Because my opinions are better than yours

I take no credit for this whatsoever because someone showed me this a couple weeks ago, but it’s unbelievably awesome. You get to watch it the same way I did, by watching the real “Unstoppable” trailer first (incredibly funny on its own…unintentionally, of course), and then watching the SNL skit. Trust me it’s much funnier this way:

I realize that many people might scoff at the statement I’m about to make and say things like, “Well, how about Citizen Kane” or “But there’s Pulp Fiction,” but I don’t care. This is the greatest video/film/thing where people act of all time:

Eminem gets the ShamWow guy to do a pretty funny fake commercial/ad for his upcoming album, Recovery, due out June 21st…and pretty damn good if you ask me:

Oh, and here’s a link to the guy’s best work by far, in case that video wasn’t enough ShamWow Guy for you for the day.

UPDATE (6/18): A full 2:10 version of the commercial was posted on Eminem’s site last night and turns out to be quite a bit funnier than the abbreviated version, so I’ve updated the post with the longer one.

This is one of the bombest (yes it’s a word, look it up) commercials I’ve seen in a long time.  Called “The Cog”, it actually turns out that the commercial is over six years old and originally aired in the U.K. in three separate pieces due to its length. I assume that this is a slight nod to the old cartoons of Rube Goldberg, but then again I might be the only person in the world that remembers Rube Goldberg. Regardless, it’s pretty damn impressive:

Ok, this shit is funny as hell:*  

* Obviously, Kobe had nothing to do with this, and by no means am I endorsing him as some sort of funny-guy with any modicum of a personality.  He just has some brilliant cast of Nike writers behind him that make him look somewhat funny if you try hard to laugh, whereas if MJ was in the same position he would have written the commercial HIMSELF and it would have blown this one out of the water…

Yup, he’s getting every last bit out of that MVP award while people still remember it…..
As far as the commercial itself goes: either I laughed when I first saw this because it was funny or because there was a Phillie in it and my yelp of excitement in response happened to come out as a laugh.  Unfortunately, I don’t have time to watch it again right now to tell you which it was, so find out for yourself.

P.S. You heard it here first: WE’RE GETTING A.J. BURNETT.  His gem yesterday against the Yanks coupled with a miraculous, come-from-behind home victory for the Phils couldn’t have come on a more perfect day (the last before the All-Star Break), just to leave the idea of a still-dominant number two starter solidifying a Phils team (with an offense that can literally never be counted out of a game) that is consistently selling out its games in July lingering in the minds of Phillies management for the next four days.
And I’m not the only one who is convinced we have no chance if we don’t go after a starter like Burnett.
