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.
Lonely Planet: Introducing a new line of travel guides written entirely in LOLcat. A spokesman reportedly said: “We lovez teh world. Kittehs want to conquer it. Iz a perfect match.”
Ikea: The furniture maker has been aggressively looking at “pet furniture needs” according to this YouTube video. They created the Hundstol, or a high chair for your dog. Call me crazy, but I think people would actually buy this.
ThinkGeek: The site unveiled a mini Apple Store playset. Complete with accessories, it even features Steve Jobs making a presentation. Again, people might actually buy this.
Hulu: Awesome site design makes everything look it comes from the mid-1990s. Complete with era-appropriate TV shows as well.
Ivar’s: So this one is pretty Seattle-specific, but hilarious just the same. Unless you’ve been bured in a hole for the last few months, you know that Starbucks decided to drop all words from its logo. Well, Ivar’s appears to have copied them with this latest brand redesign.
Carl’s Jr.: The fast food chain introduces us to the “Original Six Dollar Tofu Vegan Burger.” The company boasts, “Stacked high with lettuce, mushrooms, soy cheese and julienne carrots, these mouth-watering tofu burgers will take you on a wild ride to Flavortown.”
YouTube: Really only one here. So, for their April Fools prank YouTube decided to create a page that would enable the user to relive videos from 1911. As Gawker points out, every video on the site (formerly) allowed the user to click a “1911” button that would strip things of sound and add some weird music. For some videos, this was funny. For videos about 9/11 or the recent Japanese tsunami, this was horrible. Someone didn’t think through that one very much. On a lighter note, they did produce a funny video in the theme.
Eminem joined a very select club this past week, though he might not welcome his company. Along with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, Eminem now has 1 billion views on YouTube. Despite many critics claiming his career was on the decline, the Detroit rapper proved them wrong in 2010.
His latest album Recovery landed 10 Grammy nominations and 2 Grammy awards, and sold more than 741,000 copies in its first week. That album landed him his three most frequently watched YouTube videos: “No Love” (46 million), “Not Afraid” (203 million) and “Love the Way You Lie” (292 million).
The artist has made the transition to the digital age. Three million Twitter followers, 29 million Facebook fans and topping Billboard’s Social 50 in 2010 prove that.
For a while it seemed like third place to one billion views might go to Michael Jackson. When Justin Bieber hit one billion views last year, the King of Pop had 600 million. He’s lagged behind since then though (he’s at 630 million now).
Contending for forth place include artists like Shakira, Britney Spears and Rihanna.
