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.

Queen Latifah offers job to woman behind 'I Quit' viral video

A University of Missouri graduate who used a dance video to quit her job with a Taiwanese company has gotten an offer to work on the website of a daytime talk show.

Marina Shifrin of suburban Chicago became an Internet sensation after her choreographed performance to Kanye West’s “Gone” was posted on YouTube.

She was a guest Thursday on Queen Latifah’s talk show on Fox. The host asked Shifrin if she wanted to work as a digital content producer on Latifah’s website.

At first Shifrin thought Latifah was joking, but the host insisted she was serious. Latifah said a short interview would happen backstage.

The show ended without disclosing whether Shifrin had taken the position.

Check out Shifrin’s video below:

'Between Two Ferns': Zach Galifianakis gives Justin Bieber a stern talking to -- VIDEO

If every joke contains a grain of truth, then the following video is a veritable rice paddy.

Okay, that was a stupid analogy. But still: Zach Galifianakis really doesn’t pull any punches while interviewing Justin Bieber for the latest episode of “Between Two Ferns.” He starts out by telling Bieber how exciting it is to have him on the show, “especially right in the middle of [Bieber's] public meltdown” — and things only get more brutally honest from there. Here’s a sampling of the Hangover star’s outrageous follow-up questions, all of which are  greeted with stony silence from Bieber:

“When you’re in the recording studio, do you ever think ‘Hey, what if I don’t make something sh—y?’”

“You’ve had three hairstyles. What’s next for your career?”

horse-ebooks

It’s been 77 days, and something has definitely finally happened. What that something is exactly isn’t so clear. Popular Twitter account Horse_ebooks and YouTube channel Pronunciation Book released information today on a new art project/ alternate reality game (ARG) platform, Bear Stearns Bravo (BSB). It’s weird, cool, and more than a bit confusing, so we parse through the Interwebs to figure out just what this all is.

Norwegian talk show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker asked the question “What does the fox say?” And although we’re not still not exactly sure what the fox says, we are sure what Fox says. In response to the viral video, which now has more than 33 million views on YouTube, the television network rounded up its stars and clips from its biggest shows to create its own rendition of the viral video. Turns out, Fox makes some crazy sounds.
