Dude Covers Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” In 20 Different Styles

Dude Covers Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" In 20 Different Styles
This Is Pretty Much Fantastic

Katy Perry is normally the opposite of my jam, but I really dig her single “Dark Horse,” probably just because it has a rap hook featuring Juicy J. But I’m even further impressed by this random dude’s decision to cover “Dark Horse” in the style of 20 other artists. Some are more successful than others, but I was especially impressed by the way he channeled N’Sync, Boyz II Men, Metallica and Nirvana. Oh, and as you might expect, the John Mayer section is pretty insufferable. [Gawker]

A Supercut Of Domino’s Pizza Complaints Set To Footage Of Starving People

First World Pizza Problems

#FirstWorldPizzaProblems

YouTube user Stuntbear came up with a brilliant way to raise money for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. They took all of the complaints from the Domino’s Pizza Australia Facebook page and put them against footage of people enduring real hardships like starvation, disease, war and natural disasters, with a prompt to donate money to the UNHCR. It really puts any first world pizza problems you might have into perspective. Suddenly, your pizza that “tasted like farts” or your pie that burnt your penis when you tried to have sex with it don’t seem so awful. [Daily Picks & Flicks]

“Nothing”: A Haunting Supercut Of “Seinfeld” Scenes Without People

Nothing: A Haunting Supercut Of Seinfeld Without People
Whoa, This Really Is A Show About Nothing!

“Seinfeld” is often described as “a show about nothing,” although in his fascinating Reddit AMA a couple months ago, Jerry Seinfeld disputed that, saying that was never the intention of the show, and never really captured what the show was actually about: social faux pas, and the strange ways comedians get their material. But anywaaaaay, a Vimeo user decided to run with the “show about nothing” theme and create a six-minute supercut of “Seinfeld” scenes where literally nothing is happening. No people. No dialogue. No action. Just empty rooms, outdoor shots, and that famous bass line, echoing eerily into the abyss. It’s … kinda creepy. [Vimeo]

“First Sniff:” A Parody Of That Strangers Kissing Video, But With Dogs

'First-Sniff'--A-Parody-Of-That-Strangers-Kissing-Video,-But-With-Dogs
20 Dogs Sniffing Butts For The First Time

That very moving video of 20 strangers kissing for the first time turned out to be a clothing ad, and the kissers turned out to actors and models. I can absolutely guarantee that this parody video made by the website Mother London contains no ulterior motives or hidden agendas. “First Sniff” is just 20 dogs, sniffing each other’s butts for the first time. Plain and simple. Like “First Kiss,” some of the initial interactions are awkward, but once some of the pooches get past the butt sniffing stage … whoa. Get ready to have all the feelings.

Parents Lip Sync “Frozen” Song Perfectly; Daughter Remains Unimpressed

Parents Lip Sync Song From Frozen; Daughter Is Unimpressed
Booooorrrrrrring!

If your life involves kids in any way, then you’ve probably had the “Frozen” soundtrack on constant repeat in the car, at home, on the computer, and even in your head. (Is “Let It Go” actually playing out loud right now, or does it just exist on permanent loop in your brain? You may never know.) These parents used all those repeated listens of the song “Love Is An Open Door” to memorize every syllable of it, and filmed a video of themselves absolutely nailing a dramatic lip sync while driving around with their kids. The best part, though, is their daughter in the backseat, who is thoroughly unimpressed by her parents’ antics. She literally yawns throughout the entire performance, which, as you’ll realize when you hit play, is quite a feat. [YouTube]

 

Precocious 3-Year-Old Pleads His Case For A Cupcake, Calls His Mother By Her First Name

Well played, kid

Linda, honey, listen, listen, listen!

I think we can all agree that this future lawyer deserves a cupcake for his debate efforts, not a “pow pow” in his butt. Seriously, I would hire him. He had me at “OK, Linda, honey, look at this.” How could you say no to that? [Daily Picks & Flicks]

Watch This: A 2-Minute Tour Of What The World Eats For Breakfast

Breakfasts Around The World
Who's Hungry?

I’m obsessed with the habits and routines of different cultures, the things people take for granted as “normal” that might seem completely alien to someone across the border, the continent, or even across town. And hey, what’s more of a basic routine than breakfast? This fun video takes you on a visual tour of the typical breakfasts of countries around the world. Which country’s morning meal looked best to you? Egypt, Morocco, Iran, and Sweden all had me drooling profusely. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Watching 20 Strangers Kiss For The First Time Will Renew Your Faith In Sucking Face [Updated]

This Is Their First Kiss

We’ve all had those awful first kisses that make us want to sterilize our mouths and swear off human intimacy for a long while. But, for the most part, kissing is one of those activities that is beautiful and intimate by nature, even if you barely know the person you’re snogging. In “First Kiss” a short film directed by Tatia Pillieva, we get to play fly on the wall for 20 complete strangers’ first kisses.

The preceding interchanges are incredibly awkward, as is to be expected, but once the couples get over the weirdness and lock lips, Whoa. The kisses range from really sweet and intimate to sexy and passionate. It’s just like real life, only without the cocktails and conversation part. Who ever thought watching strangers kiss could be so life affirming? [Digg]

Update: As much as we wanted to believe these were strangers kissing because their hearts yearned to connect, it’s actually an advertisement for Wren’s Fall 2014 clothing line. And many of those beautiful smoochers are professional actors and models. Womp, womp. [Slate]

Tummy time: an important part of your baby’s development and, as new dad (and health coach) Michael Stansbury demonstrates, the next best thing to a personal training session for busy parents. Watch Michael follow his baby daughter Lilly Ann’s patented core-strengthening moves, including the “Superman,” the “head on the ground,” and the “lay down.” My abs hurt from saying, “AWWW!” so much.

Take It Away, Clitoris!

I really don’t know whether to laugh or cry after watching a singing uterus school me about my reproductive future. Women’s menopause health and wellness awareness advocate, Ellen Dolgen, joined forces with comedian Rachel Bloom (who stars as the uterus) and songwriter Jack Dolgen to send women in their 30′s into an anxiety spiral bring a taboo subject to the forefront of discussion.  Keep reading »
