It’s the ’90s, so turn down the Spice Girls, get off your cellular, dial up your modem and let’s get this party started.
Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Real talk: This Lady Gaga video for Thierry Mugler’s Spring 2012 collection is so out of control, so twitchy, and outrageously Le Fashion Video that it has to have been inspired by Mugato’s Derelicte collection. I mean it’s straight outta “Zoolander,” right? Gaga plays a weird diamond-toothed rave kid with a biiiiiiiit of a Mugler obsesh. [YouTube]
If you grew up watching “Sesame Street” — uh, who didn’t? — I’ve got the documentary for you. “Being Elmo” is about Kevin Clash, the man behind Elmo, arguably one of the most popular “Sesame Street” Muppets of all time. Clash aspired to work for Jim Henson since he was a kid, even making his own puppets in high school. This is the story of how he made that dream come true. I was never the biggest Elmo fan (Grover was my man!) but it is undeniable how popular the character is with children; he embodies, as Kevin says, “pure love.” “Being Elmo” hits theaters on Oct. 21.

Remember that K-Y Intense commercial about a lesbian couple? I love this NSFW spoof about Lip Labs, a beer- or jalapeno-scented vaginal wipe product for your ladybits to get rid of “that vagina smell.” Um, please don’t give Summer’s Eve any ideas. [Hello Giggles]
My first thought when I saw this adorable video of a little boy watching “The Empire Strikes Back” and learning that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s dad: Is this an old home movie of John DeVore as a kid? Alas, it is not, but it might as well be. Looks kind of like him and I’m pretty sure John felt just as shocked. [i09]
