Chris Farley, pickup artist - VIDEO

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 17th 2008 7:02PM
Chris FarleyIn this video filmed for a Tom Arnold comedy special, Chris Farley tries to pick up women at a mall. It's classic Farley, with pratfalls and generally making an ass of himself. I'm surprised he had such problems picking up women.

The surprising thing to me was that this was filmed when Tom and Roseanne were still an item, so the marriage isn't yet revealed to be the sham it was. Buying Rosie a present? Puh-lease.

Farley also played Tom Arnold's brother on one of his Roseanne-sponsored short-lived TV sitcoms called Tom. This was a sitcom-within-a-sitcom. Arnold played a loony sitcom star. Obviously it was a beneficial relationship on both sides.

Mind Control with Derren Brown -- An early look

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 25th 2007 4:01PM

derren brownThere are a lot of so-called "psychics" and "mediums" on television, but very few of them admit they're full of crap.

That's why I like Derren Brown. Using a mix of psychology and manipulation, he gets ordinary folks to do things they wouldn't normally do. Brown does not claim to be psychic, or to possess supernatural abilities, he simply has a knack for getting inside a person's head.

He's already made a name for himself in his native U.K., performing such stunts as playing Russian roulette on live television and convincing one person they had been transported into a zombie video game.

Here's the best episode of How I Met Your Mother - VIDEO

how i met your mother; slap bet; himymIf you don't watch How I Met Your Mother but are curious about why we all love it so damn much, I suggest you watch the "Slap Bet" episode. It was the one that got me hooked. And, as Joel said, it was "one of the funniest half-hours of comedy on TV in 2006". The entire episode is on the HIMYM official MySpace page and it's also embedded after the jump inside this post.

Why is it so funny? Hmmm. Let me count the ways. Uh... only because there's face-slapping. And Robin Sparkles. Those two elements alone make it legen...wait for it...dary!

Seth Green loves Nerf balls - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 28th 2007 11:35AM

Seth GreenLong before he was turning into a werewolf on Buffy or creating puppets on Robot Chicken, Seth Green had a really bad haircut.

After the jump is a video of a 1992 commercial for a Nerf slingshot. It features Green and another kid going around a mall, trying to pick up chicks. They decide to use their Nerf slingshots to shoot the girls in the face, which I guess was the most effective flirting technique back in the day. In the process, they also kill a mime.

Judging from the hair and the clothing, the video looks like it's from the 80s, but it's not. The youngest I've ever seen Green was in a mid-80s episode of Spenser: For Hire. He had normal hair then.

How I Met Your Mother: Slap Bet

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 20th 2006 9:45PM
How I Met Your Mother(S02E09) Holy living crap, was that a funny episode or what? I laughed hard during most of it, something that I only seem to do during The Office, Scrubs, and early Simpsons episodes. God, it was all so good: The slap bet, and the resulting payments on both sides; Marshall and Lilly enthusiastically telling each other about every mundane detail of their days; Barney's "Ohh..." moments; Robin's elaborate (and classy!) lies about her nonexistent Canadian marriage; the flashback to thirty seconds before the first slap...

... But the best part of the entire episode came at the end, when Robin revealed her dirty little secret, one that she didn't want anyone to know, including her beloved boyfriend Ted...

CBS wants to see a Genius pilot

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 29th 2006 11:05AM
cbs logoCBS wants to see what happens when the cool kids at Abercrombie & Fitch mingle with the computer geeks at the Apple Store Genius Bar. The show is called Genius Bar and all four major networks thought it was pretty great. After a bidding war, the idea landed at CBS. Genius Bar is being created by Josh Sternin and Jeff Ventimilia, two producers of That '70s Show.

It's interesting- the idea for the show actually came from a marketing guru named Krishnan Menon, whose company is responsible for major marketing campaigns for the iPod and iMac.

Tom Goes to the Mayor: My Big Cups

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 5th 2006 12:52PM

tom goes to the mayor(S02E01) To celebrate thirty years of Jefferton, the Mayor has decided to hold a contest to see who can come up with the best painting to represent the city. After a slightly modified opening sequence where the Mayor announces the contest, we cut to a scene in his office where he rejects contestant after contestant by knocking their paintings out of their hands with a stick. Like clockwork, Tom Peters shows up with a great new idea that's going to inevitably end up in disaster. This time, Tom has invented something called Big Cups, large receptacles that hold almost two liters (1.8 to be exact). Tom, not one to always think his ideas through completely, doesn't enlarge the cups to house an entire two liter bottle of soda, but instead offers a smaller disposable cup and a plastic bag with which to dispose of the extra soda. Tom Goes to the Mayor is full of subtle gems like that, where even the most absurd moments aren't given much more than a passing glance. A lot of these moments center on the Mayor himself, who always greets Tom in person as if he's answering his phone: "Hello, Mayor's office!" There's also the "one-man band" toward the end of this episode, which is really just a man with a CD player taped to his chest. Also, instead of walking behind the podium to give his speech, two people actually drag the podium in front of Tom. It's hilarious because it's complete unnecessary.
