This incredible footage catches the moment a gas leak from a high pressure main ignites in a street in Philadelphia. The blast, which happened on Tuesday night killed a 19 year-old gas worker and seriously injured four others including a firefighter. Emergency services were apparently called to the scene before the explosion to fix a leaking gas main. For further details and the full story chart a course for NBC Philadelphia.
Just as well he didn’t try this lying on his back or his over sized balls would’ve snagged on the train’s undercarriage.
Not content with raping our collective childhood the great silver bearded one is now striking fear into nerds across the globe by stating that he truly believes the world is going to end next year. The famous director, (famous for destroying not one but two cherished film franchises), let it slip to Fozzie Bear funny man Seth Rogen during a recent meeting between the two that he really does buy into all that Mayan hocus pocus.
It seems though that long time friend Steven Spielberg doesn’t share the same belief with Lucas, who was present when the director decided to go all Nostradamusy. Seth recalled:
“George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it.
“He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ‘My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…’

Yes last night we went back on our promise of never watching reality TV but in our defence Channel Four’s Big, Fat, Gypsy Wedding was more of a traditional documentary. What is there to say about this series which probably hasn’t already been said? Travelling people, who refuse to pay tax or integrate with local communities, enforce stringent and sexist rules on their women who are ‘grabbed’ if they’re single and physically forced to become intimate with their male counterparts, regardless of their age. Last night’s episode dealt with a gypsy girl’s communion whose outfit was based on a dress from the Eddie Murphy film Coming To America, (can’t write that shit), and the wedding of 17 year-old Josie which looked like a Christina Aguilera music video. As a good friend of ours often laments this is true ‘car crash’ TV which must be watched with the use of a seat belt buckled into your chair. Don’t worry if you missed it because we’ve posted the entire episode below thanks to 4 On Demand.
This is a trailer for a Dutch film released at the end of last year called New Kids Turbo based on five characters who feature in a hit television comedy series in Holland called, surprisingly, New Kids. The film basically outlines how these five lager drinking, tracksuit wearing, techno listening wasters, (chavs if you’re in England, neds if you’re in Scotland and rednecks if you’re in America), end up dealing with civil unrest in their home town due to the country’s economic collapse. Apparently they end up arming themselves to the teeth following a visit to a local farmer who also happens to be a survivalist Nazi.
Below is the promotional music video by Dutch happy hardcore DJ Paul Elstak, whose music features heavily throughout the film. Guns and pumping techno? What more do you want from a movie?
We have absolutely no idea what the f@ck is going on here but it appears to be a Jeremy Kyle/Jerry Springer style programme on Russian TV. Obviously it’s staged but that doesn’t detract from the madness and mayhem which subsequently follow. If only daytime telly was more like this in Blighty. Those crazy red Russkies.
As we wipe away the salty tears of laughter from our cheeks the whole crew here can confirm that all the other future ‘epic fails’ of the next 11 months won’t come anywhere near this. The absolute joy we’ve had playing this clip over and over and over again is a thing of sheer beauty. Take a bow sir.
