Wes Anderson has one of the most distinct visual styles in Hollywood, and it's easy to tell when he's behind the camera because shots start looking more symmetrical and characters become more charming.
Although he's known for his films Wes has also directed over a dozen TV commercials, often dragging some big names from Hollywood along for the ride:
Many of his commercials look like the company paying for the ad said "Here's some cash, give us the full Wes Anderson" which he always delivers in a most delightful way, like this homage to movie smart cars for the Hyundai Azera:
Some people become more timid and introverted as they get older, their fear of the world growing by the year, while others grow bolder and more brazen, feeling like they can do or say anything due to their advanced age.
They are the old folks without filters, the grandmas who gave up editing their thoughts before spitting them out long ago, and sometimes the things they say really stick with you.
BuzzFeed asked their Community to share the most things their grandmothers have ever said to them, and they received some rather hair-raising responses:
My brother came out as gay to my grandma and she said, “I knew girls weren’t going to like you from the beginning.”
The holiday we know as Christmas has been celebrated for centuries by many different cultures, but nobody has a crappy Christmas quite like the Catalonians.
They introduced a strange and stinky new element to their holiday traditions, one that many other cultures would find too crass for Christmas- poop.
Poop factors in to a few Catalonian Christmas traditions, including putting out El Caganer (The Crapper), a figure of a man defecating that is often put in with the standard Nativity set, like the giant example above.
Many modern Caganer figures are made to look like characters from pop culture and celebrities, here are a few crap-tastic examples:
There is also a cuter (yet just as crappy) tradition of putting out the Tío de Nadal (Christmas Log), also known as the Caga Tío (Crapping Log), which stands on two legs and has a painted on smiley face.
Let this story serve as a warning to all criminals on the run in the great state of Florida- if you're gonna run from the law and try to hide out until the whole thing blows over choose somewhere safe and dry.
This seems like common sense, since wet and deadly are hardly ideal conditions for someone trying to save their own skin, but for some reason stupid criminals on the run in Florida often end up in a swamp, lake or pond.
Here's why you should stay dry- a burglar named Matthew Riggins was running from cops in Brevard County, Florida when he decided to hide from their K-9 units in a Barefoot Bay Pond, where he was killed by an alligator.
The body was discovered ten days later, but a Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission trapper had to be called in to deal with an aggressive alligator guarding the body.
The gator was euthanized and Matthew's body was recovered, and an examination of the gator found chunks of human flesh in it's stomach. The coroner confirmed the gator had killed and eaten Matthew Riggins, drowning him first like any other prey.
The Mona Lisa has been the source of controversy for decades, with people wondering "who posed for da Vinci?" "Is this the original painting or a fake?" and "Is the painting really hiding some secret meaning behind that smile?"
A new discovery didn't reveal the answer to all of these questions, but it apparently proved the portrait hanging in The Louvre is the real deal- and there are three more portraits hidden underneath.
Not everyone who decorates for, and celebrates, Christmas is a Christian, and we put up holiday decorations we see as fun and funny assuming we're free to decorate our homes as we see fit.
Heaven forbid (literally) we present anything but the standard version of Christmas and the Nativity scene on our property, or we may end up paying with more than our souls...
That's the reality Jasen Dixon of Sycamore Township, Ohio is facing for the second year in a row because the city is threatening to fine him $500 a day for his Zombie Nativity tableau, which violates zoning laws according to city officials.
Some women wish they could keep their faces warm in the winter by growing a thick, luxurious beard like those side show ladies, or the feral werewolf women of Romania, but alas they were cursed with a relatively hair free face.
They've tried on fake beards and worn knit woollen face warmers to no avail, because the darn things aren't made out of their own hair, but it turns out all they really needed to do was wrap their own hair around their face!
Drunk people tend to start acting strangely as soon as the hooch takes a hold of them, and their behavior only gets worse as they get drunker and therefore feel less inclined to care how they're acting.
This is especially true if the drunks are drinking as a couple, because their special relationship fuels the flames of passion in their hearts, causing them to make a scene as a drunken duet.
This season you're sure to encounter some of the drunken couples on this comical list by Andrew Bridgman and Paul Westover at various holiday functions, so bear this terrifying truth in mind- they all started out as Fun Drunks!
First we had the various TV projects starring Dean Martin, then came The Gong Show, Baywatch and the even more incoherent Baywatch Nights, and a web series turned TV show where drunks talk about history.
