Now You Can Make Your House Smell Like Thin Mints With These Girl Scout Cookie Candles

Yankee Candle

Also available in Trefoil, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Coconut Caramel Stripe variety

It’s officially Girl Scout Cookie season, which is great, but it’s also a reminder that these treats are a seasonal item one cannot purchase year-round. (Although one could, in theory, buy them in bulk and freeze them to have them for the rest of the year, if one really wanted to.)

The good news is that you can now purchase candles that smell like your favorite Girl Scout Cookie flavors to keep the essence of Girl Scout Cookies going all year long. Yankee Candle has launched a new collection featuring four scents: Thin Mints, Trefoils, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Coconut Caramel Stripes.

All varieties are available as a large jar candle, a small tumbler candle or a car air freshener, so you can make your vehicle smell delicious too.

Watch Victoria’s Secret Angels Play Football (In Actual Football Attire)

In a promo for its upcoming Super Bowl ad, the lingerie company shows models wearing real clothing

During this year’s Super Bowl, viewers will see a Victoria’s Secret commercial for the first time since 2008. The above video — which features models playing football — is not the official ad, the company says, but rather a teaser to get us all pumped up about the ad.

The video stars Adriana Lima along with four other Victoria’s Secret Angels playing a legit game of football. And they’re not even playing in lingerie and impractical silky robes. They’re playing in real, bona fide football attire. At the end, they remove their helmets and shake out their hair and walk seductively toward the camera, but still.

Cool, so now that everyone is all pumped: the brand’s official TV commercial will air during the game’s fourth quarter, so be ready.

These Incredibly Realistic Celebrity Portraits Were Made Entirely With Emoji

See Kim Kardashian made of pigs and hamburgers and Miley Cyrus made of basketballs and cookies

Most Emoji enthusiasts would agree that selecting the right one is an art form — and rapper Yung Jake is truly taking that idea to the next level.

Using a new site called emoji.ink, he’s been creating impressively lifelike portraits of celebrities ranging from comedy icons like Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld to rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Cam’ron. It may sound like a silly gimmick — but these portraits actually incorporate a striking attention to detail and a clear sense of creativity.

Naturally, when we reached out to Yung Jake for more information about his artistic process, his response was riddled with Emoji:

Watch Blake Shelton Squirm as Jimmy Fallon Serenades Him With Country Songs

Fallon attempts to sing some of Shelton's biggest hits

Upcoming Saturday Night Live host and The Voice coach Blake Shelton stopped by The Tonight Show Thursday — and his visit turned into a bit of a concert. But the person singing was not, in fact, Blake Shelton, but instead Jimmy Fallon, who attempted to sing some of Shelton’s hits.

Watch as Fallon totally butchers “Neon Light” and “Boys ‘Round Here,” with accompaniment from house band The Roots.

After Fallon attempted to impress Shelton by essentially ruining his songs, Shelton looks into Fallon’s eyes, smiles his charming Blake Shelton smile, and drawls, “I seriously can’t stand you.”

Jeopardy! Contestant Can’t Stop Apologizing for Mixing Up Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks

He joined Twitter solely for this purpose

“This Australian hip-hopper used the pet name/street name system to come up with her rap name,” host Alex Trebek said on a recent episode of Jeopardy!

Contestant Nicholas Berube quickly buzzed in, offering the response, “Who is Azealia Banks?” He was, of course, wrong. What he meant to say was, “Who is Iggy Azalea?” It was an innocent mistake, as they are both “hip-hoppers” with similar names, but it’s kinda funny because the two rappers openly hate each other.

Berube clearly felt pretty bad about the mixup because he joined Twitter solely to apologize. First to Azealia Banks:

And then just more generally to the whole Internet:

After making the mistake while taping the show, Berube said he “immediately knew the internet would explode,” but couldn’t defend himself until the episode aired months later.

He seems like a really nice guy, doesn’t he? But sorry, ladies, he’s made sure to let everybody know he’s off the market:

Watch Bill Gates and Jimmy Fallon Hang Out and Drink Poop Water Together

NBC host took a taste test

Bill Gates stopped by The Tonight Show Wednesday evening to talk about the Omniprocessor, a machine that aims to help sanitation issues in third world countries by turning human waste into drinking water — as well as electricity and clean ash.

Gates recently promoted the machine, which his foundation has helped fund, and shared a video of himself testing the water on his blog.

So naturally, the billionaire philanthropist decided to trick Fallon into tasting some of this “poop water” too. He sets up a taste test with two seemingly identical glasses of water and then invites Fallon to choose whichever one he wants. And then things get interesting.

This Hilarious Parody Ad Imagines What Facebook Would Be Like in 1995

It's a weirdly accurate spoof of an actual AOL commercial

Take a quick trip down memory lane, back to the days of the mid-90s Internet era, with this fake commercial that imagines how Facebook would have been marketed in 1995.

As you might remember from watching The Social Network, the site was originally called The Facebook, until Napster cofounder Sean Parker (played by Justin Timberlake, you go Justin Timberlake) told Mark Zuckerberg to drop the “The” and just call it “Facebook” because it would be cleaner. Well, in 1995, we’d definitely still be calling it The Facebook.

If the video seems at all familiar, that’s because it’s a direct parody of a real AOL commercial from 1995:

Watch Lauren Graham Explain How She Found Out Gilmore Girls Was Cancelled

Eight years later, the actress reflects on the upsetting and abrupt news

On Jan. 29, Parenthood will come to a close after six heartfelt seasons. Lauren Graham, who stars as single mom Sarah Braverman, is of course emotional about the show’s ending — but she’s at least had a chance to say a proper goodbye, because the cast and crew knew in advance the sixth season would be the last.

And as Graham explained to Seth Meyers on Monday’s episode of Late Night, she wasn’t so lucky with her previous show, Gilmore Girls.

“It’s really difficult but also really nice to be able to say goodbye,” Graham said about shooting the final scenes of Parenthood. “I’ve mainly been on shows where they just yank it and you find out later.”

Watch above as she reflects on the exact moment when she learned the beloved Gilmore Girls was no more.

Looks like the always-stylish First Lady is now taking fashion cues from Julianna Margulies

We already knew the Obamas watch Parks and Recreation and House of Cards, and now we’re wondering if they also tune in to The Good Wife.

At Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Michelle Obama sported a smart black and white Michael Kors suit. A few viewers began to realize it looked familiar — because it appeared to be the same exact suit once worn by Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies) on a past season of CBS’s legal drama The Good Wife.


The initial observers began spreading buzz on social media and people got pretty excited about the connection. Some even worked in Mean Girls references:

Now we’re just wondering if the First Lady’s next look will be inspired by Leslie Knope.

Watch a Reporter Giggle Uncontrollably On Air and Try Desperately to Pull Himself Together

Also, his name is Chris Brown

It’s easy to make fun of TV reporters for bloopers and mishaps, but let’s all admit that it takes an impressive amount of composure and poise to do what they do each day. Sometimes, though, they lose that composure and poise and it’s great and we should just allow ourselves to be entertained.

In this segment from WWAY in Wilmington, N.C., anchor Daniel Seamans apologizes and explains that the crew’s got “the tickle bug,” which we assume is a folksy way of saying “we can’t stop laughing about something stupid that happened moments before we went live.” His co-anchor Makenzi Henderson then introduces the segment, explaining that charter boate are angry about proposed restrictions on fishing expeditions or something like that.

Then anchor Chris Brown takes it away, but apparently talking about chart boats is just too hilarious for him and he just can’t get through it. He keeps giggling and snorting, briefly composing himself, and then breaking down again. It’s great and we can totally relate.
