Going, Going, Gone Viral: Ask Amy (Poehler)

Amy Poehler. Her name is synonymous with Saturday Night Live and is even better known as the star of the hilarious mockumentary-type show Parks and Recreation. So naturally, we were pretty excited to discover this video of Amy giving fantastic body image advice.

Her advice is simple and so eloquent – when you start to feel bad about yourself, go to a place of gratitude and be thankful for what your body gives you. It’s wonderful guidance that can be applied to so many facets of your life, not just your self-image.

Going, Going, Gone Viral: Nellie the Talking Otter

It’s a fact: We love funny animal videos. Not only are they adorable (and make us want to run out and buy the first cuddly critter we see), they’re also educational. For example, we knew that otters are insanely cute and ate shellfish, but we didn’t know they can sort of talk.

Going, Going, Gone Viral: I Love Chanel

Obviously, we are big fans of everything that Chanel does. And this video is no exception – especially with its Vogue-like styling and Rocky Horror vibe. But it’s also drumming up a bit of controversy. Around the 0:56 mark, some people are claiming that the voice-over says, “Men hate women who read.”

Our take? She’s reciting the famous Coco Chanel quote, “If you’re sad or heartbroken, make yourself up, dress up, add more lipstick, and attack. Men hate women who weep,” with an insanely chic French accent.

Going, Going, Gone Viral: Julia Child Gets Remixed

Cue the calls of “Bon appétit!” Yesterday would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday. In celebration of everyone’s favorite beef bourguignon master, PBS released this amazing “Julia Child Remixed” video. Watch it – and get ready to tap that foot.

Even after all these years, her recipes – and big personality – live on. This recent New York Times article gets it right:

It was Child – not single-handedly, but close – who started the public conversation about cooking in America that has shaped our cuisine and culture ever since. Her Mastering the Art of French Cooking was published in 1961, just as trends including feminism, food technology, and fast food seemed ready to wipe out home cooking. But with her energy, intelligence, and nearly deranged enthusiasm, Child turned that tide.

For more PBS remixes, check out Bob Ross Remixed and Mister Rodgers Remixed. They’ll melt your heart – and make your day.
