Dr. Phil Without Dialogue Is Extra Dramatic

His looks say it all

If a picture says a thousand words, then one of Dr. Phil’s trademark real-talk looks says a million.

A new YouTube video posted by Bill Smith has removed all of the dialogue from an episode of Dr. Phil, yet somehow the high drama remains. The lack of context as the famed TV counselor helps a family navigate the turbulent emotions that came from their honor roll student daughter dating a controlling bad boy who got her pregnant makes the face-off seem even more tense.

Every shake of a head, every dead-eyed stare, every pursed lip and slow nod telegraphed many emotions. By the end of the video it seems clear that they accomplished a lot, even without uttering a single sound.

The Only Thing That Makes Fifty Shades of Grey Sexier Is Steve Buscemi

Buscemi dominates the new trailer

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has a few things going for him — smoldering eyes, chiseled jaw, sizzling intensity and the ability to speak in a flawless Scottish accent. It’s easy to believe author E.L. James had someone similar in mind for the character of Christian Grey while she wrote the novel that became a global phenomenon. The only person who could, ahem, dominate Dornan as the buttoned-up business man with singular tastes is, of course, Steve Buscemi.

Luckily Internet heroes BooYa Pictures have taken it upon themselves to improve the original Fifty Shades movie trailer by replacing Dornan with the Boardwalk Empire star. In the vastly superior clip, perky college grad Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) comes to interview the CEO of Grey Enterprises and can’t help but fall in lust with the man behind the desk, who now played by Buscemi. Can you blame her?

Watch Louis C.K. Take On Babies and Gay Marriage in His New Stand-Up Special

The comedian has a few thoughts about babies.

Louis C.K.’s new stand-up special isn’t available yet, but you can watch the first four minutes of “Live at the Comedy Store” now.

The four-minute clip revolves around everyone’s favorite airplane companions: babies. After a recent travel experience, C.K. finally figured out why so many babies spend their time on airplanes crying. The cause? According to C.K., “they are upset because gay people are getting married.”

To be clear, C.K. doesn’t agree with their temper tantrums, because love is love and babies are selfish. “I think if people are in love, they should get married,” he clarified. “But they can’t accept that. They’re just being babies.”

As he has done for the past few years, the comedian is making his latest comedy hour available to stream and/or download on his website for just $5.

Watch Rowlf Sing Biz Markie’s ‘Just A Friend’ to Miss Piggy

Even Muppet dogs get put in the friend zone.

Have you ever met a girl that you tried to date, but she was smitten with your little green friend Kermit? Welcome to the friend zone, Rowlf.

Biz Markie’s 1989 riotous rap classic “Just A Friend” gets a Muppet-themed remix video by Mylo the Cat and it’s the perfect thing to watch on a Monday afternoon (or if you’re snowed in thanks to winter storm Juno).

In the video, Rowlf, the piano-playing Muppet dog, sings about his love for a certain blonde pig, who has a thing for a frog, but swears he’s just a friend.

By the end of the song, though, it’s clear that Rowlf tragically learned his lesson to never talk to a pig who says she just has “a friend.”

Go Nuts With These 7 Cute Videos for Squirrel Appreciation Day

Squirrel mania

One of life’s greatest ironies is that Squirrel Appreciation Day comes in the dead of winter when many squirrels are hibernating, which makes them harder to appreciate (but easier to juggle). Luckily we live in the age of the Internet and we can appreciate their adorable antics any time we want.

In honor of Squirrel Appreciation Day and the world’s fuzzy, nut-loving little friends, here are some of the funniest squirrel videos around:

While human children think merry-go-rounds are a blast, this squirrel has given up on his dream of resuming his normal life:

This squirrel is doing an impression of anyone who made the grave error of signing up for a pole dancing class:

This squirrel is either having a blast—or regretting ever decision it’s ever made to get to this point in its life:

Here’s a flying squirrel who mistook a bird feeder for an all-you-can-eat Sizzler buffet:

This squirrel ate some fermented pumpkins, which is basically a squirrel kegger:

Here’s a water-skiing squirrel, who has more skills than animals with opposable thumbs:

It’s hard to say who is more confused in this video—the Bernese Mountain dog or the squirrel trying to bury his nut in the dog’s fur:

This Rat Hates Broccoli More Than You Do

Broccoli is for the birds

Dexter the rat hates broccoli.

In this video making the rounds of the web, the furry little rodent makes his opinion about the dreaded green stuff abundantly clear—not only does he not want to eat it, he doesn’t even want to be in the same room as it. The only way Dexter’s rejection of the little cruciferous could be more adorable is if he had a French bulldog puppy to pass it off to.

Perhaps his owner should point out that eating more vegetables can increase your longevity, that broccoli sprouts can help with autism, broccoli can ease arthritis, and that it is very high in calcium? Or maybe they should try a different cooking technique altogether to convince the little guy that broccoli is a delicious snack. Cheese, perhaps?

Don’t tell his starving subway rat brethren, because they probably aren’t too good for free food—even if it is broccoli.

Twin Brothers Film Themselves Coming Out to Their Dad in Emotional Video

The rising YouTube stars didn't want him to find out the news from their videos

Twin brothers Aaron and Austin Rhodes had come out to everyone in their family except for their father. But as rising YouTube stars, known as the Rhodes Bros, they decided they needed to tell him before he learned the news from their videos.

As the camera is rolling, they are both so nervous (“I think I’m going to pass out,” said one), crying a little bit as they struggle to get the words out.

“I just don’t want you to not love us anymore,”Austin says.

But the father reassures them that he will still be there for them. “Oh stop it,” he says, “It’s the way things are. You know I love you both. That will never change. You have to live your lives.”

Watch Chris Hemsworth and Jimmy Fallon Essentially Have a Wet T-Shirt Contest

Hemsworth may have lost, but we all won.

Chris Hemsworth is a good sport. When the Blackhat actor stopped by The Tonight Show, Fallon challenged him to a card game called “Water War” and Hemsworth didn’t even blink when Fallon explained the premise: “We’ll play the card game war, but if you lose the hand, you get a pint of water in the face. The first to throw five glasses of water on their opponent wins, and gets to water cannon the loser.”

Hemsworth gamely went with it, playing cards and throwing water at Fallon’s face. But then Hemsworth’s luck went south (clearly, Loki is to blame) and he lost three hands in row and Fallon dumped an entire pint of water into his lap. At that point, Hemsworth accepted Fallon’s invitation to swap decks of cards. The result? Thor lost the next round, too. That’s when Fallon hosed him down with a water cannon resulting in a wet shirt contest that could double as a Magic Mike III audition tape.

While Hemsworth claims that he won their last game, the truth is that when these two face-off, there are no losers.

Watch What Happens When a Little Girl Challenges Gaston to an Arm-Wrestling Contest at Disney World

It's over the top!

Gaston is quickly becoming the biggest viral attraction at Walt Disney World’s Fantasyland in Florida.

Not only did the big-haired, big-talking character get his comeuppance from a sassy little girl who refused to stand idly by as he delivered his sexist drivel, but also he recently bested a foolhardy challenger at a push-up contest.

Now, YouTube user Peyton Kays has uploaded a video going viral that shows his brave 11-year-old sister challenging the heavily-muscled man to an arm-wrestling contest. Gaston thinks she doesn’t stand a chance, but within seconds, he is been defeated, and the young woman is grinning from ear-to-ear. She earned lifelong bragging rights, while Gaston, whining, retreats to Gaston’s Tavern in shame.
