Possum Massage

December 6th, 2016

Georgina Spelvin, a psychic who also answers to alter-ego ME Pearl, believes that all life, including ‘lowly life forms,’ should be well-treated. Even the garbage-loving possum. And to prove it, she’s got a Youtube page dedicated to possum massage techniques. As well as videos showing you how to use your possum to detect aliens, how to channel your possum’s past lives, and more. It’s everything a possum-lover could possibly need.

You might be wondering, is she for real? Well…no. In reality, “Georgina Spelvin” and her psychic persona ME Pearl are both played by actress Anna Dresden, who says the videos are meant to be funny.

But the possum-massaging itself is very much real. Whether you’re in the mood for a laugh, or you know a certain marsupial with a messed up back from a lifetime of dumpster-diving, you can check it out here:

Do The Dew

November 9th, 2016

Youtube chef Andy Smith, host of Cooking with Andy, has been making cooking videos since he was a teenager. But recently, he unearthed something a little different: a homemade commercial for Mountain Dew he made back in 1996. Let’s take a closer look:

We start with Mountain Dew’s beverage competitors. None of them comes close to quenching thirst like the Dew does.

Whoa! Now we’re upside down! Do NOT adjust your smart phone!

Finally, we see Andy’s co-star: the Dew, itself. Unfortunately, Andy doesn’t make it fully into the frame:

Wait, why is there a candle in this video? Isn’t it an ad for Mountai–BOOM! Reveal!

Gotta love that in-camera editing:

Andy pops into frame again, but this time, he nails it. (Almost):

He wraps things up with a plug for his cooking show, and then, finally, does indeed do the Dew:

Suddenly I’m really thirsty for some reason.

Campaign season is always a challenge for politicians’ families. But for Charlyn Daugherty, wife of Travis County Commissioner-hopeful Gerald Daugherty, the toughest part is when her husband regales her with the minutia of problems in his district.

On Monday, Gerald’s campaign released an ad that shows his devotion his constituents, and also what it’s like to be his spouse. Charlyn’s case for her husband is simple: a win for Gerald means getting him out of the house. “[He] doesn’t really have any hobbies,” she explains.

Eye On The Ball

October 19th, 2016

Teaching your kids how to play sports gives them an opportunity for a lifetime of healthy activity. It can also give the Internet a laugh. When this father tried to teach his son how to hit a baseball off a tee, it was trickier than he expected.

You start with learning the batting stance. Looks good so far:

How far does the ball go? Not very, but not bad for a first timer!
