A Message from District 13 – Stomp The Yard

At first this teaser from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 just seemed kind of weird, then I realized they were just stomping the yard albeit with guns.

This part of the Stomp the Yard trailer fits seamlessly with the Mockingjay teaser:  What the hell are they doing?  They're stomping the yard.  Where are you from?"

Carl's Jr's Hot Dog Topped Burger Has Gone Too Far

This time Carl's Jr has really gone too far.  They introduced a burger that has two hot dogs and potato chips with a burger patty called The Most American Thickburger.

Who wants to eat that and why?  It's pretty much the equivalent of "bacon up that sausage boy," and your heart will definitely hurt.

Arsenal's Return of the Mack Parody

Unless Arsenal wins the FA Cup this weekend, this parody video of Mark Morrison's 90s hit "Return of the Mack" called "Return of the Fan" represents their greatest accomplish of the season.

The song replaces the original lyrics of "Return of the Mack" with Arsenal fans' lament about what to do during the soccer off season.

Arsenal players Per Mertesacker,  Aaron Ramsey, and Laurent Koscielny feature in the video while proving that a German, Welsh, and French person can't keep the same beat.

The real MVP of the video has to be Per Mertesacker who goes full drunk guy at a wedding by waving a towel and passionately lip synching.

If "Return of the Fan" was really truthful, it would have had the lyric, "You lied to me. You said you'd win the Premier League."

New Hamburglar: Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife

Mcdonald's decided it was time to update their Hamburglar character by making him a real person with a wife and son that's also very creepy in his spare time.

Maybe I've seen too many Criminal Minds and Law and Order SVU episodes, but he looks like the type of guy that commits sexual assault crimes with burgers.

March Madness 2015: Pop Culture Thoughts

1. Zaxby's 

I had never heard of this place before, but they paid a lot of money to show commercials during March Madness because they're always on.  Apparently it's quite popular in the South, and seems similar to Chick-Fil-A.  All I can think of when I see Zaxby's is chicken full of beard hair because they use the Duck Dynasty people as spokesmen.  I prefer my chicken hair free.

Why is Michelle Pfeiffer Mentioned in Two Current Pop Songs?

Despite not starring in a movie at the moment, Michelle Pfeiffer is name checked in not one, but two current pop songs:  Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars's "Uptown Funk" and Vance Joy's "Riptide."

At the 19 second mark of "Uptown Funk,"  Mars sings, "This hit, that ice cold Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold"  

On a side note can we all agree this song sounds like it should be on the 80s Ghostbusters soundtrack?

The Elmy Awards 2014

Sesame Street is back at it again with their parodies of TV shows such as True Detective, House of Cards, Scandal, and Sherlock.  In a video for Entertainment Weekly,  it pokes fun at the Emmys and various TV dramas.

According to Cookie Monster's Rust Cohle,  time is a round flat cookie that never completely satisfies your hunger.

The The House of Cards one is also great, but what really steals the show is the Scandal parody. Cookie Monster keeps coming back with plot turns that get more and more ridiculous yet true to the show.
