Even with Halloween a few days away, stores are already pulling out their Christmas decorations in anticipation of the winter season. That’s right: it feels like summer just ended, but already we’re thinking about finding our snow boots and winter jacket. But fear not, because my bi-monthly video segment is here to alleviate your seasonal blues. Last time we saw just how terrible YouTube’s audio transcription tool is, why bike helmets are a must, why xylaphones are coolest in the woods, and how spectacular it is to watch a deaf woman regain her hearing. But the videos this week are even better. Enjoy.
GIVE A HUG
I’ve never been one to initiate hugs with anyone other than family, which I think is too bad and a loss on my part. A good hug can go a long way, and I wish giving hugs came more easily to me and those like me. For many people, receiving a hug can be a great experience, but for those who rarely receive such an embrace, a hug can be life changing. Give a hug—get closer.
Who hasn’t fantasized about quitting their job in some bombastic and ridiculous fashion? God, I know I have. And so I admire this Joey fella for quitting with style. After all, nothing says, “Go to hell for being such a douche” like a little pomp and circumstance.
I’m a picky eater—always have been and likely always will be. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to watch people eating horrible things. In this episode of Food For Louis, Louis eats a giant, live scorpion. Is this worse than the time he drank 10 blended mice? You know, it just might be.
THE WALKEN DEAD
I’m a big fan of AMC’s hit zombie show, The Walking Dead. From the strong characterizations to the buckets of blood and gristle, The Walking Dead makes for a hell of a good time. But if there’s one sure way to improve the show, adding Christopher Walken just might be it … that or at least adding Christopher Walken quotes. Don’t believe me? Check out this parody video and see for yourself.
Yes, I’m still as immature as ever. But this video is as funny as its subject is stupid. Taking an 18-wheeler tractor trailer tire to the crotch is no laughing matter … well, no, actually, that’s exactly what it is.
