Hot this Halloween: Teaching Your House to Gangnam Style

October 23, 2012

2 Comments

You know, until today, I’d always just assumed that Clark W. Griswold had shown the American populace the pinnacle of exterior holiday lighting. I also assumed that America was content with that; resigned to the fact that there was no further summit to scale in the range of home illumination. Nothing further to shed light on, so to speak.

Well, I was wrong.

I mean, maybe I”m just dull, or ignorant, or don’t go trick-or-treating enough anymore, but I had no idea setting holiday lighting to music was the hip thing to do now, let alone animating said lighting to simulate dance moves and vocals and what not. Pretty impressive, if perhaps a tad confounding.

Either way, in light of this ritual apparently becoming more and more prevalent these days,  I guess it should come as no surprise that a tune as ubiquitously popular as Korean rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style” would pop up on the block. And maybe even the next block. And the next. Any why not, if your neighbors can do it this well? Make the jump for a few more…

Video: Cannonball into frozen pool not quite the ice breaker this “Ice Dude” was looking for…

October 17, 2012

Frump has featured a lot of Russian kids doing weird and wild stuff over the years. With that in mind, I guess it’s only fair that we show some German adults pulling sufficiently similar stunts.

I think that’s German anyway. Does anyone know what “Oooh, ahhhh. Ooooh, ein ass!” means in English? All I caught was a couple of F-Bombs and something about David Hasselhoff. Then again, I guess we don’t really need a translator to understand what’s going on here, do we? Lolsome.

Meteorologist Mishap #127: “John” is Expanding

October 15, 2012

0 Comments

Don’t let the “127″ up there fool you — Frump hasn’t done a series on these classics or anything, though there might be one or two out there. 127 is just a rough estimate of how much sufficiently similar, legitimately lol-worthy stuff is likely out there on the interwebs. Indeed, a testament to the many pitfalls of being a weatherman.

You just have to be on a heightened state of alert in that profession, but most meteorologists know this. Most have seen enough dong-shaped animated graphics flying around behind them to know you don’t pull out the emphatic pelvic thrust maneuver all willy-nilly — not least when discussing the expansion of a tropical storm named “John.” Most know that.

Others, like our friend Dan up there, occasionally get caught with their pants down, exposed on YouTube and the like, but it’s all part of the learning process, I suppose.

G-Spirits: Liquor bottled and sold only after being poured over the breasts of a “special woman”

October 5, 2012

1 Comment

Question of the day, Frumpsters: Would you buy liquor that’s been bottled only after it was poured, erotically, over the rigid, rubbery breasts of an allegedly beautiful woman? Branded and brought to you by those two guys up there?

We’ll let you answer that on your own, free of judgement. Don’t be shy, though. It’s not like you’re buying a vial of vaginal scent for your on the go smelling pleasure, right?  You’ve certainly spent your hard-earned cash on more ridiculous novelty items, haven’t you? If so, then G-Spirits might just become your liquor of choice… [WARNING: G-Spirits website, while entertaining, is not the slightest bit safe for work]

Video: University of Tennessee “Butt Chugger” Denies Butt Chugging Incident, Threatens Legal Action

October 2, 2012

0 Comments

On September 21st, 2012 a University of Tennessee student, and Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity member, was hospitalized in an alcohol-related incident. Not exactly headline news, despite the blood-alcohol content of well over 0.40 reported by the media. Well, not headline news if not for the captivating two-word term that, according to Mr. Alexander “Xander” Broughton’s legal counsel, is now sweeping the nation, and possibly the world.

I’m talking, of course, about “butt chugging” — fraternally defined as the act of sticking rubber tubing up one’s ass and letting the beer, wine, and/or liquor flow (into said ass).

Your Pictorial Guide to Strange and Fascinating Facts About American Presidential History

September 26, 2012

3 Comments

With the Presidential election just around the corner, we thought it might be a good time to review our great nation’s rich and fascinating Presidential history. Especially the bits our public school system so glaringly omits.

Now, we obviously couldn’t care less who you vote for when you hit the polls come November – that’s a private and personal decision that you’ll have to reach on your own. We’re not here to persuade you one way or the other,  but we do think you should at least be armed with the knowledge necessary to give the voting process for the United States’ highest public office the respect it deserves.

For instance, learning that President Obama’s “Change” platform was actually a direct reference to, and namesake of,  his trusty crossbow may very well swing some votes away from the Romney-Ryan ticket, but that’s not our goal. We only wish to bring such frivolities to the forefront; how you use it, whether at your next pub-trivia night or when asking a question at one of the Presidential Debates, is up to you.

That said, come with us after the jump to learn some trivial, yet fascinating, facts about some of this country’s greatest political leaders…

It may be a tad early to crown this as Frump’s Pic of the Day, but it’s never too early to let our loyal readers — all 17 of them — know that they can sleep a bit easier tonight.

Former Miami Hurricane football player Dan Sileo is slightly concerned about the state of Miami football

September 13, 2012

3 Comments

In case you missed it, Miami took a pretty epic beating at the hands of Kansas State last weekend. What was supposed to be a fairly competitive game saw the Canes pummeled 52-13 in Manhattan, and — while I haven’t spoken to any personally — I’m sure such a result left many Miami fans wondering just how long it might be until their beloved program gets back to its rightful place amongst college football’s elite.

