Throwback Thursdays! “Cupid’s Chokehold” by Gym Class Heroes

Can you believe this song is 11 years old? Oh yeah. I heard Cupid’s Chokehold the other day and thought, this song has gotta be coming up on 10 years old, when that happens I can do a Throwback Thursday on it, but that’s probably a few years away . Boy was I wrong! I sure got egg on my face, although that is due to an unrelated breakfast incident. Anywho, this song was pretty big back in 2005 and why wouldn’t it be? You had Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy (one of the hottest bands at the time) singing the hook from Supertramp’s hit song “Breakfast in America” along with Travis McCoy’s sultry rap lyrics. Throw in a cameo by a then unknown Katy Perry (she was McCoy’s girlfriend at the time) and you got yourself a recipe for success! Enjoy!

Before They Were Famous: Halloween Edition!

Thanks to the awesomeness of Screen Junkies we have a video to post on the eve of Halloween that is actually Halloween themed! Hooray! So sit back and enjoy this video of actors before they were famous in spooky and scary Halloween movies! Oh and if someone gives you a razor blade in an apple this Halloween, just pretend to eat it so you don’t hurt their feelings . They worked really hard to attempt to murder you and I think the devastation of failing at taking someone’s life could send them into a pretty depressing spiral. Attempted murderers have feelings too people! Enjoy the video and Happy Halloween!

Before They Were Famous: Leslie Mann Coke Commercial

While this is apparently “Not Final Version”, it is what I remember watching on TV as a kid. Coca-Cola has always been known for its amazing adverts and marketing campaigns and it seems they hit the nail on the head with this one. The commercial features a then unknown Leslie Mann and King Kong (who likely hadn’t worked since the 80s and just figured a job is a job). Both careers would remain obscure until the mid 2000s when King Kong married Judd Apatow and went on to star in movies such as The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up while Leslie Mann would star in Peter Jackson’s mega-hit King Kong…Hmm, I might have that backwards…No, I think I’m right. Enjoy the commercial
