Furious 7 Won’t Stop
The seventh installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Furious 7 just nailed down an unprecedented $15.8 million on early Thursday previews. Projections for the full opening weekend performance at the Box Office for the film are estimated to be in excess of $160 million, which would land it among the biggest opening weekends of any movie ever. We’ll have to wait until Monday to see the final results, but we’re pretty sure the film world will be impressed, though the Best Picture Oscar prediction from star Vin Diesel is dubious at best.
Ford Speed Dating Prank
In honor of Valentine's Day, Ford has put out a short video titled "Mustang Speed Dating." In the clip, a few unsuspecting guys go on a blind date with a woman who turns out to be a professional stunt driver. After meeting in a café, the woman asks each man if they want to go somewhere else and offers to drive.
Once in her car, she admits that she doesn't know how to drive stick and maneuvers out of the parking spot in a manner that would make every car enthusiast cringe, but she then takes each guy to a parking lot where she unleashes every single one of the 435 horses the 5.0 liter V8 Stang has to offer. Needless to say, each guy was a bit surprised when the woman they thought barely knew how to drive stick was now ripping donuts through a parking lot. Although the latter half of this video is great, my favorite part is earlier in the clip when one guys tells the woman that he's a ninja.
Marshawn Lynch Speaks
As most football fans already know, Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like talking to the media after games, often giving them the same short answer over and over when asked questions. However, Skittles finally got Lynch to talk for this mock interview, which he most likely agreed to because they placed a giant bowl of his favorite candy placed right in front of him, and of the course the fact he has an endorsement deal with company. In this video we learn many new things about Lynch, such as he enjoys watching cat videos over dog videos and he would prefer to take a blimp to the stadium over taking a jetpack. But for anyone thinking Lynch turned over a new leaf and would start speaking to the media in a real setting, think again. On media day this past Tuesday Lynch answered every question with, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.”
Mean Tweets - CFP Edition

Anyone who watches Jimmy Kimmel Live! is familiar with his segment, “Mean Tweets,” where celebrities go on camera and read insulting tweets about themselves. Well before the CFP National Championship game between Ohio State and Oregon, ESPN aired a special edition of “Mean Tweets," featuring college football broadcasters and coaches. As usual, it’s hilarious.
For the inaugural College Football Playoff, AT&T put together a commercial featuring Heisman Trophy winners, Herschel Walker, Doug Flutie, and Bo Jackson. The legends have no issue bragging about their college successes to the commercials fourth star, Joe Montana. Unbeknownst to the three Heisman winners, Montana came prepared with his National Championship ring from Notre Dame, as well as his four Super Bowl rings. Needless to say, this quieted the guys pretty quickly.
