Ever Wonder Why Starbucks Spells Your Name Wrong?

Starbucks3

(PCM) We have all been through it before. You order up your favorite tasty beverage at Starbucks and give them your name for pick-up only to find out the spelling has been been completely butchered. Sometimes it is even the simplest of names such as Mike or Mary for example.

Well, guess what? The Starbucks baristas are messing with you, at least according to comedian Paul Gale who has created a hilarious parody video explaining all of the reasons why Starbucks enjoys getting your name wrong.

In the video Gale takes on the role of a Starbucks barista and lists the many reasons that misspelling your name is the highlight of his day. He claims that he will “never, ever stop” and that misspelling your name is the way in which he “plays with your emotions in a shrewd and calculated way. And it worked”.

It is great to see that Starbucks can keep a sense of humor about themselves and Gale also targets the customers who feed into the spelling errors by posting their stories and images of the cups all over social media.

Check out the hilarious video below:

Watch President Obama Rap To Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”

Obama1

(PCM) We really don’t think these lip-dub videos will ever get old!  A team of people with a lot free time on their hands and some excellent video mash-up skills have put together a video that features President Obama lip-dub rapping to Iggy Azalea’s hit song “Fancy”.

While, of course, President Obama himself is not actually rapping in the video, the clip is made up of a bunch of clips cut from Obama’s speeches at various public events, press conferences and appearances.

If you found this version of President Obama getting “Fancy” than you are in luck because the creators have a whole YouTube channel title “Baraksdub” which features other hilarious mash-up. The channel will have another President Obama lip-dub video for Ariana Grande’s “Problem” set to go live next week.

Rob Lowe Releases A Brilliantly Cheesy Promo For Shark Week

Rob-Lowe1

(PCM) Discovery’s Shark Week is only about a week away and actor Rob Lowe has just revealed his hilarious, yet completely cheesy promo during which he only utters a single catchphrase.

In the slow-motion clip, Lowe is featured in red shorts and a white tank top, water-skiing on the backs of two sharks, all while slinging chum over his shoulders. Oh, wait, did we mention there was also a hot blonde mermaid clinging to his leg…yeah there was that, too!

The clip ends with Lowe, in a husky voice saying “So Sharky”!  Why do I seriously see this becoming the newest catchphrase of the summer!  I definitely think there are a lot of people that would be down to get ‘sharky’ with Lowe!

“I will not rest or even eat (with the exception of fruit pies) until ‘So sharky’ is the new ‘swaggy,'” Lowe tweeted later.

Creator Rob Liefeld Explains Leaked Deadpool Test Footage

(PCM) It did not last long. In the course of hours, while many YouTube accounts re-broadcasted the Leaked Deadpool Test Footage from 2012 with Ryan Reynolds voicing Deadpool – it was all over. Gone, vanished. Fox put the kibosh on everyone. Well, everyone that didn’t download it like the leaked Deadpool movie script.

The footage was ideal. It was all CG, but it captured Deadpool accurately. It was R-rated, it was violent, it was irreverent and yes, Deadpool broke the fourth wall (when an actor or character addresses the audience). Watching Deadpool kill and make you laugh in the same breath is scarily Grand Theft Auto’ish. You feel guilty enjoying such mayhem.

The two minute short was first uploaded in grainy cam footage from Comic-Con 2014. Then it was up on Vimeo in full digital HD! Inside six hours it was all over. If you didn’t watch it quick. You have really missed out. Of course some smart and Internet savvy people downloaded before it vanished. Maybe you will find it bit torrented in weeks to come?

But as this all transpired the creator Rob Liefeld commented to keep it all in perspective.

“To ALL who have enjoyed seeing the DP footage, enjoy it for what it is. Test’s are done for films all the time and you have glimpsed process… But I hesitate to encourage your hopes on behalf of the fact that ALL Studios are run to the sound of their own particular drum… What would be more important to the bean counters at any studio are the spread sheets of the enormous Deadpool licensing Marvel generates… There is no doubt that a DP film would OPEN to an impressive number and be profitable. This is NOT Scott Pilgrim or Kick-Ass.

“DP is One of Marvel’s TOP 3 popular characters of the last 20 years AND a prominent member of the X-MEN library-My 1 kernal of optimism… Is that DP will happen eventually, 5-6 years, and as frustrating as that sounds it would still be faster to screen that Spidey, X-Men and FF… Please just manage expectations, thats all I’m saying in regards to Deadpool. Nothing moves fast in Hollywood…. Except Divergent.”

Okay, let’s assume you never see the leaked Deadpool test footage shot in 2012. It’s impossible to spoil, here is a summary.

Deadpool is sitting on the ledge of an overpass outside New York City’s Manhattan skyline. References to the Hudson Parkway and the GW bridge are noticeable on green highway advisories. Deadpool immediately breaks the fourth wall introducing himself while occupying himself with crayons and rapping to Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl on his transistor radio. “Oh, hello there. I bet you’re wondering why red suit? Well, that’s so the bad guys can’t see me bleed.” Deadpool looks off camera and calls out as if trying to gain someone’s attention. “Hey!”  Deadpool turns back to the viewer, “Let’s hope these guys are wearing their brown pants.”

He drops 50 or so feet with Angle of the Morning  sung by Juice Newton accompanying his fall through the sunroof of some thugs in an SUV escorted by a motorcycle guard. He proceeds to kill all four inside while making jokes. They are Spanish in appearance so he begins in Spanish, then cuts to English, “There’s no easy way to say this.” Soap opera suspense music interjects, “I’m pregnant Trevor.”  The fighting begins.

Deadpool pops a seatbelt and shoves an assailant out the door. His leg is caught on the belt momentarily and forces his body back under the vehicle and is violently run over.

At one point a backseat thug presses his face into the seat cushion. “Rich…Corinthian leather…”

Using his ability to self heal, Deadpool purposely rolls the vehicle. The motorcycle guard takes notice of the wreck occurring.demonstrating superhuman agility by stopping and drawing his weapon with ease to machine gun the rolling SUV which quickly rolls towards him. In slomo the open sun roof exposes Deadpool casually holding up a crayon picture of himself cutting off a man on a motorcycle’s head complete with helmet. At this point the SUV is suspended in air over the guard and returns to normal speed. Deadpool slashes his head off and we cut to the SUV resting still with an open passenger window. The helmet rises up out of the window then suddenly shakes as it’s suspended from Deadpools fist.

Keep in mind, Liefeld saw this footage two years ago and he’s had to suffer longer than anyone knowing how good something is yet so far out of reach. The best you can really do is just keep reading the comic. It’s damn good, it’s strangely original. And it gently immerses you into the Marvel universe if you are a reluctant comic book reader.
