Sweded ‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer is Hilariously Awesome

Sweded ‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer is Hilariously Awesome
According to the Urban Dictionary, “sweded” is defined as “the summarized recreation of popular pop-culture films using limited budgets and a camcorder.” It originated from Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind and has had a life of its own in pop culture and on the Internet, where it has been turned into a meme.

Google Ass: A Camera for Your Butt

Google Ass: A Camera for Your Butt
Google is hell-bent on revolutionizing how people live and do things with Google Glass. It’s a hot commodity now, even though it’s still in its beta testing stages. I’m sure comedian Conan O’Brien agrees, although he has a pretty strange way of showing it.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Parody’: Lord of the Drunks
Contrary to popular belief, Hillywood is not a group composed of hillbillies who have nothing better than to do than make parodies of Hollywood’s most popular films. They’re actually a group of fine, upstanding folks who have nothing better to do than make awesome parodies of Hollywood’s most popular films.

Twitter Parody Accounts Hail the Eventual Arrival of the #royalbaby

Twitter Parody Accounts Hail the Eventual Arrival of the #royalbaby
So it’s official: Prince William and Kate are having a baby. To some, it’s great news. To the curious, it’s information worth knowing. To the vast population, it’s merely news that doesn’t have anything to do with them.

Facebook’s First Ever Ad Gets a Hilarious Toilet-Themed Parody

Facebook’s First Ever Ad Gets a Hilarious Toilet-Themed Parody
It’s no secret that Facebook’s not doing so hot ever since they went public. The social network recently hit 1 billion users and to keep their numbers up (and perhaps to try making Facebook more relevant?), they recently released their first ever ad.

Photoshop 6: Pro Wrestling Edition

Photoshop 6: Pro Wrestling Edition
Drew Dernavich noticed that some of the tools and techniques in Adobe Photoshop are borderline violent – warp, flatten, slice – so he wasn’t that surprised with what he saw when he got his hands on an advance copy of Photoshop 6.

The Unboxing Video to End All (Bad) Unboxing Videos

The Unboxing Video to End All (Bad) Unboxing Videos
Ideally, unboxing videos are great ways of sharing the excitement of inspecting a new gadget, tool or toy, but some people tend to focus on the act of unboxing and on the little details instead of the object itself.

Angry Birdsky ala Warhol: Video Game Reference Imitating Art Imitating Art

Angry Birdsky ala Warhol: Video Game Reference Imitating Art Imitating Art
Flickr member bortwein75 started off with a simple mash-up of Angry Birds and Banksy’s famous Flower Chucker. Thus was Angry Birdsky born:

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: The Characters That Didn’t Make The Cut

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: The Characters That Didn’t Make The Cut
Despite its huge roster, damage that racks up to millions and the inclusion of Deadpool, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 still has standards. There are levels of absurdity that they would never descend, like including joke characters.

We’re All Veterans of This War [Pokemon]

We’re All Veterans of This War [Pokemon]
I only played one Pokémon game, and I didn’t even finish it, so I don’t know if somewhere in its lore there’s a justification as to why the trainers don’t go to school. But if they did, this is probably how their weeknights would be spent:

1982 TRON Holiday Special Unearthed

1982 TRON Holiday Special Unearthed
Well, actually, there was no 1982 TRON Christmas show, but the guys at Funny or Die perfectly captured the feel of those horrible early Eighties holiday specials in this hilarious parody clip.

Today is Just Another Day. for a Meme.

Today is Just Another Day. for a Meme.
Apple’s hyperbolic marketing strategy works most of the time, but I’m sure even Apple fanatics will admit that the Beatles’ iTunes release pre-announcement was too much. Remember that claim? “Today is just another day. That you’ll never forget.” And we didn’t, because it’s the day Apple made it clear that it’s okay to make a big deal out of everything.

Tetris: Le Film

Tetris: Le Film
Everyone’s favorite block-stacking puzzler makes its big-screen debut in Tetris: le Film. Yeah, the only French I know is “Je voudrais une omelette au fromage“ but retro games are the universal language, no? non?

Grand Theft Auto on the NES Features Low Res Blood, Tanooki Suit

Grand Theft Auto on the NES Features Low Res Blood, Tanooki Suit
Video games have really come a long way, especially when it comes to marketing. For those too young to remember, CollegeHumor made a totally radical fake commercial for Grand Theft Auto on the NES. As ridiculous as the fake GTA was, the commercial freaked me out.

Pokémon: Gotta Buy ‘Em All

Pokémon: Gotta Buy ‘Em All
It must be insanely hard to be a Pokémon fan. For someone who’s been trained to “catch ’em all”, it’s bad enough that there are a hundred and one Pokémon games out there, there’s also the awesome merchandise to collect.

Iron Baby Blasts Enemies Before Nappy Time

Iron Baby Blasts Enemies Before Nappy Time
Stop motion master Patrick Boivin – creator of Ninjas Unboxing and Iron Man vs. Bruce Lee – made a short film starring his baby daughter. It’s about a rich and brilliant baby, who invents an armored suit to fight the bad bunnies.
