Hey there kids. Brian Gallagher here with this week's look at all the news that wasn't exactly fit for prints. We have a lot to get through this week, so lets start off with more hilarity involving my favorite comedy on TV, Community:
Not only is NBC's Community one of the funniest shows on TV, but all of the main cast members and creator Dan Harmon are active on Twitter, which makes the show even cooler, in my opinion. A few days ago, one of the show's stars, Gillian Jacobs, who plays Britta on the show, tweeted this photo from an actual Craig's List ad about a student seeking members for a real-life study group like the one on Community. Click on this ad below to see a bigger version.
Donald Glover retweeted Gillian Jacobs' original tweet, even stating that, "I might join." I love that the ad's creator is rather insistent that someone must actually have Starburns to be his group's Starburns... which leads me to wonder how many people out there actually did get starburns after Community premiered. Send me photos if you are an actual Starburns person, or if you know one, and I'll put them in next week's column. I'm kind of scared already...
I am a big fan of the 2009 comedy I Love You, Man, and a big part of that movie was the love that Paul Rudd's Peter Klaven and Jason Segel's Sidney Fife had for the rock band Rush. Both Paul Rudd and Jason Segel teamed up with Funny Or Die for a hilarious five-minute "sequel" of sorts to the movie, where they actually get to meet Rush after a concert. Check out this new video below.
I think it's great that both Paul Rudd and Jason Segel came back to revisit these characters. Since the video already has close to 400,000 views already, it's safe to say that people to want an actual sequel, yes?
What if Filmmakers Directed The Super Bowl - via Slate
Super Bowl XLV is the big event of the night (along with all of the new commercials), but have you ever wondered what the game would look like if it was directed by artful filmmakers? Me neither, but the folks over at Slate have put together an intriguing compilation of past Super Bowls edited to the styles of directors such as Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, Wes Anderson, Jean-Luc Godard, and Werner Herzog. Take a look at this bizarre video below.
As funny as that was, how is Michael Bay not included in this video? I was hoping to see Brett Favre explode after being sacked, or something like that... Regardless, a tip of the hat goes to Andrew Bouve, who wrote, produced and edited that video. Nice work, sir!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 will bring the Hogwarts movie franchise to a close on July 15 and the folks at College Humor have taken a funny look at one of the smaller aspects of the series. Take a look at this new video below, which shows how the Hogwarts Sorting Hat might be applied to an actual high school.
It's funny because it's true...
I know there are still many of you out there who are still salty that Arrested Development was canceled, or that a movie version isn't coming together quite yet. If you're a hardcore fan of the show, then I"m sure you will appreciate this board game which takes elements of Arrested Development and plugs them into the Clue game format. If you have a decent color printer, you could probably actually print this board game photo and the playing cards out and play yourself. Take a look below.
On a semi-unrelated note, to those who haven't seen the 1985 movie Clue, you're really missing out. It's a comedy classic that I feel is far too underrated, so watch it, if you haven't. Anyway, I don't know how many people actually play board games anymore, but fans of the Bluth clan will surely get a kick out of this.
Well, that's about all I have for this week's edition of The Sunday Funnies.
