Oh look, another funny video by Pete Holmes. At this rate, his late night show may just last. Here he poses as Men's Wearhouse rep George Zimmer, and the frustrations involved with losing your slogan.
There isn't much I can say or want to say about this other than WATCH THIS NOW if you are caught up on Doctor Who. It is a just-released mini-episode prequel to the upcoming "Day Of The Doctor", and it is wonderful.

There is nothing that makes me happier than a mockery of Superman. Thankfully, Honest Trailers took the new Superman movie "Man Of Steel" to task, and the results are both hilarious and full of delicious spoilers.

I also don't get what is happening in this song. Not only lyrically but also tempo wise. I just wanted to make sure that nobody misses out on whatever the shit is going on in this song.
Also, wasn't expecting the bald dude.
