“Love Actually 2″ Has Less Romance, More Wizards And Zombies

Love Actually 2 Trailer
"To me, you are perfect. As long as you're not a zombie."

Can you guys believe it’s been 10 years since “Love Actually” came out? It’s about time this Christmas classic got a sequel, don’t you think? Well, you’re in luck: the whole gang is back together in this hilarious and disturbing parody trailer for “Love Actually 2,” which catches up with the ensemble cast as they’ve whiled away the past decade killing zombies, teaching at Hogwarts, bounty hunting, threatening kidnappers, taking speech classes, and going on unexpected journeys. For the record, I would totally watch this movie if it were real. [YouTube]

Watch This: Proof That “The Mindy Project” And “When Harry Met Sally” Are Basically The Same

Watch This: Proof That "The Mindy Project" And "When Harry Met Sally" Are Basically The Same
The similarities are uncanny

This video mashup, set to The National’s “I Need My Girl” shows the uncanny similarities between “The Mindy Project” and “When Harry Met Sally.” Well, rom com is considered a genre. I suppose there are worse things in life than borrowing extensively from Nora Ephron. I’ll reserve my outrage until Mindy and Danny have a “baby fish mouth” moment. [Vulture]

Watch This: Mannequins Modeled After People With Disabilities Challenge Fashion Industry’s Definition of “The Perfect Body”

Mannequins Modeled After People With Disabilities
"It is special to see yourself like this."

The traditional body shape of store mannequins is so restrictive and unchanging that a Swedish store’s decision to display a curvy mannequin was enough to cause an uproar. It’s rare enough for people with “average” bodies to see themselves represented in the fashion industry, but for people with disabilities, the chances of seeing a body that looks like theirs when they walk past a department store window hover somewhere around zero. To increase visibility and confront these exclusionary body standards, an advocacy group called Pro Infirmis hired an artist to create mannequins based on the exact measurements of people with physical disabilities, which were then displayed in a Zurich store window. The results were captured in this beautiful four-minute video. Here’s hoping the fashion industry takes the message to heart, because diversity — in any form — is always a good thing.

Watch This: Finally, An Honest Trailer For “Home Alone”

Home Alone Honest Trailer
It's One Part "Ferris Bueller" And One Part "Saw"

A few years ago, my brother and I were sitting at a coffee shop, and all of a sudden he got this really horrified look on his face and said, “Do you realize at the end of ‘Home Alone,’ Joe Pesci was about to bite off all of Macaulay Culkin’s fingers, and he totally would have if that old man hadn’t walked in and knocked him out with a snow shovel?”

Daaaaaamn,” I said, and we both just sat there, contemplating the crazy, violent fever dream that was our favorite childhood Christmas movie. Don’t get me wrong, I still love “Home Alone,” it’s just that if it had been marketed honestly, well, the trailer would looked a lot more like the one above. [YouTube]

It’s Time To Cry: A Group Of 5th Grade Boys Come Together To Show A Bullied Student Lots Of Love

It's Time To Cry: A Group Of 5th Grade Boys Come Together To Show A Bullied Student Lots Of Love
These Kids Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity

A group of 5th grade boys at Williams Intermediate School in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, who call themselves the “Band Of Brothers,” have pretty much just restored my faith in humanity. These little boys are so kind and loving that they almost make you forget how cruel kids can be. When the “Band of Brothers” heard that other kids were picking on Danny Keefe, the six-year-old water boy for the local Pee Wee football team, they did more than come to his defense.  Keep reading »

Florida State Acabelles Sing Royals
Even Better Than The Original?

Even if you’re sick of Lorde’s “Royals,” you HAVE to watch this amazing a capella version of the song by Florida State University’s AcaBelles. It’s beautiful and haunting and just so well done. Also? Someone needs to give that lead singer a recording contract, like, now. [YouTube]

It’s Time To Cry: Watch Unsuspecting Families Get Their Holiday Groceries Paid For

Watch Familes Get Their Groceries Paid For
"Are you serious? Are you serious?"

Most YouTube pranks involve smug bros pretending to cheat on their girlfriends, but this one has a much kinder agenda: a YouTube prankster set up a hidden camera at a grocery store to capture the reactions of families as they were told they wouldn’t have to pay for their huge holiday grocery bills. There’s actually no prank about it — the groceries really were paid for and many tears were shed. (The video is sponsored by an energy supplement, so just ignore the awkward infomercial at the end, but I swear the first four minutes are worth it.) [Laughing Squid]

Puppies Learning To Howl
You can do it, little buddy! Use that big voice!

This compilation of teeny tiny puppies trying out their shaky little howls KILLED ME. I watched it 50 times and now I am dead. Send flowers to my parents, and then hit play to join me in my cuteness-induced early grave. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Last week we watched with glee as Batkid saved San Francisco (AKA Gotham) from dastardly villains and made the whole country cry happy tears. Relive the drama and intrigue in this movie trailer version of that amazing day, titled — what else? — “Batkid Rises.” It’s a good reminder that, as Batman himself once said, “A hero can be anyone.” [YouTube]
