As you know, Anne Hathaway has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Miserable – and let’s face it… she’s probably going to win.

In this parody, Actress-singer Emma Fitzpatrick pretends to be Anne Hathaway as she sings a parody version of Hathaway’s Les Mis song, “I Dreamed A Dream” and it’s called “For Your Consideration.” After winning best supporting actress at the SAG Awards, Golden Globes and Critics Choice, Hathaway reminds the Academy, one last time, why she must (and will) win at the 85th Academy Awards. Here’s an example of some of the lyrics in the song/video: “I played a prostitute who died / Her life was really sad and awful / But I was bold and unafraid / I let them give me this new haircut / And I lost half my body weight / But then they never did a wide shot.”

This isn’t the first parody or video that makes light of her role in the film. In fact, before Christmas, she and Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) had a “Sad Off” in a Funny or Die video where they both tried to one up each other in terms of who’s character had it harder in their respective films. Make sure you watch that video if you haven’t, after you watch the video below.

We are just days away from the Super Bowl XLVII and the commercial previews keep on coming. At the same time, the rejected commercials are also getting released and the following video is one of those that was not accepted.

The commercial is from the website, Pornhub.com, a website with countless pornographic videos that seem to address what anyone might be into. Gay, straight, male, female... literally everything and most types of fetishes. With that, I think they wanted to release a commercial that highlighted the fact that they have something for everyone… and that may be that what one person likes to watch may be different from what their partner would watch. I dont’ think that they every expected it to get accepted – I think it was literally just about the attention from not getting accepted. Here’s the press release from Pornhub:

“Super Bowl TV network CBS has stepped up its defensive line ahead of this Sunday’s big game, blocking a proposed multi-million dollar commercial from Pornhub.com…a CBS spokesperson offered this brief response via email to the website’s proposal: “CBS Television Network Standards do not permit advertising related to pornography. Therefore, we cannot accept your submission.”

Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said: ‘The Super Bowl is the Holy Grail of ad spots and given our website’s huge following in the US, we developed a G-rated commercial that we felt would meet the network’s advertising standards.’”

Watch the commercial in question below. The ad isn’t racy per-say, but it’s just the website that it’s promoting that obviously isn’t “family friendly” for television.

If you’re a fan of Mean Girls, Suburgatory, Gossip Girl, or even the hilarious Teen Girl Squad web series from long ago, then you’ll love this crude comedy stop motion “Barbie” web series called The Most Popular Girls In School. It’s been around since 2011, but I only came across it when a friend showed it to me today and it’s effing hilarious. There are thirteen short episodes in the first season, and there’s a season 2 in the works right now!

The series uses Barbies and stop motion animation to tell the story of the girls that attend Overland Park High School. A new girl named Deandra joins the school and finds herself caught in the middle of a feud between the Van Buren sisters and the head cheerleader, Mackenzie Zales (who is my favorite character). It’s seriously hilarious.

I’ve included the series playlist below. At the very least, watch Episode 2 – that one had me laughing so hard. Brittnay Matthews gets so worked up about this French girl named Saison who says “How You Say” before words she clearly knows how to say and it drives her crazy. You should know that Mackenzie also has one hell of a potty mouth. Enjoy the The Most Popular Girls In School series below!

One of my favorite things to watch is those moments when a hilarious comedian cracks up. Anytime Kristen Wiig cracked up on SNL or that hilarious and infamous Disney sketch with Debbie Downer & Lindsay Lohan – epic! Well, Ryan Steele has released his blooper reel for 2012, revealing all of those laugh-out-loud moments that didn’t make the final cut.

From moments where they messed up where they were saying to the countless times where they cracked up when becoming conscious of how hilarious they probably sound or look in whatever the outrageous scene may me. Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy have to say and do some pretty effed up things in these wacky videos so it’s always fun to see them crack up at the hilarity of it all as well.

With so many familiar Vancouverites in the video, keep your eyes peeled and you might even catchy myself and fellow Homorazzi cast member Nic at a few points throughout the video. I’m wearing a hideous wig and Nic is shirtless at the end.

With the Super Bowl coming up next Sunday, a lot of companies have been preview their commercials ahead of time and setting all the buzz in motion. Toyota has revealed a couple new commercials for their new RAV4 that star Big Bang Theory beauty, Kaley Cuoco as a sassy, pretty in purple genie.

In one of the spots, she shows up at a family’s home and starts granting their wishes. As always, be careful what you wish for! In the second spot, she walks down the street with her chihuahua by her side with Skee-Lo’s “I Wish” playing in the background. She grants the wishes of people around her with the snap of a finger. When she gets into the RAV4, the guy in the passenger seat is “a rabbit in a hat with a bat,” which of course come from the lyrics of the song. Too funny.

Watch both funny commercials below.

Best News Bloopers Of January 2013

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

Normally these news blooper compilations don’t start to come out until later in the year. This year, however, with combination of so many bloopers having taken place in January 2013 and someone being really on it with putting these clips together already, the first batch of “laugh out loud” news flubs is here.

From news anchors not knowing that the camera is already rolling, to crazy unexpected incidents that are live on location, or unforgiving slip of the tongue flubs, it’s everything you hope for in a video montage like this. There’s even a clip of Meredith Vieira with Hoda Kotb where Vieira doesn’t realize the camera is rolling and says, “Sh*t!” which totally caused Kotb to lose it and burst into laughter. Towards the end of the video, we see Al Roker going crazy over trying to get President Obama and Vice President Biden‘s attention at the Presidential Inauguration. Over and over, he’s shouting at the top of his lungs, “Mr. President! Mr. President! Mr. President!!…”

Watch the hilarious news bloopers from January 2013 below. Can’t wait to see what other goodies unfold over the year!

Celebrating 30 years of Diet Coke, the soda company has unveiled it’s brand new sexy TV commercial starring Andrew Cooper as their new Diet Coke Man.

In the commercial, a group of ladies are in a park gabbing away, while one of the ladies notices a hot guy mowing the lawn. She seems to be the “horny” one and signals to her girlfriends to watch what she’s about to do. She decides to get the guy’s attention by rolling a can of soda over to him. Of course everything is in slow motion and sexy music is playing in the background. Given that the can was just rolled over, when he opens it, it litterally explodes all over him... I’m thinking that’s what the woman wants him to do in return… only not with Diet Coke. LOL.

As you can expect, he’s got to get that sticky shirt off of his body and it’s mission accomplished for the ladies. Watch the sexy new commercial below.

Who’ll Win The Coke On Super Bowl Sunday?

In: Donovan, Random Reads

All you white powder-loving druggies, calm down. It’s NOT that type of coke, but Coca-Cola ;) Side note: Did you know that the beverage is sold everywhere in the world except two countries- Cuba and North Korea. Had no idea until I wrote this post. Learn something new every day.

We’re a week away from the big game and while some are looking forward to the battle between Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, others are hyped about Beyonce’s halftime show and Destiny’s Child reunion. For this huge consumer, it’s all about those big budget commercials. I.CANT.WAIT!!!

The soft drink company recently unveiled a teaser for their Super Bowl spot airing next Sunday. Titled “Coke Chase,” the commercial features three groups- Cowboys, Showgirls, Badlanders- vying for what seems to be the only drink in the desert. Who will win? Well, that depends on you. Through a series of ads airing on Super Bowl Sunday, viewers can voice their preference through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms or on www.cokechase.com.

Being a huge Priscilla: Queen of the Desert fan, I obviously cast my vote for the showgirls. Check out the commercial created by Wieden & Kennedy below. FYI: Dan Wieden, one of the founding owners of the agency coined the iconic “Just Do It” Nike tagline.
