Kids Swede the Chestbursting Scene From Alien, and Our Lives Are Better For It [Video]

I have breaking news for everyone: no matter what you do today, you will not top this video. Because this is a video in which children re-enact the chestbursting scene from Ridley Scott‘s Alien. With a sock puppet and a hair clip. And pizza and fake mustaches. These kids will grow up to be heroes. I just know it. They laugh in the face of fear (at about 30 seconds in).

Neil Patrick Harris Suits Up As Spider-Man for the Tonys

This just might be Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark‘s best moment. Watch Neil Patrick Harris as he takes on the mantle of Spider-Man and dangles from a web to introduce theater heavy-hitters Ted Chapin and Angela Lansbury. Frankly, I’m just surprised he wasn’t injured.

The CGI Batgirl Show That Never Will Be

Don’t get too excited, here’s the lowdown on this footage: this is a CGI promo for a Batgirl show that appears in an episode of the 2D animated Batman: The Brave and the Bold during a fantasy sequence that Batmite is having. Those are his exclamations you can hear over the audio. It’s not a promo for a real show. It’s not a promo for a short attached to a DC’s direct to video offerings. It’s just a tiny clip from a dream sequence in another show.

And yet it will surely never become a real series even though it looks fabulous so we should probably just enjoy it now.
