‘Anne Hathaway’ Sings About Her Oscar Aspirations To The Tune Of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’

'Anne Hathaway' Sings About Her Oscar Aspirations To The Tune Of 'I Dreamed A Dream'

It should be clear by now to anyone with the ability to read and/or listen to interviews that Anne Hathaway is a shoe-in for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Les Miserables. But between her acting, her weight loss, and her ultimate sacrifice (looking pretty), it can be hard to keep track of all the reasons. Thankfully, someone made a video racpping all of them for us in song. More »

Samuel L. Jackson’s Taylor Swift Parody Is Better Than All Other Taylor Swift Parodies

Samuel L. Jackson's Taylor Swift Parody Is Better Than All Other Taylor Swift Parodies

Is there anything that can’t be improved by Samuel L. Jackson? Good action movies, cheesy action movies, and the civil rights movement have all benefitted from the addition of one Samuel Leroy Jackson. Now, he’s even improving the saccharine country-pop of Taylor Swift by recording his very own version of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” It is the best Taylor Swift parody yet by far, but I’ve included some runners-up to demonstrate just what kind of group we’re working with here.

Video Gallery: 8 Hilarious Sesame Street Pop Culture Parodies

Ah, Sesame Street: Making television for toddlers palatable to adults since 1969. Not only did it revolutionize educational television, but perhaps even more impressively, it made sure that the parents, teachers, babysitters, and other adults watching the show with their favorite three-year-olds wouldn’t go crazy from its inanity. And what exactly is it about the show that makes it so amazing, however old or young you are? Its pop culture references. Little kids may not know who Isaiah Mustafa is, but their parents certainly do. Let’s take a look at some of Sesame Street’s best pop culture parodies, shall we? You just might learn something yourself! More »

Video: ‘Born This Way’ in the Key of Magneto

Video: 'Born This Way' in the Key of Magneto

Shortly after the release of X-Men: First Class, YouTube user TheWarpZone wrote an absolutely hilarious X-Men themed parody of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” He also issued a challenge: If the video of him just playing the song on an acoustic guitar in his room got enough views, he’d make a full video for the song. Lo and behold, he has apparently received sufficient viewing figures, because earlier in the week, this glorious piece of work emerged. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s something about a supremely awkward Magneto holding an electric guitar (did you notice that it floated up to him via his amazing magnetic powers?) and surrounded by dancing girls that really does it for me. There’s a lot of in-jokes for fans here, too; a variety of X-Men make appearances, and it’s kind of fun to play Spot-the-Mutant. I found Juggernaut, Gambit, Jubilee, Wolverine, Banshee, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Pyro, Professor X, Mystique, and Jean Grey; did you catch anyone I missed, readers? More »
