This handsome Major League Baseball player you likely recognize as third base for the NY Mets. His name is David Wright (or Mr. Wright Now… as many can only dream). He’s 28 years old and he was drafted to The Mets back in 2001, making his MLB debut in 2004. Had he not been drafted by The Mets, he had originally planned to go to Georgia Tech and major in engineering.
Unfortunately for Wright, a couple weeks ago it was found that he had a stress fracture in his lower back. As a result, the injury may force him to miss out on many games in this 2011 baseball season.
As a MLB player, he of course makes a lot of money. In addition, as part of the endorsement deal that he had with Vitamin Water, he owned 0.5% of the company. When the company was sold to Coca Cola for $4.1 billion, he then made $20 million on the deal. Cha-ching! Although he makes a lot of money, he goes to bat for some great causes as well. He started the David Wright Foundation whose mission is to increase awareness about multiple sclerosis and to raise money for multiple sclerosis organizations and projects. In 2008, he even was recognized as “Sports Humanitarian of the Year”.
I have to say I’m a fan of these Funny or Die and CollegeHumor funny faux interviews as a way to help promote upcoming movies. Remember the “You Again” one? I died.
This weekend, Bridesmaids opens up in theatres and today we share with you Funny or Die’s “Hungover With Bridesmaids”. The interview that chats with the cast is beyond hungover after having attended a wedding the night prior and slept with a guy named Kyle. The cast, which includes Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph among others, try to push through the interview as best they can with the trainwreck interviewer they’re stuck with. What advice do they have for her? Find out below.
I’m watching a screening of the film tonight so watch for my review this Friday. I have a feeling this movie is going to make me shed some tears…of laughter.
I know what you’re thinking: “Don’t all Ark Music Factory videos go wrong?” Well, I guess it depends on how you look at it. Considering Rebecca Black’s “Friday” music video has well over 100 million views now, it’d be a stretch to call that a failure. For those of you that don’t know, Ark Music Factory is the company that created Rebecca Black, specializing in grooming preteen pop star wannabes and helping them with their music videos.
In the following Ark Music Factory Parody, a faux teen girl is singing about “Besties Night,” having her girlfriends over for a slumber party. Well, what could possibly go wrong? If you remember in Rebecca Black’s video, there is a rap verse where some older gets his own little cameo/rap while driving around. Well, the same thing happens in this video, except the rappers (who look like “The Creepers” from The Lonely Island) show up at the girls “Besties Night” and the slumber party turns into a big shaker…and Tommy Lee shows up. And then…
Find out what happens below.
Now the final Funny or Die video (at least of the ones that were shown that night) is here. This one is called “The Bitch with Brian Austin Green“. No, I’m not referring to his wife. Of course we remember him 37 year old Brian Austin Green best as the sexy David Silver on the original 90210. In the past few years, he’s come back into the spotlight, and one of the big attention grabbers was him marrying Megan Fox. He’s also been to Wysteria Lane, guest starring on Desperate Housewives, as well as some other projects on the side.
In the following video parody, B.A.G. stops by “The Bitch,” which is essentially “The View” of the future, only run by dogs with voice boxes. The leader of the pack is Bow Wow Wow Wowo (aka Barbara Walters), along with Litzabitsy (Elizabeth), Woofi (Whoopi), and Happy (Joy). LMFAO.
Yesterday, Skynet’s machines didn’t rise, but today, clouds of smoke will. If a gust of wind happens to blow a familiar (or unfamiliar) smell your way today, that’s because it’s 4/20 day: a day that celebrates the consumption of cannabis. The term actually originated in 1971 in California by a group of teens that called themselves the Waldos. It was first a code word they used to refer to an abandoned cannabis crop they heard about, and they would meet at the wall outside the school at 4:20pm to discuss. Long story short, the term evolved into meaning pot-smoking in general.
Now every year, people gather on University campuses or in major metropolitan areas to celebrate the occasion by…you guessed it, smoking a lot of pot together. In 2009 in Vancouver, about 10,000 people gathered by the Vancouver Art Gallery to take part in the occasion, and no arrests were made. Every year in San Francico, thousands of people gather on Hippie Hill to celebrate there. These two are just a few of many 4/20 celebrations that take place throughout the continent.
In the following Funny or Die video, a group of guys head out for a night of partying at the bar. Shots, shots, shots, and more drinking is in order for the guys. As the night progresses, we then compare their night of alcohol to a night of weed. LOL. Check it out!
Last week, Donovan and Alex attended SVEDKA Vodka’s Night Of A Billion Reality Stars here in LA. That night, they debuted three Funny or Die videos showing “The Future Of Reality TV“. We’ve shown you one so far (included in the recap from that night), starring Jeff Probst.
Now, here’s the second one with the legendary Joan Rivers (who we met yesterday) in “TMI With Joan Rivers“. In this glimpse into the future of reality tv and plastic surgery, Joan takes it one step further when she decides to remove her body. Listen to the people from TMI (a parody of TMZ) as they talk about what happened to her when the paparazzi got too out of control. Where’s Melissa when you need her.
Check out the video!
The sexy Jordana Brewster, starring in Fast Five, is introducing her new fragrance in this new Funny or Die video. “Hot Dog Water. For when you want to be treated as a professional and smell like a hot dog.”
I have to say, this video is bang on for what these celebrity endorsed fragrance commercials are like. Watch how the world around her changes when she splashes on a little hot dog water for a night on the town. All this time, people have been throwing their hot dog water down the drain. Not Jordana, she knows a money making opportunity when she sees one. All kidding aside, the bottled hot dog water with chunks of hot dog makes me want to gag. The video is worth watching though – check it out!
If you’ve been missing the star of The City since it the show didn’t return after last season, you’re in for a treat as the star, Whitney Port sits down for a “Table For 2” with awkward funny, man Jonathan Daniel Brown. In this Funny or Die video, the two head to Pink Taco in Los Angeles for dinner, but Port soon realizes this guy has ulterior motives. Sidenote: If you recall, Pink Taco is where they cast of The Hills used to go for their dates as well, so I guess Port is missing her old hangout.
Watch the video and see their dinner date fall apart as the night goes on. You even get to see Whitney’s jaw dropped “O” face. Also, check out waitress. She’s also hilarious.
