Eagles Fan Drops Funny Pope Parody Video

Early this morning, Delaware County’s Alex Dilks Pandola dropped a funny parody video on his YouTube channel turns Lady Gaga’s “Dope” into a song about the pope.

When the video begins, you hear Mayor Nutter’s voice going on about the pope’s visit while Inquirer headlines, like “Philadelphia In a State of Panic As Pope Visit Nears,” flash on the screen. Then Dilks comes out of the house wearing an Eagles Jersey.

Seth Meyers Disses Philly in Opening Monologue

Late Night host Seth Meyers dropped a meme on his Facebook page yesterday evening in which he takes a jab at Philadelphia:

Har, har, har.

The joke came in the middle of his opening monologue, to a pretty good burst of applause. Philly has always had a reputation for being rough and tumble, which was no doubt highlighted a few weeks ago when hitchBOT was torn to shreds in the streets of Old City. That fact didn’t escape a few commenters on the post, who said things like, “Pretty sure Hitchbot was the one conducting the survey,” and “And left [the person making the survey] for dead in an alley like the hitchhiking robot.”

WATCH: Short Film Imagines HitchBOT Getting Revenge on Philly

After the unfortunate death and obliteration of HitchBOT in the streets of Philadelphia, YouTube user Boyd Vico put together a funny video in which the HitchBOT family gets revenge on the City of Brotherly Love. In Venge-Bot: Coded to Kill, HitchBOT’s dad goes on a killing rampage, bludgeoning a bunch of dudes trying to imitate the Philly accent.

“Justice is blind, and now so are you,” says the little beep-bopper as he squeezes out one man’s eyes. The bot ain’t playing around. Watch the video above and breathe a little easier that justice was kind of served in this horrible, senseless crime.

Kevin Bacon Campaigns for More Male Nudity in the Movies

In a new video filmed by Mashable, Philly’s Kevin Bacon introduces a tongue-in-cheek (but maybe also a little serious) PSA to bring more full-frontal male nudity to the big screen.

“In so many films and TV shows we see gratuitous female nudity. That’s not okay,” he begins. “It’s not fair to actresses and it’s not fair to actors, because we want to be naked, too. Gentlemen, it’s time to free your bacon. And by bacon, of course, I mean your wiener, your balls, your butt.”

WATCH: Don Rickles Insults Questlove on The Tonight Show

Legendary comedian Don Rickles has made a career out of ribbing people—so much so that, in the comedy world, it’s considered a badge of honor to take an insult from the 89-year-old funny man. But his no-holds-barred jabs aren’t restricted to comedians. Last night, before he even got comfortable in his seat on the Tonight Show, he went straight for house drummer and Philly native Questlove, who had just finished playing Rickles’ intro music with the Roots.

Tina Fey and Kimmy Schmidt Cast Lip-Sync Beyoncé’s “Flawless”

Last night, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess posted on Instagram a video of him, Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski lip-syncing Beyoncé’s “Flawless.”

The video was taken from a jet and, being an Instagram post, it’s dreadfully short. They all get to show off their lip-syncing skills, though—especially Fey, who nails it with an extra bit of sass at the end.

Earlier that day, the crew attended the Television Critics Association press tour to talk up season two of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The series, which was created by Fey and her 30 Rock co-hort Robert Carlock, is due out late 2015.

WATCH: Judd Apatow Impersonate Bill Cosby On Fallon

Director Judd Apatow is everywhere lately, making the media rounds to promote his new Amy Schumer-starring film (and from what I hear a must-see) Trainwreck. Last night he stopped by Fallon, where he got a chance to show off the trade that got him started in show business: standup. His 4-minute set is pretty great — especially the moment where he does his Bill Cosby impression and confronts the allegations against the legendary comedian.
