Still operating anonymously despite some recent high-profile partnerships (Veep , the Spirit awards), the music producer behind Bad Lip Reading was inspired by his lip-reading mistakes when communicating with his deaf mother. Goofing on dialogue from Beyonce and Joe Biden to pics including Twilight, Bad Lip Reading’s biggest hit was channelling the absurdist observations of NFL players, which racked up some 35 million views:

History of the Eagles

PLAY:

Tomb Raider

“Flea Symphony”
(The Odd Gentlemen)
Bored with “Angry Birds?” “Flea Symphony” should keep the kids, and the musically inclined, even busier with this beautifully animated puzzle game from the indie gamemakers responsible for “The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom.” Available on Apple’s App Store.

    Might be given as a token of thanks. The Night Setting the wine is just
    I’m disappointed in my husband juice, right?

    I’ve been waiting for someone to bring it up under new analysis, since the game is now released and you can judge it yourself, but it seems this topic is destined to disappear like it never existed. Remember when people were calling out Crystal Dynamics for submitting to sexism when the only thing we knew about the ‘rape’ scene was that it existed? Christ. I hate what political correctness does to the media, And now no one is going to admit they were wrong about Tomb Raider? I just finished the game and thought it was absolutely stunning, and the scene in question was like one QTE out of the whole ~15 hour experience, and I felt it was a very appropriate sequence.

    I feel guilty as a male for bringing this up, but I don’t think CD did anything wrong.
