Tony Hale, Jessica Walter
This week, we got a sneak peek at the upcoming fourth season of Arrested Development, which will premiere on Netflix on May 26. Two aspiring filmmakers re-created the bullet sequence from The Matrix shot for shot, and two aspiring scientists blew up a cereal bowl to see what it would look like in slow motion. Kevin Spacey parodied House of Cards at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and the folks at CollegeHumor parodied Dove's "Real Beauty" campaign. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
