At 6pm tomorrow on SportsCenter, Ron Burgundy and Champ Kind will be stopping by to co-host the entire show.
This is just one of the many genius press stops that these actors have been doing to promote Anchorman 2 and whichever marketing firm decided this would be a good idea deserves a raise.
That said, Peyton Manning seems to be a pretty good sport about it all. Based on his previous hosting of SNL, I think that Peyton Manning is actually pretty funny, especially when it comes to this sketch.
In tragic news from this weekend, 40-year-old actor Paul Walker passed away in a car accident in Santa Clarita, just 30 miles north of Hollywood on Saturday afternoon after a charity event for typhoon relief in the Philippines, held by one of Walker’s charities Reach Out Worldwide.
He leaves behind his 15-year-old daughter.
Walker is most famous for his roles in the Fast and Furious franchise and the irony of his passing from a car crash has not been lost on the world. Authorities say that speed was a factor in the crash, but have not determined whether Walker or the other person in the car, Roger Rodas, was the driver. Autopsy reports and dental records are the only remaining factors that can determine whose body is whose from the wreckage.
Walker’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was reportedly driving along a stretch on Hercules Street, a wide business park road that often attracts speedsters and drag racers. At this time, authorities are looking into whether drag racing played a part in the wreck, though experts so far believe that the markings on the road show that another vehicle may have cut them off. Officials have yet to determine how fast the vehicle was going, but it skidded and slammed into a tree, where it burst into flames.
We wish our condolences to his family and friends. If the only thing you know of Walker’s film career are the Fast and Furious movies, I recommend you check out Running Scared. One of his best movies that truly showed the range he had as an actor.
This is 22-year-old Alicia Ann Lynch. For Halloween this year, Alicia dressed up as a victim from the Boston Marathon bombing. Alicia is a very stupid person for choosing that costume. But the internet is also a very stupid place for sending this girl and her family death threats and rape threats because of her poor decisions.
Alicia quickly learned about the vitriol that can loom behind the internet after she posted the above photo to her Instagram. She also learned the hard way that you shouldn’t post personal information about yourself on social networking sites, especially if that photo is of your driver’s license. Internet vigilantes made quick use of that information and contacted her family and her work, sending threats and sending them nude photos that Alicia had posted of herself on Tumblr. Yes, nude photos on Tumblr. Like I said, Alicia is not what one would call bright. Alicia has since been fired from her job.
Since receiving all these hateful comments, messages, and voicemails from random strangers around the world who think she’s a heinous person for choosing such a costume in poor taste, Alicia has sort of apologized.
It seems as though my outfit was too soon, and will always be that way, it was wrong of me and very distasteful. My costume was not meant to disrespect anyone, ever. I am truly sorry to anyone that I may have offended or hurt with this. I know my apology doesn’t ever fix anything that has been done, but at least know that I am being sincere.
I can’t undo my actions or make up for them, but my apology is a start.
I myself have been through tragic events, I just handle mine differently because that is how I was taught to. I realize I was in the wrong with this and again, I am truly sorry.
I wore a costume to work, with people that know me, and wouldn’t get offended by it. I had even ran the idea by a friend whom had his father in the marathon and he didn’t have an issue with it.
What I did may have been wrong, but is it truly right to wish harm upon someone and say that you’re doing it for the victims? As being a part of a tragic event I never would ever wish what had happened to me upon someone else, as I can say most people wouldn’t wish death upon someone to ‘make it right’.
Of course, sending this girl and fer family death threats seems to be counter-intuitive to making her realize the mistake she’s made. Right now, she’s not focusing on the fact that she’s done something grievously wrong. She’s focusing on trying to understand if these threats are real and protecting herself, which automatically puts her in a defensive position. When you send threats over the internet, it doesn’t work to shame the person, it just makes you seem like an asshole. That’s not the message that should be conveyed at times like this. She’s not focusing on the mistake she made anymore because now she’s become a victim to the internet’s strange version of “justice.”
“I’ve had voicemails where they want to slit my throat and they want to hang me and tear off my face,” she said. “I’m just like, I don’t even know how to respond to this right now.”
The 22-year-old added that strangers also reached out to her parents and told her best friend “they’re going to blow up her house and hang her child.”
“I’m like, how is that even right? She didn’t know what I was doing. My family didn’t know what I was doing. I don’t live with them. And they’re all getting dragged into this for something I did.”
Though Lynch seems able to let most of the threats slide down her back, some in particular affect her — namely, the ones having to do with rape, an experience she tearily described undergoing last Thanksgiving.
“When people bring up the rape stuff it kind of hits a spot, but I don’t show it. I’m over it, but it’s something that I would never, ever wish upon someone no matter what they had done. They can dress however they want.”
Despite the backlash, Lynch said she never second-guessed her marathon costume and said multiple people she brought it up to found the idea funny. She claimed she had seen other people on Twitter dressed as Boston Marathon victims, and blamed the uproar around her costume, rather than around others’, on the fact that she is a woman.
“Honestly, it’s the Day of the Dead,” she says. “I wasn’t a dead person, I wasn’t being disrespectful. I was a survivor of a marathon. And it’s not like I was walking around with a fake leg or my arm torn off or something like that.”
She added that although she lost her job — which she declined to describe — she sees it as a push to do something new, and isn’t concerned about future employers Googling her. Asked if she thinks she’ll be able to secure another job, she replied, “Yeah, I don’t think I’ll have an issue with that.”
“It doesn’t really bother me,” she said about the idea of others searching for her on the internet. “I have nothing to hide. It happened, I made a mistake. I just have to learn from it. I’m not a terrible person.”
Judging by the Twitter responses from those actually in the Boston marathon or who had loved ones affected, yes the costume Alicia wore was offensive and insensitive. But that doesn’t mean the girl deserves the hatred that fueled those bombings as well. I mean, come on, people. You really want to reach someone who’s been an idiot? Tell them you’re disappointed in them and tactfully explain why. If you’re ever heard those words come out of your parents’ mouths, you know that’s the worst kind of judgment you can put on someone.
There’s nothing more frustrating that going in for a fist bump and having someone not understand which fist bump you were going for. So this handy guide will show you all the different kinds of fist bumps there are and give you more ways to bro down with some class.
Nate Clark, who seems to be the real life version of Dennis Reynolds and Jeff Winger mashed together, spotted a car blocking his driveway and decided to have it towed. It seems a reasonable response, considering how late in the evening the car remained in front of the driveway and how much of the car actually blocked the driveway itself.
Unbeknownst to Nate Clark, however, the car belonged to “famous” (I’m using quotations because I don’t understand how someone this grating has two million subscribers) YouTuber Joey Graceffa. If you want to go check out his videos, you can. Though I do not recommend if you like your sanity and your brain cells.
Joey, being famous on the interwebs and all, decided to make a video complaining about the fact that someone had towed his car. HOW DARE THEY, AMIRITE?
Nate Clark then made the above response video and it is glorious. He has perfected the art of the back-handed compliment. If you ever need something bitchy but nice to say at a family or high school reunion, perhaps you should write to Nate Clark and ask him for some advice. Or just find out if he carries around burn creme to rub on his victims after he gets done with them.
Yeah, I don’t care what anyone says. Pacific Rim looks like a damn fun movie. It’s one where you can sit there and be entertained without doing that thing your brain does. You know…thinking. Blech. Who wants to think when you can ogle at robots and Charlie Hunnam?
HA! I only have three of these! YOU DON’T KNOW ME.
Thankfully, pictures of Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch were not included in that list of potential phone photos. How many of these will you admit to?
