Who didn’t love the ‘Rugrats‘ cartoon? With Tommy, Chuckie, and Phil & Lil always trying to avoid the manipulation of Tommy’s bratty cousin, Angelica Pickles. I’ll admit I was borderline past the age “watching cartoons” when still watching this show (which aired from 1991-2004). It was so good!

These days, it seems like so many of the shows we loved as kids are getting turned into live action films. So many of the Disney movies, ‘Carmen Sandiego‘, ‘The Chipmunks‘, and soon to be live action film, ‘Captain Planet‘. “Go planet!” Would it be a surprise if the same thing happened with ‘Rugrats‘?

In this Funny or Die video, a faux movie trailer for the live-action version of Rugrats promises to be “the most amazing (and disturbing) movie of 2012!” The video stars Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Sarah Ramos, and the handsome Michael Angarano.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) recently released the official poster for this year’s Oscar ceremony and now we have the first official video promo. Produced with Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die, the clip titled “Off The Grid“, features Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox on a worldwide hunt to track down Billy Crystal. Glad to see Fox is working again after that awful “Jennifer’s Body“. I digress. Along the way, the two bump into a couple of celebrity cameos. See if you can spot them out. Eventually they find Crystal hiding out in a cave somewhere in Mongolia.

“We wanted to try something a little bit different this year instead of a traditional, clip-based piece,” says academy chief marketing officer Christina Kounelias in a statement. “The trailer has a fun twist that conveys how excited everyone is to have Billy back.”

The entire piece has the feel of a summer action-adventure film rather than a stuffy traditional promo. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that show producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer have more ideas like this in store for upcoming promos and more importantly the show itself. I love the Oscars, but sometimes they can go on forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. You get my drift.

When I first heard that Eddie Murphy stepped down from hosting the 84th Academy Awards I was a little bummed. I thought he’d bring new energy and his unique comedic skills would liven up the marathon show. That said, I’m glad Billy Crystal was brought in to step up and save the day. The “City Slickers” star is arguably one of the best Oscar show hosts ever. Based on “Off The Grid“, it looks like Crystal hasn’t lost his touch. Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

While the year-end lists have been flying fast and furious, we haven’t been sharing a lot of Christmas videos. I’m not sure if it’s just because they are few and far between or because it’s really hard to surpass the awesomeness that was the viral video: The Twelve Gays of Christmas. While this new video that surfaced yesterday doesn’t match the gold star that the previous earns, it’s still be great and has a few special cameos.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Jim Carrey as Santa Claus, the trio find themselves re-enacting the story ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas while being narrated by Allan McLeod as so the prelude tells us, drank half a bottle of whiskey prior to the filming of this video. While he continually makes mistakes during the reciting of the classic poem, the director tells him to continue.

While the video doesn’t garner any huge LOL’s, it does induce enough laughter that’s worth the watch. Plus, who doesn’t love checking out Ryan Gosling at any cost, am I right? He looks pretty damn good in those pyjamas and sleeping cap I might add. Check out this Funny or Die exclusive below.

A new super hilarious Funny Or Die show called ‘Billy On The Street‘ is debuting in a couple days on Fuse TV, and we have a little sneak peak for you. The music and pop culture trivia game show is hosted by Billy Eichner. The comedian ambushes people on the streets to ask them to answer ridiculous questions with the hopes they will win a dollar. This isn’t something new to him, as he’s been doing it himself on YouTube for years. He’s a pro.

In the preview below, he asks questions like, “Miss, for a dollar, name two Anne Hathaway movies,” “Sir, little gay, little gay, which makes more sense, Tori Spelling or a crop circle?” and ”True or false, Celine Dion is 65 percent bird?” LOL. He even asks an old woman if she’d be into having a threeway with Michael Buble and Josh Groban.

In upcoming episodes, we can expect hilarious situations like Billy arguing with a toothless homeless man about whether it’s finally Glenn Close’s year to win the Oscar and in the third episode he almost gets into a fist fight with an old lesbian who doesn’t care about Moneyball. LOL.

Enjoy the preview below. I sure did. The show premieres on Fuse Thursday, December 22 at 11e/10c.

Sabrina & Salem: Together Again

In: Random Reads, TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

Ah, I miss episodes of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. I used to live for new episodes of the series on Friday nights. Plus, I am a sucker for anything Melissa Joan Hart really. But come on, this show was awesome. Talking cats, magic and a closet that took you places. The best. Unfortunately, the show ended in 2003 but in a new video from Funny or Die, Sabrina and her cat Salem are reunited for a little Mexican dinner date. The result is absolutely hilarious.

Salem and Sabrina are sitting at a table and catching up as Salem is explaining his new career ventures when the restaurants waiter comes up to the table expressing how much he loved the show and how pretty he thinks Melissa Joan Hart is. Then switching gears, Salem brings up the idea that the two of them just practice some magic together. Reluctantly, Melissa agrees and the result is crazy… literally. Watch the video below.

I don’t realize just how much I miss Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, until I see her pop up on some show or online video. When Mullally guest starred on an episode of “Happy Endings” this season as Penny Hearts’ mom, memories of her comic genius on “Will & Grace” came flooding back. While not the greatest daytime talk show host, there is no denying that Megan is one fine comedic actress. Some network needs to snatch her up and give Megan her own sitcom to star in immediately. Perhaps, the following video can provide inspiration for a new show.

For Funny or Die’s newest video, they’ve enlisted Megan to play the eccentric Peggy Dvorak. This acting coach teaches aspiring starlets the fine art of being cool. She takes these girls in and instructs them to throw conventional wisdom out the window and to become cool renegades. Toss out that boxed set of “Sex and the City” (guilty as charged) and trade them in for NPR (National Public Radio). Also an offense in Dvorkak’s teachings is listening or singing to Ke dollar sign ha aka Ke$ha. Again, I’m guilty as charged. What’s their punishment for committing such a heinous crime? Watch the video and you’ll find out.

Katherine Heigl has launched her campaign to help save the world… by eliminating testicles. That’s right, in this new Funny or Die video, she explains why she hates them and wants to get rid of them one by one (or two by two). The actress goes as far as to make a list of pros and cons to testicles. Here are a few of the ones she lists: Jiggly, look awful shaved, look awful not shaved, size fluctuates unpredictably, seems like an anatomical mistake, Muppet-like, and so on.

Fortunately for men and unfortunately for Heigl, she isn’t able to neuter men… yet, so instead she has focussed her efforts on ensure that pets get neutered. Sidenote, the hottie in the underwear who’s penis Heigl talks to in the video is actor Derek Theler, whom you may recognize from 90210 and Conan, among other projects.

Kristen Wiig, part of the Clinton Foundation’s Celebrity Division, has a bunch of ideas that may solve our global warming issues. In this new Funny or Die video, she explains a very simple and overlooked solution to global warming: breathing.

If the issue is carbon dioxide, well, we know every time we exhale we release the said gas with our breath. What if everyone held their breath for one minute every day? Wiig goes on to explain the different campaigns that could go along with the concept as well.

Earlier this year, Kristin Wiig was named one of the two sexiest vegetarians for 2001 by PETA. She’s all about a good cause and a good laugh. Take a deep breath (and hold it) and enjoy the video below!
