Here’s one for the Sunday night, to wrap up the weekend.
During my weekend interwebz trawl, I came across this hilarious website, which is essentially a repository of photos of the site’s contributors taking pictures with other tourists, mimicking their poses.
How funny (and embarrassing) would it be if you saw yourself in one of these photos?!
At the Eiffel Tower in Paris:
Macchu Picchu in Peru (“watch me pat my imaginary llama!”):
A hilarious commercial selling body wash. Who’da thought it’d go viral? 11 million hits, yo!
Check it, below.
Both taken in a single continuous shot too.
Isaish Mustafa, the Old Spice man, reveals secrets of the commercial here:
FotC stands for Flight of the Conchords, a two-man band from New Zealand who perform folk-comedy songs about serious issues like business, AIDs and racism (and sometimes about leggy blondes).
Branding themselves as “formerly New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, Bret and Jemaine’s brand of humour is sometimes wry, witty with clever lyrics to their songs but mostly just plain silly.
Clearly, not everybody will appreciate their songs / antics, since attention must be paid to the lyrics to get the jokes (and we Singaporeans are notorious for our short attention span, among other things), which are usually delivered with a deadpan face. To all you people who just don’t *get* it, I say you guys are missing out!
(Then again, I guess it doesn’t matter since you don’t really know what you’re missing out on.)
Anyhoo, after all this preamble I’m sure we’re all itching to see some action so behold below, the genius of FotC!
Starting with some serious world Issues:
Moving on to some important Business Time:
Something that robomon can relate to (let’s hope he’s not wishing that Humans Are Dead):
And to top it all off, some clean non-expletive-ridden rap, featuring the Hiphopopotamus and the Rhymenocerus:
Everyone loves Pac-Man. It’s a classic game, easy to play and transcends all ages. But few ever think about the ghosts that he eats / runs away from (depending on whether you’ve got him to eat the flashing dot). To be fair, they are the villains in the game and everybody roots for the hero, so…
Anyway, as everyone knows, Pac-Man recently turned 30, and Google paid tribute on its landing page by turning its logo into a web-based version of the classic game.
Well, it’s two weeks later and Pac-Man fever does not seem to have died down at all, judging by this guide to Pac-Man Ghosts, which includes the regular ones in addition to more exotic species. Finally, the ghosts seem to say, someone that appreciates us!
Don’t you just love the Kim Jong Il and the KISS versions?! Hello Kitty freaks me out a little though, but perhaps that’s just my inner Hello Kitty-hating self speaking.
Happy Monday everyone! Here’s to surviving another week.
