christina-applegate-meryl-streep-spoof

If this wasn’t a Funny or Die spoof, I would’ve almost believed it. I wouldn’t put anything past Lifetime. The network has a history of producing cheesy tell-alls about celebrities and beloved shows. But touching the great Meryl Streep would be sacrilegious.

Christina Applegate channels Streep in her most iconic films including The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia, Kramer vs Kramer and Julie and Julia to name a few. However, my favorite part is when the former Married With Children actress plays Meryl finding out she hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar. Her impression is spot-on.

Check out the hilarious clip below. The faux bad reviews are everything! ‘It’s not like she’s even trying!!!’

president-obama-running-with-bear-grylls

Bear Grylls has already convinced the likes of Kate Winslet, Channing Tatum and Zac Efron to trek through the wilderness. The 41-year-old British adventurer has scored his biggest get yet. President Obama will tape an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls during his three-day trip to Alaska.

Obama will reportedly hike on a melting glacier, talk to a local fisherman in the remote coastal village of Dillingham all in an effort to promote climate change action in the region. “As long as I’m President, America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change,” Obama recently stated. The historic trip will also see Obama visiting the Arctic. He’ll be the first sitting US President to do so.

In other related Alaska news, Obama revealed on Sunday that Mount McKinley will undergo a name change. For all you trivia buffs, keep reading to find out.

grumpy-cat-madame-tussauds

Ever since Grumpy Cat became an Internet sensation, she’s become a maverick of sorts. The unpleasant calico cat has graced respectable publications including The Wall Street Journal and New York magazine, become the face of Friskies, introduced a wide offering of licensed merchandise and even inspired a Lifetime movie, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.

Her latest groundbreaking achievement involves the world famous Madame Tussauds. Grumpy Cat nee Tardar Sauce becomes the first cat immortalized by the wax museum. The animatronic version with five different movements will be unveiled at the San Francisco location later this year.

In true Grumpy Cat fashion, she wasn’t pleased as figure sculptors measured her. Check out the cute clip below, along with the full press release.

red-bull-freerunning-illusions

‘Life as a freerunner means the whole world is your playground… or is it just one big illusion?’ asks the video description. I’d probably say it’s a bit of both. Parkour aficionado Jason Paul, along with Pasha Petkuns, play a few mind tricks with their creative and trippy visual illusions. Check out the eye-catching clip below.

rob-gronkowski-half-top

Not a lot of guys can pull off a crop top. That can’t be said about Rob Gronkowski. He rocks it out like no other. Is there anything The Gronk can’t do?

The New England Patriots tight end plays Half Top in Madden: The Movie which promotes the franchise’s new game. The hilarious clip also stars San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan and Neighbors co-stars Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Check out the clip below. Though Franco is often shirtless in it, Kaepernick’s alter ego is my favorite. He had me cracking up the entire time with his HOO-AHs.

diesel-english-bulldog-viral-clip

Every since I got my handsome Westie, Briggs, I’ve been a sucker for these type of videos. I could watch viral clips of dogs doing cute things all day long. Yes, I’ve become one of those sad people ;)

A New Jersey woman recently shared a video of her English bulldog, Diesel, fascinated with a cardboard box. Perhaps, fascinated is too mild of a word. Dude is obsessed. The cute canine just won’t let it go even though it impedes his vision, bumping into anything possible.

The owners try to remove the box but the stubborn fool just won’t let go. Watch the hilarity of his self-inflicted blindness below.

kevin-bacon-male-nudity

Every actor worth his salt supports a cause. Environmental issues, gun violence, children are just a few of the more popular platforms celebrities get behind. Kevin Bacon, on the other hand, chose one that is near and dear to my heart- male nudity.

The 57-year-old actor urges Hollywood for gender equality when it comes to nudity. In a hilarious fake PSA with Mashable’s help, Bacon declares, “In so many films and TV shows, we see gratuitous female nudity, and that’s not OK. Well, it’s OK, but it’s not fair to actresses, and it’s not fair to actors, because we want to be naked too. Gentlemen, it’s time to free the bacon,”

Bacon urges everyone to use the hashtag #FreeTheBacon when tweeting a picture of your genitals. Check out the amusing clip below.

close-shave-art-clip

Everyone knows swimmers remove most body hair to become more aerodynamic when in the pool. Anything to shave off a few seconds of their time. Pun intended.

With the assistance of two shavers and about 28 cans of shaving cream, one male model is stripped clean of any body hair. Surprisingly, he only received five cuts from the entire experience. Here’s what fashion filmmaker Bart Hess said about the shoot.

“Normally within my work I am looking for the limits of a material,” says Hess. “But in this film I was looking for the limits of the shaving ritual by scaling it up to include the whole body.”

If you’re a lover of all things hirsute, this video is probably not your cup of tea. For everyone else, check it out below.
