If you’ve ever wondered how the majority of sequels get knocked off track and can’t hold a candle to the original, then this video from Key & Peele will help you put all the pieces together. “It’s called brainstorming, not brain drizzling, sweet pea,” intones Star Magic Jackson, Jr (Peele) as he waxes fabulous to Key’s spot-on Joe Dante. Comedy maestros Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele take a stab at Hollywood’s questionable sequel-making process in this bit. For a taste of some killer movie making riffing, hit the jump.

chatroulette

When a friend said I needed to check out this Chatroulette video, I figured he was just pulling a prank on me. I mean seriously, every time I’ve gone on Chatroulette all I’ve ended up seeing some really hairy Dude’s balls. Truthfully, I didn’t even think anyone else went on Chatroulette either so this video was quite the surprise.
