It's no secret I can't stand MeBron's incessant back and forth over whether or not he is a nice guy, victim, or villain as he so aptly put in the douchiest Nike ad of all time (gloriously spoofed by South Park here). Mostly I had tried to block that from my mind like that one time Kirstie Alley seduced me at Fatburger, but with the latest NBA Cares commercial going around those visions came shooting back to his declaration that he is no role model. I'd call him a hypocrite but he's not even sure what he is. Either way I mashed them up, forgive me.
This is a wonderful little "alternate ending" for Yogi Bear that has been making its way around the interwebs. After watching you will quickly realize that this clearly has no connection with the actual Yogi Bear abomination that is about to hit theaters as this is actually good. The story behind this makes quite a bit of sense actually, animator Edmund Earle saw the trailer in September, knew it looked ridiculous and was ripe for parody, then decided to animate his own version based on The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. Why that movie? Because he was watching it when he first saw the trailer. It would truly be glorious if Edmund Earle ran Hollywood and Justin Timberlake was held responsible for his character's actions. [via speakeasy]
There's Good and there's Great and somewhere far past the turnout for Great, immediately past the Danza tree, lies the valley of Awesome, which is clearly where this new supercut was formed. The official origination is Pajiba editor extraordinaire Harry Hanrahan for this intoxicating 4 minute plus video of Nicholas Cage Losing His Sh*t. If there is one video clip you watch today this should most definitely be it, you don't want to make the Cage mad* now do you? Complete list of films used is available after the jump. [via pajiba]

The latest visual feast from the fine folks over at Filmdrunk may have the best supercut name of all time: "Every Arnold Scream From Every Arnold Movie". It's concise, exciting, and totally gets the point across. The Arnold in question, as if you hadn't already figured it out for yourself, is none other than The Governator and his career as a screamer is even better than you may remember. If it is possible to find fault in a mashup of Arnold Schwarzanegger screams, it would probably be the length as it runs over seven minutes, but you'll hardly be able to peel your eyes from the screen. For those conspiracy theorists out there I'm still not convinced the audio isn't actually taken from the Williams sisters' various tennis matches, either way it's still pretty awesome.
Truth be told I've got nothing but love for the alter ego of pornstar Amber Waves here, but when Harry Hanrahan over at Pajiba comes up with a new movie mashup it's sort of our duty to post the awesome. Here we've got a look at the many ways* Julianne Moore breaks down for a good cry in her various roles. The music is pretty great although it seems Harry could have got some good use out of "Don't Cry", granted everything gets better with real Guns N' Roses.
* - There aren't many ways.
It's a shame that those hoity-toity awards people didn't recognize the mesmerizing performance of Chris Klein as Charlie Nash in last year's awesomely bad Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun Li. Thankfully the interwebs brewed up a stew of awesome and the result is this amazing video below featuring all of the scenes where the master thespian blesses us with some of the finest acting the world has ever seen. Who would have thought the guy that played a dumb Rugby player in American Pie could put in a performance like this? [via filmdrunk]
It's pretty clear that the one thing preventing Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket from truly becoming a cinematic masterpiece is that for all of its amazing storytelling and performances, there really isn't much for kids to connect with. Of course it's not at the ideal time as the film's legendary director passed away eleven years ago, but it looks as if that one problem has finally been solved. A new cut is making it's way around the interwebs that replaces the abrasive sounding jacket with something a little more kid-friendly: Full Metal Disney.
Donald Duck voicing R Lee Ermey in his iconic role as Gunnery Sargeant Hartman? Yes please. Yes please very much. [via filmdrunk]
There's no way I could have waited til Friday to post this glorious video so enjoy. It seems that there are a whole bunch of these "Chinese Red Army" covers on the interwebs that I had absolutely no clue about, but if this amazing rendition of "Beat It" is any indication the Slap-Chop rap guy might have his hands full in the battle for mashup king. At least until the day someone finally grants my internet wish of a mashup featuring Tony Danza and the South Park version of Jennifer Lopez. [via the daily what]
I'm not really all that sure who this Rachel Zoe reality lady is besides literally the most annoying person on the planet and methinks something to do with fashion but the fact of the matter is she is literally retarded. The video is literally mind-blowing. Literally my mind has been blown to thousands of bits scattered across my floor. It makes me just want to literally die. If I don't die I'm literally going to crap out this video later. Steven Seagal literally hates this so much he won't even make sexual advances anymore. [via warming glow, literally]
Deliverers of awesome Umphrey's McGee have just announced their Halloween plans as well as a batch of early fall tour dates. There's a lot to get excited about so let's use the glorious copy and paste from the band's news update:
Umphrey’s McGee is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Monster Mash Up Halloween extravaganza October 30th and 31st at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri. Stay tuned for details on CID Entertainment travel packages, “Partyin’ Peeps” enhanced concert ticket packages, and more.
In true Umphrey’s Halloween tradition, we will be mixing and mashing up new combinations of tunes, and encourage all to get in the spirit of the mash up theme by dressing the part.
The Monster Mash Up shows are always a good time so it's nice to know the band seems to have officially embraced it as their Halloween gimmick. Considering Umphrey's past adventures with technology and fans, I'm pretty interested in the "'Partyin Peeps' enhanced concert ticket packages". We'll update you with that news when it comes.
The early fall dates the band announced will take them from Tennesee out west. Presale for those shows will begin on July 20th, with general onsales taking place on the 24th. Halloween ticketing will follow a week later with a July 27th presale and a general onsale on the 30th. For more information head on over to the official site.
