The latest installment of the incredible web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is anything but a plain ol’ episode. In fact, if you only pay attention to the first bit of it you’ll miss out on a new music video by The Lonely Island which is about Spring Break and men marrying each other called, “Spring Break Anthem.” As if you need any more incentive, there’s also cameos from James Franco and Ed Norton and topless women in bikinis. It works people. It also gives us a good indication of how the trio is going to launch videos post SNL.
This will more than likely going to break the Internet today, you’ve been warned.

Comedian James Adomian is a chameleon of sorts. Not only is he hilarious in his own right but he also has a bit of a penchant for imitation- whether that be Huell Howser, Jesse Ventura or when we saw him at SXSW, Louis C.K. tucking Marc Maron into bed at night.
Seems that IFC.com and Funny Or Die are taking advantage of Adomian’s Maron impression to put together a web series, “Maron in Space.” The series portrays, comedian and podcaster, Marc Maron in space. Crazy, huh? Adomian plays Marc Maron, the captain of the Starship Maroner. Captain Maron finds himself in space mapping uncharted planets, commanding his crew (partly made of cats), and fends off an evil enemy ship known as “The Hive.” A special guest will be playing the commander of “The Hive”, a guest that WTF Podcast fans will want to see. This hilarious five-part web series is now available on IFC.com and Funny Or Die and leads up to the debut of Maron, premiering Friday, May 3rd at 10pm ET. Read More
Though the trailer’s been floating around the internet for a few months how last night Funny Or Die’s full length biopic spoof of the life of the late Steve Jobs.
It stars former Apple pitchman Justin Long. While we all don’t have 78 minutes to watch the whole thing, you should know that Jorge Garcis (Lost) plays Steve Wozniak Jobs gets acid from a Tibetan monk, and learns about the importance of fonts within the first 5 minutes of the clip. It also turns out that acid trips look a lot like iPod silhouette commercials. Head on over here and watch.
We love the Internet. But on days like today, April Fools Day it provides it’s own set of rules. Mainly because everyone is out to trick you with a false story, joke, or prank. Here are some of our favorites we’ve encountered today. Read More
With all the buzz about gun control going around, Jim Carrey decided to throw his hat into the ring. Carrey, who has been known to take a stand against gun advocates, has certainly turned up the volume on his stance. Carrey tweeted yesterday “’Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf&ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids. Sorry if you’re offended…” A much stronger voice than many expected from the loveable Carrey. Cold Dead Hand is a satire in which Carrey plays a Heston-esque gun advocate, as well as an anti-gun singer (with a backing band of historically peaceful leaders men who were assassinated) who questions the manhood of gun owners. It’s meant to be a funny video, and it is, but it also speaks for Carrey’s beliefs. After watching the video, some will laugh, others will be pissed. What do you think; is Carrey being creative and expressive or did he just add fuel to the fire?
