Tiger Woods: Lion King Edition

In light of the creepy and slightly ridiculous Tiger Woods’ Nike advertisement, several spoofs have materialized on YouTube.

Here is my favorite:

Hilarious! Do you have a favorite Tiger Woods’ parody?

Happy Susan Boyle Anniversary

Exactly one year ago, we were introduced to a middle-aged Scottish woman with a powerful voice. The instance when Susan Boyle walked onto the stage for Britain’s Got Talent was a moment destined for YouTube history. She proved countless people (namely Simon Cowell) wrong and has gone on to win the hearts of many fans. The road to success surely hasn’t been easy for Boyle, but her story – as a reality show contestant, as a viral sensation, as a tabloid fixture – will stand the test of time.

Her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” still gives me chills. Lin Yu Chan, you have nothing on SuBo.

The Shatner Procrastination Method

Procrastination appears in the strangest forms sometimes. Right now I should be working on my thesis. I even went as far as to put all of my books into my backpack so that I could go to the library. That has yet to happen. Instead I did laundry, did work for my other classes, updated my Netflix queue and scrapbooked. Now I am updating my blog. So all in all this has been a very productive afternoon. (Is it obvious that I am dying for Thanksgiving break to come as quickly as possibe?)

You’re probably wondering what my procrastination has to do with William Shatner. Not that much except that I decided to search “William Shatner” on YouTube. I made some grand discoveries. And I am going to share them with you here. Because, the most effective way to beat my procrastination right now is to export it to all of you.

And my favorite:

“Did you see this? It was on YouTube.” – Pam and Jim Get Married

I should not have been surprised when The Office replicated the wedding entrance that had everyone talking this summer. It is a brilliant piece of sitcom writing.

But the sweetest moment on the episode came after the dance when Jim told the cameras -“I knew we needed a backup plan. The boat was actually Plan C. The church was Plan B. And Plan A was marrying her a long, long time ago. Pretty much the day I met her.” Awwwww.

This episode perfectly captured everything The Office is about. The ending was a cliche and that was the point. But it allowed for all the wacky characters to have their moment dancing (or not dancing ,in the case of Angela) down the aisle.

There were endless great moments during the long-awaited Jim and Pam wedding episode

– Dwight, sitting at the children’s table
– Kevin’s kleenex shoes and hair piece, which I didn’t think that looked too bad.
– Michael’s wedding gift – a hand-painted portrait- and ending up with Pam’s mom at the end (Ew! but I can’t wait to see how that plays out)
– Oscar’s disgust when someone thought his boyfriend was Kevin; “You thought I was dating this? What the hell is wrong with you?”
– Pam’s suggestion that she and Jim take mental pictures throughout the wedding. And then she did during his toast at the rehearsal dinner.
– Andy’s accident (poor guy) and Pam driving him to the hospital. Priceless.
– Meredith’s afternoon cigars. Need I say more?

So clearly I loved the episode. How about you? Was this your favorite TV wedding of all-time? Because it was certainly mine.

And for good measure, here is the original wedding entrance:

Twilight Fans are Crazy

New footage of Twilight: New Moon debuted at Comic-Con yesterday. My only comment is that are a lot of screaming girls in the background.

These clips are nothing special; they just cater to the screaming audiences fantasies, which is part of the genius behind Twilight‘s marketing. I just don’t understand the need to scream every time Taylor Luatner or RPattz shows up shirtless on screen. Then again there was nothing quite like Twilight when I was an angsty pre-teen.

And nothing can top this Twilight nut.
