Fat Man Walking in NYC Is Supposed to Be Funny, But It's Kind of Sad

Fat Man Walking in NYC Is Supposed to Be Funny, But It's Kind of Sad

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably seen or heard about a social experiment where a girl walks around New York City as we, the viewers, hear the constant catcalls and see the unwanted attention from the men she encounters on her walk. A few were quick to jump on the parody bandwagon. Funny or Die came out with their simultaneously ridiculous and hilarious male version of said "social experiment" that was very obviously staged. TwoMan Tango came up with this version, where they had a "fat man" walk around NYC for 10 hours. While the comedic value is not lost, it also sheds light on the unfortunate obesity problem in this country. It's all fun and games until you can't make it up a flight of stairs.  View Now

'Be Humble, Sit Down' Justin Bieber Stop Trying To Cover Songs

Justin Bieber is getting a lot of attention for his interesting choices of song covers lately.

The Spanish song proved to be too challenging for Beiber who clearly isn't fluent. The singer just started saying, "Blah, Blah, Blah" to the beat.  View Now
