Watch this: SNL spoofs Google Glass [Video]

Google Glass SNL skit

With this past weekends Saturday Night Live spoof, Google Glass has officially gone mainstream. As part of Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen plays Tech Correspondent Randall Meeks, and tries to explain just how revolutionary Glass can be, all while trying to work within the constraints of poor speech recognition and awkward gestures. Yes, it's a spoof, and therefore, it is very exaggerated--but that's what makes it funny. We've embedded the Hulu clip below, after the break, for your enjoyment.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue has bared her famous bum for a spoof advert. The 44-year-old singer appears in the joke video for body insurance by British artist Katerina Jebb, which sees the Australian star walking up a flight of stairs in slow motion wearing a racy, white backless gown which exposes her pert behind.

"Are your assets fully covered? Protect and cover the things that are most dear to you. Don't wait until tomorrow. Beautiful Body Of London," the voiceover asks. A logo for fake company Beautiful Body Insurance is seen flashing on screen at the same time.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Drama, Music, HBO, Video,

As if one's love for The Wire couldn't be any greater, Funny or Die -- a comedy site founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay -- went and created this.

Sonja Sohn, Andre Royo, Larry Gillard Jr., Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, and Michael Kenneth Williams reprise their roles from the critically-acclaimed HBO series in this hilarious trailer for the imaginary musical. The trailer recreates a few of the show's most famous scenes -- with a lot more singing, dancing, and smiling.

I dare you not to get "Chess is a Metaphor for Drugs" stuck in your head this week.

VIDEO: Charlie Sheen Spoofs Himself

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Television, Meltdowns, Videos,

(WARNING: Explicit, uncensored language)

Charlie Sheen is recovering quickly from his terrible performance in Detroit in the best possible way: with humor. The actor has released a 7-minute spoof his 20/20 interview, and you can see the whole thing above.

We’ve watched it, and we think this version is better than the original -- which aired last month on ABC. Sheen seems unafraid to laugh at himself in the segment, sporting different T-shirts, over-using his catchphrases, even chain-smoking.

The video should do wonders for his comedy tour, which is going strong despite the Motor City flub.

Onion SportsDome: Comedy Central’s Promising Premiere

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Cable, Video,


Tuesday was a big night for Comedy Central.

The evening marked the return of popular series Tosh.0, which became a solid lead-in for the channel’s side-splitting new series Onion SportsDome. And if you missed the premiere, it’s time to go on a TiVo hunting mission right now … because this is probably the best show of the season.

Brought to you by The Onion, the SportsDome is part parody, part satire and hysterical through-and-through. With segments like “Who Would You Kill,” Onion SportsDome shows us what all sports shows should look like. Hosts Alex Reiser and Mark Sheppard (played by Matt Walton and Matt Oberg) offer gut-busting deadpan delivery to lead the series.

The show’s total irreverence for all things sports makes it engaging and absolutely unique. We’re already hungry for more, but unfortunately the Dome won’t be back with a new episode until next week.
