Matt Damon, Rihanna & Galifianakis: 3 vids for hump day
It’s Wednesday, also known as hump day and here's a fun fact: Wednesday is the day people waste the most time on the internet. Okay, I made that up. But you know when you should be working, you’ll be wasting copious amounts of time on Facebook, your city’s event calendar and YouTube. Here we’ve assembled a little one-stop shopping for time-wasting Wednesday…
Admit it. Sometimes when celebrities take on a cause, although we want to be charitable and understanding, we often roll our eyes because we feel like the celebrity comes off as a bit self-righteous and condescending. Aside from the humor aspect, that is what makes this video so genius. Matt Damon somehow figured out a way to use his celebrity status to further a cause he’s passionate about without coming off as holier-than-thou (and he gets a little help from his friends — check out the celebrity cameos!). We love the reporter whose question is “Whaaaaaaaa?” and when Damon closes out with “Reporters are d*cks. No, I mean other reporters.” Good, clean fun. Speaking of which, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to donate $25 to water.org.
We’re going to take a brief departure from the humorous to check out Rihanna’s latest celebration of her nudity. (We get it RiRi, you look amazing in the buff). We have just a couple of questions. What does Rihanna mean by the lyrics, “Oh the reason I hold on, oh 'cause I need this hole gone, funny you’re the broken one, but I’m the one who needed saving?" Is she filling a void left by the broken Chris Brown? Very cryptic indeed. Our other question is why is Mikky Ekko fully clothed in this video? He seems a bit overdressed for his performance. Just sayin’.
Even though we had to add Zach’s impossible last name to our Word dictionary, it’s possible he's becoming the most skilled comedian of our time. To substantiate this opinion, I offer up Zach’s “Between Two Ferns,” where he interviews Oscar-nominated actors. He butchers their last names, has them escorted off the stage, books the wrong celebrities and pisses off Bradley Copper to the point that he has an on-camera Stage 5 meltdown. Since you’re wasting time anyway, watch this one a couple times. It’s worth it. (Note: Video contains adult language. Oh, and political incorrectness.)
