Sesame Street has taken over Panem in their new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire parody! The parody is extremely funny and is titled "The Hungry Games: Catching Fur". Cookie Monster takes on the role of "Cookieness Evereat" and the character Peeta is an actual piece of peeta bread. Ha! Watch as they go through a series of food challenges in the arena.  "Cookieness Evereat is back to play in the Hungry Games. Can Cookieness and her friends, Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita escape from the poking monkeys and tickling winds? Find out in The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. May the cookies be ever in your flavor." Enjoy!

Improv Everywhere presents Harry Potter in Real Life! [video]

Improv Everywhere has just released their newest video in their "Movies in Real Life" series and it focus on the Harry Potter films! Take a look as young Harry wonders around Penn Station in New York City looking for Platform 9 3/4 and the Hogwarts Express. I really wish I could have been there to see this. (Especially since I am always in Penn Station!) The young actor they got to play Harry looks great and his trunk and owl Hedwig are fantastic! "For our latest mission, we sent an 11-year-old actor dressed as Harry Potter into New York's Pennsylvania Station to search for Platform 9 3/4. Harry wandered the station with a caged owl and a luggage cart and asked both strangers and transit employees how to get to the Hogwarts Express, presenting them with his Platform 9 3/4 ticket."


This whole video is fantastic but I loved the girl who silently freaks out at 1:09 and grown up Ron Weasley.

Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh mash-up gives us Winnie the Hutt!

Image
Artist Kenny Durkin has created a great mash-up that crosses Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh! Take a look at the cast of Winnie the Pooh as though they are character from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. All we need now is Christopher Robin frozen in carbonite. This is absolutely fantastic and I love that Eeyore is R2-D2!

Legolas gets friendzoned in great new LEGO video for The Hobbit!

Legolas gets put in an unfortunate place in the new LEGO Hobbit video from Brotherhood Workshop, the "friend zone"!  "Legolas risks his life to save Tauriel from elf-eating spiders! You'd think that would win him some points, right? No. Once you are friendzoned, nothing can save you. At least he has friends.....and a new Hobbit menu from Dennys."


The best parts of this video was that they brought back the heart broken orc and the fact that they were eating at a Denny's with the The Hobbit menu!
