For far too long, dragons have been terrorizing helpless goats and children in the Seven Kingdoms, and it’s time to do something about it. Call 1-800-DRA-CARYS to donate to the worthy cause of catching fire-breathing dragons and finding them forever catacombs. And heads up! If you call in the next 30 minutes, you’ll be sent your very own photo of a dragon you’re helping to enslave right now. Don’t wait — call now, before another child of Mereen is dumped at Khaleesi’s feet. (Props to my buddy Greg Seals at The Daily Dot for making this hilarious spoof.) [The Daily Dot]
First of all, Sofia Coppola really is directing a live-action film version of “The Little Mermaid.” Secondly, I don’t think it’s going to be that far off from what this Funny or Die spoof — starring AnnaSofia Robb and Evan Peters — presents. A melancholy hipster romance, set to great music with lots of late-afternoon sun glare? Yep, looks and sounds like a Sofia Coppola film! (That’s not a diss — I’ll be first in line to see the real thing.) [i09]
I find it impossible to separate Michelle Dockery from Lady Mary, her character on “Downton Abbey,” and apparently neither can she. Even when playing Connie Tough, a bad ass cop in “Tough Justice” alongside Michael Chiklis — on TNT, natch — her hoity-toity side comes out. There is a prim and proper way to fight crime, you know. (Bonus: Jon Hamm narrates!) [Funny Or Die]
There really is nothing funny about Tila Tequila’s obvious mental health issues, which are evident in her recent rants (excuse me, “satire”) about sympathizing with Hitler and fearing lizard people. But there is something funny about Hitler rejecting Tila Tequila’s support because, amongst other things, she didn’t even call Bobby after “A Shot At Love” finished filming. Thanks to reader Jenna for passing along this flawlessly subtitled video! [YouTube]
The best part of last night’s Edward Norton-hosted “Saturday Night Live” was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders.” It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious children; cutesy, diorama-like sets; an array of artfully presented weapons, like a picture of Edith Piaf and a protractor; a totally twee plot; and, of course, a stop-motion mouse. Only this time, a scary murderer is on the loose. Watch above!
I have been feeling complex emotions about Miley Cyrus lately — I begrudgingly love her new album, Bangerz; I hate that she made fun of Sinead O’Connor’s mental issues — but she earned some points back with me with this spoof on “Saturday Night Live.” A raunchy remix of “We Can’t Stop” about the government shutdown, starring John Boehner and Michelle Bachmann? Perfection.
Who’s excited for the third season of “Girls”?! I am, especially after seeing this new promo which indicates the show is finally getting a dose of real diversity. Hannah has a new roommate — and she’s from Albania! Surely nothing will make whiny twentysomethings Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa realize how good they have it like hearing the sad story behind Blerta’s rubber hand. Right?
Jimmy Fallon only has six months left as the host of “Late Night” before he takes over at “The Tonight Show,” and he has a lot of work to do. Watch as he brings on a partner, zips up his hazmat suit and starts slinging jokes instead of Walter White’s signature blue meth in this ridiculously spot-on spoof of “Breaking Bad,” featuring cameos from real BB cast members Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris and Bob Odenkirk.

Addicted to the Facebook/smartphone game Candy Crush? Then you’ll relate to this faux trailer for “Candy Crush: The Movie.” Once you play the game long enough, you do start to lose yourself! Candy Crush dependency is no joke, you guys. I’ve been stuck on Level 79 for over a week and it is ruining my ability to function. [via Facebook]
