Brilliant Video Asks, “What If Gay Guys Said The Shit Straight People Say?”

What If Gay Guys Said The Shit That Straight People Say?
"What does a straight horse eat?"

Straight people: consider this video a public service announcement. Watch it, laugh at how ridiculous it is, and then NEVER SAY ANY OF THESE THINGS AGAIN. Got it? Good. [YouTube]

It’s Time To Cry: Family Surprises Terminally Ill Mom With A Flash Mob Of Love

Grab a Kleenex now.

Two years ago, Amy Wagner was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer. After undergoing major surgery and painful chemotherapy treatments, Amy and her family got the worst news one year later: the cancer was back, and this time the diagnosis was terminal. Amy is determined to make the most of the time she has left. To help boost her spirits and show her that she is surrounded by love, her daughter Lauren brought together 50 of Amy’s closest friends to perform a surprise dance for her 56th birthday. “We recorded it so that she could re-watch it in times of struggle,” says Lauren, “and so that the 50 of us who participated could watch her beautiful reactions once she’s no longer with us.” This video is a perfect illustration of Amy’s motto: “dum vivimus, vivamus,” which translates to “While we live, let us live.” And seriously, grab a kleenex before you push play. You’re going to need it. [Today]

Watch This: An Infomercial For The Useless Sports Bra Every Big-Boobed Woman Has Already Tried

2 Sports Bras Infomercial
2 Times The Support + 3 Times The Armpit Cleavage!
Found: My New Fave Sports Bra
Moving Comfort Fiona Bra
A cute, comfortable sports bra for DD cups?? Yes, it exists! Read More »

Most women with big boobs have tried it at one point or another: you get fed up with the complete uselessness of your sports bra, so you just put on another one. And sometimes a third. I remember commiserating with the other big-busted girls in the junior high locker room as we all squeezed our boobs into layers and layers of stretchy sports bras. One girl routinely wore FOUR at a time, with a fifth deployed on mile days. My neck and shoulders ache just thinking about it. But hey, desperate times call for desperate measures! This hilarious infomercial imagines the desperate double-bra method as a feasible product, and the women modeling it are understandably unimpressed. [College Humor]

Watch This: A Hilarious (And Painfully Accurate) Parody Of Dove’s “Real Beauty” Ads

Dove Real Beauty Parody Ad
"Wow, You Must Hate What You See In The Mirror."

Dove has had a few moments of brilliance over the course of its decade-long Real Beauty campaigns — I genuinely enjoyed the “sketches” ad last year, for example — but the entire premise of a company that sells anti-cellulite cream trying to teach women to love themselves exactly as they are has always been problematic. Whether you think Dove’s Real Beauty messages are malicious, annoying, or inspiring, I think we can all agree the over-the-top ads are ripe for satire. Enter this hilarious parody of a Real Beauty ad, that asks a group of women to confront their reflection in the mirror … in the form of a man in a gorilla suit. It’s pretty absurd, but is it any more ridiculous than the cringe-worthy “beauty patch” ad Dove released 4 realz earlier this month? [Feministing]

Painfully Accurate: 5 “Fun” New Ways To Walk In Heels

5 Fun New Ways To Walk In Heels
Because Graceful Is So Last Year.

Do you struggle to walk in high heels? Do you teeter around uncomfortably? Wince noticeably at your rapidly multiplying blisters? Curse the invention of the stiletto while simultaneously loving how sexy they make you look? Sigh. Don’t we all? You could read high heel walking tips and tutorials all day, but these guides mostly focus on walking very slowly, heel first, then toe, and wow are they not helpful. Luckily we have YouTube Goddess Akilah to give us the real lowdown on how to walk in heels. Her five walking styles include “The Jack Sparrow,” “The Yeti,” “The Rookie Model, “The Crawl,” and “The Sit.” You’ll definitely see yourself in at least a couple of these awkward movements, because as Akilah says in the video description, “heels are the most fun a girl can have when she can’t find any other shoes to wear!” [YouTube]

Watch This: A Spot-On Rundown Of The Regulars At Every Hipster Coffee Shop

Hipster Coffee Shop Parody
"I'm writing a novel."

This parody of all the most obnoxious customers who frequent hipster coffee shops might seem a little out there (an aged Sumatra roast is served in a desk fountain, and Michael Caine shows up at one point), but for anyone who’s ever worked at a coffee shop, you know the caricatures are painfully accurate. I must say, though, that I totally relate to the guy who brings in his entire desktop computer and then spends the whole day sheepishly requesting an outlet and free refills. As someone who spends quite a few work days at coffee shops, I feel you, bro. [YouTube]

Watch This: Screaming Goats Cover The “Game Of Thrones” Theme Song

Game Of Goats
Screaming Goats = So Much Better Than An Orchestra
Screaming Goat Vids
The ten best screaming goat music videos. Watch »

We’ve seen screaming goats cover hit songs by Katy Perry, Celine Dion, and Jay Z. Wasn’t it only a matter of time before someone synced up a bunch of screaming goat clips to recreate the “Game of Thrones” theme song? The surprising thing about this video isn’t so much that it exists, but that it’s fucking perfect. Click play to see for yourself! [Laughing Squid]

Honey Maid Shuts Down Homophobes With Amazing “Love” Ad

Honeymaid Love Ad
Love Conquers Hate.

Last month, Honey Maid, the maker of graham crackers and Teddy Grahams, debuted a new ad campaign called “This Is Wholesome.” The commercial featured loving images of gay and interracial families. The sweet 30 seconds of TV time predictably outraged homophobic groups like One Million Moms (which, it should be noted, only has 64,000 followers on Facebook). Angry letters were sent. Boycott threats were made. And then Honey Maid did something awesome: instead of bowing down to the homophobes, they actually stood behind their message of tolerance and inclusion in a really beautiful way, hiring two artists to transform the hateful response into an inspiring message of love. The result is this video, a powerful reminder that the tides are turning, and hate is losing. I’ve watched it three times, cried three times, and now I really want some chocolate chip Teddy Grahams. Honey Maid: mission accomplished! [Jezebel]

Oh My God: Samuel L. Jackson Performs A Slam Poem About “Boy Meets World”

Samuel L. Jackson Performs "Boy Meets World" Slam Poem
Topanga. Topanga. Topanga.

It’s a great day when you wake up and see the words “Samuel L. Jackson performs a slam poem about ‘Boy Meets World’” trending on your social media sites, click on it, and realize it’s not some cruel April Fool’s Joke. This spoken word ode to everyone’s favorite ’90s sitcom, facilitated by Jimmy Fallon, is as real as it fucking gets. Samuel L. Jackson’s delivery is flawless, and the last few lines legit gave me goosebumps. We love you too, Mr. Feeny. Class dismissed. [YouTube]
