Remember the time when Mystery Inc. ran into “Weird Al” Yankovic and Batman?

CollegeHumor Exclusive: "Weird Al" Yankovic Music Video: FOIL (Parody of "Royals" by Lorde)

Like any budding comedy lovers with a boom box or basic cable, we grew up loving Weird Al Yankovic. So when he asked us to help him make the music video for “Foil” (a parody of “Royals”) off Al’s new album, Mandatory Fun, we agreed. Actually, we high-fived each other, threw up from excitement, composed ourselves and agreed.

Over a few marvelous weeks in February and March, our writers and producers worked with Al to bring his “Foil” video to life. Here is the result in all its Yankovician magnificence, featuring cameos from Patton Oswalt, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, as well as CH alumni Elaine Carroll and Andrée Vermeulen.

See behind-the-scenes photos here.

I love this video for the turn it takes around 1:17 when you realize it’s not the level of weirdness you thought you were getting at first.

Also Weird Al has always been able to do impressive-expressive-eyebrow-gesture-fu that I admire.

Weird Al’s releasing a video a day until July 21st from his new album. Links all of those found here, WeirdAl.com All of them so far are fun for the usual - weirdness and celebrity cameos. The English major in me is enjoying Word Crimes a lot.

I am having some delightful Al-nostalgia music listening in celebration.

"Wait no, I don’t want that shot! You have to listen to me, we have the same hair!!!"

The Secret World. Still figuring out if I like it or not. I am liking the Mad Scientist hairstyle at least.

Now for a bit of the DA:O intro. Like DAII, I am just not getting the basic controls of this game. I find myself wanting to space bar through conversations, too. >.<

Yes, I made Vel a bit squinty-eyed. It makes me laugh.

I am having SUCH a giggle over this because your mage and my mage (the one I’m now trying to finish with)? They have the same hairdo. Mine’s in red (such a non surprise). Except mine has a dorky hat. Many of the mage hats are deeply silly. And there’s no “turn helm off” option either.

Now I&#8217;m never going to remember what the original chair he was sitting in looked like&#8230;Heh.

New Jersey-based artist Gregory Halili creates stunning bas-relief skulls delicately hand-carved and painted on mother of pearl shells. He prefers to work with gold-lip and black-lip mother of pearl found in shells collected from the Philippines, first carving them by hand and then using oil paint to dab muted tones of color onto the iridescent surface.

For months, the internet has been intrigued by the mystery of a YouTube channel called Webdriver Torso, which has been uploading thousands of videos that just consist of colors and tones. Well the mystery has been solved and the resolution is actually pretty satisfying.

L’enfer Cabaret, Boulevard de Clichy, Montmartre, Paris

Built circa 1890; demolished circa 1952.

Entertainment inside the “inferno of hell” included musicians dressed as devils and interior volcanos that spewed scented lava of molten gold. 

After the “cabaret artistique” was demolished, the site became a Monoprix retail store.

Monoprix?! How are the mighty fallen…

aaahh I couldn’t help myself :’D

Would totally buy one of these if the artist ever got them into plush form. They make a nice set together, don’t they? (Heh.)

LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.
There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
Wish they ventured into the 17th century, but. Still. What a time to be alive.

It’s like they hit the end of the 1580s and everyone realized it had spun out of control and started shrieking “too much ruff.  Too much ruff!  Pull back!  Pull back!”
