Holy ’90s blast-from-the-past mashup, Batman! She’s All That star Rachel Leigh Cook joins Saved By The Bell hottie, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Growing Pains legend, Tracey Gold in a hilarious new Funny or Die video tackling the crimes of the craft world and the black market world of Etsy.com. In the intro to the video, the site is explained as follows: “To many, it’s the website that women all over America turn to when their poetry careers don’t take off. But beneath it’s crafty veneer lies a teaming, unregulated black market and one person rules it all with an iron fist.”
In the following video, we learn that Etsy is run by a maniacal queen named Ellie Harper (Rachel Leigh Cook). After Maggie Chester (Tracey Gold) is attacked by the Queen of Etsy, FBI Agent Michael Peck (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) investigates. Harper is one woman that you don’t want to mess with. If you’ve seen Savages, she’s essentially Elena, which was Salma Hayek’s character (minus the accent and the drugs).

Earlier this month, Measure B was passed thanks to L.A. voters and it requires that all porn actors wear condoms. Needless to say, it’s been a controversial topic from both sides of the fence… and continues to be.
In a new Funny Or Die video, Steven Hirsch (the founder and co-chairman of the adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment) explains how they have taken things one step further by consulting top safety experts. Examples include prevention methods for carpal tunnel syndrome when giving HJs, wearing a face shield to avoid any bodily fluids in the eye, wearing a helmet while on a sling, and more safety precautions. Watch the video below.
The sexy and funny Dave Franco (who is one of the leads in the Now You See Me movie trailer that just came out) plays a game of “Would You Rather” with Talia Tabin (Parks and Recreation) in a hilarious new Funny or Die video.
The two childhood friends find themselves in increasingly awkward and funny situations when their game of “Would You Rather” takes an unexpected twist: the choices they make start coming true. For the first time ever, they can make anything come true, just by offering it as an option in the game. Will they use their power to make their fantasies become reality, or will the temptation to mess with each other be too much to resist? Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) and Dave’s mother, Betsy Franco co-star as well.
This isn’t the first game Dave Franco has played for Funny or Die. He has also done a couple of “You’re So Hot” videos with Mintz-Plasse that are definitely worth watching if you haven’t. First, check out the new “Would You Rather” below to see what outrageous scenarios become reality.
This is actually pretty funny. With the world becoming more and more obsessed with social media as part of their daily life, this new Funny or Die video demonstrates that even secret agents are not immune to this dangerous addiction.
In the faux movie trailer, Kellan Lutz plays the world’s deadliest secret agent, but he has one fatal flaw: A dangerous addiction to social media. His commanding officer urges him, “Dammit Hashtag, this mission is top secret! Stop posting on Instagram!” Hashtag responds, “It’s okay, I recovered the nuclear codes.” The commanding officer responds, “I know, I saw your Tumblr post!” That’s not the only social media he uses. In the trailer he live tweets his car chases, follows his suspects on Pinterest, tags villains he’s about to kill on Facebook, and even when he finds himself in danger, he checks into the underground torture chamber he’s being held at on Foursquare.
The icing on the cake is when you find out what the motive is for the main villain in this fake movie is and who his character is. Enjoy!
Skyfall, the latest Bond film starring Daniel Craig, opened in theatres over the weekend and achieved record breaking numbers for the 007 franchise. I personally haven’t yet seen it but am hoping to get my butt to the theatre some time this week to check it out.
In a new Funny or Die video, film critic Elvis Mitchell presents this lost James Bond classic from the 70s, To Have and To Gold. A film that was written, directed, and starring a man named Gil Edmundberry (played by SNL alum Chris Kattan). Also starring in the faux film is Bojana Barovic.
As with all Bond movies, the film has it’s own unique title theme song and opening sequence. Check out the funny video below.
As we all know by now, Betty White loves animals (as do I). She even made it clear that she loves them way more than she loves people.
In a new Funny or Die video promoting the upcoming Hero Dog Awards, Betty White is backstage where Mad Men‘s Ben Feldman (who only watches the Kardashians) greets her and her dog. Everything is all about the dog and it seems that Betty White (or “this woman” or “mam” as Feldman refers to her) is just taking up space and getting in the way. Needless to say, Betty is not used to getting such treatment and is taken back by this douchie guy.
American Humane Association‘s Hero Dog Awards is set to air on the Hallmark Channel on November 8, 2012. Watch the funny video below.
This was one of the funniest comedy rap videos I’ve seen in a while. The Funny or Die video is called ‘Yoga Boners‘ and it stars Andrew Bancroft (a.k.a. rapper Jelly Donut) and Daveed Diggs.
In the video, the two guys decide to check out yoga with the only reason to take in the eye candy that they’re surrounded with. In no time at all, the guys become visibly aroused and commence their rap about their sizable yoga boners. Seriously, the lyrics made me burst out laughing. “I’ll spank, spank, spank your blank. I like your dolphin, you come here often?” LOL. That’s funny, but my favorite of all was, “”Dude. You know what they say. You can’t spell ‘namaste’ without most of ‘nasty.’”
As a side note, earlier this week I got a membership for Yoga – not having done it in years. I’ve gone to a few hot yoga classes so far and I’m loving it. So far I haven’t encountered the same problem these guys had. Enjoy the video below!
I just came across a really funny short film called Teacher of The Year which just so happens to be an Official Selection for the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The film is online and you can watch it below!
The short film is a day in the life of Ethan Collins, a severely depressed, foul-mouthed elementary school teacher. Ethan shares his thoughts on life, love, and the historical accuracy of the school textbooks with his third grade class. The first thing he writes on the board is “Marriage = Settling.” LOL. Ethan must rely on these kids in addition to a kindhearted colleague named Abigail, if he is going to… actually, you know what? Screw it. He’ll probably just lose his job.
The film stars Gil Zabarsky as the teacher, along with Kathleen Littlefield and Rachel Dratch. Find out what happens in the Teacher of the Year short film below.
