Ever since Kevin Keller first arrived in Riverdale back in 2010, he’s been a fan favorite with Archie Comics readers. The blond, blue eyed, athletic and gorgeous stud became the comics’ first openly-gay character. Since his debut, Kevin received a full series pickup, been targeted by anti-gay groupOne Million Moms and even got hitched with a hot military man. You go, Glen Coco. Now, the groundbreaking cartoon is achieving a new first. He’s getting his very own novel.

“This is a book I would have hugged if I’d had it as a child,” says publisher Francesco Sedita. “I hope it has that effect on children and adults today.”

Famous Rabbits In Cinema

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Videos

Everyone knows Roger Rabbit, Bugs Bunny and Thumper from Bambi, but that’s just scratching the surface. There are plenty more rabbits in cinema history. Given that it’s Easter today, I thought I’d share this wicked supercut.

Travis Rand Greenwood and Brett Roberts compiled bunnies from animated films and live action ones for the clip. It includes obvious selections as the ones mentioned earlier, but also features those rabbits in films like Real Genius, Con Air and The Matrix. Without watching the video, I can’t recall the scenes where those floppy eared animals appeared. One cute bunny that I do remember and unfortunately met its fate is the infamous one from Fatal Attraction. RIP 😉 Check out the supercut below and hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.

By now you know I’m the prankster of the bunch… or at least I love to watch them. When I stumbled upon the work of Jack Vale super early in the morning the other day, it’ had me in stitches as I laughed my head off.

Vale has countless videos of pranks he pulls on people that are super awkward but elicit some of the best reactions from the unsuspecting victims. One of those pranks is “Making People Paranoid.” Here’s what Vale says about this prank: “This is probably my favorite prank to film. My goal is to make people feel as uncomfortable as possible as they listen to me describe to someone on the phone exactly what they are doing and what they look like! I had a lot of fun with this one!”

Watch this and many other pranks by checking out the videos I’ve included below. Hope they bring laughter to your day!

Best News Bloopers Of March 2013

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

Another month has already gone by and with that has come another batch of the Best News Bloopers for the month of March. Both the January and February editions were quite hilarious, and this one has some pretty funny incidents as well.

About a week ago, I actually wrote about one specific live news prank that happened this month where the anchor wished a happy birthday to Huge Anus without realizing what he had said. One of the other anchors just loses it when he hears it and needless to say, this blooper definitely made the cut for March’s best news bloopers. My favorite one in this montage is where a female news anchor (shown top left in the header photo) accidentally says something pretty dirty and simply can’t recover from it as she breaks down into laughter.

Enjoy the video below!

I spent Christmas in Hawaii this year and one of the things I wanted to do but didn’t get around to was shark cage diving. I’m deathly afraid of sharks, but have always been equally fascinated by them ever since I was a kid. I was obsessed with Baywatch and Jaws movies. I actually randomly ended up getting a shark tattoo on my left shoulder while I was there. Anyway, after watching this video – I’m not so sure shark cage diving is for me.

While vacationing in Gansbaai, South Africa, a man named Bryan Plummer decided to go shark cave diving with friends. He filmed as his recently married friend Roger was in the cage and instead of the shark going for the bait, he went for Roger and it was caught on video. Here’s what Plummer had to say about the incident:

“I went shark diving March 21st, 2013 for the first time in Gansbaai, South Africa with my sister Leanne Plummer and best friends Peter Lipscombe, Richard Lipscombe and Monica Kronfli .. and managed to catch this on film!! A shark totally ignores the bait and goes straight for the cage!! He gets his head inside the cage, while fellow diver Roger (who got married the day before), acted quickly to swim below the gaping sharks mouth and to avoid any injury. Apologies for any profanity in the video.. it was an out of control situation.”

The video was just uploaded a few days ago and has gone viral, with almost two million views already. Watch the video below and maybe think twice about shark cage diving.

They were never approved by Ford, but new artwork from an ad agency in India have the American car company in hot water. The controversial illustrations depicting women caricatures gagged and tied up in the back of the Ford Figo somehow (wink) ended up on the Internet. The ads feature the tagline, “Leave your worries behind with Figo’s extra-large boot.” A tad inappropriate don’t you think? Especially given the high-profile rape stories in India making worldwide news.

“We deeply regret the publishing of posters that were distasteful and contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within WPP Group. These were never intended for paid publication and should never have been created, let alone uploaded to the internet.” – WPP, the parent group of the Indian ad agency

“We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should have never happened. The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners.” – Ford

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appears in one of the ads (see above). These come soon after Berlusconi was found guilty of breach of confidentiality in a wiretap case and as he awaits trial in a sex-for-hire case.

Another part of the creative shows Paris Hilton in the driver’s seat while the Kardashian sisters are bound and gagged. I’m sure Hilton would love to “leave her worries behind.” While her popularity has wain, Khloe, Kim and Kourtney’s star wattage has only risen. To quote Regina George… she [Paris] like invented her [Kim].

In the Indian ad agency’s defense, they’re not completely misogynistic. The last ad shows three males instead of women being held against their will in the backseat. Check out the other two mockups below.

This is freaking awesome. I freaking love a good Disney Parody and this new sketch from College Humor is pretty bang on. The video is a parody of the new film, Spring Breakers which stars former Disney stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez who, with a couple other girls, let loose during Spring Break. Next summer, it’s the former Disney Princesses that take a turn and they “let looser.”

What happens in the Magic Kingdom, stays in the Magic Kingdom as four of the Disney Princesses decide to venture out for a wild vacation, showing a side of themselves we’ve never seen before. Abby Elliott (SNL) stars as Cinderella and joins her badass friends, Snow White, Ariel and Jasmine for one hell of an adventure. Jasmine suggests they rob Cinderalla’s “b*tch Stepmother” and then head on vacation for Spring Break. James Franco’s character is the Genie in this parody. Here are some of the best quotes from this faux trailer:

  • Prince Charming: [To Cinderella as he holds glass slipper] “Wear this… and only this.”
  • Jasmine: “Here goes, better throw my hand in, wish me happy landing… All I gotta do is… this bump.”
  • Ariel: “Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, under the sheets.”
  • Snow White: [as she eats an apple] “You just take one bite and it will f*ck you up.”

Watch the hilarious trailer below. It reminds me of The Real Housewives of Disney sketch they did on SNL. So good! Enjoy the video below.

Kids React To Harlem Shake

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

It’s safe to say that the Harlem Shake YouTube trend is over now. These things come and go so quickly (which is a good thing). That being said, earlier this week I came across a video of kids reacting to Harlem Shake videos and thought it was worth sharing.

Kids have absolutely no filter and they say exactly what’s on their minds… so you can imagine their reactions and they things they say when they see grown ups dancing around like weirdos in these viral Harlem Shake videos.

Watch the video below and although I was super into all of the videos when it was a thing, I’m ready to give it all a rest after this. Enjoy!
