Driving Mister Foo Fighters

When you’re singing in the car (admit it, we all do it), we feel like a rock star. Our voice is in perfect pitch and we begin to ponder whether we missed out on our true calling in life.

We feel, in so any words, like we’re flying.

And then that moment happens when the song suddenly ends and we hear the remnants of what was really a bit of, shall we say, a musical disaster. It’s at this point that our balloon of rock stardom is popped and we appreciate the skill actual musicians and bands possess. However, we have to keep on driving.

One thing is certain: The “Mannequin Challenge” is substantially better than planking.

While freezing time may seem like a strange diversion from productive activities, there are elements of unity and creativity between the participants. TheĀ “Mannequin Challenge,” like social media, is proving to be a fun bridge for bringing people together in entertaining and bonding fashion. There is a feeling of being a part of something bigger through the lens of something positive and lighthearted.

Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall (Mannequin stars) have to think this is pretty co-

P.S. Let’s flashback to the original mannequin and that unforgettable song…

A Great Great Show

What’s the only logical way to kick-off a long weekend?

An intense rap battle with Ross from Friends, Late Late Show host James Corden and special guest Rebel Wilson is correct.

Whether in the car singing karaoke or dropping the mic Eminem-style, we’ll be there for you James Corden to see what you do next.

Including David Schwimmer.
