Sometimes, a video comes along that perfectly encapsulates the culture. At one point, it was “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Then came “The Sneezing Baby Panda” and, of course, “Drummer at the Wrong Gig.”
Now, in 2017, is the time of the “White Bear Mitsubishi’s Gopher Hockey Outtakes — White Bear on Ice.”
This video delivers. You want to see a bear mascot slipping on ice over and over? Well, you got it. The description asks “How many takes to have a White Bear not slip on the ice during a commercial shoot?” But the real question is how many times can we ask. The answer: As many as it takes.
Enjoy this video, bookmark this video, and watch it whenever you’re feeling a little blue.
This is your failsafe.
Save your receipts because if you don’t like something the Gap will accept your return, apparently.
This Gap employee accepted a return from almost 17 years ago, and trust us, this manager is nothing happy about it. Still, the red shirt-vest combo looks pretty dope.
The worst part of all, the manager can’t figure out which one of his disrespectful employees returned the garb, so they had to post this sad letter to the wall.
When will you kids learn to follow protocol?!?
Apparently the answer is a resounding “No.”
Billy Eichner, the screaming, yelling, hollering host of Billy on the Street, hit his normal beat this week with John Oliver of HBO’s Last Week Tonight. As per Eichner’s thing, he wants to deflate the star of whoever is on the show with him. Sometimes it’s telling people that Seth Rogen is dead when Rogen is standing right next to him, and this time it was asking gay people if they
care about John Oliver.
Accosting people on the street and asking them if they're gay and "care about John Oliver, Billy gets to the heart of one of the most pressing questions of the modern age: "Do gay people care about John Oliver?"
The answer, for the most part, is still no. But one thing Eichner does discover that they love Wendy Williams.
Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith is the movie your annoying friend points to when you mention how much you didn’t like the prequels. They say this despite this scene:
But finally, someone actually fixed Episode III, so that it’s watchable. You may remember about ten years ago, when the movie hit DVD, people were sharing a clip of the movie overdubbed in Mandarin with the English subtitles on, resulting in this in the Do Not Want meme.
Well, a YouTuber has decided to go back and overdub the whole movie with those subtitles, resulting in the official way we all have to watch Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, or how it will forever be known Star War The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West.
So now Anakin’s classic line “From my point of view the Jedi are evil” is now
Check out the amazingly-named YouTuber, GratefulDeadpool's work here:
It’s the happiest moment of your life, when that special someone pops their shirt off and pops the question.
Some people don’t know how to react to this? For some, a tearful “yes” will suffice. For others, falling through a stage is the only response.
That’s what Texan woman Endyugi Shoedarsono did when her shirtless boyfriend proposed to her during a music festival in Dallas. Mediaite reported, “Boyfriend Jeff Jackson got on one knee at a Crizzly show to ask her to marry him while Colton Carlyle filmed the whole thing and caught the tumble.” True love exists.
Endyugi’s ok, though. She posted on Facebook.
Don't feel too bad, Edyugi, it happens to the best of us. Even Kelsey Grammer, TV's Frasier.
Can’t wait for the movie!
The new book Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration by David King is for sale on Amazon.
By all accounts, it’s a real book. There’s a jacket, a spine, paper pages, etc. By all accounts David King is a real author. The cover even declares him a “political analyst.” By all accounts, the unaccredited review on the cover, which reads “‘Refreshingly honest’” underneath five stars, is a real review. It has to be real or else why would they put it there?
The information inside supports this argument. King’s latest treatise on that why reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month deserves trust, respect, and admiration is completely empty, not a word in it. It’s filled with blank, empty pages. Any question? The book’s description clears up any questions:
“This book is full of blank pages. Despite years of research, we could not find anything to say on this subject, so please feel free to use this book for notes.”
Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is on sale now for $7.99. It’s Prime ready and the page features this advertisement:
Does that mean Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration is one of the best books of 2016? Probably not, but it really makes you think.
There are a lot of videos of people passing out on rollercoasters. There are a lot of videos of people making weird noises on rollercoasters. But there’s only one video where the Windows startup music plays every time this guy passes out on a rollercoaster.
Let’s just say this video delivers. It’s 60, uninterrupted seconds of a man in a pink shirt passing out on a rollercoaster. What’s more, every time he passes out, get this, the Windows startup music plays.

To paraphrase Men’s Warehouse founder George Zimmer, you’re gonna love watching this video. I guarantee it.
While the president-elect is tweeting over her, a giant rooster with his haircut is cock-a-doodle-doo-ing in China.
