Humor: Conan O’Brien Debuts Funny New ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro’ Segment

GoPro cameras, or rather action cameras in general, are amazing little devices that have enabled people to capture everything from the exciting to the harrowing to the downright weird.

For late night show host and comedian Conan O’Brien the answer is a definitive ‘No,’ and so he put the GoPros he supposedly got for Christmas (it feels a bit more like an advertising stunt to us) to use in the most mundane ways imaginable as part of a funny new segment called ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro.’ Read more…

Humor: What if Disney Princesses Shared Photos on Instagram?

I admit that I am an Instagram Junkie. To paraphrase that classic SNL line: “I got a fever and the only prescription is MORE INSTAGRAM.” It’s not that I really enjoy sharing images of my dog and what I had for dinner, it’s more that I love looking at the uploads of those I follow.

BforBel.com knows this and took it a step further…all the way to Disney.

What if Movies Were Written and Voiced-Over by Little Kids?

Lets say you find an imaginative kid, put a pen in one of his hands, put a camera in the other, and ask him to create a movie. What would you get?

That’s the basic idea behind Kid Snippets, a cute and hilarious new web series by BoredShortsTV. For the short above, titled “Salesman”, filmmaker Ryan Haldeman had a couple kids come up with an interaction between a salesman and a customer. He then took the resulting audio, and had actors John and Brett Roberts act it out and mouth the words. What resulted was the humorous sketch seen above.
