Fifty-eight lines of dramatic Shakespearean text, delivered in 24 famous celebrity voices, expertly imitated in four minutes of YouTube footage by one side-splitting, hyper-observant celebrity impersonator. You could take the time to crunch the numbers, but we’d recommend that you just hit “Play” and be amazed instead.

Tom Hanks didn’t start The Onion‘s campaign to win a Pulitzer Prize, but the grassroots movement has really taken off since the Oscar-winner chastised the Pulitzer committee for making him angry. Today, author Neil Gaiman is the latest to join Hanks, Ricky Gervais, Pulitzer-winning writer Dave Barry, Paul Reiser, a cat, and an army of advocates at Americans for Fairness in Awarding Journalism Prizes. “We here at AFAJP (pronounced Affahjjp) are dedicating our lives to exposing the Pulitzer committee’s despicable bigotry against the Onion and making sure that America’s finest news source receives the prize it so richly deserves,” said the organization’s president Stephen Forbeck, in a video. “Americans from all walks of life are standing up and telling the Pulitzer committee to stop the ignorance, stop the bias, and stop the neglect.” Watch some of the latest video pleas after the jump: READ FULL STORY
When 30 Rock‘s Katrina Bowden was named Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive in an Internet poll recently, I admittedly attributed some of her success to a well-organized grass-roots campaign. Certainly the 22-year-old is gorgeous and talented, but her crowning didn’t necessary mesh with who I imagined were Esquire‘s core demo. But kudos to Esquire for being ahead of the curve. Bowden’s new video clip on CollegeHumor is sure to win her even more fans from the PopWatch crowd. She loves Firefly!!! She makes Sheldon Cooper seem like a wannabe. She. Is. Our Queen Bee. Bow down and worship. READ FULL STORY
It was Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne himself who said in 2005′s Batman Begins, “Well, a guy who dresses up like a bat clearly has issues.” Christopher Nolan’s two superhero films seem satisfied with a superficial glimpse of the mental stability of its hero, but a clever new faux trailer for The Batman Complex ventures deep into the brain of the man who thinks he’s the Caped Crusader, with the help of Nolan’s other blockbuster, Inception, Bale’s previous work on films like The Machinist, and several other mind-altering movies.
Is it wrong to think that this pretend plot is less confusing than the actual one in Inception? This time around, when Leonardo DiCaprio’s dream-thief says, “I’ve done it before,” he’s referring to the seed he planted in Michael Keaton’s brain back in 1989. And when he warns, “His subconscious is militarized,” he’s dealing with extremely deadly characters: Joker, Two-Face, and an oil-spewing Batman. Take a look below at the first (fake) collaboration between Christian and Leo. READ FULL STORY
After reports of air traffic controllers falling asleep on the job, it shouldn’t come as much a surprise to hear that another member of that illustrious trade was caught slacking off. This Sunday, an air traffic controller near Cleveland, Ohio was found out to be watching a movie after he accidentally broadcast three minutes of Cleaner, starring Samuel L. Jackson, to every plane in the airspace he was supposed to be monitoring.
Now, the fact that he was kicking back and watching a DVD isn’t what raised my eyebrows. I just can’t get over the idea that this movie about Jackson cleaning up after crime scenes — which has a 17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — is apparently so entertaining this guy couldn’t be bothered to make sure airplanes weren’t about to fly into each other.
But criticism aside, it brings up an interesting question: How often do YOU watch movies or TV shows at work? And what kind of shows gel best with the workplace environment? READ FULL STORY
Kids say the darndest things. Maybe your grumpy ol’ ears didn’t embrace the “Friday” phenomenon, but you’re not a tween. Actually, it turns out tweens pretty much despised Rebecca Black’s homemade video, too. At least they say they do. In an online series titled, “Kids React to Viral Videos,” a handful of youngsters were forced to watch the “Friday” video (below). Not Clockwork Orange style, but it sort of felt that way.
