Perform This Way (Parody of "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga)


If you've never heard of Weird Al Yankovic before, he's a one-man parody machine. In the past, he's written and performed parodies of songs by Michael Jackson, Madonna and Coolio (Amish Paradise in a must-watch). 

Now, it's the turn of Lady Gaga...

Why we love...T-Mobile adverts

T-Mobile have been behind some of the best adverts of the past year. Last year they impressed us with their singing and dancing flash mobs. This year, we've been treated to a Royal Wedding parody dance, and now a real-life version of Angry Birds.

Who else really wants to try this out?

However, I'd love to know - do adverts like this make you more inclined to consider T-Mobile in the future? I'd love to know if the ads have had a positive impact on their business, in terms of profit as well as reputation. 

What do you think?

Video: The most romantic proposal ever?

Late last week, a friend popped this video up on Facebook. Now, I'm not usually a weepy person, particularly when it comes to videos. But even I was sniffling over this deeply romantic proposal.

Cute video: Ultimate Dog Tease

It's Thursday. Not just any Thursday though. It's the Thursday after a generous sprinkling of bank holidays. Which means it's the longest Thursday EVER. Admit it, this week has seemed unreasonably long, right?

*Sigh*

Let's make today a little more bearable, with a cute video of a dog talking.

Feel better now?

The Royal Wedding cartwheeler

What was your favourite moment of the Royal Wedding? The vows? The kiss? Will and Kate departing in a vintage Aston Martin?

I loved all those moments, but this particularly moment was my favourite.



The verger, also known as a clergy assistant, was caught on video excitedly running through the abbey and launching himself into a couple of cartwheels

The man in cloth, Ben Sherward, was said to be expressing his joy at how well the service had gone, according to a spokesman. Whatever the reason, it was nice to see someone who's usually so serious being so joyful about the Royal occassion.

What was your highlight of the Royal Wedding?

The T-Mobile Royal Wedding

You might have noticed a few murmurs recently about a Royal Wedding...

Well, murmurs and the visual assault of a million Royal Wedding products.

But one of my favourite things about the RW, is this video from T-Mobile. Who doesn't want to see Prince Harry shimmying up the aisle eh?

Hurrah! It's the Easter bank holiday!

eastermonster.jpg

We're currently enjoying the sunshine, lots of chocolate and some afternoon Pimms, as we hope you all are too!

We'll leave you with this slightly relevant clip from Friends, when Joey buys Chandler a chick for Easter. 

*Disclaimer* Don't try this at home kids, a chicken is for life, not just for Christmas.

How are you celebrating the Easter bank holiday?

Video of the week: LOLestation

We've all been there after checking Facebook. A computer left innocently unattended, a mobile phone 'borrowed' by a friend. An hour or so later and you discover you've been the victim of...LOLestation.

Your relationship details have been changed, your picture doctored and your status is excruciatingly embarrassing.

Here, to tell you more about this Facebook crimewave, is the team at The Unexpected Items.

"I had pokes back from my neighbour, my old chemistry teacher, June Sarpong....". Brilliant.

Have you been the victim of LOLestation?

Behind the scenes on the Old Spice videos

Hello Ladies.

I really quite fancy the Old Spice man. Really, how could you not? The man combines the voice of Barry White with the body of an underwear model and the witty-isms of...well, a rather excellent copywriter.

But have you ever wondered how he manages to whizz from a hand-finished kitchen to a motorbike submerged in a tank of water? Wonder no more, as we've got our hands on the behind the scenes video for the latest Old Spice ads.

Do you love the Old Spice man?

The King's Speech...featuring Mike Tyson and George Bush

Ah spoofs, the lifeblood of YouTube. It was only a matter of time really before a spoof of the Oscar winning film The King's Speech made it online. And what better subject for speech therapy, than George Bush?
