Funny or Die has been sorry a lot lately. Now they’re apologizing for a fake hoverboard video. After the weirdness with Jerry O’Connell a few weeks back, the site has admitted the HUVr viral video released on Tuesday was, indeed, a ruse.
The mythic Back to the Future Part II prop has been on wish lists since 1989 and despite prop replicas and real life scientific attempts, we’re no closer to zipping around in the air like Marty McFly than we were 25 years ago. That didn’t change yesterday, despite a “company” called HUVr releasing videos starring the likes of Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk and Terrell Owens and showing real, working hoverboards.
Had history finally been made? No, it was a prank; now Funny or Die has capped it off with another funny video. Check it out below.

Unlike so many other classics of the era, Clueless has yet to be remade, rebooted, or sequelized. But now Aussie musician Iggy Azalea has taken it upon herself to give the teen comedy a 2014 makeover, for her new music video “Fancy.”
It’s basically a three-minute recreation of Amy Heckerling‘s movie, right down to Dionne’s famous Dr. Seuss hat. Think of it as a bite-sized version of the story, for when you don’t have time to watch the whole thing. Watch it after the jump.

Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony had no shortage of A-lister attendees, but the star who really stole the show wasn’t a celebrity at all. It was Edgar Martirosyan, a delivery guy from Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizzeria in Hollywood.
While a typical trip for him might yield a few bucks’ tip, Matirosyan’s extra-special delivery to Hollywood’s richest and hungriest yielded an extra-special payoff on The Ellen Show this week. Watch him tell his amazing story and collect his four-figure tip after the jump.

Topher Grace‘s Star Wars Prequel Re-edit has become the stuff of Internet legend. Fans went crazy a few years back when news broke the That 70′s Show actor edited George Lucas‘ three Star Wars prequels into one movie. On the surface, the idea made lots of sense, but many were outraged both that Grace would attempt such a feat and that they’d never get to see it.
To hopefully appease the masses just a bit, Grace had finally released a short trailer for his 85-minute edit, called Star Wars: Episode III.5: The Editor Strikes Back. This is likely the closest anyone will get to seeing the full film. Check it out below. Read More »
As someone who grew up in the Nineties, it’s kind of hard to get my mind around Nineties nostalgia. It honestly feels like it was yesterday, even though we’re 15 plus years removed. That said, I still enjoy it and Cinefix has just created a prime example to stab me straight in the heart – a homemade Hook remake.
They got Dante Basco to reprise his role as Rufio in a short, “homemade” (basically sweded) scene from Steven Spielberg‘s Hook. It’s surreal and funny to see this exciting, emotional scene played out in a Los Angeles driveway. With Basco there to utter his classic lines, however, it’s very worth your time. Plus there’s a behind the scenes video and a side by side with Spielberg’s version. Check them out below. Read More »
Seth Rogen is already considered one of the coolest, most down to Earth actors in Hollywood. On Wednesday he got more serious. Rogen spoke to a United States Senate committee Wednesday about his experiences with Alzheimer’s Disease and the need for further research. Don’t worry, though. While it’s most certainly a serious topic and Rogen treats it as such, there’s plenty of the actor’s humor peppered throughout. This is just awesome. Check out the video below. Read More »
The Fine Brothers love to spoil everything, We’ve featured their popular videos for years now they’re nearing a deal with Nickelodeon. After seeing all of the big movies of 2013, the brothers are back once again to spoil everything. Their latest video spoils 50 movies released last year (including all best picture nominees) in one take, in under 6 minutes (they use to get in done in under four minutes, but that sweet Viacom contract seems to have slowed them down :P). Think of it as a yearly film retrospective. Watch the video now, after the jump.
And if it isn’t completely obvious already, please be warned that the following video contains spoilers.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Spike Jonze‘s fantastic films have made legions of fans. But a new video making the rounds online could give him the respect of non-fans as well. Jonze appeared via Satellite on BBC Newsnight with Emily Maitlis and had a feeling the anchor hadn’t seen his movie, Her, or at least wasn’t being honest about it. So he kept asking her what she felt about the movie, which she avoided in favor of questions about the technology. It’s super awkward and a very ballsy move by Jonze, who could have easily avoided the conflict. Taking the stance clearly throws him off. Check it out below. Read More »
