Our seemingly excessive coverage of a certain record-breaking film that opened last weekend made some of you suspicious that we were actually undercover ops working overtime to get your ass in a theater seat. While the movie remains High-Larry Clinton, we fear the name itself has jumped the shark. So we’re going to try our best to avoid mentioning it, for sanity’s sake.
Keeping that in mind, who is the man behind the unmentionable character? Most of you know it is Sacha Baron Cohen, Cambridge grad and personality behind Ali G. But what we didn’t realize about him is how intensely private he is. So private, in fact, that a profile of the real man in the upcoming Newsweek clocks in at a measly 650 words. Still, it offers some intriguing information. For example:
- Sasha is a religious Jew who keeps Kosher and observes the Sabbath. (Note to self: Do not stalk/text him Friday evening to Saturday sundown.)
- He rarely to never gives interviews as himself. (Though we did find a couple of clips proving otherwise.)
- He is hot.
- He went to Cambridge.
- But seriously, he’s gorge.
See? That wasn’t so hard. We didn’t mention “The Name That Shouldn’t Be Mentioned” once!
At some point before or after Britney Spears’
carefully designed publicity stunt unexpected drop-in, Will Ferrell appeared on Letterman and, as usual, didn’t forget to bring the funny. Here’s his rendition of a classic number from Phantom of the Opera.

Let’s make it easy: This is simply the best Office mash-up video we’ve ever seen. A music video for Justin Timberlake‘s SexyBack featuring the entire cast of the show, but specifically Steve Carell‘s dance moves. And we don’t even like this song, but it’s growing on us.
Seriously – how great was that? (via Office Tally)
It finally happened. After years and years of watching award shows and anxiously waiting for a gracious loser to uncontrollably freak out when they discover they won’t be taking home the gold, somebody finally snapped. That somebody: Faith Hill. The award show: The CMA’s. The reaction: Amazing. Simply amazing.
(Out of all the YouTube clips online, we went with this one from richsobo. Thank you. The slow-mo close-ups put you in a league of your own.)

Anyone with a brain and access to news media knows that Fallujah isn’t exactly a utopian paradise right now, but there’s still something pretty f*cked up about United States military recruiting officers lying to kids about the current situation in Iraq in order to get them to enlist. For a country that was able to muster so much moral outrage over an off-hand joke by John Kerry (or, as I like to call him, Hasbeen McDoesn’tmatter) about the importance of getting a good education in order to avoid getting shot at by Shiites, you’d think video footage of the milarity blantantly trying to trick kids into joining up might raise an eyebrow or two million. How is it that we’ve gone from brave men and women volunteering to fight for what is right and just, to some undereducated douchebag trying to bait-and-switch teenagers into buying a one-way ticket to Baghdad? It’s depressing that we have to say this, but we have no choice but to name our own Uncle Sam as today’s Daily Douche.
