Bone Thugs-n-Harmony Meets Sesame Street


Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are one of the most influential rap groups in history, and Sesame Street helped pioneer a whole new era of children's shows. Naturally, the two must be combined. From creator isthishowyougoviral:

The cast of Sesame Street performs the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony classic, “Tha Crossroads”. Starring Grover as Bizzy Bone, Elmo as Layzie Bone, Cookie Monster as Krayzie Bone, and Telly as Wish Bone. This was, by far, the toughest song choice out of all the mashups I’ve ever created, but it’s one of the best rap songs ever, so it had to be done. Video by Mylo the Cat aka Adam Schleichkorn. 

The end result is magical. Enjoy!

March Madness Press Conference Questions You Will Never Hear


This year's Final Four is set – we've got two teams who have never made it, one who hasn't been there since 1939, and...North Carolina. Hey, you have to have one stalwart in there, right?

In any case, Funny or Die has a delightful parody of the postgame press conferences that follow each matchup. It starts out harmlessly enough, though after a bit, the reporters gathered start asking some more peculiar questions. Enjoy!

Florida's Chris Chiozza Hits Crazy Buzzer Beater Against Wisconsin to Advance to Elite 8


After some thrilling games on Thursday night, Friday's Sweet 16 games were fairly boring in comparison. UCLA/Kentucky didn't really live up to the hype (which is not too big of a surprise since those games rarely do), so we were left with Florida/Wisconsin as the final game of the evening and one last chance to give us some madness. And boy, did it deliver.

Wisconsin was down eight in the closing minutes and they tied the game on a crazy shot with 2.5 seconds left in regulation. Then, in overtime, Florida found themselves trailing by five with under a minute remaining.  They tied the game up at 81, then the Badgers scored on two Nigel Hayes free throws to get back ahead. NO MATTER.

Florida's Chris Chiozza raced the length of the court and hit a three, much in the same style as Wisconsin's end of regulation shot was thrown up. Just like that, we've got our first buzzer beater of the NCAA Tournament. WILD.

BBC Mom Spoofs the Now Famous BBC Interview


If you've been near the Internet at all over the past couple of weeks, you've seen the now famous BBC interview where a man's children walk in on him as he's chatting with a news anchor over Skype. It's quite delightful and a good reminder that we're all human and life is pretty funny sometimes.

Jono and Ben have taken the comedy one step further with their version of things, the "BBC Mom." She handles her children walking in, and also does some baking, ironing, and even defuses a bomb. Not too shabby!

Weird Al Yankovic - Medium Rarities


"Weird Al" Yankovic dropped a video the other day announcing Medium Rarities, a 23-track collection of rare, unreleased, and other non-album tracks from 1978 to 2017 (40 years! Holy moly!). The video, created by TruScribe, is an homage to the traditional Mario games on Nintendo, only we've got a virtual Yankovic wandering around and collecting items from the course of his career.

Medium Rarities is a part of the 15-album box set, Squeeze Box: The Collected Works of "Weird Al" Yankovic, which will be released on November 24. Check out more about these packages here. Enjoy, and as Weird Al himself would say, "dare to be stupid."
