I love these videos. I really do. They’re the perfect blend of wrestling and humor, and I could watch them all day. With that said, this is far and away the best RKO video out there. I’m not sure how the creators of this video plan to top themselves, but for me this is the apex. Which is funny, because it’s the apex for the Apex Predator. My joy for this video is only matched by my jealously that I didn’t create it. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD
James Spader was the PERFECT choice for Ultron. Listen to that tone! He was born to play this super villain.
This trailer was leaked a week ahead of schedule. When Marvel caught wind of the leaked they tweeted this.
Mr. Incredible is kind of a dick, huh? Obviously we don’t know what happened before this but there’s not a scenario on Earth that warrants a man going after a woman like this, especially Batgirl and especially when that man is Mr. Incredible. Have some class, buddy. When Freddy Krueger, the man who kills children in their dreams, is the voice of reason, you need to start reevaluating what you’re doing with your life. Poor Waldo was just trying to help out and he gets shoved in the street and almost murdered by a motor vehicle. After watching this video, I have three takeaways: I want to take Batgirl out to a nice seafood dinner, Mr. Incredible is a horrible person and the worst job in the world is absolutely being a Where’s Waldo street performer.
Just so everyone knows, this is actually happening. Bale is reportedly set to play Jobs in an upcoming biopic with director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting…etc) at the helm.
I still haven’t seen the Josh Gad/Ashton Kutcher one, but I bet Bale plays Jobs beautifully.
I don’t need a promo to get me jacked up for Jim Carrey to host SNL, but I guess it’s standard procedure. My only hope is that they let the writers let their freak flags fly and this is just a weird, crazy episode. You have the master of weird, over the top comedy in Jim Carrey and a group of writers who are coming into their own. Let em’ loose. Whatever the outcome, this should be a great episode of SNL.
Fall signifies a lot of things: Halloween, sweatshirts, the start of the NBA and the NHL, the misery of fantasy football; for baseball fans, it signifies one thing: the Fall Classic. The World Series kicked off last night between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals, with the Giants taking game one. For people who don’t like baseball, it’s tough to explain how much it means watching your favorite team in the World Series. But for people who love the game, no explanation is necessary. Here are our personal favorite World Series moments:
Kirby Puckett’s Amazing Game 6 in 1991
Normally I’d try to squeeze a Red Sox highlight into this slot, but the Sox tend to save most of their heroics for the ALCS, so I went with one of the best World Series games ever played by an individual position player. The Twins were facing elimination in Game 6, and Puckett basically put the team on his back to force a game 7. In the first video, he robs Ron Gant of at least an RBI triple in the third inning with an insane catch against the Plexiglass. The second video is his walk off home run in the 11th inning of the same game. He also singled and tripled in this game, driving in three of Minnesota’s four runs. His walk off home run also gave us one of the most memorable calls in baseball history, Jack Buck’s “And…we’ll see you tomorrow night!”. Hell of a game.
I won’t lie to you, this isn’t your typical “World Series Moment”, but Ryan said I could pick ANY moment so I pick Clemens throwing the broken bat at Piazza. There is a lot to be said about a man that would throw a sharpened wooden spear at another human being, most being less than kind. To this day, i’m not sure what Clemens was thinking, because there is no way in hell that Piazza did that on purpose. Sure, Piazza wanted revenge from the concussion he suffered at Clemens’s hand earlier in the season, but not even the deepest rage could anticipate flying pieces of a broken bat. Clemens is just a competitive (crazy) person, and I will always admire him for it.
Ridley Scott! You magnificent man! This looks amazing! Please tell me the Alien makes a debut!
A few takeaways from this commercial:
- if you’re going to pay tribute to a horror movie, The Shining is always a good choice, so kudos to IKEA for that
- overalls will clearly never go out of style
- how fucked up is this kid’s imagination?
- how can a kid with that bad of a haircut be that good at driving his wheelie?
IKEA staying ahead of the game, releasing their Halloween commercial before people get sick of Halloween. Veteran move.
