty standards. As part of the group’s mission to #EndThighGap, the comedy ladies peddle us a fictional pair of jeans that will widen thigh gaps with the help of a wooden rod, and for only $69.99! Bleak, isn’t? Let’s put the thigh gap trend to rest already! [Cosmopolitan]

“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies Lorde With His New Song & Video For “Foil”

Weird Al Yankovic's Video For "Foil"
Like Lorde's "Royals," Only Much More Useful!

“Weird Al” Yankovic! Still a thing! And he has a new album of relatively funny parody songs called Mandatory Fun. Every day for eight days leading up to the album’s release, Weird Al has been releasing a new music video, and today’s is admittedly not to be missed. “Foil” is a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” and yes, it’s about the highly useful household product. Frankly, I think foil is more worthy of tribute song than those “royals” Lorde was singing about. I mean, you can use it to make a DIY robot costume for Halloween and to cover up your leftovers.

Move Over NYC/Atlanta/New Jersey/Beverly Hills, Because Here Come “The Hotwives Of Orlando”

Move Over NYC/Atlanta/New Jersey/Beverly Hills, Because Here Come “The Hotwives Of Orlando”
"Get your finga outta my face.”

From the same people who brought us such ah-mah-zing mockumentary series as “Burning Love” and “Newsreaders,” comes a new show about female empowerment and the betterment of mankind.

SIKE!

It’s about completely vapid Florida-based housewives who wear tacky dresses, drink too many mojitos, and prefer their men like their chocolate—rich. It’s called “The Hotwives Of Orlando” and, judging by the trailer, it’s going to be our next dose of Hulu-prescribed Prozac. Keep reading »

“The Slap” Is The Perfect Cheeky Response To That “First Kiss” Video

"The Slap" Is The Perfect Cheeky Response To That "First Kiss" Video
With An Appearance By ... Haley Joel Osment?

Remember that “First Kiss” video that came out a few months ago, that purported to feature 20 strangers kissing for the first time? It was cute, but our awws were cut short when it was revealed the whole thing, while not quite a hoax, featured models and actors and was really an ad for the clothing company Wren. Well, this parody video, called “The Slap,” didn’t make me pick up where my awws left off, but it did crack me the hell up. Look, I obviously don’t condone violence, blah blah blah blah blah, HOWEVER, I do think there’s something to be said for having the experience of slapping and/or being slapped at least once in one’s life (with consent). Just to see what it feels like. Who wants to slap me? [TIME]
