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.

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.

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    7 ways Americans have defiled the hot dog

    Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun. Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