One such fan, and former Hurricane defensive tackle in fact, is Mr. Dan Sileo. Sileo actually began his playing days at Maryland in 1983, where he apparently broke the school’s bench press record previously held by NFL Hall of Famer Randy White. Not surprised.

Shortly thereafter, however, Sileo was kicked off the team after allegedly tossing a fellow student off the first-floor balcony of his dorm. I’m sure no one questioned Sileo’s passion, though.

Not willing to let his people tossing skills go to waste, Sileo soon made his way down to Coral Gables in 1984, but only after a summer tour with the Bridgeport, Connecticut chapter of the Hell’s Angels (seriously, all this is on his Wikipedia page, so you know it’s true).

Once with the Hurricanes, Sileo managed to keep his scholarship long enough to become part of what Sports Illustrated voted “The Most Hated Team of All Time”. After one year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however, Sileo left people tossing behind and eventually found his true calling as a radio host for 560 WQAM, a Miami-based sports radio outlet.

Needless to say, the passion is still there. The sanity, of course, remains in question. After all, it’s not everyday one hears kicks to the groin and/or eye gouging offered as motivational advice to college football players. But hey, it’s all just fun and games when confined to the epic meltdown of a man that still holds the title of strongest man in Miami Hurricanes football history, right?

Because everyone loves a good (asshole) cat video…

August 24, 2012

0 Comments

Well, it’s Friday, and it’s been a long time since we’ve posted anything. And, sometimes it’s just good to let ‘ol Googlebot know you’re still around.

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured cats being assholes here on Frumpzilla, but it’s certainly one of the best examples we’ve come across as of late. Sure, an apologist might describe domesticated felines as “independent,” “proud,” and “sly,” but the more level headed among us — i.e. “dog people” — understand that that’s simply a nice way of framing their true nature as smug, guile assholes that would scratch your heart out for just a whiff of Nepeta cataria.

If you still have doubts, watch the above video again. I mean, if they’ll do that to their own kind, what could they possibly be thinking as they’re curled up next to you, waiting for their “master” to fall asleep at night? Just sayin’, don’t say Frump didn’t warn you…

Thanks to DBJ for being an asshole…cat lover

Bull Shark Causes Ape Sh*t Reaction in Myrtle Beach Inter-Coastal Waterway

July 11, 2012

10 Comments

I stopped swimming in inter-coastal waterways a long time ago. Not because of bull sharks, mind you. They never really crossed my mind. More of a general fear of the unknown…and dirt. Maybe gar, or gators, or something else that probably poses no real threat to me, but not bull sharks. Until now.

The bull shark above, hooked off a residential dock in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina’s inter-coastal waterway, was supposedly a 6 to 7 footer. It was also eating a 5 pound red drum. Given the priceless reaction of the anglers, I think it’s safe to say that folks down in Myrtle Beach don’t typically encounter such beasts in those waters, and I imagine they’re somewhat grateful for that — though probably not as grateful as they apparently were to have caught it all on camera.

It’s 8% abv(which is sure to be its only redeeming quality) and will most likely remind you absolutely nothing of a well made margarita. [...]

Did Georgia QB Aaron Murray get sacked on Spring Break?

March 20, 2012

10 Comments

Is this Georgia Quarterback Aaron Murray getting caught in the sack by his teammates on Spring Break?

First and foremost, let Frump make this clear: We don’t know if this picture is actually of Georgia’s Heisman Hopeful quarterback, and all around good guy, Aaron Murray. Moreover, we’re not claiming it is. We just know that a lot of folks are. And, of course, that just about anything is possible on Spring Break.

Georgia players seem to be particularly susceptible to the wild and bizarre this time of year. Dawgs offensive lineman Watts Dantzler had quite an adventure on a Greyhound bus while returning from his Spring Break festivities, for instance. And then Senior cornerback Branden Smith got nabbed for possession of the green stuff in Alabama, apparently on his way down to Spring Break hot spot Panama City, Florida.

Assuming that is Murray with the epic “deer in headlights” look up there, the good news is that his most serious offense appears to be failing to use a coaster in such a classy establishment. That and maybe not locking the door.

Sure, one might question just what the hell that other dude is doing in the bed beside him, but Frump’s not here to pass judgement on anyone’s fetishes. Especially while on Spring Break.

Move Over ‘Velvet Fog’, There’s a New Golden Voice in Town

December 20, 2011

Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve frumped. In fact, it was going to be my new year’s resolution to remember my login and get back into this. However, every once in awhile, something comes along that makes you want to be a better person. It makes you want to smash the goals you’ve laid out for yourself and set the bar even higher. My something came this morning, when the above video arrived in my inbox.

I’ve done the Google research, and Will Forte does not have a new a movie coming out where releasing a viral video would help boost attendance. So, this thing is legit. I’m not sure what show it is, but that doesn’t matter as I’ll never watch it. How could they top this? My favorite part are the looks on the impressionable youth in the audience. This kid in particular may be our new Twitter avatar for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy the video as well as the ‘Re-dub’ which is just as enjoyable after the Frump.
