If shirtless blue men turn your crank, you’re in luck. Apparently, the Smurfs are all gay with exception to Smurfette who’s actually the village hag. LOL. Clearly, the following video isn’t tied in with the upcoming Smurfs sequel but rather a parody promoting marriage equality. Humor is definitely a great way to spread the message.

My favorite Smurf in the clip is the one wearing a pink flower on their hat and holding a pink mirror. When Papa Smurf declares the village residents’ homosexuality, the flamboyant Smurf sarcastically delivers, “Shocker! Bet you didn’t Smurf that coming.” He has all the best lines in the clip. Check it out below.

For the first time since 2008, a boy won the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The 86th annual competition began on Tuesday with 281 contenders. By Thursday’s semifinals, the number of “spellebrities” was down to 42.

After placing third the past two years, 13-year-old Arvind Mahankali finally came out on top. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe he’s the sixth consecutive Indian American to win. What was his Achilles heel in previous years- a German word- turned out to be his blessing in 2013. The Queens, New York native walks away with $30,000 cash, a $2,500 U.S. savings bond from Merriam-Webster, $2,000 worth of reference works from Encyclopedia Britannica and a fancy trophy which he held above his head for cameras.

Chloe Reminisces About Memorial Day

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Videos

This post was originally written May 21, 2011, but since it’s Memorial Day for our US readers, I thought I’d recycle it. Personally, it’s my favorite one from Drew Droege’s clips. If you haven’t checked it out, you simply have to. If you have, why not give it another spin. Enjoy and Happy Memorial Day.

As you can see, it’s really not Chloe Sevigny but rather the fantastic Drew Droege. If you’ve never seen any of his Chloe impersonations, you’re missing out. My friend Dan from Seattle first introduced me to this online gem last year. Ever since, I’ve been hooked. Since Drew didn’t create a video celebrating our long weekend in Canada occurring this weekend, I thought I’d post this video in honor of that. And the fact Memorial Day is next week also made this post very timely.

In his past videos, “Chloe” has listed off her favorite things for “Summer” and “Birthdays”. For his new video, “Memorial Day“, the Chloe Sevigny impersonator recalls memories of Memorial Days past. Once again, the combination of random celebrities and past pop culture references had me howling out loud. Plus his side-hip pose delivery with his signature voice cracks me up. Check out the awesomeness that is Drew Droege aka Chloe below. You’ll never look at the real Chloe Sevigny the same way again.

Join The #FitchTheHomeless Movement

Do you have any Abercrombie & Fitch clothing kicking around the house gathering dust? Hopefully the answer is negative. No self-respecting homo should have a logo tee from the brand in their closet since the early 2000s, especially all you 30+ ones. That’s right, I’m talking to you. Unless you’re in high school or early college, you have no business wearing A&F. I’ll give a pass for those pieces with very subtle branding on it. On the off chance that you do, here’s a brilliant and hilarious idea on what to do with it.

Greg Farber came up with a creative idea to change the brand’s image. His video is in response to Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries’ ridiculous statement about how he doesn’t want “not so cool” kids or women who wear size large to wear his company’s clothes. As Farber points out in his video, this coming from a guy who looks like Biff from the Back to the Future flicks makes it all the more absurd. Watch Farber as he covers the company’s business practices and goes on a hunt for A&F clothes in vintage stores in hopes of donating them to skid row residents. Check out the clip below.

How Much Stuff Do Our Bodies Make In A Year?

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Videos

Ever wonder how much hair your head grows in a year. Apparently six inches worth. If that bit of knowledge excites you, then you’re going to love this video created by BuzzFeed. It covers other bodily functions over the course of a year. From how much skin your body sheds, to the number of sweat you produce, everything is covered. The human body is truly a fascinating thing. The only thing I wish they would’ve uncovered is the amount of semen an average man produces. Can you imagine the number of buckets? Watch the video below.

Have you seen those Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” commercials? It’s where women sit down with a forensics artist behind a white sheet to describe themselves. Then another person comes in to give their description of said person. The whole point of the campaign is to show women they’re more beautiful than they think. Regardless of gender, we truly our own worst critics.

A few parodies of the Dove creative have surfaced online. A few weeks ago, one showed men having an inflated opinion of themselves. They thought they looked like movie stars like Brad Pitt and George Clooney, but in reality they weren’t. As funny as that sketch was, this new #Balls parody is even funnier.

Only 4% of men around the world know how beautiful their balls are, according to the video description. Watch men discover that their soggy freckled balls are actually beautiful visions to behold. Check out the new parody below, along with the original Dove commercial.

Well this is exciting news. If you’ve ever felt left out because there are male condoms and female condoms, and you’ve always wondered where the condom for your pooper was… you may be in luck.

Daniel Resnic’s ‘Origami’ condom designs are made of latex-free silicon and come in three varieties. You have your standard male condom, a female condom, and a receptive anal intercourse condom (Which, as far as I know, is a first.)

The condoms are said to be safer, and more pleasurable. They claim that the condoms simulates the sensation of ‘sex with out a condom’, which is great news for you bareback lovers out there who still want to protect themselves from STIs. If approved, the condoms could go into production as soon as 2015.

If you can manage to not laugh your ass off there are a few hilarious videos explaining how the condoms work and are inserted into and onto the body for use. Unfortunately, I had to turn them off because I’m immature and when I giggle too much I have to pee.

That’s what social commentator Dr. Boyce Watkins says about the clip. American rapper Tyler The Creator is the man behind Mountain Dew’s three part trash-talking ad spots featuring Felicia the Goat. The first one showed the wily goat violently throwing a soda at a waitress while the second spot had her pulled over for a Dew-U-I, but it’s the last one that’s creating so much controversy that forced PepsiCo to issue an apology.

The ad features a battered and bloodied woman, sporting a neck brace and crutches, as she attempts to pick her aggressor from a police lineup. Meanwhile, Felicia threatens her from behind the mirror with zingers like this, “Keep your mouth shut. I’m gonna get outta here and I’m gonna ‘dew’ you up.” Dr. Watkins eloquently describes the offending lineup as follows:

“Of course, in the world of Mountain Dew, every single suspect is black. Not just regular black people, but the kinds of ratchety negroes you might find in the middle of any hip-hop minstrel show: Gold teeth, “mean mugging,” sun glasses wearing, white-t sportin, hard core n*ggaz ready to “get into some ol gangsta sh*t.”

One of them is even called Beyonte (OK that part I admit I chuckled at ;) This isn’t the first time Tyler the Creator has come under fire. The 22-year-old has often drawn criticism for being homophobic and misogynistic in his raps. His rep issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter about the offensive commercial. Check out the clips after his statement.

“It was never Tyler’s intention to offend however, offense is personal and valid to anyone who is offended. Out of respect to those that were offended the ad was taken down,” it said. “For those who know and respect Tyler he is known for pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes through humor. This is someone who grew up on David Chappelle. This situation is layered with context and is a discussion that Tyler would love to address in the right forum as he does have a point of view.” – Tyler The Creator
