And All Was Right With the World

Movie Sign! Stars of Mystery Science Theater Are Back to Make Fun of Animals

I don’t think Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett can call themselves Mystery Science Theater guys anymore for legal reasons, but that’s not stopping me. These days they tend to go by a their more recent and entirely laudable efforts as the Rifftrax guys. But if they’re going to be riffing on nature videos for National Geographic, I hold out hope that there will be at least one huge slam on anteaters out of nowhere.

Dante Basco Can’t Escape The Legacy of Rufio. Bangarang! [VIDEO]

I’m sure that actor Dante Basco has learned by now that once you play a fan favorite like Hook‘s Rufio, it’s hard to shake the role, and I can only assume this is the trajectory of every audition Basco attends, including his Avatar: The Last Airbender audition, down to the gleeful humming.

What Ads For Women Look Like (To Women) [VIDEO]

We all know women only care about two things: non-fat yogurt and birth control. At least, that’s what advertisements tell me, so it must be right, right? Megan Amram and Yahoo’s sketch comedy series did a fantastic parody of condescending women’s advertisements: a commercial for both yogurt and birth control, at the same time, finally giving us women exactly what we want. Watch for a painfully accurate portrayal of women in advertisements (laughing with salad) and don’t miss the hilarious cameo at the end.
