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…

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.

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…

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.

They’ve Done It Again

From the makers of classic beers like Bud Light Golden Wheat, Bud Light Platinum and Bud Light Chelada comes the next thing to ruin your taste buds and give you a headache, Bud Light Lime Lima-a-Rita. 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. [...]

Windows Phone 7 Fangirls Rap: A Subtle, Unintentional Reminder of Just How Far Behind Microsoft is in the Mobile Device Market

October 21, 2011

Windows Phone Rap! from Carly Presho Dunne on Vimeo.

Listen, before anyone gets their feelings hurt, I have no doubt that Microsoft’s new Mango-powered Windows Phone 7 is a great device. That’s right, great. Just like the the Zune was/is.

Wait –  I don’t actually know if the Zune is all that great. I’ve actually never gotten around to checking it out, nor have I been bombarded by media related to its features and user-friendliness and the like. And, ultimately, I guess that’s a big part of Microsoft’s problem.

(Classic) Pic of the Day: As if we needed another reminder that the U.S. is painfully lagging behind the Far East…

The superiority of Asian technology is embodied in how they shrink their cunts

It started with widening the gap in education and scholastic aptitude in general. Then virtually insurmountable innovations in consumer electronics. Next came the complete and utter domination of the automobile industry, just prior to unveiling perhaps the most significant strides in genetic engineering to date.

Now, they’re shrinking vaginas and killing spermatozooms in one fell, over-the-counter swoop.  Do you even know know what spermatozooms are? I sure as hell don’t. But they do.

Time to awake up, America. Time to wake up, stop bitching about a 10% unemployment rate and ludicrously large national debt, and smell the lurbri cate the Far East is using to f*ck you in the ass. I mean, we’ve been trying to eradicate HIV/AIDS for what now, 30-plus years? They’re packaging the cure and placing it in a conspicuous box on the shelf at a Shanghai CVS.

Listen, we may never make the most reliable cars again, or the HDTV with the deepest blacks and best contrast ratio, but I’ll be damned if we’re gonna fall behind in the race to shrink c*nts.  Am I right?  Who’s with me?!? U-S-A! U-S-A!

Alabama Greeks may have just put the final nail in the coffin of sorority recruiting videos…

August 16, 2011

And I suppose we owe them some level of gratitude.

Now, I’m not sure how or why, but Frump apparently let this phenomenon pass it by. Yes, it seems over the past few years the student bodies of several esteemed academic institutions, including — but not limited to — Baylor, (somewhat esteemed) Florida State, and even Columbia Business School, have made numerous examples of relatively professional, marginally successful, and mildly bewildering YouTube recruitment videos.

Of course, as you see, none of them quite capture that particular, peculiar essence of “WTF” the way our Crimson Tide girls do up there.

Indeed, apparently not content nor wise enough to sit idly by in the midst of such endeavors, this panhellenic coalition of Greek forces at the University of Alabama made its very own “Going Greek” video, so to speak. Sadly, I’m not sure even Nick Saban — despite the blatant, pandering reference — could make this pitch a convincing one. I mean, “Friday,” was, like, so last week, ladies.

Thanks to the Admiral for “Going Greek” on this one.

Video: Woman freaks the f*ck out after horse-drawn carriage mishap

If you’re one of Frumpzilla’s literally dozens of return readers, then this may come as a surprise, but — believe it or else — we generally don’t take pleasure in other people’s pain. Truth.

Having said that, sometimes said pain is apparently derived from such unreasonable, ridiculous sources that, well, I guess we simply can’t help ourselves.

Take the inordinate amount of pain experienced in the above video; it’s a classic example of this phenomenon. I mean, short of  being under the impression that a nuclear device was somehow implanted in that horse — one triggered by the equine choosing to backup and/or deciding to take a break — is there any rational reason susceptible to empathy for those hysterical (albeit hilarious) cries of “Run! Run!” ?  The huffing? The puffing? The Blair Witch Project-inspired cinematography?

I say no. Which, of course, is why I took such great pleasure from this incident. Save the fallen horse, obviously.

College Girls at Deep Throat Competition

Here at Frumpzilla we know that appearances can be deceiving. For instance, our lack of recent activity could suggest that we’ve abandoned our humble little blog when in truth we’re simply on our annual summer sabbatical.

By the same token, at first glance one might think that this month’s pic of the day just depicts your average gaggle of cute, beer wielding, Catholic college girls pre-gaming for yet another rip-roaring night of resisting the devilish temptations of premarital intercourse.

However, a deeper, more penetrating examination, reveals that these ladies are actually fierce competitors — ready to take down any and all obstacles in their path to glory.

My money’s on the obvious favorite: Contestant #10, donning the Celtics black alternate jersey.

Thanks to DBJ for the pic — and for making even a passing reference to the word “shoopie.”

With trucks like these, who needs enemies?

June 15, 2011

1 Comment

It’s not everyday one gets to see a man run over not once, but twice by indiscriminate pick up trucks — let alone face the reality that the relative value of his well being pales in comparison to that of an “early model” Chevy (the action heats up around the 1:05 mark in the video)

Yes,  if the embarrassment of being run over by your own truck wasn’t enough, surely seeing a cohort streak by your somewhat lifeless body at an Olympian-like pace — chasing after the very pick-up that just smote you down– would be enough for you to do some serious soul searching. Like, just WTF have I done to get here?

Little did you know that fate had not yet had her cruel, cruel fill of you, and that a second, leg-crushing blow had already been set in motion — and from a Ford no less!

That’s when you know it’s time for a change.  Time to find religion. Change religions. Maybe even buy a new truck (even a Japanese-made one). Something, anything to set right the course that had led you so wrongly astray.

Thanks to DBJ for the tip. He drives an “early model” Miata. Oh, and we’re told that the victim here is still alive and “kind of okay.” So that’s nice.
