Watch Brian Williams ‘Rap’ Snoop Dogg’s ‘Who Am I (What’s My Name)?’

Thanks to some expert video editing of anchor Brian Williams’s newscasts on NBC Nightly News, The Tonight Show made it look like the newsman was rapping Snoop Dogg’s “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” on Tuesday night’s episode.

In the past, the anchor has “rapped” at least a couple of other Snoop Dogg jams, including “Gin and Juice” and “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” (featuring Dr. Dre). Other clips in this running gag show him belting out Warren G’s “Regulate,” Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” and Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.”

See the Moment When a Groundhog Bit a Mayor’s Ear

He is really not interested in predicting your weather

On a nippy Groundhog Day in Sun Prairie, Wis., a groundhog nipped the city’s mayor on the ear.

Per tradition, Jimmy the Groundhog had “whispered” his prognostication of an early spring into Mayor Jonathan Freund’s ear and “leaned into the Mayor’s ear to make sure the Mayor heard him correctly,” according to a statement. WISC-TV News 3 posted video of the incident.

“Let’s just say that Jimmy will always have my ear,” Freund wrote on Facebook.

No word on whether, after the incident, he will experience six more weeks of pain.

British Journalist Tom Bradby Is Loving All of Your Tom Brady Tweets

Tom Bradby is not Tom Brady. During the Super Bowl Sunday night — and all throughout Monday — Bradby, a political editor at ITV News, has been mentioned in numerous tweets meant for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was crowned the Most Valuable Player of the game.

Most of the tweets from users, who appear to be angry about a first-quarter interception, aren’t exactly safe for work, but here are some tame ones:

As the game progressed, tweets became more complimentary:

Bradby responded to users who tweeted NSFW comments and had some fun with the whole mixup:

And in case you thought the surprise could not get more perfect, he says the couple will spend week two wherever she wants to go in Europe.

From wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow to "Flamin' Hot" Cheetos

An interception in the final seconds of the Super Bowl may have won the championship for the Patriots, but Katy Perry’s halftime performance won the Internet. In addition to trying to identify the dancing shark on Reddit, people were fired up about the flame-patterned outfit she wore while parading into the show atop a mechanical tiger (cue the obvious puns about how she’s a “girl on fire”). Here are all of the people and things she looked like, according to Twitter:

50% of Pennsylvanians Would Rather Be Represented by a Groundhog in Congress

Punxsutawney Phil Makes Annual Forecast On Groundhog Day
Jeff Swensen—Getty ImagesReady to lead?

Just in time for Groundhog Day on Feb. 2, Public Policy Polling (PPP) revealed 50% of Pennsylvanians think the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil “would do a better job than most current members of Congress.” Twenty-nine percent said he would not, and 21% were “not sure.”

Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling, said in a statement, “Americans have so little faith in Congress these days they’d rather be represented by a groundhog.”

The data suggests the rodent should get a new job, considering only 8% thought the animal seeing his shadow was a reliable indicator of how long winter would last.

The pollsters surveyed 1,042 registered voters in Pennsylvania between Jan.15 and 18. The margin of error for this poll is ± 3%.

Past entertaining PPP polls have showed Americans favor Ronald McDonald for president over Burger King, and that Republicans prefer olives as a pizza topping twice as much as Democrats.

This Hilarious Video Calls Out Everyone Who Spends Too Much Time Texting at the Gym

These personal trainers know how to take the best photo of the best you

Ever feel like 20-somethings spend more time talking about being at the gym than actually breaking a sweat? Or if they break a sweat, maybe it is because a text message is taking too long to type out, or worse, they sent something to the wrong person.

Such is the inspiration for the hottest gym in town, “#@THEGYM,” a fake promotional video for a fitness center that caters to millennials who won’t put down their phones to lift a dumbbell. Features include “wall to wall mirrors so you can snap the best selfie,” a staff “with accredited personal trainers who know how to get the best shot of the best you” and an Apple Genius Bar, among other hilarious amenities.

As the narrator of the parody puts it, “Come for the workout, stay for the WiFi.”

This Ad Perfectly Parodies the ‘Mommy Wars’

"Drug-free pool birth. Dolphin assisted."

A recent ad for baby formula brand Similac pokes fun at various parenting styles.

As a woman is sitting on a park bench cradling her baby, several different posses of moms and dads representing different outlooks on child-rearing converge. Working women in black suits use one arm to talk on their cell phones and the other arm to carry their babies, while “hippies,” wearing their babies in slings, strike a warrior pose on yoga mats. Watch five fathers square off with some sassy breast-feeding mothers, and the funniest part of all is when a mom brags about her “drug-free pool birth. Dolphin assisted.”

Watch This Mascot Bring It With an ‘Uptown Funk’ Dance

The Mark Ronson song is rapidly becoming the "Happy" of 2015

During a recent halftime performance, the Atlanta Hawks mascot Harry the Hawk and a couple of back-up dancers had the crowd on their feet with a lip-sync performance of “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson, featuring Bruno Mars.

As sports writers have been pointing out, the upbeat routine jibes perfectly with the NBA team’s 17-game winning streak in the Eastern conference. The team has even changed its name on Twitter to “aWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWks,” adding a “W” for each win.

Justin Bieber Is Very Sorry for Being the Absolute Worst

The pop singer wants you to know how much he cares. Aww!

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber apologized for his erratic, immature behavior in a Facebook video Wednesday.

The singer, who recently posed in his underwear for a widely-mocked ad for Calvin Klein, said he was nervous about what people think of him during a recent taping of an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited, basically how I’ve been acting the past year, year and a half,” he said. “I’m not who I was pretending to be.”

Examples of the behavior he is talking about: making disrespectful comments at a Tokyo shrine and the Anne Frank museum, fighting with paparazzi and getting arrested for a DUI while driving a yellow Lamborghini. Oh, and that time he abandoned a pet monkey at a German airport.
