Steven Yeun contemplating Fan assisted suicide. One of many instances that had me gasping for air.

Anyone who needs a laugh (and especially those who don’t) need to stop what your doing, take a break and watch this amusing, humorous video series.  Though each lasts episode lasts about 7 minutes, give yourself 25 because like Pringles, once you start the fun won’t stop!

Video Variety – Alex Sings Oasis and I Dream of an Island…

Heyo! So for all two of you who read/watched any of these VV posts, this will probably be my last weekly edition of Video Variety until I find more random Korean affiliated pop-culture videos. Anyone can still look back at the archives to remember the day Anna Kendrick became a K-pop star, G-Dragon evoked Gil Rae Im, Mad-Tv took on K-Dramas, and Jung Ryeo Won interviewed Britney Spears. Ahh memories.

Fear not though as today we have a trifecta of cultural mash-ups coming your way, where a Canadian-Korean with the statistically proven best name ever, sings a cover from one the most influential Brit/alt bands of the 90’s, my dear Oasis.

After their sudden psychic link-up, the eight (each located in different countries) are able to see and talk to each other with their minds. As they try to figure out how and why the event happened, a “mysterious” man tries to bring the group together, while another — the intriguingly named “Mr. Whispers,” seeks to kill them.” (Source Pajiba) Continue reading
