Lena Dunham Directed A Video For Her Boyfriend's New Band 'The Bleachers'

This might ruffle some feathers. If you don't like Lena Dunham, and don't really like fun. (Ugh, that punctuation), then you might have a hard time with this video, but rest assured, this is better than fun. That's not to say it's great, and you WILL have to look at this heavily stylized hipster nerd. The name of her boyfriend, Jack Antanoff's new band is Bleachers, and the song is "I Wanna Get Better." The video is sort of fun, and kind of obnoxious. Just like Girls, and just like phün.

HBO's 'Girls' Offers Up A 4th Season Preview That Will Make Us Fall In Hate With Lena Dunham All Over Again

This clip promises that the Girls might be less terrible, but still unhappy. After a truly bizarre Girls teaser that was meta on so many levels that I developed a minor nose bleed, we're finally getting a bona fide preview of the upcoming season 4. The clip gives a rundown of where the four girls have gone and where they'll be in the coming season, and allows us to drop in on our favorite minor characters as well. None of this is terrible thorough, I'm aware, but if you want to see what I'm talking about, just watch the damn clip. It's two minutes long. What the clip doesn't reveal is the intent behind the different tone. Is HBO shooting for more mass appeal for Girls? Is it just an organic move to happiness for the characters? We don't know, but we will soon enough. No premiere date set yet, but rest assured, it's "coming soon." (THR)


A Fun Shot-For-Shot Remake Of 'Top Gun'

Iceman was gay. There. I said it. Everyone likes Top Gun. Except the anonymous fighter pilots who flew on behalf of an indeterminate evil country, somewhere over the Indian Ocean...present day. However, Tom Cruise's couch jumping and general weirdness may have tainted one of the defining cinematic works of not only the 1980's, but maybe the entire Cold War. That's right. I'm lumping Top Gun in with The Godfather, Dr. Strangelove, and many other far better films. So, without Tom Cruise's pervasive taint, we offer the final dog fight of Top Gun, with Cruise Control intact. Oh, and it's homemade, or, as we like to call it, "artisanal."


OK Go Continues Ignore The Death Of The Music Video With Another Fun One For 'The Writing's On The Wall'

I wonder how this will do on 'TRL'. OK Go, a band that's long been known as "that band that makes the cool videos" has given us two one-take videos already, one of which involves a lot of treadmills, and the other, more desperate video, a giant Rube Goldberg machine. Here they are with "The Writing's on the Wall," featuring a billion sorta-impressive optical illusions. It's a cool video, but I think after the first video they did in this vein, we hit the point of diminishing returns. ANYWAY, out of context, it's a fun song, and a cool video, so enjoy it or they'll just start doing Imagine Dragons cover.


There's Funny Stuff In 'Horrible Bosses' Red Band

Let's hope these aren't all of the best parts. [post-album postid="214511" item="1"]The original trailer for Horrible Bosses didn't really grab my attention. Typically, I need to be strongly cursed at or shown boobies to react. Suffice it to say that this new red band trailer for Horrible Bosses had my full attention. Here we see that this movie really has some bite and raunchy set-ups. It looks pretty funny, though we're worried that it gives away too many of the film's jokes and not enough of Jennifer Aniston walking around naked. More of that please. Poor Charlie Day. Always having to have sex with and be fondled by his hot, rich boss. Don't get any ideas, Longshanks.


This Interactive Jack White Video For 'That Black Bat Licorice' Is Pretty Damn Fun

In the vein of Arcade Fire and Bob Dylan... Without getting too in-depth here (just watch the video), the new Jack White video for "That Black Bat Licorice" is essentially three music videos in one, and by hitting "B" or "3" at any point. It's not revolutionary, but it's pretty damn fun. Also, there aren't a lot of artists that one could consider "popular" these days, especially in rock, so it's nice to see Jack White doing his thing here. My prefernce is the "B" video, but your mileage may vary. (Vulture)


In This 'Pound Of Flesh' Clip, JCVD Tracks Down The People Who Stole His Organs

An organ-less Jean-Claude Van Damme taking to the streets is terrifying. Do you like Jean-Claude Van Damme? Nevermind. Just keep reading regardless of how you would have answered this. He's stepping out in a new, slightly less self-aware film called Pound of Flesh, in which the Belgian action star wakes up in the familiar tub full of ice, only to discover his kidney has been jacked. There's a wrinkle to this otherwise run-of-the-mill organ theft story: HIS DYING NIECE NEEDS THAT KIDNEY! They pissed off the wrong aging Belgian action star this time. Maybe he could just go down this route: (THR)


Get Charmed To Death By Chris Pratt In Seven Minutes Of 'SNL' Promos

Macklin, you son of a bitch. In case you didn't know that Chris Pratt is an awesome, funny, and delightful person...HE IS. And rather than go through the many, many examples supporting this thesis, you can just watch this extended video of all the SNL promos Chris Pratt did for his upcoming hosting of the show's 40th season premiere. He's just about the most natural person in front of the camera. The comedy that most actors strive for, as well as their work to portray a level of comfort while being filmed. Ole' Pratty's got that in spades. I mean, who else can make seven minutes of video and have all of it be charming. It's a gift. A gift from him to us. WE LOVE YOU, STARLORD!
