Jon Stewart Ripped Into Florida on The Daily Show Last Night

Categories: Viral Video

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was a guest on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show last night, and a roast of Florida broke out. Eh, let's be honest -- we deserve it. Funny is funny.

Rubio was on the show to promote his new book American Dreams: Restoring Economic Opportunity for Everyone, but the entire first segment was Jon Stewart going to town on Florida.

While introducing Rubio, Stewart took the opportunity to slam some Florida counties for their LGBTQ intolerance. Same-sex marriage became legal in Florida last week, but some counties have folded their arms and refused to perform any courthouse marriages this week -- gay or straight. Dammit, North Florida, we can't take you anywhere. Why you gotta North Florida so hard? This is your fault. Now Jon Stewart hates us.

Miami Comic Dave Williamson Totally Makes Out With His BCS Championship Tickets (VIDEO)

Janeane Garofalo said it best in The Truth About Cats and Dogs: "We can love our pets. We just can't looooove our pets." (In the sexy way, she means.)

For most people, the same is true of our college football teams. But don't tell that to Miami comedian Dave Williamson, who is really excited to watch Auburn in the BCS National Championship game this Monday. Like, maybe too excited. Licking-and-nuzzling-his-pair-of-tickets levels of excited.

Ten Miami Viral Videos That Deserve a YouTube Music Award

Categories: Lists, Viral Video

YouTube: a place where anyone can rise to fame within 15 minutes, and those fortunate (or hilariously unfortunate) few remain in our hearts and minds forever in the form of a viral video. In a pre-twerking age, those viral videos would remain a shared inside joke between yourself and your fellow viewers. But now, things are getting commercialized.

In partnership with the music industry, the first ever YouTube Music Awards is coming to a streaming device near you on November 3. The online award show will feature actor and musician Jason Schwartzman as host, will be taped live, and unlike typical three hour long award shows, this one will only be 90 minutes.

The nominations are set to be announced on October 17, and so we'd like to throw into the ring ten Miami viral videos that deserve an award (or at least a nomination).

The Infinite Sadness of Chris Bosh Remixes Bleeding Palm's Borscht Short Film

Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse? It's OK, I guess. I mean, if you're into a ton of color and evil internet queens and the idea of a multidimensional space prince playing for the Miami Heat.

But what if you're looking for something a little more serious, a little more black-and-white, a little more... French?

Then you're looking for The Infinite Sadness of Chris Bosh, YouTube user "Tony Parker"'s remix of Bleeding Palm's epic original short film that screened at the Borscht Film Festival last year.

Addicted to Twerking? Video Blames Florida for Booty-Shaking Habit

Categories: Viral Video

Meet Stevie. She was just your average 20-something girl, sweet, innocent, with a bright future. She took dance classes as a child. But then, a visit to the Sunshine State opened up her dark side.

"It all started when I was in Florida, visiting my grandma," she explains. "And I saw the music video for Juvenile's 'Back That Azz Up.' That's exactly what I did. I just backed my ass up."

Now, Stevie's addicted to twerking. She twerks behind dumpsters and in gas station bathrooms. She twerks while she does the laundry and gasses up her car.

Prancercise Lady Joanna Rohrback Presents John Mayer's New Song (VIDEO)

Categories: Viral Video

Prancercise Creator Joanna Rohrback: "I'm Against Riding a Horse ... Let the Horse Enjoy Its Free Will"

Categories: Viral Video

As you will soon learn, Joanna Rohrback has never actually prancercised alongside a horse.
Like wild mustangs galloping over the dusty Nevada horizon, it came our way without warning: a thing of raw, natural beauty.


As reported yesterday by New Times' equine dance-fitness bureau chief, Prancercise is a global multimedia phenomenon started by Coral Springs resident Joanna Rohrback.

In her book (Prancercise) and videos (Prancercise: A Fitness Workout), Rohrback evangelizes what she describes as "a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and is ideally induced by elation." But as Cultist learned in a phone call with Rohrback, the story of Prancercise is not one just of elation but of struggle, a healing journey back from the brink, and copyright infringement of the Funkadelic back catalogue.

Tan Mom Patricia Krentcil's Music Video Is the Worst Way to Start Your Morning

Categories: Viral Video

Tan Mom has a music video. It features lyrics like "I'm hotter than Octomom" and "It's Tan Mom, bitch." There are tacky green screen effects, and two unfortunate male background dancers, and a cringeworthy section featuring some bukkake-style sunscreen application.

Don't watch it.

Seriously, I'm just putting this out there because it's my job. You can still save your sanity and your Monday morning by simply not clicking. Don't do it.
