You Forgot Blueberries

27 02 2011

I can’t get enough of this video.

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard as I did the first time I watched this video.

The minute lead-up to it is completely worth it.

The slow motion just kills me.

This was posted just about two years back and now has more than 3.6 million views.

I feel bad for laughing but how can you not after the slow motion?

Just like how The Situation forever changed my opinion of the word “situation”, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to hear the word “blueberry” without thinking of that little girl bowl-smacking herself as she falls off her stool.

I’ll never forget the blueberries ever again.

 





Taking Mario Kart to the Streets

25 02 2011

If you’ve ever grew up playing Mario Kart on Nintendo64… or even played the original Mario Kart on Super Nintendo… then the inner Yoshi in you will have mad respect for this French guy.

His name is Rémi Gaillard… and basically what he does is go around playing pranks on everybody in France.

He’s done elevator pranks.

He’s done live Pac-Man in the mall pranks.

He’s done some street soccer trick shots.

He’s acted as a member of a winning soccer team, held the trophy, and signed autographs!

He’s basically messed with every French policeman imaginable… active or retired.

He did a Mario Kart video a couple of years back, but now he’s back for round 2.

Here’s Rémi dressed as everyone’s favorite red-hatted, overall-wearing, video game plumber… dropping bananas and green shells on fools left and right.

Bowser didn’t stand a chance.

Residual Trade Effect: No Baron Davis = No Jessica Alba

24 02 2011

Before the NBA’s trade deadline struck today, the Los Angeles Clippers were able to ship away Baron Davis and the rest of his fat contract (2 years, roughly $28 million left after this year) along with this year’s 1st round draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon.

There were a whole lot of players moved today in one of the NBA’s craziest trade deadlines in years.

But the one thing that sticks out about this Clippers trade isn’t that Baron Davis got something in between an indirect middle finger from the Clippers front office and the NBA’s equivalent of a death sentence.

It wasn’t even that they threw away a potential top-10 draft pick this year to get a shoot-first pseudo-point guard who isn’t even shooting 39% from the floor and a former Harlem Globetrotter whose skill set consists of jumping nice and high.

No, the thing that sticks out is that the days of occasionally seeing Jessica Alba on the sidelines for a Clipper game are officially over.

Baron Davis went to Crossroads High School with Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren… which (I hate to admit) is pretty much the only reason Hollywood stars would go to a Clippers game.

And now that he’s not on the team, neither is Jessica.

Damn.

Don’t get me wrong, she is a babe of all babes to begin with…

But damn did she look good wearing Clippers gear.

Jessica, in case you didn’t know, being a Clippers fan isn’t easy… just ask Frankie Muniz.

Maybe you got out in time.





Teaser trailer released for ‘The Hangover Part II’… Let the anticipation begin

24 02 2011

In 2009, ‘The Hangover’ was arguably one of the best comedies of the past decade.

Now, with the upcoming sequel ‘The Hangover Part II’ set to drop on May 26th, the first look at the new movie was released today.

A teaser trailer was put up on YouTube… and it seems that some serious shenanigans are going down in Bangkok following the wedding of Ed Helms’ character, Stu.

It even looks like Mike Tyson’s presence will indeed be felt on one of our protaganists’ face again, but this time, it won’t be via a right hook to Zach Galifianakis’ dome, it’ll be to Ed Helms’ face with Tyson’s iconic and moronic facial tattoo right around the left eye.

However, as much as I hate to say it, with all the ridiculously high expectations, I think The Hangover 2 is bound to be a disappointment. It’s extremely hard to top what the original did.

Mike Tyson’s great cameo and sucker punch of Zach Galifianakis.

Ken Jeong’s hilarious naked performance and great one-liners.

Basically all the crazy sh*t that happened… it all was too good and too funny.

I mean how can you top that?

I hope I’m wrong but either way, I’m forking out some cash to see it.





