Apple's 'Misunderstood' commercial: Have yourself a merry little cry -- VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 10.18.29 PM

Uh oh. You better sack up and secretly edit poignant home movies on your iPhones, pouty teens!

Apple’s new 90-second Christmas commercial just had me sobbing into my own iPhone as I went about my usual antisocial business of splaying out on the couch, ignoring this great big wondrous world around me, and playing with filters on Instagram. Here’s how good Apple commercials are: I didn’t even need to see this one to know I was already obsessed with it — much like your sulky teen won’t ever need to make real eye contact with his relatives to know and eventually show that he loves them (if you’re lucky) (and if you’ve purchased him an iPhone 5S).

Obviously, I did look up at one point… then replayed this commercial again and again. You wanna cry? READ FULL STORY

'Hunger Games' theme park? We have some ideas

Panem may become the hottest new vacation spot.

Lionsgate, the studio behind the Hunger Games movies, announced in a conference call with analysts this morning that the company had been approached about Hunger Games theme parks in two territories and was considering the possibility, according to Variety. No further details were given.

It obviously makes financial sense for the Katniss empire to expand; the first film made over $690 million, and people seem a little bit excited for Catching Fire, opening Nov. 22. Ignoring the pesky fact that starving districts full of poor people looking toward revolution as a way to end their suffering isn’t the most upbeat concept (and blatantly misses the point of the books), let’s brainstorm some ideas about what  Adventureland: Dystopia Edition would look like, should it happen.

Muggles rejoice! Butterbeer is now being served at Starbucks

Harry Potter can’t be real, your friends explain to you every holiday season, you can’t even order Butterbeer at restaurants not named The Three Broomsticks.

Well, this week Starbucks proved if you wish for something long enough, it’ll come true and then your friends can’t make fun of you much anymore. Butterbeer, the beloved drink that Harry, Ron, Hermione, and so many others down regularly throughout the Harry Potter books, is coming to Starbucks, per a note at Dalebacar.com.

Video of David Hasselhoff 'singing' Fresh Prince theme song is everything you want it to be -- VIDEO

“David Hasselhoff singing the Fresh Prince theme song” is a phrase Hump Day dreams were made of.

Vimeo user Matthijs_Vlot has taken the tried-and-true method of YouTuber Baracksdubs and created a video that has the former Baywatch star talking his way through every word of Will Smith’s iconic rap. The cut-together clips feature all of Hasselhoff’s iconic roles, meaning — for the few of you out there that this applies to — your Knight Rider/Fresh Prince cross-over fanfiction just got a go-to visual.

The best part? The video is called Rip-Hoff pt. 1, people. Check it out below, and start crossing your fingers pt. 2 features The Golden Girls.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel's annual 'I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy ' prank

Oh, Jimmy Kimmel, you sneaky late night show host!

Kimmel held his third annual “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” prank last week and created another video of your children in utter sadness and devastation, for your enjoyment of course.

His team received so many submissions that it took them a whole weekend to sift through through videos of crying children. Oh to be so young and precious that the sight of an empty pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket crumbles your world to Reese’s pieces. Some memorable bits? Inconsolable blond brothers wailing like banshees and rustling through tragically empty wrappers and a daughter whose tantrum is foiled by the force of gravity.

Michelle Pfeiffer discusses being part of cult that didn't eat food

Hollywood may be known for its weird diets, but Michelle Pfeiffer took things to a whole new level when she thought she could exist on sunlight only.

The revelation comes from a recent interview Pfeiffer did with The Sunday Telegraph‘s Stella. The actress explains that when she first came to Hollywood, she fell in with a group of personal trainers. “They were very controlling,” she shared. “I wasn’t living with them but I was there a lot and they were always telling me I needed to come more. I had to pay for all the time I was there, so it was financially very draining. They believed that people in their highest state were breatharian.”

Breatharians believe that food is superfluous (!) and that sunlight provides all the nutrition a person needs. These people clearly failed a basic-level biology course, but Pfeiffer said she didn’t realize she was part of a cult until she was introduced to her first husband, actor Peter Horton. “He had been cast in a film about the Moonies,” she shared, according to the Telegraph, “the name given to followers of Rev Moon Sun-myung’s Unification Church. She said that while she was helping him with research ‘on this cult’ she realized: ‘I was in one.'”

Surprise! Miley Cyrus shows some skin for Halloween

She’s just bein’ Miley Lil’ Kim.

While the rest of us are strapping on teddy bears and seeing just how far our tongues can stretch for our Miley Cyrus costume tonight, Cyrus herself is channeling a different musical provocateur. The One Who Twerks uploaded a bunch of photos to her Twitter account last night that show her channeling Kim’s get-up from the 1999 VMAs — purple pastie and all.

'Mindy Project': Should Mindy and Danny get together? -- POLL

The Mindy Project is slowly becoming all about the boys. A random episode or two excluded, the show has been less a workplace comedy and more about finding Mindy a boyfriend. Which is fine — many viewers prefer the witty banter between Dr. Lahiri and her paramour of the week (farewell, Pastor Casey!) over watching Morgan doing something dumb and/or silly at the office. But fellow doctor Danny is an enigma. I can’t work out my own feelings about whether the paramour waiting in the wings to sweep Mindy off her feet should be recently divorced Danny Castellano.

The show doesn’t seem like it knows what it’s pushing either. For most of the first season, Mindy and Danny were set up like a classic sitcom will they/won’t they couple. They bantered during work hours, kind of hated each other (Oh, Mindy! As someone who watches as many romantic comedies as you do should know, that’s a clear sign of attraction!), became friends/kind-of confidants of sorts and then — right when it looked like a smoldering Danny was going to make a move — Mindy decided to up and move to Haiti with Pastor Casey.

Run! Watch a supercut of scary movie attempted getaways -- VIDEO


It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s time to break out the scary movies.

And no matter where the scares are coming from, it seems all the titles have one thing in common: People attempting to run away from whatever deranged murderer, ghost, possessed demon or girl crawling out of a television (thanks for the nightmares, The Ring!) it is that is after them. But it wouldn’t be nearly as thrilling if they got away. Check out this supercut of people falling down while attempting to get away from their nightmare come true. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga outdoes herself in new crazy outfits -- PHOTOS

It’s Lady Gaga’s Wonder Emporium.

The singer is ramping up promotion for her new album Artpop (dropping Nov. 11) and that means in addition to traveling the world — she’s debuting a new song off Artpop in each country she visits — she also found the time to take a few Instagram selfies in hotel rooms.

The over-the-top photos, see below, represent a bit more dramatic look than Gaga has debuted in a while. While over the past year, her outfits have seemed comparatively toned down — like her all-white ensemble at Good Morning America —  she now seems to be craving the attention, err, applause, that only a naked photo with mustache can bring.
