Amy Schumer and Josh Charles
This week, a bunch of kids learned what a Walkman is, and the worst Wheel of Fortune contestant ever blew not one, not two, but three puzzles on the game show. Amy Schumer and Josh Charles made a video that poked fun at Aaron Sorkin tropes, and Oreo staged a marketing campaign that challenged chefs around the country to "hack" everyone's favorite cookie. Oh, and Leonardo DiCaprio (maybe) showed off some interesting dance moves at the Coachella music festival in California. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Shows on the bubble: Which will survive?
Kids with Walkman: Get ready to feel old. The Fine Brothers published a video this week of kids reacting to a portable cassette player. Their theories about what it is include a phone and a walkie-talkie (sigh). In retrospect, the fast-forward/rewind function was severely lacking.
Leonardo DiCaprio dancing at Coachella: Is this short video really footage of Leonardo DiCaprio getting down to MGMT at Coachella? Who knows, but we like to think that it is. And the girl behind him seems pretty excited, either way.
"The Foodroom": This parody sketch featuring Amy Schumer and Josh Charles teases a new Aaron Sorkin series called The Foodroom, a high-stakes drama that's set in a fast-food restaurant. Walk-and-talks and rapid-fire dialogue abound!
Oreo Snack Hacks: Oreo's getting into the web series market with "Snack Hacks," which offers recipes for Oreo-themed foods that few people would ever dream could exist — i.e. Oreo tacos, Oreo chicken cutlets and Oreo shandies. Check out one installment below (viaTubefilter):
Worst Wheel of Fortune contestant: D'oh! Julian Batts' appearance on Wheel of Fortune is downright painful to watch. First, the Indiana University student loses a (completed) puzzle because he mispronounces "Achilles." Then, he blows two more puzzles by the end of the episode. That buzzer is the sound of $1 million (and a car, and a trip to London) slipping through Batts' fingers. Consolation? He eventually won the game.
World's Toughest Job Interviews: In this video that's been making the rounds on social media this week, applicants apply for a "Director of Operations" position that essentially sounds like the worst job ever. Requirements include standing up most of the time, and 135+ hour work weeks. (Surprise: There's a twist ending.)
Cute Combat: This is the best idea for a web series we've ever heard. Lucas Cruikshank pits adorable animal videos against each other for the recently launched "Cute Combat." In the first episode, aggressive seagulls square off against snugglefests. (via Tubefilter)
