International Incident of the Day

International Incident of the Day: A Russian reporter at a press junket attached to the Russian premiere of Friends With Benefits had the gall to ask Justin Timberlake why movies (in lieu of, say, music). A delay in translation kept Timberlake from responding, so his co-star Mila Kunis stepped in to deliver a verbal smackdown in the reporters native tongue.

Why movies? Why not? Kunis, who moved to California from Ukraine at age 7, testily replied. What kind of question is that? Why are you here?

боом! роустед.

Lights Out

The red-light traffic camera company American Traffic Solutions has seen its fair share of red-light running related collisions.

Last year, ATS began sharing footage of those collisions on YouTube in the hopes of convincing red-light runners to change their life-threatening habit.

A National Motorists Association rep responded with skepticism toward the company’s claim that its cameras “change driver behavior and help save lives,” noting that the videos demonstrate how “their red light system doesn’t stop crashes.”

Still, it’s a compilation of a bunch of cars crashing, and since it was approved for release we can only assume that none of the accidents resulted in serious injuries, right? Right? Anyway, here’s a link to the Benny Hillified version of this video.

I’ll see you in Hell.

Important Internet Milestone of the Day

That’ll Do of the Day

Refusing to be defined by his deformity, a boar born without hind legs in China’s eastern Anhui Province learned to walk on his front trotters.

“It took lots of time and devotion,” said owner Ge Xinping. “But now all villagers love him as it walks like an upside down gymnast.”

Cast Reunion of the Day

On the set, Danny Tamberelli (little Pete) had his amp blown up by Iggy Pop, got served ice-cream from Michael Stipe and traded CD’s with Steve Buscemi.

Skyrim Antics of the Day

YouTuber zwoooooosh has discovered a reason to get excited about Skyrim that has nothing to do with awesome combat spells or dragonslaying.

It makes sense, though. Who wants to tell the frickin’ Dragonborn not to put baskets on people’s heads?

inb4 so, it’s a hat simulator?

Your New Favorite Flickr Feed of the Day

Nightmares Fear Factory might be “the longest running and scariest haunted house in North America, possibly the world,” but it’s nowhere near as scary as the prospect of ending up on its Flickr feed looking like a frightened fool for the world to see.

A few choice fools after the jump:
