If you’re not following @shitgirlssay on Twitter, you’re missing the most authentic archived collection of information on the World Wide Web. I’ve never read anything more accurate in my life and I can only hope they continue to put visuals to the greatness that is SGS.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall was on last night and since it’s one of my all-time favorite movies, of course I had to watch it. I remember when it first came out, I stumbled across the bloopers on YouTube, which then linked over to these 2 audition videos for Russell Brand and Kristen Bell. I believe this was Brand’s first big American role and he couldn’t have picked one better. He essentially was Aldous Snow. You can see how his natural improv above is almost identical to the character in the film, and you can also see how hilarious and quick witted he is. There are so many lines that he fires out under his breath that crack me up.
Kristen Bell’s audition isn’t nearly as funny, although Jason Segel drops plenty of great lines, but it’s still pretty interesting to see how these improvisational tryouts are conducted. Overall, both clips provide some cool insight into one of the better comedies of the last decade.
And just for good measure, cause no matter how stupid they are, I can’t help but laugh at gag reels:
Editor’s note: I must be getting old, since I forgot that I already posted Russell’s video last year but hell, enjoy the other two clips…
As usual, you should already know what you get with a Jay Smooth commentary. Please take 10 minutes out of your day and watch this.
Following up on the first classic battle video, here’s the return of Supa Hot…
Just when I thought it wasn’t possible for me to like Sour Patch Kids more, they go and link up with Method Man for this video. On one hand, a rapper many looked up to as one of the grimiest MC’s in the game has just recorded an ode to delicious children’s sour candy. On the other hand, Mef probably needs that C.R.E.A.M. to avoid eating solely said candy. Plus, it’s still about 2312039210x doper than any sell out maneuver Ice Cube’s pulled over the past decade.
On the real though, I’m a SPK connoisseur. If you know me, you already know.
This Sunday, we finally bid farewell to Andy Rooney, one of America’s most iconic curmudgeons. A man who has never not looked 92, and who seems to have a bone to pick with everything, probably even bones. A man who stayed on TV so long that he got too old for 60 Minutes. What better way to say goodbye than with this glorious mash-up of his most nonsensical non-sequiturs. Goodnight, sweet rambling, out-of-touch, terrifyingly eyebrowed prince.
Reminds me of this Twitter account I just started following…
GSP teaches some tricks to the Princeton Tiger and UCONN Husky at ESPN HQ. I love that this is my company.
Landon Donovan takes on (Bellevue’s own) Tim Lincecum above and (Richland’s own) Hope Solo takes on (British Columbia’s own) Steve Nash in these hilarious ads for the new FIFA Soccer game from EA Sports. Kind of a NW feel to these ads, eh? I guess that’s to be expected with EA’s FIFA headquarters in Burnaby and soccer being more popular in the Pacific Northwest than pretty much every other area of North America.
Nash’s dry sense of humo(u)r is awesome. “That’s a low blow…I worked hard for that degree.” That dude is the man.
In fact, when FIFA drops on Tuesday, I’m kind of tempted to cop a system just to play it whenever I can’t get on the pitch in real life. Looks crazy!
Not only do you have Don Cheadle as the legendary Captain Planet, but the one and only Brenda Song makes an appearance…AND the homey from college, James Davis (also known as Baracka Flocka Flames), stars as well. Classic.
