It was bound to happen. We have found five million favorite things this week. Not really five million, not even one million. There were just so many things we saw online this week that we can’t contain ourselves and keep it to the five you have come to love. It is rather a random mix of clips actually, but I’m convinced they will pick you up out of the doldrums of the week and put you in a great mood for the weekend.
First up falls under the title of so adorable that you must squeal with glee. No, not the television show that has been so un-cute lately that I want to vomit. The kind of glee it used to bring. See what happens when you film the inhabitants of a sloth orphanage doing their best to just be sloths. Oh and if you are my secret Santa, please consider giving me one of these this year!
How can you follow that ultimate adorableness? With heartrending tragedy that is also kinda funny. Last weekend people gathered in Richmond, Virginia to welcome the holiday season. What they got was a parade in which something really disturbing happened to Rudolph. Please click this link to see what happened. It is guaranteed to blow you away.
Now that you have seen the things that can indeed go horribly wrong for you if you just want to par-tay, let’s see what happens if you take irony too far. In NYC, there is an invidious group of people living mostly in Brooklyn who are know as hipsters. They relish in everything that is not theirs and dress up in just about any style from just about any period of American historical fashion. I’m serious. I saw a dude dressed in a tricorner hat with a handlebar mustache. I carry an electric beard trimmer around to forcibly remove the ironic facial hair but no one can defeat the hipsters like Charles Bronson can. Ladies and Germs, I give you our savior.
Now that the world has been set right by our hero, we entreat him to focus his energies on Mel Gibson. Mel Gibson used be cool. He was beyond the Thunderdome with Tina Turner and the ultimate insurgent in Braveheart, but now he is just a disgusting pathetic loser. That’s why we are hoping you will watch this refashioning of his upcoming movie with Jodie Foster called The Beaver. That’s right: Jodie Foster is going to be in a movie called The Beaver and it is not about her not so secret sapphic side.
Take a deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath, cuz there is more! After Tuesday’s completely flaccid and vapid episode of Glee, I bet you have a hankering for some good music. We at Cocky & Rude are willing to fill that niche. First up is a parody of the trailer of Inception. What’s that you say? Inception came out months ago? Well a good joke never really goes bad, does it? See what happens when Glee cast hopefuls turn the Inception trailer into A Capella.
The Penultimate item of the week is altogether more musical and funnier than this week’s episode of Glee. Lip speaking the words to Let It Be just might be the new Rickrolling. Check out what happens when you get a bunch of celebrities together to prove that the We are the World remake is not the funniest thing that ever happened.
You made it! This is the very last thing we have to share with you this week. You should be very proud and write about it in the comments. With all the hype (and many of us hoping for a Broadway’s next big flop) about the new Spider-Man Musical, I couldn’t ignore the musical that lives in its shadow. I think the Hulk musical in the clip below is Wicked meets Phantom. Not sold on it yet? Well watch the clip and come to NYC for a show for once!
Captain Hippo-Hulk: Inside and Out (Hulk Musical)
I hope you enjoyed my rundown of the clips you would have already seen, if you were us (read: sit around online ALL the time). I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. Happy Weekend, Folks! You earned it!
