March 7 will change lives forever. It’s OSCAR NIGHT! Some will win, some will be “just honored to be nominated” and go home to whine about the injustice of Hollywood. Who will win Best Actor? Will it be Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart, George Clooney in Up in the Air, Colin Firth in A Single Man, Morgan Freeman in Invictus, or Jeremy Renner in The Hurt Locker?
Jimmy Kimmel shows us a sure fire way to predict the Oscar winners. It’s the Os-Car Race!
Cop Out, a comedy by the biggest director in Hollywood and on Southwest, Kevin Smith, opens this weekend in the U.S. Starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan it’s a comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it’s his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Just an excuse for laughs and Tracy Morgan to quote lines from famous crime dramas.
Spoof of Morgan Freeman‘s Olympic commercials for one of our favorite credit cards. With our up-to-the-second, live news world and bloggers and YouTubers and Twitterati, everyone in the world knows what happened at the Olympics the moment the score goes up. So why do we sit in front of our plasmas eating Cheetos and drinking shiraz watching it all with the excitement of it happening live…when in fact, it happened hours before?
It’s easy. It’s the Olympics and it’s wrapped up for prime time with the best, the worst and the most dramatic moments presented in a in neat little packages. Don’t you love old fashioned TV?
(This Olympic moment brought to us by Will Ferrell’s FunnyOrDie.)
Spoof video of overwrought, black & white films of the 50s. In the first webisode, Mister Glasses, Kitty, Hard Hat and Sean defend the values of Modernist Architecture against the onslaughts of wealthy patrons. Mr. Glasses is sort of the Mad Men of internet comedy. I found it on Will Ferrell’s FunnyOrDie.
Mr. Glasses is written and directed by Mitch Magee, stars Mitch Magee, Ellie Kemper (The Office), Ben Rodgers, Rob Lathan (Gary the Demon PA from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), John Gemberling, Curtis Gwinn and Dyna Moe. Filmed by Paul Rondeau and edited by Mitch Magee and Bill Buckendorf.
Spoof of the fab Mac Vs. PC TV commercials. Backup is good. Time machine is cool. Everyone wants a Time Machine. You can go back to the Good Old Days when everything in America was happy and safe and very 50s.
Spoof of the new “We Are The World.” Here’s “I Am The World” with Huey Lewis, one of the original stars who producers forgot to call for the updated version. Maybe they lost Huey’s number. Maybe Huey is too 80s to Tweet, FaceBook or cell. Maybe Huey is no longer News, so producers didn’t care. But, Huey still rocks, people. Watch the video. And the cat has a sense of humor!! Go Huey!
Will Ferrell’s FunnyOrDie Exclusive funny video starring Pat O’Brien covering the Vancouver Winter Olympics from a sound stage in LA. O’Brien tries to cope with realities of shooting low-budget internet shows and figuring out who his guests really are. Is it Mark Hamill or is it Dorothy Hamill? Hard to tell them apart, right?
Love the Olympic Memories with Pat O’Brien recalling his “meeting” with Shaun White at the Torino Olympics. Did you see the Flying Tomato ace that gold on Halfpipe last night? Can you say: Double McTwist 1260? Oh, dude.
Activists protest a bill in Minnesota that would ban loveless marriages. All couples have the right to be married, not just the ones that can stand each other’s company. Protesters insist resenting your spouse is a constitutional right. Who cares if a couple is unhappy together, or don’t love each other…codependence is addictive.
