'Girls' meets 'Blossom' -- VIDEO

Are Lena Dunham impressions the new Woody Allen impressions? Will everyone have their version in six months?

Whether or not Kerri Doherty is capitalizing on the success of Chelsea Davidson’s Lena Dunham/Zero Dark Thirty parody is somewhat irrelevant. In Doherty’s newest Geeking Out video, she’s stepped it up a notch, combining our ’90s nostalgia with our Girls obsession. Not only has Doherty imagined a conversation between Blossom Russo and Six LeMeure that builds off of the Hannah and Shoshanna moment from Season 1 where they watch the fake reality game show Baggage —  she even got Jenna Von Oy to reprise her role as Six.


'New Girl': Schmidt down, shut up, and watch this 'New Girl' best-of reel -- VIDEO

Cramming all of the instantly, endlessly quotable gems from New Girl‘s Schmidt into a scant 106 seconds couldn’t have been easy, but NowThis News tackled the Herculean task. The results, in a new video below, showcase not only Max Greenfield’s stellar performance (those reaction shots! his face during the Chicken Dance!) but also the writers’ down-to-the-threadcount understanding of Schmidt. Check it out below, just don’t take a sip of water before watching, or you’ll end up like Schmidt at 0:35… READ FULL STORY

'Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer: The LEGO remake

First came the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer. Then came the homemade remake of the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer. Now, because the Internet is a benevolent all-giving entity, YouTuber Antonio Toscano has put together an all-LEGO remake of the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, complete with lots of appropriately shaky close-ups on the face of the Evil Benedict Cumberbatch LEGO man. Watch the fun below: READ FULL STORY

What if the Disney princesses went on a wild spring break? -- NSFW VIDEO

In Spring Breakers Disney starlets shed their good girl images, so CollegeHumor asked the question: What if Disney princesses decided to loose their inhibitions as well? SNL alum Abby Elliott and Greek actress Amber Stevens star in the hilarious parody trailer.

The gang’s exploits include robbing from Cinderella’s “b—h stepmother,” the Genie rocking cornrows and promising everyone ”no worries for the rest of your days, ya’ll,” Ariel using some major double entendre, and Snow White eating an apple that’s well… not poisoned by an evil queen but still able to cause some damage.

Kate Upton calls her would-be prom date, still checking her schedule -- VIDEO

Jake Davidson, the 17-year-old who asked supermodel Kate Upton to his prom, had no problem talking to Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb on Today about his adorable YouTube video. But then, Sports Illustrated‘s two-time swimsuit issue covergirl dialed in, and well, he acted like you or I would.

Watch the exchange below.


Save our spandex! Jimmy Kimmel creates PSA for yoga pants shortage


Yoga sportswear maker Lululemon — as you may have already heard — has been forced to recall hundreds of their basic black yoga pants due to a manufacturing error that made the stretchy, slimming leggings too see-through. Now, Lululemon is experiencing a shortage of the pants, the company’s stock is dropping, and the world of yoga as wealthy, new age-y ladies once knew it is changing forever.

Jimmy Kimmel, patron saint of the yoga pants crisis, has taken it upon himself to create the public service announcement below, which sheds some light on the seriousness of the situation. Without the hundred dollar pants, what will yoga enthusiasts wear? Cardboard? Bubble wrap? Yo … gurt pants?

Check it out, and let us know what you’ll be wearing without the option of designer workout pants.

'Game of Thrones': Which actor's take on the theme song is your favorite? VIDEO

Singing along to the Game of Thrones theme song: It’s not just for Stark kids anymore!

MTV Geek asked 10 members of the fantasy drama’s cast to perform their own rendition of the tune at the show’s season 3 premiere party earlier this week. The actors obliged, albeit with slightly varying levels of enthusiasm. (Minor quibbles: There was no rapping, and nobody sang the song’s true, NSFW lyrics.)

Sophie Turner’s version is probably my favorite, though I could be swayed — whose “na na, na na na na”s do you like best? And which cast member’s out-of-character appearance blows your mind the most? (Carice van Houten, I’m looking at you.)


How YouTube is boldly becoming more like TV

When Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla, a pair of 25-year-olds known as Smosh, posted a silly YouTube video of themselves lip-synching the Pokémon theme song in 2005, they weren’t trying to become Web phenoms. But that’s exactly what happened. The clip went viral, thanks to some incalculable combination of millennial nostalgia and absurdist Internet humor.

Eight years later, Smosh run the most popular channel on YouTube, boasting more than 8.2 million subscribers. The guys also have a Spanish channel, a vlog channel, a cartoon channel, a newly launched gaming channel, and a website/social network (Smosh.com) with exclusive video content and merchandise. They may have started as a one-off viral sensation, but their enduring success — and the success of fellow YouTube pioneers — has helped reshape the site into a vast entertainment entity that produces so much more than Web-based novelty acts.

Smosh, like so many of YouTube’s other top content creators, landed an audience via professionally produced videos, a consistent release schedule, and help from a slew of ahead-of-the-curve thinkers and producers. READ FULL STORY

'A Very Potter Senior Year': Darren Criss & Team StarKid's last Potter parody hits YouTube

In the beginning, God and Darren Criss created Harry Potter: The Musical, a madcap Harry Potter parody originally performed at the University of Michigan in 2009. The musical, cowritten by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden and produced by StarKid Productions, arrived on YouTube that summer and quickly went viral, inspiring a 2010 sequel that helped to launch Criss into mainstream stardom. (Its popularity also inspired a name change meant to stave off the litigious Warner Bros; that’s why you now know the show as A Very Potter Musical.)

Potter‘s Harry soon joined the cast of Glee, and StarKid’s other members moved on to other projects as well. Still, though, the story didn’t seem quite finished — which is why a whole passel of StarKids (including Criss) reunited for a one-night-only performance of a second Potter sequel at Chicago’s LeakyCon convention last summer. Though the gang released the show’s cast recording in December, the full musical itself remained absent from YouTube… until this past Friday.


Viral video song 'After Ever After' tells us what happens next for Disney princesses -- VIDEO

What happens after happily ever after?

It’s a topic that’s been explored many times, but never before in four-part harmony. Jon Cozart — who knows his way around YouTube, having made several super-popular videos before — has another hit on his hands with “After Ever After,” which tells the tales of Disney princesses Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, and Pocahontas after the credits roll. It’s not a pretty picture: Ariel is concerned about the BP oil spill, Jasmine’s boyfriend is a maybe-terrorist, Belle is accused of bestiality, and Pocahontas is now more than a little bloodthirsty for every Englishman.

Currently #2 on the iTunes Comedy Song chart, the tune has garnered nearly 200,000 YouTube views in just two days. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
