Matt Is Dizzy

29 May

Watch out, David after Dentist!

Young Matt had to go in for surgery because of a broken arm. Then, he woke up and won the Internet.

Best line? “I just farted. You know what I’m saying?!”

How long until he’s on the Today show?

PS: He’s dizzy.

5 Best “Call Me Maybe” Parody Videos

28 May

An earworm called “Call Me Maybe” has swept the United States over the past couple of months (major points to Gawker for TOTALLY calling it). The song is, pretty much, the definition of the perfect pop song and its success proves it. Carly Rae Jepsen, the singer of this ballad, is nearly ten years older than fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, but the Biebs spotted her first.

Anyways, the song is pretty awesome and has spurred an unending supply of parody/lip sync/ weird cover versions. Here are the five best.

1) Bieber and Believers: Justin Bieber and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, apparently had a pretty wild night with some fellow tween stars. They capped it off with this amazing, low quality cover that prompted everything else to be done.

2) Katy Perry: In what has to be the oddest collection of friends ever, Katy Perry sings (and provides hilarious commentary) to the infectious song. Look out for Zooey Deschanel too (apparently she’s famous?).

3) Violin Cover: Don’t know why, but this is kind of fun.

4) Harvard Baseball and Every Other Sports Team Ever: This video now has around 1/8 of the total views of the real video. A bunch of guys from the Harvard baseball team were clearly bored, and prompted EVERY SPORTS TEAM IN THE COUNTRY to record one of these videos.

 

5) Staples Center Crew: I flag this one because it’s the perfect use of social media to raise awareness of your brand. It’s something fun for the staff that utilizes something everyone is talking about. Oh, and cheerleaders, if that’s your thing.

If These Two Videos Don’t Make You Cry, You Have No Heart

8 May

Two beautiful videos tonight. They should make you well up with emotion because they are that poignant.

1) Welcome Home Solider: A young man serving his country in Kuwait surprises his father-in-law with a surprise visit. The bulky, grown man is overcome with emotion.

2) Kids With Cancer: The children at Seattle Children’s Hospital make an inspirational video against cancer. It’s set to Kelly Clarkson’s anthem “Stronger.” Whatever you think is going wrong in your life, keep it in perspective. These kids, battling one of the hardest things a person can battle, are staying strong through love and courage. That’s an inspiration to us all.

Katy Perry Covers “Niggas in Paris”

19 Mar

Pop princess Katy Perry apparently has a thug side. Who knew? She appeared on BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge where she covered Kanye West and Jay-Z’s popular “Niggas in Paris.”

What do you think of her censored version of the rap classic?

Fabrice Muamba “Critically Ill” After Suffering Heart Attack During Soccer Match

18 Mar

Fabrice Muamba

A FA Cup quarter-final match between the Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur was abandoned after midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed during the 41st minute of the match. The soccer player remained in critical condition on Sunday morning.

Doctors and paramedics performed sustained resuscitation efforts on Muamba for well over five minutes on the field before removing him. Muamba was “not breathing” as he left the field and was taken to London’s Chest Hospital. Doctors were able to eventually get his heart working again. The Guardian reports Muamba’s heart was not working independently for two hours after the cardiac event.

Club Manager Owen Coyle later told the media, “Fabrice is critically ill. The next 24 hours are going to be absolutely crucial. We’ve obviously been inundated with people wishing him well and we hope that if everybody can pray strongly tonight that Fabrice is able to recover. It’s very serious. There’s not getting away from that. He’s critically ill and God willing he makes it through.”

The crowd of 36,000 held their heads in silence as Muamba was removed.
