IKEA Remakes The Shining's Tricycle Scene To Advertise New Late Night Hours

ikea-the-shining-commercial.jpg

This is a commerical from IKEA Singapore advertising their new late-night (open till 11PM) hours with a remake of the iconic tricycle scene from Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'. What's your favorite scene in the movie? Mine's the one with the naked lady in the bath of room 237. Unfortunately, in just a matter of seconds, that scene also quickly becomes my least favorite. I don't do rotting ghost boobs.

Keep going for the commercial.

Toys R Us Pulls Breaking Bad Action Figures From Shelves After Florida Mom Starts Petition

breaking-bad-action-figures.jpg

Toys R Us has announced it will pull the Walter White and Jesse Pinkman action figures it's stores have been selling after Florida mom Susan Schrivjer started an online petition to have the Breaking Bad figures removed. You know, despite the fact the toys were only sold in the adult action figure section of the store and not alongside Barbie and Transformers. Hey, everybody needs a worthless cause in life. *runs to Twitter to see if anybody's started a 'FloridaMom' satire account yet*

Schrivjer's petition had picked up plenty of media coverage. Even Walter White himself, actor Bryan Cranston, weighed in, tweeting, " 'Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.' I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest."


Using the name Susan Myers on Change.org, Schrivjer had noted the store's "selection of toys for children of all ages." However, she added, "their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

"Kids mimic their action figures, if you will," she told the station. "Do you want your child in an orange jumpsuit?"

It's weird FloridaMom took offense to Breaking Bad but doesn't care that the store sells horror movie action figures (but they'll make me want to kill my friends!) and Grand Theft Auto. I suspect the Breaking Bad figures just hit a little too close to home. "Because of the meth?" I bet she or a close friend had a drug problem at some point. This is Florida we're talking about, after all. Which, FUN FACT: no matter where you travel in Florida, you're never further than 8-feet from a bag of meth.

Thanks to Derek, but not my roommate Derek, because my roommate Derek is fictional and only lives in the pages of Geekologie. I mean, he used to be real, but I killed him.

Chewbacca, Freddy Krueger, Where's Waldo Break Up Fight Between Mr. Incredible And Batgirl

superhero-fight.jpg

This is a local video news report about a fight between Mr. Incredible and Batgirl on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of Grauman's (TCL) Chinese Theater. Chewbacca and Freddy Krueger and Where's Waldo (he's right there!) try to break them up. It's really just sad more than anything.

The video appears to show Mr Incredible and Batgirl struggling, with Chewbacca attempting to break up the tussle. After Batgirl scratches Mr. Incredible, Waldo and Freddy Krueger step in. They try to hold back Mr. Incredible, but he gets loose and chases Batgirl before punching and kicking her, and flipping her on the sidewalk. Bystanders then chase the characters off.


"The good ones, we're stationary, we'll stand against the curb, people come to us," [Batman] said. "But the bad ones they roam up and down, so they cross paths or they target the same people, and then they get into each other. It's less now because we have a lot more police presence here since last year, and it has made a difference. It's not cleaned up yet, but it is getting better."

You know what the real problem with the performers on Hollywood Blvd is? That they're there at all. I'm sure SOME are decent, but if parents actually knew the kind of people under the majority of those costumes they would not be paying $5 to have their kids take a picture with them. Case in point: one time I saw SpongeBob with his costume under his arm getting a BJ from a methy looking Tinkerbell in the parking lot across from Boardner's bar. That's a fact.

Dutch Organic Food 'Experts' Taste Test McDonald's Not Knowing It's McDonald's

organic-mcdonalds.jpg

Note: Turn on the closed-captioning if you don't speak Dutch.

This is a video of Dutch organic food purveyors ("experts" is the video maker's word, not mine) being tricked into trying a McDonald's Big Mac and McNuggets after being told they're actually new unnamed organic burger and nugget products. They love them. Of course, it's kind of unfair they lied and told them they were organic. You probably just gave these health nuts cancer. Besides, I guarantee these people haven't eaten McDonald's in years, it's not like they really remember what it tastes like. Of course they're going to say this tastes better when you ask them how it compares. I guess I'm not really sure what I was supposed to learn from the video. That people think McDonald's is delicious, especially if you tell them it's organic? That's like giving a bite of filet mignon to a vegetarian and convincing them it's a new vegetable. They're going to ask for seconds.

Just In Time For Halloween: Alien Chest Bursting Prank

alien-chestburster-prank.jpg

PROTIP: Check your volume, screaming.

This is a video of magician Rahat Hussein (of the invisible driver drive-thru prank fame) trying to scare people with an alien chestbursting prank. It's decent. Plus you can buy the costume for $30 to do it yourself on Halloween HERE. Although, personally, I don't think I'd be scared. I'd be like the guy at 0:45 who just smiles and keeps walking. I live in a bad part of town, I'm used to people running up to me screaming. Granted I've never witnessed an alien burst out of their chest, but that actually ranks pretty low on the extremity of things I've seen. I once had some crazy guy come running up to me WITH HIS PENIS IN HIS HAND. It was not attached!

Vandals Deflate 80-Ft Inflatable Butt Plug In Paris Square

inflatable-art-paris.jpg

Oh-hoh-hoh -- zat is ze second largest butt plug I have seen!

A group of angry art-critic vandals successfully deflated American artist Paul McCarthy's work "Tree", which had been on display in Paris's Place Vendôme as part of an international contemporary art fair. The piece was inspired by both a butt plug and a Christmas tree. Although, minus the color, it looks almost entirely butt plug to me. And, SURPRISE, some Frenchies weren't cool with that!

"An unidentified group of people cut the cables which were holding the artwork, which caused it to collapse," police told Reuters.


Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said the attack was unacceptable and also denounced an assault on McCarthy the day he installed the work, when a man hit him in the face before running away.

"Paris will not succumb to the threats of those who, by attacking an artist or a work, are attacking artistic freedom," she said in a statement. "Art has its place in our streets and nobody will be able to chase it away."

Wow, for a group that sounds so anal, you'd think they'd be cool with a giant butt plug. Get it? Because that's where butt plugs go -- in the anal. "Anus." Whatever. Also, I can't believe Paul McCartney went from the Beatles to giant inflatable butt plug sculptures. "Paul McCarthy, NOT McCartney." Don't even act like you didn't think that at first too.

Thanks to Ed and E V I L A R E S, who agree we should inflate a string of increasingly larger helium balloons that look like anal beads and call it "Necklace".

Genius: Filling Your Automatic Ice Dispenser With Candy

ice-machine-candy-dispenser.jpg

When it comes to ice or candy, I'll choose candy every time, even if I'm dying of heat stroke. At least I died chewing sugar. This is a portrait-mode video of Youtuber Deric Peace demonstrating how well an automatic ice dispenser works at dispensing candy. SPOILER: it works VERY WELL. Sadly, I don't have the luxury of a refrigerator with an automatic ice dispenser, and filling the ice cube trays in my mini-fridge with candy has only proven to make me deeply, deeply depressed. At least I have candy so I can eat my feelings.
