This is random but perfect. I only wish it were longer…
I never knew anything about the honey badger until I read some article about badass animals last week. Now comes this video which describes the fearless nature of the beast with the perfect amount of thoughtfulness and sass. It’s like watching a nature special narrated by Isaac Mizrahi.
Sounds like 2011 is the year of the honey badge! (Rhymes with vag if you say it like that… and yes, my mind goes there).
This video is hilarious, and not just because it shows a woman so busy texting that she actually FALLS into a mall fountain. No, what’s hilarious about it is that this idiot now wants to sue the mall because no one came to her aid. “The fountain could have been empty… I could have been in the hospital… I could have walked into a bus; got hit by a car,” says Cathy Cruz Marrero, who seems happy to assign doomsday blame for her own stupidity. And speaking of stupidity, in case a) falling into a mall fountain and b) blaming the mall for it wasn’t stupid enough, Cathy Cruz Marrero wins the hat trick for idiocy by going on Good Morning America and exposing her dumb face to MILLIONS. Did she not realize that no one — absolutely no one — would have recognized her face or body from the grainy security cam footage in the original viral video? Bitch should have run home, spoken to no one, and locked herself in a room with a blow dryer. Then, worst case scenario: deny deny deny.
OR she could have done what the rest of us would have done: laughed at her own stupidity and milked it for a good status update and Tweet or two. I’m just spitballing, but I think “OMG you GUYZ, I just fell into a fountain at the mall. #FML!” would probably do the trick. Maybe even a “Who puts a fountain in a mall anyway? #GirlBye” too. There’s a whole world of possibilities for Cathy Cruz Marrero, and she most certainly took the worst route EVER. On the plus side, it is nice to point to someone new and say “That’s what’s wrong with America.” Really, on so many levels.
Big props to George Stephanopoulos for making it through the interview without cracking up.

My old school chum Cormac made this nifty little video that consists of nothing but him playing the ukulele. Not only is it charming, but totally safe for work! Huzzah!
The Bed Intruder Song has been the greatest viral hit of the year, and inevitably it has been covered by a cappella groups all across the country — most famously by the N’Harmonics at NYU, whose version has become a hit in its own right (despite some serious vocal shortcomings — listen to it here). Personally, I prefer the crisp stylings of the kids at ultra-conservative Liberty University, a school whose chancellor is none other than Jerry Falwell. So how does the religious right take on a song about “raping errbody out here?” Well, there were a few choice word changes, but aside from that, everything is largely intact. And quite frankly, these guys have much better voices than those NYU jokers.
Bonus points for the mashup at the end.

I’m not sure what possessed former talk show queen Sally Jesse Raphael to release a parody video of Jersey Shore, but the daytime star did it anyway, and I’m happy to report that it’s as bizarre as you’d think it would be. Just about the only thing stranger would be if she were to put on a white wig, gold chains, and pretend to be Jimmy the Greek giving NFL Predictions.
Nevertheless, Sally’s take on the MTV series is surprisingly quite funny and blessedly short. Her “Oh Hell No” moment, however, may haunt my dreams for the next several nights. Bonus points: Sally now appears to sound just like Renny from Big Brother 10.
Of course, now i have to wonder what other maniacal parodies might spring forth from SJR’s twisted mind. Will we see her dressed as a zombie and attacking innocent flesh Ã la The Walking Dead (a show that I still haven’t seen because I’m scared). Or will we see her inevitable take on Joan Holloway in her interpretation of Mad Men? Personally, I think she should just go all avant-garde and give us her take of Tron. Think about it: Sally Jesse Raphael… on a motorcycle… throwing laser frisbees… while Daft Punk plays. This must happen.

While this promo for the Norwegian show Gylne Tider is less impressive than its recent “Let It Be” themed video, it still is fairly impressive in its breadth of forgotten faces and one-hit wonders. Besides, I gotta respect any clip that brings together Luke Skywalker and Benson.
I don’t know why this video exists nor why all these celebrities of varying levels of fame agreed to participate, but one thing I do know is that it’ll have you scratching your head until the very end.
Check it out and share which celeb you think is most random.
