One lucky Nintendo fan managed to snag a Nintendo Switch two weeks early and was kind enough to put together a video showing off the new console’s menus. It’s like an unboxing video but not. (via Polygon)

  • James Cromwell (previously a pig farmer, computer programmer for a computer that almost destroyed the world, and a 21st century scientist) has officially joined the cast of the Jurassic World sequel. That’ll do, sir. (via Birth.Movies.Death)
  • Ask and ye shall receive: Baby Groot has his own comic coming out, from the creator of Dr. McNinja, Christopher Hastings. (via Polygon)

This fun animation from The Animation Workshop imagines an interview between a reporter and two zombies in a post-zombie-apocalypse world. It’s the levity you needed today. (via Laughing Squid)

  • Uh, is McDonalds okay? They posted a (parody) commercial where they talk about redesigning the straw to maximize the flavors savored in their new Shamrock shake. (via The Daily Dot)
  • Like Rock ‘n’ Roll? Then you have these excellent black women to thank. Noisey’s in-depth look into the roots of rock is well worth a read.

What’d you see today, pals (besides that atrocious press conference)?
