Chewbacca Mum


The Internet is a pretty hilarious place and every week, reliably, it throws up some videos, blogs and memes which make for absolute procrastination GOLD. You know the drill; everyone watches it, talks about it and then the next big thing comes along and everyone forgets it (apart from that ridiculous dress).

So, we’re rounding up the best things to happen so 1) you don’t miss them and 2) you’ve got somewhere reliable to come if you’re feeling a bit blue.

Whether you want a little lunchtime lol or Saturday morning pastime (instead of scrolling though Instagram), see it as your go-to hub of hilarity.

Here are the best things to happen...

1. James Corden Carpools with Chewbacca Mum

We're not ashamed to say that we nearly choked on our toast laughing when we first saw Chewbacca Mum - and now it's time for the second round! Beating Ellen to nab Candace Payne for her first major TV appearance, James Corden carpooled with Candace and none other than JJ Abrams - all in Chewbacca masks, of course.  

2. No Context Louis

Fans of Louis Theroux (so, everyone) will know that filming his documentaries sometimes gets him into pretty odd scenarios. This Twitter is snapshots of the documentary master in different odd scenarios, without context (obvs).

3. Shit Model Management Instagram

Two models undercover thoughts on their careers... Lol.



4. These Totally Amazing Met Gala Dress Instagrams

Katy, the Olsen twins, Zayn Malik, Solange — everyone got the Tommy Lenk treatment. The ex-Buffy star recreated the red carpet looks using only things in his house and the results were INCREDIBLE.

And in older (but equally excellent) news... Remember these?

1. That Time Justin Bieber Fell Over

Yep, that actually happened — during Sorry, on his tour. We don't like to be mean and laugh at misfortune but it was absolutely hilarious and he seems CHILL about it. (You would though, wouldn't you... To save face.)


2. Donald Trump In His Mean Girls Debut

The Republican candidate as a Plastic... It's a must-watch.

3. Parents Scaring The SH*T Out Of Their Children With Snapchat

Yes, it's kind of mean and we don't condone this kind of behaviour but have a look...

4. Bieber Getting Owned By An 11-Year Old

A school pupil's letter to Mr Bieber has gone viral after he called out the singer on the use of the 'subjective mood' in his song Boyfriend.


Please like/share this letter written by a pupil from my year 5/6 class, in South West Cornwall. They want to see how...

5. This MEGA Awkward Sex Joke

Turns out weather programmes aren't the time to attempt jokes about dogs and humans 'getting a room' — as this chap found out...

6. This Real Life Disney Story

The video has re-emerged about a penguin who visits a man, who saved its life when he was stuck in an oil slick, every year... SO cute.

7. Taste Of Streep

This Instagram is just excellent. The formula is Meryl Streep + food (+ a little bit of Photoshopping) = a hilarious feed. 

8. The Cumberbunny

Described as '400g of everyone's favourite detective', the Chocolate Cumberbunny is the Easter dream - and for only £50, though £70 if you want the white chocolate version with the 22 carat gold bow tie.

9. An Orangutan Washing Its Face With A Cloth

Eve Lom, you've got a new potential customer... That video has emerged of an orangutan cleaning its face with a jazzy stripey flannel and it's excellent.


10. Barack Obama 'Singing' Bieber's 'Sorry'

A famous person (kind of) singing a famous song - never gets old...

11. The DrakeOnCake Instagram

It is what it says on the tin - Drake lyrics, on a cake... Lol.

12. Kanye + Wiz Khalifa's Crazy Public Twitter Spat

The 3-day (and ongoing) argument between the two musicians saw some of the most embarrassing Tweets we've kind of ever seen - going in to the most personal areas of their lives... Check Kanye's Twitter account for the full recap, and here's a little taster...

13. That Panda In The Snow Video

Have you all seen it? Most likely, but it never stops warming your <3

14. The Story About A Monkey-Raccoon Hybrid

The account of an unnamed woman in Miami who was woken up by a 'furry big animal' (see below) caressing her face... 

15. Holly Willoughby And Phillip Schofield With Brutal Post-NTA Hangovers

The usually squeaky clean duo rocked up on Thursday morning, after their NTAs win, looking a little worse for wear... Maybe it was the stains on Holly's dress (yuh, they hadn't changed) or their dazed jabbering that gave away their hangovers, but it was LOL.

16. This Photoshop Genius Merging Celeb Faces...

Have you seen the result of Gesichtermix Photoshopping 'German and International' celebrities' faces together? It's excellent... Guess WHO?

... Leo + Sean Penn

... Claire Danes + J-Law

And there's 127 more where that came from on the Gesichtermix Instagram...

17. The Puddle

A massive puddle in Newcastle gained cult status and tens of thousands of watchers when a marketing company streamed people trying to cross it on Periscope. 

The managing director of Drummond Central told the BBC: ‘It's crazy, we watch it every single day […] We decided to stream it purely for our own amusement […] I'd love to say there's some clever deep strategy but it is just genuinely hilarious.’ 

The best part was when a man came down with a surf board and a lilo. Sadly it’s over now, having come to an end around 5.15pm on Wednesday but we look back at the very best moments fondly…


15. The Racoon Which Lost Its Candy Floss

For gawd’s sake, someone get the little fellow some more! This poor little raccoon had a total mare this week (which has now been watched over 45,000 times) when he tried to wash or hide – it’s unclear – his candy floss in a puddle and, obviously, the whole thing vanished much to his cute raccoony disappointment.


18. Making A Murderer Hairstyles Tumblr

It’s the Netflix show that’s got everyone literally (yes, LITERALLY) obsessed. Following the story of Steve Avery and members of the Avery family over court cases spanning over 20 years, it’s got everyone absolutely hooked. 

All ten episodes are available already so it’s an absolute spoiler nightmare, but something you can look at safely is a Tumblr page which has noticed just how fabulous the hairstyles are in the programme, with captions such as ‘A great do for making cheesy pies and feta filled salads. Also a great do for doodling police sketches that send an innocent man to jail for rape’. If you’re a fan of the show (and who isn’t?), check it out.


19. Craig David’s Justin Bieber Cover

Proving he’s still got it (kind of), in the cleverest PR move of 2016, the 90s crooner covered Bieber’s Love Yourself on the Radio 1 Live Lounge – a video which has now been watched over a million and a half times - a hell of a lot more than many of his own songs.


In the words of Steve Wilkes, copywriter of Drummond Central of puddlegate: 'All I can say is, god bless the internet.'