Now the televised drunkenness has reached new creative heights with The Drunk Series, a web video series from Ganglebot Films written by and starring drunks.
It's the pinnacle of inappropriate programming, but The Drunk Series isn't encouraging alcohol abuse, they're merely taking advantage of every moment while the actors and writers are trashed.
Drunk people are admittedly pretty funny to watch on camera, but something tells me this show wouldn't have the same energy if it was written by and starred stoners, although someone's sure to try that formula soon.
If you're lucky enough to have a loved one in your life who enjoys messing with your mind, or one who follows your request to the letter even though they don't understand what you want, you've got yourself a keeper!
Jello Biafra is best known as a spoken word performer and frontman for the band Dead Kennedys, but he's also a political activist, prankster, and owns his own record label Alternative Tentacles.
Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that Biafra is also an actor, who has made many memorable cameo appearances in movies and TV shows such as Tapeheads, Portlandia and The Widower.
In Tapeheads Jello plays an FBI agent who says "Remember what we did to Jello Biafra?", a reference to the 1985 obscenity trial Biafra was involved in over the H.R. Giger poster included in the DK album Frankenchrist.
It's good that Jello can laugh about that bit of nonsense now, and it certainly didn't hurt his career!
Avid Facebookers often exaggerate about the good and bad parts of their lives, like their sense of self worth is fueled by likes and encouraging comments.
But many of those Facebook friends who brag about their perfect marriages, angelic kids and the idyllic paradises they call home are living a lie, and Keenan McGrath of Scary Mommy is calling them out.
All those amazingly decorated cupcakes sure do impress me, but I’d just love to see the state of your kitchen right now. Oh, and maybe a selfie so I can see the bags under your eyes from staying up until 2 a.m. to finish these, because when the hell else would any normal person have time to make a diorama of the North Pole out of sugar cubes? Also, I’m only about 50-percent sure you didn’t cut and paste that picture from Pinterest to shame us pre-made cupcake moms at the bake sale.
Enough with the BS about “how lucky I am to have such a wonderful husband.” It’s sweet maybe once a year on your anniversary, but otherwise it’s “lucky” you haven’t killed him. If you’ve been married for more than five years and can go for entire weeks without a single complaint about your spouse, then I want whatever drugs you’re on. You can love someone and still want to staple things to their head at least three times a week.
Her hilarious rant picks apart the lies being posted on Facebook every day- it's equal parts harsh truth and exaggeratedly irate monologue taking aim at people who probably aren't on Scary Mommy's friends list anymore.
Tyrants and despots and kids' TV shows- one of these things is not like the others, can you guess which thing just doesn't belong?
Well, someone should have told the creators of Hey Arnold!, Animaniacs, and Histeria!, because they had no problem including Hitler, Hussein and Stalin in their kiddie cartoon shows.
Animaniacs was known for taking risks and trying to appeal to both parents and kids with adult humor, but what did parents think when they saw Saddam Hussein making not one but (at least) two appearances on the show?
Well, you can't accuse Histeria!'s creators of pulling punches when it comes to teaching history, and it's definitely entertaining to watch as an adult, but what did the kiddies think of slapstick Stalin?
The Turducken is the most famous of all three-bird roasts nowadays, and when pics of the triple stuffed carnivore's delight became trendy online people started trying their hand at making the dish just for the bragging rights.
But what meal is complete after the entree, even if it's like three entrees in one? People knew there was something missing from that creatively crammed holiday meal, and they were right- it was missing the piecaken.
They said "you've gotta try it! It's like four or more desserts in one!"
But nobody cared...until they saw pics of that triple layered treat and realized how wonderful it would be to have pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie and moist white cake all in one massive tower of dessert perfection.
Virtually every auto maker in the world has one particular model they're truly proud of, with the big names having many defining models to choose from, but even the greats blunder greatly sometimes.
Take the Dodge Shelby Lancer for example- it's an ugly eyesore of a car that nearly besmirched the Carroll Shelby name, and unlike the Cobras or Mustang GT350 it took the Lancer a whopping 7.2 seconds to go from zero to sixty.
It's almost like Shelby was sick of style and speed, so he went looking for the safety and comfort of a sedan but didn't know quite how to make the transition.
