Captain America Vs. Guardian of the Galaxy!

Chris Evans is Captain America. He's a fan of the New England Patriots. Something to do with the red, white and blue, perhaps?

Chris Pratt is a Guardian of the Galaxy. He favors the Seattle Seahawks.

And for the past two weeks, the Captain and the Guardian have been at war. On Twitter, anyway.

There have been wagers about who will do what if the other's team wins. But with their last tweets, the pair upped the ante with some back and forth images.

First, this one from Chris Pratt, showing Patriots QB Tom Brady feasting on some sort of bird...
Followed by this one from Chris Evans, showing Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in a different sort of uniform... Personally, I hope the bantering goes on long after the game is done.

"Lost Dog" Overcomes Obstacles

Budweiser released their 2015 Super Bowl commercial yesterday. At this writing, "Lost Dog" has already had over 8 million views on YouTube.

The little puppy gets into a horse trailer at the Clydesdale ranch, and gets driven away.

Not to worry - he escapes in the city, and finds his way home, overcoming all obstacles.

Wait, what's that behind the tree, with his home within sight?

Is it a wolf? Uh oh...

You can watch the rest on your own...

Except for the presence of the Clydesdales and the Budweiser cap on the guy who runs the place, I'm not really sure what this has to do with beer, but that's probably not all that important...

 

And for a little extra fun, check out this short clip that shows you some behind-the-scenes footage of the puppies used in this spot.

"Get Out of Here, You Low-Life Scum"

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger arrived at a Senate hearing yesterday chaired by Senator John McCain.

As the 91-year-old Kissinger took his seat, a group of protestors rose from theirs and started chanting, "Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes."

They did it in a sort of sing-song way, but it really missed the mark.

Kissinger didn't even seem to notice. Could be years of practice, could be that he's 91.

But McCain did, and ordered the police officers in the room to remove the protestors.

And as they were led out, McCain delivered the verbal coup de gras: "Get out of here, you low-life scum."

Tell it like it is, Senator!

Ted 2 On the Way

Seth MacFarlane is back, people!

A couple of years ago, his movie about a teddy bear that came to life earned the distinction of being "the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time." That's according to comingsoon.net, and why would they lie?

On June 26, Ted 2 will hit the theaters, and the trailer for it hit the internet yesterday.

Mark Wahlberg is back as Ted's best friend, and Morgan Freeman is part of the cast.

Morgan. Freeman.

In a movie about a talking teddy bear.

Now you want to see it too, don't you?

Here's the trailer...

Will This Be Katy Perry's Halftime Song?

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took the stage during media week leading up to the Super Bowl because he was obligated to do so.

But I guess he didn't think he was obligated to say anything, because the answer to every question was a variation on "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

It was pretty funny to watch, but the NFL didn't think so. They're considering whacking him with a huge fine.

So what are they going to do to Katy Perry, the Big Game's halftime performer, who used the same line in a pre-Super Bowl interview?

Check out this mashup of Marshawn and Katy saying the same thing over and over.

If someone sets this to music, we're talking straight to the top of the charts.

Katy could sing it during halftime.

I wonder if the NFL would let Marshawn out of the locker room for a few minutes to make it a duet?

HollyWooWoo Report

HollyWooWoo Report
January 29, 2015


File this under: RIDICULOUS!!! Documentation from a London volunteer organization claims Lindsay Lohan completed 80 hours of community service in 9 days. Did she pick up trash at a park? Volunteer at a homeless shelter? Nope! She claims she 'met with fans and shook hands' and that counts as "COMMUNITY SERVICE". Prosecutors don't believe it and aren't buying it, and will investigate. She's in London. The L.A. court set another hearing Feb. 18.

Congrats to Point artists Fall Out Boy!! This is HUGE. They have scored their third Number 1 album. The group's 6th studio album is titled "American Beauty/American Psycho." Taylor Swift stays right behind, and Meghan Trainor's debut album drops to No. 3.

The Beebs is getting emotional ... do we buy it? Or is it another cry for attention? Justin Bieber is sharing a Facebook video with fans where he apologized for mistakes he has made in the past. He admitted to acting "arrogant and conceited." This all started because yesterday he taped an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show where he gave one word answers & was very rude. Producers and his management team were very dissapointed - possibly the reason for the video? Check out the video on our Facebook page!

Go Daddy or No Daddy

The folks at Go Daddy, keepers of so many web domains, usually produce an ad for the Super Bowl.

Sometimes sultry, sometimes sexy, they usually cause a bit of a stir.

This year, they decided to go with something a little more tame, sort of spoofing Budweiser's commercial last year about the lost dog.

This new Go Daddy ad featured Buddy, a golden retriever puppy who finds his way home, only to find that his owner has just sold him on a website she built with Go Daddy's help. Buddy's owner, as it turns out, is a breeder from Gabby's Goldens. At the end of the ad, Buddy's loaded into a van and driven off.

When the ad was released on Tuesday, animal rights activists were up in arms, and demanded that the ad - which they suggest was glorifying puppy mills - be pulled.

And the folks at Go Daddy agreed. Here's the ad you won't see on Sunday.

What do you think? Go Daddy? Or No Daddy?

Dungeons & Dragons... with Real People

Amanda Peet visited Conan the other night to talk about her role on the new HBO series, Togetherness.

While she was there, she chatted a little about another HBO series, one that was co-created by her husband: Game of Thrones.

And what she said almost got her booed off the show.

Must have been some severe Throniacs in the audience.

She admitted that when her husband first told her about the idea, she said it sounded terrible.

"Like Dungeons & Dragons, but real, with real people," is how she described it.

Now, she's a fan...  And not just because it's made her hubby a castleful of cash either.

Steel Boils At About This Temperature

Lots of people want to know what the weather will be like in Glendale, Arizona for the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Well just ask the folks at Fox 10 in Phoenix.

Because it is HOT!

Earlier this week, meteorologist Cory McCloskey was in the middle of a forecast when his current temperature board went a little nutty.

1270 degrees in Ahwatukee. 1350 in Surprise. All the way up to 2385 in Wickenburg.

Lesser men would have melted. Not Cory - he handled it superbly, rolling with the numbers, and delivering up some stellar improv.

Check it out!

Clearing the Finish Line

While a near-record snowfall covered the City of Boston, one man tried to stay ahead of the white stuff.

Chris Laudani, a bartender, finished his shift early on Tuesday night, grabbed a shovel and headed for Boylston Street and the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

On his own, he cleared the finish line - site of the horrific bombings - of snow.

He wasn't looking for anything.

"I only did it to send a message," he later told Boston Magazine after his identity was determined. I love the Boston Marathon and everything it stands for, the finish line doesn't deserve to be covered in snow."

So touching...
