Sarah Palin Hockey Mom

Matt Damon condemns John McCain’s choice of hockey-mom Sarah Palin for Vice President. He compares the situation to a “really bad Disney movie” and says it’s crazy that this woman could become President.

It’s one of those situations that is funny because it’s true (albeit also frightening). The geniuses at CollegeHumor have taken the idea and run with it. Here is the fictional trailer to her, unbelievable, real life story:

SNL: Sarah Palin & Hillary Clinton

When John McCain met Sarah Palin for the first time, you have to wonder, did he think Hey, you remind me of someone.

Here’s a little SNL clip from the weekend of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton.

(Sorry Canadian and other international viewers, looks like this clip is for USA eyes only.)

Tab Cola Commercial

Here’s another one of those Tab Cola commercials from the 70’s early 80’s (previously). Same premise:

  1. hot bikini girl walks on the beach
  2. a man wants to drink Tab Cola
  3. girlfriend pours ice water on the man
  4. the man laughs because he realizes his girlfriend thought he was attracted to the bikini girl and wasn’t just craving a nice cool drink of Tab Cola
  5. Then everything is ok

Sprinkler Rainbow Conspiracy

There might be a problem in your country, but in this particular case, it’s a lack of basic science—I hate to encourage people laughing at someone that doesn’t know what they’re talking about, but it’s too good to resist when she announces that “this didn’t happen 20 years ago!”

Exciting World of Warcraft Sequel

The Onion News Network presents a story about a Warcraft sequel that lets you play a character playing World of Warcraft.

For the record, despite the fact that I’ve played a lot of video games in my time, I’ve never played World of Warcraft.

Air Guitar Nation

This summer my family is holding their once-every-five-year reunion out near Mountain View, just on the eastern cusp of the Rocky Mountains. One of the things we’ll be doing is rocking out with a music jam. Not everyone in my family plays an instrument, so I suggested that those not playing should bring their air guitars. I figured just about everyone can play the air guitar, but it wasn’t until I saw the documentary, “Air Guitar Nation” did I truly know the depth and potential of the invisible instrument.

AIR GUITAR NATION is the feature documentary about the year that air guitar swept America – from New York to Los Angeles and then all the way to northern Finland. AIR GUITAR NATION chronicles the birth of the US Air Guitar Championships and the personal journeys of those talented contestants who are vying to become the first World Air Guitar Champion from the United States. Every August, the Air Guitar World Championships bring thousands of fans all the way to Oulu, Finland to see the world’s best air guitarists battle it out for 60 seconds of mock stardom. For years, the USA was missing in action. Enter the first official US Air Guitar Championships. What starts as a friendly contest above a New York strip club becomes a battle of naked ambition played out on the national and, ultimately, the world stage.

Here is a short clip from the movie, please enjoy as C. Diddy gives the most amazing air guitar performance you’ve ever seen:
