This is the future of television right here. Stick Conan O’Brien, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in a car with a member of public and watch them drive around abusing drivers, buying weed and smoking up a storm.
Who needs a chat show?
BTW – Ice Cube is ageless.
Regular readers of this website, (yes, all two of you), will know we’re massive fans of US chat show host Conan O’Brien and in particular the videos he makes.
His latest addition might just be his best yet, which sees him attempt to recreate scenes from the recently released male stripper movie Magic Mike XXL, in front of his assistant and her friends as they prepare to got to the cinema and watch the movie.
He really is the king of making people feel awkward and uncomfortable.
Here’s the first official teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror TV series Ash Vs Evil Dead.
It’s understood the series will comprise of 10 half-hour episodes and will star Bruce Campbell as he reprises his iconic role of Deadite hunter Ash Williams. Director Sam Raimi, who helmed the original three Evil Dead movies will produce.
The official plot rattles along like so:
Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope.
Ash Vs The Evil Dead will air this autumn.
So David Letterman signed off from The Late Show for the final time last night, bringing the curtain down on an illustrious 33 year career as the greatest chat show host that ever lived. I grew up watching Letterman and even though I’m from the other side of the pond I had a fond appreciation for the man’s laid-back, nonplussed approach to being a chat show host.
Of course the final show was an emotional affair and following his farewell the Foo Fighters, (as requested by the man himself), played a live version of Everlong as viewers were treated to a fantastic montage of Letterman’s time spent entertaining the masses.
This is how you do a proper send-off.
N.B. And how’s this for a gesture. Rival chat show host Conan O’Brien urged all of his viewers to change the channel to watch Letterman’s farewell while he was hosting his own show. Classy.
This amazing animated short by artist Paul Johnson pays homage to the late 80s early 90s Japanese anime style TV programmes of that era.
TIE Fighter is a work of passion by Johnson and it shows. It took him four years to painstakingly hand draw the entire short. He explains:
“What if there was an Empire-focused short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.”
There is no need to apologise Paul. You nailed it!
I have the distinct feeling that the forthcoming fifth series of Game Of Thrones will be soaked in blood.
Here’s the latest trailer for the award winning series.
The video above was lovingly made by Paul Robertson, the man behind the Scott Pilgrim video game, and fellow game developer Ivan Dixon which features the full Simpsons introduction but converted to pastel pixel art.
As you can see this fan made video is pretty much the best intro The Simpsons has had yet.
