In the category of hilarious but weird news, infamous comedy video website Funny or Die has released a Donald Trump parody biopic starring Johnny Depp. We couldn’t be more delighted. Who could be a more awesome choice to stick it to the celebrity presidential candidate than the man we can’t help but think of in our heads forever as Captain Jack Sparrow? After all, who better to play a pirate of industry only worried about protecting his own booty, right?
The Donald Trump Funny or Die parody film is titled The Art of the Deal: The Movie in a spoof off the business mogul’s 1987 book. Johnny Depp is not the only big name attached to the short film. The epically amusing video is narrated by Academy-Award winning director Ron Howard, and stars other well-known Hollywood names as Henry Winkler, Jack McBrayer, Patton Oswalt, Andy Richter, and Saturday Night Live‘s Michaela Watkins as Ivanka Trump.
Academy-award winning actress Helen Mirren has lent her face and gorgeous voice to an amusing-but-serious new Budweiser Superbowl commercial. The ad, which will run during Superbowl 50 on February 7, features Dame Mirren absolutely skewering any idiot who is stupid enough to drive drunk.
Budweiser has two Superbowl 50 commercials for 2016, including one featuring the brand’s iconic clydesdale horses. That ad won’t be released prior to the game. Budweiser did decide to give us a sneak peek at their other Superbowl 2016 commercial, headlined by Dame Helen Mirren. In the ad, the always classy actress delivers a scathing, but very elegant, list of insults geared toward anyone dumb enough to imbibe and drive.
Viral video challenges are all the rage right now, from puffing out your lips Kendall Jenner style to exploding water-filled condoms on your head. What these light-hearted videos don’t reveal, for the most part, is the terrible injuries that can occur from even what seem to be the silliest of pranks. One Washington teenager, however, learned first hand that these viral video challenges can be deadly.
Skylar Fish, 14, was participating in the so-called Duct Tape challenge when he was seriously injured and nearly killed. The challenge features people getting wrapped up tightly in duct tape, and often tortured by friends and family while they try to escape. Usually they are seated, but sometimes they are taped up while standing, like Skylar was.
Teenager Trevor Sullivanwasn’t feeling well last February, and was taken to the hospital. The situation quickly turned dire as the 14-year-old was diagnosed with severe heart failure. Eventually, it was determined that he would have to undergo a dangerous and grueling heart transplant if he was going to live to adulthood.
Luckily, a donor was found in time to save Trevor Sullivan, and give him a chance at a normal life. His grateful father, Phillip Sullivan, captured the moment Trevor woke from surgery on film. The resulting video quickly went viral, and the story has since been featured on ABC News, CNN, and other major media outlets. We dare you not to be moved by this beautiful video, and the joy shown by Trevor as he talks about how he has never felt better in his life.
The 2016 Superbowl 50 is just around the corner and, of course, half the fun is finding out what kind of crazy Superbowl commercials we’ll be seeing this year. One of the favorites going viral so far is the 2016 Pokémon Super Bowl commercial celebrating 20 years of the classic game franchise.
The Pokémon 20 commercial centers around the theme of “Train On” — continuing to play the various incarnations of a gaming series that has been thrilling children and adults alike for two decades. One of the most anticipated upcoming expansions of the franchise is the upcoming Pokémon Go mobile game, which seems to have a lot of foreshadowing going on about it in the Superbowl commercial.
Sarah Michelle Gellar is back, as she gets done up as Cinderella for the Princess Rap Battle video, where she takes on Belle and it is great! Belle is played by Whitney Avalon and both state their cases (and some pretty good rap skills) along the way! So, are you Team Cindy or Team Belle on this Princess Rap Battle??? Check out the Princess Rap Battle video below!
I love these rap battles, as we have seen some great battles and some famous people in history “come back” and rap. It is now time for Cinderella versus Belle and it is too funny!
If you are wanting to start you week off on the right note, you have to watch this video that shows skeletons in love behind a black screen. Seems weird, right? Well, the message behind this Ad Council video is amazing and shows us that love has no labels! Check out the skeleton video that everyone has been talking about below!
I was unsure about this, but I finally checked it out and I’ll admit it: I cried like a big baby after watching it! It is a touching video and a must see!