Perhaps inspired that real-life bird that looks like the former reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month, an artist China has unveiled a huge (read: yuge) rooster statue in Taiyuan, Shanxi, China. The bird resides just outside a shopping mall for all to see.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The Pheasant Elect <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Trump2016?src=hash">#Trump2016</a> <a href="https://t.co/337iuJC2Zf">https://t.co/337iuJC2Zf</a> <a href="https://t.co/mcVUvAnN8W">pic.twitter.com/mcVUvAnN8W</a></p>— Kim (@JBaileysMom) <a href="https://twitter.com/JBaileysMom/status/798260246678368256">November 14, 2016</a></blockquote>

The statue celebrates both the upcoming Year of the Rooster and four years of the Trump that we’re all kind of stuck. According to Mashable, “The statue was commissioned by the mall's owners and miniature versions of it are reportedly being sold inside and on the Chinese ecommerce site Taobao.”
One things for sure: That rooster’s got cool hair.
Getting coal as a gift is one thing, but using gifts as coal is quite another.
One dad pulled a page out of the Jimmy Kimmel Guide to Parenting and gave his kids a traumatic experience for Christmas. Who says Christmas is over?
When his kids wouldn’t go to bed or something, YouTuber Scotty B asked his daughter to get a gift from under the tree. He then took the gift and tossed into the fire. That’s when all Hell (or just some well-deserved whining) broke loose.
His daughter called mom, and what happens next will blow your mind.
Dad reveals that it was just a Christmas joke, and the girl threatens, “I’m still telling my friends on you.”
Seem harmless enough until you realize her friends include Santa Claus. Game. Set. Match.
Tying a tie is basically impossible, especially when you need some guy who isn’t your father to help you tie. Just ask this college kid who had the cop that pulled him over teach him how to do it.
When college student Tevor Keeny was pulled over for speeding by Officer Martin Folczyk, he admitted that he didn’t know how to tie a tie, telling Folczyk that he was rushing to a friend’s house because his friend knows how to tie a tie. That’s when the cop arrested him and threw him in jail.
Just kidding, the cop taught him to tie a tie.
Ugh. He’s not even the kid’s real father. What’s next, he’s going to expect to play catch with this kid he pulled over? Is he going to teach him to shave? The cop isn’t even his real father!
For Global News Calgary’s Leslie Horton, double dipping isn’t really going to be a problem.
While sharing her favorite holiday recipes on air last week, Horton admitted that something had gone “terribly wrong” with her artichoke dip. The congealed substance in a glass bowl known as “artichoke dip” looked closer to scrambled eggs and smelled of “vinegar,” despite there being no vinegar in the recipe. Her colleagues looked on in horror, fearing that they might be next to try.
“It’s not supposed to look like that,” someone off camera moans.
Everyone around the table looks visibly disgusted, with Leslie’s first victim eyeballing the dip in terror. Another comments, it “smells like a barn.” Leslie watches in glee, like a Bond villain monologuing their plans for global domination. Another spits up the dip.
“Is it edible?” asks anchorman Scott Fee.
The clip climaxes when meteorologist Jordan Witzel takes his first bite.
“At first, I’m like, ‘Well, it’s not that bad,’” he says. “But then the vinegar!”
“But there’s no vinegar,” replies Horton.
Other great moments: Anchor Amber Schinkle screaming “It burns.”
Apparently, Horton didn’t have the proper ingredients for the recipe, substituting an orange for lemon and just adding celery salt and oregano for no reason what so ever.
Watch the clip and remove Leslie Horton from your invite list.
Life hack: If your oven’s on the fritz, try sending a pie to space. Wait, what?
A crew of space fanatics called SentIntoSpace, who refuse to clean their oven or something, attached a camera and GPS to a meat and potato pie and sent this baby to space. Eat your heart out, Easy Bake Oven.
According to Mashable, SentIntoSpace claims that they wanted to see if the flight into space altered the molecular structure of the pie, making it easy to bake.
Just another pie in the sky story on Twitter: a meat & potato pie was sent into space from Wigan yesterday for 'scientific research'... pic.twitter.com/OjfdS9hnfk— BBC Breakfast (@BBCBreakfast) December 16, 2016
“It was hoped that the pie would freeze as it soared from the earth's crust and would be cooked as it speeded up on re-entry.”
But we all know that it was just because their oven was broken or worse, they don’t know how to use that thing. You know, sometimes it’s just better to ask how to use it. Call your dad or something. Google it. I don’t know.
