It’s not a typical prank you’d expect on April Fool’s Day, but bravo to Google for this fun little stunt. To celebrate the special day, the search engine is allowing its users to transform their maps functionality into one huge Pac-Man maze.
Feel like chasing Blinky on the Champs-Élysées? How about eating Pinky at the Taj Mahal. Or play hide and seek with Inky and Clyde in your hometown? Wherever suits your fancy, Google can convert practically every location on planet Earth.
Simply head over to Google Maps and click on the Pac-Man icon to spend countless hours playing the iconic 80s video game. I’m sure your boss will appreciate it.
On a side note, Google’s stunt reminded me of Bud Light’s epic Super Bowl commercial this year where one lucky mofo got to play a life-sized version of the classic arcade game. If you missed it, check it out below.
Stephen Amell just can’t stop playing comic book characters. The Arrow star trades in his bow and arrow for hockey sticks for his new gig.
The 33-year-old actor just signed on to appear in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. He’ll play vigilante Casey Jones who eventually becomes a love interest for April O’Neil (Megan Fox). Someone’s gotta clean her pipes and Leonardo and company aren’t exactly up for task ;)
Plans for a fourth Max Max film have long been in the works but the project spent years in development hell. Eventually, Mel Gibson lost interest and walked away forever. Three decades later, a new installment is finally here. Substitute Tom Hardy for Gibson and Namibia as the new backdrop instead of New South Wales and we have Mad Max: Fury Road.
An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max (Tom Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
Joining Hardy and a bald Theron are Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. George Miller who’s directed all the previous Mad Max films returns to the post-apocalyptic franchise.
Mad Max: Fury Road rides into theaters on May 15, 2015. If the action-packed footage doesn’t lure you to watch it opening weekend, rumors have it that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to debut before the film. How’s that for an incentive.
“Chains” was originally picked as the lead single for Nick Jonas’ eponymous album. When the single failed to make a dent on the charts and on radio, it was relegated to buzz single status.
In an interesting twist, Jonas’ camp decided to give the kick drum-driven track a second chance. A remix featuring Jhene Aiko was released and now an alternate music video has dropped.
This time around, the 22-year-old singer opted to go the colorful route as opposed to the dark and moody original visual. Filmed at the famous Wynwood Walls graffiti and street art center in Miami, Jonas parties at an outdoor vibrant post-apocalyptic-themed rave while video vixens dance around him.
It’s kind of an odd direction to go given the lyrics. I would’ve much preferred something more seductive featuring a scantily-clad Jonas. Anyhoo, check out the new version below directed by Black Coffee and Peter Tunney.
Good news for all fans of The Americans. FX just renewed the drama co-starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys for a fourth season. Expect another sensational 13 episodes of spy intrigue in 2016. The show still has four episodes to air this season with the finale airing on April 22.
“Remarkably, this season of The Americans has achieved even greater acclaim than that of its first two seasons,” FX original programming president Nick Grad told The Hollywood Reporter. “The series has cemented it status with critics as television’s best current drama and arguably the best show on TV, and we couldn’t agree more.”
Maybe this year, the critically-acclaimed show can finally get some Emmy love. With exception for a couple of nominations for guest stars, it’s been virtually shut out. No bueno.
For their latest issue, Glamoholic corralled some of Hollywood’s hottest hunks. Former One Tree Hill hottie Chad Michael Murray graces the cover but it’s two inside spreads that have me hot and bothered, in a good way.
Robbie Amell (Duff) and Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) smolder for the camera for their respective fashion editorials. While both have great bodies, it’s their smizing that has me swooning. Boys are giving bedroom eyes to the hilt. Check out both spreads below and weigh in on which stud you think smolders more.
Remember Kat DeLuna? Her debut single, “Whine Up,” cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 back in 2007. Well, the 27-year-old singer returns and with a decently catchy comeback single.
The Dominican singer teams up with Trey Songz for “Bum Bum.” The island-tinged offering samples Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam.” For those not familiar with that, you might recognize the interpolation of Shaggy’s reggae hit “It Wasn’t Me.”
“I’m so excited for the world to hear my amazing new song ‘Bum Bum’ with the incredible Trey Songz,” said Kat to Rap-Up.com. “This song is evidence that music transcends generations, and for that I want to specially thank Sister Nancy for originating such an incredible song that left its musical imprint culturally for years to come. I hope ‘Bum Bum’ becomes your summer anthem!”
To accompany her hot new single, DeLuna debuts equally scorching artwork. Dang, that’s one sexy cover.
Check out “Bum Bum” below. It’s got potential to be a sleeper hit for this summer. The tropical beat go perfectly with those hot summer days and hotter summer nights.
The only thing that could make this new Netflix offering even more delicious is if somehow Dolly Parton was involved. Can producers please make that happen if the series is renewed for a second season. Pretty please for a 9 to 5 reunion.
Grace and Frankie comes from Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are long-time rivals but are brought together after their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married. Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play their newly-out former spouses.
“People say we have a lot of chemistry together,” Tomlin tells PEOPLE. “It’s because we’ve been friends for so many years. It seems like we’ve known each other always.”
Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, Baron Vaughn and June Diane Raphael round out the cast. All 13 episodes will be available to stream starting on Friday, May 8. Check out more preview pics below. I can’t wait to binge watch this.
