Jon Lajoie Hilariously Rips Every Annoying Ad of the Past 5 Years

jlj

It’s been really exciting to watch Jon Lajoie’s career take shape as he crawls outside of his taco shell and blossoms into a beautiful chalupa-fly. Those muddy low-grade home videos are long behind him but I don’t regret forcing my friends to watch Show Me Your Genitals at every party I went to six years ago. Seriously, it’s still funny as hell.  Ok, so perhaps not much has changed in my own life but Jon Lajoie has crossed over more than just the Canadian border. The aspring comic has gone from shooting rap videos about how normal his every day life was to co-starring on the FX comedy hit The League and getting his own Comedy Central special.  If you’ve seen his videos, it’s not hard to believe either.  The guy is absolutely hilarious.

Of course Jon’s YouTube channel seemed to slow down as his fame slowly grew- though every now and then he would bless us with another gem like his anti-marriage equality video. Today, Mr. Lajoie released a video that easily stands beside his classics with a surprisingly well-produced send-up of modern day commercials. It perfectly captures those sugary indie-pop songs that have candy-coated every mobile device ad since 2009.  Without spoiling the video’s charm, I’ll just warn viewers that it gets morbid in it’s last moments …though fans of his Cold Blooded Christmas carol probably won’t mind. Just watch it.

Other must-see Jon Lajoie classics:

Everyday Normal Guy

Everyday Normal Guy 2

Everyday Normal Crew

Show Me Your Genitals

Sunday Afternoon

High As F***

The Best Song

Cold Blooded Christmas

Marriage Equality

F*** Everything

Awful ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ poster inspires Photoshop mockery

What you see above is the official poster for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Yeah, pretty awful. You’ll notice that I “forgot” to include it when I discussed the new X-Men trailer on Monday, opting for some pretty sweet fan-art instead. That was intentional. Not only are lighting and shadowing effects poorly done but the positioning of the characters is awkward at best. Placing a hovering wheelchair-bound Professor X (Patrick Stewart) above an unexplained cloud of fire was probably not the best idea.

Thankfully, the internet is host to thousands of people who are more skilled with Photoshop and have a better sense of humor, than whoever made the poster above.

Observe these superior modifications:

 

 

…and the grand finale (warning: immature humor). 

Official “Doge” car coming to NASCAR, thanks to Reddit

Look carefully at the hood of the rendered vehicle above. See anything? No? Keep staring and see if you notice anything familiar…

Yup, it’s the concerned shiba face from the “doge” meme that just won’t die. For those who haven’t already had their favorite subreddit or facebook wall infested with this adorable face, I will gladly fill you in with a bit of internet meme history.

In 2010 a kindergarten teacher posted images of her newly adopted shiba inu to her personal blog, including the image of the concerned facial expression seen above.  A few months later, a Reddit user took it upon themselves to share the humorous image along with a amusingly misspelled submission title, seen as LBMO LOOK @ THIS FUKKEN DOGE. The image of the dog slowly spread over Tumblr, 4chan and Facebook over the next two years until a new blog emerged under the name Shiba Confessions in August of 2012. The blog continued the tradition of referring to the shiba as “doge” also beginning to call the breed “shibes”, and started a trend of posting phrases in Comic Sans font over unrelated shiba images. In January of 2013 a subreddit called r/doge was started, dedicated solely to the rapidfire spreading of images like this one…

If that wasn’t enough, last December a user on a forum based around the popular digital currency BitCoin suggested starting a satirical currency based on the popular meme, calling it “Dogecoin”.

The idea was met with enthusiastic reception, an official website was launched as well as r/dogecoin, which in itself gained 2,600 subscribers within the first week. The currency became so popular that tech blogs and news sites were reporting that at it’s peak, the dog-faced virtual coins were worth $400 each.  Look at this insanity…LOOK AT IT.

The meme, now having transformed into a seemingly legitimate currency, reached a goal to bring Jamaican bob-sledders to the Olympics, helped a man sell his home and now, thanks in part to an entrepreneur accidentally donating 13,000 dollars to the cause, Reddit users at r/dogecoin have fully succeeded in bringing a doge-based car to NASCAR. The car is to be driven by racer #98 Josh Wise, who will be answering questions in a Reddit AMA tomorrow night at 9pm EST. 

What does this mean for the currency and shiba-based meme that seems to have outlived it’s expected lifespan?

Could we possibly end up getting physical doge currency?

Might we one day see rap videos where green doge-faced bills are raining from the hands of our favorite artists?

One can only hope.

Scully gets down with SCIENCE!

The fantastic Wretched Ryan English has put together a really amusing supercut of Scully’s frequent use of the word “science” throughout all nine glorious seasons of The X-Files.

 

 

Now I want someone to do a 30-minute supercut of the constant “SCULLAYYYYY” “MULD-ERRRRRR” marco-polo that goes on between these two.  That can’t be too hard, right?
