First of all, a big congrats to my fellow grads of The U. At this point, every student I knew when I was at Miami has now also graduated. And that's terrifying. Mostly for me, because mid-20s crisis and all that. But something magical came out of the 2013 graduation ceremony: a video simply titled "Where's Sebastian?"
Sebastian, for the uninitiated, is the mascot of the University of Miami. He's supposed to be at graduation, but he's too busy hooping it up on the court. So university prez Donna Shalala hits the hardwood to lure him back. She's joined by men's and women's basketball coaches Jim Larranaga and Katie Meier. The video quality looks like something out of the 80s, the acting is pedestrian at best, and the end result is awesome. Watch and enjoy.

If there's one thing Jimmy Fallon is really good at, it's lip syncing to things (or putting on shows with children's instruments). The former is on full display here, as Fallon battles John Krasinski on Late Night. Who wins? Well, you'll just have to watch to find out for yourself!

After going missing more than 10 years ago, missing Cleveland women Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus were finally found, alive. Charles Ramsey helped in the rescue, hearing Berry calling to him from a house. He and Angel Cordero broke down the door and aided her in escaping. The subsequent interview with Ramsey is the stuff of legend.

The Lonely Island are back (which makes me a happy boy), and this time they've tackled a hot button issue--the idea of legalizing same-sex marriage. With "Spring Break Anthem," the trio juxtaposes all these ridiculous things spring breakers do that get glorified, while things like honoring and caring for a partner are frowned upon. It's not really laugh out loud funny, but very cleverly done, and sure to get people talking. Even better, it's nestled inside a "Between Two Ferns" episode with Zach Galifianakis, and the video features James Franco and Edward Norton. Check it out NOW!

This is just about the greatest thing ever. If there's one thing I love, it's corny puns. And if it involves talking chips? Even better! Adam Patch took a joke his wife told him after downing a bottle of wine and animated said joke. Fantastic.
