By now, of course you’ve heard Norwegian duo Ylvis’ worldwide viral smash “The Fox” (WA PAOW POW POW POW PA POW! GERING DING DING DING DA DING!) and no doubt seen the videos Teens React to “The Fox” and The Elderly React to “The Fox“ But as adorable as Ylvis is (and make no mistake, brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker are TOTES ADORBS) you’ve probably been hoping that some lower-tiered boyband would lip dub it for you. Wait now more. Here’s the boys of Emblem3, (mostly shirtless, of course) covering the song, and they’re as BRILLIANT as you knew they would be. Just… please let’s not make this a thing. Are you listening Union J and 5 Seconds of Summer? “Fox” fatigue is already setting in.

Patrice Wilson, the man who unleashed Rebecca Black onto the world, and who specializes in auto-tuning wealthy tween girls and “writing” them “songs” to “sing” – has a new “hit” on his hands with Alison Gold’s “I Like Chinese Food.” The chorus – as idiotic and vaguely offensive as it is – has been stuck in my head for the last 24 hours. “I love Chinese food! You know that’s it’s true! I love fried rice, I love noodles, I love chow mein chow m-m-m-mein.” And the video! OMG! You need to watch it. Twelve-year-old Alison is grumpy (grumpy) after “balling” and “clubbing” (!!) so she hits up a Chinese restaurant where she lists the menu options, then frolics with a guy in a panda suit, who turns out to be Patrice. Patrice then joins the girls for pillow fight at Alison’s slumber party. SO DISTURBING. And yet, SO GENIUS.
You know the viral video du jour ”Drake Hands”? With the supercreepy guy who sent the video to the girl he just met at Starbucks? If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it here. Then watch Arrow star Colton Hayne’s adorable take on it “McDonalds Drake Hands,” left. Just when you think you couldn’t love him any more… (via Twitter/ColtonLHaynes)
AJ Clemente, the cutie-patootie young anchorman who dropped an f-bomb his first day on the air and became a viral sensation, is now bartending at the Table and Taproom in Dewey Beach, Delaware, for $2.23 an hour plus tips. He tells RumorFix, “This is what I’m doing for now. I definitely need to make money for bills.” And there ain’t no shame in that, baby. Although he says he’s been offered a few reality shows, he’s turned them down, saying he’s going to stay around Dewey Beach for the summer and work as a bartender. After which he plans to start applying for TV news jobs all over again in the fall. That’s the spirit! Watch out, world!
Oh, Lord Jesus it’s a video! Everyone’s favorite barbecue-smellin’, Cold Pop-lovin’, no shoes-wearin’ viral video star Sweet Brown recreates the night of that FAAAAAHR in her new song “Cold Poppin.” You’ve got time for it.
On the one hand, the video of the homophobic rapper WHICH YOU DIDN’T WATCH ON TUESDAY SO I’M POSTING IT AGAIN, is much worse because she seems like a seething cauldron of rage, like she just might cut a queen if she sees one on the street, whereas the hot-but-racist college doofus seems totally chill and almost sweetly benign. Which is probably the worst kind of racism. The casual kind. But with the angry rapper girl, you also get the feeling that maybe someday she’ll go to college and have an awkward affair with her militant lesbian dorm mate, and come to regret this video. The hot college doofus, though, is probably doomed to go through life being a bigoted lunkhead. So which is worse?
Three incredibly groovy scuba divers emerge from the ocean, take off their suits, and reveal they are actually a trio of gun-toting drag queens dressed in ’40s drag. You’re just going to have to trust me on this one. Watch it. It’s one of the nuttiest things you’ll see all day. (via Billy Beyond, who said “No idea. But we gotta get over to Italy right away.”)
