Considering this SNL digital short earned nearly 2 million views in a day, it’s seems likely you’ve already seen this. But if you haven’t, you should because it’s hilarious to anyone who watches The Office. Bilbo Baggins makes a perfect Jim and Gollum as Dwight is just about right.

I know some tall people. In fact, my last roommate was 6’7″. Ceiling fans and doorways were his worst enemies. I often giggled to myself when he needed to duck to walk off the subway. But 8’3″!!! That is a full foot and a half taller than the tallest person I know. Just look at those huge converse. How would you ever have room in your closet for more than two shoes?

I’m conflicted about this one, though undoubtedly I think it’s going to gain a ton of attention. Partly, because it shines light on very relevant issues that effects many woman (including myself). Women’s workplace inequality is so prevalent that the Columbia Business School students who made this parody music video recognize the pains of female leadership before they even start their careers. That said, I don’t love how it paints women outside to office as either meek housewives or exactly the same as stereotypical high powered men.

Women should be encouraged to be who ever they want to be when they walk out that office door. Be it an artist, athlete, homemaker, or awesome friend. Instead, this video makes powerful women aspire to be alcoholic, sex maniacs who oppress men. I really could do without that bit, but I think the larger message is still worth sharing

And I am so happy that I’ve watched this third installment of my favorite googly eyed friend a dozen times. I am one of those people who are obsessed. Their new book exists because I will buy it. I figure it’s only fair since these videos that bring me so much joy the once a year they are released cost me nothing. So heck yeah I’ll buy that book, just so you can release a new episode next year.

Scotland native and filmmaker, Danny Macaskill, recently took to the peaks of Isle of Skye with his mountain bike. Danny might be a little insane in his dare devil ways, but these ridge side views are simply stunning. Uploaded yesterday, The Ridge has already been viewed 2 million times in a single day.

Lighting is the secret to any good photo. But why stop there? Jeff Goldblum (with the help of GE Link) wants you to make your whole life look like one big (hilarious) photo shoot. According to our most trusted dinosaur doctor Jeff, ‘now you can get successful guy lighting at normal guy prices…for an embarrassingly small amount of money you can kiss your horribly lit non-successful life goodbye.’ Well, Jeff, I’m sold.

Have you ever thought ‘man, I wish I had a pet camera drone I could wear as a bracelet on my wrist and release to do my biddings whenever I need a hands-free selfie?’ Well, if you have you are luck, because it now exists. Nixie is an entry in Intel’s wearable competition here in SF next month. We will see how this little photobug does.
