How do people in Japan go through life knowing that they are under constant threat of being pranked by a crazy game show? And that these pranks may involve a terrifyingly realistic velociraptor pouncing on you at your office while a studio audience laughs their asses off? I mean, as far as pranks go, it’s pretty brilliant and perfectly executed, but still, someone needs to buy this poor man a fresh cup of coffee and a stress-relieving massage, stat! [Daily Mail]

Hell to the YEAH. I was hoping the comic heroes who made “How Animals Eat Their Food” would make a sequel and THEY DID. Watch funny humans reenact the eating habits of antelopes, bunnies, meerkats, cheetahs, llamas, fruit flies, horses, octopi, hawks, fish and more! By the way, this is exactly what I imagine the life at the avant-garde preschool will be like. [Laughing Squid]
The Westboro Baptist Church have taken it upon themselves to appropriate Ke$ha’s song “We R Who We R” to spread their message of God’s “love and acceptance.” When they started singing their version of the song, “God Hates Who U R” (love and acceptance!), outside of a Ke$ha concert in Nebraska, the pop star decided to fight back in the most creative way possible. She sent her backup dancers to the protest to perform a choreographed number to the WBC’s proselytizing anthem. Watch the the dance above and enjoy the confusion of the WBC protestors who don’t quite know how to react. Sometimes Ke$ha says some weird crap, but I respect this move. Point goes to Ke$ha.

On the occasion of Sam Horowitz becoming a man in the eyes of the Jewish community, his parents spared no expense in planning his burlesque-themed reception at the Omni Hotel in Dallas last November. Lucky for us, the footage from his fully choreographed entrance dance has made its way to the internet. The number begins with professionals dancing to Christina Aguilera’s “Show Me How You Burlesque,” and goes on to reveal Horowitz, who joins them in strutting his stuff to Jennifer Lopez’s “Dance Again.” The Dallas Observer called it “unarguably the craziest entrance to a religious celebration and ceremony.” Rightfully so. Because never has a 13-year-old boy been so comfortable with himself. Mazel tov, Sam! [Gawker]
This video, posted by YouTube user Friends and Things, provides further proof that angles are everything. You’ve probably experienced this first hand every time you were tagged in a Facebook pic that made you want to die or took a selfie and came out looking like an alien. Rest assured. The photo was lying. “The importance of angles,” the girl emphasizes as she pans from under her chin to above her head. Oh, don’t we know it. [Gawker]
Well this makes me feel inadequate. Christopher Rosa, Next Movie‘s intern, literally recited the whole Mean Girls movie in less than 30 minutes. And I know this because I played it in the background as I was writing this post. I mean, I could only understand Rosa’s performance about 50 percent of the time, when he’s actually acting it out. And the other 50 percent of the time? Kind of a mix of half words and gibberish. Whatever. Still so fetch. [Crushable]
Mumford & Sons’ new video for their song “Hopeless Wanderer” begins much like every other Mumford & Sons video: four guys dressed in boots, tweed, and suspenders hanging out in a meadow playing banjos and staring into the sun. But then, wait a second, doesn’t that piano player looks a lot like Ed Helms? And I would swear the Mumford-esque man in the vest is actually Jason Sudeikis. And is that Jason Bateman playing banjo and Will Forte lugging a stand-up bass down a dusty road? Yep, it turns out Mumford and the boys have been replaced by four comedians. Crying, beard-licking, and hilarious vaudeville banjo showdowns ensue. [YouTube]
Due to a confluence of events including me moving across the country, misplacing my driver’s license, and the Oregon DMV refusing to emerge from the dark ages, I might have to take the Tennessee driving test to get a replacement license. The prospect of taking the road test again makes me feel almost exactly as terrified as I did when I drove to the DMV with my dad on my 16th birthday, but with an extra dose of embarrassment because I’ve now had 12 years of driving practice and I still don’t know how to parallel park. Oops.
I must say, though, that watching this video made me feel a little bit better. I don’t speak Korean, but the internet says this is a video of a woman’s first driving lesson that went so wrong, so fast. I might biff the parking section of my test, but I’m fairly confident I won’t, you know, FLIP THE CAR. [Neatorama]
Thanks to Andrea’s social experiment, we now know that walking up to strange men and asking them to have sex with you elicits a number of bizarre responses including, but not limited to: calling the cops, suspecting robbery, uncomfortable laughter, confusion, and a game of rock, paper, scissors. Of course there were some immediate YESes and few NOs (the man who was with his teenage daughter said NO … thankfully). All in all, Andrea ended up with about a 50 percent sexual proposition success rate. Lower than I would have guessed, but they were on video, which would be bound to make even the most willing guy skeptical. As for the social experiment where a man asked 100 random women to have sex with him? The success rate was much lower. Like a solid zero percent. [Buzzfeed]
Not that kind of tea bagging. Watch this footage of a man shopping in a UK health food store very carefully and you’ll see what appears to be some tea bags levitating off shelves. The video, which went viral on YouTube, has many convinced that it’s the work of a supernatural being (who clearly still loves tea).
“I was perplexed I suppose. I just couldn’t believe it. I have no idea about how it has happened. It is just a complete mystery. I have never seen anything like it since I’ve been running the shop,” said the manager Michelle Newbold. Although she still doesn’t believe in ghosts, she can offer no other explanation for the strange incident.
If this happened in America, you know the ghost would be making a cup of Starbucks or a Diet Coke levitate. Those British ghosts are so proper. [Kent Online]
