Fan has epic meltdown after Batista wins Royal Rumble (Video)

Wrestling fanBatista winning the Royal Rumble over the weekend did not go over well with wrestling fans. Check that: anyone other than Daniel Bryan winning the Royal Rumble would probably have gone over poorly with fans.

But was anyone more heated over the outcome of the event than this fine lad?

Just look at this dude. First he rips the thing off the wall. Then comes the heated declaration, “I’m never ordering the f—ing pay-per-view again ever!” that you know he’ll never live up to. Then comes some more angry ranting. And then guy starts looking around for more crap to break.

That was beautiful. Thank goodness some blessed soul had the presence to record the fantastic moment.

Scarlett Johansson SodaStream Super Bowl commercial ‘banned’ by FOX (Video)

Scarlett Johansson SodaStreamScarlett Johansson is the new global brand ambassador for SodaStream, and the blond beauty will be featured in a Super Bowl ad for the company this weekend. But the commercial you’ll see is one that has been edited to fit FOX’s demands.

No, the commercial wasn’t flagged because it shows ScarJo in provocative poses or clothing that’s too hot for TV. Rather, it’s because at the end of the commercial, Johansson mentions Coke and Pepsi in a negative way. The marketing company behind the commercial says FOX wouldn’t allow that, which is why they had to make a change for their “banned” commercial.

Of course, SodaStream was asked to make similar changed regarding their use of Coke and Pepsi logos in their ad last year, so it’s not like they didn’t know this would be an issue. They probably did this so they could claim the commercial was “banned” and get extra attention from people who want to find out why or see the “uncensored” version of the commercial.

That doesn’t make them marketing geniuses or anything; I’d watch a video of Scarlett playing freaking ping pong if that were in the cards.

Below is the behind-the-scenes video for the commercial. Sadly for you, it’s more about SodaStream than ScarJo showing skin.

NFL Bad Lip Reading returns with another hilarious video

Tom-BradyJust over a year ago, the folks at Bad Lip Reading brought us a phenomenal compilation of NFL highlights. Bad Lip Reading’s YouTube channel has nearly 3 million subscribers — up from roughly 880,000 the last time they released an NFL video. Their latest master piece should help them pick up 3 million more.

Tom Brady’s “is this the party?” line at around the 20-second mark was probably my favorite part. Like last year, it was all solid gold.

These guys are geniuses. You’d swear some of those lines are exactly what the players said. If you need a refresher or want to keep laughing, be sure to check out last year’s video here. I already can’t wait for next January.

Referee rides Derek Fisher set to Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’ (Video)

Ref-rides-Derek-FisherIn the final seconds of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s win over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, an official somehow ended up on Derek Fisher’s back. Fisher and Patty Mills went to the ground to fight for a loose ball, and one of the refs who came into to break up the ensuing scrum ended up standing over the veteran point guard.

When Fisher tried to get up, the ref ended up straddling him like he was a horse. He appeared to ride Fisher for a couple seconds before hopping off his back and letting him get up. Naturally, that inspired SB Nation’s Brian Floyd to create a clip of the hilarious situation set to Ginuwine’s “Pony.”

And the internet strikes again. The world just wasn’t as funny a place before we could do stuff like this.

Drunk goalie video? Drunk goalie video.

Drunk-goalieA goalie from an amateur hockey league in the Czech Republic appeared to take the term “beer league” way too literally before a recent game. According to the person who posted these videos on Reddit, the goaltender was drunk while playing. We can’t confirm that, but we can confirm that he had something seriously wrong with him and did not belong in net.

Amazingly enough, the goalie was able to make a save at one point. In fact, the Reddit user even claimed his team ended up winning the game. We find that almost impossible to believe.

Arnold Schwarzenegger goes undercover at Gold’s Gym (Video)

Arnold Schwarzenegger goldsArnold Schwarzenegger has been all over the place lately dressing up in costume. He’s part of Bud Light’s ad campaign for the Super Bowl — you probably saw the commercials of him playing ping pong over the weekend during the conference championship games — and now he did a video as a trainer-turned-regional manager at the Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach.

The video is pretty funny, although very few people seemed to be fooled by him. And let’s be real here: with that voice, it’s nearly impossible to mistake him for anyone else.

The best part of the video had to be when he told the woman at the water fountain to do 10 reps of drinking water. That was gold, Jerry, pure gold.

Muscle and Fitness says the video was made as part of Arnold’s effort to raise money for his After-School All-Stars charity.

And if you missed the commercials of Arnold preparing to play ping pong looking like a cross between Bjorn Borg and Richie Tennenbaum, you can see them below:

Mike Trout can jump really really really high (Video)

Mike Trout jumpMike Trout is a supreme athlete. You already knew that. But it’s still pretty awesome to watch some of his athletic feats, such as him doing a ridiculous plyometric box jump during a recent workout.

Trouty posted the video to his Instagram page on Wednesday and added that there were only 42 days until spring training begins. Think he’s ready for another big season? I’d say so.

Trout is listed at 6-foot-1. The box looked like it came up to the middle of his pecs. Knocking about 18 inches off Trout’s 73 inches in height, and I’d peg that at somewhere between a 55-60″ clearance jump.

If you thought that was impressive — and it surely was — then you have to see this video of ex-Pro Bowl DB Adrian Wilson doing a 66-inch jump.
