Throw some logs on the fire, pour some eggnog and turn up the… dubstep? For the second year in a row, an Idaho family has gone all-out Griswold-level with their Christmas lights—with one minor tweak.
The Cadger family set their epic 30,000 light show to Skrillex’s “Bangarang” and “Cinema.” And believe it or not, the odd pairing actually works. Proof? The video was uploaded to YouTube two weeks ago and it has already been viewed over a million times.
Watch the video here–skip to 1:50 to see things really get crazy.
It’s that time of year again. You know, that time of year when your mom keeps asking when you’re coming home, who you’re bringing with you, how long you’re staying. Yes kids, it’s the holidays.
But be honest: the last thing you want to do during your holiday vacation is sit around the house with your mom… or worse, around a dinner table with your weird uncle who only talks about engineering and your senile grandmother who wants to know why you’re not married yet. You’d rather be curled up in your own bed, in your own house doing absolutely nothing.
Luckily, United Airlines gets it. And that’s exactly why they created the Reluctant Traveler Service.
For a nominal fee, United will book you a pretend flight with an actual (made-up) flight number, gate number, and arrival time to tell your family.
At the last minute, though, your flight will be cancelled and you’ll just have to tell your family to have fun without you.
P.S. Thanks, Dave for helping us out!
And ditto to his Christmas lights, too.
Baby Oompa Loompa costume = all kinds of awesome!
Halloween 2012? Check.
Bet you didn’t even know there was such a thing. But yes, today is the day when we stand in solidarity with our sugar-deprived brothers and sisters. Imagine a life lived without pixy stix or honey buns. Imagine risking diabetic shock every time you indulged in a simple, refreshing glass of Kool-Aid. Terrifying, I know.
But this is what diabetics deal with every day, so take some time out today to think about what life would be like if you weren’t able to indulge in that delicious piece of chocolate cake or savor the slow burn of an ice cold Coca-Cola. Diabetics have it hard and, yeah, give the ones in your life a hug today or something.
Phew! Just when I losing hope in womankind for wanting to dress like Casey Anthony for Halloween, turns out most of us broads really want to dress like the Svedka fembot.
Oh yes, that Svedka Vodka Halloween costume that JWoww is wearing in the pic above is already sold out at rickyshalloween.com.
But don’t lose hope–your dreams of dressing in a skintight Spandex catsuit may still come true. Just head to your local Ricky’s Halloween costume shop and they may still have the Svedka Fembot Halloween costume in stock.
Ah, Etsy, home of vintage hoop skirts, gorgeous illustrations, lampshades hot glued with Legos, and now, exorbitantly expensive Halloween costumes.
But let’s be real: isn’t any price worth it to not show up to the company Halloween party as the 47th zombie? Start skipping lunch because you’re going to need that cash for one of these surprisingly pricey Etsy Halloween costumes.
