And Now, Your Weekly Video Miscellany

Well how-dee, it’s nearly Slut-O-Ween and the weather is promising to be as scary as that time your significant-other’s retainer touched your toothbrush after a long, dry night of mouth-breathing. If you’re like me, you’ll wear a snow suit under your prison guard costume because that’s what we do in Alaska. In celebration of the sexiest day of the year, we’ve compiled some of the scariest work from the past week, in which we were introduced to a freakishly small iPad, Nick Offerman‘s stache gave a speech more inspiring than Mittens and ba’Rock combined, and a man literally lost his head. And more!

5.  Made Man and Nick Offerman kicked-off Movember with a clip teaching us pussy-willow men how to grow a stache. Use of a hammer and nail are recommended, as is smelling wood. No joke there kids, wood makes hair grow. Be sure to click into YouTube for this one, as Made Men has a bunch of great clips like this one. Grab yer candy corns!

4. Googlers support gay marriage. The only thing scary about this video is that more companies don’t have the brass to stand up for what’s right. Human right. Know what I’m saying? Separate but sassy does not cut it, and Google took a minute to lay it down for ya. Equality. Google it.

New Era Brings Celeb Trash-Talk to Chicago’s Crosstown Rivalry

Last year, New Era delighted with a round of spots that featured Boston Red Sox fan John Krasinski and New York Yankees fan Alec Baldwin trading jabs in support of their respective teams. Donning New Era’s on-field hats, the campaign (created by agency Brooklyn Brothers) ran over the course of the 2011 MLB regular season, culminating in Baldwin’s “character” accidentally committing an act of arson after taunting Krasinski by burning a stack of Sox tickets.

This time around, New Era is focusing on a different baseball rivalry, casting two more members of the NBC Thursday night comedy lineup in starring roles. Written and produced by the team at Funny or Die, “Chicago vs. Chicago: Round 1″ finds Cubs supporter Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation) trash-talking with Southside native and White Sox fan, Craig Robinson (Darryl Philbin of The Office). Debuting today, the 60-second cut focuses on, among other things, Wrigley Field’s famous foliage, former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich‘s attempt to sell off President Obama’s vacant senate seat, and whether or not “havetalent” is one word.

And, for the record, you CAN get good pizza north of Division St. No; Gino’s East doesn’t count. Read an interview with Offerman and Robinson discussing the spot and their history with Chicago baseball here.
