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

Stay At Home Mom I Quit Video
"This is to let my family know ... I QUIT!"

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. This tired mom is done making beds and cleaning the “petri dish” her family calls a bathroom. She quits! She’s gone! Just kidding. She’s running out to get milk and will be right back. Sigh. A mother’s work is never done. [YouTube via Neatorama]

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

Watch A "Fat Jew" Teach A Yoga Class In The Subway Station
Yoga like you never imagined.

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, Goldstein, who also taught a spinning on class on NYC’s Citi Bikes, claims that these fitness classes are not part of his act:

“The rate of return for people who do it the first time is like 100 percent. Anyone who thinks it’s exploitative is making a tremendous snap judgement. There’s water, food, and everybody feels good. There’s no obligation to go and the people who do have the most killer time.”

What an awesome way to make yoga accessible to everyone. Let’s just hope he’s extra careful teaching tree pose when a train is barreling into the station. [Jewcy]

Taiwanese Animation Company Responds

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 the very same Taiwanese animation company which supposedly employed Marina Shifrin — who, by the way, is a comedian — have responded with their own video, I find it increasingly less likely this whole thing is real. Isn’t this just a massive PR stunt? These people make viral videos for a living. Watch Next Media Animation’s “response” video and tell me you don’t agree with me. [YouTube]

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

Publicist To The Stars Bryna Rifkin Caught At Her Most (?) Condescending
That One's Gonna Burn Later...

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, was caught on camera belittling a journalist at the Toronto Film Festival. The clip shows the reporter in question informing Rifkin that she had been given permission to ask Cotillard a few questions about her new movie “Blood Ties,” before Rifkin informs the reporter that she was never given permission to do so, and oh, by the way, she’s in control, and she says no. Good lord, that smug smirk, those angry faces — this certainly isn’t the first time Rifkin’s played this card, and she looks more than happy to do so. Who would have thought the woman responsible for so many seemingly affable celebrities could “Mean Girl” with the best of them? [Page Six]

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

This Is The Only Way To Dance At A Willie Nelson Concert
When The Music Moves You Deep In Your Soul...

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 it “when the music moves you deep in your soul.” [Videogum]

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation
I QUIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!

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, one night at 4:30 am, while stuck in the office, she decided to make one video on her own terms: an interpretive “I quit!” dance to Kanye West’s “Gone.” How much you wanna bet this video gets more views than the others she did for work? I’m happy to help with that by posting it. You go, girl. [via Thought Catalog]

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

Silver Man...

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 include the abuse they endure from security guards, as seen here.) Simple! For $75 an hour plus tips, you might be convinced to give it a shot, too. Witnesses are unsure as to what, exactly, may have provoked this particular silver man’s unceremonious exit, but one thing is for certain: he’s getting the fuck out of there. [via Gothamist]

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

Pumpkin Spice Horror Movie
"Pumpkin is everywhere! It's not even that good!"

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 a good horror movie, which is exactly the premise of this hilarious (and chill-inducing) trailer for a fictional film called “Pumpkin Spice.” Before you push play, beware: you won’t be able to go near a Starbucks for at least a few hours after watching this.

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

Best. Wedding. Toast. Ever.
Best Men Wedding Video
You Are Our Brother! Don't Leave Us!

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 come in the form of a 6-minute music video. This one does. Created by the groom’s two younger brothers, who call themselves Baddy Paris and Rufus Starlight, the video toast has proved to be a viral hit online, but alas, it didn’t accomplish its intended goal. “At his wedding we pleaded for our brother not to leave us, in the only way we knew how to say it: through the the medium of 80s music and video,” the duo explained on YouTube. “We thought we’d done OK, but he left us anyway.” [YouTube via Buzzfeed]

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

Justin Timberlake Jimmy Fallon Summer Camp
"I only wanna be with yooouuuuuuu!"

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 their supremely dorky post-curfew rendition of “I Only Wanna Be With You” by “Hootie and his Blowfish” in the hilarious video above. And if you think Jimmy kept a straight face, well, you don’t know Jimmy Fallon very well [YouTube via People]
