Farty Anaconda

Nicki Minaj’s famous booty twerks centre stage in the (NSFW) music video to Anaconda. That thing is so big it needs its own postal code.

Two of Nicki’s biggest South African fans have decided to pay tribute in their own special way. From the same people who brought you Hipsters and Hastags and the Payday Song, come a remix of Anaconda that’s certainly a roar from the rear.

Digging in the Deep

The world seems to love Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”. It has been covered hundreds and thousands of times on YouTube, and Luc Bergeron even created a music video for the song containing clips of other YouTube users singing it. It’s still surprisingly good.

The animal world is getting in on the act too. In this spoof by The Pet Collective, Pete “Pawdele” feels similarly scorned as his owner steps out the house with her male friend. Check out Digging in the Deep below.

The Simpsons’ “Game of Thrones” Intro

Winter is coming. Literally. It’s getting a tad colder in the southern hemisphere as citizens prepare for the biting cold that is on the way. They’re also waiting for the second season of Game of Thrones to begin, and in tribute to the medieval show, The Simpsons transform their town of Springfield into Westeros, complete with a despotic king as he watches over the kingdom from Burns Landing. Check out The Simpsons’ “Game of Thrones” couch gag below.

By the Light of Mother Mustang! It’s the Space Stallions!

If you’re a fan of space westerns like Saber Rider, Bravestarr, and SilverHawks, I think that you’ll appreciate the cheesiness that is Space Stallions.

As a homage to their favourite cartoons from the 80s, The Animation Workshop from Denmark tells the story of Sun Ray and his fellow Space Stallions as they battle the demon of darkness, Destructo. Behold the horsepower, keytars, and cheesy 80s beats!

The Lion King Rises

This is brilliant! YouTube user moviemaestroten took the audio track from the latest trailer to Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises and skillfully matched it to scenes from the 1994 animated adventure, The Lion King. The results are amusing to say the least, and Scar makes for a wondefully incomprehensible villain. Check out The Lion King Rises.

The Dark Knight Rises releases on July 27th in South Africa. The Lion King, now 18 years old, was re-released in 3D in September 2011, and earned a whopping USD 30.2 million in its opening weekend!

Your Mom Makes Dubstep

This is the funniest thing I’ve heard in ages. Disappointed at the state of dubstep in the world, DJ Logam from interdimensional recording label Betamorph Recordings has shown how simple it has become to create a dubstep track, so much so that even your mom could do it.

You can download the track from here. Logam has also created a competition asking for remixes to Your Mom Makes Dubstep. Have a listen to those mixes, also on Soundcloud.

Tobias Funke’s “I Just Blue Myself” Ice Cream

Arrested Development was cancelled way before its time. Since the season finale in 2006, fans of the incredibly funny witty TV series have been praying for its return. At the recent New Yorker Festival, audiences broke out into rapturous applause when the series creator Mitch Hurwitz announced that the show (and movie!) would return to TV screens in 2013.

Overcome with happiness, illustrator Jon Defreest decided to pay homage to the show and a very special member of the Bluth family by creating a flavour of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Called I Just Blue Myself, the flavour celebrates the questionable sexuality of the family’s analyst and therapist (shortened to analrapist), Tobias F√ľnke.

Defreest has whipped up more ice cream flavours based on pop culture characters including Dexter, Ron Swanson, and The Dude. Have a look at those after the jump.
