  • As you probably know by now, “Fifty Shades of Grey” opens in theaters this Valentine’s weekend. And with all the buzz leading up to what is most likely going to be a box-office hit, it’s no surprise that someone had a bit of fun with the seductive film’s trailer. Boo Ya Pictures, known for its funny sketches, released a parody trailer on its YouTube channel, featuring Steve Buscemi as Christian Grey.
     
    If you’re wondering how the comedy filmmaking group got Buscemi to agree to this stunt — it didn’t. Boo Ya Pictures used its editing skills to splice in some of Buscemi’s characters from movies and television shows over the years. You may recognize scenes from “Fargo,” “Mr. Deeds,” “The Wedding Singer,” and “Boardwalk Empire,” to name a few.    
     
    The video has amassed more than 1.4 million views on YouTube so far. Some commenters have even said that they would rather see this version of the movie than the one featuring actor Jamie Dornan. This version of the movie trailer is about as sexy

  • Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and here to get you in the spirit is cover artist Anthony Vincent. In a new video, the singer takes 20 different love songs and sings them in 20 different styles.

    Vincent is known for his YouTube channel, “Ten Second Songs,” and for taking different artists’ styles and adapting them to different songs.

    His latest video features everything from a Queen cover of Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” to a Frank Sinatra-style cover of Tupac’s “Can U Get Away.”

    This Valentine’s Day love medley is a follow-up to his 20-different-styles takes of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

    If Vincent sticks to the holiday theme, we can’t wait to see what he does for Easter. … Hopefully he performs in a bunny costume.

  • Bored while delayed at the airport? Take a page from the book of a group of college students and dance it out.  The University of Oregon Acrobatics & Tumbling Team was stuck at the San Francisco International Airport for 13 hours following a meet at Azusa Pacific University. To combat their boredom, team members Erika Schaefer, Brooke Gansemer, Jalen Kirkland, and Nicole Seybold perfectly performed a choreographed routine set to Beyoncé’s hit “Flawless” right on a moving walkway.
     
    Kirkland posted the video to her Tumblr page, and it has received more than 300,000 notes — that’s Tumblr talk for getting a whole lot of attention.
     
    She told Yahoo News, “After being told that the plane wasn’t quite ready to take off, the team (and everyone else on the plane) got off the plane and headed back into the airport. After 13 hours in the airport, we decided to have some fun, and that’s how that video was made. We knew there were a few bystanders videoing us all around the airport, but we had NO

  • The Holderness family is back with a new video, and this time they aren’t celebrating Thanksgiving or running around in their Christmas jammies. This time, parents Penn and Kim Holderness are turning Internet hate into love.

    In a new parody video aptly named “Comments of Love,” the pair replaced the lyrics to “Seasons of Love” with actual YouTube and Facebook comments they’ve received, including "These people are so white, you can almost see through them," and “America stop encouraging this yuppie family”.

    “What do you do when people make mean comments? You sing them!” the family wrote on YouTube.

    YouTube users have been overwhelmingly positive in the comments section and are happy to see the family shaking off the hate.

    MiaWheatley writes, “This is so hilarious, way to not let the haters win, love it.”

    Kristi West comments, “Happiness is contagious! Way to turn the negatives into positives. It is what the world needs more of!”

  • On Saturday, the Pet’s Haven Animal Shelter near Melbourne posted a Facebook photo of a cute pup named Raffa and his newly adoptive dad, Ben Henderson. It was meant to bring attention the shelter’s open-adoption day, but Facebookers just couldn’t help but fall in love with Ben. The photo quickly took on a new life. There were thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from people asking where they could adopt Ben. One person added, “I'll adopt him…and the dog too.”
     
    And then, of course, a meme was born:

    The unexpected exposure might be behind the fact that 30 animals were adopted over the weekend from Pet’s Haven. And just to clear up any confusion on whether or not Ben is adoptable …  his fiancée, Alisha Howell, added a comment to the original post with a photo of her ring, along with the warning, “Sorry ladies he put a ring on it. Haha”
     
    What about Raffa? Well, Ben filled his fans in, writing, “The most important thing is the little guy is settling in nicely. Lucky I was working in
