It’s Will Arnett’s turn to play with David Koechner in the latter’s series of commercials for Denny’s. (The spots starring the Anchorman actor, as you may remember, are called “Always Open with Dave Koechner.”) And there are so many delicious things about the latest ad: That grilled sandwich, the apples in the painting behind Koechner, “dolphin eyes,” and Arnett’s mere presence, to name a few. Yep, nothing says breakfast like a little talk about nudity and murder. Also: Arnett’s chokehold at the end of the commercial? Even more verification that he may be The Office‘s Scranton Strangler. Grab on to the commercial below!

It looks as though a lot of time and money went into a new campaign for Skittles. Of the five videos I first viewed via AdFreak, two were actually funny to me (“Cat,” pictured, and “War Finger”*), two fell flat (“Hitchhiker” and “Cage Cop”), and one was just oddly unsettling (“Skittles Girl”). I think I have a good sense of humor, but I could be wrong. Watch them below and tell me which ones work for you.
[SPOILER ALERT! Do not click ahead if you haven't yet seen last night's finale!] Last night, Mike Isabella and Richard Blais duked it out for the title of Top Chef All-Star. They each created their own restaurants, which gave them a chance to show Tom, Padma, Gail, and guest judges Lidia Bastianich and Hubert Keller what they’re truly all about. And the honor went to…

I think we accomplished exactly what we set out to do this season. We brought back 18 of the most talented chefs on the show who did not win to get them back in the kitchen to see how they did, but also we stretched the show even further — took the challenges further, made things more complicated, exciting and delicious. I’m really amazed, looking back, at how much great food there was, how much I learned about the chefs, and how much I learned about food. I think every chef on this season has a lot to be proud of. We made them work for it, that’s for sure. READ FULL STORY »
If you haven’t seen the season finale of Top Chef: All Stars yet, DO NOT CLICK AHEAD! After Richard and Mike opened their own full-fledged restaurants — Richard’s pegged to modern spins on classic dishes (shocker!) and Mike’s an ode to Italian flavors (also a shocker!) — the finalists duked it our for the ultimate culinary crown. And now that the results are in, your very first Top Chef All-Star is (SPOILER ALERT)…
Looks like the Candy Land movie is jumping ahead a few green spaces: Universal confirms with EW that Kung Fu Panda writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger are set to write the adaptation of the popular board game, while Kevin Lima (Enchanted) is attached to direct the film. It’s tasty news for those of us who are not allergic to the idea of a board game on the big screen — though I understand a Candy Land film mostly gives studios the opportunity to profit off of merchandise in Target’s game aisle or at your local theater’s snack bar, I can’t resist the draw of a project that aims to present all of the game’s sugary, nostalgic images in a fantastical, color-laced feature. It will be just like Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” except with fewer whipped cream boob guns! But now that we know the project is skipping along, let’s get to the important stuff: Let’s cast Candy Land, The Movie! READ FULL STORY »

Antonia, Richard and Mike had stayed consistent and strong throughout the season. Each of them had won a ton of challenges and kept moving. Each of them individually wowed us. It never plays out quite how you think, but I was really glad they were the final three.
The whole Quickfire was absurd. We knew it was absurd. We just kept piling it on to see how they’d react. They all did really well considering all the twists they were given. They all delivered edible food, which I think is a pretty big accomplishment at that stage. Mike had one pot and nothing else. You never how someone else will react to the challenge you give them, and they also never knew there would be a second twist. Cooking with one pot is a challenge but a realistic one. But cooking with one hand behind your back or tied to someone else isn’t. Simple challenges can be the hardest, and I think it’s because they over-prepare. They’re not able to stand back and simplify. They get caught up in trying to do too much. But in this case, the three of them are actually really good at restraint. READ FULL STORY »
Dave Koechner’s last lunch at Denny’s with Jason Bateman was so delightful that I rushed back for seconds. This time, Koechner dines with Sarah Silverman, she of the “approachable good looks.” It’s a very different — creepy! — vibe this time around. Koechner’s earnest bearing and puppy-dog enthusiasm is steamrolled by Silverman’s desert-island brutality and rectal blemishes, but the comedienne does deliver the best — first? — Neve Campbell impression ever attempted. Their bawdy sit-down didn’t make me want to throw down a wholesome Denny’s Grand Slam breakfast, but I’m still hungry for future videos. Take a look at the new College Humor video: READ FULL STORY »
