'Key & Peele' Is Ending, But These Sketches Will Surely Live On

(0) Comments | Posted July 29, 2015 | 12:22 PM

 

SORRY, ONE SECOND, WE HAVE SOMETHING IN EVERY EYE.

 "Key & Peele" is ending after this, their fifth, season and it's sad to see them go. But they are going out on a high, and we'd all love to see them hit a larger audience.

It really feels like they not only pick up where "Chappelle's Show" left off, but they outdo it in a lot of ways. Their amazing physical transformations allow them to comment on current events involving race, gender and politics, while they also write terrific evergreen sketches about everyday life. They can do both, and do them well. 

So here are few of our favorite clips from their great run. And remember, even the strong cry.

What You're Both Thinking (But Not Saying) During A Breakup

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 2:25 PM

 

It's hard to say which type of breakup is preferred. You have the angry ones where everyone's being totally honest and the other person's feelings are an afterthought, and personal items are burned or thrown out the window.

And then there are the awkward ones, where no one wants to be the bad guy, but also no one's really speaking their mind. And that leaves all parties involved with torturous thoughts and lingering questions.

This video is all about the latter. 

BuzzFeed producer Ali Vingiano and Glamour magazine present the final episode in their video series "Subtext," comedy sketches all about exploring honest inner thoughts during often-tough, everyday situations. It's like a breakup conversation translator.

Yeah, we know. Terrifying.

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 5:48 AM

 

NO EYE CONTACT WITH JON.

On Monday, Comedy Central posted some rare video of host Jon Stewart doing a Q&A with his audience and it highlights just why he's so loved by not just the world but, in fact, the whole universe.

Watch Jon answer questions about his animal sanctuary -- which is just going to be a giant barbecue -- his favorite Springsteen album, and his worst idea that made it onto air involving comedian Dave Attell dressed as Hitler.

Young Couples Try Handwritten Love Letters For The First Time

(0) Comments | Posted July 27, 2015 | 9:22 AM

 

When was the last time you wrote anything down? Like, pen-to-paper? ... Oh, well, a "pen" was an analog writing device used many years ago, eventually replaced by computers, and then later replaced by abandoning the written word all together with emojis and GIFs.

So, suffice to say, most young couples have not written a traditional love letter. BuzzFeed asked them to do just that, and the results were ...

Lindsey Graham's Leaked Voicemails Are Very Revealing

(0) Comments | Posted July 23, 2015 | 3:44 PM

Donald Trump released Lindsey Graham's phone number to the public this week, and the public, of course, responded by calling and texting in droves. Much like they would during the time-honored American tradition of voting him off an island or a dance competition. 

Funny or Die has gotten a hold of the voicemails people left on Lindsey Graham's phone, and they are quite revealing. As usual, Donald Trump comes off looking like a very logical and reasonable human being.

"Like a weird genie!"

If you watch one video of a man getting inside of a giant water balloon today, make it this one. 

The Slow Mo Guys are back with another giant water balloon video, but this time, one of them gets inside and they fill it until it can't be filled anymore.

Poor souls.

이것이 바로 솔직한 아이폰 광고다!(동영상)

아이폰 광고는 참 근사하다. 그저 일상의 사람들이 일상적인 모습을 아이폰 카메라로 담는 모습을 보여준다. 로맨틱하고 또 편안하다.


그러나 진실은, 당신의 일상은 아이폰 광고와는 다르다는 거다.


당신은 아이폰으로 요리법을 촬영하다가 냄비에 폰을 떨어뜨릴 것이고, 아름다운 해변을 촬영하다가 난감한 상황에 빠질 것이다. 뭐 하나 아이폰 광고처럼 편안하고 로맨틱하게...

This Is What An Honest iPhone 6 Commercial Looks Like

(0) Comments | Posted July 20, 2015 | 1:45 PM

 

Remove those rose-colored phone cases. 

The iPhone 6 commercials try to make it seem like recording video with an iPhone is a carefree, whimsical and romantic endeavor. The truth is, what you see in those commercials is rarely what happens in real life.

They don't see when you drop your phone and curse out your teenage son who's cracking up off camera. Or the couple getting freaky on the beach while you try and capture that beautiful ocean sunset.

Elite Daily has produced an honest iPhone 6 commercial that is much closer to reality.