The Best Dunk of All-Star Weekend Wasn’t in the Dunk Contest

23 02 2011

The best dunk of the NBA’s 2011 All-Star Weekend wasn’t in the Dunk Contest and it wasn’t even in the actual All-Star Game.

Nope, it was in the Rookie/Sophomore Challenge.

Was it the ACL-less wonder DeJuan Blair’s alley-oop of glass to himself?

Pretty sick, but nope.

Was it either of “Old Man Game” James Harden’s two dunks in the Rookie Challenge?

I mean I love me some Sun Devil Magic, but no.

Was it DeMar DeRozan’s East Bay Funk Dunk Remix?

Awfully impressive, but nah.

Was it Serge Ibaka (getting robbed of a 50 after) throwing down the longest dunk in the history of the Dunk Contest or even JaVale McGee stuffing down two balls in two hoops?

I mean damn, both were pretty awesome, but still, negatory.

It was a bounce pass alley-oop from John Wall to Blake Griffin, and you can just imagine that it was a thing-a-beauty.

You may be thinking this is just a poor excuse to post a video of Blake Griffin throwin’ down on my part…

And the answer is yes.

This is just a poor excuse for me to post a video of Blake Griffin throwin’ down.

But still.

From the 2010 #1 overall pick to the 2009 #1 overall, this alley-oop is just all kinds of “HOLY SH*T!!!!!”

Hot damn, yo.

And the damn shame of it all is that Wall’s pass could get completely overshadowed because of Griffin’s slam dunk aura. To be able to place a bounce pass alley-oop on point from beyond the three-point line takes a ridiculous amount of strength, skill, and precision.

And man does it look pretty when all three of those stars are aligned.





Dirk Nowitzki Loves In-N-Out… F*** Yes

22 02 2011

Dirk Nowitzki just earned some serious points in my book.

The Mavs’ franchise player did an interview with ESPN Dallas earlier today and they all of a sudden got onto the subject of In-N-Out Burger.

Let’s not forget that the hamburger’s origins date back to Germany… so being the German that Dirk is… he probably knows a thing or two about the ol’ burg.

When he was asked if he eats burgers, Dirk said, “I try to stay away, but In-N-Out, you just can’t compare it. It’s the best. It’s the best.”

Nothing wrong with In-N-Out being a vice, amigo.

He even said although it’s not good to, players will get In-N-Out after a game on the West Coast because, “they’re too good to pass up.”

You hear that? Too good!

He was even asked to compare other burger joints, and big Dirk said, “McDonald’s is decent, I guess, but no, the In-N-Out Burger kills them all.”

Boom. In-N-Out KILLS.

So, f*** yeah, Dirk. Here’s to you, big guy.

I’ve always been pretty indifferent about the dude but damn he scored some points in my book real hard.





Cedar Rapids: Best comedy since ‘The Hangover’

21 02 2011

It was a super rainy Saturday, and since I had nothing to do, I went to go see Cedar Rapids up in Scottsdale. The previews looked funny and I had read good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, so I figured I might as well throw out 7 bucks and have a good laugh.

I thought the movie would be funny, but god damn it was hilarious.

Ed Helms plays the role of Tim Lippe, a small town insurance agent who has never left his hometown of Brown Valley, Wisconsin. He has to travel to Cedar Rapids for an annual insurance convention to try to win his agency the prestigious Two Diamond Award.

What ensues over the movie’s 86-minute duration is plenty of laughs and great performances from Helms and John C. Reilly, who plays the wild and crazy Dean Ziegler. The movie was casted to perfection, and for working on only an $8 million budget, Cedar Rapids definitely outdid itself.

I can’t think of a better comedy since ‘The Hangover’ came out in the middle of 2009, which also had Ed Helms in it.

For the record, I plan on seeing it at least once more.

If you’re looking for a great laugh, Cedar Rapids is your winner. There wasn’t a dull moment and trust me, you won’t regret chucking out a couple bills for admission.
