Watch This: Coffee Shop “Carrie” Is The Scariest Prank I’ve Ever Seen

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 thi…

Very Disturbing: Girl Caught On Video Beating Her Boyfriend In Public

This video of a girl berating her boyfriend -- both verbally and physically -- on the streets of Hong Kong reminds us that men can also be the victims of domestic violence. It's never OK to hit your partner even if he did cheat or lie or invite the "ugly" girl over to his apartment…

Watch This: Stay-At-Home Mom Posts Her Own “I Quit” Video

We all know now that the epic "I quit!" video that went viral was probaaaaably a PR stunt, but that didn't stop Brenna Jennings, a stay-at-home mom fed up with doing so much thankless work, make her own version.

Watch A “Fat Jew” Teach Yoga In A NYC Subway Station

Watch what happened when comedian Fabrizio Goldstein, who goes by the stage name "Fat Jew," taught free yoga in a New York City subway station, which, in hot weather, mimics the exact temperature and humidity in a Bikram class. If you've felt it, it's truly unbearable. Just like hot yoga! Although he's a funny man,…

Company Responds To “I Quit” Dance Video With Their Own Dance Video, Leading Me To Believe This Is All A PR Stunt

Believe me, I want to believe as much as the next cubicle monkey that this woman who quit her job via a video of her doing an interpretive dance to Kanye West's song "Gone" is real. I have wanted to go out in a blaze of glory at so, so many jobs. But now that…

Publicist To The Stars Bryna Rifkin Caught At Her Most (?) Condescending

Some things witnessed secondhand are so cringeworthy as to incite actual physical pain, and this 53-second clip of Marion Cotillard's PR girl snubbing a soft-spoken reporter is of that very ilk. Bryna Rifkin of ID-PR, the publicist and red carpet handler for Cotillard as well as other well-liked celebs like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jennifer Lawrence,…

This Is The Only Way To Dance At A Willie Nelson Concert

Listen, I have been to a Willie Nelson concert before and I only wished I had the balls to dance like this guy. Like all the other concertgoers in the video, I was too much of a coward to express my pure joy. Some may call this man's form of dance "drug-induced movement." I call…

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation

Who hasn't at one point -- or many -- dreamed of quitting their job in some sort of dramatic, clever fashion? Marina V. Shifrin, a video producer, was sick of insanely late nights spent creating videos that were only valued by her boss based on the views they received rather than the content therein. So,…

NYC “Silver Man” Shares Some Words With A Security Guard

The "silver men" of Times Square and other such tourist hotspots have one job and one job only — to stand completely stationary, no moving, no blinking, like a statue, as droves of out-of-towners, some less affable than others, photograph, video tape, pose with, and otherwise dehumanize them. (And, no, that doesn't even begin to…

Watch This: “Pumpkin Spice” Is The Scariest Horror Movie Of The Season

Every mid-September, like clockwork, pumpkin spice begins its fast and furious path to total flavor domination. All of a sudden, pumpkin is everywhere -- in lattes, cookies, scones, muffins, beer, not to mention countless appearances in overly enthusiastic Facebook status updates. When you think about it, the pumpkin invasion does have all the makings of…

Watch This: Two Best Men Give Their Brother A Wedding Toast — In The Form Of An 80s Music Video

Wedding toasts from the best man usually include a few awkward references to things the groom did while drunk in college, and maybe a couple groan-worthy jokes acquired via a "wedding toast jokes" Google search. Most wedding toasts do not include silver spandex and a shockingly catchy original 80s techno song, and they certainly don't…

Watch This: Jimmy Fallon And Justin Timberlake Go To Summer Camp

Anyone who ever went to sleepaway camp knows how wholly impossible it was to fall asleep when your Best Friend Forever was in the next bunk and you'd just eaten a bunch of sugary snacks and had flashlights to play with and songs to sing. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon were no exception. Check out…

Dancing Queen Bus Stop Lady Lands A Prestigious Theatre Part

Remember this unidentified lady, who was filmed dancing along to her headphones at a bus stop in the British town of Eastleigh? Well, unidentified no longer: her name is Ellie Cole, she's a 35-year-old mum, and she wasn't grooving along to ABBA's "Dancing Queen" after all! It was actually Alesha Dixon's "Knock Down" all along.

The Secret To Acting Like Your S**t Don’t Stink

The secret to acting like your shit don't stink is not wearing a ball gown speaking with a British accent while you poop. It's Poo~Pourri, the spray that masks the scent of the "creamy behemoth you just birthed from your cavernous bowels." (God, I'm jealous that I didn't write that line.) The spritz is scientifically…

It’s Time To Cry: Meet Sonya, The Google Street View Rescue Dog

When a woman who had been feeding a stray dog in Los Angeles asked a shelter to help her get the dog off the street, she had a little help in describing the animal's location: "Just look on Google Street View." The dog, who is now named Sonya, had been captured by Google cameras passing…

MTVDesi's resident fashionistas, Shugs and Fats (comedians Nadia Manzoor and Radhika Vaz), stopped by Lincoln Center to dig deeper into this season's trends and the fashionable "governors" who wear them.

We Swear It’s Not Porn! (NSFW)

When I was an actress, the worst part was telling my friends and family about the roles I was auditioning for -- or sometimes, had just booked. I'd be like, "I'm just got a horror movie with Gary Busey! I'm playing a vampire prostitute who gets shot in the head while playing cards with Morga…

Listen To The Worst Customer Service Meltdown Of All Time

I'm sure we've all found ourselves frustrated -- maybe even enraged -- when attempting to place a customer service phone call. They tend to be about as inefficient as humanly possible. Also, I don't think a rep has ever pronounced my name right, which just gets you off on the wrong foot immediately. That coupled…
