You may remember Blake Shelton had a Christmas Special on NBC last year. It was called Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas... and it really lived up to the name. Here is one of my favorite clips from that special. Blake and Larry the Cable Guy decide to go hunting... then things really escalate quickly. People who don't want to look at extreme claymation violence shouldn't watch, but if extreme claymation violence seems hilarious go right ahead.
Here is the latest thing that has caused me to laugh out loud at the office. A video of a squirrel (affectionately called Tippy) who keeps passing out. Experts think it might be a rare condition called Myotonia Congenita that causes muscles to suddenly relax (That is actually pretty common in goats, if you have ever seen a fainting goat video). I however like to think Tippy just might be enjoying some fermented pumpkins left out from Halloween too long.
Some amazing person has put a Muppet Thanksgiving Special on YouTube in it's entirety. It features special guest Arlo Guthrie and it is 25 minutes of warm fuzzies and Muppet comedy gold like Swedish Chef epically failing to cook various animals (cut to 8:15 to watch him tangle with a turkey) Worth a watch if you need a break over the holiday break.
Every year at Thanksgiving The President pardons a turkey, so that it may live free and frolic for the rest of its days (you know, instead of ending up as part of the biggest food coma of the year) . The turkey above is Cobbler, who was pardoned last year. But this year the White House is letting the public decide who is pardoned. It will either be a Turkey named Caramel, or a Turkey named Popcorn. Caramel is a soybean fanatic and enjoys Lady Gaga, Popcorn has a "Proud Strut" and is a Beyonce fan. Here are the full stats:
You can vote for your favorite at this "Turkey Website"
That website even has recording of their gobbles you can listen too.
Oh and also, I just found out that apparently both Turkeys are pardoned, but only one gets to do it during the big Thanksgiving ceremony... so you are really just voting to make a Turkey famous. I'm #TeamPopcorn... what are you?
You may have seen the latest commercial for Volvo trucks. It stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, I can't really explain it if you haven't seen it so here it is:
That entire scene is completely real. It was rehearsed, practiced, and filmed all in one day. You may not have noticed it but those trucks are going in reverse!
But Channing Tatum, noted Hot Guy (according to the ladies around the KICKS office, and lets be honest... just by looking at him) has upped the ante by doing his own comparable splits video... kinda...
I hope the end credits scene of the 21 Jump Street Sequel has Jonah Hill doing the same thing
