The Daily Video: Paris Hilton responds to McCain campaign ad

You may have seen the rather tacky ad the John McCain camp issued recently, equating Barack Obama to a Paris Hilton-style celebrity unfit for the US Presidency.

Well, now Paris and the folks at FunnyOrDie have hit back with this response:

The Daily Video: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

This is the 43-minute ‘tragicomic musical’ created by Joss Whedon, exclusively for distribution on the web.

According to Wikipedia:

It tells the story of Dr. Horrible (Billy), an aspiring supervillain, Captain Hammer, his nemesis, and Penny, their mutual love interest.

The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and Jed’s fiancée, actress Maurissa Tancharoen.

The writing team penned the musical during the WGA writers’ strike.

The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike.

It is available on US iTunes store and the video site Hulu – normally two places UK viewers can’t access for copyright reasons.

However the above video appears to be working.

The Daily Video: Legless Kung Fu

This is a clip from a 2001 film called The Ghost (also known as ‘Code of the Dragon’ in some countries) which was a forgettable action film about a Chinese soldier going undercover in America as an Asian Internet bride.

For reasons best known to themselves Michael Madsen and Brad Dourif were in it.

However, it involves this soon-to-be-a-viral-classic clip of a guy with no legs beating up some thugs (the bad German dubbing makes it even more surreal).
