Donald Duck – a Dogma film (trailer)

From Icelandic comedy group Mid-Island, comes a mock trailer for a Dogma film about the lives and times of Donald Duck.. in Danish.
Donald leads a tormented life on the unforgiving streets of Duckburg, where sometimes he must betray his own conscience to make ends meet.
Donald has to raise his 3 nephews, deal with a cheating girlfriend and put up with working for his stingy uncle; the richest duck in down. Is this funny? I don’t know. It’s interesting though. But also racist, I think. I don’t like the way they portray Goofy. At all. Is it me?

Improv Everywhere takes the award for best April Fool’s Day prank:

Improv Everywhere takes the award for best April Fool’s Day prank with a terrific video allegedly starring eight sets of identical quadruplets. In a Monday morning message to viewers, they admitted that “the likelihood of us being able to assemble eight sets in New York via our mailing list was pretty preposterous.” Nonetheless, well played, as usual.

The Quadruplets mission was their annual April Fool’s hoax. They teamed up with filmmaker Cameron Sun and had him create some awesome visual effects. All of the “quadruplets” were single actors mixed with Cam’s special effects. Identical quadruplets are of course very rare, 1 in 13 millionOne estimate guesses that there have only been 67 sets of identical quadruplets born ever. So the likelihood of Improv Everywhere being able to assemble eight sets in New York via their mailing list was pretty preposterous indeed.

Richard Branson:

“I have long held a fascination with volcanoes since reading Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Alongside our adventures with Virgin Galactic and Virgin Oceanic, volcanoes are the next great unexplored terrain.”

Sure. What is today’s date again? Funny one though.
