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

It’s official: Rick Perry’s homophobic campaign ad has more dislikes than Rebecca Black’s “Friday” (embiggen), making it the most hated video in YouTube history.

Congrats, Rick. No one has ever deserved anything more than you deserve this.

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.”
