Drake Hotline Bling Video and His Crazy Dancing

Good news if you really enjoy watching Drake dance awkwardly to his own music because that's essentially the whole music video for his single "Hotline Bling."

It's like some weird modern art / interpretive dance exhibit featuring Drake dad dancing in a box that changes color.  My dad breaks out those kind of moves at weddings.

The Karate Kid Revisted

It had been awhile since I had seen The Karate Kid all the way through until recently.  The movie is great and still has its 80s charm, although I noticed some quirks I never did before.

1. Ali Throws Herself at Daniel

Daniel stops playing soccer to make extended well over a minute, creepy eye contact with Ali and she's all about him.  Not only does Daniel do nothing to warrant this, but he is actually a jerk to her.

Six Takeaways From True Detective Season 2

Season two of True Detective was a divisive show.  Some people loved it while others hated it.  Here are my six takeaways from it: (spoilers below if you haven't seen the show yet)

1. Weird Sex Hugs Result in Babies

There were a lot of weird things this season on True Detective this season, but the weird pre sex hug between Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and Velcoro (Colin Farrell) may have taken the cake.

It went on much longer than it should have, and was uncomfortable to watch like junior high kids trying to figure out what to do with their bodies.  That said, you can't argue with its one and done baby making results.

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.
