Today's must-see viral videosJulian Assange's MasterCard parody

1. Wikileaks’ MasterCard commercial

At first I thought this was a parody, but then changed my mind and thought it was real. Then it turned out to be a fake after all. Oh, that Assange!

 

2. The “Party Down” initiative

It seems that today is “Party Down” Day , in an Internet effort to make a movie of the Starz’s comedy happen. (How well has that worked out for “Arrested Development”?) Still, it was an amazing show, and this video roundup of the best lines from Roman (played by Martin Starr) inspires the question… “Are we having fun yet?”

 

3. Dueling comedians

Last night, Conan’s people “accidentally” booked overbooked two comedians. Watch Jon Dore and Rory Scovel perform their bits simultaneously — creating an almost harmonious duet of stand-up shtick.

 

4. Jean-Claude Van Damme really needs to make rent

The action hero is starring in this wacky Russian comedy called “Rzhevskiy vs. Napoleon,” which might end up being his best role to date.

 

5. “Real Housewife of New York” Countesss LuAnn’s new “hit” single,  “Chic C’est la Vie”

It’s so much sing-talking, I never thought I’d yearn for the days of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.
