On what was her last appearance on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Tina Fey vowed that, after the host steps down, she will never wear a fancy dress on a late-night talk show again. “[It’s] very hard work—I don’t know if you’re aware of the contraptions under here.”
So to mark the occasion, she decided to strip down to her Spanx and give Letterman the dress: “Because this is my last time wearing a fancy dress on a talk show, and conforming to gender norms out of respect for you … I want to give you the dress.”
The front of her Spanx was emblazoned with the words, “BYE DAVID;” the back, #LastDressEver. Check out the clip above.
A new YouTube video reimagines Broad City—co-created by and starring Philly comedian Abbi Jacobson—as an episode of Friends. It comes complete with a new intro to the tune of “I’ll Be There for You” and a few-second segue into an episode with a cheesy ’90s-sitcom laugh track. It’s hilarious and 49 seconds long. Check it out above.
Microsoft has created the website equivalent to one of those carnival attractions that claims to be able to guess your age and weight. “How Old Do I Look” uses “state-of-the-art, cloud-based algorithms” to decipher human faces, guess their age, and taunt the gay community for eternity.
Gay Star Newsgave it a test run (and veered into dangerous territory) using photos of 18 gay icons. The results were a little off-base. The site guessed Christina Aguilera was 48 (14 years older than what it guessed for Cher!), Ellen was 64 (even with all that Cover Girl!?) and Madonna was 27 (it must have confused her with her boyfriends.)
I wanted to tinker with it, too, and I thought “What better way than to use Philly drag queens?!” That couldn’t get me into any trouble at all, right? It’s all fun and games, people, and Microsoft even admits that they’re still working to improve the feature. So without further adieu, Microsoft attempts to guess the ages of some of our most popular drag queens:
Microsoft guessed Brittany Lynn as 38. One of her most outgoing sequins just turned 14, apparently.
Martha Graham Cracker, 46
Ariel Versace, 17; special guest BibleGirl666, 30
Pissi Myles (top), 40; Mimi Imfurst, a fresh-faced 20
Microsoft didn't quite know how to figure out Pretty Girl's face.
Omyra Lynn, 36; The Goddess Isis 37; and Navaya Shay, 46.
Satine Harlow, 28
Maddy Milan, 31
Me (because it's only fair I do myself, too), 32; Tammy Faymous, 31
Lovebirds Lily St. Queer, 33; Mistor Fahrenheit, 27
Two local heroes, Tina Fey and M. Night Shyamalan, collide in this awesome mashup from Staten Island comedy/party outfit Super Secret Show. They’ve taken the catchy opening song to Fey’s Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and mixed it with clips from Shyamalan’s 2000, Bruce Willis-starring thriller Unbreakable. They call it “Unbreakable Bruce Willis,” naturally.
Check it out above, and good luck getting it out of your head later.
A New Jersey woman is channeling Flo Rida in a new parody video in which she raps about why you should take part in tonight’s Dining Out for Life event.
Jade Gasper altered the words to Flo Rida’s “G.D.F.R (Goin’ Down For Real),” spitting rhymes like “Ordered just one app? You should have ordered five! / Get a few entrees but leave lots of room for pie.”
Check out the video above, and see her in person tonight a Villari’s Lakeside Restaurant & Bar in South Jersey, where she’ll be bopping from table to table asking for donations—and making sure you order dessert.
Amy Schumer, whose new show Inside Amy Schumer debuted Tuesday night, was pulling all kinds of crazy shenanigans on the red carpet of last night’s Time 100 gala in New York City. You likely saw this on social media, where she pretended to fall flat on her face in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:
But Kimye weren’t the only celebrities subject to her buffoonery: Bradley Cooper got a taste of it, too. According to Business Insider, she started heckling the Jenkintown star right as he walked onto the red carpet, yelling his name like one of the fans waiting in line to see him. Cooper finally gave her a hug and posed for a photograph, but when he left, she told the press line that, “We’re engaged!”
The horde show up in random places all over the city. Check out the video to see them lurking from beneath a bridge in Fairmount Park, in the plaza of City Hall and even down one of those cramped, cobblestone streets in, I’m guessing, Old City.
A couple from Oregon wrote and recorded a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song parody that effectively dropped the news to their family and friends that they’re expecting.
The video has since gone viral, being viewed on YouTube over 1.6 million times. The song, originally penned and performed by Philly rap duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, includes so-bad-they’re-good lyrics, like “I woke up in the morning about 7 or 8 and thought to myself, ‘Oh man, I’m late! ’Looked at the test stick, it was finally there. A little plus sign—we’re now three, not a pair.”
Check it out above; everyone else in the world did.
“No need to hide your emotions. Everyone has been deeply affected by Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction. Teenage girls aren’t the only ones who can fangirl,” they write on their YouTube post.
They’ve come up with an original song, “I Need You In My Life,” that’s sung to the tune of 1D’s “Story of My Life.” It starts like this:
“Listen to the sound of the people who cry for you, Zayn / 1D will keep going, but I know that it won’t be the same / You left without a warning, now you say you’re making music on your own / I see your tweets and hit reply, but tears just keep falling on my phone.”
And it only gets sillier from there. Check out the full video above.
