SHARK WEEK, Hilarious Mumford and Sons Video, & Tony Colombo's Fashion Advice
Posted 8/6/2013 6:15:00 PM

On today's blog you'll see pics of Tony Colombo and Andrew Stolze.

Check out the podcast of today's 5:30, 5:45, and 6:08 segments to find out WHY THESE PICS ARE UP!

If you haven't seen it yet, MUMFORD & SONS put out a music video on Sunday for their newest single, "Hopeless Wanderer". But the video doesn't include any of the actual band members.

Instead, it's Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, and Will Forte DRESSED as the band, and lip-synching the song. But you can't tell for the first minute, since they play it pretty straight, and hide their faces.

Then it gets more ridiculous as the song goes on. And near the end, Sudeikis and Forte MAKE OUT.

 

With "Sharknado" and Shark Week, everyone's talking about sharks. But are they pleased with all the attention?

Maybe we'll find out with the Top Things Sharks Are Thinking.

Yeah, we have a cool theme song, but it's nothing compared to "Barracuda".

Swim? Check. Eat? Check. Reproduce? Check. Now what the hell am I supposed to do with the rest of my day?

Of course we rule the ocean. You don't see "Crabnado" or "Squidnado" trending on Twitter do you?

You think we're terrifying? You should see Tara Reid up close!

Man, it's hard to bite through Botox.

Why is it every time I lose a tooth, it ends up around some idiot's neck?

After watching that Megalodon special, I am officially ashamed to be a shark.

The Discovery Channel launched "Shark Week" on Sunday night with a FAKE documentary called "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives", about a huge, 70-foot prehistoric shark . . . that suddenly showed up this past April.

Some scientists believe the Megalodon DID exist at one point, but that it's been extinct for one- to two MILLION years. Obviously, the documentary about it being spotted earlier this year was just as fake as Animal Planet's staged mermaid "documentaries."

(Interestingly enough, Animal Planet's first mermaid mockumentary, "Mermaids: The Body Found" also featured a Megalodon.)

The Discovery Channel's Facebook page was LIT UP yesterday with people ANGRILY complaining about "Megalodon", and their decision to waste everyone's time with an elaborate HOAX.

Nonetheless, Discovery appears to have got the last laugh. The network hasn't directly responded to all the hate, but they did announce that the special was the highest-rated telecast in the 26-year history of "Shark Week."

An estimated 4.8 million viewers tuned in . . . and 2.1 million viewers stuck around for the bizarre post-special talk show, "Shark After Dark".

Comedian JOSH WOLF hosted the after-show, which also featured DOMINIC MONAGHAN from "Lost". Also, on social media, #Megalodon and #SharkAfterDark trended worldwide on Twitter, and SharkWeek.com got more than 1.5 million hits on Sunday alone, which is a 53% increase from last year.

It IS disappointing, but it really shouldn't be surprising that . . . with all the hype and attention on reality and sensationalistic TV . . . that even Discovery would want a piece of the action.

What do you think?

Did you see "Megalodon"?

Were you annoyed?
