Too Much Tuna!

Good news: You no longer need to be a Broadway devotee in order to spend time with two weird old cranks with a lot of grudges and far too much tuna, because Oh, Hello is officially coming to Netflix. Nick Kroll—who, with John Mulaney, makes up half the duo of semi-sociopathic pranksters Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland—made the announcement on Netflix, noting that a filmed version of the Broadway hit will arrive on Netflix on June 13.

It Will work. Shinsuke = Spike Spiegel mixed with Michael Jackson

This Sunday night’s Backlash show marks the beginning of a new era in WWE, one that would have been shocking even two years ago. For the first time in its history, the world’s largest professional wrestling promotion is attempting to turn a Japanese wrestler into one of its top stars—the top star, in fact, of one of…

Great Job, Internet!: You’re welcome, kid who is now getting free Wendy’s nuggets

by Randall Colburn

It is finished.

Carter Wilkerson, the 16-year-old Reno native who brought a nation together by demanding free food, now holds the Guinness World Records title for “most retweeted message on Twitter.” In April, Carter asked the Wendy’s Twitter account how many retweets it would take to get free chicken nuggets for a year. Wendy’s, a chain that’s proven themselves to be quite good at Twitter, responded with “18 million.”

As of May 9 at 10:37 a.m. Eastern, his initial tweet was retweeted 3,435,067 times, surpassing the previous record holder: Ellen DeGeneres’ celeb-studded Oscar selfie.

Despite not reaching his lofty goal ...

Newswire: Fox gives series orders to Ghosted and LA To Vegas

by Sam Barsanti
Alecbugg

Daryl and Big Head let's gooooo

According to Deadline, Fox has just given series orders to two of the network’s hottest comedy pilots: Ghosted and LA To Vegas. The former is billed as a comedic spin on The X-Files, with Craig Robinson playing a cynical skeptic and Adam Scott as a “true believer” who are enlisted by a secret organization to investigate supernatural activity in Los Angles. Naturally, there’s also some kind of overarching mystery that Scott and Robinson have to reckon with, because it wouldn’t be an X-Files parody without mythology. But there’s no word on if Ghosted will include its own spin on the Cigarette Smoking Man. Ghosted is written by That Awkward Moment’s Tom Gormican.

The other series, LA To Vegas, is a workplace comedy about an airline crew that flies a weekly trek from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, ferrying a group of “eccentric passengers” back and ...

Mark your calendars

Tonight’s snoozer of a PPV saw Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez dominate Julio César Chávez Jr. for 12 rounds, a fraud upon the viewing public that exposed itself to be purely the trailer for a megafight later this year after reigning, undefeated middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin appeared in the ring to join Canelo in…

Newswire: Dr. Katz is back in the healing business with new audio series

by Danette Chavez
Alecbugg

Ohhhh so excited

Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist packed up shop on Comedy Central back in 2002, but because the world has just become increasingly unstable since, the titular counselor is poised to make a return. Dr. Katz: The Audio Files will hit Audible Channels on June 8, when the good doctor will dispense therapy to a new slew of celebs. The audio series is set 20 years after the cult animated series, but not much has changed—Ben (H. Jon Benjamin) is still a slacker, and despite being middle-aged, still lives with his dad, who continues to try to help Hollywood players manage their neuroses.

The celebrities who will play themselves while seeking therapy include Sarah Silverman, Ted Danson, Ray Romano, Margaret Cho, Weird Al, Maria Bamford, Pete Holmes, Dana Gould, Emo Philips, Ron Funches, and Andy Kindler. Their 15-minute “sessions” will be available to Audible and Amazon Prime members, or for sale ...

The Internet Turned Wendy's Twitter Into a Smug Anime Girl

Alecbugg

These twitter exchanges are savage

via ScottyArtz
 

The Wendy's Twitter account has been a little busy ever since that kid gained millions of retweets in his quest for a year of free chicken nuggets. But just under the radar, another part of the internet has been having a very different kind of fun with the fast food chain. Taking inspiration from Wendy's famously brutal social media comebacks, fan artists are giving the restaurant's redheaded mascot a mischevious anime makeover. 

It all started when Twitter user Liz Finnegan spotted Wendy's starting some fresh beef with rival  Hardee's.

Like most Wendy's takedowns, this assault was entertaining enough to get written up all over the internet. It sort of makes you wonder what kind of person runs that account. The woman who was at the helm previously left the company in March, but the tweets have kept coming -- but from who? Artist professorSugoi has an idea.

It makes so much sense. Behind every snarky tweet, every third-degree burn is an anime girl with a shitty, self-satisfied grin. The concept resonated so much with Twitter and the online art community at large that lots of other Smug Anime Wendys started popping up all over. We've collected some of our favorites below.

Newswire: Ja Rule insists disastrous Fyre Festival was “NOT A SCAM”

by Katie Rife

The fyrefestival hash tag was amazing the past few days

As we speak, wealthy wannabes with cash to burn are being subjected to the horrors of folding chairs and plain cheese sandwiches at Fyre Festival. Pitched as an upscale experience in the Bahamas full of yachts and hot models in bikinis, guests—who paid between $1,000 to $12,000 for tickets alone, and up to $250,000 for yacht packages—instead arrived to find the Spirit Airlines version of a music festival, with repurposed FEMA relief tents standing in for villas, attendees stranded at the airport, and, worst of all, no beer. As word began to spread of the economy-class conditions on Twitter and Reddit, Blink-182 dropped out, and organizers postponed the festival and offered refunds to guests who weren’t able to physically make it to the island.

Now, festival co-organizer Ja Rule has issued a statement on Twitter (via Pitchfork), saying his immediate concern is getting festival-goers ...

Contest: Chicago, kneel before King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword early and for free

by Danette Chavez
Alecbugg

Here ya go Jared

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword checks so many boxes on the blockbuster to-do list: There are big names (Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law), magic and spectacle, and of course, monstrous elephants. Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the legend sees Hunnam take on the role of Arthur, the real heir to the throne that Vortigern’s (Law) languidly draped himself across. Their fight for power will draw out the aforementioned magic, rampaging elephants, and some more great headgear for Law.

Hunnam said his training for the role involved throwing 1,000 punches a day, but you won’t have to perform such an arduous task for your chance to catch the action on screen. The A.V. Club is giving away free passes to an advance screening of King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword on Monday, May 8 at 7p.m., at the Showplace ICON at Roosevelt Collection theater. Just ...
