Posted two days after their graduation, the video is a shot-by-shot recreation of the iconic opening credits sequence in Friends — fountain, lamp, orange couch, Phoebe’s striped socks, umbrellas, and all. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Funny or Die: Adam DeVine promotes shaving (and humor!) in new webseries

Writer-actor-comic Adam DeVine is already at work prepping the next seasons of Comedy Central’s Workaholics. The network has ordered his other series, Adam DeVine’s House Party for the fall, and he cameod in Arrested Development. Between all of that, DeVine found time to do a web series… selling Norelco shavers?

That’s right: The company approached the actor with a pitch, he says: They’d partner with DeVine and Funny or Die for a series of “funny little videos” about the highs and lows of body hair. DeVine said yes — giving us “Special Unit’s Unit” earlier this month, with two more videos to follow.

The newest one is called “Dude House.” DeVine plays a dude. Shaving (and humor!) is involved. Watch the video, and read our chat with the actor about the ins and outs of his Norelco partnership, below.

Joss Whedon speaks to Wesleyan grads: 'This is a good commencement speech!' -- VIDEO

It’s the season of finales, summer movies, and celebrity commencement speeches. Joss Whedon — no stranger to the first two — spoke to the assembled graduates of his alma mater, Wesleyan University, this weekend. His speech expounded on the contradictions “between your body and your mind, your mind and itself” and was alternately rueful and humane, with a killer hook: “Don’t just live, be that other thing connected to death. Be life.”

His opening line? “Two roads diverged in a wood and…” Just kidding! But seriously, kids: “You are all going to die.” (What is this, a Joss Whedon show?)

The full text is here. Check out the video, starting at 2:40, and some of Whedon’s best lines, below.

Bono, Olivia Wilde, and Richard Branson join Matt Damon's 'toilet strike' -- VIDEO

Matt Damon’s “toilet strike” for water.org is claiming more and more celebrities in an Oprah-like sweep: Now Bono won’t use the bathroom! And Olivia Wilde! And British mogul Richard Branson! Like Damon, the trio has pledged “not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation.” Damon kickstarted the strike in February; Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, and Josh Gad joined him in March. The movement protests the plight of the 780 million people who lack access to safe drinking water and the 2.5 billion people who go without safe water and sanitation facilities.

'Space Oddity' done right: Astronaut Chris Hadfield sings Bowie's hit in actual Space Station -- VIDEO

In space, no one can hear you sing. Well, unless you record yourself singing there, then post that video on YouTube.

Case in point: Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield‘s incredible, anti-gravity rendition of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” an awesome song made even more awesome by the fact that this dude is actually singing it in space. The commander, who’s currently wrapping up a five-month stay in the International Space Station, uploaded the clip yesterday; it’s already racked up over 1 million views. READ FULL STORY

Funny or Die gives 'Game of Thrones' the sassy gay treatment -- NSFW VIDEO

Everyone is watching Game of Thrones. But are you watching Funny or Die’s recap series “Gay of Thrones”? Because it is fabulous. This week was a react to Sunday’s “The Climb,” here retold to feature mostly DSLs, and little baby Kristen Stewart’s boyfriend. “Gay of Thrones” is very offensive but very spot-on. Hey, Maggie Smith! This season of the HBO show is, like, dense with characters, chaos, and exposition. (It only gets chaos-ier.) The only way to keep track is with a recap that ignores anything that isn’t naked, bleeding, or literally on fire. Go watch it, rightnow.com

Charles Ramsey — the man who is simultaneously famous for eating a Big Mac, rescuing three women from a presumed decade in captivity, and giving television interviews like it was “an evening at the Apollo” — has already been fêted with an Autotuning, multiple talk show spotlights, and (now) an ad for a cable TV special, courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel.

Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey viral interview gets autotune treatment -- VIDEO

In a tough situation — in this case, the incredible rescue last night in Cleveland of Amanda Berry, Georgina “Gina” DeJesus and Michele Knight after a decade in captivity — it’s no wonder people are looking for bright spots. And the Internet has quickly decided that one giant bright spot is local hero and neighbor Charles Ramsey, who heard Berry’s cries for help and busted open a door to help get her out, then called 911. Ramsey’s high-energy (but NSFW) interview with a local news reporter recounting the incident quickly went viral (and continues to be a top trending topic on Twitter). Now — as is inevitable in this meme-tastic age — autotune song versions of the spirited Q&A are cropping up on YouTube.

Check out some of the remixes of the interview below. Gregory Brothers, we’re still waiting for your take. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel drank (a lot!) during his Time 100 toast -- VIDEO

The Time 100 Gala is about celebrating influence, about honoring great achievements in the arts, in business, and in political and civic life. It is also, according to Jimmy Kimmel, about “having dinner with the people who buy ads in their [Time] magazine.” The late-night host said this, and a bunch else, amidst a 4-minute toast during the event. Lena Dunham (“the kid genius”) cheers off-screen. Besam Yousef gets some advice (“move”). Kimmel drinks — and drinks. Most people laugh, kind of. Kimmel’s tablemate Jimmy Fallon thinks the whole thing is hi-larious. It is! The wine looks delicious!

North Dakota anchorman fired for on-air profanity

There are bad first days at a new job and then there are days like the one news anchor A.J. Clemente had at KFYR-TV in Bismarck, N.D. on Sunday. Unaware that his mic was live and he was on-air, Clemente’s first broadcast words were “f—in’ sh–” while he practiced the difficult-to-pronounce name of the winner of the London Marathon. His obviously rattled co-anchor Van Tieu tried to cover, but alas, the poor guy was fired by the station.

“Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go. Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support,” Clemente tweeted yesterday.

Video of the incident spread like wildfire yesterday online, so much so that last night’s top-10 list on The Late Show With David Letterman was “Top 10 Signs Your First Day As A News Anchor Didn’t Go Well.”

For his part, Clemente has maintained a sense of humor about his “rookie mistake” tweeting things like “I’m a free agent. Can’t help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish I didn’t trip over my ‘Freaking Shoes’ out of the gate” and, more recently, “Find #teamAJ a job.”
