Remember That Time Wendy O Williams Was On An Episode Of MacGyver?

Yeah, me neither. But it did happen and the episode “111 Harry’s Will“, aired on November 5th, 1990. And it was as awkward and as awesome as it sounds . Extra heavy metal points go to Marion Ross (dressed as the flying nun) who got to hip-check Wendy at an ice skating rink, and to for Wendy for probably really scaring the piss out of Abe Vigoda. The entire cast of this episode deserved an Emmy for this. Bonus? The clip above also contains a scene from the 1989 movie “Pucker up and Bark Like a Dog” that Williams also appeared in along with Phyllis Diller. PHYLLIS FUCKING DILLER. Mind blown.

This Is What Judas Priest Looks Like Through The Eyes Of Matt Groening

Since I’m not a fan of spoilers, I almost hate to post this clip of an animated Judas Priest banging out a parody of Breaking the Law on last nights show, ‘Steal this Episode’. But it’s too good not to share. 2014 is shaping up to be a good year for the band who will not only collectively turn 45, but have also promised to unleash a new record sometime during 2014.

Iggy Pop To Play Stoned Caterpillar In ‘Once Upon A Time In Wonderland’ TV Series

tumblr_m872v72zis1rtszqfo1_500

Iggy Pop has replaced Roger Daltrey as the voice of a stoned caterpillar in upcoming ABC TV series, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland. The grim looking show, a riff on Alice in Wonderland, has poor Alice shut up in a mental institution, because she keeps telling stories about talking rabbits, and hookah smoking, caterpillars that occasionally break into a chorus from Search and Destroy (I wish!). So make sure you clean out your best bong, as the show is set to premiere on October 10th. It’s a slow news day folks…

Very Metal Flashback: Cinderella Shilling For Chili Dogs In 1983

According to the comments from the camera man who shot this commercial, Cinderella did the commercial for Pat’s Chili Dogs in Philly for free as a favor to the owner of Pat’s, who was an old friend of the band. It took 3 hours to shoot, including the hour it took the band to put on their makeup. Also, former Cinderella guitarist Michael Kelly Smith (who with the band from 1983-1985), was a vegetarian, so his bun was actually empty, which you can see at the end of the commercial. In other news, Cinderella was from Philly? Mind blown…

Norwegian Zombie Themed Commercial Is Too Scary For NorwegianTV


Norwegian zombie commercial will not be seen in Norway. But you can see it here.

Last weekend, Norwegian sporting goods company XXL, aired a zombie themed commercial during a popular prime time Talent show on Senkveld TV2. The commercial, which you can watch above, starts off with the a horde of zombies invading a sparkly suburban setting, terrorizing the milkman, a kid on a scooter, and a chick in a bikini. Then things get real when random athletes appear on the scene, and a brutal showdown involving golf balls, fishing hooks, baseball bats, and any other type of athletic equipment along with their owners, begins.

In a not-so-surprising turn of events after the commercial aired, Norwegians took to their Twitter and Facebook pages to attack the ad for it’s gruesome content.

Cruel advertisement you have!! What the heck is the point in that???? Shame on you and be respectful to remove it immediately!! If at least not like to be a customer of you now!! Fy!! ”

“I would like to give you feedback on a stupid and provocative advertising that goes on television these days. It is completely unacceptable! Hardly intended for children 9 years as my son. “

Shitty translation aside, if your commercial features zombies losing their limbs due to a bad golf swing, it’s probably not a great idea to air it when impressionable Norwegian children are still awake listening to their black metal records. Of course, all this really means is that XXL’s commercial is one of the greatest advertizing achievements by anyone, ever. And it makes me want to play golf. And I hate golf. Sadly, XXL has since pulled the ad, saying that they were caught off guard by the complaints they received. But what do you think? Let’s see how CB.com readers feel about this Norwegian zombie controversy.
