Maverick is Real - Tom "Cole Trickle" Cruise in a Red Bull F1

Cole TricklePete "Maverick" Mitchell
Red Bull invited Tom Cruise to take a break from production of his new movie, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, to pilot the Red Bull Racing F1 car through Southern California's 2.5-mile (4km) Willow Springs circuit.
He reached a top speed of 181 mph (291 km/h) - just 4 mph off the top speed of his instructor and 13-time Grand Prix winner, David Coulthard.

After all these years, with all the craziness of Hollywood etc, Tom Cruise still owns the aviators/long hair/car & plane thing hands down.  Legend.

Doc Brown's Doing a Great Job, in Argentina - Christopher Lloyd ad

Christopher Lloyd, auditioning for a role in an Argentinian commercial:
"Great to be here Señor Spielbergo!
So what's this movie about anyways?
A store in the future?
Wow, this is real wild movie you're making here.
I want in."

“¡Ay, ay, ay, no es bueno!”

It's almost inconceivable that Christopher Lloyd would reprise his role, for a commercial, but oh well...it's one of those hollywood-star-does-foreign-ad-we-never-see things, except that's no longer true thanks to YouTube.  Great, Doc - You're Doing A Great Job, Señor Doc.

Brent Spiner does a Patrick Stewart Impression

From the title alone this was a must-watch.  We shouldn't be that impressed however as it should be prettty easy for an android like Data to pull something up out of the ol' positronic brain to imitate mon capitane, Jean-Luc Picard.

Not a Recovery Song, a Diabetes Research Song????!?!?!?!?!?

Yo listen up here's a story,
About a little mouse that lives in a lab cage
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside
Blue is his house with a blue little wheel-o
And a blue water bottle
And everything is blue for him and hisself
And everybody around
Cos his ears get all glowy from all of the gluco!

Glow Blue! da ba dee da ba die!!!

They feed me sugar through a big IV
Blue is the colour, when they test my A1C
Blue is my blood, and all my droppings, too
I get shakes and sweats, water goes right through
Blue are the other mice that sit around
Blue like my ear-inserts, they test day and night
Blue are the squeaks I make and what I think.
Blue are the probes they put in me.

Glow Blue! da ba dee da ba die!!!
da bee da dee do ba da dee da bee dee doo!

Anne Hathaway Rap on Conan reminds of Natalie Portman

(White) girls be angry & rappin!

Anne Hathaway was spittin bars freestyle like Lil' Wayne apparently, during her appearance on Conan last night. Great!

First related memory that comes to mind is Natalie Portman's classic SNL Digital Short Natalie Raps

Gotta throw in a link to Karmin Covers for more girl rapping -- it's not about color of course, it's about skillz!

Plasticine Tatooine Star Wars second string stories

"Plasticine Tatooine gives those lesser-known characters a chance to air their grievances and to lift the lid on life in the Star Wars second string"

There are so many characters in the Star Wars universe that are random, background, or just didn't make it big and didn't get the Empire On Ice treatment at Disney after the movies.  Are they bitter?  This project explores their stories. In plasticine.
Plasticine Max Rebo: bitter much?

"Animated" QR Tattoo, not Herve Villechaize. Why didn't they link Daft Punk?

The Paris "hyper"-linking is incroyable! I never knew Tattoo was a Parisian, and he wasn't the most animated of actors, yet somehow Karl Pilkington got to ink a "look-alike" for a not-so-daft video.

Captain America: Welcome/Bienvenue To Canada, Bub

Captain America: Canada Variant by Dale Eaglesham. 'Eaglesham' seems fitting
As soon to be seen at Canada's Fan Expo 2011 - a Canada themed variant of a Captain America comic cover.  Seems like what they're really giving out is a bunch of plastic Canada shields.... isn't that the old American traveller trick of putting a Canada flag patch on your backpack so foreigners don't beat the crap out of you? haha  I'm not advocating bringing anything like Captain Canuck back though. Please don't.  We do like a little Canadian patriotism though of course.  Please and Thank-you.  Now take off, ya hoser.
