Lucille Bluth vs. the Disney Princesses

So I went a little nuts with Vine!

Boozy-witchy Bluth matriarch Lucille has generously taken time out of her day-drinking to snap some sense into the damsels of Disney. They could all stand to lose some weight, by the way. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair. (Click the microphones on and off to hear the audio.) READ FULL STORY

Is the 'Call Me Maybe'/Nine Inch Nails mashup as good as these classics?

The greatest mashup artists don’t just find two songs with similar-sounding titles, smoosh, them together, and call it a day — they make ingenious connections between two or more tunes that seem as though they’d have nothing in common, combining them in a way that’s both totally surprising and perfectly coherent.

Take, for example, pomDeterrific’s “Call Me a Hole,” a crazy/good/crazy good mashup of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and NIN’s “Head Like a Hole.” There may be only one thing on which both fresh-faced teens and NIN fans can agree: This song is awesome.

Jimmy Fallon's Tebowie returns with Peyton Manning jam -- VIDEO

Tim Tebow’s career may be up in the air, but Tebowie’s is hitting its stride. The football farceur returned for another performance on Tuesday’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, this time addressing Peyton Manning’s move to the Denver Broncos.

“Tebow prayed to God, begging him to smite the Mannings and find him a job. Just not on the Lions, but maybe the Giants, have him and Eli switch, oh payback is a bitch,” sang Tebowie, a.k.a. Jimmy Fallon, in jaunty boots and a jersey.

Tebowie is one of the late-night host’s most popular singer characters. (He’s previously also spoofed Pearl Jam, Justin Bieber, and Neil Young). Channeling the Broncos quarterback and David Bowie, Fallon let loose with a Ziggy Stardust rip addressing Manning’s recent move to Denver, which will likely shake up Tebow’s future and push him out of town. Watch the performance (complete with fuzzy ’70s camera effects!) below:

UPDATE: Looks like New York (where Fallon’s show tapes) can expect to see a lot more of Tebow, as the quarterback has just been acquired by the Jets in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick. Does this mean we’ll get more Tebowie!?

Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up? Romney turned rapper in 'Shady' mash-up — VIDEO

If you think this is just a casual mash-up of Mitt Romney sound bites overlaid onto the beat from Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady,” you’re in for a harsh reality check.

A fellow named Hugh Atkin deftly created an entire rap parody of the 2000 hit song by splicing together hundreds of quotes from Romney, President Obama, Newt Gingrich, and other political pundits into one masterful example of the power of clever editing and attention to detail. If Thelma Schoonmaker decided to transition into government-themed hip-hop mash-ups, this would be the result. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
