I mean, to be able to memorize a monologue like that is hard when you’re Jack Nicholson. I’m particularly impressed with the way he splashes for dramatic effect. This four-year-old has a bright future in the biz. [Videogum]

Even the best horror movie storylines hinge on the main characters making very, very poor decisions. From exploring an abandoned mental institution to spending the weekend at a serial killer’s cabin to pushing play on a cursed videotape to taking every opportunity to split up and explore dark corners alone, horror movie characters are always severely lacking in common sense. This hilarious preview for an imaginary horror movie called “Hell No!” introduces us to something never before seen in the horror genre: sensible characters who do sensible things. You’ll hardly believe your eyes. [YouTube via The Mary Sue]
Like Ole Miss student Shelby Herring, we never had much school spirit.
But unlike Shelby Herring, we never got our school spirit by day drinking and then drunkenly blathered on camera, thus becoming the Internet’s newest viral video star. In between answering important questions about what’s a “hotty totty” and her favorite quarterbacks, Miss Herring chugs champagne, drops her mike, and shares bits of gold like, “Ole Miss, we may have lower IQs, I have a higher IQ than most people, no, that’s a lie. We have fun and we don’t ever miss a party!” Um, okay.
She is strangely endearing, if not the model Ole Miss student. And hey, what is Shelby’s friend doing this whole time?! Girl, with your friends start drunkenly blathering on camera, that’s when you pull them away. [AdWeek, Twitter.com/ShelbyClaireH]
Awkward. Macklemore called up a woman who was scalping tickets to one of his shows on Craigslist and gabbed to her for about five minutes in a (terrible) fake British-y accent. As far as prank calls go, it’s more uncomfortable than funny — he sounds like a lonely weirdo. But it’s kind of amazing when he reveals to the scalper that she’s actually talking to Macklemore himself the whole time … and then she kinda regrets the parts where she talked shit about him.

You know you’ve made it life when you make a seduction video for a lady you’re wooing and it’s so special that it lands you an “Inside Edition” interview. Such was the case for #StarbucksDrakeHands guy, known in real life as Brody “Odag” Ryan Curtis. An aspiring something-or-other creative type, Brody works as barista at a Los Angeles Starbucks. Just until fame finds him. Which it seems to have. But according to Brody, he never met model Piper Kennedy (the girl who made his video infamous) at Starbucks. The real scoop about how the “Drake Hands” video came to be after the jump. Keep reading »
Scot Haney, the weatherman on Hartford’s WFSB morning show, made a series of bad on-air decisions yesterday. His first mistake was eating what he thought were Grape Nuts off the floor. As if eating food of the ground on live TV wasn’t awkward enough, Haney immediately noted that the cereal tasted “like shoes,” adding, “I don’t think those were Grape Nuts.” As we all know, Grape Nuts aren’t the the most flavorful breakfast cereal, but they sure as hell don’t taste like shoes. Well, SURPRISE! Haney was correct! He didn’t eat Grape Nuts, he ate tiny particles of cat vomit, which he tracked with him to work that morning. Excuse me while I go puke on my shoe and eat it, mistaking it for Grape Nuts. [The Daily Dot]
Ugh! We we’ve all been there: eaten too much and didn’t know why. Found ourselves on the porcelain throne, regretting it. This little boy is learning the hard truth that when you eat too many apples, poutine, cheesestring, pickle chips, peanut butter and raisins, chocolate thingies, more chocolate thingies and gummies, that your poo might overflow the toilet. This is a good lesson to learn at such a young age. [Gawker]
Katy Perry might have been the latest musician to, umm, borrow a melody from another song, but she’s far from the first. Comedian/musician Chad Neidt made this delightfully catchy one-minute mashup of 12 other songs that were pretty much note-for-note copies of the originals. From Sublime to One Direction to Nickelback (the only band in the bunch that ripped off a song from itself), this video has all the answers to the question, “Haven’t I heard this song before?” [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
Before the days of smartphones and social media, a guy trying to pick you up in, say, a Starbucks, would slip you his number on a recycled napkin and call it a day. Perhaps, if he was feeling particularly bold, he might sketch a picture of you drinking a latte that you could file away in your scrapbook, deciding it might be best never to call him because that’s a little weird. Nowadays, a man a’ wooing has so many more opportunities to be strange. He could send you a seduction video, for example. Keep reading »
Even though this video is very clearly a prank video to promote the “Carrie” remake, and even though the first 30 seconds shows you exactly how the prank was set up, I still found myself covering my eyes and pausing it multiple times to collect myself. It’s THAT scary. I’m guessing the makers of this video had to reimburse more than a few of those coffee shop customers for their drycleaning bills, because finding yourself in a small room with a girl having a telekinetic freakout could cause even the most composed person to piss their pants.