The Ford Mustang II had a similar problem making the transition from being a macho muscle car to being seen as the brown corduroy bell bottoms of the automotive world.
The 'Stangs sexy curves were replaced with a boxier look inspired by the Pinto, and even though Ford gussied up Mustang: The Sequel up with King Cobra appearance packages, it was more like a mule than a mustang under the hood.
I'm sure you've heard the statistics that say breathing the polluted air in Beijing is like smoking 40 cigarettes per day, and air pollution is responsible for 4,000 deaths a day in China, but stats are hard to visualize.
So in order to bring attention to the environmental issue of air pollution, and illustrate how bad the air actually is in Beijing, performance artist "Nut Brother" vacuumed the air for months then made a brick out of his findings.
His vacuuming lasted four hours a day for 100 days, and then he mixed the soot and filth he'd gathered from the air with clay and created one big ol' brick of Beijing smog. *cringe*
They see you when you're bad or good, or when you're sitting in a recliner laughing at your friend who's passed out on the ground. Sometimes they report their findings to Santa, sometimes they simply deliver a slap to the offender!
Narcolepsy is one of those conditions people constantly joke about because they don't understand it at all, or they think "So you constantly take little naps, what's the big deal"
Well, according to this video by Sleepy Sarah Elizabeth that began as an accidental recording of a sleep attack, narcolepsy can be a really big deal since it shuts your body down, no matter where you are or what you're doing.
This video may give us a better understanding of what narcolepsy looks like, but it can never really explain how it feels to experience an uncontrollable sleep attack, which is clearly no laughing matter.
The Pirelli Calendar is known for featuring images of scantily clad (if not fully nude) women who are supposed to represent the sexy and sophisticated Pirelli brand.
But this year Pirelli took a big step in a bold new direction for their 2016 calendar by featuring strong women known for more than physical beauty, like Amy Schumer, Fran Liebowitz, Tavi Gevinson and the eternally artsy Yoko Ono.
Pirelli chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera says the new look of the calendar "reflects contemporary society", and with the queen of portrait photography Annie Liebovitz behind the lens the new calendar is their most sophisticated yet!
Stephen Colbert, Liam Neeson, Candy Crush Saga- what do these three dissimilar nouns have in common?
They all came together in one deliciously ridiculous sketch on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a sketch inspired by the news that Activision Blizzard has just acquired King Digital Entertainment for a staggering 5.9 billion dollars.
Activision is also about to get into the filmmaking business, making all movie adaptations of their video games in-house, so Colbert connected the dots and predicted what the upcoming Candy Crush movie will look like.
Historically speaking the British monarchs were not very nice people, but for some reason their pompous misadventures in debauchery and murder are often overshadowed by the regal visage seen in classic paintings.
But portraits don't properly depict the darkness that surrounded British monarchs such as Henry VIII and King John, although you can often see the shadow of something sinister in their eyes.
With their knack for spreading that darkness around to their subjects it's not surprising people celebrated their deaths, but the worst offenders often got their just desserts in the end.
King Henry VIII (arguably) died of obesity, and his body had grown so large that a gigantic, lead-lined coffin had to be specially constructed for his burial...and then his body exploded when it was placed in the coffin.
King John got to die relatively intact, but his death was perhaps the most humiliating of them all- because he literally crapped himself to death due to dysentery. But at least he went out while eating a "surfeit of peaches"...
Filmmakers have to take certain liberties with the characters they adapt for the big screen, and one of the biggest changes they always seem to make is to the character's appearance, namely their costume and accessories.
There's something about the way those super folks look in the comics that filmmakers don't see as modern enough (except for Spider-Man's costume) which, in the case of Tony Stark's facial accessory, is understandable.
But why can't Black Widow wear a mask or Hawkeye a cowl or hood? And what's wrong with the bright color schemes Thor and The Hulk are seen sporting in the comics? Why can't Hulk wear his purple pants in peace?
Most of us outgrow that "I need an adult!" feeling by the time we're in high school, or during our college days at the latest, but sometimes we encounter scary stuff that makes us feel like a kidult in need of adult supervision.
That's the feeling you get when you see something creepy that makes you want to hide in the closet and count to a hundred, or someone who gives you nightmares like a 5-year-old after watching Gremlins.
You may find it quite comforting to know there are other grown folks out there who feel like little kids when they encounter something creepy, but try and stifle your screams if you look through this post while you're all alone!
