BoomTown loves the spoof videos that late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel does–Hello, Humpilates!–and this one featuring actor Christoph Waltz is another great one. Waltz always plays scary dudes–usually, some version of a Nazi, if not one, in fact–in movies, and so making him a homicidal judge on the talent show “American Idol” is perfection.
Conan O’Brien has been all over the South by Southwest festival this week, hawking a new documentary about his time wandering in the late-night talk television wilderness after he left “The Tonight Show” last year, titled “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.” His hysterical journey, of course, was deftly played out by O’Brien all over the Internet, which was definitely on “Team Coco.”
This mock fitness video by late-night television talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is so funny that it made BoomTown do several spit-takes watching it. It is for a product called “Hottie Body Humpilates,” and includes a bevy of glam Hollywood actresses doing bad things to an exercise ball. Enough said.
Excellent! Although they did not do their patented line–”Schwiiiing”–Wayne and Garth (also known as Mike Myers and Dana Carvey) of faux cable show “Wayne’s World” were back on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. And it was a welcome visit.
Jimmy Fallon has embraced technology in general, and Twitter specifically, since his late-night show launched last year. So it’s about time he had the Twitter dudes on to chat.
Yahoo is not the only HR excitement these days! Here is a very funny spoof of the firing of NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker last week by new owners Comcast, which was on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” late-night television show. BoomTown interviewed the media mogul at the seventh D: All Things Digital conference in 2009, which is also below. Guess which one I like better.
