WATCH: Lorde’s Grammy Performance Without Auto-Tune

lorde

I love Lorde. Not only is she a fantastic vocalist, at 17 she actually seems to get what most industry folks 4x her senior still don’t, and it was pretty great to see her able to shout that message straight to the A-list music celebrities sitting right in front of her at last night’s Grammys.

That said, I have wondered if every televised performance I’ve seen of hers is lipsynced. It just sounds too much like the original track.

But now, thanks to Youtube’s John Swan, we finally know what Lorde sounds like without the help of auto-tune.

Shine on, little lady.

VIDEO: The Alternate Ending to “Breaking Bad” We All Suspected

hal-walter-whiteJust as many of us suspected, Bryan Cranston is just too loveable to ever actually play a meth cooking, child poisoning, murdering sociopath. Thankfully we finally get the resolution we’ve been looking for when it turns out that Walter White was nothing more than a figment of Hal from Malcom in the Middle’s imagination.

I didn’t think I could love Bryan Cranston or Jane Kaczmarek any more, but this is just proof that their awesomeness knows no bounds.

I’m just waiting for the final director’s cut to tie this all together when it’s revealed that Hal was actually a nitrous-induced waking dream of Dr. Whatley’s.

Muni “Monster Mash” Etiquette Video is Everything Amazing and Terrible

Monster Mash Muni VideoIf there’s one thing I know about the San Francisco MTA, it’s that they really understand what their patrons want. And apparently the riders have spoken, as we’ve just been delivered the “Monster Mash” Muni etiquette video we’ve all been clamoring for.

THINGS I LEARNED FROM THIS VIDEO:

  • Old people are indistinguishable from skeletons, so you should probably give up your seat if you see either

I seriously watched this video three times through. IT’S INCREDIBLE. I want to know the process from pitch to production. Someone said:

Hey, I think we should make a video telling kids not to be dicks and  to offer up their seats when an old person is around. Let’s use a song that’s over half a century old, because you know, the youth. Also, let’s make sure the song we use is only relevant for two days after we release the video.

AND THEN SOMEONE ELSE SAID

Absolutely. Someone get Johnson from lyrics on this. I want him talking about all the issues: old ladies in purple, the need for feet to be rested, and klingons and their asian kids.

AND THEN THEY RECORDED A SONG. AND A VIDEO. AND THEY RELEASED IT.

As far as I can tell, the video features two types of people: those who are visibly convinced people will see this and say “Hey, it looks like I’ve had it all wrong about Muni being a depressing colostomy vessel this whole time”, and those who didn’t want to get fired. The guy at :53 can’t even stand the THOUGHT of what the video was going to sound like.

You’ll notice the bus doesn’t move throughout most of the video, which means either they had the forethought not to interrupt an actual Muni line’s commute or the driver was taking a smoking break.

Nothing will ever top my all-time favorite Monster Mash parody though:

Ride safely guys, and watch out for skeletons in purple fleece.

VIDEO: Polish Backup Band’s Incredible Fail on Live TV

Patty Polish Guitar Can't Play Lipsync

I don’t know anything about Polish music except that in order to play it you apparently have to be an insanely hot model who can’t actually play it.

At least that’s what happened on a live TV broadcast of Poland’s popular morning show Dzień Dobry TVN (“The Sausage Life TVN”) when pop star Patty debuted her new song Krzyk (“The Boy Gets Moody and Shouts”) recently and it became VERY apparent that her backup band had absolutely no clue how to play their instruments.

Look at those ladies! The only time you see them emote is when it seems painfully obvious even to them that no one’s buying their act. It’s like all their personality was surgically removed and replaced with Botox.

According to Joe.ie the backup members are actually Polish models Read More

VIDEO: Couple 69′s While Doing Wheelie on Motorcycle Because ‘MERICA!!!

69 motorcycle wheelie funnyEvery man knows that when a pack of motorcycles ostentatiously rides by without regard for traffic or pedestrians, revving their engines and setting off car alarms, women totally want to blow that pack of motorcyclists.

Which is why one woman couldn’t even wait till her man got off the freeway before assuming the position and 69′ing him. Because whenever I’ve been 69′ing with someone my first thought has always been, ‘How can we make this more uncomfortable?’

Honestly, the most impressive thing about this video is that those guys are wearing helmets. It’s good to make sure you’re being safe when you’re about to attack a young family in their car:

Happy Friday America! Now go ride your hog to Walmart and buy some guns to shoot into a pile of McRibs.
