But it's not just Nets fans who have beef with commissioner David Stern, and he hasn't exactly been graceful when dealing with the press, either. View »

Dora the Explorer Gets a Badass Makeover With the Help of Modern Family's Ariel Winter

Most of us know Dora the Explorer as the bilingual Nick Jr. children's cartoon that's slowly infecting our nation's youth with bleeding heart liberalism and tolerance, but did you know that Dora is also a badass action hero with a hot, shirtless (and, in this case, grownup) sidekick named Diego? Well, she is - Dora has gone live-action and she's here to fuck shit up. View »

This Amazing Gotye Parody Longs For ‘The Star Wars That I Used to Know'

This is pure brilliance. Eddie King and Tyler Marshall from Teddie Films have made this spectacular parody of the song and its companion video, and it's just… man.

Stop whatever you're doing right now and watch this. At the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, KMel Robotics - who previously worked on the James Bond theme à la quadrotors - and Marshmallow Laser Feast unveiled this live performance of whirring robots performing a dazzling light show. Words cannot describe how rad this is - it's like War of the Worlds meets Space Invaders meets laser planetarium Vangelis meets a fire-and-brimstone tent revival sponsored by Skynet. Flabbergastingly fantastic. View »

Drew Brees Drove A Cab Around New York To Teach People About Concussions

Is this a commercial for Dick's Sporting Goods? Yeah, pretty much. But is it Drew Brees driving people* around New York City while ticking off random facts about concussion education and prevention? You bet your ass it is, unless green-screen technology has gotten a lot better recently. The really fun part is where he takes his eyes off the road to make direct eye contact with the people in the backseat, maybe not the smartest move for a guy currently without a lucrative longterm contract. But if it educates people about the debilitating effects of traumatic brain injuries, it's all good in our book. View »
