The website Kickstarter has helped people from all over the world fund raise for their passion projects, and now international supermodel Bar Refaeli is getting in on the action. And we do mean “action.” This year’s #1 woman on Maxim’s Hot 100 List is apparently aching to make a sex tape, and through the magic of the Internet and the kindness of strangers, she’s determined to make that dream a reality. Just check out the video above!
OK, so the whole thing is actually joke video posted by the folks at Funny Or Die. But it is pretty priceless. And elaborate! They even set up a fake Kickstarter page for the project, which seems to be pretty successful so far: Bar has raised to over $159 million fake dollars. Nice job, everyone! As if the though the promise of a supermodel sex tape isn’t enough to get you to dip into your pocket, there are some pretty nifty perks if you donate. According to the site, $200 gets you a backstage pass to the set where Bar plans to have sex. “If you have time, obviously,” it says. And if you pony up $1,000, you get something extra special. “I’d put you in the running to be the lucky guy. Or girl.” Interesting…Check out the hilarious video above! It’s so funny that it almost makes up for the fact that it’s fake.
A more cynical writer (or less indulgent reader) might say this marks the moment that 50 Shades of Grey — or, more accurately, making fun of Fifty Shades of Grey — jumped the shark. Selena Gomez and Nick Kroll have made a Funny or Die video in which the teen queen fantasizes about her gross house painter as a result of reading a little too much E.L. James. But I’m not going to say that, because I have laughed at EVERY SINGLE ONE of these, and I’m showing no signs of tiring of the topic. Comedians of the world, you may still keep these parodies coming, for our appetite is as insatiable as Anastasia Steele’s. What I do fear is that by the time they get around to actually making the real movie, we won’t be able to take it seriously in the least. If we ever would have, that is. (OK, if Ian Somerhalder plays Christian, I promise to take it seriously.) Here five other readings/parodies to enjoy … until the next one comes along. None of these are SFW, btw.
1. Fifty Shades of Grey, the animated trailer. If you’ve read the book, I have two words of warning for you: blue string. If you haven’t, just prepare for some CGI gross. Read more…
Courtney Stodden‘s Funny Or Die video is funny, right? It’s also really weird and uncomfortable and off-putting, correct? In the video which premiered today, Courtney and husband Doug Hutchison riff on their reputation as the world’s most inappropriate couple with Jason Alexander‘s talk show host Danny Clay. If only it had stopped there. Or before it started. Call us old-fashioned, but we personally do not want to watch any Seinfeld star act like a total pervert toward a teenage girl. Jason made a great creep in Pretty Woman, but we’re past that nowm as a culture. Some other bizarre elements of the video we’d like you to consider include:
Jason Alexander’s toupee.
Jason Alexander ogling Courtney’s bikini-clad chesticles with a phone for some reason.
Jason Alexander’s toupee.
The fact that Courtney is only 17-years old (Note: not necessarily specific to this video).
Doug’s expressionless face being smacked over and over again.
The fact that Courtney and Doug somehow seem like the most normal elements of this sketch.
Jason. Alexander’s. Toupee.
That being said, we did love Doug’s claim that they made out at his Uncle Stevie’s funeral. Haha, those two would! They really would! Maybe if Courtney and Doug had just made some more, increasingly inappropriate romantic claims, this video wouldn’t have turned out so cringe-worthy. Claims like, “We’re so in love, we eat each other’s fingernail clippings!,” because, according to them, they are. And as far as we know…they do.
