Arguably one of the worst comic movies ever made gets an Honest Trailer treatment, and boy is it worth it. Thanks a lot, Screen Junkies, for even using the cast and crew footage to truly lambaste this one... INTO THE ICE AGE.
I think number 13 is by far my most favorite mispronunciation that has ever existed in the history of all things that have ever been mispronounced.
I guess the misunderstanding over the definition of what is or is not a date is such a trope that there is enough footage to make a supercut, brought to you by HowAboutWe.

This is a wonderful idea, re-editing the "Pacific Rim" trailer into the style of the original kaiju films of Japan. If you didn't realize this film was basically a Godzilla movie with anime sensibilities, now you do.
I will admit that after watching this, I realized I really didn't know this book as well as I thought I did.
Jimmy Fallon did a wonderful set of gag edits a while back, in which footage of news anchor Brian Williams was edited together to make it appear as if he was wrapping. Well, considering Mark Wahlberg was on Fallon recently, he took the opportunity to take a crack at the former-rapper with this rendition of "Good Vibrations".
This video from KBCreativeLab does a great job at non-explicitly showing the vast differences between porn sex and actual normal person sex. Gotta love that bondage comparison.
James Thurber's classic short story, "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" is getting another big-screen adaptation, and boy does it look absolutely stunning. Watch it for yourself, and be amazed that Ben Stiller manages to stay relevant.

It's been a while since our pal Ze Frank had a new segment in his "True Facts" series. Thankfully, it was worth the wait as he discusses the creepy-yet-adorable owl in this newest video.

Sometimes you just have to post things that don't make sense, but please the ear. And this Old Spice remix done by Melody Sheep, (known for their Symphony of Science series), is just that.

In response to an /r/AskReddit post about the "scariest/creepiest thing you've ever seen/heard", user blue_tidal gave a horrific story about "Smiling Man". Then, to make things even creepier, Michael Evans made it into a short film. Sleep with the lights on tonight, folks.
Have you been watching Thug Notes? Well, you should be, you uncultured heathen! Catch up on a few right here, or head to their channel and subscribe. In the meantime, let Sparky Sweets PhD give you the freshest literary analysis this side of Cliff Notes.
If you were unable, somehow, to see the GLARING inherent problems with Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video, then *boy* do I have something for you. Thankfully, Mod Carousel is here to highlight these problems for you, the uninitiated.

Forget the rest of the Comic-Con footage, this is what you really needed to see: Neil deGrasse Tyson's new reboot of the epic Carl Sagan's "Cosmos".

Thug Notes not only subverts the thug stereotype, but it does it in such a way as to educate and entertain. Also, it does a damn fine analysis on literary classics.

I think it is amazing how many popular figures in culture have actual names that were decided upon at one time. Thanks to Mental Floss, I now know more than I could have ever imagined.

You know it is a Monday morning when things like this are fascinating enough to get attention. However, having said that, I now want to watch Dean Pelton and Jeff Winger's version.

Well, I think I am going to jam a pencil in each ear until they touch in the middle, hopefully killing my ability to ever remember listening to this whole thing.

With the sequel about to come out, why not remind yourself why you shouldn't waste your money with this Honest Trailer from the fine folks at Screen Junkies.

Thug Notes really is something I wish existed when I was in high school/college. This time, Pride & Prejudice gets a treatment. Previous installments over here!

Who doesn't love "Twin Peaks"? And even better, who doesn't love either coffee, pie, or a good supercut? Slacktory knows the value of all three with this gem.
Also, bonus image for awesomeness:

I am always fascinated by PBS Idea Channel and the level of work they put into their videos. In this episode, they discuss if out of all the things mankind has discovered, is climate change the greatest of those discoveries?
