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.

'Glee,' 'Idol' vets play jilted Disney villains in 'Chicago' spoof 'Spell Block Tango' -- VIDEO

“And then he ran into my tentacles. He ran into my tentacles EIGHT TIMES!”

Todrick Hall started his career as a finalist on American Idol, but the filmmaker has since become something of a YouTube sensation among a certain type of pop culture enthusiast. He’s riffed on Beauty and the Beast, CinderellaMean Girls and The Hunger Games, and just in time for Halloween, Hall has debuted his latest subject: Disney villains and singing murderers.

Hall has enlisted the likes of fellow Idol vet Adam Lambert, Glee’s Amber Riley, So You Think You Can Dance alum Blake McGrath, and more for “Spell Block Tango,” a delightful revision of “Cell Block Tango” (from the Broadway musical Chicago) as performed by some of Disney’s greatest jilted ladies — and Scar, duh. How else could these villains channel their frustration with the animated heroes who had it coming?

The whole thing is an epic watch, and an absolute must-see if you’re a fan of Disney, Chicago, or just well-choreographed production numbers in general. Behold!

Ohio State's marching band performs awesome tribute to Hollywood blockbusters -- VIDEO

Why can’t every halftime show be performed by the Best Damn Band in the Land?

Earlier this month, The Ohio State University’s resident ambulatory geniuses wowed the world with an intricate tribute to Michael Jackson. Just one week later, they pulled off another stunning feat — a blockbuster-themed show in which band members formed shapes including Superman in flight, dueling pirate ships, a nail-biter of a Quidditch game, and even Jurassic Park‘s resident T-rex devouring a Michigan football player… then spitting out his helmet.

In short: The Super Bowl could stand to learn a thing or two from the NCAA. Are you listening, Bruno Mars?

So here's what happened when Tom Hiddleston did 'SNL Korea' -- VIDEO

Self-proclaimed “lucky old sausage” Tom Hiddleston — a.k.a. the Marvel Film Universe’s Loki, god of mischief, madness, and evil — is having a grand old time touring around Asia. On Oct. 12, he posed in front of Beijing’s Qianmen; later that day, he posted a selfie from atop the Great Wall.

Soon afterward, Hiddleston traveled even farther east to taste the fruits of Seoul — including a guest spot on SNL Korea. (Yeah, SNL Korea is a thing. Since 2011! And their version of Weekend Update includes a pre-recorded weekly segment called “Wise Search for Life,” in translation!)

But I digress. Video of Hiddleston’s appearance has hit the Internet, and it is predictably charming. You may not understand what most of the people in this clip are saying — but watching an old lady tweak Loki’s nipples is funny in any language.

Alison Gold's 'Chinese Food': Singing about food proves worse than Instagramming about food -- VIDEO

ALLISON-GOLD-CHINESE-FOOD.jpg

The Rebecca Black Corollary — a.k.a. Ark Music Factory — has spawned another evil, and this time she’s hungry (for more than just milk and cereal).

Any artist has been told to write/paint/sing what you know. Our girl Alison Gold (hopefully a stage name, so this won’t haunt her LinkedIn when she’s trying to land an entry-level marketing job in eight years) is just singing about her passion: “Chinese Food.” And more disturbing than this song’s terrible Auto-Tune is its cracked-out music video. WHAT IS HAPPENING?

It's Always Sunny in ... Japan? 'Dayman' gets an adorable schoolkid makeover -- VIDEO

These kids officially have the coolest teacher ever. Remember Charlie’s musical The Nightman Cometh on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which the gang took on the road back in 2009? Well, these Japanese kindergartners certainly do.

A video, which was posted on YouTube in August and just went viral, has eight schoolchildren singing Charlie’s epic “Dayman” song — which works surprisingly well as a kids’ song, considering the show’s typical content. Their pantomimes for “karate and friendship for everyone” are especially adorable.

Meet Ylvis, the comedic brothers behind the accidentally successful 'What does the Fox say?'

the-fox-02.jpg

For a video that was created to fail, “What does the Fox say?” has been incredibly successful, totaling more than 120 million views … but that wasn’t Ylvis’ intent. They swear.

Brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker are hosts of Tonight with Ylvis, a late-night talk show in Norway. And when it came time to prepare a promo for their new season, they called on a favor they had with some guys over at Stargate, a Norwegian production company that has produced hits such as Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” After Ylvis helped one of the guys at Stargate prepare a birthday gift, the company had promised to produce something for the comedy duo in return, and now the guys were ready to cash in their I.O.U.

Oh, just Coolio crashing a college party and singing 'Gangsta's Paradise' -- VIDEO

Is Coolio the new Bill Murray?

These English college students would answer “yes.” Earlier this week, University of Central Lancashire attendee Olivia Johnson-Aley ran into the rapper, who offered to cook for her and her housemates the following night. According to Johnson-Aley, “that’s exactly what happened” — and partway through the night, she and her pals “decided to take a break from the cooking and have a jam session.” Clearly, too much television watching got her chasing dreams — but in this case, those dreams came true.

'Carrie' marketing stunt goes viral: What if telekinesis were real? VIDEO

Okay, Carrie marketing team: We’re officially listening to you.

The folks advertising Kimberly Peirce’s upcoming “reimagining” of Stephen King’s classic horror story — starring Chloe Grace Moretz as superpowered outcast Carrie White and Julianne Moore as her religious nut mother — really upped their game with the following video, which captures an elaborate promotional prank set up in a humble New York City coffee shop.

First, you’ll see a flurry of prep work — the construction of a fake wall, a stuntman attached to a wire, mobile tables and chairs powered by remote control. Then, as the video puts it, it’s “time to f— with some customers.”

If the explanation had followed footage of the stunt itself, the video might be a little more magical. (Not to mention the crew didn’t do a whole lot to try to conceal the stuntman’s wire.) Even so, it’s pretty damn cool. Watch below — and if you encounter any teenage girls today, remember to tread lightly.
