Pop quiz, baby enthusiasts! Would you rather:
A) See a baby fail miserably while attempting to play a harmonica?
B) See a lion fail miserably at trying to eat a baby?
If your answer was A, B, or C —classic trick question maneuver, even though I didn’t give you that option, C was naturally “All Of The Above”!— you’re in luck! This week’s hee-haw-larious episode of Gabe & Max Like The Internet contains both of these clips, as well as a few others for good measure. It’s Friday, what could possibly be the harm in wasting a few minutes at work by pressing play on the video above before you go do shots with your friends? (Bonus: The contents of this video will not only make you laugh, but also serve as excellent icebreaker talk for you to use at the bar later. As in, “Hey, did you see the video of that adorable baby foil a lion’s plot to eat him?” Use that line, you’re guaranteed to get digits*.)
Yesterday’s first annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards was quite the star-studded event, one where objects-of-desire like Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks both took home prizes. While all the celebs congregated in one room for the luncheon and awards ceremony, the real action took place backstage, where our own Kate Spencer was holding court with virtually all of the winners. She even got a few minutes to chat with Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey and, being the Twi-hard that she is, she asked him if there was a rivalry beginning to brew between himself and fellow lycanthrope Taylor Lautner. “Do I feel a competition?,” he said with a mischievous glint in his eye. “Not really, no, because I know I would win.” Oh SNAP! Ball’s in your court now, Taylor.
Today, Friday, June 16, 2011, has been a dark day for the Internet. Why? Well, it’s the first Friday since February 11th in which we have not been able to delight in Rebecca Black’s “Friday” on YouTube (thanks to a financial dispute between Black and her record label, Ark Entertainment).
Thankfully, our buddies Gabe Delahaye (Mr. Videogum!) and Max Silvestri (who spent the week on tour with old BWE pal, Aziz Ansari) have stepped up to the challenge to try and breathe some life into the series of tubes that we all recognize as the Information Superhighway. In this week’s episode of Gabe & Max Like The Internet, our fearless leaders guide us through five videos that will make you confess your love for cats, cry like a baby rocketing down the street in a motorized stroller, chase balloons through a trash-strewn room, and then get you so drunk that you can’t even make it down a flight of stairs. Don’t believe us? Watch the video and prove us wrong.
After a two-week hiatus, we are excited to announce that our friends Gabe Delahaye (of Videogum fame) and Max Silvestri (host of Big Terrific, a weekly stand-up show that New York Magazine named the Best Stand-up of 2010) are back with a brand new episode of Gabe & Max Like The Internet, a show that critics have described as “the bastard love child born after a sloppy 4-way between Bob Saget, John Fugelsang, Tom Bergeron and Daisy Fuentes.”¹
This week, your hosts will guide you through a treasure trove of the Internet’s best videos: young boys showering together (really!), old Greek men obsessed with onomatopoeia, canines who possess the uncanny ability to drive motor vehicles, and much, much more. Tell your friends, tell your mom, tell John Fugelsang!
Tom Felton might have just won the Best Villain award at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards for his portrayal of the nefarious Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, but in real life, his personality couldn’t be any sweeter. Our friends over at VH1 News caught up with the burgeoning hunk on the red carpet before last night’s big show and asked him about his old pal from Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory (aka Robert Pattinson). Felton praised his old pal as being “humble” not once but TWICE during our interview with him, and told us how much he was looking forward to catching up with his old chum at such a festive occasion.
Robert Sean Leonard is probably best known in millennial circles for his work as Dr. James Wilson on House, but those of us whose pop culture knowledge runs a bit deeper will recall that he portrayed a vampire in the teen-friendly My Best Friend Is A Vampire. This film was part of Hollywood’s late Eighties vampire frenzy, a period in which actors like Jim Carrey (Once Bitten) and Chris Sarandon (Fright Night) also played these fiendishly handsome creatures of the night.
Well, as we all know, the vampire craze has experienced a resurgence over the last few years, thanks mainly to the work of one Robert Pattinson in the Twilight Saga. So when Robert Sean Leonard stopped by the set of VH1’s new morning show, Big Morning Buzz Live, we asked him if he, as an elder statesman of the Sexy Vampire set, had any advice for R Pattz. Well, he hilariously admitted to us that he “couldn’t tie Robert Pattinson’s shoes — and I mean that literally,” but what really made us laugh was him trying to work out the logistics of how a vampire could kill a werewolf (and vice versa). Watch the video above, you’ll see what we mean!
For the longest time, The Cure instructed us that Fridays were for being in love. Then, Rebecca Black came along and explained that Fridays were actually for “getting down.” Well, since no one wants to have Rebecca Black’s take be the definitive statement for what we, as a society, should do on Fridays, we here at Best Week Ever would like to instead propose that Fridays should be for laffs! Why? Well, mainly because we are excited to present to you the latest episode of the viral video skewering Gabe & Max Like The Internet.
In this week’s episode, Videogum‘s Gabe Delahaye and comedy’s Max Silvestri take on a variety of hot-button topics: Baseball jousting, Beetlejuice impersonators and Italian bus drivers who use two cellphones at once. Take it away, gents!
No, your calendar isn’t wrong, it’s not Friday yet. “But,” as you’re surely asking yourself, “then how come I’m seeing this week’s episode of Gabe & Max Like The Internet today? Is it Opposite Day or something?” Well, dear readers, the answers are simple: No, it’s not Opposite Day, and the simple fact of the matter is that we just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to show you Gabe Delahaye and Max Silvestri’s latest hilarious take on the magical world of internet videos. In this week’s show, the duo discuss their thoughts on flash mobs (specifically, flash mobs at amusement parks involving pregnant ladies), shady record executives with wall safes, why it’s important to employ proper breathing techniques while performing, and much, much more.. Enjoy!
Happy Friday! We’re not exactly sure where you are, but it’s a beautiful day here in New York City. Let’s face it, nobody wants to be in the office on Fridays, but as long as you’re stuck at your desk, we figured we’d help you kill off a few of the minutes before you can get your weekend started with the latest episode of Gabe & Max Like The Internet. This week, Gabe Delahaye and Max Silvestri break down a myriad of topical topics that run the gamut from the Fox anchor who casually announced the death of President Obama (what, you didn’t hear?) to Gloria Allred casually handsexing a baseball bat. Take it away, gents!
Before Jennifer Lawrence gets a chance to show the world what she can do with the plum role of Katniss in The Hunger Games, she’ll be appearing on a big screen near you in X-Men: First Class, opening June 3. Lawrence will embody the role of Mystique, a sultry shape-shifter who, as you’ll recall, was played by Rebecca Romijn in the first X-Men movie.
In this highly-anticipated film, Lawrence will not only have to learn how to deal with the social and physical difficulties that come with being a mutant (not to mention the sexual tension!), but she’s also got to learn the ways of love, too. Her primarily love interest in X-Men: First Class is the character of Philip “Hank” McCoy, played by Nicholas Hoult, who, as you’ll see in the clip above, has got some mutant puberty issues of his own going on. (Pro-tip? Get yourself some fast actin’ Tinactin, bro!)
