So the Weather Channel is understandably pumped about Tornado Week — a week of everything tornados for the channel and their website. We get it, it's like Shark Week but for weather! LOLz!
Well, to celebrate and promote it, some evil genius came up with a fantastic idea: they're recreating a Twitter powered Tornado in their office, claiming the interns were so excited that they HAD to do it… and sat them right in the middle of the wind blasts!
The best part? YOU are in control of the wind! Every public mention of #TornadoWeek on Twitter raises the scale and boosts the winds and you can tweet at the interns by sending messages to @TornadoWeek as they try and survive! If they hit 1,000,000 mentions… well, let's just say that they'll start a full blown EF-5 tornado inside the Weather Channel offices!
BEST IDEA EVER!!
Watch the live feed (above) and go nuts on Twitter to see it all happen in real time!! HA!!
In your WTF moment of the day, we'd like to let you in on a little secret: Jason Collins, who made history yesterday by becoming the first openly gay active player in the NBA and major professional U.S. sport, use to play high school basketball with the guy who tried really hard to forget Sarah Marshall…
Now THIS is how you celebrate your 80th birthday!!
Willie Nelson is both a music and a pot legend around the globe, and he's notorious for his laid back attitude and amazing sense of humor. So when Conan O'Brien asked him to audition for the upcoming Hobbit sequel, there was no way he wasn't going to!
AND WE HAVE THE AUDITION TAPE (above)!
Of course, he's trying for the role of Gandalf, which is perfect, because Willie also thinks Balrogs are a**holes! LOLz!
Ian McKellen (Gandalf himself) doesn't agree, though, with the possible casting — but it's only because Willie is too young for the role! Here's what he said:
Dear Willie, You are far too young to play Gandy.But nice try; have a stoner of a birthday. Love and admiration. Ian
Check out the flawless audition! (This is fake, in case you were flabbergasted as to why Willie didn't get the role.)
It's pretty impressive that Colin Firth chose a role involving a sport he knew NOTHING about!
That's right! Even though he had no idea how to play golf and quickly found out that golf what's the sport for him, he delivered his performance anyway! We bet his awkwardness with it doesn't even shine through, though! THAT's a professional actor!
If Samuel L. Jackson wanted to kill you with a golf swing, he would! Sam doesn't 'almost' do ANYTHING!!
Sam was at the famous St. Andrews golf course in Scotland, playing in a celebrity tournament when he allegedly (remember, he doesn't 'almost' do anything!) shanked a ball so hard into the crowd that some say he nearly killed someone!
Okay fine, when we say 'some say' we actually mean Sam himself. Here's what he said:
